So, here's a little update:

Ant is coming to my house tonight to watch a movie!

I can't believe I invited him, it was an unusually bold move for me. Here's how it came about:

He came into my office yesterday evening about 20 minutes before closing time. We spent 10 minutes talking about his hearing aid, leaving only 10 minutes before I had to leave. And, unlike most evenings where I can stay after work longer to talk to him, I had to leave at 5pm last night. (Our office Christmas party started at 5:30, and I had to run home, pick up my date (my mom), and head to the restaurant.) So, right at 5pm I told Ant that I needed to leave. It may have been my imagination, but he looked disappointed.

Anyway, after the party I went home and turned on Lord of the Rings 3, it was on TV, and after awhile I received a text message from Ant asking if the party had been fun. I replied and we started texting. At one point he asked me if I wanted to borrow a movie from him and I said yes. He offered to bring it to me tomorrow (or today, Saturday) and asked what time would be good. Well, my family is celebrating my mom's birthday today, Saturday, (she's turning 38 on the 17th), so I said I wouldn't be free until around 9pm. He said he'd bring it to me at 9pm and asked for my address. I typed my address into my phone then worked up a lot of courage and asked if he wanted to watch the movie with me.

He said yes, and now he's coming to my house to watch a movie! I've just gotta say that I would never have been so bold in the past. I was inspired by the recent boldness of my friend, Burnsie. She's my hero!

Anyhoo, that's what's happening.

Wish me luck! (All I want is to not make a fool of myself.)

Well, it's a good thing I came on here. I was just going to call you to see if you were done with the party!

I hope you have a great time!

38!!! Whatever. I hope you have a good time and the Lord doesn't smite you for lying.

I'm glad that one person's bold move can encourage a bold move in another (especially when there were no "fruits" of the first person's bold move).

Another update: we had a really good time! My brother and his family hadn't left my mom's yet, so Ant ended up meeting them (and my mom of course). He didn't even seem uncomfortable. My family later told me that he seems like a really nice guy. I think so, too.

We ended up watching two movies and did a healthy amount of talking in between the movies. So, he didn't leave my house until after 2am.

I like him. I hope that, if nothing else, we'll end up becoming friends.
