The Inevitable Squee Post...  
So, yeah, today starts another seven day countdown until I see my beautiful girlfriend again. 

Don't worry--I'm not going to spam you all with Countdown Cards for another whole week.  Though that was mucho fun.  :D

Instead, I'm just going to squee that Tiff and I are going to see NIN in Charlotte next weekend and that I'm also introducing her to my best friend, Christy, and her husband, Myk.  I can't wait to introduce them to one another.  Christy has largely been the Voice of Reason in my life for almost 16 years now.  And my beautiful girlfriend is also a Voice of Reason for me.  I intend to set the two Voices of Reason down to a nice table for brunch and let them go at it, conversationally-speaking.  :D  It will be much fun to experience.

I suspect Myk will like Tiff a great deal, though I cannot tell you why I feel that way.  I just do.

But the real thing I am squeeful about is just having Tiff nearby again.  This is going to sound lame and sappy and all of those things, but I miss holding her hand. 

No, really. 

I miss it with an ache that's hard to describe.  Her fingers fit with mine in a way I've not experienced before. 

The other night I called her for an hour at 11pm my time--a quick call because I wanted to go to bed early that night.  It was 2am when we finally hung up and we had talked about everything under the sun.  I love that.  I love talking to her for three hours and feeling like it was only 20 minutes.  Finding myself refreshed and awake at the end of it, even dreading sleep despite the fact I have to be up in five hours to get ready for work.  I love that feeling.

Okay, I think I've made you all roll your eyes enough with the squeeing and the sap. 

I have a bit of cleaning to do before I call Tiff for our evening call.

Thank you for your patience with me and my tender heart.

Don't laugh at me, maybe I missed something. Have you two been together since Las Vegas or did this happen before long distance? Sorry if I missed something. That's great for you though!!!!

I'm not going to laugh at you because that's a very good question!

Last December, Tiff and I discovered that we were both interested in each other and had been for a while but hadn't talked about it. I then asked her on a date and she agreed.

Since then, we've been talking more and more, largely on the telephone and getting to know each other while being suckily 2000 miles apart. The Vegas trip was the first time we'd met face to face, yes. And we agreed that we worked so well together, that we would move up to the 'girlfriend' stage.

LDRs seem to be what I go for... My boss asked me the other day if I liked LDRs because I liked to travel or if I liked to travel because I liked LDRs... I haven't been able to answer her yet. LOL

Does that help? :)

And thanks! I'm very, very happy. :D

Oh Erin. You are mega cute, and I adore you and Tiff so. I hope next weekend is extra lovely for the both of you. Take pictures!!

Thank you, dearest! :D

And pictures! Right!

Tiff is bringing her camera I think, so yes! Pictures!

Of something, I'm sure...

As for the LDR stuff...do you have any tips/secrets/stuff for coping? This is my fourth LDR and I feel like I'm just this time learning how to do it better.

I'm always up for more learning, though.

And when do you see your girl next? I hope soon.
replevin for a cow.: fell down from heaven landed herequasiradiant on June 3rd, 2006 06:38 pm (UTC)
secrets for coping? i kind of wish i did. it's a daily struggle. it's all about staying connected, sharing the things you can possibly share, being honest about how you feel, even when what you feel is angry or sad. other than that--it's a struggle.

(phonesex. i think the trick is phonesex. ;))

and... i'm not sure when i see her next? i need to start working so i can get the money to buy a ticket... oy. SUCKS.
seftiri: Dinosaur Comics Sex Sceneseftiri on June 4th, 2006 05:34 pm (UTC)
It certainly is a struggle but I agree with the staying connected part. Tiffany and I have a closed LJ community just for us that we use to write to one another or work together on posts or just talk during the day when the cell phone isn't feasible. We got the idea from another LDR couple that appeared on a Featured LJ User type thingy. It's worked very well.

(ah, phonesex! gotcha! LOL)

As for not working yet so can't buy a ticket yet? I know too well the feeling and it does SUCK. I'm sorry. I'll say a few words that that resolves quickly for you.

Awww! I love the squeeing, it's just....cute? if I can be so bold as to use that word. In a screwed up way it's like living that part of me & my girls relationship all over again & it's just kind of nice. She was living in NC when I met her & I live out in the same area as Tiff, so it's just kind of fun to watch you both progress & it makes me happy.

Gah, I'm rambling....lets blame it on the paint fumes. :D
seftiri: DiMar Squeeseftiri on June 3rd, 2006 03:30 pm (UTC)
No, thank you! I take inspiration from all my friends' relationships, yours included, so I am glad to know that we are a) cute and b) reminicent of a time in your life. :)

Paint fumes? Lucky brother to have such a sister. ;)

Yay! Welcome to the world of long distance relationships. :) you should AIM me sometime! And this time, get pics of you two!!
seftiri: Mar Grinseftiri on June 3rd, 2006 03:32 pm (UTC)
Yes, the world of the LDR!

Any tips/coping ideas from you? I like to collect LDR ideas/coping etc. This is my fourth LDR but I only now feel like I'm doing it better...

And I'm working on pics, really!

I love a good squee post. After reading the post from the 1st, it was even better!

I also welcome you to the world of LDR. It's a very interesting thing, but sounds like you and Tiffany have it down pat already. *Aw*

And was going to leave you alone about the pictures... but now I'm not. Take pictures woman!

I'm starting to think that everyone on my list is a M&M-sorting-lesbian/bi-in-an-LDR... O_o

How did that happen?? LOL

And yes, pics! Working on it, I swear! :D

Awwww... You to are just too cute. But you have to counteract the written sap with sappy pictures. Yes. You do. I mean it.

I will do what I can! :D

Awwww! This made me throw up a little! (That's a good thing). I didn't roll my eyes at all, I promise. I really enjoy reading your journal, and hopefully when I get some more time on my hands, I'll be able to prance around in older entries.

What? No more countdown cards? I liked those. They were pretty.
