Laurie (rowansilverwing) made a poll out of boredom asking people on the crack bored whether or not they would date her. This was yesterday. Kim (burgunder) talked some about her own impulse to do something similar, although she hadn't yet pushed herself over the hump. Anyway, I made an offhand comment to that I would do such a thing, mostly to find out if I had any secret admirers. Then I wandered off to a meeting here at work. I came back and hour or two later, and, lo and behold, Karri (insolent) had taken it upon herself to post one for me.
So now here it is a day+ later and I now have 9 votes from people who would date me, and 9 from people who "probably" would date me. Charles Manson still has only 6 votes in his poll. I was trailing him for a while and that just would not be good.
Here's the thing though, that's a lot more votes than I expected. Okay, granted some of them may be guys just messing with the poll. My own tally had come up with 3 people on the crack bored who would say yes or probably. I feel oddly fulfilled and popular.
I also want to go and figure out who these people are. Maybe I have wanted to ask some of them out. In fact, it's probably that I have, but that I have been too chicken-shit to do so.
So, given that I have been trying to find dates lately, should I just go on a date asking spree? I dunno. Just weird.
Oh, and there are 2 votes for "already have dated Phil." Which is just odd, considering that I've only dated one person who frequents the crack bored, although I have fooled around with more than that. Of course, it could be just someone with Darren's sense of humor. But there's the little voice in the back of my head that says there's a person not entirely in touch with reality who likes me a lot.
