So remember a few posts back, about hanging out with the guy from the gym?

Yes. Well.  We went to the movies today before he had to go in for work, and I wasn't completely awkward!

We went to see Lawless, which in my opinion was pretty funny, and I have to admit that the overall experience was fun.  I think I laughed in parts that weren't supposed to be funny... but whenever people get beaten with shovels I can't help but giggle a little.

I'm glad that my crippling social awkwardness didn't make an appearance.  I was actually able to make small talk and not sound like a complete moron.

ALSO, JB (which is what we'll call him... because that's his name) hates Nickleback. And Avril Lavigne. Win, and win.  And he likes pepper jack cheese.  This is good.

Anyway, tonight I'm going to stay up and watch the high school football portion of the news segment that he's on and actually try to understand what's going on.  I watched it last week and it was pretty good, despite the fact that I was like, "What? Oh hey, there's JB! If only I understood what he was talking about..."

So yeah. Hanging out with him was nice.

I think I have an idea of what I want my new painting to be... I'm going to start sketching it tonight and hopefully I can get far enough along to post my progress some time this weekend.  I love this giddy feeling I get every time I start a new project.

Mayte tweeted me told me that she got her postcard in the mail and I felt happy because she said that both her and her mom liked it.  Maybe I'll do another postcard project after I finish up with my painting.


  1. I can't wait to see the new painting :) I'm glad that your time with him went well and you weren't totally awkward :D Yay you :) I hope the next time you hang out goes better too. You never know how much you two may actually have in common.

  2. Oh, it's good that you guys had things to talk about:) So when are you meeting him again?

  3. Oooh glad to hear that your night went well and can't wait to see the new painting! :D x

  4. Glad that the date went well.

    I don't think you're that socially awkward. We all have little flaws in ourselves that we blow out of proportion sometimes and I think this date proves it. :P

  5. Why does everyone hate Nickleback? I hate them too, but I hate most things.
