Mercury Rising

Mum said this morning that 1 in 5 people are registered in dating agencies. 1 in 5? Really? I’m wondering whether I should try something like that. Sometimes it seems like a good idea. I don’t come into contact with many women my own age, so it seems like a reasonable way of meeting people. On the other hand, it sometimes seems a little crass. The dating sites let you filter prospective partners, which would be an irresistible feature. For example, I don’t think I could go out with anybody who smoked. I know real life involves filtering people like that, but doing it in such an obvious fashion doesn’t feel quite right. Or maybe I’m being a dick, and if the other person doesn’t mind then what does it matter? Ho hum, just thinking out loud.

Speaking of relationships, does anybody else find Tom Cruise and Kate’s Holmes’ engagement rather odd? Not that I don’t wish them the best of luck, but it just seems…odd. This is the man who left Nicole Kidman and Penelope Cruz, for crying out loud 🙂

Speaking of hotness (damn my segues are good today), it’s very, very warm outside. Which is funky. Wore the wrong shirt for walkies, though. Phew.
