Happy Geek Pride Day

Geek Pride DayI think I celebrated my geek pride day well, by awkwardly talking to an attractive woman today. I stuttered, stammered, and she was being nice, allowing me to be a big dork. As a result, I can tell, I was getting nowhere. Oh well, I know I can make her laugh at least. Update: Well, I found out she has no interest. I guess we can always be friends? Haha.

So this brings up a good point. When do you know enough is enough? How do you handle rejection? I for one, admittedly, am still struggling with that idea. Not that I think I’m irresistible, but she does send me mixed signals. Not my problem though, but in a sense its rejection. An emphasis on how women have power.

You need to look at every woman or man that rejects you in some way as a stepping stone. Maybe its a lesson on what to do and what not to do. Either way, you have to take it for what it is and move on. Some people may say not to dwell on it, but I believe you have to (but not forever). You need to learn from your encounters and correct mistakes. No matter why you’re flirting or what you’re interested in, whether it be for a one night stand or a long lasting relationship, you have to look at your flawed tactics and improve on them.

Please note! A smile, a laugh, a touch means nothing unless they say it means something! People, for the most part are polite, and women are subtle and beat around the bust to a fault, and men need it spelled out. We men cannot speak your language! *sigh* I need a drink…too bad I hate alcohol…

I appreciate a little more what women go through.

Okay, so I got my first manicure ever, and I have to say, I kind of like it. Shiny nails and clean looking fingers are pretty good. Now…I did chat with a woman beside me and asked her how often she got her nails done and filled. Every two weeks? That’s incredible. A guy takes five minutes in the shower, and they’re done and gone. A woman has to make sure they’re shaved well in all the right places, that their eyebrows are even, their hair shampooed and straightened or styled. All I can say is wow, I have so much respect for women and all you have to go through to look pretty for us men.

Waxing? I’ll pass. Plucking? No thank you. Landscaping? Well, men do have manscaping, but anyway. Of course, when I got my manicure, it wasn’t a painful experience. A nice hand and arm massage, and the feeling of being pampered, I can dig it. I don’t know if I’d do it regularly, but I’d do it again.

To ALL the women out there, I have to give you all a gigantic thank you. I’d never trade my five minutes to look decent to the hours you all do to look as perfect as possible. So in conclusion? I think most women I find attractive, are natural beauties and don’t need to do any of this stuff. But if you don’t want to, I’m not going to fight it.

An official rant on PDA (Public Displays of Affection)

The other day, I was minding my own business, making my way to a Java Programming Final (big mistake taking that class), and I was observing all the people around me. Its a warm day, I’m sweating as I normally do, but I notice something out of the ordinary. All around me, fairly attractive to very attractive people are lip locked, either blatantly unaware or unashamedly aware. It was like a punch to the head, because I have never seen so many people kissing and entwined all at the same time.

To my left and right, people are appreciating their relationships openly, and it made me think back at my own relationships. I was very aware of the affection I gave and received, and I couldn’t, for the life of me, bring myself to do what these people were doing. Kissing so openly, holding each other so intimately. Its like Cupid threw a grenade, and love shrapnel was hitting people everywhere.

Is it just me? Is this the Spring of love? Am I making a big deal out of it? I mean, I kind of liked watching these people. It was like Improv Everywhere was punking me in some way. I don’t know why they would do that, but you never know with those guys. So in conclusion? Every day that passes I notice more and more “new” couples. I have to assume they’re new couples because…why else would they be so lovey dovey, touchy feely?

Heh, I think I like this set up better

Well, I guess you get what you pay for with free web site management and all. I think I may move here, because I like how it looks, and I like the power I have over making it look pretty decent. Anyway, so from here on out, this will be the place to go for my podcasts, my blog…I guess this is my blog….and anything else I happen to find interesting in some way shape or form.

So, I’m going to transfer my content and pretend that the other site never existed. Starting with my Microbiology video. Haha. Remember, that video is about Bacteria Making Sustainable Bricks. Is there nothing those prokaryotic microorganisms, can’t do?
