9 Years After NetRunner Night


It has been 9 years since the first NetRunner Night, the little anniversary of the first time Tobie and I "officially" met. It was also the first time we had played a tabletop game together, in this case the original NetRunner C.C.G.

It's a funny coincidence that this special day is just two days before Valentine's Day, the traditional day for celebrating love. But in all honesty, NetRunner night will always be more important and more romantic to us than February 14.

We could have celebrated this evening with a fancy date somewhere or by catching a movie or any other traditional celebration. But in truth the most appropriate way to celebrate NetRunner Night is stay home and order Shakey's Pizza Bianca, as it was the pizza we had ordered during that first time we hung out together.

It's just a bonus that Shakey's have shaped all large and party size pizzas as hearts for the month of February.

I love you Tobie. The Run continues.

Little Reminders of Love


While enjoying some ice cream after a light sushi dinner, Tobie and I had one of those quirky moments of thinking of the same thing at the same time. Just as I was going to mention it, he was already expressing the same thought it in his own words and that just got me laughing.

We've always had these moments since we started chatting with one another online and the fact that this still happens just reassures me that we're still perfectly right for one another.

I love you Tobie. Don't ever change.

Eating Alone


I hate eating alone.

I've come to accept meals to be a very social activity even though Tobie and I tend to eat in silence when we're together. But I feel at peace when we're at the same table whether we're at home at the Sietch or at a nice restaurant. But of course we can't be together for every meal and work requirements can have us in different places.

Going home I thought it might be fun to eat out since it was just me - a way to make it more amusing or something. I initially thought of getting food at Mercato since it's not too far off my route home and then I considered going to Jollibee since I have free meals to claim thanks to my credit card. But the thought of eating out alone without Tobie just bogged me down and so I went home and reheated leftovers together with some Quorn nuggets to change things up a bit. When stuff like this happens I typically eat something light to stave my usual dinner hunger and then eat again later on once Tobie gets home. I don't have that option today since I need to get some sleep so just made the most of things for now.

This is just one of the many things that define our daily lives as a couple. It's just one of the little reminders that our lives are so deeply intertwined with one another's the slightest change in routine makes everything feel somehow wrong and out of sorts. But even the momentary bits of absence are more than balanced out by the elation you feel  once you're back in the same space again.

The Best Gift Every Year

With my birthday just around the corner, I remain thankful for the best "gift" to enter my life 8 years ago. No amount of Transformers, books or LEGO Dimensions figures comes anywhere close to all that Tobie has given to me in terms of love, support, and sheer time each and every day of our lives together.

So more than thinking about turning another year older, I'd like to take a moment to be thankful that Tobie is the man I may likely be in love with for the rest of my life.
