Quote Du Jour:
"You can lose yourself. Everything. All boundaries. All time. That two bodies can become so mixed up that you don't know who's who or what's what. And just when the sweet confusion is so intense you think you're gonna die. You kind of do. Leaving you alone in your separate body. But the one you love is still there. That's the miracle. You can go to heaven and come back alive. Go back anytime you want with the one you love." Robin Williams as Anthony in Bicentennial Man.

Last night, Jessie came over to the house. We had pizza delivered and rented a movie. We usually go to the movie rental store and spend what seems like hours trying to pick something out. This time, I let her be in charge. Whatever she picked out would be fine, I told her... as long as it made me laugh.

She picked up Bicentennial Man. From the previews I had seen, I was worried that the movie wouldn't be funny enough for me... but it did have Robin Williams, so I didn't worry much. As it was, I did laugh quite a bit... but I was also touched when he gave his definition of sexual relations. (See Quote du jour above).

Even before my first sexual experience, I knew there had to be a difference between sex and making love. At the time, some friends laughed. Even today, some would disagree with that line of thought. But I still believe in it. And I've had a little taste of what it's like to make love to someone... and as great of a feeling as it is, it's something that I've never really had a good definition for... until I saw this movie. And I think this quote hits the nail on the head perfectly. (1505)


Sorry there was no entry yesterday. I've been busy. My involvement with the my local fire department has increased a bit because they've been a little busier. My projects at work are also taking up more of my time. The funny things is, I'm really enjoying being busy.

Last summer, I sat on my ass the entire summer. I didn't amount to much. And for the most part, I was miserable. This summer, I'm getting into just about anything I can find. The summer is flying by (which is sort of depressing), but it's such a great feeling to be able to look back on my time and see the things I've been able to accomplish. It's also great to look back and compare it to my Spring... And those two can't even compare.

I don't think I was an alcoholic or anything, but I did my fair share of drinking during the Spring semester. And usually, if I had one beer... I would have at least five or six more. And I don't think anyone was as big of a vodka junkie as I was. And the weird thing was... I didn't drink to make my problems go away or anything like that... Because usually, I would drink and my problems (Lindsay) would show up.

This summer, I've taken the time to work through many of my issues. I've done my best to accomplish things for myself. And the only alcohol I've had was a couple of beers at a little office gathering last month. What can I say? As of now, I'm happy. Granted, that's subject to change at a moment's notice... but for now, I'm happy. And compared to three months ago, that's major progress. (1516)
