I don't even have a "safe word"

I must be a masochist, that's the only explanation I can come up with.

I have yet another blind date tonight. My friends love to do these fix-up things, and, for some inexplicable reason I go along with it, and never has it worked out.

Am I picky or hard to please you sneeringly ask? Hmm, well ok, maybe just a tad.

But still. More than half the population of NYC is female, and there is even a bigger percentage of single gals than guys, so the odds work in our favor. But that doesn't matter to me. I can always find something to screw it up.

Now, the one and only time I actually arranged a fix-up for someone else, it led to the couple getting married! True story. She was a friend of a girl I was seeing at the time. He was a bud of mine. Of course, my girl and I no longer talk, but that other couple is happily married. Go figure. Hey, at least I have a better success record than some others.

We're meeting for appetizers and happy hour at a Cuban restaurant I've been wanting to try, so, if nothing else, some tasty camarones al ajillo and some mind-numbing mojitos will cushion all.

Vive la Revolucion!

Good luck dude. At least it's a new prospect, you never know ;-) As a new single, my friends have been absolute crap at setting me up!

You seem to go out drinking and eating a lot.

you must be a real winner if you go out on blind dates.

Hey anonymous, I go on blind dates too and so do lots of people. Your friends are the best ones to make a match, they know you best!

It figures you would go to a Cuban restaurant, so antiAmerican.

Oh, Bally 107.....thank you for the hearty laugh. I really needed it. Keep dancing for the monkey.

Oh, and let me know when you actually have a response to the other question I asked you on the abortion link. Or maybe you're not answering because all you want to do is insult people and therefore really not have to stand up for and defend your beliefs. I've noticed that when I try to have good, spirited discussion with people on our differing beliefs, a lot of them just resort to pathetic insults instead of having an honest, straightforward discussion. Now you're calling him antiAmerican because he dare not eat at Applebee's. Shocking!

Maybe if I keep reading JBK's blog, George's cronies might tie me up and interrogate me about my loyalties to our grand ol' country. MMmmmm.....now there's a fun thought.

Oh well not a hipster, I thought I had already answered you quite well. But if you insist, I will do it here too. Just because a woman is raped why should that matter to the baby. It's not the baby's fault that he or she was conceived by a rapist. Why should the infant be killed because the father was a monster. That's what adoption is for. Do you know know how many couples are desperately looking to adopt a baby because they cant conceive themselves? No, I didn't think so. You should do some research before you make such statements.

Hey, Bally, if you dislike JBK so much, why do you hang around? Oh, and I'll be sure to tell the 13 year old who's carrying her father's child to just "give it up for adoption." Yeah, that's it. I'll tell her everything will be ok because "god loves you." I'm sure she'll completely understand. Then I'll refer her to you to explain why, if god loves her so much, he abonded her and looked the other way.

Hey, I'd really love to read your blog. Do you have one?

No I dont have a blog do you? I didnt know you needed one just to make a comment. And you still didnt answer my question. Why should the little baby have to pay by being murdered because the mother was raped? No one can answer that. And I know you can't either or you would have by now!

Not a hipster said...

Oh, sorry you misunderstood. I never said you have to have a blog. I just asked if you did. I do have a blog that you can look at just by clicking the hyperlink on my name. I'll warn you though, I just started it, so there are only a few posts, nothing exciting.

Now, to answer your question. Oh, wait -- first, let me tell you that I don't expect to change your mind. That's not what discussion is about. I'm sure you also realize that you will not change my mind, either. But I'm also sure you already know that.

Onto the show: I can answer your question, you just won't like my answer. That doesn't make it any less valid, though. My answer: In this situation, the pregnant child comes first.

I don't know if you're married or have kids. Hell, all I know about you is that you're anti-choice. But, if your husband rapes your daughter and becomes pregnant, I would really like to know if you're such a monster that you would look your lovely 13 year old daughter, who will give birth to her own half-brother or sister, in the eye and say that you don't care about what will happen to her. That she MUST carry the pregnancy to term. Yeah, I'd like to see you try.

I'm also not going to take up anymore space on JBK's blog having this talk with you. I'm sure I'll respond to other things you might say, and I look forward to more great debates.

Hello, I will answer that if not a hipster isn't going to. It won't be a "baby" if the raped woman can take care of it the next day, it's still cells then. Or is the morning after pill also immoral in your eyes bally 107?

Why are you all talking about abortion? I thought you were going to talk about blind date?

How was the Cuban rest.?

Blind dates are the worse if your friends are clueless about your type. They can usually figure out what look you like, but personality is a bit more tricky. I gave up trying them any more, it leads to too many hurt feelings sometimes.
