It's been a while. I've been in a homework hole of sorts. I completely skipped valentines day... but I did have something to show you. While I was reading magazines at Borders one night... ( a common, and cheap, way to unwind), this was the cover story:

Scientific American Mind

I laughed but then, I did pick it up and read it. There is a large cynical part of me that believes love and chemistry are never black and white. There is a part of me that likes a little mystery and doesn't want to be told how certain things work...There are lots of things in my life that I consider mysteries. I'm ok with that. For example, How does a  fax machine actually work? How do airplanes fly when they are clearly so heavy and most paper airplanes can't make it across the living room. Not the ones I make. It's a good thing I don't make planes. And what are the rules of football? (Men keep trying to explain it to me, I still don't get it.) These are mysteries I don't mind living with. According to Scientific American, all we need to do is breathe together and make eye contact and hold hands and share experiences. How devastatingly simple.

I have been doing the eHarmony thing lately. And sort of collecting bits of info from everyone around me about dating...

To list a few:

Make yourself available, but not too available.

Make him chase you. Guys like that.

Be yourself but don't let all the crazy out at once.

Wear flats, don't be taller than him.

This one is from my sister, and it's probably the funniest thing I have ever heard...

"This is a very good sign. When a guy is excited about going on a date with you, he will spend part of that day cleaning out his car for you. If he picks you up in a spotless car, it's very good news."

Anyway, in one of the books I've been reading for class, I found this quote:

" It seems to me that love is best entered unaware; it best happens without thought, like a sudden plunge into deep water." - Lan Samantha Chan

I can put February to rest now and get caught up to March.
