bikes and rain

You know they don't always mix very well do they? Coming to a stop at the Catholic Church traffic lights on my way home I felt the bike begin to skid sideways a little on the wet road. It's got a bad camber there really. There wasn't much I could do about it it seemed and in the end I just kind of topped over sideways. Fortunately very slowly. Couple of bumps and grazes on my left leg, probably from tangling with the bike rather than anything else, as I fell over to the right. I cycled more slowly the rest of the way. I did look funny by the time I got home though: party dress, Docs and socks, Keep Mordor Tidy tshirt and damp jacket over dress, and oily black marks up one leg and on my hands from putting the chain back on.

Much to my smugness it appears summer isn't over just yet. One swallow doesn't make a summe and it appears one rainstorm doesn't make an autumn. Although it's lovely and cool out there as well as bright and sunny and all the rain as washed the air clean. Pretty day.


So I'm not completely mono, I've known this for years. But Richard is definitely somewhat more poly than me. And going through a rough patch at the moment makes me more insecure and hence less good at dealing with it. But hell he's good at making me feel better about stuff, we talked and well stuff until about 3 last night, which was a bit silly really with the alarm going off at 8, but never mind, well worth it.

It would help if there was anyone I was much interested in at the moment, I guess. But still, we've talked about limits, where they should be now and the fact that they might move in the future as I get more comfortable with stuff and used to the idea. And I give him my blessing though it makes me nervous.

[No longer friends-only]


A couple of my friends are having birthdays in the near future, and I just had to ask one of them to remind me what day it was on because I couldn't remember, just that it was the 2mumbleth of September. As a result I've decided to keep a birthday book (plain text file:-). So if you want me to remember your birthday let me know when it is, preferably including year so I can embarrass you when you reach significant numbers.
