desperate

okay... i want to take salsa lessons... but steve won't take them with me... i know they usually say things like, "partners not required" and stuff, but i'm too chicken shit to go by myself...

what do i do??? do i suck it up and make a fool out of myself in front of a bunch of people i don't know? or do i try to enlist someone (anyone!) into joining with me and then looking like a fool in front of someone i will have to interact with in the future???

maybe it just wasn't meant to be...

or maybe someone in bloggerland in the so. cal. area wants to join with me???? hmmm???? anyone? please? heh... *sigh*

what to do? what to do????

*sigh* i'm still at work because i have to archive my email inbox... i'm up against my limit again and it's a pain to try and archive remotely... blah, blah, blah...

so, tomorrow i'm gone to vegas... conveniently, CES is the same time as the AVNs... i think it's called the AVNs... you know, the porn awards. coincidence? i think not. it's going to be so fucking crowded, too... probably one of the busiest weekends... i mean, come on! 2 of the biggest conventions in the same time frame??? yeah... C-R-O-W-D-E-D.

i'm a little bummed because i had kinda planned on the drive out there and back as alone time for me... i really need it... but my boss is really paranoid about me driving by myself. he's afraid of me being stuck on the road by myself because of weather or something... eh, who am i kidding? he probably just wants to make sure i'm there on time. heh...

so i'm hitching a ride with this guy, matt. at least i like him well enough. he's a nice guy... i mean, it could be worse, i could be driving with the creepy guy who likes to stare at my boobs. even when they're completely covered. i swear, when they're covered, he tries even harder to see if he can catch any nipple action or something...

maybe i'll try and get some alone time the weekend of the 15th... this weekend, a friend of mine is spending the weekend with us :) even though i need the alone time, i'm looking forward to it. since she finished grad school, i haven't really seen much of her... stupid career. :P she and i have been friends now since we were 10. and even though we don't have much in common, we're still close... if we don't talk to each other in months, if one of us calls the other, it's like there was never a gap.

she's a good catch. and she's single. and really pretty. lemme know if you're interested :P she's going to fucking kill me when she reads this. i found my new job: Pimp Extraordinaire. hehehe...

yes! done archiving... finally. i don't know if i'll be blogging much... so, everyone have a good week... and a great weekend! :)

I want pictures!! Of your hot friend, yes, but also of the AVN's. That place has to be an absolute freak show. Be sure to take as many pictures of cross-dressers as you can. And have fun! I'd offer to salsa dance with you, but distance prevents it. It took me almost 2 years to get someone to learn to swing dance with me.

You know, Grace, I think it's too much of coincidence that you'll be in Vegas when the Porn Awards are being announced and you're trying to "sell" your girlfriend. :P

Seriously, I hope you're able to have some fun in Vegas. At least puddlejump once while your there.

Maybe Matt could take salsa lesson with you? Or maybe you could just tell Steve that Matt offered to take salsa lesson with you??, Maybe he would change his mind?

I think possibly the creepiy guy's x-ray vision is failing him, thats why he has a hard time seeing thru your shirt. Next time he stares, look down and say, "What? Do I hvae something on my shirt?" Hopefully that will embarass him!

Have fun in Vegas!

well, if you really wanna embarrass Mr. Creepy Guy.. next time he's staring, look him in the eye and ask if he saw anything that interested him! an ex- of mine actually did that once!

then again, he might actually reply to that.. so maybe you don't wanna do that!! :-))

cunlin: will keep the eyes open for freaks :)

jeanette: i hope i have fun, too... i'm afraid it won't happen, though...

sis: no... we're not friends like that... he's a work acquaintance. and i'm sure his wife would never go for that.

sau: i would never say that... i'm serious. i really don't wanna hear the answer to that. eep.

Take the dance lessons. Those people will never see you again so it doesnt matter how goofy you look. But I doubt you'll look goofy anyway.

I would love to take salsa lessons! If it weren't such a long commute, I'd sign up with you.

I also would love to see those AVN awards, just once. Can you imagine someone getting the award for 'Best Blowjob'? How can you not laugh?

Have fun in Vegas. Good luck with the new Pimping career.

My friend Jessie is going to CES actually! Anyway, Kelly keeps dropping hints about this Fred Astaire dance studio which is in a strip mall a few miles from my house. Get one lesson free! So, i am sure she feels the same as you, because i don't want to go either!

hi gracie baby. so i am coming...maybe we can go to salsa this weekend. oh hun..don't worry..the guys are usually too nervous to notice anything else. if the girl is a hottie like you...they will really be concentrating on the steps...trying to not look like an idiot...enjoy. Or..just take a shot of something before you hit the dancefloor. that's what my italian teacher did. (: ps. call me ...i have a favor to ask.

When you're a famous salsa dancer, please don't star in any horrid movies, like the American version of "Shall We Dance." Good luck finding a partner! I would reccomend a gay guy with good rhythm. If I run into any in the near future, I'll hook you up.

don't go salsa dancing by yourself. i bet there are a bunch of single freaks there. then again, i've never been salsa dancing so i don't know. the whole concept of dance lessons...i just can't get into it. maybe i'm too anti-social.

go by yourself! don't go by yourself!

damn it! i'm torn!

cece: i will SO look goofy. the only time i really looked good salsa dancing was at the sound factory in san fran. there was this room that was just dedicated to salsa and this man was dancing with me. he was just leading me to hip-swaying heaven. and he was so nice. the only man there that danced with me that didn't try to cop a feel or steal a kiss...

yb: i know! and ... the award... for best girl on girl on girl action goes to....

ab: you'd better go with kelly. sheesh. if i can't make steve go, i'm going to bug you until you do.

so, anyone want to know what byh's favor was??? muwahaha...

jer: thanks... i need help...

le: i'm def not going for the social aspect of it. i'm not social either. i just wanna learn. i had fun the few times i've gone... i just want to NOT look like a jackass....

That weird guy must have been bottle fed. By his uncle.

Salsa lessons, I'd give it a go if I were there. Need to improve my dancing. *Any* kind of dancing. My dancing ability kind of ended with the Happy Monday's shuffle...

HA!.. Good for Steve. I wouldnt go either, salsa dancing is for the gays. If you want him to go to dance lessons you need to pick something cool....like break dancing or Electric slide lessons.

Hey... so whos this hot friend that you speak of?? You holding out on me Grace!!???

Ask Steve if he would like to see you Dancing and Running your hands down a stranger-man's sweaty back.

My sis and I took Salsa for a quarter... and we quit. We couldn't bare tought and rubbing against other people (and each other's) sweaty palms.

ewww, sweaty palms. ok, wayne has convinced me...no salsa dancing for me.

I agree with Jeremy... definitely go with the gay guy ;) They're a lot more fun when it comes to dancing and you can talk shit together about all the other people there :P hehehe

what is it with everyone wanting to take salsa lessons these days? people where i work have been talking about that since before christmas. stop it! stop it! stop it! mostly because it always gets that stupid 90s dance song stuck in my head

"everybody salsa!!!"

gah.

make sure you end up at the right convention or you might end up with some interesting group participation events.

Salsa: find a girlfriend to go with. they'll be plenty of guys there and everybody takes turns dancing with everybody else. you and gf will have PLENTY to talk about afterward. but if you go by yourself you'll wonder - does that weird guy with sweaty palms grab every girl that way or am I just imagining things?" Think of it like dancing with insurance. or go to CL and find a guy partner there. I did swing dancing at this place that has lessons and live bands - it was a blast.

Vegas: looooove vegas. where are you staying? and suck that you don't get to enjoy it. but somehow i think you will find the time.

Mr. Creepy dude: I like to play this game with people when they're distracted by boobs or just generally not listening. start gradually trailing your story off into a weird direction and see how far you can get. eg. "Do you have those q/c reports - i need them for the collating I was going to do on top of the office table later, but I am not sure how hard I should do it. I was thinking assistance with a machete would hlep, but then again some mayonnaise and staples could do the trick - that is of course if you don't need to copulate before your pocket pencil is apt to bust it's lead from all that pressure you got stored up. Man, it really looks like your eyeballs are going to explode." See, I lost you all already. Now stop staring at my tits.

man, being social really drains me... i'm so fucking tired, but now i can't sleep. and i really need it because i need to get up early :(

aw, ian, it can't be that bad!

lar, i don't know if you met her. i don't think she's your type, though...

wayne: i don't think steve cares! hehehe. he's the least jealous person i've ever met!!! EVER!

q: i don't have any gay guy friends down here :(

cat: i've wanted to take salsa lessons for a long time now... :( just never got around to it!

mtmt: staying at the mandalay. highly overrated. and i really wish i could say that to really creepy guy. i hate my workplace.
