But today I feel a need to go more than a little off topic.
So, like just about everyone else over 18 and single, I signed at one of those dating web-sites. I think it's just one, anyway. You know, free to sign up, expensive to actually do anything with? And then they send you email *forever*.
Now, maybe I wasn't clear about who and what I am. Or maybe I'm just *really really* shallow, but... most of the "we think you'll like these guys" look like escaped convicts. Or un-escaped ones. The ones who say they're 35 all look older than my father.
Now, I'm sure there are (some) nice guys in these links they send me, but really? If I wanted to date overweight, balding men with questionable hygiene who lie about their age, I'd go down to the gaming store and get one. One guy obviously cropped his photo down from one of those hunting pictures, you know, where they hug or otherwise crawl all over whatever they just killed? How does hunter= guy I'll like?
I know the south is a little short on granola crunching techie-guys, but that's the best they can do? I'm starting to think I may have moved in the wrong direction. Mom likes to tell me that it's good that I moved here, that friend's kids who moved to NY or LA are all moving home because they can't find jobs. I carefully avoid reminding her that *I* didn't find a job here, I invented one on the internets.
So, single veggie-types who'd like to date (or at least know IRL) other veggie-types should probably live in places where there actually *are* other veggie-types. Oh well.
Now I really need to get to work or I won't be living *anywhere*.
