Drat! I was so close to securing a custom costume gig that I found on Craigslist last night:

My name is Aimee Davison and I'd love to make a costume for you.
I made my costumes (the cigarette girl and the pink one) on
www.modelmayhem.com/missmaemontreal. I am very crafty.
I also would love to interview you for my Blog
onehundredjobs.blogspot.com. You would be, appropriately, Job 13!!!!
Call me tomorrow, as I am away from my phone right now or write back
anytime!!! I LOVE THIS AND WILL MAKE YOU AN AMAZING COSTUME!!!

So what should I ask him next?
A) What he had for dinner last night?
B) If he read "The Game" by Neil Strauss, and if so, does his consider himself to be a PUA?
C) His pant size?
D) What is the meaning of life?
I'm off to the Vice Magazine party tonight. Maybe I can use my PUA skillz to secure another gig. All I have to do is neg my future employer and gradually increase my mental "kino".
Your tie is ugly, but I love your company. Hire me.
Isolate and secure (HOOOOOOKKKKEEEEEEYYYYY),
