Huh? What??


Once again another long delay in posting. It’s kind of becoming my new thing. Unfortunately it has been caused by technical difficulties as the computer I’ve been using burned out again and my back up suddenly decided that it doesn’t recognize what an Ethernet cable is anymore. Perplexing.

I would have been accessing at work, but there have been a culmination of events here that have made me decide that it was best not to. The first was an unfortunate event that put our company in the news at least here locally. There were reporters and truthfully it will probably be revisited by news crews before it’s all said and done. A lot of scrutiny was being put on any communications and I decided it best not to push it for the sake of blogging. The second event occurred a week or two afterwards where I became upset with my employer and a comment that was made. In the grand scheme of things it probably wasn’t a big deal, but I let my frustrations be known and once again I felt that my communications might be monitored so I kept from the blog.

So, last night I was flipping around the channels and saw a Nightline or ABC News television article talking about Dooce. I’m not a big fan of Dooce’s blog, but I know Cyber D reads it and so I felt in some way a connection to the story. Dooce and her husband apparently make a full on living from her blog. Wow. That’s all I really had to say about that.

I’m still coming to grips with the fact that times are changed from when I was growing up. It doesn’t seem that long ago, but apparently it was. This was proven to me once again by my son. He got introduced to a role-playing group through the public library. So now instead of being worried about the devil worshipping practices of RPG’s like when I was kid, it’s a publicly funded event. I left my son at the library thinking that maybe I hadn’t done my son any favors as this would certainly damage his dating potential for years to come. That’s one of the inarguable laws of man. Dice wielding role playing geeks don’t get girls. Low and behold when I pick him up I find that there were two girls in the group. One of them was one he knew from school who was also a first timer. WHAT???!!!!???!!?!?!?!?!???? I left my son for geeky fun and come back to find that it’s some hooking up thing?

The girl’s going nuts that she can’t get on the blog to write more. I don’t know what she has to say, but I know how tough it is to hold on to those fleeting ideas that work their mercurial way through our heads and I sympathize.

I think it’s safe to say that I am found to be the most attractive guy to the Lesbians at work. Seriously they’ve told me multiple times that they have crushes on me. I assume that what I feel at this prospect is akin to the legless person that wins a lifetime supply of running shoes. I’m also curious as to what kind of guy the homosexual woman finds attractive comparative to the straight woman. I also have the feeling that I don’t really want to know the answer.

Hey, I met the mother of my biological son playing D&D. In a dorm no less.

And Dags, when a Lesbian goes through the trouble to tell you that much, she's saying she's into women, but would like a little something if you're up for it.

Trust me.

Goo said...

This explains so much. The least of which is why no one in your household has been blogging lately. Welcome home.

Where's Ebony while Jr.'s busy hooking up at the public library with RPG gals? Or is he lovin' 'em and leavin' 'em?

Goo said...

GB, in hetero male/lesbian dialogue is "a little something" code for a few minutes alone and a turkey baster?

Q said...

Gus, I think it actually means that he is the closest thing that they are attracted to that they have found in the opposite sex ie. a woman. So, Dagomon is the clostest thing to a woman that these women have ever found in a man. That is something a person can hang their hat on.

Dagromm said...

Gus - Q keeps telling me that I'm one small step from a Cinemax movie. Of course he usually tells me that when he's standing on my doorstep with a weapon.

Goo - Obviously she's not at the library (aka the playa's club)

Goo - From what I can tell Lesbians don't use code to say things like that. They just say it.

Dagromm said...

Q - I've worried about that too, but then I figured my machismo was probably just too over powering for them.

Gyuss Baaltar said...

I'm telling you Dags, when lesbians go for some strange, they go for alpha males. It's awesome.

Dagromm said...

G. Bladder - If awesome means that it ends in my untimely death then you might be right. You're a skydiver though so I suspect that is exactly what awesome means to you.

Gyuss Baaltar said...

We'll talk sometime. Since your mom reads this blog, I won't go into detail.

Churlita said...

So, what it sounds like is that if you weren't married and those women were actually attracted to men, you could totally hook-up. So, maybe on the twelfth...Of never.

Dagromm said...

Gus - Sure let's talk on the twelfth...of never.

Churlita - I know what you mean, I could definitely see it happenning then...oh......crap.

Susan said...

I was in a rpg group with 10 guys and a lesbian when I was in high school. I met a guy I considered marrying and the lesbian is still my best friend who's sure I'm going to give in eventually.

Goo said...

Susan, the real question is did the lesbian have a crush on your boyfriend?

Dagromm said...

Susan - Was it as hot as you make it sound?
My experience is that Lesbians believe that all women are Lesbians at heart. Kind of like all straight guys believe that Lesbians are bisexual at heart.

NoRegrets said...

Oh, the things I miss when I don't check and old old old old post every single day... lesbians and movies and D&D, oh my.

Goo said...

Dagromm, I thought straight guys believed that ALL women are bisexual at heart. Doesn't that belief go right along with belief in the Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus? That is to say, men hold fast to the basic belief that fantastic things happen when they're between the sheets.

Dagromm said...

Nore - Thanks for stopping by. I'm impressed as many people noticed that something new was up as quickly as they did.

Goo - Well said. I guess we're all romantics at heart. We still believe that magic exists in the world. Female bisexual magic.

Susan said...

goo: Amusing story--She hadn't "come out" yet when we were all playing at first. When I broke up with the guy she actually started dating him. Years later I find out it's because he told her I was "totally into her" and convinced her we'd have a little triangle action.

dags: It was hotter. How could I put to words the sheer level of hotness involved with D&D and lesbians?

Dagromm said...

Susan - Wow, my D&D group completely sucked compared to yours!!

Goo said...

Susan, you're looking to get voted most popular girl on the internets, aren't you?

NoRegrets said...

I think she already won that vote. Of course, if she can't hug with {}, that may be revoked.

Dagromm said...

Goo - She's doing a good job of it.

Nore - I don't know what that means.

Goo said...

Nor, is there some sort of {pda} rule I don't know about?

Cyber D said...

Dags... they like your vagina.

Alan said...

I got nothin' except to say how much you all rock! You're like the cyberspace equivalent of the "How I Met Your Mother" cast!

Goo said...

Oaky, Alan. But I get to be Alyson Hannigan 'cause she's a freakin' trifecta, hat trick, and grand slam all rolled into one.
