My gas filter is clogged. It takes so long to fill the tank that yesterday, the pump computer shut down, so instead of printing my receipt when I replaced the nozzle, it read, "System initializing ... (imagine the ellipse growing and collapsing to indicate whatever progress is being made)" This may or may not be some kind of metaphor for my life. Alternatively, it may just be a clever title for a first blog post.
Anyway, this blog is hereby inaugurated to serve as a record of the vicissitudes of online dating, an exercise made up, thus far, of a long string of "WTF?! No, really, are you serious!?!" It would appear that they are.
