Saturday night I walked to the new home of a couple of friends for their housewarming (missing one turn that cost me a couple of minutes). While there I got to spend a little while interacting with someone I've been friends with on-line for a few years, as well as limited interaction with others besides the friends I went to see. Once most of the attendees had left there was some limited conversation between the hosts and myself, where I talked about a couple of things I likely wouldn't have a few months ago. Fairly soon after I arrived the nerves I feel in such situations were pretty much gone, still not wanting to eat but I did snack for the rest of the evening.
With another friend I hadn't seen in person for a couple of years moving back to the city recently and the housewarming being sort of half way there I had asked earlier in the week if she wanted company on the Sunday. I ended up spending the night on the couch and apart from waking due to cat standing on my chest slept quite well considering. I waited around a while after waking properly to make sure I could say goodbye to both of the couple, and learnt a bit more about D&D stuff as everyone else was discussing the game. My walk to the other house ended up being nowhere near as direct as it should have been due to me missing a turn and not being familiar with the area, about 25 minutes more walking than I had intended. Thankfully the rain that had been forecast didn't eventuate although it was colder than I'd have preferred.
Once I got there however the two of us quickly settled back to the comfortable hugging and general closeness that was normal when we saw each other often. I got to meet her cat Luna, and we were both surprised with Luna eventually allowing me to stroke her head while she sat off to my side. I also got to see some "old" TV due to her flat having netflix(?), including a few episodes of Buffy, that I really should get around to watching again after not really seeing it for a decade (besides the four(?) episodes I watched with my most recent ex). I also had conversations with her that I'd likely not have had months ago, especially back when we were seeing a lot of each other. I don't know when we'll arrange to spend more time together, distance is enough that I'm not wanting to walk that far often, and she's still getting used to the new place. I have however arranged to take over a video game that she hadn't been aware of and am now thinking I might find a couple of books as well.
