The Science of Dating.

Normally I bring you amusement from OKCupid. But today we have a different kind of amusement from PlentyofFish.

Most of the mail I get there amounts to, "Hi, how are you?" Which is a waste of my time and theirs, really. No effort, no reply. There's effort in this one, but I'm not sure if it's the right kind...

I would like to know if you would like to chat sometime? and as far as science? do you know who Nikola Tesla is?

I... Um... What?

I don't mention science in my profile. Why would I? I like it just fine, but it plays no role in my dating life. I even checked to make sure I didn't type "political science," and he just missed the first half,

Honestly...who does this? Did he ask me about Tesla because he plans to electrocute me? Was it a roundabout way to tell me he has a secret love of 80s hair metal bands?

This is almost more strange to me than the sexual crap I get sent. Is that wrong?

  2. Hi Heather & Ama,
    I found your hilarious blog through the follower swap at Swap-bot. I laughed through every post last night as I perused your blog.

    Because of your general awesomeness I decided to award you The Beautiful Blogger Award. I wrote a post haralding your wonderfulness to the world, you can pick up your award and read my post about you at

    I also threw together a blog button for your site. If you like it I'd be happy to send the code for putting it in your sidebar, allowing all your avid readers to grab it and display it on their blog. (if that makes sense, lol). I look forward to hearing from you.
