After work (and after feeding and hydrating the cats), I headed down to the `Spot for the Grind. Some friends of mine were to be there to help a friends of theres celebrate her anniversary while her SO is working in Iraq.

I shouldn't have danced. I really shouldn't have. I had already retweaked my knee by feeling excessively energetic, and leaping the stone wall in my front yard to get the mail. But just like Kevin Kline's character in "In&Out", I couldn't not. (I'm paying for it now, of course. Ouch.)

No less than *four* people who know me only by having me appear on their match list on OkCupid introduced themselves. All of them pretty cute, too.

Of course, it being the Grind, there were several examples of good eye candy in attendance.

After all my friends left, I ended up chatting with and enjoying some time with a nice lady who had been surreptitiously (but not well) eying me most of the night.

Current Music: (Shrek II) Jennifer Saunders singing Holding Out For A Hero.

Well you are quite striking. You came to my attention via OkCupid too. ;-)

(There is a version of Holding out for a Hero with Jennifer Saunders singing? I must get this soundtrack!)

Indeed there is.

I starts out as a c-minor lounge act, and with the first chorus transition, turns into a rockin' swing.

I tried OkCupid, but it wouldn't let me in. When I tried to create a new user it said a user with that email address was already in the database, but when I tried to use the lost password feature it said a user with that email address was not in the database.

I didn't introduce myself, but I did see you there.
I was deep in conversation when you were available and when I was available you were dancing. Looked like you were enjoying yourself so I didn't want to break your stride. Next time I'll say hi.
