Pics and Vids: The Art of Meeting Men

I'm taking notes because I need all the help I can get. So, it's cool if I stare at a guy and spill a drink on him as long as I have a wacky shirt on, am holding a teddy bear, and wear crazy earrings? DONE! I mean, what do I have to lose at this point? A re-run of Dallas and a pint of ice cream?

I've been hitting on shy men for years and I'm still single. Perhaps I'm just impatient. But I do love me some pints of ice cream!

At 1:30: "80% of men have been shy at one point in their lives."

Does this mean that 20% of men have been shy at two or more points in their lives?

Or that 20% of men have NEVER been shy?

I'm just glad to hear that my strategy of learning the names of local sports teams in case some extroverted woman unexpectedly attempts to engage me in conversation by mentioning the name of a local sports team or an individual player whom she finds attractive is an approved method that has been recommended by man-meeting professionals since the early 1980s! Huzzah!

Now, if I could only figure out an appropriate response for when a woman engages me in conversation by mentioning my small stuffed animal.

Eric, are you coming to my party tomorrow night? I wanna meet you.

Anna, I wish I could. I'm sure your V-Day Party will be a blast! But I'm experiencing an unanticipated, work-related scheduling bottleneck right now. Everything is overdue and piling up with great rapidity. People are complaining about me and exchanging emails behind my back. I know this all sounds lame, but it's the sad truth. It also explains why I'm reading your blog rather than doing my work. Besides, the fact that I don't even know where the Kyber is might be an indication of how out-of-place I would be there, even if I could find it. My sense of rhythm, on the other hand, and my high-school training in performance dance would have come in handy in the disco thunderdome. In any case, I wish you and all your party-goers the bestest Valentine's Day ever!!!!

BTW: If there's a chance for a rain check, snow-day makeup, rainout doubleheader, flight-bump rescheduling, or some other delayed-gratification event opportunity...I'll certainly be out of the doghouse by then and would happily attend with undiluted gusto! Alas, I realize that the current event was announced weeks ago, but my ability to waste time and otherwise confuse myself senseless know no bounds. Had winged Hermes himself been my guide, I'd still be standing in the same self-dug hole. **Looks toward the distant horizon, squinting bravely against the sunlight reflected off the virgin snow--and sighs.**
