i’m getting neurotic with my browser testing. i think i have every browser known to man on my machine. fun geeky stuff.
google chrome, i hope you are up to par. i have a bias for firefox so please kick some ass and prove me wrong. is there a way to customize you to make you prettier? you’re cool and all, but i’m not too fond of your blueness.
safari (for windows), you are slow as shit, but oh so pretty.
ie(7) – you’re just a slow bastard. i’m not even considering moving to ie8. i’ve forgotten about you already.

so my lovely lady came to visit and stayed with me for the weekend. i love when she’s around. i’m realizing more and more, she’s, not only my partner in life, but she really my best friend. i couldn’t ask for a better person to share my life with. she’s a goofball right along side with me, but also – we are truly growing together on every level. throughout my years and various relationships, i’ve learned relationships end because problems arise, people get fussy and fight and there is rarely ever a mentality of “let’s work on this and grow together”. i’ve never had the faith in another that people are willing to work within a relationship. talk it out, listen and be open. it normally goes something to the fact of “she / he isn’t giving me what i think i need and if he/she doesn’t change, i’m out”. how selfish is that?
its not about “changing”. to me, its about listening to what the other person may need and compromising, while keeping your sense of self. expecting someone else to “change” to get what you want kind of blows and quite frankly, not very fair.
i normally get very fearful bringing things up that “bother” me because the first thing that normally happens is an argument (notice i didn’t use the term ‘discussion’), then a potential break up. i get the total opposite reactions from my lovely lady. she’s calm and actually hears me out. she doesn’t have to agree with me, but she acknowledges my feelings, which is my reality, and we discuss from there. and in addition she really can see beyond what i’m saying and go as far as reassuring those things. its really neat when she understands me when i’m not very good at putting adjectives together to describe what is going on in my head.
example, she’s been very, (understandably), stressed out with her adjustment in her professional life. and we all know, we can’t always be lovey dovey sweet when under pressure and stressed. we talked about it, she understood where i was coming from and vice versa and all was great. that was about a week ago.
long story short, after i dropped my lovely lady off at the airport yesterday to head back home, i find a piece of wood hidden underneath my pillow as i was getting read for bed. “a piece of wood?!” you ask? the piece of wood was mirroring a postcard. on the front, with her own hands, keys and a ball point pen, she carves in the words “i love you”. on the back it reads something to the fact of: “with everything we go through and overcome on a daily basis, you always have my heart…my everything”.
that is the kind of woman she is.
that is my partner.
