A bit of an elaboration...

So I have been asked to elaborate upon my previous post. If you look carefully in the background is a romantic duck pond. If closer you looked you might actually see that the wonderous thing I am wrapped around, is in fact a girl! Now this is no ordinary girl, this is a girl to put all other girls to shame! Now a claim so adacious needs backing. The following is what I like to call, THE LIST. I have known her less than 1 month and we have more than 158 things in common! Behold! THE LIST!

There are a couple I would like to especially point out:21, 22,127 and 151! Heaven. She tells jokes. She has as much random knowledge as I do! She's a total environmental nut :) AND she competes in calculus competitions with me!
Math, puns, trivia, environementalist, I am the luckiest guy in the world! Clearly you should all stayed tuned, a word with gianormous capital "M" should be in the works soon!

Oh and before I go, I should also point out as exhibited by the previous post, she's also gorgeous too! Well I hope this was enough of an elaboration. Till next time, take luck.

If I may add my two cents to the post about us...

It should be noted that there is a downside to the list:
We have hundreds of things to add to it, but never remember what they are when we sit in front of a computer!

So:
Limit as commoness->inf.
of Commoness/2=inf.

See I told you I had a brilliant girlfriend!

Ki said...

Oh. Wow.

15 was the clincher, I think.

I am so happy for you! I hope you get to stay as stupidly happy as you sound in this post. Rock on!

Hi Charla! Take care of the nut... he matters.

Charla the Great said...

Hi Ki!
I will take care of him! He's freaking amazing beyond all description.

Boom said...

Ah thanks Ki! Oh, Charla meet Ki simply amazing inspiring world class program director and Steiner officianado. Ki meet Charla simply amazing inspiring world class girlfriend. Good! Now that you've met I think you would actually like each other

I agree with the wish of time divergent stupid happiness. Although I was shocked by the slander of the post on the sanctity of pickles and grapefruit. I am wondering... is this lady a physicist?

Boom said...

Astute observation. She is indeed a physicist AND a math minor! Piddly, pickles and grapefruite both deserve the slander they get. Their only useful purpose is to pass electricity through them!

Charla the Great said...

Meh. Not a physicist, per say. Aspiring, yes. Well, astronomer, technically. Actively working towards it. I am a physics major, but alas, the -ist/-er title is still a ways away...

And about the grapefruit and pickle comments:
My friend Webster tells me that slander means "a malicious, false, and defamatory statement or report" (actually, it was dictionary.com. Webster didn't have quite so eloquent of wording).
Grapefruit actually does suck. It makes you pucker when you eat it, therefore giving it a sucking action. And we both don't like pickles. Both of these aren't slander because 1-They're both true and 2-there's nothing malicious about the statement.
If the pickles and grapefruit have a problem with it, they'll need to talk to my lawyers. Otherwise, electrocuting them will be my only association with them...
