What's Next, a Cupcake Mixer at the Strand?

Just when I have a serious crush, God has begun devising "Singles Events" geared explicitly for me to entice me away from this potential relationship with a few ... obstacles. Witness: the WYNC Singles Event: Public Radio Lover's News-Quiz hosted by Brian Lehrer. I'm not kidding. The first time I heard this on the radio, I logged onto the WNYC homepage and couldn't find any info so I thought that my brain had actually made this up to try to trick me. But no, it's real. Will I attened? No, but only because it will probably be full of 30-50 year olds. Oh, but if I could believe there would be some younger people there, and that any of my friends would actually consider going with me, well, it would be a different story.

I know this would be really weird, but I heard the same thing, I thought the same thing. We should go together!

That way if there's no one under 35, we're fine.

I'll consider it. But according to your blog, you're a total dynamo and therefore not at all an ideal wingman for me. Being ignored at a bar while everyone hits on your pretty friend is one thing, but being ignored at a goddamn public radio mixer would be positively intolerable.

I think you should go even if there isn't anyone under 30. 35 isn't such a bad age for men - usually they've gotten most of the way through adolescence. Plus you'll always be younger and cuter than they are.

Right, but I alreay have a crush on a 34-year old...

That's funny 'cause I heard an ad on WNYC this morning that was like "Men, for the love of God please go to our singles thing. Only women have singned up. It'll be a freakin' field day."

That was the gist of what they said. And I thought: will this encourage men, or just scare the women all away?
Only time will tell.

I'm just on a string of luck, cupcake. Although I did piss off my wingman last weekend. But I can't help it if she a) doesn't really like comedians at a comedy club and b) scoffs at hanging out with Dave Attell. Yes, he's an old man, and definitely a B list celebrity, but he's so freakin cool. (And he'll buy you free drinks. I scoff at no free drink buying man unless he's 45 or looks like a date rapist.)

Back to the NPR thing. It sounds like a ton of freakish women are going, which could be fun from a people watching standpoint. All in all, though, I think you're right. Passing would be a good thing ---- since you have to pay for it.
Yet again, Satirius Johnson (sp?) sounds super hot.

Meg - what do I have to do to get you to call me next time your hanging with Attell?

Muk said...

your = you're (for you pedantic grammar types)

For the record, I'd probably even go on a date with Attell.

As long as he bought me a drink.
