I make a lot of thing in my life harder than they need to be. I twist my stomach into knots, turn bright red at least twice, puss out, unsuccessfully try to calm down, go back, and manage to ask the girl out with an audience
. After all that she has to close tonight. I did find it amusing that the audience (the other girl working there), was helping me
. Any time she said, "I have to close tonight," the other girl said, "Which isn't that late!". Yeah, so she's got finals all next week too, so I left her my phone number. I'm not feeling too hopeful, but she did at least make sure she could read the number. Maybe that's a hint of good intentions.
On a lighter note, I got a raise that I'm not supposed to know about until tomorrow morning when I go in for my review. The highest possible would be a quarter, and I unfortunately don't think it'll be that much.
Also on a positive note, I went ahead and bought the materials for the Jedi robe even before reading any comments I might have gotten on the last post. The Wally World is closer to work than home, so I saved a bit of gas and just went right after work. Total cost = $18.58. The cheaper robe online didn't look to bad, but I think the fun of actually making it outweighs the cheapness.
