Happy 13th, Guyster
“What do you want to do Friday night?’

“I dunno.” His shoulders climbed to his ears in an exaggerated shrug.

“Baja?” I mentioned the Mexican restaurant in the Marina where we went on our first official date in '92, the same place where we've celebrated our anniversary every year, except for the sixth one, the year we were separated and riled up. That celebration was at El Cholo in Santa Monica, and after a half-eaten meal, we went outside to argue and smoke. Billy threw his gift at me. I barely caught the box of candy before it bounced off my chest to the ground. There was no anniversary kiss that night.

“Sure.” He wasn’t paying any attention. He stood in front of his DJ rack, mixing on his DCD Pro 400, and his headphones covered one ear.

“Well, it’s our thirteenth, you know.”

“I kno-o-o-w.” Auto-response. I felt the temper trigger twitching. Why should I care more about this than he does?

“This is going to be our last anniversary in this house, you know.” I sighed an angry sigh, willing him to actually turn around to look at me.

“I kno-o-o-w.”

“Shit, Billy! If you don’t fucking care…” I didn’t bother completing the sentence.

“Hey! My mishap is the fact that I'm destined to snap.” He’d been randomly repeating this phrase for weeks, ever since he rediscovered TLC’s CrazySexyCool.

“You’re really pissing me off.”

“God, what are you getting mad at? Stop being a meanie.”

“You’re not paying attention.”

“I’m mixing!”

“And I’m talking! Shit!” I walked out, stomped down the stairs, and sat at our kitchen table paging through the new Entertainment Weekly. After a few minutes, I slunk back upstairs.

Billy glanced at me when I walked back into the room. “I’m still mixing.” His eyebrows went up into an arrow that pointed toward heaven, and he smiled.

“So, Baja?”

“Sure, dummy guy. Whatever.” He went back to the mix board, his butt and feet moving in a perfect unheard rhythm, lost in his music, lost in the magic he heard every time he slipped on his headphones, lost forever in the brightest light, the light that has all of the colors I just can’t seem to see.

Montreal

Beautiful.

It's such a loving, natural, real, true thing you're still arguing and getting riled up.

I hope you get a fantastic sealed envelope this weekend.

GI JOE t-shirt, huh? Billy and I would have gotten along just fine.
guysterrules From: guysterrules Date: November 26th, 2005 05:57 am (UTC) (Link)
Yeah. All you two would've talked about was Madonna.

Aw.

That's a great pic of you and Billy, Terry. I like his hair buzzed down like that. Did he do that often?

And what T-shirt were YOU wearing? *g* (The collar bands look suspiciously similar!)

He was so cute with his hair buzzed. It showed off his heart-shaped scar at the nape of his neck, and his salt was crepping up on his pepper.

Billy bought us matching GI Joe t-shirts for a big party we went to in Montreal. He liked when we wore matching stuff. He said it made him feel "marked."

For what it's worth, I have been to Baja a bunch of times. I guess that's not worth much, but it's true.

I love Baja, and haven't been in four years. I like the small Mexican woman patting out tortillas when you walk in the place.

I like this picture.

Bruce Springsteen started playing while I was in the middle of reading this post.
guysterrules From: guysterrules Date: November 26th, 2005 06:00 am (UTC) (Link)
Bruce or Madonna were the perfect soundtracks for Billy and me.

Thanks, Shawn.

You make me blush, but he would've blushed even more. He had no clue how cute he was.

That's a very sweet picture of the two of you.

Thank you, tl.

He was the handsome one. I was just along for the ride.

Thank you, and I hope you had a terrific Thanksgiving.

You both were the handsome two. And you still are.

Come to San Diego? I know it'd be awkward and all, but it is going to be so much fun.

You mean for the wedding?
notoriousbrb From: notoriousbrb Date: November 26th, 2005 06:44 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yes, honey, I mean for the wedding. We will be arriving at Hotel Del Coronado on the 2nd and leaving on the 6th. There won't be a ton of people there, but it promises to be a beautiful time. I am geographically challenged, so I don't know how far it is for you. Ned's brother is coming from Sacremento with his boyfriend, and I know it's a bit of a drive for them. Even if you felt strange about being at a wedding of people you don't know, maybe you would do me the honor of at least letting me hug you in person on one day of our stay.

Aw. I'm tearing up.

Thank you for sharing that.

In the picture, he looks cute and you look content.
As for the words; Memories are the warm fuzzies of the mind.

I hear the whole thing in my head....I miss his voice...and yours too! I hope you had a WONDERFUL Turkey Day - I miss you to pieces! And Billy too.....you are the world's best couple...always have been, always will be
guysterrules From: guysterrules Date: November 26th, 2005 06:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, we did it pretty good, didn't we?
savoresgirl From: savoresgirl Date: November 26th, 2005 03:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
Just one more thing - if you both had the GI Joe shirts - who had the Kung Fu grip?? *wink wink*
guysterrules From: guysterrules Date: November 26th, 2005 06:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
And I hope you had a super great Thanksgiving, too! I meant to say that in the last comment where it would've been more appropriate.

And both of us had a pretty good grip on things.

I love the things like this that give me the tiniest lens into yr life with Billy. Not that I don't love the bigger things, too.

P.S. A/S/L?!?
