My Type

So, while taking a friend and his girlfriend to work, she says to me, “you seem like a nice guy, want me to hook you up with any of my friends?”  With a follow up questions of, “what exactly is your type?”

I have not been asked this question in a very long time, and, to be honest, “my type” has changed a lot since I was last asked that question.  My answer used to immediately start off with

  • Size 10 or smaller
  • Attractive to me
  • Finds me attractive
  • Smart & Intelligent
  • Enjoys technology, but does not have to be a gadget junkie
  • A football fan, being a Falcons fan gets you a lot more points
  • Bring to the table at least what I bring to the table
  • Enjoys some of the same movies, TV shows, music and books, that I do.  Not all, but some
  • A family oriented woman.  At least be open to the idea of having a family
  • A woman who believes in a higher power.  I’m not the biggest church goer, so I can’t in good faith say she must be.  But if she is a church going woman, I have no problem getting up and going with her.

There are some other things on the list, but these are the only ones I think I’ll mention here.  Over time, my requirements have changed, as I think they should as a person grows.  The above list is a general guideline and not a hard line.  If the woman I meet does  meet some of the list above, that does not mean she is disqualified, but just means that we will see how well she and I can mesh together.

This list does not really seem like a lot to me, and I’m sure if you and I were to actually talk about this list, and have a real conversation, you would see some more insight in to me.  Oh well, until Mrs. Jenkins comes along, I have no issue with friends trying to fix me up with their cute female friends.  🙂


Things I Need

So for lunch today, my office wife and I went to Moe’s.  The Moe’s over here near the office is the best one I have ever been to.  It’s kind of gloomy out, but not raining so we decided to walk.  While on the way out I say something about needing a new coat since the one I have on today is at least 6 years old.

She needs to get something out of her truck, so we detour to the parking garage, where I say, “One day I’ll get a new truck.”  She replies with,  “along with your new house, new coat, and new girlfriend.”  We both get a good laugh and head on to lunch.

So here is the list of  new things that I need.

New truck
New coat
New house
New girlfriend

Some of that list is easier obtained than others.  Who wants to volunteer to assist.  🙂

Too Many Outlets

Earlier today, I saw a friends post on Twitter, and it contained a link to their Tumblr page.  This got me to thinking, and, there are far too many social networking sites out there.  It’s hard enough keeping up with Facebook and Twitter, but there are also Tumblr, Blogger, and a host of other smaller sites still trying to compete for page views.

It just makes me remember that I have neglected my own WebLog for far too long, and that I need to bring all of that stuff back home to a site that I manage, and have it stored in a database that I own and control.  Since this will feed into other places that people read, it will be seen by those who are supposed to see it.

Event Blogger

So it’s been some time since I have written anything in here, and I know why.  I think I have become an event blogger.  A term coined by my THW.  I only write when something happens.  I need to, and I also want to put more effort into posting on a more frequent bassis.

While I am not the greatest writer in the world, I do enjoy putting my thoughts onto hard drives and other magnetic media.  It’s a good kind of therapy that I need, and I’m sure a lot of us need, but we don’t.

So here is the 1st entry, in what should be a somewhat steady flow of entries about my life, and the things that happen on a semi regular basis, and not just the major life changing events.
