geek travails and party

If I was less of a skeptic I might think that I'm not supposed to buy the cinema display. I tried driving over to fry's to see if they had the DVI to ADC widget and to get a part to try and test a motherboard I bought off of eBay. Unfortunately while sitting waiting for a light at a large intersection I noticed the thermostat on my car was rapidly heading for meltdown.

I managed to find a place to put it and then had to go wandering looking for some additional coolant. I parked next to a costco but being a members only store couldn't buy anything there. I walked a bit further and found an auto parts store. I also found foam mart and a store that sold ancient arms and armor. I never would've noticed the armory if I hadn't walked past it.

After leaving fry's I noticed I had a voicemail from a friend inviting me to a party. I went and mostly spent it around people I haven't seen in a while. An interesting detail was that I think I was far more touchy feely than usual. I wonder if I'm slowly managing to get past my repression.

Also musicwomyn wanted to see what secretslip looked like. Being the computer addict that I am, I just happened to have my laptop with some web cam footage of her. The couple of queer women watching the video thought that she certainly didn't look straight. (When gay-dar goes wrong)

Just before leaving they had a dance dance revolution system setup and I finally got to try it. It's rather fun, and led me to track down pydance and ddrmaniaX which lead to other DDR sites.

Then I went home and rebuilt my desktop using the noisy by stable athlon.

Needless to say this has been quite the busy day.

It was great hanging out with you at the party. I noticed you were more touchy feely, too, and it was nice. You had your arm around me at a certain point and you seemed more comfortable with that than I've ever noticed before. It was comforting :)

As for secretslip, I hope she takes it as a compliment that she looks queer.

Yes that's not something I would've done anytime in recent memory. I might want to have put my arm around someone but I always assumed that it would be unwelcome. I wonder if the one drink I had lowered my inhibitions? Or perhaps it was getting to know you better through LJ that made me feel more comfortable with that.
