THE GAME

So anyway it's the wee hours and my belly decided it was cold and hungry...So like a good Goldilocks bear I am brewing some porridge- asian style - RICE - of course -yum :)

So in the meantime I shall distract from my impatience to eat with the blog :)

So anyway, at a time when I am just completely overawed :p by the charms and conversation of local men, just wanted to share with you one of the FUNNIEST things I have come across in a long time.

THE GAME is a book that first came to my attention in the tangible world when Toyboy got given it for his birthday last year. In any case this ever psychologist and cheap thrills amusante begged and begged if she could borrow it preempting that it would make for some great laughs. He said "after me" and then promptly left the country, lol...so anyway then I forgot about it...

More recently I was in the car driving with my mate and noticed it on the seat. He said he was about half way through- somehow I pestered him enough into lending it to me even though he was only half way through so I that I could read it NOW, lol whoever called me demanding was probably RIGHT heheh

So anyway I haven't had that much time but I have read a couple of chapters...and it's the FUNNIEST most hilarious hysterical stuff! For those who are completely not up with pop culture it's a fascinating insight into the world of the PUA (Pick-Up Artist) complete with strategies and a completely impressively original specialist lexicon for which the book helpfully provides a detailed glossary...

I think between my hermit antisocial lifestyle, the circles I mix in, the fact I don't hang out in groups of GIRLS, the places I AVOID with a vengeance and let's face it the fact that I'm nowhere near that 10 in the looks department- I have never met a Pick up artist- except ONE...by accident, a born natural...although I think he must have read some of these books despite being born a completely smooth player flirt PUA with an impressive haul of conquests both in quality and quantity... So anyway I'm not sure if it was intentional but I was cracking up when there were a couple of things I recognised as clever openings, LINES and whatnot but to the unassuming "uneducated" ignoramus you would never have known...

In any case I am proud to say even though perhaps the creativity and intelligence behind the strategy is admirable...I am completely PUA resistant. Although I may fall for the charms temporarily, never long enough for them to ever get very much out of me...maybe it's also cos at the end of the day I finally admit I am masculinely-rationally...superficial, lol and the reason PUAs become PUAs is cos they aren't that attractive to start with...I'm also resistant cos as a intuituve empathic- I can see right through people's BS almost instantly, but also cos I'm an unpredictable alien that has a unique skew in almost how I think and what attracts me compared to the average person my age.

I actually recall a conversation with the token PUA I have met about how utterly unattractive I find the locals...But Euros...completely different story! ;)

And he said very matter of factly...something along the lines of well yeah the Europeans are the naturals...the world's GREATEST lovers and wooers... it's part of the culture. And that is the sad truth...PUA communities are just for all the sadly charmless cultures...And the only reason PUAs exist is because they're the more unattractive in society and would be completely like a barren conquestless desert without these fake charms...

So yeah places like here I think have a fairly rich PUA density...however Aussies are lucky they at least have something going for them in the looks department thanks to our great environment and healthy outdoor lifestyles...

My German gf currently touring concedes this as well, but it's the ONLY thing she concedes where her country and continentmen may come off second best in general...

The interesting part is I noticed that this discrimination is not just me...ALL my girlfriends are the same...I don't think any have ever dated a through and through born and bred monocultured Aussie. And what is the underlying theme?

...VERY SMART girls :) It's like *yaaaaawn* after a few minutes of brain dead may-as-well-be--eating-cardboard conversations...

Actually I did that a lot as a kid, and even that was more exciting ;)

I think being with Steve for a million years gives me an aura of unavailability. I don't run into too many PUA's. Or maybe I'm just oogly

Firstly,let me thank you by the complement that you did on my falling trail of poetry.
To talk about The game book persuades me to read it. I'll try to get it. Meanwhile I'm still reading Youth by J.M. Coetzee. Soon I'll write some thoughts about it.

Respectfully yours...
