I've been so excited lately that I totally forgot about the blog.
It all happened Monday. I got to work, and Amelia was already there. To say my day started off right is an understatement. We spent the whole day chatting whenever my asshole manager didn't pull me away to do some project he ought to know how to do himself... *grumble*... Anyways, turned out we both got off work around 5:00.
If you recall from the last post (oh phantom reader who does not exist), I had plans to go out for dinner with my bro and his GF. After finding out we were both free in time to make it, I spent the rest of the day agonizing over whether or not to go ahead and ask her if she wanted to join us. I texted by brother, who gave me the okay to invite her if I'd like. I then texted Ted his thoughts. His text, word for word:
"You should go for it. Just beware tall men in business suits."
Even when he gives advice, Ted's a prankster. I found out today what he actually meant by that, but I'll get to that in a minute.
So, at the very end of the day, I went ahead and asked Amelia out. I couldn't help it. Those sparkling, emerald eyes just make me get all... weird... And those eyes twinkled like the stars, and her mouth become a small smile before those luscious lips parted to form the words I never thought I'd here...
"Sorry, that's sweet of you, but I can't. Homework. But I'm free this Friday, if you'd like to go out by ourselves instead."
I've been riding on the clouds ever since :). I'm planning on taking her out to this nice local Italian place. Fancy, but not *too* fancy for a first date. Really hoping to impress her. Terrified of planting my face in the dirt... Still, it's worth a shot. After all, that hair...
Anyways, once I got home, I told Ted. He immediately gave me a massive hug, with his signature pelvic thrust thrown in for extra awkward. I asked him what the text was about. He grinned that grin that only Ted has and simply said, "Marble hornets." When I gave him a confused look, he burst out laughing.
He proceeded to tell me to Google "slender man" and then Youtube "marble hornets" for my "education". Gave me a slap on the back, disappeared back to his room. So now I'm about to get to work doing what he told me too, just because I hate being on the outside of one of Ted's jokes...
Can't wait until Friday :D
