Hey IRC people: Thanks for the help last night.[More:]

It worked.

Sorry I missed the chance to know what this was about.

Glad to hear it!

Care to fill us in?
Love, money or espionage?

Sorry, Miko, I wasn't intentionally trying to be cryptic, it's just a little embarassing.

I've been talking about the cute girl for a week now. Last week I did one of those CraigsList missed connections things, and last night I heard from said cute girl. IRC people walked me through the steps necessary to avoid being creepy and stupid, and they basically composed my response to her, wherein they made me ask her out, and she said yes, so now I think I have a date and it's a whole new level of OMG.

Hmm, so I'm cleaning my bedroom, trying to work off excess energy and quell my nerves.

Under a pile of pennies (and cat hair) on the dresser, I find a fortune that I saved from a fortune cookie at some point. It says "At this moment, someone is thinking good thoughts about you."

And I go Awwwwww.

Moments later, I find another fortune that I've saved. I swear to god, it says "An alien of some sort will be appearing to you shortly!"

What have I done???
posted by mudpuppie 23 May | 15:03
gah, what is wrong with that thing! Not Cute!

As always, I'm impressed by your courage, mudpuppie! I'm hopelessly shy in situations like that.
posted by muddgirl 23 May | 15:26
Shit, muddgirl, me too. That's why I'm freaking out!
posted by mudpuppie 23 May | 15:28
AAAAAGH! It was supposed to be tomorrow, now it's tonight!

Guess that saves me a restless night, but still!

Whenever i see a creature with multiple eyes or weirdly positioned eys like taht, I wonder what it's like to have that field of vision. I'm weird.
posted by jonmc 23 May | 16:27
You'll be fine, pups. Just let your natural endearing qualities show, and the evening will flow.
posted by initapplette 23 May | 16:37
Tonight? Go get her, pup!
posted by Specklet 23 May | 16:37
Good 4 U, muddie. You should feel lucky I wasn't in irc last night. My advice would've spoiled everything for sure.
posted by wendell 23 May | 16:42

Tonight's better. Much less time to build up the freak out. Plus, you've got the emotional momentum thing going right now.
posted by occhiblu 23 May | 16:51
Way to go mups. I'm really glad for you!
posted by richat 23 May | 17:40
Go, pup, go! Happy days are here again.
