Catch Him And Keep Him

I don't know who the heck Christian Carter is or, for that matter, what made me click on his link on one of those news sites. Maybe because something with the headline "Catch Him And Keep Him" just didn't seem very newsy. It kinda stood out against stories about Greece's economy tanking and occupiers occupying my patience. Be that as it may, Mr. Carter promises to "...give you the inside scoop on what men are really thinking..."

Well, maybe that's what made me click. After all, it's no secret what men are thinking...NOTHING!

That's right. If you thought the male mind was a complicated and delicate thing that you needed help to crack I've got news for you. There's only one thing on a man's mind. And if he's lucky he gets it once a week...SUNDAY FOOTBALL.

There's no need to pay Christian Carter (probably not even his real name) for his materials. I can tell you what's going through a man's mind...FOR FREE.

For example, Mr. Carter rhetorically asks "what goes on in a man's mind?" Hello? Like I said "NADA".

And he'll tell you the ten dangerous mistakes to avoid that most women make with men. I don't know about his list but mine starts with "Stop asking him what he's thinking!" Second: "especially during football."

Then there's the seven secrets to communicating with a man that will help create lasting love and affection. For me there's only one and it occurs during the football game: "Can I get you another beer and maybe some nachos, honey?"

And Mr. Carter says he'll share with you the five things women do that annoy men and prevent intimacy. For me that would include the four times I'm asked "What are you thinking?" and the lack of beer and nachos during the football game. Oh, if I were going for six, the flannel pajamas, cold cream and rollers would be added to my list.

And finally, Mr. Love Guru will share with you "inside tips" married women know about the tell-tale signs of a great guy. Now I like to think of myself as a pretty great guy and some of the things that make me great are that I eat with a fork and spoon (except during football); I only ignore my wife for seven hours, one day a week, except when she offers me beer and nachos; I don't watch Sunday night games, preferring instead to let the wife watch Amazing Race and Boardwalk Empire while I snooze on the couch after too much beer and nachos.

Hey, I just had a thought. I wonder if Kim Kardashian's been in touch with this guy?

The producer of this post wants to caution readers that this is a work of fiction. Any similarities to characters such as nonamedufus living or soon-to-be-dead is purely coincidence. Now I've gotta go. Mrs. D wants to wants to know what I'm thinking and I have to come up with a good answer...other than football.

Finally! The Disqus appeared. heh heh

And now what was I going to say?

Oh yeah, I don't want to know what you're thinking. HOnest, but really? No flannels?

That's just cruel.

hee hee hee

Of course you want to know what I'm thinking, Quirks. Why else would you stop by my blog every day? For my good looks?

Kim Kardashian needs much more advice than Mr. Carter can provide!
nonamedufus said…
Well put Meleah. I wonder if Kim incessantly asked her former love interest what he was thinking. For me, that'd be grounds for divorce.

I bet he doesn't know what most of us are thinking........ How much of a total d-bag worthless ass we think he and his thoughts are...
nonamedufus said…
But that's my point. Guys don't have thoughts. The goal of my post was to prevent women from wasting their money on this guy.

Dufus, you are a genious. If you wouldn't have said (twice) that you were giving this information away for free, I would have paid up to $1.00 for it. Because, really, who knew? One thing though, you might warn women that, depending on the guy, football can be replaced by hockey, baseball, curling, golf, lacrosse and women's beach volleyball. Actually, the women's beach volleyball can not be substitutued and is applicable for EVERY heterosexual man.
nonamedufus said…
A whole dollar. Boy talk about a missed opportunity. Men don't have to replace one sport with another. They can think of all of them. You're selling their brain capacity short, Nicky. Now I have to go watch women's beach volleyball.

Hey, Dufus! I've been away from the blogging world for a bit due to health related crap. I follow your blog and have won a couple of your caption contests. Woo Hoo! I'm back in the blogging world and have started a new blog which I think you might enjoy...or might not. Whatever. Anyway, check it out if you have time and look for me to be entering your caption contests again!

Sorry about the health issues. Been there, done that and now I have a t-shirt that says "I'm not dead yet". I visited your blog and love it. Nicely done. So welcome back Malisa. I'm following you. Others should too.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
