Except the alternative really *hasn't* shown up, annoyingly enough. I think Naomi was the closest, and a good deal of that was the fact that I really hadn't come into my own yet. Somehow I doubt she can really match me at this point . . . I don't know, maybe that's egotism or maybe it's just an honest evaluation. (How can you tell the difference?)
Thinking about meeting a female who can match me with programming . . .
. . . is sort of a dead zone, because deep inside I don't really believe it can happen. There are few enough males who can match me on my grounds, and for whatever reason, there are very few female techs.
You know, that's a really depressing thought.
I'm going to go cook a slab of potential prions, I'm hungry.
