|12:36 am - Accidentally in Like|
Last Monday, I went to Theater Pub to see Oedipus at Colonus, the one play in the Theban Chronicles that I was not in. There, I met a girl and, having discovered she was an actor, I got her a part in Seven Against Thebes that had fortuitously opened up. So after hanging out with her that night, I knew I'd see her at rehearsal the next day.
We have seen each other 7 out of the last 10 days. Here are things she has said/e-mailed/texted in that time:
"I haven't known you that long, but I'm pretty sure you're awesome."
"It was lovely to see you too."
"damn - i'd love to [see a play with you tomorrow night, but I have to see the show I'm understudying for]"
"It's good to see you."
"You're right, we are going to the same rehearsal tomorrow. [So I could crash with you tonight.]"
"Take me all the way back to San Francisco? That's ridiculous!"
"Come, my friend, let us walk to public transportation!"
"Thanks so much for coming and the walk :)"
"That was very sweet of you."
"Thank you for the show and the sandwich."
"Please wish everyone the best for me xoxo"
"You're such a gentleman."
"That was a funny joke."
"This is a nice car."
"I don't want to stop seeing you."
This is too good to be true. It can't be real. I honestly thought she would be tired of me by now. Instead, at the very point that I decide to stop making an active effort to see her so I don't seem really desperate, she invites me to things. I don't understand what is going on. It needs to become clear that we are Just Friends soon so my life can make sense again.

YEAAAAAAH THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT :DDDD
Go with it. Happiness is not overrated. :-)
My reaction as I read this went something like: :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)
You gotta ride that wave! You gotta suck that lozenge!
okay, that sounded a lot less dirty in my head, when the Tick was saying it.

You really are such a poet, Vic.
I was torn as to whether to use my Squee icon or this, but went with Bill and Ted because this is EXCELLENT. Also, most triumphant.
Awesomesauce! Go you!
Funny jokes are the best.

YES! YES! MORE OF THIS! THERE NEEDS TO BE MORE OF THIS!
God, I'm such a stalker. I immediately went to your facebook page to see if I could figure out who it was. You seem to gain new facebook friends EVERY DAY!
Anyway, new friends/possible romantic attachments are generally awesome, and however it turns out, enjoy it :)

Ha. If you look at my latest photo album, she's the one who's not tagged.

That's the magic of theatre.

Oh, just kiss the girl.
That's your answer to everything.

Just go with it. (Easier said than done, I know.)
I concur with all those who suggest you go with it.
Don't question it. Just accept her invitations, invite her to things you think she would like, and see what happens.
How fantastic is this!
"I don't want to stop seeing you."
Oh, yeah. She likes you.
That's certainly how I want to take it, but maybe she is just amused at our frequency of seeing each other and wants to see how long we can keep it up, just for funsies. "We need hope for the future!" she said.
I'm up for funsies anyway.
Kiss her. Seriously. Next time you part, kiss her goodnight.
Well, that's a frightening proposition. I don't want to be too forward since she's in the middle of a divorce, but I will keep my eye out for openings.
It sounds great so far! Don't ruin it in your mind, before anything has started...regardless of where it ends up..it sounds like there is some mutual appreciation of awesome at the very least! ;)
