2555 Means Something, But I Don’t Know What

January 3, 2011

Life is good, dear reader:  life is good. And busy.  Hoo-boy, is it busy.  What a great weekend.  I climbed North Dome and Sherrill on Friday with Heather, Tom, Debbie, Doug (whom I sort of know from the forum but hadn’t actually met in person) and some dude named Ed.  After dinner and dropping Debbie […]

Even More Internet Dating

December 6, 2010

Once upon a time, dear reader, I was an internet dating website addict.  I used to come home from work, turn on my computer and open up Internet Explorer.  My home pages were Yahoo! Personals, OkCupid, PlentyofFish, and eHarmony.  (Hell, I might have even had my IE in my startup folder.)  Then I’d spend the […]

Trolling for Chicks on the Internet

October 8, 2009

I’ve been feeling like I’m halfway getting a cold over the past couple of days.  On Monday, my head felt a bit congested – but not in my sinuses, kind of like over my ears.  You know, where my brain should be filling the space?  I don’t get it, but it was worse today:  I […]

Still MORE Internet Dating Pickup Lines That Didn’t Work

September 9, 2009

My sister Katie (who always remembers to bring the awesomeness) suggested today that I post some more stuff about internet dating.  I think she’s probably looking for a funny-ish rant along the lines of “Yet Another Reason Why eHarmony Sucks“, but I don’t know if I have something like that in me tonight. At this […]

Yahoo! Personals Blows

June 4, 2009

It really does.  Maybe I shouldn’t be biting the hand that feeds me:  I’ve been on more dates from Y!P than all of the other dating sites combined.  And I am and have been on quite a few (dating sites – I’m not on a date right now). No, dear reader, I’m in the office […]

Internet Dating: Art or Science?

May 15, 2009

Thanks everybody for the comments to yesterday’s post.  I’m always happy to receive (and mostly discard) internet dating advice.  I don’t know that I’ve mentioned it recently, but I’ve been doing the internet dating thing for about three and a half years now.  Whether I’ve got the whole thing down-pat is certainly up for debate.  […]

Anyone up for Another eSocial Experiment?

April 28, 2009

A few weeks ago, Didi and I did an “eSocial Experiment” that worked out pretty well.  It was a lot of fun for both of us and our readers as well.  Though Didi and I know each other much better now, back then we only had vague impressions of one another via our blogs and […]

Death to eHarmony

March 21, 2009

The only thing that has thusfar kept me from putting my fist through my screen in an attempt to cause great pain to eHarmony has been the fact that – aside from my education and car – my laptop is the most expensive thing I own.  Not, I repeat: not because I know that eHarmony […]

The non-Art of Internet Dating

January 29, 2009

Below are more failed internet dating pickup lines from October and November of 2008 (all on Yahoo! Personals).  I’m not quite sure if there’s anything cathartic about reading back through these.  Click here for December 2008 and early January 2009.  You’ll see that I was in a bit of a jaded/cynical phase around the beginning […]

On Being a Teacher – Part 2

January 23, 2009

“Those who can, do. Those who can’t, teach. Those who can’t teach, criticize.“ If you read yesterday’s post all the way to the end and did, in fact, hit that “RSS” button up top, thank you for subscribing to this feed.  If you read yesterday’s post all the way through and didn’t hit the “RSS” […]
