#GOPPickupLines, in honor of VD (part 1)

A year ago, I boldly took my blackberry where it had no business going.

Namely, a blind date.

On Valentines Day (VD).

With a Republican*.

As Fate would have it, six months later I did find my current boyfriend, thanks to Twitter.  We met each other by accident, bonding over Chuck Norris and Wu Tang jokes, waiting for a big speech at a conference.  (I know, we’re dorks.)

But back to the trainwreck.

So in Part 1 of my homage to Twitter and Valentines Day, I give you archived tweets of #GOPpickuplines:

nerdette: ok peeps, I need #GOPpickuplines Any ideas? and no, I’m not wearing red tonight on my bipartisan #blinddate.

*My blind date played one on twitter, anyhow.

I’m trying to piece together what I could find of my blind date – so bear with me – it might take me until Sunday to pull it all together.  And I am seriously going CSI on this archival effort.  Let this be a cautionary tale to everyone – ARCHIVE YOUR STUFF! You never know when you’ll want to look back on your personal inanity.
