Let me just say this right now: I’m not a fly by the seat of my pants kind of girl. I like plans. Concrete “Let’s meet here at this time and that’s that” kind of plans. So to be met last night with not-so-firm plans, was kind of stressful for me. But I didn’t freak out (at least not to him…my sister got an earful though) and I didn’t even mention it to him. There may be time in the future for my crazy neurosis to shine through, but not on the third date. And it all worked out in the end, so it’s fine.
We ended up just hanging out at my place with pizza and a movie, chatting and getting to know each other better (not THAT better, dirty minds!!!). I was sooooo tired, so it ended up being a nice way to spend an evening, rather than being out and about. We didn’t set any concrete plans for our next date (sigh), but I texted him this morning to see if he wants to get together this weekend. And the clock begins: how long will it take to respond?
The movie was Dark City, with Rufus Sewell, Kieffer Sutherland and Jennifer Connolly. The plot is complicated, but basically Rufus wakes up with no memory, and proceeds to encounter these strange creatures (oddly enough, called the Strangers) who can do weird things with peoples lives. I had trouble following it at times (perhaps I was distracted 🙂 ), but it was ok. A lot of parallels with other movies, like The Matrix and Coneheads (the appearance of the Strangers).
