How about we… go to a park. Then you, me and a stack of foam weapons made out of PVC, pool noodles and duct tape proceed to see who is the better sword fighter. Loser buys lunch.
How about we… Get in the car, pick a starting point, pick a direction and drive. The first restaurant neither of us have heard of is where we'll have dinner.
An awesome place I've visited:
A tiny town in Hunan Province (China). It was called Xiao Shi Cun, roughly translating to "Little Stone Village." It won't appear on most maps (too small). I taught English there for the Summer.
The movie I've watched the most times:
Jurassic Park, probably. That movie was most of my childhood.
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Born in the fearsome ghettoes of Delaware and moved out when I was 9. With the help of non-traditional schooling and parenting, I blossomed into a full-fledged nerd. I went to college, danced, studied, cooked and made a bunch of friends; I even got a degree. Now, a chemist, I wander from contract to contract, hoping for a position that will stick.
For me, a first date no-no is:
Revealing that you are, in fact, an axe murderer. Leave some time for me to begin to like and trust you before brutally murdering me with log-splitting tools.
