RED ALERT RED ALERT ALL HANDS ON DECK

Realizing I had Hal's* email address, I looked him up on ye olde Myspace.

oh geez, ladies...let this be a lesson to us all - research first, reply to emails second.

A few highlights from his profile:
-A picture of him posing proudly next to Danny Devito- whom he is an entire inch taller than.
-He lists only magazines as his "Favorite Books"
-His blog entries are full of legnthy amateur restraurant reviews (ie snooooze fest)
-He wants to meet someone who "enjoys being wined and dined, and entertained as well..." (I'm sorry, this creeps me out. Maybe I just don't know how to let anyone treat me nice...but...well...it rings false.)
-A link to his website - classic/terrible comedian/magician schtick.

His claim that we will have "lots to talk about!" makes me a little scared.

So, with mounting evidence that this guy is a total douche, and, yet, for the sake of the blagh - do the 5 minute date anyway?

This is such a tough one. As a friend, I want to spare you. But as a co-blogger, god, this is funny. But I also feel like at this point you have probably been through enough with Hal. I think it's safe to put this one to rest.

p.s. I apologize in advance if this comment made no sense. Sasha and I just overly-enjoyed some incredible choco-tinis at Max Brenner's happy hour.

NO WAY, don't do it. Please...don't do it.

Haha geez! The guy sounds annoying but he's not going to, like, murder her on a five-minute date in a bar. He might destroy her will to live, though. That would be my main concern.

look at it this way: what could possibly happen on the date that would be more hilarious than what you've already (very skillfully) milked from this online encounter? i don't think it's necessary.

That's my thought exactly. An actual conversation with this dude would be overkill.
