Yvonne Strahovski #6
Of course I have been waiting the prerequisite time period as established in My Date with Drew for the powers that be to deliver my invitation to Miss Strahovski and for her to accept. It would appear that my totally passive approach is not working. On the other hand (aside: "Why are there no one armed economists?" Answer: "Because they couldn't say 'on the other hand.'") apathy is my strongest emotion so I doubt I will be pursuing this with any additional vigor. I did get one strange telephone call from a female in southern California some time back but when I called back I always got a machine and no return call. Perhaps a drunk dial but one can dream.
So, two facts: First, Miss Strahovski continues to be one of the most active viewed blog entries. Second, I am planning to do the eastern Caribbean Island chain next winter so perhaps Miss Strahovski can arrange her schedule to do foredeck for some or all of the trip. It would have been nice to have someone on foredeck coming into New Bern. I might still have a jib. Oh well.
