I love the "Lips" alias for your new gf. Reminds me of a 30s gangster movie. I'm imagining Edward G. Robinson: "So, I told Mugsy, see... go downtown and pay a visit to Lips McGee. She'll set you straight, boy, and give you a night you'll never forget, I said. And did she ever!"
The world opens up... when you do.
Oh, oh, can't you see? Love is the drug for me. ~Bryan Ferry
"Love is that condition in which another person's happiness is essential to your own." ~Robert Heinlein
