So lovely. My dad is so weak but he heaved himself out of bed to shake my David's hand and thank him for being OK with me coming to stay and look after him. He said "You're a good lad. Thank you." This translates as "I love you." Dave knew this.

But when I kissed him goodnight and got into the elevator at my apartment building, I saw in the mirror that I had noodles in my hair and sauce down my front and thought "OMG! How long was that there! Did he notice? Fuck!" Now I know he did. XD

I didn't want to be indebted to him in case the date didn't go well and I didn't want to see him again. He accepted this instantly which I respected. But it did go well & I did want to see him again.

I recall that date too. We'd met at a nightclub the weekend before & I'd given him my number. He called and invited me to a meal on Valentine's Day. Then he encouraged me to order expensive food and wine coz he thought he'd be paying for it but I insisted on going halves.

I have now spilled Chinese food all down my front which has caused the husband to recall that this is what I did on our first date in February 2001 and claim this is when he knew he loved me.

Having an anniversary date with the husband. It's a nice break. My dad asked me what time I'll be home and warned me not to drink too much. I think it was habit. First time I liked it.

It's two days until it comes out. He's insane. Mute him. I have blocked because I never want to have to engage with him again, even indirectly.

It's infuriating to be accused of having some stake in denying James to have written something which he can confirm or not when I am not actually interested in the debate at all but just assumed the guy was thinking of someone else coz I know what James has written this year.

Not about saving face. My face is not endangered no matter whether he did or not. The other person seems to think I have some motive for denying it but I just assumed he was thinking of a different James and had made a mistake. It doesn't make any difference to me.

I knew James hadn't written anything about AI since I have been reading all his stuff but it just wasn't important enough to argue about. I'm not invested in that debate and don't have the knowledge to evaluate it.

That's additional, not alternate.

Hmph. OK. I think I have probably had enough Twitter for one day.
