Okay, so I called Kate. (It's only been two days since I was supposed to call her...) Here is how it went:
P: "Hey Kate....Kate? Hello? Is this Kate?"
*fuzz over the phone and nothing for a minute*
K: "Hi yeah, this is Kate."
P: "Hey Kate, this is Pinetree. My roommates were telling me you were over here waiting for me to get home forever on sunday night so I figured I'd give you a call."
K: "Oh yeah, I came by to see if you were home so I could thank you for the Valentine and then Ana (my roommate Ben's girlfriend) started talking to me about Dostoevsky and stuff so I ended up being there longer than I thought."
P: "Oh...well, thanks...for the thank you" (Am I the most articulate person in the universe or what? Hell...what stupid things I find myself saying sometimes...)
*awkward chuckles as Pinetree slaps himself on the forehead with the palm of his hand and says a silent "d'oh!" to himself*
K: "Yeah, no problem, seriously, thank you."
P: "You're welcome. So.........."
*then there was like this forever silent moment*
P: "So do you want to hang out or go out on a date sometime?"
K: "Yeah, sure."
P: "What are you doing Thursday night?"
K: "Nothing that I can think of"
P: "Okay, cool, well how about I call you Thursday night and we'll go do something."
K: "Ok sounds good to me."
P: "Okay, ttyl, Kate."
Yeah, I know. Just call me Rico Suave.
Anyways, I have a date thursday night. I'm gonna borrow Smurf's car...maybe an hour or two early so I can clean all the crap out of it or at least shove it in the trunk. Now I have to think of what we're going to do. Honestly, this is like my first official date in over year. Like Robb says though, if it all turns out crappy and awkward, at least I'm headed to Alaska in May. It's cool how my blog is turning into this twisted Degrassi episode the last couple posts.
