Where The Hell Have I Been?

No, I don't really have any good excuses. I had a delightful time meeting two new blogger folk in the Real World, and finally got a mailing address for VW, so she can report on her prize soon enough. I guess more than anything else, I'm waiting for some inspiration. I'm kind of distracted by a few things of late that aren't so appealing, and show every promise of getting worse (work related, and no- I'm not the subject of the concern). But my buddy Andy and his better half M are Seattle bound in less than two weeks, and I am really happy about that. I remain optimistic that they'll see the area in a favorable light so that I can continue my relentless badgering of them regarding moving nearer.

I was thinking about writing up some thoughts I've had lately based upon observations of single people my age (as in never married or otherwise committed) but I expect that this would only serve as a character assassination as there is little wisdom to share and plenty of things that'd be hurtful. Yeah, sometimes I censor myself.

Last weekend we went to some swanky retreat kind of place called Sun Mountain Lodge and the pictures are up (along with some other more current crap) here. I don't understand the appeal of these chi chi places, let alone the prices they charge, but Schmoopie had a nice time and discovered a new love- snowshoeing. I'd've gone skating if the frozen pond was greater than 15' across.

As I write this and it's coming up on midnight (PST), I'm still debating the idea of getting up earlier than my nature would dictate to play with Irrelephant on his talking blog party line deal. I think he's selected Sunday mornings as an act of savage cruelty, or to discourage my attendance. I can't figure out which, but c'est la vie.

And finally there is this:

Welcome back.

FYI - Rolls-Royce/Snecma Olympus 593 (Concorde)

Loved the snaps, would like to see more.

I couldn't get that "22" to load for some reason.

I took the quiz, and then before it would give me the results, it wanted me to sign up for a dating service. Fuck that!

But i bet i could have taken a bunch of the little brats.

Subtract 20 from that number and I could be the Champ!

Ah, if only I'd noticed the warning sooner! *lol* I'm glad you managed to get your heart beating in time to join us (two minutes BEFORE the broadcast, no less!) and spend the next hour AFTER the broadcast chatting with VW and Pants and I.

Steak for dinner sometime soon...boffo!

Yea, how do I get past the stoopid dating site?

Aw hell, I already know the truth -- my two 5-year-olds kick my ass daily.

I don't know what may be different, but when I load the 5 year old quiz I can click "click here to begin"...

My score didn't show up at the end but an online dating site appeared. I didn't want to score a date so I didn't get my test score. I'm a loser all round.

the dating site was Stucco's plan all along -- it's why he mentioned "single people his age" in the post; he's trying to get them hooked up!
