    I'll tell you sometime about the Great Delousing of '06. But not today, son. You're not ready.

    Went to a counseling session last night with my girlfriend's addiction counselor, but this was more of a "relationship counseling" type meeting. We had some bumps in the road, and in some weird way that was a good thing, because I stopped having the appearance of being perfect, and she lost a bit of that need to overcompensate by way of feeling guilty about everything.

    Not getting into nitty gritty details, but I had been very supportive and caring since she went into rehab, and everyone just began assuming I was this picture perfect person, which is far from the truth and not something I was trying to do, but not something I dissuaded either. It was ridiculous for either of us to assume I had not been affected by her addiction, and that I hadn't acted out inappropriately in my own ways.

    So whereas the past week (since New Year's Eve) basically sucked ass, last night was extremely productive, and we walked home literally hand in hand, probably looking disgustingly affectionate. We had store-bought sushi for dinner, and after some convincing, she finally set the firepit that I bought her for Christmas out in the yard while I did dishes, and we made hot spiced (non-alcoholic) cider, and sat out and watched the fire, and talked for hours. That was our original plan for NYE, and it finally was the right thing.

    Oh, and the sex.
