it never gets old
I don't think it matters what part of life you're in, a date with yourself is always a good thing.  I almost always get sushi.  Not just a date with yourself and a book, or a date with yourself and a paper, or a bartender, or an argument, or a problem, or an idea... but a date really with yourself where you dress up and ask yourself questions and re-calibrate and mull good and bad things over.  Actually there.  It's always a good thing, it never gets old.  I've been strangely emotional again lately, tearing up over the behind the scenes comments of Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, and outside the door of McLeod, wanting to let complete strangers and micro-acquaintances and longtime friends all know that I miss them and want to know them better.  Writing down personal questions for people I don't know if I'll ever ask.  Reading 10 books at once (vice magazine articles, I Am A Strange Loop, Please Kill Me, The Dip, Myths of Innovation, the ones I can recall offhand), watching 3 movies in a row (Cache, Conversations with Other Women, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind), going to Ben Exworthy's birthday pajama slumber pool parties at the McMansion on a whim, spin the bottle like we're in highschool, walking around in soft slippers, running into naked people, juggling a million projects and ideas on my plate but really I should just be going out to other people's things and responding to other people's worlds rather than forcing my own things onto everyone.  I really should just savor everything that's happening.
