On a related note, I just dropped and damaged my fucking brand new Palm Treo 650 Everything-Phone. Nice piece of equipment, though. Lovely plumage.
Hey, you know what rules? When you install a new motherboard that you thought was the same model as your old one, except it has a different ethernet controller and you don't see any obvious candidates for drivers when you go to rebuild the kernel, but since you have no internet you can't check online, so you have to put your old motherboard back in.
And I thought you were out on a Friday night.
Just lie to us, brother man. We'll never know the difference. For instance, I just came back from a red hot date with the girl of my dreams.
Prove me wrong.
I was supposed to go to a free concert (free to me, that is; the plebs have to pay for tickets). It's not too late for me to catch the headliners, so I might yet do that.
I just came back from a red hot date with the girl of my dreams ... and went straight for the...blogs? No, I'd say that's proof.
was wearing loose fitting pant-things, and you know I'm risk averse
Wait, I don't get this. You only date girls with tight pants? Do you need to see their crotch to make sure it's not the crying game?
You know, I was afraid to even mention that possibility, lest I be taken to task. Ogged, honestly, you're very picky, you know that?
Damn, it's even true in a not funny way. One of my (putative) friends said to me, after ex called off the engagement: "You know, you're never going to do better than that." But do I have to settle on Day 4?
do I have to settle on Day 4?
Also, calling it "day 4" anad reckoning by when your ex moved away is...a little suspicious.
Isn't it more like Day 380-something, anyway?
I'm here for you, dawg, but in a tough-love kind of way.
What, tough love doesn't include denial? Tough love sucks.
...pg's calves are shapely, her breasts firm; she turns off her pda and we exit the taxi...
and we exit the taxi.
w-lfs-n is waiting. "I'll take it from here, Ogged," he says, a pitcher of margaritatinis in one hand and a RAID array in the other...
...pg, I've got your fault tolerance right here...doh!...
I guess there's no accounting for taste, as you say in a pretty roundabout manner in that post. Me, I'm not so into skinny butts, I like women with a little backside.
I got trained to drive a cab by a middle aged black guy, and oh my god you shoulda seen the rear-ends that guy ogled. Those girls were extra-wide, and he was so into it.
God bless the diverse human family. Ogged see'em, won't hit'em; I pull up quick to get wit'em.
You really should shop at my Whole Foods.
".. and went straight for the...blogs? No, I'd say that's proof."
Darn, caught me in a lie. Sorry about that.
ogged, I think you could have been more efficient w/ your "women I won't date" post if you had use a Venn-Diagram approach.
and we exit the taxi...
And then her ankle wobbles slightly. Damn those heels. Heels? 2" heels? You mean you're 5'4" and not 5'6"
(pg does not meet 2 of ogged's criteria)
We're doomed. Should I bring the laptop?
pg does not meet 2 of ogged's criteria
what's the one other than height? and which of your criteria do ogged and FL fail?
Would that I could, Ogged.
You know, I went to that old post you linked-- the semen one-- and read my old bit about Adam Ace, which is just above it. What a coincidence...let's just say that I'll have a chance to see zany comedy in person sometime soon. No, I'm not taking one for the team.
On that rather sad note, I return to grading.
"I got trained to drive a cab by a middle aged black guy, and oh my god you shoulda seen the rear-ends that guy ogled. Those girls were extra-wide, and he was so into it."
Well, as a cab driver, he probably just wanted everyone to be comfortable.
cw-- it is a height-related issue. I tend to wear 2" heels most of the time. ogged doesn't like heels.
As for my criteria, I'm not sure but I'm wondering about:
Is passionate. Period. Yes, in that context. (I have no concrete data on this, but given that ogged wants people to like him so he can not like them I'm skeptical)
Neat and clean. Not obsessively so, though. (ogged, are you obsessive about these things?)
has sense of style (I think wearing the same thing every day is an automatic DQ)
Ha! I'm sure that was foremost in his mind. Eternal gratitude to whoever can find the article I read years ago (in Salon, I think) where white girls' butts are described as "figs with sunken cheeks." (I think that's an exact quote.)
Hmm. Passionate? Probably not a very good description of me, no. Neat and clean? Yeah. Not obsessive; fairly neat (paper defeats me), very clean. You do say "sense" of style, so yeah, I have a sense of style, but I'm not going to exercise it.
The passion bit ... that's one of the dealbreakers.
Were there any others that I missed?
And FL, how do you stack up against the criteria?
I have to ask whether Asians included Persians, and if so, why not? (Disclosure: not Persian myself, but find attractive Persian women absurdly attractive (and unattractive ones hideous).
It extra double special includes Iranians. Yes, they can be beautiful, but the great prophet of Allah himself couldn't convince me to tack on another Iranian family to my life.
What's the deal with Russians?
I love that the comment links are working.
Yeah, but see, what I asking is, should I be avoiding Iranian families?
That's a tough call, Tim. In my experience, they're invariably trouble, but if your own family is respectful of boundaries (better yet, distant), then one good Iranian family might be manageable. But she'd better be one hell of a woman to make it worthwhile.
Damn. Back to the non-exotics, I guess.
Ogged, subtly defending his people from colonization since 2005.
So, I'm trying to google you, scmTim, and so far, you live in Ontario, but host LAN parties in Spokane, and your IP address says you live about 30 minutes from where I'm sitting. Congratulations on hiding in plain view.
Congratulations on hiding in plain view. Yeah, that sounds about right. Buwahahahahaha!!!
Now that you've destroyed my Persian dream, I'm depressed. I'm going to bed to cry, cry, not masturbate, cry. (I am actually surprisingly disappointed to find that Iranian families are instrusive. Now I have to fetishize a whole new group).
to find that Iranian families are instrusive
Now I don't believe you know any Iranians.
In 39, is "What I asking" a typo or a spontaneous, unprovoked, Ali G impression?
I was honestly leaning towards the latter until no one else commented on it.
It's a good question, but Tim seems to have lost control of his keyboard lately. Note "instrusive" in 44 and "if so, why not?" in 35. Other threads today were even worse for him.
Hang on, "if so, why not?" actually makes sense in context. Still, he's been having trouble.
Well, it can be read charitably as, "Does your disqualification of Asians include disqualifying Persians, and if so, why have you chosen not to date Persians?" But, while it manages to communicate its meaning, the sentence is much harder to parse than a more standard communication of the same idea, without any kind of stylistic benefits from the difficulties.
"figs with sunken cheeks"
Well, it doesn't include the exact phrase, but were you thinking of this article?
Also, I'm with you on the English-as-the-primary-language criterion. Consistently flowing conversation is just too important for me.
No asians? Dude, you are so wrong.
I have to say that tweedlegirl is half ukranian and the other half is russian. (There's actually a bounday that goes straight down the middle of her body). And it's great. Immeasurable sadness? Nah. She makes me feel like a kid again though. But maybe that's just her, and not all russians.
"I just came back from a red hot date with the girl of my dreams ... and went straight for the...blogs? No, I'd say that's proof."
You think you kid. Back in my Pandagon days, a friend of mine had a hookup. When the uh, "deed" was done, she was tired and he was still a bit restless. So with her laying there in bed, he got up, went to the computer and, yes, pulled up Pandagon. She was much amused.
