On his desk were a coffee mug and a pile of reporter’s notebooks along with two giant computer monitors. For the past few months, I’d been having drinks at Longshots with different men at least twice a week.
Dozens of press-pass badges were hanging on his cubicle. I never stayed more than an hour and always made at least two trips to the bathroom.
I moused over his photo gallery and started clicking through. Drink in hand, I commandeered my usual position at Longshots: the overstuffed leather sofa in the back corner.
He had thick, dark curly hair and wore modern horn-rimmed glasses. You can’t make yourself that available.” But he’s so good-looking. It was dim but not too dark, and it was the one place in the bar that didn’t cast the kind of bad shadows that could add a week of sleepless nights plus another 20 years to my face.
In the next photo, he was out at an event, dressed in a black fitted shirt and dark slacks. Mench Tastic: I don’t have a lot of time to chat now. What do you think about getting drinks sometime this weekend? They must have suspected me of something, though they weren’t quite sure of what. A prostitute for men with a haggard-office-lady fetish? Just as I was taking a sip from my glass, I saw Mench Tastic walk through the door.
He was just under 6 feet tall and solid but not overweight. He seemed to recognize me instantly too and walked straight toward me.
In his About Me section, Mench Tastic wrote, “I’m a journalist, which sometimes means long hours at work but always means I have fantastic stories to tell.” Looking at his profile, I thought that I might know his byline. I rifled through the piles of paper on my own desk looking for my mobile phone. Since it could happen so quickly, I usually didn’t realize I was drunk until something bad had already happened.
Even so, we shared enough similarities in our personal and professional lives that it felt as if, even as strangers, we’d been a part of each other’s social circles for many years. It could take just one strong drink for accidentally drunk and unwittingly aggressive Amy to rear her ugly head, and the bartenders at Longshots were too unpredictable to entrust with this very important first meeting.
He was asking thoughtful questions and paying attention to the answers.I mentioned that long ago when I was a reporter, I’d used a pocket scanner I bought in Japan to make copies of documents.He’d been using a digital camera to take photos but thought the scanner was a much smarter idea. All the stuff to adjust is in the reddit link sourcecode posted above. Sadly hamburg doesn't have alot of girls in my age range. But I'm heading to a small town in the mountains for a couple days so I won't have the script running in a groove.I was sitting at my desk at work when sent me a similar reminder message, this time highlighting Mench Tastic, and his profile immediately grabbed my attention. I sat through a client meeting discussing the usability of a website, and all I could think about was his photo gallery. I looked at my watch more often than I should have, waiting for the meeting to end.He was 33, was a nonsmoker, and said explicitly that he wanted kids. We finally wrapped up our discussion, but without enough time to head home first, I went straight to Longshots and decided to wait at the bar for him.Site ranking is based on torrent sites' traffic ranking and user ratings.It was now July, a few weeks since my date with Jim, the weed smoker who refused to split our dinner bill.Even in the dim lighting, I could see that his olive skin had a healthy glow, as if he’d just been to the beach. Jay removed the messenger bag from his shoulder in one smooth movement and put it, along with his coat, next to my gigantic bag on the couch. He’d been on a deadline that day, working on a story about how a city councilwoman may have misappropriated campaign money for her own personal expenses.With his black pants, dark blue button-down shirt, black overcoat, and messenger bag slung across his chest, he looked like he’d walked right out of a J. He’d managed to get a coveted interview with one of the investigators, a primary source, which meant that he’d be able to go through documents together with the councilwoman and have her explain what the audit showed.
