Lisa-time, me-time

Our reunion ended on a cliffhanger, where *Skins SPOILERS* Tony gets hit by a bus, Sid finds Cassie, and Angie breaks up with Chris. But finishing a season means we have the chance to start something new (or resume another show), and we tend to alternate between comedy and drama, sweet and savoury, while surrounded by kitties in the little nest we make for ourselves.

Cats warm their balls in your hair and make eye contact to show dominance.

I didn’t realize how hard it was to go a whole month without her until I saw her again. The time we’ve spent over the last few years has made me comfortable enough to let my guard down, and it’s good to be reminded that we’re capable of such things every now and then, especially when still dealing with trust issues and emotional trauma.

The things we share are often small and simple, as they’re mostly about pleasures and we’re easily pleased. Actually, it’s more like she’s easily pleased, while I’m pleased when others are happy. It’s a dynamic that works really well for both of us. I love myself when I’m with her cause she appreciates me in all the intricate ways I want to be appreciated, and that gives me a lot of the validation I need in my life right now.


  1. I’m not easily pleased, you just make me happy. Well, maybe I’m a little easy.

    • Or maybe it’s both, that would explain how effortless it all is.

  2. Hey, that cat has the eyes of a chipmunk :)

    • I agree. I call them almond eyes, cause they remind me of the eyes of certain Asian people.

      • In defence of almond eyes: Harrison Ford, Tom Cruise, Jessica Biel, Emma Watson don’t have round eyes. The thing is round eyes look less focused and less purposeful.

  3. Your place looks as comfy as she looks….

    • It’s her place in the picture, actually.
