I must blog this sometime.

You remember the young man I spoke of lustfully oh-so-recently? Yes, that’s the one, shivers down the spine, desert mouth, dickhead speech… I made a total prat of myself in front of him today. Though I think, after all, I’d have preferred it if he’d just made fun of me and laughed at the time. The gist of the story is this; I did something silly and small-but-irritating to my computer and, at the suggestion of another, asked his assistance. Being all male and stuff he was happy to oblige. And it was such a small, silly, lame little thing that I’m not going to share it with you, I’m too embarrassed. It’s also not the first time he’s rescued me from minor and pathetic computer problems. Sufficed to say, he fixed it in a nanosecond, gave the briefest of headshakes and funny looks, and walked away as I exclaimed, ‘I am idiot’. His body language agreed. The other two people in the room half-heartedly giggled at me, being friends they were more than ready to laugh at anything, and continued what they were doing. Then she, shit-stirrer, encourager of begging help called out to him, and I may be paraphrasing a little, ‘So good-looking and intelligent then?’
Without so much as thinking about a pause,
‘Yes.’
Three seconds later there cackled a trio of aging crones.

Haha! I got a girls number a few weeks back after a female pal of mine suggested I did it because said girl had told her she liked me, gave her a call, and haven't heard from her or seen her again. She vanished. Too bad. My pants-monkey is ever so lonely.

I'm not the world's biggest success with women, but I know you're not supposed to call it your 'pants monkey'...

Um, yeah, mhe...

Mark, what are you supposed to call 'it'? I found 'pants-monkey' to be quite amusing and, I suspect, a good indication of mhe in the sack :p

ilse, yeeeees. You can see why I wouldn't and won't [aside from the fear of rejection], right?

mhe said...

So, I say strange things! What of it!

Mark said...

Hey, all I'm saying is it's not a 'first date friendly' word.

mhe said...

So, I guess a good pickup like would not me "Hey, can I drop anchor in your harbor" then?

ilse said...

Hehehe... well, I can see why you wouldn't do it *sober*.

I think you need to make a sock puppet so that when he walks by your desk next time you can 'put on a show'/ 'freak the living shit out of him'...


Either way, laughs all round.

Merry Christmas, Nails.

Pirate pickup lines?! If there's a girl out there that isn't COMPLETELY TURNED ON by them, I don't even wanna meet her.

Arrrrr, I come to yee,

on all land or sea.

Er, Adam, did I spy commentary about your special lovely lady friend going to visit you in the land of queens? I think maybe the visit's overdue. Long overdue.

Yah, Mark, try it out and tell me how it works for you [remember, when you're laughed out of Perth the rest of Australia can hide you].

Tim, awwwwww.

Ilse, the sock puppets would freak me out! Hate puppets, nasty, nasty things!

mhe, the visual is just...painful...

Mark said...

wow, what a poet. That's great!
