    Greg, I say this as directly as I can here: stop waiting. I know you've been going about this carefully and all that, and I understand why, but stop waiting. Make the time count.

    At the very least, you'll be able to know exactly where you stand with this woman, and if it's a good place, well, then Kansas City isn't all that far, Greg.

    Not in the ways that count.

    Yep, Greg this...

    4 hours isn't far, and who knows, you two might just be able to work out a long distance thing. It happens.

    I told her tonight I was going to start asking her out at every opportunity, bar none - movies, dinner, walks, whatever, until she said "yes". I told her she was going to a concert and another weekend concert with a friend of hers. She protested slightly until I said "You're going" and that was it. No argument. No protest.

    I am not going to let her go without her knowing how much I care or what I feel..

    Fuck it. I'll only be here once. The worst that can happen is I get turned down multiple times - and she didn't seem like she was going to do that when I talked to her tonight and told her I was going to start doing this.

    She smiled. She laughed. It was good (her smile could bring sunshine to a dungeon).

    Well this melted my heart- from a way outsiders view I'd say she was a goner (in a good way!)

    Also, this thread is making me want to go to a concert BAD. I wonder if there are still Opeth/Mastodon tickets....

    I am frequently still awake until 12:30 on evenings when I don't have an 8 AM class to work the next morning.

    Which means in about a month, I'm not going to be here that late at all except for the weekends. I look forward to summer session because of the pay, not the hours.


    Morning Hounds.

    Not to disappoint you, Andreea, but I think you've missed a few.

    The price you pay for having a life and job.




    ETA: If it helps any, I missed the last one, too.

    The last newbieque was Meow... something. I think I was here long enough to light the grill for it, as that is my job, but then I missed the rest.

    We've been short on new blood lately. We need to recruit. Or turn. Or infect.

    Whatever it is we do.

    I'm hiding from DL because I haven't met my word count goal this week.

    I'm only about about 1k away from reaching it, but it's not going well.
