(six) Friday afternoon person

November 7, 2008

After this week of abuse and fear, you walked in for our appointment and thanked me for being so easy to talk to.  You’ve restored my faith, so  thank you.

You are the author of one of my favourite books. You were so mean and weird when I met you, I ended up crying in Burger King. You made me doubt.

We became friends at camp, vowing to remain virgins forever. Fast forward: you made my first alcoholic drink, we sang Reba songs, you fought with my sister. We laughed often.

Cheerful, tangled memories.

Just realised that tomorrow was the anniversary I had with Jason (see x365 post a couple entries down). That explains why he popped into my mind.

I often find myself thinking of people and not knowing why; February is a month of my grandmother. This is when I flew out to be with her after the death of my grandfather. It’s also the last time I saw her healthy. I flew back six months later to sit beside her as she died.

I loved you so deep I found myself, and lost myself. Burned into my memory, my love of fourteen years ago. I remember the feel of your hair. The curls.

I was upside down on the fireman’s pole, you tried to kiss me, I fell and chipped my tooth. I had to have it filed – it tasted like powdered tooth.

You are the only person that’s put soap in my mouth – me and your son. Years later, you and Mom plotted our first date; funny, we both turned out gay.

365 days of Christmas each year. (a song title, I kid you not)

Snatching little moments here and there for my new compulsion – x365. I’m going to put up an info sheet about it soon, but in the meantime if you’re curious go to the main website!

Only discovered it yesterday so haven’t had a very good look ’round, but it appears to be a lovely idea. You create a list of 365 people who have touched your life in some way. Then you make one entry in your blog per day – with the same number of words as your age. So if you’re thirty (represent! what what!) you write thirty words about your person of the day.

I promptly got out my orange lover of a notebook and began adding names. I’m in the high 200s at this point. I love this kind of shit. I’ll probably write my first x365 entry later today.

What do you think of this? Are you compelled to suddenly number lines on paper and scribble down your 365?
