Far Across the Distance and Spaces Between Us

OMG Ryan, tell me you didn't go there!  Is that title post actually lyrics from that Titanic movie theme song?  You have gone over to the dark side (or rather mushy side).  Now I know you'll do anything for attention!  :(

Didn't I say I looked just like him?
No really guys this fits.  Let me 'splain.  And really it had been on my mind 'cause I had just been thinking about seeing Kate Winslet naked in 3D on the big screen!

So, I was pretty sure this Sandee thing was never going to go anywhere so I threw out a real Hail Mary (or rather grabbed something out of my ass).  What was there to loose at this point except my pride (but as you can see from my blog that is not really a high priced commodity)!

But really the thing was that I was fairly busy at work and didn't really have a whole lot of time to go fishing for new prospects on AM just now.  And to be honest I was already contemplating how this thing was going to play out on the blog.  I really thought the epic failure here would be an interesting story to tell.  You know you always learn more through failure - or at least I heard that once in a movie I think.  Bottom line was, I was going to keep moving forward; I really had little to lose.

Since Sandee had said something about being afraid to take a jump on all this AM stuff, this is what I wrote to follow up on those notes following the weekend debacle.

"Dear Sandee,

Couldn't help feeling like Leo a bit (see quotes below).  Don't jump Sandee!
Don't do it.

Sandee: Stay back! Don't come any closer!
Ryan: Come on, just give me your hand. I'll pull you back over.
Sandee: No, stay where you are! I mean it! I'll let go!
Ryan: [He approaches slowly, gesturing to his cigarette to show that he is approaching merely to throw it over the side into the ocean] No, you won't.
Sande: What do you mean, "No, I won't"? Don't presume to tell me what I will and will not do, you don't know me!
Ryan: Well, you woulda done it already.
Sandee: You're distracting me! Go away!
Ryan: I can't. I'm involved now. You let go, and I'm, I'm 'onna have to jump in there after you.
Sandee: Don't be absurd. You'd be killed!
Ryan: I'm a good swimmer.

OK, so I'm silly and like movie quotes - sue me!"

Get it, I'm comparing us to Kate and Leo but in my case I'm actually using reverse psychology encouraging her to jump (to me)!

And it worked.  Or at least it seemed to.

How could ANYONE not ADORE  silly Ryan????  OMG!! I was crackin up like you wouldn't beLIEVE reading these e-mails!! Seriousy! crack-IN-up!!!! I was tempted to dial your digits just so you'd hear, but didn't want you to think I was more nuts than you already do!!
Thanks for the laughs!!!!! You DA BEST!!   :) :) :) :) :) :) :)
I will rent that movie. Can you come watch it with me?? For realz! Friday night!! You, me, and your precious Kate! And you can finally taste my brownies!!

Ryan would YOU jump in to save me??? Or would you throw a brick on me?? :)"

I know what you are thinking; I'm stupid.  This will never go anywhere.

But it was at this time I started to think about a scientific experiment.  I had read Riff Dog's laments about "e-mail queens."  Heck, I'd even written about e-mail queens myself.  But I had always given up and apparently Riff Dog and everyone else always did too.  When I thought about it my only cost in continuing to pursue Sandee was my time which as you can see is not all that valuable.  No, I think I owed it to the scientific community to continue to pursue this.

And maybe now you can see why I wrote this blog entry several weeks ago about e-mail queens!

And anyway while we have other friends that are notoriously "doggish" I tend to be a little more like a cat.  Yeah a dog will just pick up anything it finds on the ground.  But a cat enjoys the hunt, the pursuit, the chase.

I know you are thinking this blog makes no sense but maybe now you can see the "organized chaos" I try to create.

Hey this makes 8 posts in 9 days; I'm really crankin'.  And I've got a really smokin' post ready to post on Thursday.  And then maybe I'll take a rest!

So how were the brownies? Chewy or Fudgy... I always like the more moist fudgy brownies myself. Tomorrow will we have a blog about brownies?
