The Scribe.

The Scribe is coming. Me and James-see’s future roommate, Eric Scribe, just came to the WP today to sign the papers (for his soul). So, he’ll be officially moving in tomorrow. We will soon have Dolby 5.1/DTS! Muahahahaha!

After work today, I thought about going to see Kim after work, and maybe give her a ride home or something, but she wasn’t there. One of her colleagues said that she goes out drinking a lot on the weekends with her friends. He also mentioned that I should “make an effort” to go with her, even if I don’t go out all that much. What the hell did he mean by that? Okay, I’m sorry, but I don’t report the details of my relationships to people, nor do I change myself just to fit others’ needs. I already told Kim that I don’t drink or smoke, so if she does want me to accompany her to the bar and stuff after work, then we’ll work something out. I’m not a total jackass when it comes to making sacrifices for the significant other, but I don’t need people telling me to do it when Kim and I haven’t even gone out on a date yet! Technically, we’re not even dating yet. All we’ve done is set up an appointment for a date, and that’s it. Call me old-fashioned, but I’d prefer to woo her at a steady pace. If she wants to go faster, then I’ll adapt to her needs. But, I’m not gonna sit around and let strangers tell me what I should and shouldn’t do with MY relationships. End of conversation, period.

Oh, did I mention that I’m thinking of Kim all day, in anticipation of our upcoming date? Yeah, it’s the first time I’ve done things the traditional way, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I mean, where’s the romance these days? Isn’t anticipation part of that anymore? These days, it seems as though people go, “Hey, wanna go out with me?” “Sure.” What happened to the “when” and “I’ll pick you up at so-and-so”? What about the, “I really enjoyed our date, let’s go out again”? Taking it slowly? Goddammit, I know couples that just start frenching or having sex on the first date, and that is SO not appropriate! Blah, maybe I’m an old fogey, but this is how I prefer dates to go. The exhilaration of holding hands, and all the warm feelings and stuff. Isn’t that what the first date’s all about?

So, I’m thinking of taking Kim out to lunch somewhere nice (maybe Baaco’s Pizza or Ilios?) and since I won’t be taking a car, we’ll have plenty of time to walk and talk afterwards. I need another idea to really top the end of the date. I’d take her back to my place to show her my hobby with computers, but that’s too soon – it’s more like a third date thing. Hahaha, I’m thinking way too ahead of myself. So… I have no idea what else to do. Too bad there’s no karaoke in town – that’s the perfect place to take a first date… well, I still have another day to mull over it. Maybe I can get some ideas by inspiration? Osmosis, perhaps? Hahahaha.

Nobody has to worry, though. I won’t be showing her slides of photosynthesis or my impressive line of recursive k0d3. I’m a g33k, not a dork. O_o

The one with all the Lesson Reviews.

I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with this blog ever since I started using Hummingbird last fall. So, I decided to try an idea of mine called Lesson Reviews. Essentially, it’s more of a “what I learned from X anime” than a review, but the thing is, there will be good and […]


  1. I just was observing the details of your current relationship status..well I haven’t been into checking people’s LJ’s over the past month or so because school started again for me, leaving me less free time :| but I’m glad to hear that you have more of a grip on what you want out of a relationship and that you have a great chance with Kim. Good luck with your date!! Can’t wait to hear about it.

  2. Yeah, it took me a while, huh? Well… I am just testing out the waters anyway… I haven’t been in any kind of romantic involvement since 1998, so… yeah. We’ll see how everything goes. I’ll post full details on “the date”, following the consuming of “the muffin”.
