And There’s Nothing That I Wouldn’t Do To Be In Your Arms

Before I open my eyes in the morning, I am thinking about you.

When I’m getting dressed for work and receive your first text of the day, I smile.

When I am driving to work and we talk on the phone or text some more, I get excited.

When I get to work and plug away, behind the computer, I think about you and I become incredibly happy.

When I’m driving home in traffic, cursing the car in front of me for driving too slow, it just doesn’t bother me. Once I get home, once the dogs are walked, once I’ve made it to the gym, once I’ve showered and changed, I will see you. I am going to be in your arms. Safe and loved.

We might go out to eat. We might go to the mall. We might watch Entourage or Lucky Louie. We might wrestle because, how dare you eat ice cream in front of me when you know I’m doing my best to lose the “last 10 pounds” that you claim you can’t see and don’t care about. We might go to open houses and imagine ourselves living there. We might just stare at each other. What we do doesn’t matter. What matters, is that I am with you. Touching you. Next to you. In front of you. With your arms around me. And there is no where else in the world I want to be.

    I thought after Kathryn’s post we agreed we would keep this thing between you and me. Now you’re going to go and share this with the rest of the world.

    I mean the last post was about my loving making abilities and now this??

    Please don’t mention how you throw a little rouge and make me tuck my sac back


  2. Virgle kent

    *Throw a litte rouge on ME*

  3. Rachel

    Wow… The first blush of love is always the best isn’t it? You almost feel invincible.

  4. Living in Dupont

    Glad to see things looking so up Velvet! (and to see you wrote again, of course).

  5. marie

    wha? who? when?

    i’m not sure what’s going on, but i’m very happy to see you’re enjoying yourself (and a man).. 🙂

  6. KassyK

    I cannot wait for our catch up dinner…that was lovely and I am so happy for you. 🙂

  7. scarlet

    Did I miss the update on this? I know I’ve been busy, but sheesh!;)

    Love the happy posts.

  8. Velvet

    VK – I’m speechless. And for your follow up correction, I still don’t get it.

    Rachel – Yes. It is nice…

    Living in Dupont – Trying to manage the incredible highs with the lows. Everything does seem to be looking up – temporarily.

    Marie – Trying a new format for a bit. Instead of disappearing and not writing at all, I’m doing snippets. Unfortunately, the tell-all details of my love life backfired, and I learned it’s just not a good way to go. I don’t know who is reading this anymore but for a couple dozen of you. We need to have drinks. Then I’ll fill you in.

    KK – Thanks. Dinner!! Dinner!!! Must eat!

    Scarlet – Nah. You didn’t miss anything. I posted a few general things while I worked some stuff out with my life, this being one of those things.

  9. Drunken Chud

    is it a woman? it’s a woman isn’t it? I KNEW IT! you’ve gone lezzy. that’s so hot.

  10. Ms Annie D

    You’re feeling safe and loved?

    I’m all for it — and happy for you.

  11. La Whisky

    LOVE the bettypageesque harley photo, and glad things are going well.

  12. cosmic shambles

    Does this one know about your blog?

  13. cosmic shambles

    Your heading should read: “If you won’t make love to me on a Harley, I can’t date you”.

  14. Wicked H


    Happy dance.

    For the love of the Harley, please don’t stop the research.

  15. Velvet

    Chud – It’s not a woman. Eau!

    Annie D – It won’t replace my love of porn though…

    La Whisky – I thought you would like that. It’s quite retro, isn’t it?

    Cosmic – Okay. I changed it. But “make love to?” Huh? What century are you from, and you know my fondness of the F-word. But I compromised a little. I don’t want to be not safe for work for, well, any more than I already am.

    Wicked H – I shall put that Harley to gooooood use. I promise.

  16. cosmic shambles

    What the hell was I thinking? My head is so twisted right now I am mixing up that whole love-sex thing. My bad!

  17. Sex & Moxie

    I’m with you. Just started seeing someone a few weeks ago and all is going well. Better than “well.” The little things don’t seem to bother me as much. Funny how that happens, isn’t it?

  18. Hotboxes Boyfriend

    Yuck, you’re making us sick. Guess you won’t be moving back down to the ATL anytime soon now. Whoops gotta go getting yelled at……..

    P.S. We are happy to hear that you are happy!!!

  19. chicgirl

    I am happy for you!

  20. Dan

    Woot, Velvet’s back, in love, and apparently very bendy – which is always good news.

    Congrats, Vel – so very happy for you!

  21. Rosie

    I have to stop reading you for a while. I’m really happy for you but you’re opening a lot of wounds which aren’t properly healed yet. Good luck Velvet, I’m very jealous 🙂

  22. Drunken Chud

    if you loved me, it’d be a woman.

  23. Velvet

    Cosmic – Yes, we need to slap you around before you get back in the dating game. I’m afraid with the dating shirt and that “make love” attitude, you are really headed for a pile of shit.

    Sex & Moxie – Well, hello! You’re like a famous blogger and such, I’m flattered you stopped by. This was a much mushier post than my normal snark and sarcasm though.

    Hotbox’s BF – I just got the email about the dogs running away. Do they need Velvet and Thora and Sammy to come back and visit? Moving back to ATL isn’t out of the question.

    Chicgirl – Thanks!

    Dan – It’s tough to stay this bendy. Stretching is a necessity.

    Rosie – I’ll still be all over the place with postings, so don’t worry. It won’t all be gushing and mushy crap. Even that makes me ill after 10 minutes. Are you ok?

    Chud – No. If I loved you, I’d be with you. Which isn’t a bad idea…

  24. Needtsza

    Wow. and she writes poetry too!

    Love the pic / title thing at the top too. funny shit.

    Well, you definately have something to write about again. Quick ain’t ya? 😉

    Good for you, girlie!

  25. Needtsza

    and is mushy so bad? I think it’s refreshing to see somebody post about ‘love’ rather ‘Here’s why I’m so unhappy in the dating scene’. You saved me a long post about that, so thanks. ha ha.

    and that first kiss. that first touch. that first warming of the heart. god damn, that’s nice.

    good for you. again, just good for you

  26. I-66


    She said ‘gushing’

  27. Marci


  28. Barbara

    Sounds too good to be true! Can it last? Enjoy every minute. Been to the Post Office yet?

  29. Casanova

    someone’s in love like a muhhfucka…

  30. Velvet

    Needtsza – Thanks on the pic. I was looking for something appropriate and retro. And well, there you go.

    I66 – Silly silly.

    Marci – Flights leave for Chi-Town EVERY day. Whatcha waiting for?

    Barbara – Oh, don’t jinx me! I don’t think it’s too good to be true, and I do hope it lasts. And yes, I went to the Post Office Wednesday, AND sent it priority so you should have it tomorrow. I know you can’t wait, but seriously? I CAN’T WAIT EITHER!

    Casanova – Sigh. It’s good.

  31. Sex & Moxie

    Mushy is good. I think sometimes we’re too afraid to be mushie. Public mushiness? Not so good. Enjoy the ride, baby. Never be afraid to show someone how you feel. I found this post inspiring. Adding you to blogroll, pronto.

  32. freckledk

    I’ve been a little MIA, but I’m still checking in…and LOVING what I’m reading. Good on ya, Kiddo. I’m tickled pink that everything is coming up roses for you.

    And, as soon as this bitch of a busy time I’m having eases up, let’s do drinks.

    Love the Varga chickadee, BTW.

  33. bejeweled

    Ah new love…. what that must feel like. Keep posting it, maybe it’ll rub off.

  34. Old Lady

    Just a hunkahunka burnin love!

  35. QueenofPreen

    Yes!!!! This entry made me smile. Velvet I am so happy for you. 🙂 Your new love sounds amazing.

  36. Penny

    Awwww! here’s hoping to see more and more happy posts like this from ya!

  37. Stef

    Yay, this is fun to see! I just watched that Bettie Page movie last night (it was okay, but could’ve been much edgier), I’m all about the pinups. Love the new look!
