Public Service Announcement

I got hit on today at church. That doesn't happen very often. But as with most things in my life these days, it was funny.

I was at the singles ward with my old DC roommate. We just sung the intermediate hymn. It was a good ten minutes after the song that suddenly the guy next to me passes me a note.
"You have a nice beautiful boice. Do you like to be in a choir?"
(spelling is his, not mine.)
I politely thanked him and waited till after church to speak to him. He shook my hand several times and said he would like to see me again.
He just forgot one little thing- to ask me for my name.

So this is my public service announcement for the day. Men, if you are interested in a girl, compliments will get you far. No question about it. But if you really want to see something happen, always ask for her name. Trust me on this one, cause if you don't ask her for it, she will remember that more than anything else at the end of the conversation.

    Sorry to leave this on your comments but there was no other email apparent:

    Dear LDS Blogger,

    I am with LDS News Source, we are a company that has just launched an online news portal for the members of the LDS Church. As of this message our site searches over 5000 newspapers worldwide every hour on the hour and compiles any and all articles that pertain to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints into one place. Our goal in building this was to create a place where members and non-members alike can go and find out what is happening with the church and its members world wide. It is also our answer to Elder M. Russell Ballard's speech at the BYU Hawaii Commencement Exercises last year where he said:

    "may I ask that you join the conversation by participating on the Internet, particularly the New Media, to share the gospel and to explain in simple, clear terms the message of the Restoration. Most of you already know that if you have access to the Internet you can start a blog in minutes and begin sharing what you know to be true. You can download videos from Church and other appropriate sites, including Newsroom at LDS.org, and send them to your friends. You can write to media sites on the Internet that report on the Church, and voice your views as to the accuracy of the reports. This, of course, requires that you, all members of the Church, understand the basic, fundamental principles of the gospel.

    We are living in a world saturated with all kinds of voices. Perhaps now, more than ever, we have a major responsibility as Latter-day Saints to define ourselves, instead of letting others define us. Far too many people have a poor understanding of the Church because most of the information they hear about us is from news media reports that are often driven by controversies. Too much attention to controversy has a negative impact on peoples’ perceptions of what the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints really is. "

    This afternoon we will be launching the site and we would love to know what you think about it. As an LDS Blogger we were hoping that you would be willing to blog about our new site and share your thoughts with your readers. We would also like to invite you to do a banner exchange with us if you are interested. We have created a section of the site to display a list of all of the GOOD LDS blogs we can find. If you would like to be part of that please email us and let us know and we will add your link as soon as possible. If you are willing to do even more to help us spread the word about LDSNewsSource.com we would like to invite you to place a banner ad on your site. We have created one for just about every size space you can imagine and they can be downloaded here:

    We thank you for your consideration and hope that you enjoy using LDSNewsSource.com

    Sincerely,

    Jared Bauer
