Aside

Taking blogging requests…

Just finished sifting through all the latest news in my inbox today, and… I got nothing. I go through phases like this now and then, where I just want to ignore all of creation for a while and game until I pass out from the lack of blood circulation. But just to try to prove I’m not totally a foaming misanthrope who bites people’s faces every time he’s in a mood, I welcome any new blogging suggestions. Any particular topics readers here would like me to blog about? Go on, tell me. You’re in a safe place here.

    You could always compare the attractions of dating never married moms with dating divorced by their choice moms…

    You might want to step back once you light the blue touchpaper though.

    You can thank me later, if you survive.

      Heh, that’s the kinda thing where the cost-benefit analysis should be painfully obvious to anyone with more than two active brain cells.

      I thought that there might be mileage in the comparison…dangerous ones, filled with ambush by hostiles, rockslides, road washout etc. While the result is the same (for me too), the reasoning to get there could vary.

    Okay, can I have another go?

    Do you see an age at which you will stop looking for a wife at all?

    To me, if the only reason for marriage is to have kids*, then once the age group of women that you feel are acceptable / respectable being with approaches (say, at the very latest) late thirties, will you give up? Will you just GYOW, just leaving the door ajar if someone suitable finds you?

    (* I don’t do religion, so YMMV and that’s fine, in fact that could be a subject in itself)

    • Frank Swift August 7, 2013 at 1:07 PM #

      I believe in striking a balance between hardcore GYOW and kicking over every rock you come across to find… THE ONE. Or in other words, to live your life as you please, and if you happen to meet someone along the way, great, but if not, at least you didn’t make the mistake of putting your life on hold waiting or searching for a good wife.

      Being in my thirties, I don’t think I gave up really, I just gave up obsessing over it. Too much of it is simply beyond my control anyway. This is definitely something I may expound on more in a future post, so thanks for the idea tip.

    Another burning question; (I’m short) do Stetsons look dumb on short guys? would it be a fashion faux-pas?

    FYI I have no interest in stove pipe hats like Abe Lincoln’s (just thought I’d clear that up).

      I don’t think height matters so much for the look. I don’t know how to explain it, but for years no matter what hat I put on I always looked like a dweeb. Nothing ever seemed to fit or look right until I found a Stetson in Yellowstone that was PERFECT. Even my friends/coworkers say I was born to wear this hat. Go figure. Now I just need to find a decent jacket to go with the hat…

    I haz a sad.

      LOlcatz have ruined the Internet I say. Ruined. RUINED!

    You bought a Stetson? I don’t know we would have let you in the Rockies if we knew you were going to do that. Now you’re what we call a drugstore cowboy. But if you’re going to get coat, get a Carhartt or one of the nice ones at Sheplers.com.

    • Frank Swift August 8, 2013 at 12:14 PM #

      I’ve already been to the Rockies four times with my Stetson, and the chicks dig it. But then again, I’m gorgeous, so it’s really no surprise. *checks hat and hair in mirror*

      Besides, I prefer to think of myself as a Raylan Givens Cowboy than a drugstore one. B-)

    good day, I just stopped in for a visit. cute sight.. I didn’t know you were a geek. I think you are a very funny, sensible, usable, kind Geek, if you are a geek.

      Thanks Lois, funny you stopped in now, my next post is going to discuss my fall trip where I’ll meet with Jennifer’s kennel of dogs in Durango, including Bonnie Lee. :-)
