Why do women have to be so smart?

Kelli has her Masters degree. I have a bachelors. I also have a commercial pilots license. Eh. Kelli wins.

I have only had 3 serious relationships in my life. All three women though have, or are in the process of attaining, advanced degrees. They are all different (Lawyer, Educator and Scientist) yet all were not satisfied with "good enough" bachelors degrees. Eh. Why the need to be so smart? Bleh.

Back in 1995 I got into email. Back then when someone forwarded a joke it was truly funny and the first time one was likely to see it. No longer true today.

Back then though I wanted more people to contact via email than just the geeks on my dorm room floor. I copied a few of the email addresses attached to a forwarded message and replied. I got one or two replies. One was from a woman named Jodi Coleman.

Jodi was also a freshman college student a Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA. We emailed back and forth for the entire school year and part of the next. Lost touch after that. I think I emailed her once in 2001....but that was it.

A few weeks ago I was going through my Hotmail address book and saw her name. Searched her on Facebook, and we are back in touch again. It's been 16 years...never met her in person. Ironically she lives in Pittsburgh, PA where I did a ton of overnights in 2008/2009. Eh.

Prius is doing well. Still getting 48-50 MPG. Still haven't finished installing the subwoofer. Might never. Eh.

Ipad 2 is pretty cool. Thinner, faster and lighter. Would be great for my mother in law. She is just getting into her Kindle though. Maybe next year.
