a real surf’s up kinda weekend

One of the warmest weekends there’s been this season, regardless of the fact that it’s technically autumn. “Indian summer”.

Was torn between the fact that we had gusets over, and that I had homework to do.
A mate of mine who I’ve known for a long time, who’s a cusper (on taurus and gemini) – who is nice but sometimes he grates on my nerves. Another mutual friend of ours once described him as being like george costanza, and this is a pretty apt description.
Anyway – I hadn’t seen him for a while, so it was good to catch up.

And, despite him knowing little about computers, he’d (in the last couple of months) met a woman over the net – chat rooms – and she was out here, and with him – on holiday.

when I initially heard about this I was rather sceptical, but not surprised. Infact several times I’d thought of suggesting to my taurus-buddy to get a computer and get on aol… due to the fact that he’s always whinging when he doesn’t have a girlfriend. But at the same time he’s got some rather unhealthy co-dependency issues – ie. relationships don’t tend to go well for him because of this — and then when they end, he falls in a heap.

But there is a lot of receptive people out there on the chat networks.

And despite the fact that he doesn’t even own a computer, he rapidly hooked up with this woman from Fargo, Nth. Dakota.
Being a realist(pessimist) – I expected there to be something drastically wrong with this woman – to have come out here after having only known our taurus-buddy for a couple of months + electronically.
However I was pleasantly surprised – she seemed quite nice. And I wonders how long it will be before she finds taurus-buddy more suffocating than Fargo winters…..

What a wonderful friend I am……

Pretty neat to be on an ISP that has unlimited download — have been hooking onto the GTK-Gnutella scene and schnaffling me some mp3s already. Forgot how slow it could get though.

Don’t worry bout it yak, you seem honest enough 🙂
I suffer from pessimism as well, but my girlfriend balances me out, thankfully; or i’d be a jaded phony all my life.
