An update in 4 parts

Work Update - Had my annual review at MIS. Got an 18% raise. not what I asked for, but what I expected I would get. Now I think I can safely afford looking for a place.

Family Update - Mom's doign 100% better now. My aunt flew in from mass. and stayed with us this weekend. I used to cry when she would go back to mass. after a visit. Now I really don't care if she shows up or not. She comes in when she feels like it (once every few years or so). My aunt on my dad's side threw a little shower for my sister after the house fire, so that's why she flew in. Anyways, she flies back out again on monday.

Hobby Update - 7 trails down, 1 more to qualify for the hiking staff and badge, 6 more and we'll have the whole sheet completed. Finding some really awesome trails in the metroparks. Firestone and Goodyear Heights were both really nice trails. New Photo Album links are forthcoming


It's all so clear now

I've had some luck this year with personal ad sites. I'd heard the commercials for eharmony so I figured what the hell, give it a shot. After the LENGTHY process full of multiple choice questions, I finally got to the end. Clicked the submit button on the last page and was greeted with this.

"eHarmony is based upon a complex matching system developed through extensive research with married couples. One of the requirements for successful matching is that participants to fall within certain defined profiles. If we find that we will not be able to match a user using these profiles, we feel it is only fair to inform them early in the process.

We are so convinced of the importance of creating compatible matches to help people establish happy, lasting relationships that we sometimes choose not to provide service rather than risk an uncertain match.

Unfortunately, we are not able to make our profiles work for you. Our matching model could not accurately predict with whom you would be best matched. This occurs for about 20% of potential users, so 1 in 5 people simply will not benefit from our service. We hope that you understand, and we regret our inability to provide service for you at this time."


so, yeah. I'm not good enough for eharmony ;-) That's GOTTA be why I'm still single at 29 lol Thank you eharmony for making my suckiness so clear ;-)

p.s. before anybody yells at me, no I'm not taking eharmony's response seriously ;-)

p.p.s. Just got an email from them offering me 3 months of their service for $49.99. So they reject me from matching anyone, yet they still will gladly except my money ;-)
