...i feel good...

'uhuru' - ramsey lewis


looks like autumn has nearly beaten down summer. the evenings are cooler & i am able to snuggle with my bear & seal (don't ask - they're my bed buddies...)
am also able to layer clothes and not just wear one tank top (yeah, ok, i know layering was a nineties thing, but i like it)
and soon the food here will get tasty - mushrooms, seafood, fish, and NABE! Woohoo!
Nothing like a good nabe to make you feel warm and cozy.

so, how am i? i'm good.
i feel a lot better for my long rambling cathartic scribblings last week.
also spent some time with frangipani at the weekend, which was refreshing. hadn't been to kichijioji for a long time - too long - and now i want to go back again and again and again...it's such a funky place.
full of cool & interesting people - and so many shops where i want to spend stupid amounts of money on silly things that have no clear functionability.

what else? hmmm...
do like a boy who shall remain nameless at this point. don't know how to proceed because i don't know if he's interested or not. does anyone have some secret test so i can find out? i don't want to make a fool of myself, but i don't want to waste away my life. sometimes i think, yes, maybe he IS interested. then other times, i think, no, there's no chance in hell.
so, what does a girl do? i wish it were simpler and i could just go up to him, tell him, and then he would say yes or no...but it doesn't work like that. now we're adults, we can't say what we REALLY feel/want. don't like that. so intead, i just hope and flirt a bit.
AND then there's the cultural thing - i can't work out j-boys.

they fascinate me because i don't know what they're thinking. i mean it's bad enough trying to work out a boy from the same culture, but one from a totally different culture? wow...
so yes, there's a j-boy-man that i am going a bit fluffy over - but i don't what to do...
HELP!!!!!

If you fancy him then be bold and tell him so,,,, tell him that if he feels the same then perhaps he could suggest a meeting/date so that you can get to know each other. What a compliment to him to have a young lady make such a comment,,,,,, with honesty and openness. What an admirable thing for a young lady to do in this new world

nooooooo, i dont think that will work with j-boys!!! But on the other hand, im not sure what does work. Most of my tried and tested techniques are for more, er, short-term engagements...

Eye contact is a big thing tho, lots of it, and i love this quote recently "be more provocative and interesting than anything else in their environment". Its a technique from the horse whisperer, but apparently its supposed to work in all different directions.

(and thats what hes doing to you...!)

how do you let a man know you like him? Flirt like crazy!! eye contact, smile, don't be afraid to touch him when talking to him - laugh at his jokes, grab his arm and basically show you're enjoying his company. Men are very simple creatures!!
