I've been watching the Queer Eye marathon and apparently I'm the biggest cryer ever. I've bawled through 2 of the 3 episodes I've watched thus far. Luckily the next epi is one I've already seen so I'm going to switch the channel and not cry anymore today. (Hopefully) This military guy wedding episode is making me bawl repeatedly. He and his wife were married in Colombia, but for some reason it doesn't count here in the US. He is going to be shipped out very soon for a year and a half. The gay boys redid the apartment totally and have provided all sorts of things for the family like groceries for a year and new clothes for he baby. They also did a crate care package for the guy with things like undies, tennis shoes and other things for him while he is over in Iraq. The other that made me cry was a proposal at the Jets game. It was so totally sweet and he looked so hot after the makeover. Coworker was totally right about me. She said when she first met me she thought I was mean and jaded, but really I'm just a girlie girl. Damn. All that work creating a persona down the drain.
This morning I went to the Pikes Place Market and joined folks from a group called Meet In. It is like organized playdates for grown-ups. I decided earlier this year that I need straight friends. I love the gays, but once in awhile it would be nice to have real girls to do stuff with. I can't remember where I heard about Meet In, but it wasn't as bad as I worried in my head it would be. I met 2 people and we wandered around the market just chatting and had lunch. It was nice. The group does all sorts of different activities so now that I've broken the ice, I may join in other activities.
Right now I have stew boiling on the stove. It smells so yummy. I can't wait to dig into it. It is the perfect dinner for a cold rainy day like today has been.
Matty, I am well aware I have misspelled crier but it is for stylistic purposes so get over it. :)
