Spuds and Carrots working for better relationships

Attack of the exploding sewage truck

Austrian gameshow bungle

Shakespeare, the herbalist

Ahhh, nice. Went up to Lansing to give P some company and care while she's under the weather, and to go to Nyte's Thai get-together. That was rather fun, swapping g33k stories and touting my spice-tempered tongue (thanks to Tio's in A2 and a fiancee who grew up on Indian food). Everyone but Skippy I had met before, but it was cool to talk to them outside of a club atmosphere. Afterwards, we skated to the library, got some cold-fighting supplies, and went back. Amazing, you don't have to constantly go out on elaborate dates and throw money around to have a good time. I do sometimes feel a little chintzy for not doing such things, but I think overall I'm exceeding "maintenance requirements". Hell, I don't think there _are_ requirements any more, but that's no reason to let up. My parents basically became roommates that screw once they got married, I don't want the same to happen to us.
Doing things right is a lot harder than I thought it would be, and that's saying a lot. It's amazing to me just how much people are expected to put up with in relationships, how abysmal the average one is. I do my best to keep things above that lousy standard, I hope I do a decent job. I know I'm not the knight in shining armor I'd like to be, but it's pretty complicated to orchestrate that kind of perfection. Sometimes I worry too much, I think, and half of the time that's my downfall. However, my faith is definitely starting to improve, and that belief that it's going to work this time is getting stronger.

You seem to be doing well. I think the realization that this problem occurs solves it about 90%. Too many people take the special people in their life for granted (friends, lovers, teachers, etc.).

At least that's my opinion.

I think you epitomize what I was talking about earlier perfectly Kevin. I wish there were more guys like you out there. I think there would be a lot less heartache in the world if everyone had that attitude towards relationships. Good job.

Oi.

It was good to meet you.

I'm glad that someone else tries to be what you're trying to be... I was starting to lose... faith.... in it.

Same here, Captain.

Sometimes it's like being one man with a box of bandaids running around a whole nation of guys with chainguns.
