Kevin Talking

Nice Guys Finish Last?

So, here goes a toe in the "adult concepts" filter here on LJ. I reckon some of you who have left the new defaults in place will see this behind a cut tag, if you see it at all.

I had to collect a package from the post office yesterday. While standing in the long queue reading a book, I overheard the two women behind me, who were talking loudly about a friend's love life. I paraphrase slightly, but the gist of the conversation was, "She went out with this guy a couple of times, but he never tried to have sex with her. He must be gay." Her friend agreed.

What an interesting concept: a guy who acts like a gentlemen and doesn't immediately put the moves on a woman is obviously gay? And, as Cheryl pointed out to me when I remarked on this overhead conversation, if he was gay, why did he go out on the date with the woman in question in the first place?

I Should Have Been Asleep Two Hours Ago...

...but we had a little excitement around here, as did probably a bunch of other people using the affected add-in. Once that was resolved, it was time to pack for the trip to Boston tomorrow, Cheryl and I are on different flights (me on USAir using frequent-flier points inherited from America West, Cheryl on United), and my flight is first -- 7:20 AM -- which means we need to be out of here by 5 AM tomorrow, which means getting up at 4 AM. Ugh. Cheryl leaves something like 90 minutes or so after me, but because she's going direct while I get to go via Charlotte, she'll arrive before me.

I'm not expecting to be back online again until I get to Boston late Thursday night.
