First day of work; went to lunch with receptionist and her friend. I thought the friend worked a couple floors down, instead she worked with us. Had a crush on her ever since. Since I don't normally date work people it was a year later that we ended up going to the movies and dating and courting and getting engaged and getting married and all is yippee yeehaw still.

I met my better half back in the summer of 1988 when I was juggling in the park with a local juggling club. Gail (my now wife) was unicycling across the road, with one broken arm in a cast and the other carrying her juggling equipment. It was love at first sight ... at least from me. I think it took a bit of time for Gail to warm up to me. We started dating in 1989 and were married in 1991. Secret to our success is to find things that we both enjoy. Biking is a natural!

No girlfriend at the moment. But if history is any guide, my future relationship most likely will be (A) someone who caught my attention at first sight--most likely in some sort of nerdy setting (school, research, science competition, etc)--and (B) someone whose affection I don't pursue until quite a while later. There's been one exception to (A) where two years of subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) flirting finally got my attention. (Still took two years after that before I did much about it.) And one exception to (B) where someone simply seduced me.

Well, I ordered Olga online. Gave my credit card and she's apparently being shipped right over. That was 3 months ago. ****ing DHS. They always lose my packages. Oddly, my credit card was maxed out soon after that. I keep meaning to get around to finding out why. Oh well. C'mon, Olga, when are you comming home?

I was flipping through the catalog, sizing up all the choices, trying to decide which one I wanted the most. I knew this was an expensive proposition, a decision not to be made lightly. I gazed upon a slim, black beauty and knew that my choice had been made for me. Carbon fiber it would be...



Oh wait, you were talking about something else, weren't you? (sound of hand smacking forehead)


(Edit: The really sad thing? I didn't see explody pup's post before writing my own. I guess truly warped minds do think alike.)

We met in the San Diego State University Band. We were friends for about a year before we started going together. I always say that our "official" beginning was when I brought her a cupcake with two candles in it for her 20th birthday (hey, I was broke back then, and cakes don't fit on motorcycles!). Interestingly, our paths had crossed many times before, but we never met.

As a matter of fact, today is our 25th wedding anniversary!

I wa riding my bike when I tried to avoid a banana peal someone carelessly left on the road, it came too quick and I slipped, which had me landing over my handle bars.. out of nowhere was this very tall, dark and handsome runner who in slow motion put his arms up and catch me right before I landed on the sand, I was chewing gum that day and I had choked on it by all of my surprise, he slide his finger down my throat to retrive it but his finger was too big ( he was such a huba huba big men) therefore leaving him no choice to used his tongun to retrive the gum, once retrived he continued this technique once or twice just to help me regain conciousness.. I open my eyes and he was carrying me now fisinhing his run so I could see the beautiful trails.... awwww love....

We met from TrailCentral.com we were just going to ride with eachother, he pursued me for like 8 months cause I was seeing an IDIOT and was BLIND. I allowed him to take me out to dinner and it was like magic. We clicked so well. We both had the love for the same thing etc. Its almost been a year now and its been great. We have traveled to lots of new places, I've been able to experience things I didn't think were possible.
