Wishful thinking

I think I did put Derek off. I've not heard from him since yesterday morning, but I've seen him online so I know he got my one line message this afternoon: "Still up for tomorrow?" Oh well.

In slightly more interesting and amusing news, NPR's "All Things Considered" did a couple of pieces on online dating today. Check them out here and here.

Finally, a bit of bizarre from the profile of simplenough:

You should message me if:
you're a homosexual black Jewish pre-op transwoman with poor eyesight. Erm… I think I just realized why no one messages me. :/
What I'm doing with my life:
I plan on opening a business in the area of "software entertainment" ('tis a euphamism lolz). I hunger for power. Mine is an evil laugh.

The "mine is an evil laugh" is a reference to Firefly which makes him at least that interesting. On the other hand, though there may have been a time when being into Firefly was like an edgy, nerdy, something-most-other-people-don't-know-about thing, I think it's gone main stream now.

The advice to "choose a witty username" strikes me as possibly a little bit wrongheaded. From all the usernames you've posted, plenty of them are "witty" but that doesn't necessarily make them attractive.

Exactly—wit does not always work in a username. It does sometimes, though, so I guess it's not entirely bad advice.
