my state was mostly pms and a stomach bug, both of which, mercifully, are
gone.  i spent friday afternoon with wally, had an interesting time.  we
argued, amicably, had good pizza, no beer.  might have softened us up.
surprisingly enough, the big revelation of the weekend was that i think
i'm finally getting over him.  perhaps i'm really just getting over the
idea of needing a man.  not to say i don't want that sort of person in my
life, i just am becoming more patient about finding him.  there's someone
i'm "working on" now who i want to get into bed but don't want to commit
to.  unfortunately, he's that "commitment" type.  i hate that, sometimes!

at any rate, i'm in my "let's *use* men" mode, don't take anything i say
without a keg of salt.
