A Date If You’re Me

Graham and I are going to see Black Swan today.  This is weeks later than everyone else, which is How Life Works when I have a regular job and he’s a sous chef.  I’ve said before that if you ever want to be alone on weekends and holidays, you should date a cook.  Or a valet driver, which is what he did when he wasn’t working in a kitchen.

(Although perhaps I shouldn’t have said “be alone.”  I just meant “without your significant other,” because the only times I’m alone are when I choose to be.  Like on Fridays, when my idea of a perfect night is to get drunk on wine and watch bad movies before I’m in bed by 10:30pm.  Not like on Saturdays, when I go to birthday parties and late bars with my friends because Graham doesn’t leave work until 2am.  The point was that if you require a kiss at midnight on New Year’s or just because every weekend night, probably you shouldn’t be me.)

(It is possible, though, that my Friday nights might get a little less alone, because Katie J’s spouse works late on Fridays, too, and she also likes to watch bad movies.  At Stephanie’s grilled cheese birthday party last night, we decided that on some future Friday nights, we’ll watch bad movies together.  She’ll make stuff with clay and I’ll drink and say things about it on the Internet.  This is how new friends happen!)

(If you ever want an awesome birthday party theme, I suggest turning 30 and stealing Stephanie’s idea.  If grilled cheese had been the theme of my prom, I would have been queen of that bitch.)

(I made onion-fennel-apple jam for the party.  Now my house smells like White Castles.  I’m not very upset about this.)

So anyway.  Since Sunday is the only day Graham and I are both off work, we’re going to see Black Swan.  All of you have already seen it, so maybe you could just listen to some music or something.
