It's been a great few days.
Valentine's Day was fun. I went to a Singles Mingle thing that a local fm radio station put on. Its where if you are SINGLE than you go MINGLE and hope you find someone that makes your DINGLE-berry TINGLE.
I arrived and blah blah blah drinks and blah blah fun and blah blah everyone loves me and blah blah blah saw people I know and blah blah blah told jokes and blah blah blah drunk Asian girl tried to hold my hand all night and blah blah blah exchanged business cards with a 47-year old man who divorced a stripper and blah blah blah ate Whataburger at midnight with DP and blah blah blah.
In the middle of all that great blah I heard my name called through the loudspeakers.
"Mike Conti...you won a door prize...Mike Conti, come get your door prize"
Me, a winner! I went up to the WINNERS ONLY AWARD ARENA and claimed my prize. I was hoping for a new Mazda Miata or free Chik-Fil-A for a year, but instead I won a yellow bag that was filled with unknown things.
I hadn't even looked through the bag when a group of drunk hot girls called me over.
"Hey Mike C (they read my name tag), come here! What did you win?"
"I'm not sure, actually. Let's check it out (I dig through prize bag). I got a t-shirt, some koozies, the new Shakira CD, and the DVD of 'In Her Shoes' featuring Cameron Diaz."
(tall, hot girl takes over)
"That's a girls bag! You can't keep that! Give me the Shakira CD! You don't listen to Shakira! I want it!"
"No - It's mine! I listen to Shakira. She sang that Whatever, Whenever song, right?"
"Oh come on! Give it to me. Please?"
"Well whats in it for me?"
(leans in and gives me a kiss on the cheek)
"A kiss on the cheek! What are you, my aunt!? You're gonna have to do better than that! Shakira is make out material."
(tall hot girl thinks a moment, gets approval from friend, and gives Mike Conti an enjoyable Valentine's locklip)
"Enjoy your Shakira CD."
What was even more funny was the drunk message I left her later that night. It was along the lines of:
"Hey its Mike, the Shakira guy. Hey listen I went home and got my Celione Dion and 10,000 Maniacs CDs. Do you like them? Please say yes."
It was a good time. Some other good news:
-I ordered a digital camcorder. My plan is to shoot some shorts and post them on the net. I think it will be fun. And funny for you, the viewer.
-Soon I'll have a new computer. My buddy JGro is making me a playaplaya comp for a bargain. Will be a HUGE upgrade from my 6-year-old-HP-Windows-98ing-machine.
-I planned a vacation. Me and some buddies are going to be in Daytona Beach, FL for a few nights in mid-March. You guys (and by guys I mean girls who look good in bikinis) should come! Has anyone ever been to Daytona? Help me out...I've never been and would like some info on what to do, what to check out, etc before we head down there.
