The Autobiography of Russell
Life from a different perspective
Life's Little Oddities (multi-subject post)
Regarding my second to last post ("poll"): I'm rather disappointed in the responses. Nearly everyone freaked out; No one was pleasantly surprised. I feel the love here...

Regarding the last post: Yes, I feel horrible now. I realize I could have really screwed up the guys life if he is gay and wasn't out. I also realize he could very well be jail bait (He's in high school right now, although I would assume a senior). That aside, I'll just have to find better excuses to say "Hi" or see if the girl in my College Algebra class can introduce us (She goes to school with him apparently).

You know what attracts me about him? He seems very quiet, shy, reserved, and I like that. Mmm... Yeah... Those always take a while to open up, if they ever do.

Life's Little Oddities: Why is it that alcohol has to be at every social function and if you don't drink you're anathematized by everyone that does? I have yet to meet anyone who didn't think less of me for not wanting to drink. I also have yet to meet anyone who knows how to socialize or even just hang out without alcohol involved. Except the exes. They wouldn't have made it to first base (What is that supposed to mean anyway?) if they had.

Re: the poll -- I'm not sure anyone showing up unexpectedly at my door would have a different reaction. Everyone would be greeted with a smile and invited in, of course, unless it were the middle of the night.

Life in South paris, Maine is quieter, with fewer surprises. Dropping in on Haven House would have been much more open, even to "strays."

If I ever showed up on anyone's door it would be a really big burst of sponantiousness. I suppose if I ever get around to doing something like that I'll be making road trip plans and asking people ahead of time when would be a good time to show up out of thin air.

I've been giving that a lot of thought lately -- A road trip to meet people I know online. =)

Sounds like fun to me!

First step: Get funding.
Second step: Get vehicle.
Third step... we'll get to that after the first two.

Re: Cute boy, eh, I think you're worried about nothing. I'd chat him up anyway, but I'm fairly ballsy when I want to be.

heh, one thing to note is why I'm attracted to that kind of guy; I am very much like that myself (quiet, shy, and reserved). It takes a lot to give me the guts to talk to anyone I think is cute. ^^

One step at a time.

Alcohol is a "social lubricant". Some people need that lubrication while others don't.

Alcohol helps me forget about whats on my mind and just relax and enjoy myself. Actually, it helps me forget just about everything, from the name of the guy I'm talking to, to the number of drinks that I've had :)

And personally, nobody should think less of you because you don't drink or do other drugs. I only drank under-age once or twice, and I had many opportunities. None of my friends in HS were partiers though, so that may explain it. We were likely to hang out all night and drink too much caffiene while playing D&D though :)

Quiet, shy, and reserved is good. I'm usually attracted to the cute, quiet boys myself. They are always much more approachable too, because while they feel uncomfortable making a first move at a conversation, they will fall right into one if you start talking to them.

Oh, last thing, where I come from, "first base" is a kiss.

I recently heard of alcohol described that way while watching Just Like Heaven. It's... interesting to think people need it.

Your description of what alcohol does reminds me why I don't want to ever drink any... I don't think I could stand forgetting anything, much less losing any of my faculties. Who knows what I might do if I were drunk; personally I'd rather not wake up in the county jail cell to find out I murdered someone.

Put two quiet, shy, and reserved guys together and you get a lot of crickets chirping (Assuming neither one can get the guts to start a conversation). You do have a point, though, that if you actually engage a quiet, shy, and reserved person in a conversation they're interested in then you may get more than you bargained for. heh I know I give more than the other person wants to hear if the subject ever touches computers or programming. :-P

So first base is a kiss... so what is just seeing if the guy is available or interested? heh
