Man O Man

Grrr... I am entirely too tired for words. However, that shriek of unbridled bliss you heard earlier tonight? Yeah, that was me, finally seeing our new software in place and operating! WOOHOOO! I was only planning to do one day's template and get the heck outta there, but noooo... It required me to do a full week's worth. However, considering the fact that I actually CREATED a full week's worth of programming templates in one afternoon, installed the software and got it working, start to finish, in a matter of about three hours, is nothing short of miraculous.

What's more, once I DID get the templates put together, I was able to actually generate a full day's programming in seconds. I mean, we're talking maybe fifteen seconds, if that. It took me HOURS to generate a log using the previous system!!! Needless to say, I am massively jazzed, hehehe.

No more going in on weekends to finish up a schedule, thank GOD!

Somebody apparently opened the floodgate on the dating site where I met K because now all of a sudden I am being deluged. I am about ready to delete my membership there. I am flattered but one guy who contacted me listed himself as "unhappily married." Now that I sent an email saying I don't do married men, period, he's changed his status to divorced and trying again.

What part of "over my dead body" could he possibly not understand???

Maybe he figured I had been approached by enough guys I couldn't remember who was who. (Admittedly, it's getting to that point now, but I do remember that name because I deleted it right away, repulsed.) I already had an entirely too-close encounter a few years back with the whole "I'm married but..." routine and it stinks to high heaven. What really strikes me is I listed honesty as my number one requirement. Hell-LOOO??? HOW does being a slime-sucking lowdown cheating pig qualify as HONESTY???

If this weren't a public diary I'd tell you what I REALLY think. The terminology would likely be much, much more colorful.

I guess I should be happy I'm getting so many responses. I put up the photo from last year and thought as heavy as I still am, I wouldn't draw a second look from anyone. Obviously I was wrong. Meanwhile since I filled out the astromically-long and borderline invasive profile form on eHarmony before discovering that they require blood, your entire bank account, and your firstborn for a down payment, I've also gotten several responses from THAT. (Though if I'd known all they wanted was my firstborn, I might've hit the site before my oldest turned 18. (JUST KIDDING... sort of.)

Talk about your feast or famine!!! It is such a bizarre thing. I get hit on periodically by radio groupies but these are men who don't know me from radio at all. Go figger.

But since K will be here tomorrow, we shall see where things go with that before I so much as think of meeting up with anyone else. And in the interim, I am on the verge of keyboard face, time to call it a night and turn in, hopefully to actually SLEEP.

Before - After

In the grander scheme of things, no soul can truly be replaced. Each one of us has a place in the universal tapestry. We each contribute our own color and texture. When one thread is snipped too soon, it distorts all the threads around it. Other lives can unravel and tear. If the wrong thread is ripped away, the whole fabric of life becomes dangerously fragile.
