How do I ask her out?

Visitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Male
I'll try to be as brief as possible.
I'm a 21 years old. A good friend of mine use to date this girl. They were going out together for a month or so but I know he did it for the physical part of the relationship mostly. We (us three) went out together a couple of times a year ago and we had lots of fun. Back then I felt nothing but I met her a month ago(I was with my friend again) and something just clicked. She is not exactly attractive or at least not that much but still I fell for her like a rock.The way she behaves and the way she talks to me *sigh*. Long story short...
Now I am facing two major problems:
1. How do I ask her out?
2. The second one is a bit more complicated...

This friend of mine is...lets just say he has endless resources. He wears cool clothes,has a car, owns floor in a huge house, cool furniture, top of the line tv/dvd/pc/blah blah - the works. I on the other hand am a low life - the complete opposite. I live in a crappy flat and...well you get the picture.
People just keep on saying that the looks don't matter or at least not after the first ten minutes. Well lets get real. I mean forget the looks but sooner or later I'll have to invite that girl in my so-called home. How will I be able to do that? No one ever mentions the fact that us poor chaps have to face more than one obstacle to get into a relationship.
And again my first question: how do I ask her out? All this poverty has build up on me and it seems it affects my selfesteem and confidence. I know my friend won't mind at all so that will not be an issue. Still I need his help to get to her because I have no phone number or anything. Besides I can't just call and say "Hey you remember me? Wanna hang out sometime? Go to a movie or something..."
Some more info on me:
I think I am quite fun guy to hang out with. The problem is that sometimes my "shy-o-meter" hits the ceiling and I swallow my tongue. The idea of asking my friend to set me up makes my skin turn pale and it actually freaks me out.
I don't suppose there is a shot you can get in the nearest hospital for that but any tips or hints would be greatly appriciated.
Thank you in advance.
