on the subject of filters…
I’m sick to death of ’em… So they’re outta here. There are some that I will keep for the privacy of others, but for the most part, my posts are going to be public or friends-only from here on out. I might start removing old filters and turning those into friends only posts, since I guess I’m just over the concept of LJ-drama. I’m happy with people reading my journal, but reading INTO it is another matter entirely. It’s so much easier to e-mail/IM/ask me directly if something’s up. I’m not sure where LJ/Blogger turned the corner from online diary to “this is how I will let the world know my inner feelings without having to say them directly.” but I’ve had it up t’here with it. 🙂
Now, all that said, I had a nice dinner date last night with MG (ok, names will still be nicked to protect the “innocent”) at Sesto Senso in Dupont, the movie on Wednesday with ES was a lot of fun too. Going out on dates with more than one person or “dating around” always makes me a little edgy, as I don’t want it to feel like a competition like it did with one of my ex’s. But I was very impressed and relieved
when I was chatting with ES and he asked if my dinner on Thursday was a date and didn’t appear to flinch about it.
I don’t need to go into details or anything, but I can’t say “I’m having dinner with a friend.” it’s either “Dinner in Dupont” or “A dinner date in Dupont” – whichever the person I’m talking to seems most comfortable with.
answers to “So what’d you do last night?” Honesty is simply so much easier.
And on a totally unrelated note, I really want this.
Mmmmm, liberating.. like walking out on a windy day in linen pants with no underwear on… 😛
