I am partially blaming my old coworker/major crush. I used to sit in his truck with him while he smoked American Spirits. The other part I'm blaming on. . . bad things.

I also used to fantasize about running my fingers through his hair.

I still do.

This is pathetic.

I need to get laid.

Curly. Oh so curly. Guys would hit on him. And so soft.

And it looked really good on him. . . not in a hipster-y way, like most girls say "he looks good with curly hair."

And.. yeah. We need to start a club.

Yep. I have never been a smoker, but I've liked the smell and taste in certain situations for years now.

If by certain situations, you mean "totally turned on when talking to your manager and he walks in reeking of cigarettes" yeah, that's exactly it.





'Cause that's a weird situation to wet your panties in.

I explained that is not something I am ok with and would not compromise on. Since then I got Ivy and then Qcumber
GreenM, that is what we are going to have eventually. I just need to finagle a time where we wont be interrupted.

Not checking their emails every 5 minutes and working on marketing all day.

Sorry but it's a huge pet peeve of mine that people get so upset when they don't get an immediate response, especially because these people are my friends and I know how busy they are.
Seriously? I know that, I've been on the other side of this coin. I've been waiting 10 days for a response for a class that should have started this week (according to their website it's been pushed to next week). It took them two weeks to even respond to my initial "Hey I'm interested in this class on your website" email and even then they didn't address anything I asked about. I understand being busy but that's not how a business should be run. Not if you want it to be successful anyway.

Sorry, it's a pet peeve of mine when people jump to conclusions.

Dog people, generally speaking, are not very good at marketing. Or running businesses. Not like it's an easy skill and everybody has it or anything, but I've noticed a large lack of it among dog people I know.
Also professionalism in general.

Yeah, it drives me a little crazy (and I really do wonder how some people stay in business). I've been trying to find a place to do classes with Mu for over a month now and NO ONE has gotten back to me. I'm getting really discouraged. I just want my one night to go do dog things with dog people.

It's unfortunate, and I think a lot of people aren't sure how to run their business. I also really dislike the gossip that goes along with it. And wow do some dog people talk trash about their students. Those are your CUSTOMERS... they pay you money... you should probably stop talking ($*@ about them...
