Uh oh.

Illuminata, I think Bleu is talking to Miles.

Oh, Miles has started beating the bush about meeting.

Hmmm. Does "beating the bush" mean something like "googling the python," but for the opposite sex?

I can't believe I just wrote that. Back to lecture-writing. Now.

Oops, I neglected to add "around" in that sentence. Not the same as googling the python.

Miles has pumped up the meeting volume. He is talking about coming within a few hours of ttville. I think he wants to meet yesterday.

Not a good sign.

I'd say this is a great sign. He's very anxious to meet you.

I went to Geheim's concert, which was a lot of fun and great start to my resolution to get out more to campus and area events.

I wouldn't make too much of it.  If you can meet him yesterday, make a date.  You are interested.

Ohmygoodness!!! WHY didn't you say hello afterward??!?!? Hope you liked it. For those who are wondering - it was an evening of Brahms (songs and piano pieces) ending with the Liebeslieder Waltzer, Op. 52. YUMMY!!!

Wait, Noof'd...if Miles had been talking to Bleu (and do you mean Old Bad Bleu or New and Improved Bleu?) that would mean he's invented an existential crisis related to his strong attraction to you and his fear of it. I hope to god that's not what you mean. Otherwise, {passes wine bottle} you're in for a long night. heh.

Pry, how's the pryson's officiant's license coming along?

Sadly, it's the old bad Bleu.

I tried to wait for you. I'm drinking hefewizen tonight.

Parting is such sweet sorrow.

OH snap! You got the "I can't drive that far bc my workaholism will get in my way" speech? dangit.

However, there is apparently a cure for that. I don't know what it is, but there seems to be one.

Possibly the *hope* and *desire* for sex, but he became New & Improved without -mizing.
But then again, Bleu is a very tres complicated boy.

Not quite. He's already talking about the what-ifs. Will I move there? He's willing to move here. He's got that love will conquer all sentiment. Not good.

Oh, it doesn't help that True has called several times to invite me to dinner this weekend. Miles is beginning to sound a little True-like clingy.

So sad ... I was really looking forward to, well ... you know. Heh

Temptation wrote back within 45 minutes of my post,
from the other side of the planet. 

He studied Yoga with (one of) my teacher's teacher, in India. 

He lived for years in my homestate at famous Yoga Center.

His prose is so clear and direct, it cut right through me.

I have the sense I am too corrupt for him.

Clearly, the boy has taste.
