I replied to dragonblink's ok cupid profile and made reference to reading her LJ, which suggests to me that there's a high probability of her reading this post. I'm glad I finally took the advice of several of my friends and actually wrote instead of continuing to sit around trying to come up with the "perfect" profile and introductory email--that wasn't going anywhere fast.

Also in responding to peoples personal ads, how much should one reveal about oneself?

Though since I tend to be relatively open online, there's not much to reveal that someone couldn't find out by reading my profile or back LJ entries.

Enough to make you sound like a fascinating and unique individual; not so much as to make them run away screaming.

(in other words: i don't know; it's a fine line to tread.)

You're just begging her to go back and read your old entries with that one.

Man, I should check my OKCupid mail more often!

I, instead, should probably have been checking my okcupid mail less often--though it is hard to be patient when one keeps wondering "did she write back?"

Oh yes, I was curious about where you found that neat transcript of all the details about the accident on the 5.

If you click on the words "Los Angeles freeway system" in the post before that, you'll be taken to a map of the current traffic conditions in LA. There are little diamonds where there are accidents and traffic hazards and whatnot -- click on one of them, and you'll get a transcript of the dispatch messages involved.

Really interesting little stories there.
