Dorms, Cuddling, and Peter Pan

That's what my night was all about... I went to Leah's dorm room with her and we watched the new version of Peter Pan (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0316396/). I was kind apprehensive about it at first, cause Peter Pan is one of my all-time favorite stories. But it was good, though the girl who played Tinkerbell kinda pissed me off. But, that was off-set by the fact that cuddling is awesome. Near the end of the movie she fell asleep in my arms, it made me happy.

Now I have a conundrum.. since I've never actually had to be a part of this particular kind of situation.. I've never had to ask the 'will you be my girlfriend' question. It was always just kinda assumed I guess...
So.. how does one do this without coming off like a complete ass? Or sounding incredibly cheesy? If anyone has any advice, please let me know!

    Voltaire - 10 BRAINS!

Blankets, Swings, and Sweet Potato Pie, Oh My!

So, for those of you who may be wondering how my date went last night.. I'll give you guys the basics.. no details of course, as it's not really my place to say.

Well.. I woke up at 1 pm and the power was back on (Thank god!). For the first couple hours of the day I did nothing but be nervous... I was going to be home alone all day before the date, with no one to talk to. Luckily, I got ahold of Brian and he wasn't going to work, so he came over and hung out with me to keep me from going crazy. He showed up at like 2:30. I started getting some of the prep done for the recipe. Grated the cheese.. chopped up the celery, peeled/grated the carrots, chopped the onion and peeled and chopped the sweet potatoes. By the time I was done with all of that, it was 5:45! (Only having a butter knife to do all this stuff really really sucks.) The closer it got to eight o'clock the more and more nervous I got.

I actually started cooking at about 6:30. It was all said and done at about 7:05. It looked and smelled delicious, but I didn't try any. I stuck it back in the oven to keep it warm and went to get ready myself. Shower, shave, etc. I get done, it's like 7:35.. B leaves 'cause.. it's real close to time. I sit around, getting more and more nervous, almost destroy a lamp on accident.. at least I got my major fuck-up out of the way early... I pack everything up at like 7:50 and sit down to smoke a cigarette to try to calm myself down. She shows up at exactly 8 o'clock by my watch, and we leave. Now here's the fun part.. the park I took her too is like a 5 minute walk down the road. So we get into her vehicle, and I tell her to go to the back exit.. as we get near the exit, I tell her to park. She seemed kinda confused, but that's what I was hoping for.

We walk a couple of minutes to the park, I set down a blanket and pull out the food. We ate. The Turkey Sweet Potato Shephard's Pie was amazing.. I didn't know I had it in me to make something so damn good. We ate and talked.. and then we talked some more.. and then we went and played on the swings, and talked some more. Then we went back over to the blankets and talked even more. Then the other blanket came out, and we cuddled under it for a bit, and continued with the talking.. 3 hours have passed, and we finally decide it's time to start heading back. So we do.. get back in her car, and drive back to my building in the back of the park.. we sit in her car for a few minutes, talking more. And then the kiss.. I'm still reeling from it, I was completely scatterbrained for almost an hour after it.. (what can I say? She's good..)

So, I'm waiting for her to call me today so I can bring up the second date.. I already have a really good idea.. based on something she said last night. She mentioned that she's always been interested in astronomy. So I'm gonna take her stargazing :)

On Discordia

"But the sons of men fought on, and slew; and Eris gloating watched." - Quintus Smyrnaeus, Fall of Troy 9.324

Now she's fucking with me hardcore already.. I'm moving from one job to another, and it happened almost instantly.. I wasn't expecting it, I wasn't even considering it. But the place I'm employed now has informed me that they need me at their gas station instead of their towing company. I'm not losing a job, so much as being transferred. Not a bad thing, as the gas station is a WHOLE lot closer to me, just.. random.

*sigh* I fear for my sanity this upcoming year...

    Atmosphere - Modern Man's Hustle

After a long silence... the soapbox gets climbed upon once again.

My twenty-third birthday is on the second of July. Less than a week away, I should be happy no? I suppose I am.. to an extent.. my birthday usually means at least one good day inside the hum-drum that passes for the rest of my life.

It's not even that I'm upset with anything... I'm just BORED of everything. I need something new.. something exciting, and so far.. I don't have any interesting prospects. A new game, a new friend, a new hobby... anything would do at this point. I used to pride myself on the fact that my life was anything but monotonous.. and now? >_<

Maybe it'll change.. Eris has already decided she's going to fuck with me hardcore.. a week before my twenty-third year too.. I'm afraid of what she's going to do to me the rest of this year. Maybe it'll spice things up though.. chaos is never a bad thing in the middle of order. The order gets boring too quickly.

I swear, if this is my third birthday in a row that I don't get any Birthday Ass.. I'm gonna be pissed.

P.S. I'm going to be getting a Tattoo soon.. see my userpic? That's what it'll be. Because I'm totally a Godsend.
