The SG Burlesque is back, so I'm reactivating and heading out to catch the show Wednesday.

I'm a little sad. I used to know some really cool people through the site and I've lost touch with every single one of them. Why did I do that? Stupid move. Making new friends is hard. I should have had the sense to keep them...

New girlfriend has become fiance'. Have transitioned from me and my two boys in a big expensive house to me, two boys, my fiance', and her two girls all packed into a space barely large enough. Some joy, some drama. Suddenly I am remodeling my kitchen. Since when does "Will you marry me" translate into "May I please destroy my kitchen and slowly rebuild it?"

I made up a new word today.

Intoxificated! It's like intoxicated, but now with 20% more syllables!

I am so done with the bald profile photo. That was two years ago. Now if I can just get some time free to figure out how to turn this huge digital photo into a small enough version to upload . . . I think there are help threads on the boards explaining how, but I have so much real life stuff going on that getting photo support...

**UPDATE: THE SCAN SHOWS CONTINUED REMISSION. 28 MONTHS AND COUNTING**

Taking the sting off of the Worst Internet Date Ever is the fact that I met a girl! A different girl! She's smart and hot and into me and my best friend never fired her!

Apparently some of the emotional growth work I have been working on over the last few years has paid...

That's very good news about the better date! Congrats. smile
How'd the scan go? Generally, saving as GIF or JPG will decrease the size of the file quite a bit.

For better or worse, I got about the cheapest couch I could manage. I've heard good things about the company that makes them though, so maybe they'll last a while.
Re: Comments - What can I say, one good turn deserves another.

Congrats on the clear scan!

Worst. Internet. Date. Ever.

Through the crisis at work. Hired four new people over the course of a month. That is to say, hired eight over the coure of two months and ditched the four losers.

Then I got it into my head that after all I have been through, I deserve a date. So I posted on Craigslist. "Healthy Professional Seeks Same." I used...

What are you doing tomorrow night? I'm going to a karaoke thing and I'd love to see you in the flesh if possible!!!

smile

Call me... I think you still have my number. If not email my personal account or I'll log in and will email you.

I need to hear more about the above awkward attempt at dating... seeing as I'll be single soon I need to be prepared for the worst. I have a feeling I'm going to suck at being single but who knows.

Hey, yeah I have not talked to her in a while. I saw her out and about about a month ago and she seemed fine but I'm not aware of any issues. I'll try and inquire next time I run into her.

Still working my ass off. Having slightly less fun. But making progress. Every day, another half step forward in being a mature company capable of handling this amount of work. And work is all I have to talk about right now. I know - Booo-ring!!!! But what can I tell you? I'm an engineer. Getting the new pneumatic system set up in the shop is...

Yeah, I'd definitely expect you'd be one of those who'd definitely appreciate this situation with the surgery. Mystery ailments are no fun. Surgery, also no fun, but it can beat the hell out of the alternatives.

The new customer I thought was going to increase sales 25% instead more than doubled them. We slipped behind bit by bit until finally we were shipping product next day air to make it to the production line an hour before it was due to be installed. We were probably 48 hours away from losing the account for good and thereby crippling my company's...

Coingratulations. Watch out for the Zyrtec, a friend of mine started having psychotic dreams on it. And she's not already on edge. That I'm aware of wink.

Good luck staying remissed, man. My ex just survived a bout of peritoneal cancer that decided to hang out and pretend it was ovarian. She made it through too, but I know that crap isn't easy.

your happiness may be sleep deprived delirium, but that's good too. biggrin

Tonight I took a couple cans of sterno onto the back deck and toasted s'mores with my kids. That was awesome. I am the luckiest guy ever.

My mom was just telling me about an Argentinian tango lesson she had in Buenos Aires last week. Weird that that's come up in conversation twice in a week.
It sounds like a hell of a lot of fun. I kinda had a similar experience taking salsa lessons a few years back. That was a freaking hoot.
alyssum:
Not a whole lot, my mom travels a lot. They got robbed while they were there, and they ate a lot. confused

Diddled around doing nothing Saturday, then around 2:30 I got off my butt and packed for a hang gliding trip. Headed up to this great flying site in Washington. Managed one evening flight in fading lift, 14 minutes, then camped out with the flying crowd and got two more flights this morning for another 25 minutes. Loaded up the glider, hit the road, and...

I was in a funk. Didn't get out of bed yesterday and I'm feeling equally apathetic and weird today.

I am bummed I missed out though... I just couldn't pull it together last night.

It was fun blabbing with you a bit at Noir on Sunday. I'm still surprised out of all the events that we'd never gabbed before. confused Ah well, it's always good to know you can still meet new people even with the usual crowd!
