It was one year ago today that Spring
and I realized we both had
mutual crushes and decided to become an item.
Of course, it happened over email since she was in New Jersey and I was here
in Lower Sheol (aka South Florida). We were on the same mailing list (DaveWorld, a mailing
list where there are no Dave's. You just wouldn't get it) for several years
and knew each other through it. We had exchanged private emails a few
times but nothing real significant. Then one year ago it happened.
I was at work at The Company, with this massive headache, feeling
exceedingly tired but yet so wired with a sugar and caffiene high that I was
buzzing (“Sean, do you hear that wierd buzzing noise?” “Oooohhhh
ddddoooonnnn'tttt mmmmiiiinnnndddd tttthhhhaaaatttt,,,, iiiitttt'ssss
jjjjuuuusssstttt mmmmeeee … … … …”). Spring sent an email, I
replied with an uncharacteristic frankness that is generally reserved with
inebriation and five hours later (all through email—a kind of slow-man's
Instant Messenger if you will) we were an item.
Okay, an item spread out over 1,200 miles of U. S. shoreline, but still, an
item. We didn't physically meet until January of this year (and if you check, you'll see that's there this gap in
January—that was me in New Jersey). Then shen came down here for Easter,
and then once more in July, and has been here ever since.

ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
