Richard & I have three anniversaries - we first got "together" on his 21st birthday, then we were very confused for a while, then we got together "properly" - and the date when we decided we were together "properly" was 1st February. So 9th November is our "unofficial" anniversary, and 1st February is our "official" anniversary. And 1st August is our "half-"anniversary, because February and November are both crap months ;)
So we have now been together "officially" for 8 years (and unofficially for quite a bit more). We Are Old.
I have a problem. I am wearing a black cardigan, and black trousers. And they clash.
Washing has made the cardigan become a sort of browny-black - with "bright" black satin edges where the two halves meet. The trousers have become a kind of blue-black, like ink. They are both black, but different shades. Shades of black. How freaking bizarre.
(Yep, I've made this observation before - I've been wearing mostly black for quite a few years, now. But it still surprises me.)
This is a fascinating article: The Cuddle Puddle of Stuyvesant High School (link courtesy of the lovely skibbley). About a bunch of bisexual, ethically non-monogamous teenagers in New York. Now all I want is a time machine, so I can go 10 years into the future and find out how many of them become bisexual polyamorous adults.
