Thanks for listening so well.

So, the woman did call me back this morning and asked me some questions about my fear. She said the way it would be set up is they would send a crew to my house to talk to me. They want to talk to Dante too, because they want to get his view on it, considering he's choosen to stay with me and give up having a biological child instead of leaving me to find someone who's willing to do it. He said, "I probably could find another woman who is willing to bear a child for me, but not one who would do that and still be as perfect for me as you are."

As far as women struggling to have children, I say so what because how does that apply to me NOT wanting to have one? When someone asks me what my biggest fear is, and I say pregnancy, and they reply with the fact that there are women out there that want children and don't have them, what is that supposed to mean to me in referrence to my fear? I know there are women out there that are trying to have children and really want them. I actually live down the street from a couple that have known my family since I was in preschool that can't conceieve and really want to. But still, I'm not them, and I'm not going to change myself or feel ashamed of my fear because of that. It could be the "you should be thankful you even can have a baby" thing, but again, that's telling me how I should feel about something that is entirely my own choice. I feel sorry for the couple down the street, I really wish they could have a baby because if anyone deserves to, it would be them. But still, that doesn't change the way I am.

And with family history of pregnancies, my mom said hers were all high risk (she was pregnant a few times before my sister and I. We actually have a half-brother that died shortly after being born, and there were other pregnancies that ended in miscarriage) so I know that mine would probably be high-risk as well. Which isn't much of a comfort.

The only person who hasn't been supportive about this is my sister. And the results of voicing her opinion made my MOM cry...not to mention pissed Dante off...she hasn't been back at our house since...

Hah.

My friend came to me last night with porn magazine, very excited about it's content, so I checked it out while he was sitting next to me and looked at me with a smile. He didn't wanted to tell me anything but a simple phraze "you have to watch it".

Well, the porn he showed me was a porn made by Rocco Siffredi, who also - no suprise here - starred in it. To those who don't know the Italian Stallion I can only say that he's a lengend and a man that every male should take as example - despite being a porn star he's a great father and husband that decided to take a 10 years break from industry even though his family was never displeased with his work. He came back just recently and...

...and he made this movie that I was watching, among many others. When the cameraman zoomed on the girl who spoke in polish language, I was in awe. Because I know that girl! Jet-black haired angel with piercing blue eyes that did those wild things I've saw on screen is working in a lingerie shop, less than 1km away from my home.

I looked back at my friend, stood up and told him to get dressed, because we're going out. To go to this ladies lingerie shop, of course. Very Happy

When we arrived, she was there. My friend and I had this stupid smile which she saw and she asked us what she may help us with. After all, two dudes in ladies lingerie shop attracts attention. So I asked her :

"Excuse me miss, but do you know, by any chance, a fine gentleman named Rocco Siffredi?"

Bam. Silence, wide eyes, a little loose jaw - jackpot, we're at home. After a little silence she replied "Nnnooooo" to which I smiled and leaned. In lowered voice I said :

"No? Because I think he knows you pretty well."

She frowned and whispered back, angrily - "What the f*** do you want?"

I backed off - "Why so nervous? We just wanted to praise your performance! Top A, boner-worthy!" - my friend started to laugh. She wasn't amused, in fact, she became a little nervous, because her boss started to look our way.

"Buy something or get out!" she whispered through almost clenched teeth.

I looked around, at the lingerie that was next to me and picked up a pair of white panties with pink lining here and there with my forefinger. I waved with them in circular motion around my finger.

"I'll buy them and I'll get out if you're gonna give me or my friend your phone number" I said and gave her a wide, Cheshire Cat-like smile. She looked at me then at my friend. She tore a small piece of paper from under the counter, scribbled a number on it and with the sound of angered rat-tatting of her heels she came to my friend and gave him that piece of paper.

"Here" - she looked at me - "I hope he's a lesser di** than you are".

My friend looked wide eyed at me, a little blushed with the sudden twist of events. Can't say I wasn't suprised either.
Anyway, I bought the panties I've promised to buy and we went out, but just as we stepped outside, we stopped before front window and I ordered my friend to call the number she gave to him.
After a little hesitation, he did what I asked him for and to my suprise she didn't gave us a fake or incorrect number because, as we saw, she picked up her mobile. My pal was a little startled for a while, but after a few seconds he asked her "are you free on monday evening?".

Guess what. She is. And they're set up for a date tonight. I only wish for my friend that she won't pull a number on him with some weird stuff and that she will show at least half of enthusiasm she showed on the porn she starred. I'd be lying if I'd tell that I'm not jealous a bit. Dang, I re-watched the flick and I'm helluva jeleaous, but hey - alea iacta est - the die has been cast, so I can only wish him best of luck.

And if something good happens out of it, oh, he'll owe me. He'll owe me good.

I'm sure she gets tired of jerks coming in trying to pick her up just because she's a porn star. Just because she gave him her number doesn't mean she has to, or will, sleep with him.

There is no such thing as "porn star" in Poland. Our society is too prudent, and the girl was evidently embarrased because someone knew - although she should expect that, the world is a small place. Playing in a porn is pretty much like being branded here where I live. Besides financial point of taking part in that kind of gainful activity, I don't see other positives.

And the sleeping part was just a wild thought. I honestly came there and acted the way I did, because it was a novum for me to actually know someone who did this kind of thing.

And my friend was yesterday on a date with her, he wrote me a text message about having a nice, albite a little typical evening with a girl, like he put that. Apparently, he couldn't force himself to ask questions that I would. And I bet it was wise of him to not do so. Very Happy

Anyway, I don't know the details, I don't think I'm gonna see him today, so who knows. All in all, the message he sent was kind of positive, thus I'm expecting a good ending or a positive continuation.

Still doesn't mean that you can come into her regular place of work and sexually harrass her. No matter what she was in.

332 Re: What shifts you smoothly? on Tue Dec 14, 2010 12:51 pm

Again, it's hard to show emotions and the atmosphere of that scene through the internet. Maybe some "hardcore" leftist feminist would call it a "sexual harrasment" and common folk would clap to it, because it is such a nice, sensationalist phrase, very front-page friendly one.
It was a flirt with humorous and an obvious and obligatory sexual undertone. It'll be a sad world where every kind of flirtous talk besides "you have nice eyes" will be branded as sexuall harrasment. Thank Xenu, some folk still have some common sense.

Besides, it worked. The girl is interested in that friend of mine, 2nd date is coming this Friday evening.
And he paid back for these panties I bought. Very Happy

Coming into a girl's place of regular work, a girl you don't know personally, swinging panties in her face and making references to a porn she did IS sexual harrassment. You even said it yourself "obligatory sexual undertones." She obviously didn't like it, or want it, from you. Any unwanted sexual advance is sexual harrassment. What you did was definately that.

And no, it didn't work. YOU asked for her to give YOU her number, which she did not do. She called you a dick and gave it to your friend, because he was doing the opposite of what YOU were doing and NOT sexually harrassing her. She also got money out of you. You spent it on a pair of underwear that you sure as hell aren't wearing. So not only did you fail to get into bed with her, but she got you to spend money. And this second date is coming because he is still doing the opposite of what you do. You said that yourself as well. He didn't ask her questions that YOU would have asked. I'd say that your friend is successful here because of NOT behaving like you. What's that say about you, huh? Frankly, I'm tired of you coming on here and talking about women like they're your personal sex objects. I'm also tired of being the one to call you out on it. I know for a fact that I ain't the only one who feels this way. I'd appreciate it if you'd knock it off. On both the other forums I go to, you'd have been banned a long time ago for this kind of thing. It amazes me that it's put up with so much here. To be completely honest, half the time I don't even think you're telling the truth about this stuff.

And I think it's NOT a good thing that people are accepting sexual harrassment as a norm. And no, not every kind of flirtatious talk is branded sexual harrassment. If it's unwanted, and expressed that it's unwanted, but it continues, it's harrassment. She obviously didn't want it, and that was more than flirting. Way more than flirting. Mentioning something, or asking about, or insinuating someone's sexual past when they are obviously NOT comfortable, and getting angry at you, is not flirting. A guy in one of my classes sent very sexually explicit texts to a girl (who has a boyfriend) also in that class, who has a history of being raped, and that made her very upset. Would you call THAT flirting and say that it's a shame he got in trouble for it? I should hope not.

That said, I'm leaving. I've had it up to my eyeballs with your chauvanism and NO ONE but me doing a damn thing about it. A forum that sits by and does jack shit about a sexist pig is just as bad as one that actively supports it.

334 Re: What shifts you smoothly? on Wed Dec 15, 2010 9:38 am

Because maybe you're the only one calling it sexist or chauvinistic. Maybe you're overreacting over these statements.
I don't belive male sex is better than female, so why am I being called chauvinistic? I don't belive males have higher intelligence or morality than females, so why am I being called a sexist?
It's easy to toss slogans that are repeated over and over again in daytime news. And, hey! It's trendy!
But maybe it's me that is mistaken? I don't know, but I'd like to know. I'm jealous because of the certainty you have. I need to find someone who'd teach me how to give things, acts and emotions a black and white label.
Oh, how easy and pleasurable my life would be if I'd have that trait!

And things are fine on this forum. Only a certain raisin is being picky.

HHHm...

I appreciate a good woman or man for who she or he is. In friendship and further. But I still find the trick Pietja did there extremely good executed. He wasn`t aiming for a "treat" for as far as I can read here. It could have 3 outcomes: She gave HIM her number. She gave his FRIEND her number. Or she could simply not give her number to either of them. The fact that she still sold underwear makes her a good Saleswoman.

It's sunday morning and I've recieved a call from that friend of mine, a call which was a report on "how it's been" on the saturday night date.
Let's just say that they ate their breakfast together. Cool

And that set me up for a good mood today.

As for yesterday, which should be a day of doom for me as always before christmas eve, I went to do some presents-hunting. To my suprise, I've finished it quite early, when normally I sit in a bookstores, malls, specialization stores for half of a day. And I didn't spent that much, yet, at the same time each present that I've bought is a good one - I believe that nobody will be dissapointed.

So, christmas shopping duties are off my shoulders, thank heavens.

One thing - I became a certified bartender. By the best bartending school in my country and one of the best in Europe. In event - I've bought shietloads of different spirits to practice more in home - and while the results are more than satisfying, somebody has to drink my works. And I'm afraid that, most of the time, that somebody is me... not that I'm complaining. Very Happy
Second thing - been in a club last night, after a looong break. Despite my worries, my certain skills ain't so rusty as I supposed them to be. Wink
Third thing - I stumbled upon a certain forum for the "love-shy" people... despite feeling some sympathy, I just can't help myself but to smile at some posts and raise my eyebrows over some other. All-in-all, another time waster for me.

I don't know if this counts as shifting me smoothly, I'm still pretty pissed off, but anyway. I've started with university 3 weeks ago, 4 weeks ago I moved into my new Residence.
At first it seemed quite cool, I mean, it was rag, we were being initiated and having fun and whatever. Then classes started. Now 3 weeks in and still this shit hasn't stopped, I'm falling hectically behind on my work and these piss drunk seniors and the house committee member for first years is starting to piss me off with his demands of nearly always being in the res when not in class. I may not drink, I may not go out, basically, I can't do shit, not even study because they keep me busy with other shit all the time. Anyway, where was I?

So yeah. This weekend we were told to stay in. This could mean one of two things, either they are planning a mofo of a party and we are the clean up crew OR they are planning a mofo of a party and our initiation ends with us lying passed out in ditches across campus. If it is the latter, and I do so hope it is, then this shit is officially over and I can enjoy my life once more!!

PS, I am realizing that the res life might not be for me in certain aspects, but... it... might make up for it during the parties?? My res does have the reputation of being the drunkest res of 'em all.

Scaring teenagers.

Yep, it needs a little explenation via. backstory.

So, today(or tonight) my friends who like punk/hardcore music took me out for a concert of few local punk/hardcore bands and, obviously, there was some serious beer crackin' in public areas. Also, there were many teenagers that were waaay below drinking age, but who da eff cares, we did the same as them when we were at their age.
Nevertheless, after three beers, there was some space for another few rounds, so we went to a shop that was only opened via small window - because of the late hour. Safety measures.
We're standing in the line, few teenage twerps are before us and suddenly, two long-haired tweens took place next to them - obviously, they were friends.
Well, I had the situation under control - after all, I could just said some word and they would go back at the end of the line, but my friend treated it as some kind of affront and thus, voiced his opinion. At first, by staring.
But then, his brother saw this and he opened his mouth to the kids that were trying to snuck before me - "Hey, guys, my brother isn't happy about what you're doing, so you'll be better off if you'd get back at the end of the line or there'll be a serious case of whoop-ass going around here". He said that, IMO, in a playfull voice, joke, etc.
But I look at these two guys and their eyes got wide. They bent their heads, said "sorry" and off they go! They started to litteraly run. Away, 200 meters of pure running. I laughed out loud - it was brilliant.
Totally unexpected response. Made my day. And, we had a reason to go back in time with our memories when we had simmilar situations - we wouldn't stand back to no one and we got beaten quite a few times because of it. But it builds memories - and these guys ran for their lives. Seriously, it looked that way.

Teenagers these days - they have no verve.

Quoting Bob Dylan - "the times are a' changing". Very Happy
