Blip: Yellow Rain

Filed under: artwork,music,video — Tags: , , , , , — Alfonso Surroca @ 2:02 pm

I was just driving home this evening and rain and sunset mixed together to make everything cool and yellowish. I’d already taken more than enough photos at times like these, so I thought I’d do something a little different. Music is: Lamb – “Five”.

Missed Connections (Orlando)

Filed under: humor — Tags: , , , , , , , , — Alfonso Surroca @ 1:48 pm

As anyone who frequents Craigslist knows, the Missed Connections section is quite possibly one of the best ways online to laugh at losers in your very own neighborhood. Sure, one might hope these posts are jokes, lest humanity be that pathetic. These are just a few posts I found from my area (Orlando) on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

You took my Orange Juice recomendation at 7-11 Princeton/Orange – m4w – 26 (orlando/winter park)

well, you have a beautiful smile for sure and thanks for sharing it with me today, my morning went a lil smoother because of it, but yeah i was the blonde haired worker dude re-upping on ye old hydration and felt that maybe i could have started a lil convo, but maybe this will catch ya, yeah right, but hey maybe this could work you never know,

I’m not sure how far recommending OJ at 7-Eleven and talking like a reject from Juno was going to get this possible LARP enthusiast if he had the cojones to actually start a conversation with this convenience store customer. Somehow I think it’s for the best this guy didn’t open his mouth in public.

Betos Today 12:15 – m4w (Casselberry Betos)

You ate your lunch alone, which is very strange. Women who look as good you do, rarely eat alone. You sat so properly, a truely refined women. You wore all black, glasses, antique watch, and a diamond ring on you right finger.

Me – Black shirt, jeans, and Highway Patrol type sunglasses – smitten

I would be honored to join you for lunch, whenever you want.

For those outside Orlando, Beto’s is a local 24-hour taco shop known for being cheap and dirty—really, that’s one of the things that makes Beto’s so charming. What I’m getting at is, it’s pretty strange to see people who aren’t drunk college kids or blue-collar workers on lunch break at a place like Beto’s, and while the guy who wrote this seems to fit in, I don’t think the lady in question does. Beto’s and refined do not mix.

What can we take from this missed connection? Women, do not dress up and eat at seedy taco shops alone, or you might become stalker bait. In fact, just skip the seedy taco shops altogether. Your stomach will thank you later.

Girl in black hyundai – m4w – 19

You were driving in your black hyundai today on Alafaya. I thought you were really cute. I said some things to you on my PA and it made you smile.

Message me back if this is you., Long shot, I know :]

So cops use this too? Seriously, the only folks I see with PAs on Alafaya (that’s near UCF) are the half dozen State Troopers and Oviedo city cops that roam the area in search of college students to ticket. Or perhaps this guy had just finished a protest rally, or had a PA for ironic reasons?

Stuning deaf woman with dog at Playalinda – m4w – 43 (Playalinda Beach)

As I sat next to you on the beach with my female friend, you aroused me with your long, beautiful fingers as they signed to your partner. Your beautiful face, breast and figure were a sight to behold. I hope to someday see them again.

If you are interested, or if your partner is open, I would love to get together. The girl that I was with is very open, and also thought you were attractive. She tried to speak with you as you left, yet sadly, you were unable to hear.

Please, please be a joke! I really don’t want to believe that there are 43 year old swingers with bad grammar turned on by deaf women using sign language in this world. Wait. Actually, that’s probably the average poster on Missed Connections. Never mind.

Fun With Job Scams:

Filed under: business,work — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , — Alfonso Surroca @ 6:48 am

I’ve been in an employment dry spell lately, and decided to take the plunge and post my resume at HotJobs and CarreerBuilder (via Yahoo! and MSN respectively). It wasn’t long before I got results. And naturally, they were in the form of a scam.
