While the logistics of developing a more than casual affection for someone who lives a million miles away are rather complicated and stressful, falling for a geek rocks. It is really wonderful to adore and be adored by someone who actually gets excited about the notion of reading the papers you write and who just doesn't buy into the notion that they aren't very good.
It is just really great to call up a women you are coming to care for, more and more every time you communicate with her and have her get really excited that you just emailed her your latest paper. Although she probably doesn't realize this means she owes me some emailed paper goodness of her own...But as I say she adores me too, so I just know that she'll send me some.
I may have failed to mention it previously, but this is one hella damned brilliant women and reading what she has to say is positively electrifying. And while her blogposts and emails are rather exciting, I am positively giddy with anticipation for even more formal examples of her stunning feats of mental prowess.
All this excitement and she's fucking gorgeous on top of it all - and not only willing to, but interested in putting up with me!!!
