Thanks! That was a hell of a site update.
Yeah, a positive that should have been a negative. Gets me every time.
Thanks for the test message!
Good idea on the waiting awhile. It takes some time to regain yourself.
I wish I were close enough to give you a hug.
There were many reasons to wait.
In which form did you see it coming?
I'm suddenly worried a stay-pufft marhsmallow man will be appearing in downtown Columbus.

Interestingly enough that's exactly what I predicted, but I woul dhave predicted somehting like that no matter what. I always do that. This is actually the first time I was right. I'll do a little dance now.
OK, done. I looked foolish.
In response to this, that's sort of sad and unfortunate about you and Tina. I like her. I like you. However, I'm glad you're seemingly very rational and understanding of the entire thing. Way to be an evolved fish.
Way to be an evolved fish.
Thank you, thank you very much.
I like Tina, as well. More than I like just about anyone, in fact.
Then again, "rational and understanding" is a limited set of terms when you think about the fact that I have basically used the internet to announce my newly-minted singleness.
Holy cow. While you continue handling all this so well, don't forget to take care of yourself.
I'm well taken care of.
But damn, that's a beautiful icon.
Though I have to admit, "coordinated terror attack" and "tea" reminds me more of the Boston Tea Party.
We seem to convienently forget that a bunch of fanatical terrorists attacked British shipping in our earliest struggles to become our own nation.
Actually, I don't have the date offhand. Back in May? Sounds about right. There's an entry regarding it in the clergy journal, but I have no idea if there's one in my LJ. I suspect I did something that I thought was clever and cryptic at the time.
And yeah, staying friends is a huge plus. She's the best girl I know.
So, I was thinking last night.
KURS is like the best game, ever. Because you can do all sorts of naughty things and have it be completely platonic. Well, sorta.
I think I might make up a naughty rule ... *grin*
Great job, btw.
So what is KURS?
The vague mentions of it make it sound like something I'd enjoy mightily.

I wish the best for both you and Tina. I'm glad you can remain friends. That is very good, and something I have never been able to do.
A breakup party is a very good, very sane idea. I will be there.
I like nearly all my ex-girlfriends. Of course, I have no idea what I did to get them to be willing to talk to me after. :)
*poking head out of bombshelter and peeking around*
That was it? Are you sure there won't be a giant marshmellow dude... maybe on Boston Harbor Way, with a giant tea set and biscuits that say, "Eat me!"...? (Yikes, not that I want to put any ideas in your head, of course.)
Sorry to hear about the breakup, though I've seen (or at least *thought* I saw) that one coming a long time ago. (It's not like I have ring-side seats -- just a pretty accurate "gut" sense of things sometimes.) You seem to be taking a very mature and clinical approach to this "paradigm shift," but if you ever need a friend's ear or shoulder, you sure know where to find me/us/Cranes.
I just want you to know that the fact that you're now single has nothing
to do with my recent decision to purchase a TCG thong
. (I have an entirely different use in mind for that, which I shall not divulge at this time.)
Oooh, is the use for the thong the one you mentioned to me yesterday? Just a yes or no will do. And don't worry, I won't tell a soul.

*pieces starting to fit into place*
It's really only been a couple of months since you broke up. When my ex-husband and I got divorced, I didn't date anyone for near on two years, and no one seriously for about five or six years.
And, I am friends with most of my exes also. :)
It's been three years & I haven't dated at all yet. Although at this point that's partially due to never getting asked out.
I saw your plans for DMF '06. Those are some tough trails to hike or backpack. I know you're in shape but, damn. Take water, take LOTS of water. Do you want a quick desert survival course or lesson in edible plants of the desert before you go?
It is usually a good idea to wait a while before dating again after such a long relationship, I didn't so take that for what little it may be worth. I didn't want a boyfriend again so soon and thought that I'd avoid it by just finding a FB to have some fun with. Well it sure was fun, and now... he's my boyfriend. Not that I'm complaining, too much. Kudos to you for waiting a while.
I'm not concerned about the difficulty. It's a series of short hikes (I think the longest is 16 miles or so), and I know where there's water if I need it. I'm no more than a day away from water at any point, as Manning Camp has it year-round. I've hiked in the desert before, and really enjoy it. One just needs to be very careful is all.
If I get to Rincon and can't find water, I'll skip the summit and hike back to Manning, which is only about 10 miles (about 5 hours of walking).
Plus, I have two buddies to hike with.
I'm sorry to hear about your break-up. I always thought you and Tina were a good couple. But I'm very glad you're both still friends. (And the party idea rocks!)
Good luck with everything.
Your invitation to the party is in the mail. I do hope that you can make it.
“I've actually met women with these names, and that's affected my opinion…
Jessica (but not Jessie)”
Ah well, at least now I know.

Re: Hot names
Hehe. The list was actually written well before I met you. And keep in mind: the fact that I don't find a name "hot" doesn't mean I don't find the person hot.
Note a few other names on that list, some of which may surprise.
I only added one name to it when I copied it over. Didn't even read the rest of it. It was originally an LJ post. I can't find the post at the moment, though.
Well done for remaining friends! My ex-husband and I are still good friends so I know where you're coming from. We thought about having a divorce reception since we'd eloped and never had a proper wedding reception but didn't think the families would take to the idea. ;D Dammit, we wanted presents!
Good luck to you.
Thank you. Luck is highly important in such things sometimes :)
You should have had a divorce reception!
