I'll come up with something in a minute.

Still out there

Do you ever get the feeling that the Pillar of Cheese in the Shape of Jane Austen is still out there somewhere?

That pillar of cheese has got the Space Nazis back under control, they’re sharpening their knives again. Bringing the zombies back, turning this whole story upside down again? Oh yes friends and neighbors, the Pillar of Cheese in the Shape of Jane Austen is still out there, still waiting, consolidating its evil.

We’re gonna hafta stay frosty, you and I, oh dear and constant reader.

Polyamory Q&A: Question 9 (b)

When I answered this the first time, I didn’t quite get what they were asking, or whatever. So, let’s answer it again.

When you’re in a relationship with two or more other people, how do you ensure you make time for the people you’re not sleeping with?

There are two ways to answer this. One, I can tell you about how most the people I want to hang out with are either Not Local* and I know them through the internet or have moved away to Not Local Land and I keep up with them as best I can. However, that’s sort of a weak answer and leaves people wondering why I don’t just make friends in the local area which is like asking a depressive why they don’t just cheer the fuck up or asking a man on a desert island why he doesn’t just eat the sand.

Let’s suppose people live local again, I deal with those people like anyone else I suppose. Remember, one of my central tenets for success is treating every relationship like its special and only separating friend from lover by remembering who I’m supposed to kiss on the mouth. As a result, I try to touch base with everyone on a regular basis, listen when they have problems and so on. It might take a little more energy, but the last time I had enough people local that I talked to, I managed. Of course, I could call people on the phone now that cell plans have made long distance charges more or less a thing of the past, but I don’t really like talking on the phone that much. Also, I don’t like bothering people.

Besides, I’ll be honest, people also have my number. That ended up causing problems for a while there, when I was about the only person calling anyone, suggesting things to do, making sure people got out behind their computers and did anything. So, yeah, that caused some issues as well.

Simple answer, effort. Not simple answer, there’s way more to that than we can cover in a short post like this.

*Not local means more than 20 minutes away by car. Considering how fast I drive, that’s some distance.
