state of affairs: i called him. nerve-wracking. i couldn't do it all at once. i pulled his number up in my cellphone to the point where it said "call"... then i went to the bathroom. as i was washing my hands i looked myself in the mirror and thought, you are a confident person. you are a feminist. you can take action. you can do this. so i just walked back into my room, picked up the cellphone and hit "call" all at once. bam.
one ring. maybe he's not there. two rings. i hear a voice on the other end of the line say, "hello." "Hey, is Dave there?" "no." *beat* um.... okay.... what now? "Okay... can you tell him I called?" "who's this?" "Kat." "Kat?" "yeah." "Ok. bye." *click*.
Eric informed me that the proper course of action in this case should have been to ask when he would be back. Jeez. like i had that kind of presence of mind... to actually think on the fly like that? gah. what does he take me for? superwoman? bleh.
also, an interesting turn of events happened last night. i was talking to JR, who was my ME101 teammate for the last project, and he randomly asks me, "Do you want to go on a blind date???????" with literally 7 question marks like that. um.... uh-oh... so evidently now, because i'm a nice person, i'm going on a blind date with this kid that i vaguely remember helping us on our project. becky says he's "eeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!" christ. how do i get myself into these situations? On the other hand, though, JR says that dave is a "really cool guy" and not a closet asshole or anything, which is good.... glad to know i have JR's blessing in this endeavour. and kristin (drawmate! yay!) went to high school with him, and doesn't seem to know that he's a jerk, though she says she doesn't know him very well.
also on the radar: joakim, from windsurfing, and brian, from japanese.
anyway, all in all, this year looks like it's going to end the same way it began - with more guys than i can count. yay! funny how history repeats itself...
