There are a lot of reasons that I am getting a little worried about my ever present single status. Not the least of which:
And all those things listing the reasons why its good to be single? Not very helpful. I think the only thing that calms me down is thinking that I could devote my life to God and live a celibate life of contemplation and prayer, but socially, that doesn't really have a lot of appeal.
It's messed up, really. It is not focusing on the positive, at any rate. "Not single" has never been a goal that I wanted to pursue devoid of any higher purpose. I mean, after all, the reason why I want to date and get married and all that jazz is because I enjoy being with people and I want to find someone so special that we can be a team for the rest of our lives. It's the only best friend forever that you'll ever have. That's when Valentine's day is fun. That's when going to the movies and getting popcorn and holding hands, that's when its fun. Otherwise, its just hanging out with some bore and wishing you were anywhere else. And neither you nor the bore want that.
Still, you start to feel a little vain and stuck up. You don't click with a guy, you say "no" and its like "What, do you think you're too good for me?" And the truth is... no (well, not until you said that;) ) No, seriously. It's like that old game memory. You have an orange cat and a black and white cat and no matter how cat-like they both are, they just aren't a match. You have to keep flipping over the tiles until you find two that are the same. It's just hard to prove when you haven't found your orange cat.
...not that I want a cat... ever.
Princess of Mars
Wednesday. 3.20.13 12:16 pm
I've been reading Princess of Mars. It's a GREAT book! It's one of those books that you want to finish so that you can read it all over again. Sometimes you've got to love novelist suggestions... Anyway, so John Carter, 6 foot whatever, majorly handsome, spends the first fifty pages trying to find some decent clothes... Has this beautiful thing to say about love:
"So this was love! I had escaped it for all the years I had roamed the five continents and their encircling seas; in spite of the beautiful women and urging opportunity; in spire of half-desire for love and a constant search for my ideal, it has remained for me to fall furiously and hopelessly in love with a creature from another world.." (Burroughs, 99)

".... but on a mac"
Monday. 3.18.13 1:06 pm
I have to admit, the switch over to Mac was initially not very hard. I mean, I hated working with macs in graphic design school, but then I started to love/them and then I started to love them. The thing is, now all my Google queries are like this: "How to I (insert PC thing) on a mac". Like, "What is MS Paint... on a mac" or "What is notepad... on a mac"
Because, Mac, they have 'notepad' and 'paint', but they don't let you use and abuse the programs quite in the same way. Mac thinks that notepad is actually for taking notes! Hahaha. On your computer! AHAHAHA, what a laugh! Sticky notes, on your computer! Why would anyone want to do that? When they can WRITE HTML CODE AND SAVE IT AS A DIFFERENT FILE TYPE! Or use it to strip all the text formatting or use it to write JAVA or CSS or write a printable grocery list without having to load up word, or when you want to write something really small and squish it into the bottom corner of your screen so you can read it while you monkey around on the internet.
Then, MS Paint... probably the most useful program in the world. Oh? You want to steal that photo you saw on that one website, but when you right click on it, it yells at you? Screen capture -> import into paint! What? You are too lazy to wait for photoshop to load but you want to crop that dinky photo of yours -> MS PAINT! Still, there are ways... there must be ways.

I'm so freaking ready to have a dog, again. Ready in all ways except financial, that is. Spensive computer and vacays aside, I simply don't have the salary for regular room and board. That's not a secret, it's just the way it is. So, I'm doing what anybody does, looking for more income streams. My point is it can't come soon enough. Let's just face it, I'm not just a dog person. I'm a Dog Person. If I were to have a familiar, it would be a dog. If I were to have a familiar in the Golden Compass universe where the animal represents an aspect of your soul? It would still be a dog. It would be a white german shepherd. It's like walking around with your arm cut off, and I know people can live just fine like that, but that doesn't mean that, if they were able to earn enough money and get a nice backyard in order to get their arm back, they wouldn't! *Sigh* I am whining, I get it, but look at this face:
Dogs on Facebook
Friday. 3.15.13 10:40 am
Sometimes, I think subscribing to dog rescue groups is fun, but every once in a while, it's like torture. There was a posting today about a dog's "last will and testament", I skimmed it, but it didn't take long before I started thinking about my own dead dog and it made me quite sad. You can see why people say that it is your "loss". I think in many ways, things that have died act in our day to day functionality as things that have been lost, but (and I know it is patently obvious) lost things have a distinct benefit over dead things. You see, when things are lost, you have a hope of turning around a corner and saying, "Oh my, that's where I left you." But my old dog was not lost, she was never lost, because whenever I wanted to find her, I would just call her name and she would be there. I miss that dog.
