That and actually taking the time to read women's profiles and message them using something I read from their profile and mixing it up with a bit of humour.

So in this case, she said at the end of her profile that she liked "cheese jokes". So I wrote her a message saying "Brie mine. I think we'll be very Gouda together". Totally "cheesy" opening line. But she found if hilarious and it got us talking.

Worst thing you can say is "Hi, how are you doing". Women receive these messages hundreds of times every week and they're instantly deleted once read.

I have gotten the best messages since doing the honest profile. They seem to love it. It also just landed me an awesome date and we are already talking about our next date.

Re: Your ADD moment for today

I had the bathroom sink plugged and was filling it with soap and water to wash one of the kids' shoes. Apparently, I just walked out of the bathroom and left the water running, because I walked past it a minute later and thought, "What's that noise?" Looked in just as the sink was about to overflow.

Re: Your ADD moment for today

Could not get a workflow computer to boot after I had twiddled its bits inside the case.

Eventually led to me sputtering and exclaiming a few choice expletives.

Only then did I remember, per procedure, that I had disconnected the power supply before getting into its innards.


Cheers,
Ian

I was once late for a college final for that reason. On top of my alarm not going off in the am, my bike was in one of those massive underground bike sheds (with 100s of bikes...). You can guess that I had no idea where the hell my bike was. Ended up having to take the bus instead, so I was even later. Those were the times.

Honestly, after so many failures with am/pm I am sticking with 24-hour notation. Not that I don't make the mistake of 17 = 7 o'clock rather than 17 = 5 o'clock, but the failure rate is significantly less than with the am/pm rubbish. Who came up with that in the first place? :P

Re: Your ADD moment for today

Life's been rough lately and I was crying this morning and at some point half way through I was googling how tear ducts work.

Also was listening to Pandora at the gym and a funny song called 'Beep beep I'm a sheep' played and I didn't realize I had started singing with it right away. Not sure if anyone heard me but I sure hope not lol.

Re: Your ADD moment for today

Knew it was going to be winter storm with winter cold and winter wind and winter precip and I forgot my ear-mitts and wool cap at home anyway.


Damnit,
Ian

Re: Your ADD moment for today

Where I live, cell phones and internet are all pay-as-you-go, no data or phone plans of any kind. So when you run out of credits, you have to go buy more. All you need to get credits is a bit of cash and your phone number, but I can never remember my number, so I put myself on my contact list and just carry my phone with me.

So, anyway, today I went to get credits, parked across the street from the phone company office, dodged heavy traffic to walk across the street, then once I arrived, realized I'd left my phone in my vehicle. I had to go all the way back across the busy street to get it. Ugh, only needed to remember two easy things, and I managed to forget one of them!

My only consolation is that I at least did remember my purse. One out of two, maybe not so bad after all!
