My tried and tested method from my days working at the local hole-in-the-wall used bookstore:

Say hello and smile when you spot him, then back off and "do work" unless they ask for help. When they come up to the counter, make conversation stemming from either what they're buying, or something about them. I used to throw around the old "You have very striking eyes" line when it applied. Ring them up. The hook to the line: write something brief, followed by your email address, on his receipt before you hand it back to him, seperately from his item so that he won't accidentally miss it and throw it out. Smile. "Have a nice day."

I swear it works like a fucking charm. [Razz]

I may be a bit clueless at times, but I have a feeling that would work on me perfectly. [Razz]

A bookstore?! *swoon*

hey-U: Heh...cute - I've never seen that before, actually.

Too little caffeine and too much work usually. The dragon's blood sugar is, as far as I could tell when we were dating, stable. [Razz]

Chances are, he wasn't even feeling snippy though. Just a wee bit startled. You, Rhonnie, are the last person anyone would expect to be posting about Burt Reynolds naked.

This bullshit tasteless analysis of dman's psyche was brought to you by Xanthine, the weary lab rat. All flames may be directed at her. [Wink]

But he wasn't nekkid.... he were wearing boxer shorts! [Eek!]

(And no, I don't like to see undressed men... or women; you're right about that, Xanthine!)

You're dead on Xanthine. [Smile] It was a reaction of "Rhonwyyn said what?!"

I HAVE A DATE!!!!!!! I was talking to a customer that comes in occasionally about various things and mentioned Cowboy Bebop. The hottest comic book nerd that comes in happened to be looking at the racks and turned with a look of pleasure and surprise on his face. I disposed of the other guy as quickly as possible and talked to my hot nerd for about an hour and a half. WOW. He's amazing, we have everything in common, and wow. We're going to see Constantine tonight, could be a total failure, but who knows? We even ran into each other this morning both wearing Legend of Zelda t-shirts, how perfect! Oh, happiness.

By the time I've posted this you are probably on your date...

So assuming you read it after the date, hope it went well...

Go get 'em, Tiger! And even if the guy turns out to be not so great, at least you're getting to see Constantine, which I've really got high hopes for. [thumbsup]

I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Semi-thread-hijack:

I used Demosthenes' advice today, in a way. In class today, the cute geek I sit next to was asking me about APA formatting on our papers. We were discussing it, but didn't have enough time, so I slipped him a piece of paper with my name/email addy/phone number on it and told him to contact me 'for help'. [Razz] We shall see....

So long as Burt Reynolds or the like isn't involved.

Best of luck, both of you.

Um, er.. that is... Would you mind giving us a little review on Constantine? Not details, just your opinion: good, bad, *Great*???? [Razz]

Where have you been all night young lady. I have been up all night worried sick. Go to your room and we will talk about this in the morning.

Well if the guy is really a geek, yeah. There's always time for popcorn *after* the movie. [Big Grin]

He is really a geek, we snuggled, but nothing gets in the way of my movies. No, I didn't get any... yet. I had to get up the next morning. The movie was okay. If you read the comic a few things are disappointing, the ending in particular (but only the last shot), and Neo actually did a pretty good job of capturing that "I'm a dirty a**hole, but that's really *your* problem" John Constantine thing. Yah, great date, good movie, and a new boyfriend. We totally hit it off. So, thanks for all the support and advice. Go see Constantine! It's a fine adaptation.
