Went to the court house.

I picked up my wife after she got off work and we drove to the family court to file various divorce application forms. The clerk in training was very helpful, showing us where to make corrections and explaining the forms. She also took our sworn statements and notarized them. I gave her $447 worth of money orders to cover the court fees. As long as everything was done properly, around about May/June, my wife and I will be exes.

I drove my wife back to her car and brushed the snow from it, as mine was already clear. She said, "You're being nicer to me than when we were married", a reference to the fact that we haven't considered ourselves as "married" in a very long time.

I said, "I used to scrape the ice from your car before I went to work in the morning."

"Not all the time."

Meh.

So, we meet again. Sort of.

Three years ago, an online relationship of mine ended rather badly. Stupidity, with a mix of uncertainty and immaturity was my part of its failure. A week ago we tentatively reconnected and have been talking on the phone.

It looks like we will meet in Toronto in February and come back to Kingston for several days. I am a happy and optimistic fellow.

I feel mouthy tonight

That might explain my outpouring of comments hither and yon. Must be the beer and a sense of loneliness. I'm lacking in erudition, so I won't bother trying to put it into words.

My dislike of English Composition in high school is a tragedy, sometimes.

Off the cuff, based on five words I pulled from a photo.

The white christmas is over
The new year will soon start to get old
Snow lies against the fences
And in the alleys
Not all of the decorations
Have been taken down
In the industrial park
Christmas lights and barbed wire

4:45 is three hours too early.

I'd like to see it arrive about eightish, really. Sorry, I'm too tired to come up with anything clever. Ha. Tired has nothing to do with it.

I should probably update.

Still going to work every day.
Still not following Canada's Nutrition Guide.
Still don't sleep properly.
Still want things I can't or shouldn't have.

And...

Things I'm sure haven't happened to me before.

Received hugs from random men and women.

Got a fair number of kisses on my cheek from friendly women who were unknown to me.

Had my head rubbed by a woman at the bar as she was leaving with her drink.

Had my tummy patted and was complimented on by my "look" by a man who I suspect was gay. It wasn't upsetting, just a bit surreal, perhaps.

Was invited to come and take pictures of a band with a catchy, if double-entendrish name--Liquor Box.
