You know, it's just occured to me that whenever I get interested in a girl who's really good at programming, it's always "really good at programming" in the context of "is learning stuff that I already know relatively fast". If the alternative had ever shown up, I'd be worried that maybe I had this superiority complex and couldn't bear for people I was interested in romantically to be equal to me in the things I'm good at.

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.
