Lazy Day

What a nice, lazy kind of day. Slept in late, went to Cafe Brazil for breakfast with D, worked on the desk all afternoon. That was actually kind of frustrating. I am trying to put it all together now and it's proving so much harder than I anticipated. All of these trim pieces have to be nailed and glued to the outside of the desktop and nailing stuff is a lot harder than I remember. I bent at least 3 of the nails in half, plus I dinged up all the trim with the hammer and scratched it with the clamp I was using to hold the trim till I could get the nails in. So after this I'm going to have to touch up all the paint. Again.

On the bright side, it turns out one way to get D to laugh is to storm into the apartment and declare, "I'm not as good at nailing as I am at screwing!"

Usually, my entrendres are intentionally double, but my mind was totally on woodworking so it took me a bit to figure out what he was laughing at. Speaking of which, the language of construction is very masculine, isn't it?

I wondered today whether last night's blog was a little too personal, involved...but now I think that's stupid. What's the point of journaling with censorship? I may not have sex in my "interests" page--a la Professor Lockhart--but it's still as much a part of my life as anything else. (Or at least the idea of it is...maybe not sex itself...but yeah.) How can I keep any kind of journal if I don't mention my period, ovulating, fights with my fiance, LONG DRY SPELLS...whatever is on going on in my mind or my body? Isn't that the whole point of this experiment?

It's a bit wierd, isn't it; blogging...I just try to remember that I'm writing for my own benefit and not for that of anyone reading, so I won't censor for them either. Like it says, read at your own risk....I like being your cyber-voyeur as well. :)
