I went home for about a week and a half. I had a bunch of things to do and a lot of people I wanted to see. I was too jet lagged to actually do it but got to see a few cool people and get the most important things done — IRS Taxes from when I left and Fingerprints done and sent to FBI so I can apply for new jobs again.
Saw a couple of old friends I used to work with.
I guess I lost a good bit of weight and inches here.
My own mother didn’t recognize me when I got off the plane to meet her.
Went to see my Grandmother and turns out Ankh lives in the same state. At first I thought she was the same city but I was wrong and it turned out she was 4 hours away.
Convinced my mother to go (my car anyway) which was easy since she was meeting someone up there too.
Ankh and I had been text messaging back and forth and we finally met up at a coffee shop. She had to go to work so we only got to chat and not do the shopping we had wanted. Maybe next time.
I had an image of Ankh as I was going to see her and I think it was my jet lagged brain combined with overactive imaginings that I was thinking she was some type of imposing figure that was intimidating.
Ankh came into the shop and I relaxed.
She’s awesome. First thing she mentioned was my eyes, which I never noticed that fact about them. I don’t know why she implied she much older than me when it is only 3 months. Oddly, since I got back I have been mistaken for someone who is 19-22 and/or being in college. Funny thing is that this person thought my Mom and I were college students working on a paper while I was waiting.
Meeting Ankh was fun and next time I come to the states we should go shopping.
Oh yeah, she also fussed at me for not knowing off the bat who the cute guy was in my phone. I even had his number. Actually, I have another number, I recently found and I have no idea who it is. And the look on her face when I told her of another person I have sort of known for 6 years and they know me. Kinda ticked at me at the moment but he will get over it.
