I've had a weird couple of IM contacts lately.
The first one has a lot to do with hats, which I don't really understand, but oh well. I say old bean, have you seen my hat?
Turns out this is a weird bot, identified as The Hatmaster. It hooks you up at random with another AIM user.http://tesseractivity.livejournal.com/6157.html
Weird, but kinda fun.
The second is a woman who caught my profile on Yahoo! personals. I thought I had disabled that profile, but apparently I did not.
So she's older than me by a couple of years. Widowed. A grandmother. Christian. Think Lutheran church lady with the hot dish. About as far opposite my "type" as you can get, and I'm not exactly church bazaar fodder. I tried explaining that I make dead people and that my spiritual beliefs are not exactly in line with church theology. I watch David Lynch films and enjoy it.
So I was trying to explain to her that I'm not dating right now as a choice, since I am not feeling particularly "datey" right now.
And I got chewed out for not giving her a chance
Look, I would date if I found someone both interesting and interested who wasn't living thousands of miles away, and was willing to be patient and understanding. And right now I am not interested in sharing my more intimate moments with anyone outside of an emotionally stable stripper with a thing for bad horror movies and hot tubs. Chewing me out don't win you no brownie points, gig? It just makes you seem desperate, and desperation I don't need.
On the other hand, I made Barb cry. Because I rememebred her birthday and got her something.
Egg-layin' bunny on a crutch.
