I have off this week, which is nice. First Christmas break I haven’t had to study in two and a half years. Moon Rooster and Attraction are in town. Tonight we’re seeing the Disaster Artist. I already saw it, but I liked it enough that I don’t mind seeing it again. Attraction is now married and has a baby on the way, so no sarging for him. I don’t know what’s the deal with Moon Rooster. I tried to get him to come out and sarge but he decided to restring his guitar and spend all day at the gym. I called him out, said he’s weaseling, he didn’t like that. On one hand I get it. Sarging is hard, hard work and it’s not always rewarding. It requires a certain perseverance and iron constitution. If you don’t have all your other ducks in a row unrelated to pick up, it’s too much for some people. I remember back a couple years ago when I was living at home with my dad, going to school and working at Starbucks. I was a wreck. I was a man in transition. All that fucked with my self esteem and I couldn’t bring myself to sarge. I didn’t feel like I was bringing enough value. Now it’s different. My ducks are in a row for the most part. It took a while to get here, but I’ve arrived. I think Moon Rooster is going through a transitional phase so he doesn’t feel good enough about himself to sarge. Of course he’d never admit that, instead he’d use his defense mechanisms to make fun of me for sarging. Then again, who knows. How the fuck could I possibly know what goes on in the head of another man. I can concentrate on myself and that’s about it. Onto the sarges:
- Hot, slow walking Asian chick in a skirt. Figured it would be easy. “I know this is crazy –” I said and she cut me off, “No, sorry.” And kept walking.
- Another Asian, I didn’t want to have the first girl fuck me up for Asians the rest of the day, so I opened this one. She was giggling, I tried stacking, but it was kind of boring stacks, no teasing, after about forty five seconds she excused herself.
- Puerto Rican chick. She thanked me when I complimented her, but when I went to stack she realized what I was up to, said thank you in a very “this is over” sort of way and walked off.
- Longest set of the day at 7 minutes. She had this black jacket with brass buttons. I made up some stack about how it’s half New York fashion, half Civil War period piece, and that got her attention. We bantered about that for a little, joking that she was from the future, but she’s going back to the Civil War. Conversation flowed okay, I made statements, peppered in questions. I’m winging too much shit. I’m not prepared with DHVs and a couple of good open ended questions to get her talking, not to mention some qualifying stuff. Towards the end her feet looked like she wanted to go, when she did I disqualified myself saying it would never work between us. She agreed, so it kind of backfired, but she stayed in set. Another minute or two and I turned into a chicken and ejected from the set. Fuck me, why do I do that to myself.
- Don’t remember this chick. My recording calls this set “Bad Yad.” It was a blow out.
- This chick was hot with a capital Oh! She blew me out when I said “I know this is crazy,” but she turned around when I continued and said, “I thought you were cute.” She walked away. I’m wondering if I should have reopened her since she turned back. I’m still not comfortable doing that. I wonder if I’ll ever be.
- Asian high end fashion chick. Soft blow out.
- Another blow out from a hottie.
- This chick was most likely a model. She was too hot not to approach. I opened, she quickly looked me up and down, then walked around me. My yad stop was weak. There just wasn’t enough room in front of her for a proper one.
- I had seen this lady earlier. Glasses, freckles, long maroon jacket and semi see through shirt accentuating the black bra hugging her nice C or D cup breasts. Again, not enough room for a proper yad, so had to get next to her. Wasn’t enough, she smiled and walked away. Another one I’m wondering if I should have done a second open on. One of these days I’m gonna do that.
So that was it for today. Only decent set I got scared and bailed early. But even with as many blow outs as I had, didn’t have one stinger in the bunch. Except maybe the very first one, but even that one was not that bad.
Lessons for today. I don’t know. Tease. Stick to my where she’s from stack and tease unless there’s something so glaring about her I have to stack about it. Powerful yadstops. Need to figure out how to operate when there’s just not enough room for strong yad stops. Asked out Lebanese 8. Waiting for a response. If she gets back to me and we go out, this will be a day 2 or 3, depending how you keep score. Second proper date. She wears too much make up, but she has great tits. I’m hoping to get them in my mouth one day soon. We’ll see.
Lunch with an old friend from Hollywood tomorrow, so no sarging, at least not until late in the afternoon.
Feeling optimistic at the moment.
