Long TIme No Hear

For anyone following my blog or reading my blog - sorry for the MIA. It's been a long, crazy few months. I moved, I landed a new - albeit temporary (and not all that desirable) - gig, I fell in love, yadda yadda yadda.

So, what else is new?

I spent the weekend with my new beau - WineBoy. I guess that's a good name for him. Who really knows? I love him to death, but there are definitely some things we need to work through. One of the major ones being his "superior" approach to food and wine. Not that it's not well-earned. But, still...

We went downtown today. Theoretically to take me to the Aquarium. I wanted to see the Shark and Ray Touch Tank. Which, btw, TOTALLY worth it. How cool is it to touch exotic sea animas?!?! Of course, then the excursion turned into him shopping for exquisit food and wine.

Fast forward. I'm supposed to pick out a spot for lunch/dinner. As I have christened it - Lunner.

I picked out a spot that had quite the random menu and not so great a wine list. And, while I was choosing a wine, was shaken a head at what I selected. Discussion ensued.

Here's where my insecurity falls in. And there's no resolution - just admission. He knows way more than I do about "What goes with what" and "what's "better" than what." But I know what I like. A Foodie probably would shudder at someone putting ketchup on their eggs or mayo on their chips/fries. But if that's what someone likes... Hell, I like to put horseradish+ketchup on my baked potatoes. So, it feels really intimidating to dine out with someone who "knows" what's right and what's not.

It's something I need to deal with. Come to terms with. Have a discussion about. But we'll see when I get the gumption to do it. This wells up a lot of my issues - hello therapy! But I don't think it's insurmountable. I guess we'll find out.

Wow - randomness for first post back. I'll have to back-fill some other time, I guess. All the fun and random stuff that has made the past few months blog-worthy. But, for now, I guess that's what's on my mind...
