you've so taught me something. nice one.

I've taken out a personals ad.

"Why now?" I hear you ask.

two reasons, really- the first one was sparked by a comment from my boss the other day: "kiddo, you really need to stop hitting on the scientists that come through here."

Me: "But... I'm not. I am just the way I am. It's not my fault that they're Australian leperchans."

And I'm not hitting on them... really. But the scientists are much more fun than legal docs. so, I figure I should find another outlet for my natural "friendliness".

second reason- the mustard is in bloom. the pines are giving me headaches and I could use a really good...

hey, lookie! a diversion! cool!

anyway. I never thought my three years on the board would amount to much other than esoteric social skills honed through typing into a small little box and pissing people off halfway around the world (or making them titter. or have no reaction at all.) But now I standing on the edge of a whole world of possibilities, 99.9% won't amount to more than a pleasurable, ego-stroking three seconds. But there is always that 0.01% of a single solitary cup of coffee with someone interesting.

and for that, I thank you.

Have someone that knows you very well pick someone for you from iMatch...the first one I picked for my sister married her.

I'd think it would be unsafe interviewing on your own, and from an emotional standpoint, your level of picking people on your own is a bit lower than if someone who knew it did it. Insecure stuff that we all do...
I just LOVE what you haven't done with the place!

interesting viewpoint aud. I'll keep it in mind when I'm on that track- others are much better at picking out clothes for me, so I can see the correlation. but I don't plan on having the poor boy stuffed and framed at this time - I'm more on the catch and release program.

day three in the chemistry lab: lab notes- good reactions, but pretty generic. Only one response to the Danny Kaye reference. Interestingly, no one's asked about "incredible luck at 30-100 ft depth of water". No reaction to the signals I've sent out to some promising subjects.

why now, zip? because... well, frankly- it's all part of a plan. Somewhere, I know I'm currently on moving in a general direction that I don't want to be. the I know the only way I pop out of the world that I am in into a world that I want to be in is to create a synergy of conditions also known as "being fed up".

I'm on the whispering verge of that, but I could use a happy local diversion that involves eating dinner and watching movie with a cutie.

Because I'm not exactly ready to pop out yet- I need about six more months. Maybe nine. Just enough time to be in a relationship, which I really kinda suck at.

eta: ooh, ooh! hey,fox! Are there Australian leperchans? If not, I think we may have a really rare specimen here.

You could just pop *up* about 50 miles... I bet you'd find some good specimens up here...

Dude - when are we doing the magic show/dinner thing? Someone wants to meet you... (not a specimen tho'... )
