While running a search for a specific incident that I’d written up int
this blog, I stumbled across a blog entry that I wrote early in the
morning of my birthday last year, titled Life of Joey.
It was a quick summary of my life written up as a “laundry list” of
events, from birth until the then-present day. Here’s a pertinent
selection of items:
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Best Date Ever 1a. I live the lyrics to AC/DC’s most popular song,
which is why it’s a favourite of mine. You’ll eventually read about it.
New York, New York, USA
Best Date Ever 1b. Round 2.
Best Date Ever 2.
New Year’s 1999
A last-minute trip to the Czech Republic to celebrate New Year’s 2000
in a castle outside Prague. Had an amazing time at the party, met cute
redhead. Foiled an attempted mugging and took redhead on Best Date Ever
3 in the same day.
LinuxWorld Expo 2000 in New York City!
Second-best moment: leading a parade of a hundred geeks including
CmdrTaco and Hemos from Slashdot down Broadway to the Slashdot/VA Linux
party with the accordion, singing The Clash and Fatboy Slim all the way
there. End up drinking with Hooters wairesses, who try to convince me
to take my date to their restaurant.
Best moment: Best Date Ever 4.
You are here.
Looking to have Best Date Ever 5. Any takers?
One of the comments was from someone whom regular readers of this blog may find familiar:

A month later, I had my first date with Wendy.
has been getting to know you. But as for Best Date Ever 5, remember
that I’m a married man.
To which I replied:
Whether that needed service is a wedding or an exorcism has yet to be
Once again: Wendy — you’re Best Date Ever #5, and the Best of the Best Dates, too!
