It’s always interesting to see what people will pick up on in a post.

Take the last post, for example. I spent far more time, thought and effort writing the second half, about Mr. S, than I did the first half. Which was all about the admittedly thrilling subject of old paper.

(For those wondering: no, I am not inundated with paper at home. It was only a box or two. Okay, three. 🙂 )

Anyway. The comments? Split about 50/50 between the two subjects.

Go Figure.

No, no, it’s not a complaint, just fascinating. Makes me wonder what people will pick up on when I post part 2…

Heh, technology will save me:

Article here.

I doubt it (she?) would be joining me for many hikes. On the other hand, she (it?) would fit nicely in my daypack for those hikes.

So, uh, I guess there’s always that option… hope springs eternal?

Or does it just mean Japanese robot-building-geeks have waaaaay too much time on their hands?



  1. Japanese inventors are always coming up with groovy new solutions for us Singletons. Like the boyfriend arm pillow:
    For the low price of $80 I could have an arm around me every night… 🙂

  2. My first though was when will they make them for lonely women. My second thought was, I don’t think it would be a very satisfying boy/girlfriend. Real kisses seem so much better… but I guess until you try it…

  3. I have something that runs on batteries and fits in my backpack too! I don’t think you would find as much use for it as I have.

  4. I’m sure she’ll keep you warm on the cold nights…

  5. Wow. This could create a whole new breed of socially retarded people. It’s kinda creepy. Would it be less creepy if she was human-sized…? I’m not sure…I’ll have to go ponder that…

    (BTW, Dingo’s comment made me laugh out loud.)

  6. Dingo – why do you think GH wouldn’t get use out of a GPS?!? … Oh, wait … OOOOHHHH!!!!!!!

  7. SingleFabulous – Heh, I’ve been overcharging for my arm; I need to lower my price!

    Aly – Yeah, I’m guessing it falls just a little short of the real thing…

    Dingo – Okay, your comment made me *snort* quite loudly at work today! 🙂

    Just A Girl – Until the batteries run down…

    Mel Heth – Be sure to let me know what you come up with from your ponderings…

    Homer-Dog – LOL
