Well, I decided that I'm going to get out there and meet people. I posted a personal ad on craigslist.com and got a myspace.com listing http://www.myspace.com/jazzyjynx. Within two hours I had 10 emails (two of which were jerks). Just 16 hours later, I've received over 30 emails and I'm chatting up a storm. I just emailed a guy from NY who is relocating here. I figured he could use a friend to show him around when he gets here. Don't worry mom, I'm being careful.
But doing the work I do, I don't get to meet very many people. When I worked in retail, I used to meet a lot of people. I was able to get over being shy whenever there was a counter between me and the customer. I'm not as shy as I used to be but I'm still nervous about talking to people, everyone wonders what it is you want from them. Here in Atlanta, a lot of people are suspicious. Are they like that everywhere? I think I just need to move out to the country.
Working in retail, I've realized, I had a lot of guys flirting with me all the time. It's been years since I had that kind of attention, kind of deflates a girls ego a bit, but getting 34 emails in one day has really put a little bounce in my step. Now all I have to do is limit the addictive on-line behavior and encourage the writing o' the screenplay. It's a lonely job but someone's got to do it.
So how was Father's Day for everyone. Happy Wishes go out to all you fathers out there and especially to my step-father who gave me (and my brother) a wonderful compliment this morning and to my brother whose helping to raise his fiancées daughter. And to my Dad, where ever he is, Happy Daddy's Day, love you and miss you.
