This is gonna be a short entry. I'm pressed for time.
To prove that I'm not lying, I've got Netflix DVD's waiting for me. They sit there on the top of the entertainment center just laughing at me. Time is ticking and they know that I try to squeeze out every dime of my Netflix membership. I try to watch them in the same day that I get them and put them back into the mail for the next one. It's usually a two day turnaround.
And those damn DVD's just sit there with their red paper covers laughing. Laughing at me.
I'll stop the mental breakdown for a minute and move on.
Last night, I attended the 8 Minute Date with the 1075KZL crew. Actually, it was a joint venture with Rock 92. Jason Goodman (Afternoon Drive 1075KZL) and I were overseeing the room of twenty-somethings. Two late comers entered the proceedings and that added a little extra craziness to the whole evening.
One of the ladies got her friend involved because it was her birthday. So why not celebrate by doing something that you've never done before? In my eyes, beats the hell out of bungy-jumping.
Who do you think got thrown into the mix? Yep... Me. There were at least two ladies without "dates" every go 'round. I would park myself at one of the ladies' table and bothered them slightly for 8 minutes. Clutching handbags... That's a slightly bothered sign, right?
I don't know. I can never get a good read on women. They confuse the hell out of me. I never know when a woman is flirting with me. I usually get that information from a friend of the opposite sex. Thank you Christine!
I'm surprised ANYTIME that a woman is interested in me. I should know, I've spent my whole life with me and I can easily understand the disinterest.
I've seen news stories about these kind of 8 minute love-meets and I was curious as to how it all happens. It was interesting. I had a great time and I met a lot of lovely and cool ladies.
If you have the misconception about "losers" being at these things, you're dead wrong. LOTS of good looking ladies! Lots of interesting ladies. Being a strictly hetero kinda guy, I will say there was a good assortment of man-meat available too.
When I was asked if I thought I had met someone that interested me, I simply gave them my usual answer.
"It doesn't matter who I meet... Women avoid me like a leper."
As of yet, I haven't heard anything about any of the women being interested in me. Par for the course, baby!
But, you know what? I'd love to do it again. I recommend 8 Minute Dating whenever you get the chance to do it. It was great fun. And like they say, you can't win it unless you're in it!
