Well Hello Again!

Hi to all and sundry,

This is the update on the not-date, because I didn't really feel like editing my earlier post.  It's too much work.

His name is hard to pronounce, and he has a rather strong accent, but after two hours, it was like he was speaking perfect 'Meruhkin.  We had TONS in common, and even though there would be some times where conversation would just stop suddenly, we'd start back up again like it hadn't.  It was really nice.

Also the food was delicious and I had tons of soda so I should be up for at least a little while, Haha.

He's just a guy who wants a friend, and I think that's quite alright with me.

Maybe this dating website thing isn't as bad as I have found it to be so far.

Until Next Time, Dear Reader

Here's Your Horoscope For Today

Does anyone but me know that particular Weird Al song?


Didn't think so.

Anyway, not important.  I merely had a minor incident regarding my evening plans an my horoscope, but I've decided it wasn't as crazy as I thought it was...Maybe. day has been fairly good.  I woke up at the crack of dawn on a saturday to go earn monies, and I got out at noon.  I brought Bojangles home for the family, and we enjoyed it thoroughly.  And then I made dinner plans with a guy off of a dating site.

Yeah...I know, that last bit isn't as normal as I was planning on today being.

Have I mentioned I didn't (and still don't) get out much?  Yeah...that's what I'm doing tonight though, getting out I mean.  I'm going to a local Italian place (more pizza than "Italian" per se, but whatever) to meet this guy I met online.  So yeah...

Uh...right. So...yep.  Uh-huh.

Ok, so I'm going to go now, because that was pretty much it for right now.  I may or may not update you on the aftermath of the not-date later.  We'll see how long I last as far as staying awake goes.  Waking up at 5 in the morning almost every morning is tough when you're not used to it.

Until Next Time, Dear Reader

Quick question

How bad d'you think it is that I don't really feel like adding the bishop who confirmed me, and has been the only bishop I've ever known in my life ever, as a friend on facebook?

In other news, I've found Sherlock fanfic and my life has been made infinitely better for it.

Good day, dear readers
Until Next Time,

It HAS been a while, hasn't it?

To all those who are fathers or who have fathers, I wish you all a happy Father's Day!

Now to business.

I have been a member of an online dating site for a few weeks now, and I have been chatting with this young man, DS, not to be confused with DM, because right now DS has no alternate name.  He seems alright, and he waited out a number of weeks before I would give him my number to text, unlike several other guys on this particular site (or any other, I imagine).

So we exchange numbers, and I am to be the one to text first.  So I enter his number into my phone, set him to a contact so I will know with whom I am talking and send him a straightforward text telling him whom I am and from where I know him.

And I'm texted back from someone who apparently loves Gavin and is quite obviously not who I wish to be talking to.  So I apologize, and alert them to the fact that this is problematic.  I go back to the message where DS sent me his number, and I notice there was a bit of a user error in my contacts.  I have mistyped the number.  So I quickly change it and text the correct number this time.

And the wrong number keeps texting me.  They asked what I meant and how old I was.  I merely told them there was a user error and did not address the age question as I do not wish to be predatorized...preyed on...something like that.

And they continued to text me!  They are quite obviously not old enough to be texting anyone, since they have no idea what the word "problematic" means, and they continued to ask how old I was without first telling me their name.

I told them, simply, what problematic means, and I then asked them, concisely, with whom I was speaking.

They haven't texted back yet.  I'm fairly certain I ought to not text them anymore, considering I believe them to be quite young.

However, they did type in full words and not in the usual "text speak" I'm used to seeing from the younger generations...Perhaps my faith in those who will follow after me is not entirely lost yet.

And now for something completely different **Jacked from Monty Python**

We will soon have a guest blogger on here.  GL, or Good Lady, will be writing a bit of a rant which I shall post upon this blog and put out for the world to see!  I imagine it will be a compelling and very persuasive rant on the way life and love are affected by hollywood and the subsequent dramas and romcoms pulled forth from thence.

I used a lot of big words today.  When your mouth hurts from wisdom teeth extraction, you think up all sorts of fantastical words to use.  ESPECIALLY if one of the days during your recovery was spent watching BBC's Sherlock.

Heeeeee Sherlock :)
