I'm gonna let you in on a little secret -- Nikki Finke and I have been dating for the last 14 months. Normally our relationship is great. She's a wonderful person, with a warm, generous heart (and surprisingly good at Wheel of Fortune). Sure we have our rough patches, but so does every relationship. However, after seeing the outburst on her site yesterday, I thought I owed everyone an explanation.
Nikki and I are having a bit of a lovers' quarrel right now. Anger displacement is a funny thing and I'm sorry it spilled out onto the Internet. The truth is she peeved I'm going on a "Guy's Trip" to Vegas this weekend and she wanted to go to the Calabasas Pumpkin Festival. But what was I gonna do? We got comped at the Mandalay Bay where my friend is a high roller. If you were me, you'd do the same thing. Vegas or wading through mud for pumpkins? It's a no brainer.
Well, we talked about it last night, and Nikki and I are gonna look into couples counseling. But between my limited health insurance and her low-grade agoraphobia, the options are limited. If anyone happens to know a therapist who does house calls for cheap, let me know. I'm sorry to that you had to witness this. Please forgive us both.
Or this could be about the time I took her to a Foo Fighters show and had them play this song for her.
