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.
