Uh oh.

Illuminata, I think Bleu is talking to Miles.

Oh, Miles has started beating the bush about meeting.

Hmmm. Does "beating the bush" mean something like "googling the python," but for the opposite sex?

I can't believe I just wrote that. Back to lecture-writing. Now.

Oops, I neglected to add "around" in that sentence. Not the same as googling the python.

Miles has pumped up the meeting volume. He is talking about coming within a few hours of ttville. I think he wants to meet yesterday.

Not a good sign.

I'd say this is a great sign. He's very anxious to meet you.

Clearly, the boy has taste.

Perhaps you people might date each other. That might be a solution. I met my wife at church and recommend that as a place to find serious people with good values.

OMG!!!

AHAStar visited us here at the LHC! I just can't believe it.
Wow!

But alas, he's not available.
I was so hopeful.

Merce, I've met plenty of men who are happy to play while the wife's at church.

No need to be snide! I didn't advocate one particular church. Even if you are an Episcopalian or Unitarian I would imagine that you have some sort of attitudes or opinions in common if not traditional values.  Meeting like minded people has its benefits.

Just got off the phone with Miles. <sigh>

I'll stick with the boy. He'll look 21 in a decade or so. If he doesn't mind going out with an old lady then ...

Or he's desperate and lonely.

He spent a bulk of the conversation trying to sell is city.

Me, move? Not happening.

If you wish to remain unskewered, I suggest that you depart quietly.

As per my sig line, I am getting condiments out of the fridge.

OH snap! You got the "I can't drive that far bc my workaholism will get in my way" speech? dangit.

[. . .]

Very common in the chum slick.  It translates one of two ways:

- I am not serious about dating.

- I am not interested in you.

I've met many quality women during conference and campus interviews.  They were all serious and seemed to have good values.

I love the word skewered.

I'm almost dressed for my 8:30AM class. This is my 4-class day and I'm exhausted. Hedgepig has got to get on a normal schedule. He called me 3 freaking times in the middle of the night to tell me he  loved me. On one hand, it was sweet and I was happy to hear it. On the other, I need my beauty rest.

He also sent me an email this morning at about 4:30Am. He wanted to know if I were up. If I were, we could get some eggs. I wasn't. I love him, I do, but that one's a headache.

I think we need a Chum-English Translation Dictionary.

I have to admit: I get SO excited whenever AHAStar comes out! I'm like a giggly schoolgirl right now.

You know, when you get down to it, there's not much difference between the dancings of angels and devils, is there? They both dance pretty wide, and swipe a lot of humans upside the head in their passing. The Fiona, AHAStar... it's all evidence of the mystical in the CHE fora. Of course, The Fiona bestows blessings. AHAStar is a bit more of a trickster. But it's all good. It's all attention from the gods.

I went to Geheim's concert, which was a lot of fun and great start to my resolution to get out more to campus and area events.

Ohmygoodness!!! WHY didn't you say hello afterward??!?!? Hope you liked it. For those who are wondering - it was an evening of Brahms (songs and piano pieces) ending with the Liebeslieder Waltzer, Op. 52. YUMMY!!!

The Liebeslieder songs were a lot of fun, and it struck me while I was watching that performers are taught how to flirt, which is something us more writerly types don't get to learn.

I decided to refrain from more public posting last night, else I reveal some rather intimate details that I should (probably) be keeping to myself.

That being said... you are saying dirtiness is good, I assume... :)
And also rambling while druggy.

Too bad lab and class will consume my life today.

He was also wickedly dirty last night and today. Not that things have been clean... they went into the gutter very early on...

I'm rambling.

I wonder if posting while drugged is ever a good idea.

Yes. Right now it is the best idea.  Please continue.

Skewers....doesn't Igor have a very pointy, exceptionally rusty set of those somewhere?

btw, ahastar (if you're still lurking about), in case you haven't noticed, there are 3 straight men who regularly post to the LHC, and two are taken. Unless we decided to be polygamous, which I'm sure is ok with spork, that leaves not so many options.

In stunning news, I think Bleu and I may have had The Talk. He noticed that my dating profile is gone (I didn't renew the subscription a while back) so he decided to hide his as well. Srsly weird. This is almost like a normal relationship.

Noof'd, ahem. Do I really need to remind you that you don't have to marry a boy just because you sleep with him? ; )
