      Hi Advah,

      Oh, gotta love a boy who can give good email! Where are y’all meeting, and do you have a backup plan (ie, have a friend call you at a designated time just in case you need to get out of it)? I hate to kill the romance, In this day an age, you gotta be careful…

      • Advah says:

        Good call, I hadn’t thought of it!! Hopefully it’ll all go well though – I’ve met him a few times before (we both write for the same paper), although it took him 3 months and a lot of wine to finally, awkwardly start talking to me. Shame he’s so shy, he’s got the cutest accent so I want to hear him speak! I’m joining him and his friends for drinks so hopefully it’ll take the pressure off. :)
        Now, time to plan the outfit and makeup!

        • Karen says:

          Sounds like fun. What are you thinking about wearing?

          I’m going to sound like a paranoid older sister, but please, PLEASE also keep your eyes locked on your drink. I’ve read one too many stories about girls getting drugged on dates! I’m sure he’s a nice guy, but you can never be too careful.

          • Advah says:

            Oooh I’m totally with you there, I’m paranoid about that stuff and NEVER leave my drink alone and always cover it with my hand when I’m in a crowd. You just never know (and I don’t care if my friends think I’m crazy, hah).

            And it’s stupid but I’m hoping that schizophrenic weather will be cold enough I can wear jeans. I’ll be so much more comfortable in my usual jeans and a tank top, esp if we just end up at the pub. And I can let my new shmexy haircut do the talking! :D

      Hey Kelly Jo,

      Funny you should mention whitewater rafting — I’ve never done it before, and it’s on my list of things to do this summer. Do you know anything at all about the rivers around northern California? I have no idea where to start…

      • kelly jo says:

        Sorry, Karen, I don’t! But if you are ever in Colorado for rafting I have lots of suggestions of good tours on great rivers! It is a total blast and SO much fun. I highly recommend getting enough people to fill your own boat/raft – makes for a crazy fun experience! I hope you get the chance to do it – have fun!
