kirby1024: Me with tribal-esque facepaint and serious expression (Face Forward)
So, I've been realising how little I've been posting in LJ, figured I'd quickly rectify that, considering there's been a few big events in the last couple of weeks.

Wedding Weekend!
So, A couple of weekends ago, I had the privelige of going to two weddings in one weekend! It was extremely exciting.

First wedding was Hannah and [ profile] littlesir's wedding on Saturday night, which quite frankly was absolutely beautiful and brilliant. I'm proud of myself - I didn't cry, although I was close to it at the start of the ceremony. I got called up as a signer for the marriage certificate, which I was quite happy about. There was group singing, a beautiful piece by [ profile] minxdragon,Hannah's father was the priest... It was honestly the most beautiful and celebratory wedding I have ever been too, and you could just feel it through the entire wedding. You could tell that every step of the wedding was specially chosen to say exactly what they wanted to say. It was a wonderful, fantastic night.

The Sunday was [ profile] nquisitor and Edmund's wedding, which was a registry office affair, the first registry office wedding I'd ever been too. I have to admit, totally different character to the previous night's wedding, and much more traditional, although just watching the couple, I have to say it's quite clear they made the right choice - you can see the total love in their eyes. Quite spectacular. Also, the Registry offices are so incredibly pretty! I had no idea!

Masquerade Ball!
Last weekend, I went to the Labyrinth Masquerade Ball with [ profile] not_in_denial, [ profile] being_bec and [ profile] laza_burns. We got all dressed up (even bought myself a proper dinner shirt and all), got me a blue & gold mask, basically topped ourselves up to the nines. Alas, no photos, but watch this space - hopefully I'll get a few from some of the other photographers that were around.

To be honest though, the night was not all that impressive, truth be told. We'd all gone expecting a real ball. I mean, the venue was top-notch, and the decorations were really quite good at evoking a great atmosphere... That then got brutally stabbed repeatedly by the music. The music turned what would have been a lovely, classy night out into what was basically a costume party, and really spoiled what we'd wanted to be there for.

There were some good live acts (although the first violin/dance act was absolutely appalling, and went on for what must have been at least 20 minutes or so), including Wendy Rule, who actually did a bit to build up a bit of atmosphere, but the selection of music otherwise was a whole bunch of 80s hits and geek anthems - which is fantastic at a geek party, but was not what I was expecting from a Masquerade Ball. I would have even appreciated more appearances of the Labyrinth soundtrack - but even then, I heard one track for the 4-5 hours I was there.

Still, wasn't a total loss - During Wendy Rule's set I got to dance with [ profile] not_in_denial, which is the first time ever I've got to dance with him, and to be honest that really made my night. I got that whole romantic looking into his eyes, the whole room vanishing, everything. God I love him. So very, very much.

Also, got the number of an extremely cute art piece boy. I mean, walking around topless in devil body paint (apparently he was one of the art exhibits in the art competition - number 50 if I recall)... just did something for me. Must remember to call him tonight...

Gym Time!
I finally bit the bullet and set myself up at the gym near my work. This morning, in theory anyway, should have been my first session, but that does not appear to have happenned, since I forgot my shoes and my gym shirt. Ah well, better luck tomorrow, I guess!

I'm actually looking forward to it - I quite liked gymming when I was at Monash, I'm sad that I let it lapse (but then, Phone Monkeying did not allow for easy gymming, what with a lack of schedule and all.

Cute Fishies!
In other news, Harry and Larry (the goldfish at work) are choosing today to be especially cute. See?!

Cut for big piccies of cute fishies )

I may have previously mentioned about how my mum didn't take my previous boyfriend so well. So, I figured that considering the many interesting characteristics of my beloved [ profile] not_in_denial, that I would ease my mother into him, take the revelations slowly and surely, and try very hard not to freak my mum out.

So, I went to my parents' place for dinner tonight, and found out that my mum had already found out. Apparently found [ profile] not_in_denial's LJ through my own and read up on my boy. Amazingly enough, took everything else in their stride. The trans-ness, the poly-ness, my mum took pretty much without incident. She noted that she spent some time just being amused by the absurdity of the trans situation, but that was about the most of her reaction.

This has had me rather... bewildered, really. I was so not expecting my mum to be as positive about the whole thing as she was. Kinda cool, actually, just so entirely unexpected.

Oh, and since I know that both of you read this now... Hi Mum! Hi Dad! *waves* Hope you enjoyed the tickle video previously!

Me and [ profile] proxyryan had our first official date last night. He came over to my house, and I arranged the delicious meal (after which we sat and watched DVDs (well, okay, we watched DVDs some of the time)), and I kinda went flat-out. I ended up making Mushroom and Cashew Stroganoff, because Stroganoff always sounded like a delicious dish. I also ended up buying a nice bottle of wine to go with it, because hell, that's just me. Of course, I also made delicious desserts of peach slices in jelly, with candy sprinkles on top. As one might naturally expect, it all went down a fantastic treat, meeting my boy's seal of approval. We ended up watching The Incredibles, drank some very nice wine, and then retired to bed. And I'll leave it tasteful for my dear readers by noting that last night was a fucking awesome night!

Honestly, I cannot begin to describe how fantastic he makes me feel. But I'll try anyway. When I'm with him, I honestly feel like I can completely relax. He makes me feel totally at ease. I feel completely safe around him. In a lot of ways, he makes me feel so safe that I can be myself again. I think I commented to him that I felt like he'd found a part of me that I feel like I'd lost for quite some time. In a lot of ways, he reminds me so much of me, which I guess is why I'm so at ease with him - how can I possibly distrust myself with me? I can just sense from him that he has a good heart, a beautiful soul if you like. Hell, from the moment I met him I knew it. He feels like a good person. How can I not love that?

Of course, many of my readers have been clamouring for photos... So, I present to you me and my [ profile] proxyryan...

Pic cut because I still don't have Photoshop )

Of course, today was my first day at the new job. [ profile] proxyryan was generous enough to drive me down to work, of which I'm eternally grateful for. At the very least, I got to show my boyfriend off to my boss. :)

In theory I'm supposed to be training, but I much prefer to call what I went through today a baptism by fire. Today was the first day of Santa at Southland, so naturally tons of adults and kids were lining up. So naturally, the first hour of work was absolutely flat out. The number of kids coming through, the number of sales, the speed at which I was forced to learn to use the register... insane, I swear. Heart-pounding stuff. Still, as is natural in working with kids, some incredibly cute moments. It's very cute watching the kids being scared of Santa, and even cuter watching the kids who, after walking off, suddenly running back to hug Santa. Also, [ profile] thingalon and Bec came down to say hello, which was a wonderful surprise.

And oh my god do my feel hurt. I mean, it wasn't that long a shift, but even so, 5 1/2 hours of standing up was a very evil reminder that I haven't worked in retail for a very long time. Ah well, I'm sure I'll manage to toughen up. But my god...

Last night was a very good night. :)

That is all. I may elaborate later. Maybe.
