Your mom's all about hump day.

Today, I began gathering votes for the first T-shirt contest (which I organized) for my division. Three of the designs are wrangling for #1. And i also learned that Outlook's polling tracking functionality doesn't graph the results. LISTS OF RESULTS ARE JUST SO USEFUL.
Also, I had to work to get today's XKCD.

So.. I got this email from OkCupid....

Gotta run tonight. I'm thinking 5 miles or so on the Union-Picnic Point trail.

Last, I can't afford Bikilas this month and they just came in at Berkeley.
Sadness! #1stworldissues

And apparently my entire day is going to be dealing with Poll issues.
I learned today that IE8 cannot display illustrator files saved as JPGs.

WTF Microsoft?

That email is pretty amazing. There's going to be some pissed plus sizes in the universe very shortly.

I was quite surprised to get it and have seen no obvious change in my search results.

Also, what of all the hot chubby chasers? What ever shall they do?

No joke. Maybe there's a "cushion for the pushin'" options in your search criteria now?

How do you like OKcupid? I have an account from way way back in the day that I'm pretty sure was mostly Brooke wanting to fill out survey stuff. I don't know that I've ever used it.

Also Microsoft=t3h lamx04

You totally use OKC whenever I send you dirty messages.
nathan_lounge From: nathan_lounge Date: June 16th, 2010 03:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
Well yeah, but I was curious as to if it's useful for other reasons to collect pictures of you testing out your new nipple weights.
abmann From: abmann Date: June 16th, 2010 04:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
Um, I let you know if it's useful later? One person I met on there seems rather promising but wants to wait until she moves to Madison (likely this summer) to give it a go. I think.

Otherwise, I've had limited success which, I suspect, has more to do with being polyamorous than, say, my ugly face.

It's hard to say when you title your profile "Don't mind my ugliness, I'm on an exponential dating plan".

I guess I'll stick to the old fashion way, meeting people on Craigslist.

I'm a big fan of the CList Missed Connections and the radical volume difference between m4w and w4m.

Alas, no "tall hipster with one arm" posts to date.
nathan_lounge From: nathan_lounge Date: June 16th, 2010 04:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
You should post that in the M4WWWW section. I bet you'll hook up in no-time flat.

I really like reading through the whackiness in the casual encounters when I'm bored and it's 3am. When I get to heaven and get to ask my one question to God, it's going to be "Do people really hook up on Craigs list?"
abmann From: abmann Date: June 16th, 2010 04:17 pm (UTC) (Link)
Only murderers and scam artists. Though I did see this very tempting Venezuelan Princess looking for a casual hookup.

Word has it everyone gets that e-mail eventually, which makes sense because the people who put OkC together are pretty nifty and wouldn't do that kind of thing seriously. So really it's just to mess with everyone and make them feel good about themselves so they're more confident and therefore more successful daters. Or Something.

Will's still cute, though.

It's really just fake mustache.

Do try to have some fun whilst dealing with your poll issues.
abmann From: abmann Date: June 16th, 2010 04:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think I have it sorted now. The best design on there is in a close second with one of the sillier ones.
world_rim_walke From: world_rim_walke Date: June 16th, 2010 04:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
So you won't be dancing around it all day? Good.
abmann From: abmann Date: June 16th, 2010 04:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
Only three hours. :)

Still, a good work-out?
angels_ember From: angels_ember Date: June 16th, 2010 04:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
"WTF Microsoft" pretty well sums up some of my days. Good luck figuring it all out!

Also - how do you run in heat? I feel like I'm going to pass out just walking around outside when it's above 75; which is why I prefer my early morning schedule. But if I manage to stick with this whole running thing it'd be nice to do some social runs.

So is it just that you're far more awesome than me, or do you have any special tricks?

abmann From: abmann Date: June 16th, 2010 04:36 pm (UTC) (Link)
Heat doesn't really bug me that much. I will pre-hydrate like crazy, usually, before running in weather over 80 degrees. If it is especially hot and humid, I'll carry water or run near water fountains and Walgreens so I can stop as needed. I prefer the latter as running for a water bottle irritates me.

The more you run in heat, the easier it gets - conditioning. It also makes running in cooler temperatures that much easier and more fun.

Last, and more importantly, yeah.. I'm awesomer than you. :P

XKCD = awesome today.

Having had to try to get shit out of Outlook successfully, I can confidently say that I fucking hate that program. Stupid proprietary format bullshit, cock-biting- Anyway. Blasted Microsoft.

"Your mom's all about hump day."

Er....what?

Clearly you've never tried to install GCC on an AIX 4.x box...

That XKCD brought back rather clear memories for me.

So... feel any hotter recently? Are you getting it on with polyamorous models yet or what?

...I mean the ones aside from ladyfox.
