Golden Gate Ass Grabbing

There is a hobo/freaky dude in San Francisco who is lucky I controlled myself and didn’t punch him.

As you might guess I am out of town this week – I thought I would have plenty of time to post but every time I get to my hotel room I crash immediately. I will post pictures when I come home, this city is amazing! Except for the ass grabbing…

Jesus may save, but I think he is smarter than me

I was halfway through a relatively interesting post describing my adventures at a local coffee shop, my love of a Croatian accent, and my eHarmony woes, but somehow I managed to lose half of it before I hit save. I’m not sure I deserve the title of Geek anymore, I may have to downgrade myself to flat out sad little nerd.

Instead of re-writing it, I played around with layouts, etc. The new colors and layout (Neo-Sapien theme) appeal to me, but I dislike that clicking on the header does not take you home, and for some reason right now the two columns of widgets that should be on the right side have been bumped to the bottom of my screen. I may have to go back to the old theme for a while if this doesn’t get corrected.

Evil Cat

Not-interesting news of the day – my cat decided to get up at 4am this morning and launch herself off of the nightstand, knocking my cellphone off into my trashcan, which promptly fell over, spilling out some broken plastic hangers and a diet coke can. She then proceeded to go and sit by my door and groom herself very, very loudly until I dragged myself out of my warm cocoon and let her out. This is all after I didn’t fall asleep until 2am, because the trip to the previously mentioned coffee shop left me wired for sound. Why can’t I remember to go decaf after a certain time of day? It’s like I randomly revert to thinking I’m in college again and can sleep in or nap between classes, so don’t have to worry about getting to bed at a reasonable time. I think the cat was punishing me for being stupid.

Update: I realized that the layout problems I was having are only there if I have a sidebar open in my firefox window, such as the bookmarks or the history sidebar. It is still kind of annoying, but I suppose the theme will stay.

hello there

All 5 or 6 of you who were wondering what happened to me, you will be happy to learn that the work deadline has been met more or less successfully as of today. We still have a good bit of work before the project is as it should be, but I don’t expect any more 10-12 hour days in the near future. So, hopefully, I won’t be too mentally drained to keep up with posting here!

The biggest news in my life at the moment isn’t even mine… right about when I decided that I would start this blog as well as jump into the online dating universe I tried talking a number of my friends into dating online as well, with varied levels of success. I had one or two try some free sites, another (who lives in a different city) tried yahoo along with me, and my roommate decided to give eHarmony a spin. The others had about as much success as I have so far, which is to say not much, but the roommate actually met someone she liked, started dating him, and canceled her subscription within a month. Fast forward a few months, and guess who is planning to walk down the aisle in August? Yep. And yours truly is the maid of honor, of course. I’m actually a great maid of honor candidate since I had that close call with wedded bliss not all that long ago, I even had some wedding planning books laying around.

People keep asking me if I think they are moving too fast, if I’m worried, if he’s some sort of predator after her credit rating. Honestly, I don’t know the answer to any of those questions. If it were me, it would be too fast. I don’t trust people quickly, and the one time I have really been in love it took a long time for those feelings to grow from the friendship they started as. So for me it would be too fast. But the both of them are open, caring, genuine people who know what they want from life, and now they’ve discovered it includes each other. For someone else it would be too fast, but for them it is just perfect, and as one of her oldest friends and her honor attendant, I am going to do everything in my power to make this time amazing for her, and not try to add to her worries. She has parents, other friends, all sorts of people who will try to make her doubt. I just want to make her happy. She deserves it more than anyone I can think of.

As for the fiancé, I’ve already impressed upon him that I am a force to be reckoned with. We like each other, I think he is an amazing guy, but he knows that I am protective of my own. I think perhaps I was designed (by God? circumstances? who knows?) to be a little more wary in order to watch out for those that are not, and I fully intend to.

Orange Roses

The orange, yellow, and white roses (to match the wedding colors) he gave her along with her engagement ring were lovely, and they looked great in our house, so I think he might just work out. But I have my eye on him.

And I’m switching to eHarmony. More on that later.
