I feel like such a n3rd.. Today, waiting for the light rail to come sweep me away to work, I'm sitting there on my bike (I try to avoid riding the entire distance in the morning as I don't want to arrive to work overly sweaty or bug-covered) listening to some music and reading a book. The music: Tool. The book: Meditations on the First Philosophy. What a combo. :)

Speaking of the Meditations, I was standing outside class last week waiting for the teacher to come out (I got hung up in a work project and so missed the lecture) and one of the ladys in the class walked by and asked "what are ya readin?" I said "Meditations on the First Philosophy" and she, not having stopped walking one bit, said "cool. Descartes, right?" I, of course, confirmed and she wished me a good day and went on her way.

Speaking of the ladies in my classes, I have only one word to say (though you know I'll say a lot more): WOW!!! they are HAWT! Not necessarilly the pinnacle of what is commonly considered to be physicaly attractive (though one most certainly does fit that standard) but they have great personalities and wonderful minds. This one in particular who knew Descarts off the top of her head has a great sense of humour and a terrific laugh and smile. Sometimes her and I will make faces at eachother across the room during lecture.. Yes, we're *so* mature in the master's program here.. hehe...

It can be distracting, though, trying to focus on the topic of discussion when there are so many (well, okay, 3, but that's a lot for an upper level math course!) beautiful ladies (and, I must admit, 2 of the guys are quite attractive as well (purely straight, though -- bummer)) in the same room.

that, and there seems to be some rule I was unaware of that says "never date a math major". no, seriously. I was talking with some of the female math majors a few years back (why are they all so damn attractive?!) and they were talking about dating habits and how they had both swore they would never date a math major. One because she had tried twice before and both had been horrible experiances.. and the other because she had heard enough horror stories that she's just not going to risk it. I want to know who the hell were these bad experiances and give them a sound pummelling, they're ruining it for the rest of us!

On the other hand, there are quite a few ladies who claim they'll never date a Capricorn, so I guess I'm just doubly out of luck.

Oh well, time to get dressed (well, okay, put on a shirt (I was a little warm and my office is muggy, so I took off the shirt I rode here in)) and get my workday started.. At least this time I remembered to bring the MtnDew with me!

Oh, and I have begun tossing some random piccies up on DevArt, for those who care (though I doubt that's many).

Dig the new icon.

My first GF was a math major. She was hot hot hot. I think I was better in math than she was though.

Gee, sunshine, I was not aware that you were available to date other women regardless. An outsider reading this would assume you didn't have a girlfriend at all. Thanks.

ya know, I had a feeling you'd react like this. I tried having some faith in you, telling my synical side to stfu. Thanks for proving me wrong.

people wonder why I don't post personal thoughts and feelings here, then when I do they bitch at me about what I posted.

And you thought I wouldn't mind reading about your thoughts on why "hawt" women don't want to date you because...?

i dont like replying to journals that arnt my friends, but....

you have to admit it is a bit rude to write about all these hot girls and not your girlfriend... it does sound a bit like you take her for granted...

also, if you thought she would take offence to this, why did you put it there in the first place? there are filters that you can use to keep certain people from reading entries, there is also an option to make the entry private, for your eyes only.

end of lecture. love, jessi

no, scratch that. this is an issue that I've had to go over enough times, I'll just make a nice big announcement about it in a seperate post.

here's a short-version preview for you:

no, scratch that also -- too bitchy.

Suffice to say that I feel you have grossly misinterpreted my words, and I feel your insults about my charcter and your claim about my relationship with her are wildly inaccurate. Further, I feel your suggestion that I alter my use of LiveJournal to suit yours (or anyone else's) feelings is unreasonable.

i freely admit that i am not entirely "in the know" about your relationship, i just know that this hurt my friends feelings very much, and maybe its silly but i felt the need to "defend her honor," as it were. i apologize if you offended by my comment, but i felt i needed to defend my friend.

I find it simply amazing, the double standard in the way people judge me and her.

Some questions for you to consider:

1) Why is it so bad that I actually find people other than my significant other attractive?

2) Why is it okay for her to make statements like this but it is not okay for me to do so?

Or, what, you didn't know she spoke like this to me? You mean you've never heard about how she will go on and on about how attractive a particular guy she knows is (at the same time mentioning how unattractive I am)? Or how she will say (and I quote) "it's a shame he won't date me". Or how she will be doing all this in the same breath as telling me that she and he will be going out for a movie?

See, I'm mentioning how some ladies in my class are attractive. I don't actually talk to them outside of class. I don't call them up. I don't go to movies with them. I have no personal interaction with them whatsoever. And I don't plan on starting any. So why should it matter if I find them attractive or not, or if I think they'll date me or not? I have no intention of trying to find out.

Yet obviously it's not okay for me to randomly remark how attractive they are, while it is okay for her to bring up, time and again, how unattractive I am and how this other guy she knows is *FAR* more attractive. And it would seem that it is wrong for me to remark how these people I have no interaction with would not likely go out with me, while it's perfectly fine for her to lament how this other guy who she finds worlds more attractive than me and she is actively spending time with will not date her.

Thank you for warning me how insanely quick to pass unfair judgement you are. I shall make every effort to avoid you in the future, though I'm afraid that may be a little difficult should she decide to continue the relationship, as she likes to visit you.

hrm.. odd. he must have deleted his original comment.

summary: I am evil. I am horrible. I should get "a bullet in each kneecap". I should never have said such things. blah blah blah.

Expand that to about half over as long as my reply was, without any formatting of any kind, and you'll have what he left.

*putting my .02 cents in*

I just had to say something here. Just had to. I've known Laura for awhile, and I usually read her "friends of" page which includes you. I have to admit when I first read this entry - I didn't think twice about it. I can't even remember all the times I've read Laura's journal and she mentioned her hot Math teacher, or some guy with long hair. I would always think to myself, wow - they must have a real honest relationship to be open about that. I can't believe the double standard that is going on here! I'm sure I'm a horrible person too for thinking this, but jeesh it's ridiculous.

Not that my opinion is needed or wanted, but ah well. I don't like double standards.

it's nice to see that I might not be the crazy one here. Having all of her friends curse my name over this is making me question my sanity.

thank you for your input.

I had no idea she did the same things to you, as I only hear her side of the story. Granted, I did jump down your throat pretty quick, I suppose I had assumed she would tell me if there was blame on her end also. If it makes you feel any better, she used to do that stuff to me too a little bit. Mainly with Jan. I'm sorry for nutting up on you, hindsight of course. I am very quick to judge, I admit that, and highly overprotective of my friends. I honestly did not know she ever did the same thing to you. I was never made aware, or believe me, my point of view would have been drastically different. Again, I apologize, I was out of line.
