So very nice to have the day off work, so naturally I get up early anyhow. Not as early as I normally would get up, but pretty early nevertheless.

So, Julia arrived this last Wednesday, and how things have progressed so well thusfar! I thought it was a nice sign that the day she arrived, the new issue of Martha Stewart Weddings also arrived. Yesterday was the fast of the 17th of Tammuz - I almost did the whole thing well, with the exception of a few malt balls and crackers at work. A rabbi from the synagogue where I pray, when I called, said it was okay since I really wasn't feeling well.

Then, last night, we broke the fast in my apartment (newly organized by my friend Yitzchak) - we being myself, my roommate Stanley, Yitzchak, Julia, and her mother Kate. A lovely meal we had. I tried out the phrase that Julia's 'surrogate sister' had e-mailed me, which came from Julia's mother for usage of when I would be wanting to get the ring (for later use of course). Before I walked them to their hotel, Kate managed to deliver the goods, so to speak - a stuffed kangaroo with a jewelry box in its pouch. A lovely ring it is, indeed.

Today I'm going to be spending the day with Julia. So many wonderfully fun things to do - a Japanese bookstore to go to, the Sanrio store, a few other things.... and cooking for tonight, of course. That ought to be loads of fun - Julia and I both love to cook. Well, it's about time, isn't it? A few too many cooking haters in my life. So very 'sophisticated' and 'modern' to dislike cooking, isn't it? Rubbish.

i've been out of town a few days, so forgive this delayed reaction

this is probably an inappropriate question, but....

as someone who has been in alot of long distance relationships, i've been reading your journal with interest lately, as it SOUNDED like you were talking about meeting a long distance sweetheart for the first time

but this entry confused me

so, my inappropriate question. is this a long distance romance? or is it an arranged marriage? or something else?

a little of both

well we 'met' through a web site for single orthodox jews... and had a sort of long distance thing until now. now it's not long distance, but she's going back at the end of july, but i'm proposing the day before she leaves. :)
