Dumb Moment of the Night

So tonight the lady and I went out to a jazz concert in downtown DC. The music was nice and overall I had a really good time. We met up with some of her co-workers, so I was supposed to put on a fantastic impression. Everything was going smoothly aside from this one ditz who decided to constantly engage me in conversation and talk about how much she loved NY and hated DC and her job. However, everytime Mimi would join the conversation (her co-worker, and my g/f) she would talk about how much she loved DC and loved her job. Pretty funny.

Anyway, so I had a couple of glasses of san gria in me, and I happen to hear her talking to somebody else sitting at our table. He is talking about a recent vacation to Russia, and she responds with: "Vacation Rocks." So bearing in mind Mimi's desire for me to put on a good impression coupled with my San Gria intake, I look over at Mimi, give a thumbs up (what kind of an idiot still uses the thumbs up?), and loudly state: "Toys are Cool."

I mean who the hell says something like "Vacation Rocks." What kind of a response is that? "Toys are cool" is just as good, right? Anyway, I thought it was funny, after we left, Mimi did as well. Just thought I would share.

that's really funny...

and I also do thumbs up all the time. I'm always embarrasseed, but I can't help it -- and it's still better than the Finger Guns.

also, I'm a big fan of doing the thumbs down. It leaves people kind of stunned.

This is great, more people who can't resist the call of the thumbs up (and I agree the thumbs down is rare but effective).

i like the double thumbs up when combined with a goofy grin.

I love using thumbs for expression. Roman Emperors used the thumb to determine who would live and die in the arena of combat. So if it's good enough for an Emperor, of course it's good enough for me! (FYI: I'm a non-emperor.)

I also have fallen into the obnoxious habit of grading people and telling them the grade they received. I'm a huge fan of C+. (I'm a tough grader, but fair.)

I get the strong feeling that others dislike me intensely.
