    Do other guys hate you?

    I ask because my boyfriend has a strong hate on for Damien Rice and Ross from Friends since, by comparison he looks like an emotionally paralyzed ogre who can really only express feelings of “hungry” or “rugby.”

    I feel like if I showed him your blog, he would be similarly irritated.

    Anyway, blah, blah, blah, I feel like I’m running out of ways to say i seriously adore your posts. This one is certainly another gem.

      Haha. Well, thanks. I appreciate that.

      Would it help if you told him that I’ve wanted to punch Damien Rice in the face for years? (I have my reasons.)

      And would it also help to tell him that I wrote most of this post in my head while watching hockey highlights and rocking half a beard?

    If I moved to Canada would you marry me? :)

  4. Sigh. Where IS this guy?

    (And she does wear make-up, she’s just very good at it.)

  5. Well, I was going to propose to you here in the comments, but it looks like someone else already did that up there. So… no go.

    Sorry man.

    The tie rolling is my favorite part.

    I make no claims to be normal.

      It probably comes as no surprise that every single male character I ever write is (a version of) me, and that is exactly what I’d be doing in that moment.

      As well as pretending my tie is like a puppet snake of some sort. But that seemed to lack a certain poetry.

  7. So, is it or is it not too late to propose? Because if not…. will you marry me?

    MN is close to Canada.

    electric silk huh?

    Ive been tasered before. Im not sure that electric silk sounds like a good idea.

  9. This was stunning. STUNNING!!!

    I swear I smile huge whenever I read your writing. You should write a book, or something. :)

    Also, purple is my favourite colour.

    I love that new falling in love feeling where everything they do is amazing. It’s so wonderful to read that feeling in your writing to remind me what it was like.

    OMG OMG OMG! You’re alive! This whole time I thought you had packed up your baseball caps and left! I went overseas for a while and when I came back, the link to your site wasn’t working. I was reading Steph’s blog the other day and saw your comment. I am ecstatically happy to have found your writing again.

    This post is fabulous, as always. I guess the good thing about not having read you in so long is that I now have a backlog of writing to read! Yay!

    THIS –

    “He also knew that sigh she let out when she was ready for the night to be over. When she was ready to stop being “on.” When she just wanted to shut down and have him nakedspoon her while they watched some movie that he was so excited about and which he was shocked that she had somehow never seen.”

    Yes, that.

    Goddamnit Peter. Stop being such a good effing writer for once will you?????? You´re making the rest of us look bad.

    You know I love your writing, and this was well….utter fabulousness.

  14. Ben says:

    Heavy (awesome) sigh.

    Pete, are you still single? If so, what in the fuck is wrong with women over there??

    I love when her dress floated up a little bit. You could feel the breeze from her spin with that line.
