"...seeing me so confused, she laughed again and she moved toward me with her whole body to offer me her lips." - Albert Camus, The Stranger

I became Internet pals with this lovely angel a pinch more than a year ago, and I was crushing hard from the beginning. During Whiskerino, I met her in person, in Philadelphia. Turns out, the whole crushing thing was mutual. (Or maybe the beard just pushed her over the edge.)

The interwebz make the 6,000 miles between Philly and Kona a tad more bearable. Since 11/01/09, she has been my greatest Whiskerino cheerleader. I hope to see her in Hawaii next month.

In other news, if you've been hearing rumors that certain beards are NOT stupid idiots, apparently CNN has something else to say about it. CLAME.

This picture is hilarious. I don't think it's strange at all to have LD relationships, what with things like Skype or whatever, so I'm not judging you. The picture itself is just really funny to me. I'd make her move to the islands.

Ozzy Nelson says:
i just emailed you. you stupid iditot.
Does this beautiful Philly girl not like to see you with beautiful hawiian girls? Is that the deal.
Here's the line, "listen Philly girl, I was just in the bank, and there were these girls, and I needed to take a photo for the day, and Ozzy Nelson was on my ass about being a big nerd and not wanting to talk to pretty girls in bikinis in banks, and I just had to show that stupid idiot how great I was"

Works every time. I promise

I just hope you two can work out the size difference between you. She seems so much bigger than you. Having a cheerleader is the best!

Just Jamey says:
You would be surprised how a so-called "LAP-top" could be such a pain in the butt to type on. I mean, it pretty much takes a whole hand per key, and even then, half the time I have to use my fists. This seems like a good idea at first, for the size and everything, but it's totally not worth it. Stick to the little computers. Maybe even a netbook.

awww, this is too sweet. long distance love can be grown and groomed, much like a good strong beard.

Be patient, be true; here hopes it works out for you!
