Hey, I got a receipt, though!
  Wed. 10/8/14 7:06pm P-90:

I've been on "date-cations", but I've wondered before what it would be to go on a vacation or travel adventure with someone I had just become acquainted with, and really hadn't gotten to know yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/8/14 7:09pm Ange:

Hi everyone!

Hi!

Hi Ange!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/8/14 7:11pm bobdoesthings:

I don't go on many vacations... and I can honestly say I don't think I've ever actually been on a date. As a 28-year-old this suddenly concerns me...

my toilets have wet vents. she'll know what that means.
Avatar Wed. 10/8/14 7:12pm Blunterson:

Hello!
  Wed. 10/8/14 7:12pm Ugh:

uugh
Avatar Wed. 10/8/14 7:14pm Callieflower:

Hii, Andrea! Happy to hear you're back and presumably healthier
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/8/14 7:14pm dale:

bob - spare yourself. especially if the interested party mentions children or disneyworld before you ask them out.
  Wed. 10/8/14 7:14pm P-90:

like her mock-Texas accent
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/8/14 7:14pm bobdoesthings:

oh yeah, was your bedbug problem exterminated?
Avatar Wed. 10/8/14 7:18pm Blunterson:

For people who don't do this sort of thing, what do they wistfully reminisce about when they are older?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/8/14 7:18pm Ange:

They came in for their 2nd bedbug treatment today... looks like Grandma is free of bedbugs, and I just got scared by a mosquito
  Wed. 10/8/14 7:20pm Ugh:

When will you get rid of the stds?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/8/14 7:21pm bobdoesthings:

@blunterson - I like to think back, wistfully, to how much I enjoyed alcohol.. and then I relive the memories.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/8/14 7:24pm dale:

she went along with it but the guy was stoopid? okay.
  Wed. 10/8/14 7:25pm lee:

Ugh.
Avatar Wed. 10/8/14 7:25pm Blunterson:

@ bob - Oh yeah, I forgot about all those memories.

Many of my ex-boyfriends are dumb guys
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/8/14 7:27pm JakeGould:

Man of my ex-girlfriends are just nuts! Why are all these dumb guys and nutty women out there? And I am the ONLY sane one. HOW! HOW!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/8/14 7:28pm dale:

we've all dated people below us intellectually but you don't advertise how much better you were after the fact. if you were that person then you were on that level at that moment. or you're a fraud.
  Wed. 10/8/14 7:30pm lee:

You can cut the narcissism with a knife. This is painful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/8/14 7:33pm dale:

"...a little less complicated."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/8/14 7:37pm JakeGould:

Lee, shaddupayoface.
  Wed. 10/8/14 7:38pm Robert:

Ange, when you say "for the story", do you mean for US? Because then it's a performance, and not sincere.
  Wed. 10/8/14 7:41pm Robert:

I did have a date once that I could sort-of say was for the "story". In fact, I even told the story 2 nights ago. It was an acupuncture date. I was dating a lady named Lina, just off the boat from China, and she offered to do acupuncture for my plantar fasciitis, which I happen to be suffering from again, almost 30 yrs. later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/8/14 7:43pm JakeGould:

There is another version of Andrea? Like Spock with a beard? And the agonizer?
Avatar Wed. 10/8/14 7:44pm Callieflower:

For the story normally just means something to tell your friends
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/8/14 7:46pm dale:

jake - meow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/8/14 7:47pm dale:

going out to look at the space station flyover for five minutes. i'm sure the man bashing will be continued.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/8/14 7:48pm Skirkie:

I wanna take that timid college version of me and slap him around.
  Wed. 10/8/14 7:50pm P-90:

@Ange: Did they bring one of those cool bedbug-sniffing dogs to confirm where the bugs were and weren't? When you say "scared by a mosquito," do you mean you didn't have them yourself, you saw a bite and figured you probably did?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/8/14 7:51pm bobdoesthings:

@p-90 like roscoe?!
  Wed. 10/8/14 7:52pm Robert:

But Callieflower, it's practically a performance if you're just telling your friends too. The only difference here is the size of the audience. There could be DOZENS of us!
  Wed. 10/8/14 7:52pm P-90:

Oh is Roscoe that famous beagle that's been on tv, etc?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/8/14 7:53pm bobdoesthings:

uh yeh!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/8/14 7:56pm dale:

this woman will never find someone her equal. because she thinks no one is.
  Wed. 10/8/14 7:56pm P-90:

That's universal, I think- what she just said about being around guys from time to time who were SO appropriate "on paper,' but not feeling that "spark" and not being able to fake it or conjure it out of nowhere just because someone is "theoretically" a great match.
  Wed. 10/8/14 7:59pm P-90:

So did she make it to Montreal?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/8/14 7:59pm JakeGould:

@Skrikie: “I wanna take that timid college version of me and slap him around.” Is that why you drove up and snagged Andy}s money?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/8/14 8:00pm Ange:

"For the story" often means "for the story I tell my friends" -- radio show is less than a year old!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/8/14 8:00pm Skirkie:

Honestly I just really wanted some money.
  Wed. 10/8/14 8:00pm P-90:

@Jake & Skirkle: HAhaha- timid no more! take that, college self!
  Wed. 10/8/14 8:01pm Robert:

But Ange, isn't that the same thing? A story to tell an audience?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/8/14 8:01pm JakeGould:

Skrikie, FWIW I literally said out loud, “lLook at that fucking yuppie in is Prius!” No disrespect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/8/14 8:01pm Skirkie:

It's actually a Kia
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 10/8/14 8:02pm JakeGould:

Okay, Kia. Sorry for misrepresenting your Yup-mobile!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 10/8/14 8:04pm Murakami Whywolf:

I've always considered intelligence to be the measure of your <em>lack</em> of need to have bad experiences in order to learn.

The more I hear, the more glad I am to be autistic, to have met my super-smart/kind wife when I was seventeen years of age, and to have never, ever, been out on a date---the institution seems designed to make men and women hate each other even more than would be the case from childhood brains-washing alone....

I also hate 'amusement' park rides.

Query: what if you get older, and start to really understand your own worth, and realise that it's even lower than you'd thought?
