I am really bothered today, tonight, whatever it is now.

My integrity was questioned tonight. And from a person I really like and respect.


This bothers me.

Because I have plenty of integrity.

Even when I'm hiding something, I have integrity.

So there.

I'm taking the lead from alex, who's blog is in my links. I think that this is a site with good intentions, so help if you can.

I don't think that I made a good impression on my blind date. She left after about an hour.

But, the night wasn't a total lose. Shot pool, did Jaeger Bombs, and generally had a good time. Got to meet some people which is always good.

So...silver linings.

Just waiting for the lightening strike now.

Blind dates.

Blind dates can be a good thing and also a bad thing. They can also be a lame attempt for ratings.

I have been on a couple blind dates before. The last one I went on resulted in me getting married, and then my heart ripped out and stomped on. But this post is not about bitterness. Nor am I bitter about my divorce. These things will happen.

No, this is about blind dates themselves.

For example, I can recite the first 10 minutes of conversation of a blind date. It go pretty much along these lines......

" Hi, (insert date's name here). Nice to meet you. I have heard a lot about you. (Insert matchmaker's name here) told me that (he/ she) thought it would be good for us to meet."

So, you're a (insert occupation here)? Interesting. How do you like being a (insert job title here).

That's pretty much is the way the conversation goes for the next 10 minutes.

The thing about blind dates is that they always go one of three ways.

1. You both end up being interested enough to set up a second date. ( This rarely happens.)

2. You both end up completely confused about how in the hell and all places such, your mutual friend thought that the two of you had a chance in hell of hitting it off.

3. One of the people is interested in the other, and the non-interested person thinks that the other is some form of stuff that is found on toes.

I brought this up because I was set up on a blind date for this coming Friday.

I just hope I'm not toe nail lint come Friday night.

SYLLABICATION: ser·en·dip·i·ty
NOUN: Inflected forms: pl. ser·en·dip·i·ties
1. The faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident. 2. The fact or occurrence of such discoveries. 3. An instance of making such a discovery.

Serendipity. Serendipity. Serendipity.

This is a cool word. I think that I have been waiting for serendipity for most of my life. 'Specially when it comes to relationships. I always think when starting a relationship:" This might be the one." It has never turned out to be true. To paraphrase Toad the Wet Sprocket," Something's always wrong". Me, her, her mother's sister's aunt. There is always a wrench in the works. Many times I don't figure this out till I'm wearing the wreckage of the relationship like a dumped bowl of spaghetti on my head.

Well, Serendipity...come on...I'm waiting......still waiting........um, still here.

Listen, I can wear a weird hat if it'll help you spot me. Leave me a voice mail with a place I can meet you if your schedule is too full. E-mail me a web link?.......eh?........


Well, ya know where I am if you have something for me. Just leave it by the door if I'm not there. Unless you need a signature.....

I just realized something.

I'm a sucker for a pretty face and a sweet smile. 'Specially if the person that they are attached to is a nice person. 'Specially times two since I am single at this moment.

I am referring to something I did today for a very pretty and sweet girl. Suffice it to say it was something that I know that I wouldn't have done for a guy. And no, get your mind out of the gutter...it wasn't anything like that.

Sometimes you just have to follow your heart.

Even if it leads you somewhere you know that you shouldn't be.

This was not my first thoughts were of when I read the term "cornhole".

I'm trying to learn more about posting and linking stuff by keeping this blog. Any suggestions are most welcome.

Another reason that I am doing this is because I am a dork by nature, and this may be a good outlet for some of the goofy stuff in my head. Maybe get some of my comedic timing honed. Yeah...thats it......have my wit razor sharp.

Cause right now, according to some folks in authority, my wit's as sharp as a yam.

I love it when you find out about healthy activities that are also lots of fun.

I just might live forever.

Ok, having image problems.

I'm also having problems posting pictures on this thing too.

I haven't posted in a couple of days due to moving and my computer acting up after the move. I would like to say that I have stored up some really good posts, but if I did I'd be lying.

You'll just have to deal with it. Bleh.

One thing about moving. You never realize that you have so much crap until you have to move it. I got up Sunday, and thought that I'd be done in 4 hours at the most.

9 hours later I was......that was a day in my life I will never get back, damnit. That erks me.

Little lesson from your Uncle Graz.

You don't need that much crap.

Unless it's really neat electronic stuff...or goes fast.....or makes a lot of noise..... or looks cool....

OK, added comments to this thing.

Flame away!

Or, feel free to stroke my ummm.....ego....ego....ego, damn it!

Ok, I've been busy for a few days. I would say that I haven't had time to post anything, but really I have . I've just been spending too much time at Dave's blog to come here and post. Priorities. And partying.

You just have to enjoy what you have . Don't sweat the small stuff. Remember, what you get for a long life is old.

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why they call it the present!

Now if I could just find out where to exchange these gifts........

Inspirational thought of the day: Take time to notice the little things. The sun shining in your window at the start of spring, the sound of kid's laughter while they're playing, the smell of your shirt right after it comes out of the dryer, a bikini on a lovely young lady.......sorry about that last one......wait a minute, no I'm not....hey, it's my inspiration I'm talkin' here!

Yeah, Bikinis......

Have you ever met someone that just strikes something in you, and you think; " Ya know, if I asked her out, we'd probably hit it off."? Well I know a girl like that. But, in the present situation, there is not much of a chance that I can ask her out. It's kinda related to my real job. I look at her and talk to her, and notice that there seems to be something there?? I don't know, but I do abruptly stop talking to her at times, because if I don't, I will ask her out. That would be ok, but there is the work thing, and the way the harassment situation is, it probably wouldn't be a good idea.

So, until the situation changes in some form or fashion, I'll just smile and speak of pleasantries while talking to her. And try not to stare at her like some sort of stalker. There is a fine line between admiring from afar, and being a sick perverted oogler.

Hope that I haven't crossed that line yet.

Meh.... I could wax romantically poetic here, but I won't. I'll just continue to wax sarcastically frenetic.
