  2. Ahem… now for the rest of it…damn you got a lot done while not blogging…hehehehe…I know the feeling. However there wee a few nuggets there… *arranges date for evening* minds want to know :)

    And dude…I am so jealous of all of you who find time to read. And no, I know it’s my fault. Been on the phone a lot and have been terribly busy with work. But yeah I should make the time cause it’s vital to me.

    I think I am gonna set myself on some kind of schedule…yes, that’s it. A schedule.

    *storms off to make the schedule*

  3. ^5 nat!

    i had planned to clean my place today after i blogged… and instead blogging happened during…

    date six.

    i don’t really have time to read… like it takes me two weeks to read a book instead of a day like it would if i had lots of time. and i have SO many books in my queue… but i get them done eventually.

    but your phone calls are good right?

    do you keep a book in your pocket for those waiting times?

    *giggles at image of storming nat*

  4. Giggle @ ^5…might have to steal that.

    I need to clean today or tomorrow…was more in a cooking mood…I made coconut shrimp and rice and other stuff.

    I take a book to class when I know I will be showing long clips or when they are taking a test.

    Phone calls are awesome *giggle* and the ones that are a bit bitter are also good because there is a lot of learning to be done…and I like things real… not fairy tale perfect. :)

    Dude I so need a schedule…storming aside…I must make one.

  5. nat: yeah it’s an old nerd thing from my irc days. steal on, i love it.

    i wasn’t in th emood to cook so i got a pile of other shit done instead…. i love that you cook now, that’s so awesome for you.

    see just have a book with you at all times. a paperback, not a work book, and read it when you have time. you’ll see … books get read but slowly.

    mmmm phone calls are good! especially yours!

    i think the bit bitter ones are in some ways better… because they are real and learning process at the same time.

    heh schedule on babe… :)

  19. A date?? What’s that? Is that when I go to chuckie cheesies with my 5 year old? Or is it when he drags me to another video store to find another Lindsey Lohan movie? By not blogging, you sure do a lot…and still blog better than 99% of them out there.

  20. elle: yeah i had a lot of fun with the list…

    hubris: you shush, you know all about him…

    and yeah inhaling is good

    terry: it is…

    i would say he is all of those things…

    matt: did!

    cas: it’s like when two people get together and hang out and sometimes they make out and sometimes they boink…

    and no, lindsey lohan movies, though fun, do not count as dates *g*

  29. (well not like ANY of this matters)
    But I approve!!!!! and this is why;

    Okay so he is a cutie! blue eyes? sort of hard to tell from the pics…but are you kidding me the pic of him lying on the floor acting like his cat is just way too cute! I shows he has a sense of humor which is a must!

    He I assume from the pics like the outdoors, which is totally neat. Outdoorsy’ people tend to be more fun and never get bored. :)

    And he is a techi…and that I think is WONDERFUL! He can completely appreciate your mind and the knowledge base that you have, I like that, that is important.

    I noticed that he mentioned you for the frisbe date…ahh

    So I am secretly jumping up and down for you and screaming GO SASS! (I was never a cheerleader but I will cheer for you) even if you will not I am excited for you ;)



    Oh I c that you left me a link…did I check out the wrong dude? I just clicked his profile and it took me right to him…hmm hold on I shall return

  36. Sounds like you got a lot done while writing your blog list.
    The date does kind of jump out at one, as the most interesting thing in the post.

    What great weather we’re having this week. Its hard to get motivated to blog when its spring, the weather’s fine and one is going on date six. I’m impressed you blogged anything at all.

  37. hunee: i’m not sure we’re as cute as you’re making us out to be but okay… and he’s sweet to me, no worries…

    kathi: *huggers!* miss you babe.

    clarity: i did… although i meant to clean anyway… and it was such a nice awesome bright and mellow day.

    this weather is freaking awesome, i can’t wait for more of it!
