I surrendered to my sister's tastes and read Twilight by Stephenie Meyer... I thoroughly enjoyed the first third of the book, and after that I could feel her stretching out the story... of course, that part you read anyways - obsessively, but with little admiration. The last third was at least decent. Anyone have any cool/interesting things that they noticed about that book/story/characters/etc., if they've read it? I love to see all the different views with literature :)
Slept with a guy a few weeks ago. It was... interesting. It was fun, hot, mature (?), reckless, an adventure; with an experienced, understanding, sweet, and polite partner; a fitting first time to my character, in the broad morning light.
We agreed that it'd be one of those things that happens again, as long as there's no drama and that no one at work finds out. He's jovial/cordial enough at work (our paths don't actually intercept too much, which is great); I'm mostly just very professional around him, and usually busy with my own thing. In any case, I haven't heard from him, and the couple times I've texted him, he hasn't replied. I don't know how to interpret my feelings about this, seeing as I don't know what my feelings are. I don't seem to care, really... Neither one of us was planning on any emotional involvement with each other, so it's easy in that sense. It would have been a fun little summer affair to have, sexually, though. Still, it hurts... I think... :S Maybe it's the generic pain of anticipating more of something and not getting it. Or of briefly finding a rare (at least in my case) connection with someone, with communication that is spectacularly honest - and then losing it just as strangely as it emerged.
