thanks, guys!!! i seriously wouldn't have done it without y'all (and my in-person friends. and my mom.) being like, "DO IT, DO IT," haha.

ahh he also got the biggest, goofiest grin on his face and said "yeah!" right away. every time i think about it, i get the stupidest, sappiest smile just planted on my mug.

i really hope it goes well. caring is scary, man! IT'S SCARY.

guys guys guys

i dunno if you've been following my friday open thread ongoing saga of my brain-eating crush on a friend...but anyway, after ages of agonizing and chickening out, i FINALLY ASKED HIM OUT. and he said yes!!!

i chose perhaps the most embarrassing, ridiculous way to do it, though. we were hanging out and when we parted ways, he went to a cafe, and about 2 minutes after saying goodbye, i was like, nope, i can't do this anymore. so i went to the cafe, busted through the door, tapped him on the shoulder, and was like WANNAGOOUTONADATEWITHME. hahahaughh wow it's lucky he said yes.

anyway our date is tomorrow and i'm about to expire from nervousness and excitement even though i've seen him twice since i asked him out and there's a lot of shy smiling at each other and general giddiness, phew.

Read it, but do your pregnant friends a favor and tell them not to; when I was pregnant it's the kind of thing that would have haunted me with superstitious worry. For all our civilization and science pregnancy is still such a fraught and mysterious time, it's easy to go to a kind of dark, primitive place in your mind during it because of the total lack of control.

Also, thank god this was not posted somewhere with comments, because they would have been just awful.
