I didn't put my wife on my list of interests, because she's more than an interest ;)

-The People I love (way above any other options)

-Optical media (studying, testing, burning, ANYTHING related!)
-helping people
-everything else is kind of pale in comparison
Punch Cards -> Paper Tape -> Tape Drive -> 8" Floppy Diskette -> 5 1/4" Floppy Diskette -> 3 1/2" "Flippy" Diskette -> CD-R -> DVD±R -> BD-R

- The great outdoors

- The beach
- Travelling (I prefer Europe or exotic [read island] locales for the most part)
- Dancing (don't do it nearly enough these days)

I hope things even out for ya, VEFF. Relationships can be damn tricky.

I've been married for a few years now, and I still don't understand things. For instance, my wife will say, "I don't care about the dishes as much as I care about the house being vacuumed." So I vacuum.

Next week:
"I don't care about the the house being vacuumed as much as I care about the dishes being done." :o

I've learned that on days like those, regular Excedrin does NOT work as well as Excedrin Migraine. But then again, sometime it doesn't work at all.
