How about we… go to the Chinatown Fair Video Arcade, watch the DDR masters for a while, play a few games ourselves, and then find cheap dumplings and gorge accordingly?
An awesome place I've visited:
I've been to the Potala, which is where the Dalai Lama lived before he had to flee Tibet. That was pretty amazing.
The movie I've watched the most times:
Probably Troop Beverly Hills, although My Neighbor Totoro, The Nude Bomb, Can't Hardly Wait, and The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie wouldn't be far behind.
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
I was born over two weeks late so my parents had to open a bunch of Baby's First Christmas presents before I was actually born. When the babysitter would come over I'd pretend I was Alanis Morissette and we'd put on shows. In high school I was president of the gay-straight alliance and played football at the same time. Someone who I don't know very well once told me that I seem like the kind of person who would know a lot of drag queens. I'm a vegetarian but veganism is ridiculous because it involves not eating cheese.
My first concert / My dream concert:
First: Sister Hazel and Patty Griffin at the Pier in Seattle. I think I was 12. Dream: Bjork with Lady Gaga or Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings with Nina Simone.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
Mainly theatre, film, and/or pop culture related. Example. You know how some people pronounce the word ask like the word ax? Most people assume that's a recent development stemming from poor grammar. It actually comes from theatre posters in the mid 19th century. Also, pop singer Christina Milian has played a cheerleader in three different movies.
For me, a first date no-no is:
Excessive complaining. People who have clearly dressed up to look like someone other than themselves.
What I would bring to show and tell:
Someone just told me a story about a class they took where a girl was adopted and brought in her birth mother a month after they'd actually met. I'm not adopted, so I couldn't do that, but that's like the best show and tell ever.
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date:
Two words: Joan Rivers.
I secretly want to be:
I don't think my desire to become a Bollywood movie star is much of a secret so I'll go with vegan jerky tester. I don't know what I'd be testing exactly, but I'd get to eat a lot of vegan jerky, so that'd be a pretty sweet job.
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
Themselves. None of this straight acting assimilationist junk. Let's watch avant-garde theatre and get covered in glitter and then go watch football and drink beer without putting a label on it other than Most Awesome Day Ever.
An infatuation of mine:
Hrithik Roshan. Sigh...
One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
That I'm a charming young man who calls when he says he will?
