Well, look at this, I blinked and two and a half months passed.
What really happened was, after all that whining about Internet dating, I met someone. Just at the moment of giving up I emailed a fellow because I liked his photo. He lives a long way away so I expected nothing to come of it, but I wanted to tell him he's gorgeous. Still tell him that a lot. Won't say much more on that score though, as it's early days and I don't want to disturb his privacy. I will say I can recommend only one Internet dating site for the UK: Guardian Soulmates. It has the best people, and it is a stellar example of a digital repository of metadata.
So- topics to come: long distance relationships (pros and cons); why redheads rock; and why are the NHS and health services around the world phasing out the safe, healthy and empowering cervical cap as a form of contraception? (If you want good info on cervical caps and diaphragms before I get the chance to post, go to: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DiaphragmsAndCaps/ )
In the meantime, here's a little snippet for you: a new telly program on in the USA called: The Librarian: Quest for the Spear. And the star is sexy Noah Wyle from ER!
As THE LIBRARIAN: QUEST FOR THE SPEAR opens, brilliant 30-year-old student Flynn Carsen (Noah Wyle) is kicked out of school by his professor because he believes Carsen, after earning 22 degrees, lacks life experience and thinks it would be a disservice to him to continue on. While Carsen's mother, Margie (Olympia Dukakis), is haranguing him about finding love and setting him up on blind dates, Carsen receives a mysterious invitation to interview for a job at the Metropolitan Public Library. After a bizarre but successful interview, Charlene (Jane Curtin) and library head Judson (Bob Newhart) reveal to Carsen the true nature of his job, a secret job that has been around for centuries. He is charged with protecting the greatest treasures of history, which are being kept in a secret section of the building. Among the treasures housed in the library are the Ark of the Covenant, the Mona Lisa (the one in the Louvre being a replica), Pandora's Box and Excalibur, to name a few.
OK, that'll do. Looks like Typepad have updated their interface so I want to see how this looks.
Happy Solstice and all those other holiday type things everyone (esp. Hogmanay).
