He's back!

I feel like such a child, but I'm just giddy. I know that it's silly to have my emotional states tied to another person so closely, but I really do have fun with him and I've missed having regular cuddling and closeness.

In other news, CityFriend has a blog for Punctual that I keep checking out. He's so cute. This morning, it triggered the memory of a particular baby picture of me.

First, it's important to let you know that my parents weren't big photographers, and I think that they had photoed themselves out with my sister. There are a few pictures of me as a baby, but mostly as a toddler and many of them were taken by my aunt.

But there is one picture of me in a little blue dress, with no hair, and these baby shoes with my name on the sole of one foot and my birthdate on the sole of the other. The shoes had been given to my parents by their dentist, Dr. Collis. He did this for all newborns of his patients.

The picture was a studio shot - the only one I've seen of me as an infant - and one of those portrait sizes. I felt proud of it in a way that I felt proud of few things. Sometime during moves or cleaning or something the picture disappeared. I haven't thought about it in years. I wonder if it is still around?

I don't think it's silly at all. Isn't that what love's meant to do?

Although I don't know why I'm typing this. It's not like you're going to be reading it when you could be IN BED instead...

Aww, you enjoy yourself Spinny.

Incidentally, I couldn't say it earlier in the week because my net connection was being petulant, but I LOVE the photo of you kissing yourself. It is amazing.

Hi sexy, good to see you're in good spirits.

I was wondering if you could do me a favour? I am trying out a new anonymous proxy server. I would like to know if it is working. would you mind looking my visit up on your site tracker and let me know what IP adress you get?

I'll try, although I don't have my site tracker saved as a favorite anymore and it's not the same as the site counter I have. I think I can find the web address on my template though. So I'll look and let you know.
