She says modestly and unbiasedly.

Granny Granny 4:16 pm 21 Nov 08

No, I was going to go there tonight, but I have been invited out for champagne to celebrate with some friends!

So Robbie will just have to wait for me ….

I look pretty darn fetching today, too.

Sorry, Skid, couldn’t get in there today as I had a last minute request to be a representative at this meeting.

*bites fingernails nervously*

Wish me luck!

Will do it though!!

Granny, how did you go?

So, did anyone find out, was this guy on the level and did he look like Haggred, or was it a “kick me” sign?

Granny Granny 12:26 am 18 Nov 08

Thank you, Radonezh!

He says he’s not ageist or shapeist.

Ageism, shapeism, socialism, communism….. “Beware the isms and osms”

For the record, i would dance with you, if I could could dance. 🙂

How is what he’s done any different from putting an ad in the personals section of the Chronicle (if it still exists) or on a dating website?

Granny Granny 10:30 pm 17 Nov 08

You will have to dance with me, Skid!

: )

Gee I knew I left one option off the list for finding a hot girl.. lol

Skidbladnir Skidbladnir 8:40 pm 17 Nov 08

But if its not a prank his workmates are playing on him, he should probably learn the coy and willing vs eager and desperate lesson, and he’ll do better next time.

Skidbladnir Skidbladnir 8:35 pm 17 Nov 08

Okay, i’ll admit I had a period of uncertainty and a crisis of confidence a few years back, I did do ballroom dancing for a short while a few years back, while getting over a very cruel woman, and found the next love of my life, before that rebound relationship died the natural death it deserved.

The tango and waltz are worth learning for weddings and for courting, but the most important part is knowing that the best (straight) male dancers are only satisfying the pretty ladies emotionally whilst at the dance hall, and ONLY for as long as they keep dancing.
The minute they leave it, they have to compete with the rest of us on ordinary terms.

Granny Granny 6:55 pm 17 Nov 08

Well, I am going to ask Robbie about that when I see him on Wednesday and tell him what you said ….

*tee hee*

As for ballroom dancing, if you have a connection with your dance partner it is the best feeling. It doesn’t always happen with the best-looking or the person you are most attracted to either. You never know who it will happen with! But I love trying to figure out what he wants me to do, love being led, love whirling and twirling in somebody’s arms, love that they have to make you look good! Love the playfulness and the fun!

But it doesn’t have to be ballroom – Ceroc or Rock ‘n’ Roll or Street Latin or Argentine Tango – as long as you dance it together.

Ballroom dancing is all about making up for the size of balls and tallywhackers.
Its why I never bothered learning to ballroom dance.

Granny Granny 6:16 pm 17 Nov 08

Doesn’t matter if you’re only dancing!
