Damn, it's been a long time. I got an e-mail from a buddy out on the Left Coast, and I thought my reply would make a fairly decent post:
It's been one of those days - I got a reply written, but not sent, because I thought I post it to my blog, which I couldn't log into, then I re-booted, and about five hours later, here we are.
So, to recap...
Facebook... I don't get it at all. I've heard from two old classmates, but that's about it. I can count my friends on less than two hands, and that works for me. Interestingly, one of them seems to MIsteress of Pain. We e-mail, and have occasional phone conversations.
Glad to hear that our old boss is no longer a direct threat to you. Proof of the Law of Cesspools: the really big chunks always rise to the top.
200 lbs! Wow!!! Send pictures. I haven't weighed only 200 since late in the last century. Yes, I remember Bob C. Glad to hear he's OK. The Kiddo's mom is getting ready to retire, too. Makes for strange feelings, or perhaps feeling of strangeness. Given my current financial situation, I don't see that in my future anytime soon, tho.
Dating... I'm listed on Match and Chemistry, but I can't get to e-mail and such because dues aren't in my budget. But, yeah, I've been out on a few dates since Christmas. Nothing took tho. Again, given my circumstances, I'm not sure I'm ready to be out there right now, anyway. I'm fortunate that I haven't run into one of those over-exuberant ladies who feel it's their right to hug anyone they choose. I don't think that a self-defense plea would get me out of the charges.
Say "Hi" to your lovely wife and any one else I know out there.
