WORKSHOP! ~and~ Maybe I need to stop GotD Challenge…

Workshop is this weekend!  I am amped!  Me, Walter and Dan are gonna run the best, tightest workshop TO DATE!  I am jealous for our students…

~ ~ ~

I was reading about my astrological sign (Gemini), and it had a list of problems that Geminians will face: 

PROBLEM: You may have the problem of not being able to keep a spouse or a lover due to your pursuit of the opposite sex.
SOLUTION: Cultivate the habit of not flirting with every attractive person you see

>Maybe the planets are trying to tell me to stop the Girl of the Day challenge!

GotD Day 3: earphones

I thought this was gonna be a bad day… but then it wasn’t!

I saw my girl of the day over lunch.  She was walking down the street.  I caught up to her after a block, “excuse me…” she kind of jumped, but took off her earphones, I told her, “I didn’t mean to scare you.  I know this is random, but I have to tell you that you are really cute..”

She lights up, says thank you.  I told her that I have a rule that I have to tell the cutest girl I see each day that.  She thanks me again, and then she got going.

Today is a YES. 67%.

GotD Day 2: NO :(

Man, this day was just a lousy day.  I was stressed with work, didn’t really leave the office, then went home, had a couple beers and relaxed.  

I think the hottest girl was in A.G. Farrari foods.  She was leaving as I was checking out.  She wasn’t hot in the traditional sense, she was cute and she had an alternative look.  I kind of psyched myself out, thinking she wasn’t the hottest I would see, but then nothing else really appeared that day.  Lesson – DO NOT THINK AND DO NOT HESITATE.  IF I SEE A CUTE GIRL, GO FLIRT.

I am NOT losing this competition.  I am at 1 for 2, 50%.

GotD Day 1: YES

My first girl of the day was at lunch. I saw a girl earlier during my coffee break, but missed her because she was walking into a building down the street. Damn. So I was out on my lunch break with a buddy. He knew about the challenge, so he knew I might go running off at any time. We were walking to the Metreon, and there was a guy and a girl sitting on a bench. And the girl was tall and blonde and super cute. I walked by, then looked at my buddy. “That might be her… yeah, I think that’s her”. I walked back, interrupted, told her she was really cute, and I’m sorry to intrude, and wished them both a great lunch. They were both really happy.

So I was relaxing, eating my lunch.

And then she walked out of the next restaurant over. Continue reading

Girl of the Day Mission – Introduction

At our Pickup 101 instructor roundtable meeting last night, Lance mentioned the Girl of the Day Mission. At the end of each day, you ask yourself, did I approach the hottest girl I saw that day? The hard part of this is that the hottest girl is THE hottest girl. Not just A hot girl. It doesn’t matter if she is driving, on the third floor of a building, running down the street on fire, etc.

All of the instructors have been challenged, and we are gonna compare results. This has a few big benefits: Continue reading

FR: Time To Hit The Sac

I was shipped up to Sacramento for my day job, so I gave my buddies (and fellow coaches) Eric and Jeremy a call so we could hit the town on a wild Tuesday!

We meet up and head to a nice mexican restaurant, we sit outside on the patio. Next to a table of cute girls. So of course, I start flirting with them. I just slide my seat back till I am near them and rip off some banter. Our waitress shows up, and Eric and Jeremy are flirting with her. It was quite an extravaganza!

Highlight: at one time, I took a big bite of my big jalapeno pepper, and my mouth starts to BURN. Our waitress comes by, so I ask for some water as I wipe away tears. Continue reading

Lunch Mission: You Are Really Cute

I have a new mission.  It is to get good at meeting women around the financial district during my lunch break, and being able to set up a date/day2 with them.  I have had a lot of strange thoughts about flirting with girls around work that kept me from doing it in the past.  I don’t like how I am dressed, I am in work mode, etc.  That is about to change.

I started today.  Walked to Jamba Juice and got a nice juice.  Walked around Justin Herman Plaza.  Then I saw the blonde hair.  And the great figure.  And, oh, crap, she had a really cute face.  I was gonna approach, then got nervous.  Yes, I still get nervous sometimes when I am about to approach a woman.  Ok.  I collect myself and think it through.  If I DON’T go talk to this girl, I will NOT forgive myself.  If I DO go talk to her, even if it goes badly, I will be happy about it.

So like I tell my students to do all the time, I started walking, and I just didn’t let myself stop.  Continue reading

FR: Messing With the Power of Drunk Fu

“How I impressed my friends”

[note: this is a report from a few weeks ago, reposted to get things started]

Some old college buddies of mine got together for a reunion this weekend in San Francisco. It was our yearly get together to keep the bonds of friendship strong. We were also out in North Beach Saturday night, and there were some pretty ladies, so I couldn’t resist.

We were out to DRINK and have a grand time, so this story has the underlying theme of my being drunk throughout. Now, usually I don’t endorse drinking a lot with socializing with ladies, but was more happenstance than anything. Continue reading
