Last night after a quick dinner at Chipotle, I went out for coffee with Kip (scarabbear
). We talked about a few of the issues in our lives, and dealt with a night that actually felt cool - moreso than the rather-warm for winter weeks we've been having around here. As we were getting ready to leave Dietrich Coffee kip asked me to drop him off at the Ripcord, and me in shoes that weren't sneakers, i felt like, what the heck, I'll go to.
The ripcord was as it always is, with a combination of good and not so good looking people. Jerry (goofycubb
) was running around with his shirt off, and for a while I was wondering if he even brought one with him. We ran into several people we knew, and a few I didn't. I finally got the chance to meet Pete (thepetey
) and Eric (musclemedic911
) and we spent some time talking about, what else, LJ. As they moved on, someone told me that they were both very focused on me...I'll attribute that to being the new person they were meeting, but hey, attention is good. I'll admit that they were a very attractive, and nice couple.
I actually was having a good time, talking to several people, lusting after a person I just met - a cute Hispanic cub that seems to be actually going out with an acquaintance, so obviously I couldn't move in and do too much, thought his boyfriend (if they've gotten that far) did make him pull his shirt off and make everyone around stroke his hairy chest. I'm thankful for that.
as the night progressed, there was a young man who was running around me in circles. I've seen him and talked with him before. He's nice enough, but when he gets drunk, he gets weird. Very weird. He's come up to me and told me I was cute and asked to kiss me before. No big deal to me, but apparently was to him.
On the flip side, i got lots of good comments about my new glasses and the longer beard, which was cool. Still, I'm thinking of getting rid of the beard's length soon, especially because it shows off my grey hair.
So drunk boy got up to me and tried to talk to me. I say tried as he mostly said "You are too beautiful" and would walk away. It was completely bizarre as he would come back and say "I can't keep coming up to you, you are too much" and run off again. He finally came up and gave me a deep, nice kiss, which i was fine with returning...and ran away again. Even his friends seemed stunned by his behavior.
It's not like the guy is bad looking, he's not, but he has that whole thing of trying to look casual, but knowing that someone took quite a long time to achieve that look. His outfit was put together, his hair was full of product and his goatee well trimmed. Here I was in my hoodie, having not shaved for the day. I guess it was kind of an opposite thing. i don't think I looked bad, but i didn't really try, nor was I expecting anything with an impromptu trip to the bar.
His friends were talking about his odd behavior, and switched to odd propositions that they had gotten on Bear 411, so I told them about the feeder guys I have been hit on by, and they were amazed. I was surprised that they hadn't heard about this. I can see as we're talking that the cute guy is still working around the dark room.
He came up and kissed me a couple of more times. He comes a few times more and hugs me, or rubs a hand across me. He pulled my shirt out and rubbed my back. Then later he comes over and tries to stick his hands down the back of my jeans - the tight Eddie Bauer ones - to try to grab my ass - or more. Luckily I had my belt cinched tight, so he wasn't able to get far before he gave up and shouted that he couldn't go on doing this. Very odd.
I think the moment that I thought it got to stalker...was as he was trying to hold me he (I was standing there like a post) he turned from side to side and said loudly, "Lou Rawls is dead!" It was that moment where the evening went from interesting to just being enough that I needed to get out. It wasn't that it was a bad evening, but it just frightens me that I get the drunken oddballs coming after me.
I said goodbye to people as the odd boy was away, though probably still watching me. I did get a kiss from the cute fuzzy hispanic guy, which made me happy, and I moved out the door. I was happy to see that stalker oddball boy didn't follow me on the way out, but you never know when you're being watched.
Still, I wasn't feeling odd and distant in the bar like I usually do, but it was an entertaining couple of hours. I guess I'm slightly more comfortable with being social in this biorhythmic wave.
Oh, side note: The Book of Daniel,
is bad. Not because of the reasons the AFA thinks it's bad, but that it's trying to be a copy of Desperate Housewives
, where everyone has a problem, and everyone has a secret, and that's their entire character. The church surroundings aren't a part of the problem, it's just a background. The characters are bad and unlikable, and I'm not sure if the show can make that work. if the show is canceled, it should be for that, not because people feel offended by something they aren't watching.
