Just in time for the holiday. I saw a commercial for eHarmony. They are offering a free communication weekend from this Friday through Sunday.

However, there is a catch, as I quote from a blog:

For one, eHarmony doesn't allow users of its "free communication weekend" to see photos of other members. You have to pay for that. In addition, eHarmony limits the matches to ten. Want more than that? Gotta pay. eHarmony also disabled its Fast Track feature so that users of the free trial couldn't skip the normal communication process and begin communicating instantly.

One benefit of beung single (there aren't many) is the ability to take naps when you want to... or need to.

Can someone give me a wake up call in a few hours ?

If you can't do that while in a relationship, you need to escape.

It certainly was not meant as taunting. More informational, in case anyone was interested. And besides, could you really shun someone who could debate the finer points of ST-TNG with you?

Good Sir, we Dateless Losers do not need 'help'. We are well aware of the Hell that is internet dating.

And Sixty is pretty good with ST-TNG stuff.

Possession of a printing press isn't exactly the same thing, despite what he may have lead you to believe

At least as good as any bank issued note. But that still may not be good enough for a graduate of Secret Training Campô

I am a staff officer in said camp. Atteeen-shun!!

Ladies schooled in the ways of the Secret Training Campô do not use cash. They use plastic, preferrably with a male's name on the card.

I wasn't aware that Secret Training Camp™ was put on by the Secret Service.

The cleanup effort required on Sunday will be truly epic. *points at level 2 biohazard suits hanging in the closet*

That's not saying much given the state of your banks. After all they were just giving "money" away.
