Stranger in a Strange land.

Although my husband and I are alike in so many ways, (both Pisces, looks similar that we are mistaken for brothers, love Sci Fi), there is one thing in which we are diametrically opposites and it is Technology.

I have had a computer since I was 16. I spent hours in chat rooms and surfing the web. Yes those were the days before Netscape and IE where you had to use Gopher. I love electronic gadgets - PDA's, Cell Phones, etc.

So today I was feeling romantic and sent John a song on his Cell phone ("I just called to say I love you"). So he calls me at work and asks what do you want? So I said what do you mean. He says well I see you called. I said well I sent you a message. Why he say's you mad at me? No, I said just wanted to send you a message, you need to look listen to it. He said OK and hung up. Ten minutes later he calls and says the message didn't go through. So I wasted $1.50 trying to be romatic electronically. Guess I'll head to Hallmark at Lunch.

you said: "...looks similar that we are mistaken for brothers..."

Bryan and I get that all the time. We will just walk into a store, and the person behine the counter will say "Hey, are you two brothers?" Bryan will say "NO", and they will say "Are you sure?" We just laugh and keep walking. Maybe we should just do a big open mouth kiss and see what they say then....

Well usually if I'm pissy I'll say "no, but theres a lot of me in him" and giggle to myself.

Yeah I know I'm sick.

I need to check the exact count, but there are a large number of Pisces on my Friends list. Dunno why.

I got the "Are you brothers?" ("Um, not quite. But you're getting warmer...") several times with two of my past boy friends.

BTW - That's favorite book & author for me. Have you read "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" (before his surviving widow edited it a few years ago)?

Yes. I read almost everything he's ever written when I was in junior high and high school. "The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress" I have re-read several times over the years. With some of the guys I've dated, we got into reading to each other. Its good practice. But this book is not easy to read aloud. It uses words from several languages.

Well I'm pretty sure I've got it. (I read most of his books 20 years ago.) Think I grab it and take it with me on the trip this weekend. :)
