I laugh in the face at whatever psychic it was that predicted I'll eventually get married. I am way too much trouble for that.

Seriously, I need to stop browsing OKStupid. It's making me feel irrationally doomed about my place in the area of love. I *am* actually worth responding to and not totally repulsive, right? I'll just keep doing that exercise where I repeat awesome things about myself in my head and believe them.
It doesn't help that I'm really, really thoroughly uncomfortable with trying to fit into the 'male' perspective of dating. I'm much more comfortable being one of those attracting attention rather than attempting to take part in the competition for those women who probably get lopsidedly contacted way more. And I dunno - my messages I've sent and that were ignored were heavily focused on engaging in music dork/humorous misfit talk, and I'm having a really hard time figuring out where I failed in trying to come off as an interesting person in general with them. At this point I would just love any kind of response!

It feels so much like a job search or an overcrowded party where breaking the ice with anyone is really hard and you want to leave, yet you're staying in the event something interesting might happen. You could also add taking a test in school where everyone is scrutinizing your answers - I'm starting to think that if the site existed back when my parents were dating and they met that way, I wouldn't exist right now, either!

ME: Someone needs to volunteer to be the "tall guy" Mike Rutherford so we can do the "I Can't Dance" dance through Sam's Club. I don't know which one of us would be Tony Banks or Phil Collins, though.

CASEY: I guess I'll be Tony Banks since you might possibly look more like Phil... hard to tell. I'll think of a few ideas for Mike Rutherford though.

ME: Yeah, I think watching this video again I could totally see my 20 years older Dan The Serious Businessman character not far off from Phil Collins. Getting rejected by a woman in favor of an iguana is also something that would totally happen to Dan, heh. 53 years old and still single without a mate! But yeah, it's a shamme I'm not close to 6'3” like Mike – in reality I'm probably more like him than any other Genesis member, with the possible exception of Steve Hackett.

I wonder what it means when somebody I've only ever really met/thought of as a casual acquaintance a few times and haven't run into in nearly a year practically ends up in love with me in a dream. I don't think I've even interacted with this person on Facebook in any way at all since friending them, not even with 'likes' or comments between us. That's pretty much in line with my romantic encounters in dreams. The 'lurkers' always get to me.

As much as I like her as a character, Amy's "interactions" with Penny on Big Bang Theory are becoming really downright painful to watch.

I should have been watching the Grammys if only for inspiration for my Dan The Serious Businessman record company executive character. He was too busy with his "C minor drama research project". Were any C minor songs nominated for anything?

Who is Bon Iver? If 1986-1992 Peter Gabriel woke up one morning and said, 'You know what would sound *really* awesome? If I sang in falsetto 90% of the time!'"

Oh, right... Adele. I'm currently imagining the result of "Rolling In The Deep" mating with "21st Century Schizoid Man" and "No One Knows" because I'm a dork.

Def Leppard's Hysteria is one of the most ridiculous albums ever made, like the musical equivalent of Mountain Dew. I love it.
The thing that sucks most about the internet age: opinions that either don't agree with at all or are expressed in a hilariously overdramatic, ignorant way can still be found online under my name instead of in notebooks or in the trash. Maybe I really should start posting under alter ego names. Words like "incredibly", "extremely", "absolutely", etc. should have been highlighted in red every time I used them so they didn't *completely* lose their significance. Ugh.
