Cost of the War in Iraq
WARNING!!!! if you know me personally, you may read my diary, but if you do, you take the chance of hearing things you don't want to know, misunderstanding what I've written and being hurt by it. If you are unsure if it is ok to read, save yourself and me the grief and heartache, and ask first!!! Please note that this is a DIARY, ie my subjective feelings, hearsay, suppositions, and outpourings of ranting of the moment. It does not represent objective news, the whole of what I think of a topic or someone, or even a thought-out representation of any of the above. Keep that in mind. Thanks. * Here is a Diary Etiquette Read Me.
Robbing the Cradle
Well, I had the sort of internet blind date with the 28 yr old tonight for dinner. Unlike Radiogurl who thinks that younguns would bore her and vice versa, we didn't seem to have a huge problem. It was a fun time. We each ordered a sandwich and then traded halves, shared the chocolate cheesecake, and were irreverent and funny and talked for more than three hours.
Fortunately he seems to be both scientific and artistic (his father is a physicist and he himself switched from sciences and is doing his masters in creative writing), has a good sense of humour, likes to tell stories, doesn't seem offended when people ask if he was kicked in the face by a horse (he had bone cancer in his face, and had a huge chunk of bone removed), and can make jokes about cancer. We don't seem to have incompatibilities in discussing Intelligent Design and theism. He even said my dog was cool (he walked back here with me so I could walk my dog and he catch the bus).
He recommended some music and movies (he knows tons more than me... writes professionally on both and also on mainstream comics), and does graphic design for a role-playing card game.
Anyways, it was very pleasant and fun.
And he bothered to email to say he had fun. And that he hasn't yet run out of things to say, which is a good sign. hehe.
Got piss all done for work once I got home. Dang it all.
First, to bed, since the contractor to fix the water damage from the upstairs' tenant's fiasco is coming to do an evaluation at 10:30. Wanna be up, have the doggie walked, and copies made of the approved repairs made to give to him and to the tenant involved before he arrives.
2 People have left cute, callous or caring comments on the wench's wordiness!!
ps, you'll need to email me for a username and password
Goodbye Michael. May your next life be kinder to you. - Thursday, Jun. 25, 2009
