I wondered

how long it could last, this posting every day. It couldn't have been for too long, I guess. And the entries were getting shorter and shorter, less and less substantial. I was about to start writing today about applying for company health insurance and how it was that perfect bureaucratic combination of boring and confusing. (It still amazes me that something can be so intricately complicated, and stultifyingly dull at the same time.) But I decided the experience was insufficient fodder for a decent blog. I was drawing a blank.

I've never been a fan of bloggers talking about their own blogs all the time, and I didn't want to get into it myself, but hey, when I break a promise, it gets to me. And I had promised to post every day, at least to myself, at least for a while.

So I don't have much today, just a few item/fact/polls:

After a forty-eight hour voting period, open to the general public, I will tell either a) whether the 'guy' in the previous post was me, or b) whether the line actually worked. If no votes are cast, I will stop relaying weekend experiences to people who are obviously bored with such details, fall into a despondent funk, and drink the Kool-Aid.

I was filling my gas tank on Saturday, and the pump automatically turned off after I had put in $100 worth of gas. My tank was not full.

"The Good Shepherd" is a good movie-- but very violent, confusing, and intense. Also, I am pretty sure that my feelings for one of the characters (Laura) is as close as I have ever come to love. I don't know if any of you have seen this movie, and I can't really explain myself here. But she is just so beautiful that when I think about her, my heart hurts. I really wish she was real. I would quit my job and be a teacher, and we would live happily ever after in a small college town. The end.

I don't believe the guy in your post was you, and I do think there's a strong possibility that it worked. Seems plausible.

Sucks to fall in love with characters from movies, doesn't it. The only thing worse is when you find something similar in real life but it slips away from you.

Oh yeah, and health insurance just plain sucks.

Oh yeah, obviously I'm not Bob, but rather I forgot to sign out of his account. Whoops.

i disagree. i think the guy in the post is you and the line did work. and the world makes sense again...AND laura was a homewrecker. she may have been beautiful and there was the whole deaf thing but she still tempted Edward even when she knew he was married.
