cue alanis

How's this for ironic: remember me mentioning that a friend's ex-girlfriend decided he'd been having an affair with me for at least a year? And his other ex was convinced I was a redhead who had been "scamming on him" for months? Well, because of all that drama they caused, we ended up talking a lot more over the past few months...

...and now we are dating.

Seriously, it never would have happened if all that other drama hadn't come up. He had broken up with his girlfriend and had a redhead he was interested in, I had broken up with Brian and wasn't interested in dating at all. We were friends, sometime coffee buddies, and fellow commiserators who bitched about the world to each other...when the accusations first started flying, we rolled our eyes and scoffed. "Pfft! No offense, but just aren't on my radar." Then the drama continued, and escalated, and we talked more, and slowly it became "hmmm...*would* I date this person? I mean, they are cool and we get along, but would I really go out with them?" Eventually we figured what the heck, it was worth a shot...what's the worst that could happen, right??

So weird how things work out...never would have guessed this one in a million years. See, I told you: life can surprise you.

physics in action

Rain => wet sidewalks

Wet sidewalks => wet shoes

Wet shoes + tile floor + rounding corner too fast = KERTHUMP

Stacey + KERTHUMP = blushing + cursing + bruising + pain

[But on the plus side, I can empirically state that gravity is still in effect, at least in the local area.]

02/23/2009 UPDATE: the bruise on my leg is lovely...very dark purple, about 4" around. Apparently I banged my head, because there is a tender spot on my scalp and my left eye has a faint bruise under it. Ankle and knee are doing better; there is a sharp pain in my left upper arm when I put pressure on my elbow, so I'm keeping an eye on that one.

Needless to say, I am very, very respectful of tile floors now... >.<

Apparently Ashton Kutcher is going to be hanging here at Facebook this afternoon, to help us celebrate our 5th birthday.

UPDATE: Ah's why: he's got a new series coming out, and it will be distributed through a Facebook app. Capitalism and self-promotion FTW...

Just heard that my uncle Gerald died this morning. Sending love and thoughts to my aunt Christine and the rest of the you.
