Hey JR...came back just in time for this:

290 in practice (bowling, for JR's benefit) today...happened in my second game; started w/ a weak 10, which I picked the spare up on, then the last 11 strikes in a row. I also had 14 in a row bridging the second and third games, and 18 out of 19 with the last 4 in the first game. As the operator of my center's pro shop told me, however, "Now you have to do it in league."

Debt is the path to the dark side. overconsuming leads to borrowing. Borrowing leads to debt. Debt leads to bankruptcy

Met some chick on some free dating site. Confirmed female, not bad looking, and so far as I can tell, not completely psychotic. She is a woman, so possible psycosis.

Date with her on Thursday.

Basically South Korea is screwed because everyone else has sold out to CHina. And south Korea has to wait until the hammer falls on them before anything can be done.
those leaked cables seem to imply that china is pretty fed up with best korea as well

If it's true. Those cables also indicate that they may NOT mind a unified Republic of Korea. Mostly because of the massive amount of money they could make helping Seoul rebuild the North, and the MASSIVE logistical and re-education effort that would take.

There's billions in profit in that event, and China, Japan, and the U.S. see it. Just how far China is willing to let this go before they start working towards re-unification is unknown.

All I want for Christmas every year is a reunified Korea......

And every year I'm disappointed. Eventually... on day.

Keyan, take a precaution or two and let us know where you're goin'.

That way, if you disappear, we can search for you.

Eventually.

I mean, well totally get around to it.

Yeah. But I guess it's a pretty stupid idea. I probably won't go after all. My heart's not really in it anyway. I haven't really cared much in two years since the last one. It (what there was of it) didn't end in a way that was particularly conducive to moving on, and I don't really think I can. It's not really fair to try to start something with someone when you're really thinking of someone else. And with someone so far away, it's just asking for trouble.

That is pretty far for something that's hardly a sure thing.

So... Have her come to you!

I was however relishing the idea of being able to say that Keyan is now Bi... coastal.

Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

Stressed. Very stressed.

And tired. Oh, so very tired.


I need to survive the next couple of days at work... and at home... and in my relationship... then I might be able to sit down and just think again for a change. Seems like it's been a long time since I've had a chance to do that...

Ugh.

That reminds me. A co-work who is in his late 50s was complaining how sore he was. He was bragging he had some wild sex the night before. I joked he should take it easy at his age.

He said "At my age after having sex you get all stiff afterwards"
I couldn't stop laughing when I replied "I thought you were suppose to get all stiff BEFORE sex?"

Couldn't post this earlier b/c of DNS problems...

High 6 (689; 250-232-207) last night in league...only two open frames all night, and both leaves were of the "tough" variety. Average up to 188 now.

My team won out game last night of curling. the opposing team conceeded after 6 ends

US__ 0 2 0 0 2 3
THEM 0 0 2 1 0 0

For the first 3 ends I was doing nothing but peeling opposing guards off. DId a double take out in the first end to clean things up. After that the opposing team started helping us by pushing our rocks in and theirs out.

Date with the girl I meet online went surprisingly well. I mentioned seeing TRON, and asked if she was at all interested.

I'm seeing TRON tonight with her.

I can't wait to see Tron.

Gotta get the GF over to watch the first one so that the sequel will make sense to her.

Office XMas party at work today. Kinda weird... but OK time I guess. I ended up with candles from the Yankee Swap.

I ALWAYS end up with candles from the Yankee Swap.

But this time maybe I can figure out how to put them to good use during a romantic interlude some time...

Zargon: Yeah, I suggested it and she said yes. Whether or not she's truely intrigued is yet to be determined. I caught several comments proving that she does think I'm attractive.

And she's into British Humour. Though I have no idea what the hell Red Dwarf is. She hasn't read the Hitchhikers Guide though...... >.>

Ed: Now you have a use for those candles. ^.^

Red Dwarf was pretty funny... though it's been years since I've seen it.

You might enjoy it. Worth checking out.

And geek girls are great!

One of us!

going beta in a few days. one of the best loopholes is that if you buy it in Alpha all future updates are included with purchase.

I am currently working on a 100 block diameter glass hemisphere. about 2/3s of the way done, and i am making it more difficult by mining the resources to make it (1 coal per 8 sand = 8 glass)
