Random thoughts inspired by my lava lamp

As I sit in front of my Mac with Firefox running, three tabs going, while texting a friend back in Michigan and chatting with my son on the old-fashion telephone, it occurs to me I may be overstimulated tonight.
My eyes wander to my lava lamp, and I slip into a trance as drool drips down my chin.
Kidding about the drool.
Back to Firefox ... I've got Yahoo mail open, my Match.com page and this new Blogger thingy, all of which I'm clicking back and forth among, checking messages, looking for e-mails. Oh, yes, and I just closed a tab where I was searching for condos through my Realtor's database.
As much as I don't want to admit it, I am back on Match.com, but I think I've figured out why. Because it's there. I've been off and on the site since November-ish. Each time I depart, I swear not to return. Yet, there I go, back again. Same old faces. Some kid (30-something) named Andrew seems to always be connected to Match. He IMs me every time I return and welcomes me back. I slouch in my chair and feel like a loser. Then I do some searches, see interesting faces and remind myself that this is the 2000s, and this is how people meet.

OK, I just LOVE the name of your blog! So clever. Yeah, I dated a lot after BH. I didn't have much luck with match.com or yahoo. And that e-harmony totally rejected me (I really can feel for the woman in those commercials) for some unknown reason. :-) Most of the people I dated came from a site I am somewhat embarassed that I visited.

The dates were OK. Went on what felt like a million and no one piqued my interest. Well there was this one person, but there were some boundary issues there -- that's all I'll say.

Anyway, it is so kool that you have a blog. I have to put your link up on my site (if that's OK).

Yes! You can put a link to my blog on your site. When I figure out how to do it, I'll put one on yours. I need one of those counter thingys too
