Update on me and super-cute Chinese PhD girl i'm friends with: Things were stagnant between us for the last few months of last year, but started getting interesting again around new year's eve. Between that and her birthday party last weekend she's been flirting quite unmistakably with me, and i feel compelled to make a move soon. Things are still moving slow, though. I'm going to look for an excuse to hang out with her later this week and ask her out and/or kiss her for the first time. If it doesn't happen, i'll just have to call her over the weekend and ask her out. One way or other, i'm going to do something about this chick!
