I know this is an international Forum, and Independance Day is an U.S. holiday, but thought I'd share my composite fireworks photo with everyone. I used several of my digital pics and combined them onto one image. Enjoy...

Ya wanna hear about what I didn't do today. I am sooo stupid. Well, I decided to take a nice little cruise in the Batmobile. The plan was to drive around all the parks I could think about and check out the holiday festivities and take some pics.
Halfway through my afternoon cruise, I stopped for gas and bought some chips and Mountain Dew. A couple ladies were working the cash registers, one who starts chatting and joking with me. Probably only a few years younger than me, with a nice smile. She tells me that it looks like I have just bought OUR picnic supplies. *smile*
Was she just joking around or flirting? I finally manage to say, that it must suck to work on the holiday or something dumb like that. They both smile...oh, we get off fairly soon, one says. The other tells me, just in time to PARTY!
The first one tells me, I was just telling her about all the great food I was bringing to the lake. I looked down. No rings. I finish paying and look up. They are both smiling at me. I try to say something, like what lake are you going to, or anything just to make conversation. I froze up big time.
I finally muttered thank you and left. I sat in the car for a few minutes trying to get the courage up to go back and talk with them, but couldn't. Damn! *banging head on wall*
Oh well! Happy 4th of July anyway.

Batboy... try some positve self reinforcements. Look in a mirror and say "I am a lady killer, I'm smart, charming, single and employed." Keep repeating that. And don't beat yourself up. That mini mart will be there tomorrow, she will (hopefully) still work there and still be interested. Go get em tiger!

Batboy, Ya need to loosen up a little Bro! First off, You are NOT a loser. Give yourself more credit than that. GTGirl and me think you are one of the more engaging personalities on this forum. We are always interested in what you have to say, be it tech answers, an opinion, or maybe just a little adventure in your day. It's true. As a matter of fact, I believe it was your encounter with a Fiero Lady on the highway that prompted Kristina to introduce herself to this Forum in the first place! You have a great way of communicating what you are trying to say, so that is definately a step in the right direction. My opinion (and please don't take this the wrong way, no offense is intended) is that you feel you've been out of the "singles" game for so long, it's a hopeless cause, Why try ? Batboy, PLEASE don't let this kind of thinking bog you down,man! You are way too great of a guy to let that'mind game'hold you back. Life is too short, we need to find what little happiness we can to help battle all the negative energy that pervades our world today.
"Banging head on wall"........gotta be a better way to find an answer,eh? Forgive me if this got a little too personal but you really are an upstanding guy and I don't like the thought of you kicking yourself.
Just relax at your next social encounter with an attractive Lady, take your time and be yourself and I'm sure she will find you just as entertaining as we do here on the Forum!!
man... I have a TON of stories just like that one.. most recent one was a couple weeks ago, when I was in a campus bar and a really really REALLY cute girl bought me a drink.. (iced tea.. I don't drink alcohol) and wanted me to dance with her.. I don't know how to dance though.. (only slow dance.. and it wasn't the right kind of music for that. heh.. it was techno..)
anyway, I won't get into the details.. but I was kicking myself afterwards for not offering to buy her a drink first.. with any luck I'll see her again at school in the fall, and then I can act right.. instead of being a chicken and not saying anything... I still don't know why she was even talking to me.. I figure it was fairly dark in there, and she'd probably had a couple drinks already.. (no, I don't have a lot of self confidence.. at least you guys all have Fieros. I can't afford one yet. hehe..)
and batboy, just think of this.........you are smart enough and so much of a winner (not loser........) that you had the power to change the topic of this thread from something completely un-related............go back in there and flirt back!!! show your magnetism!!! and you may just end up with that picnic with her yet!! (by the way, would you grab me a six-pak while you're there??)

anyone wanna help me??? I suck at getting even one date, what girl likes fieros, but motorcycles. Im the, nice guy finishes last "line". I get the rejection lines, and you lose hope after a while.
I have a good friend, who is older then me, im 21, and hes about 40yrs old. An ex coworker. He loves car racing and fixes cars. It was my bday feb but he never got a chance to take me out for dinner because he always had to work. So last Sunday, He took me to hooters. OH my. And we had a waitress, and my friend says would you card him, and she says "yes". I dont drink anyway. I joke, i have to be sober so i know you dont charge to much. My friend knows i like Rocky, aka stallone. And he asks the waitress next time she comes to the table if she likes the rocky movies and she says yes, but not star wars. My friend buys me a calender, and i asked the waitress before we bought it, if she can sign it, and my friend also asked her if she liked motorcycles and she said yes. We get the calenders and she signs it, she actually asks how to spell erik, c or k, and shes asking what should she write, im telling her im your favorite customer, and you will never forget me, both of those things she wrote down, when i get the calender, i also read, how about giving me a ride on your motorcycle sometime. She put Love rachel xoxoxo. When we left, she was waitressing another table, my friend passed her first, and then i did. When i passed, she looked at me then i looked at her. me being stupid, i should have said happy 4th or see you again. I thought about going back to the restaurant on friday, seeing if she wants to go to bugfest, its a vw beetle show in wisconsin, or just a ride. I tried emailing some hooter waitresses that work at the same place but they havn't checked it yet, aol is great. If i do go see her again, i can risk it and see if she says Yes im free, or hear, i have a boyfriend, im working excuse. I did make her laugh, and if that was a good thing jim carey would hold down a wife "my mommy states".
