Question for January 8, 2019

 

Have you ever backed or created a Kickstarter?

 

Think I backed 6 this past year.  Most of them were just getting a few pieces and not the full KS.  I went biggest on Limbo Eternal War.

Ohhhhh, this will be a good one. 

 

Short version: through a short mutual friend (we joked 4'6", 5' with the mohawk) who threatened to beat me upside the head with her largest cast iron frying pan when she found out I was interested in him but wouldn't say anything because we both were in rather long distance relationships at the time. 

 

Long version: nah, I'll stick to the "short punk chef who actually will use a cast iron frying pan to keep her cooks in line" threatening to send me to the hospital version, it's better :p

Actually, she had conducted my first interview at the place that i applied at. She was already in another relationship at that time, but 6 months later she was chasing me down the parking lot while I pretended I didn't hear her calling my name. There's a long story to our entire relationship.

At school. When she poured a bowl of custard over the head of a particularly stupid and offensive chemistry teacher I knew she was the girl for me.

Online, through a smaller free dating website that was later bought out by match.com.

Long before internet dating was a thing, when most folks still didn't have computers, he sent an email complimenting something I had written. We struck up a correspondence, and after a while arranged to meet.

She sought advice on the internet for purchasing a dog.

I gave advice, we chatted, we emailed, we met.

She got me and my dog Odin then..

He was a cook at the place I still currently work. On my first day I was being shown around and the HR lady takes me into the kitchen and introduces me to him. He dismissively says hi, in the way of grumpy cooks everywhere, and glanced at me. Then he did a double take and said hello more enthusiastically :lol: he noticed my long red hair :lol: 

 

Over the course of the next four months or so he'd bring me breakfast at the end of my shift and flirt with me. Eventually he gave me his number :wub:

The short (and PG) version is that we met at the bar she worked at.

Remember how in the summer of 2016 a bunch of grown adults all stopped hiding in their houses and went outside and played Pokemon Go for a few months? We met via mutual friends doing that. He still plays occasionally, but I haven't played in years.

I meet Old Crazy Linda, my ex, at work. She worked days & I had just started working second shift. It was near Christmas in 1969. They were exchanging Christmas cards on her shift.

She gave me a card so "I wouldn't feel weird(left out)". Six months later we started dating. I asked her out; re, she had a good sense of humor...anyone who have anything to do with me

needed one.
