So I'd started a post about how tired I am and what a shitty mood I'm in. Bah. I'm tired. I'm in a shitty mood. I feel kind of sick. My back hurts. My physio exercises are frustrating because I don't know if I'm doing them right. Who wants to read about that? Bah. Bah.
Instead, I will introduce you to OKCupid, my new favourite way to waste time. It involves finding people to date and taking quizzes. If it contained a reference guide to common grammatical error in English, it would be my favourite thing ever. And it classified me as a "Dirty Little Secret": Innocent but fundamentally sexual, like the word "finger". That pleased me.
Here's my personality in full: www.okcupid.com/personality....
The site has a bazillion questions you can answer and almost as many tests to take, and then some magic in the form of algorithms runs around in the back engine and matches you up with people who have the same interests, etc. It actually seems pretty accurate, if only because I either recognize or know a whack of the people who are my matches in Ottawa. Because our interests are matched, natch.
What I really like about the site though, is that it's for boys and girls. Gay and straight and those of us in between. It means I don't have to be on a "looking for boys" site and have to worry that some boy is going to think I'm a labatt's lesbian and not a dyke. I don't have to be on a "looking for girls" site and feel defensively proud of the fact I like fucking boys. All my neuroses get cut off at the pass. I can just say I'm bisexual and I'll date people who want to date bisexuals. And all y'all who don't can go fuck other people.
I like that.
Okay, I'm in a better mood now.
