self portrait (escher)

'llo again.

Has it been that long? Sorry.

No substance tonight, because I do have to sleep, but here's a random bit of conversation that stuck with me long enough to hit the keyboard:

    friend:
          I figured out the problem with dating sites.

    self:
          Is there a solution?

    friend:
          No. Because the problem is this: The people you find on dating sites, who are willing to pay money for the chance to meet each other? They're not people that you (or by extention, they) want to meet.

    self:
          Can't be much worse than the bar scene.

    friend:
          Alcoholics. Good point.

    self:
          Or meeting people through a church group.

    friend:
          Religious freaks, yeah.

    self:
          Or, y'know, leaving the house.

    friend:
          ...     Don't be bitter with the world!

    self:
          World's got it comin'.
Well, maybe not. But the world can take it.


And an (unrelated) observation:
    Offering Karaoke in a public restaurant is like hiring a gang of chain-smoking mimes to accost your customers during their meal. Sure, some people might enjoy it, but why would you do that to everyone else?

    More importantly, why do we put up with it?


In other news, FL Studio is every bit as much fun as I remember, and it does control GPO without any problems.
