Make your own Smurf joke.

Hello, my name is Ryan and I have a girlfriend now.

This has been an official thing (or rather, she sent the request on Facebook, which totally makes it official) since Monday I think it was. I've been dating this girl for maybe a month or so, but it's not the same as her being your girlfriend, it turns out. I'm not sure why.

We did, however, skip the "meeting" phase. I've heard people talk about how they're meeting someone, so of course I ask when and where and all the juicy gossip stuff, and it turns out meeting is a relationship status here now. From what I can understand, this thing is a little more serious than just hanging out, but not as serious as going on a date. I didn't know it was needed, but hey, the average relationship of a 15 year old has now increased to 4 days here so it must be working.

But yes, Ryan has a girlfriend! She's a lovely girl. She's smart, funny, quiet and not a slut. I have not seen her naked yet, and it is killing me. I don't consider myself a bad person because of that but a girl has never made me wait this long for sex. And in a way, I like being made to wait. I've gotten to know this girl better than I've known most of my exes in half the time. I would have done it before now but the girls of my past have always been all for diving in to bed. The sluts.

Gemma is staying the night at my house tonight, and she sent me a text saying that she had her cute PJs chosen out ready and special. This could go two ways. They could be a nice little shirt and tiny, tiny shorts. Or they could be this huge matching stripey long sleeve shirt and pants thing. Either way, I'm betting she looks hella cute in them.

I am left with a conundrum, of course. Normally, I share my bedroom with my younger brother. This week however my parents and younger brother are on vacation, so there's two beds spare in my room. One for me, one for her. Of course, she may be okay with us sharing a bed. It'd be a squeeze, but hey, that just means more cuddles, right? But, if she doesn't want us sharing a bed, do I offer her my bed? Do I offer her the brother's bed? If she is okay with us sharing a bed, how the hell do I keep what I'm going to call... My attraction to her, under wraps?

In more general terms, she makes me nervous. I've always been quite insecure about girls, and this is made worse by the fact that Gemma is cute, she has a great body, and she is a catch in every sense of it. She has a best friend, who just to add to my insecurity, is a guy. This guy lives like, down the road to her. How can I compete with that?! I know how guys work. We always have crushes on friends. I don't doubt this guy would do disgusting and potentially illegal things to my girlfriend. That said, it's not that bad now that me and Gemma are in a relationship on Facebook, because he Liked it.I have his approval. It is against the man code for him to move in on my woman. Unless, of course, I break Gemma's heart and she is vulnerable when, while it makes him a bad person, she does become fair game.

Well, that's my post. Now, I'm going to go clean every inch of the house I can reach in preparation for Gemma getting here.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

Summer Playlist - 2022 Edition!

 It's truly the little things in life that make a world of difference. And for me, that means my summer playlist! Behold, I have put together 2022's edition. It includes cuts from artists like: - Mitski - Uffie - Johnny Orlando - Kylie Minogue + Jessie Ware - Florence and the Machine (who put out a fantastic album this year after a long dry spell of kind of "meh" records. Her pairing with Jack Antonoff worked out quite well!)  - Bilal - Harry Styles (he has some catchy music!)  - KATE BUSH DUH - And of course, Lana. It's also available on Apple Music, but since I recognize a lot of folks use Spotify, here's that link. Enjoy!
