The new blog is fixed! Fixed! I just posted a fabulously funny introduction that you must all go read immediately. There will be a quiz! And if you fail, you will be forced to repeat the entire blog! And really, nobody wants that. Even if Jodi (hi Jodi!) does claim that she just read and enjoyed my entire archives, I think most people would be driven to drink by the experience so it is best that you avoid it if at all possible.
Anyway, yesterday I got an email from one of the lovely people over at the new gig saying the "IT team" had found and fixed the problem (apparently, they needed to whizzbang the whosiwhatsit and recalibrate the fllibbertygibbet) and my first thought was "yay!" and my second thought was "I wonder if the IT team is cute?" You know I love geeks, right? And nerds, and dorks. Smart is so hott. What I love above all things is a computer geek, because not only will they probably get my Star Trek references, they can also fix my email and troubleshoot registry issues.
I have never understood women who get all hot and bothered over football players or actors - what are they going to do for you? (Ok, I mean other than that and you know it and just have a dirty mind, which I love about you, but that is not the point here.) I'll take a nice hacker over that any day of the week.
Then I started thinking: why do I assume that the "IT team" is a group of cutely nerdy guys sitting in a darkened corner somewhere beefing up their personal firewalls when they aren't busy fixing my little website? Shouldn't I assume that the "IT team" is equally likely to be a couple of women with cute shoes and nicer eyebrows than me? Especially since this is a very women-focused organization and every single person I have dealt with so far has been a shining example of the fairer sex? What kind of modern, feminist, liberated woman am I to automatically assume that anything technical is handled by men?
I was going to make a point here, I really was, but I still find myself wondering if the IT team is cute.
Oh, and thanks to everyone who asked about publishing my last name over at the other place, I appreciate your concern and your looking out for me. You needn't worry, however, as my paranoia is still alive, well, and fully intact and some things are not as they seem.
