Mostly reblogs relating to science, books/reading, and photography. Sometimes some original content. I also blog about whiskey, my teenager, and my forties elsewhere. I'll share if you ask nicely.
A couple weeks ago, on a whim, I signed up for a speed dating event. I know. Shut up. I’m expecting it to be all the horror stories I’ve heard about online dating (I’ve never used it) but in 3D, without a block button, and possibly with fewer penis sightings (but I’m not actually counting on that). I am expecting to end up having to put on my social anthropologist hat and pretend I’m observing the mating rituals of the urban male human, aged 35-50 in order for this not to kill my soul.
I’m hanging out with my funniest, snarkiest bitches this weekend and I’m going to try to get them to help me think of good conversation topics for the five minute encounters that aren’t, “What do you do for a living?” “Where are you from?” “How long have you been living here?” and the like. So far the only serious contender is, “What’s the wallpaper on your phone?”
So, help? Have at it Tumblr. Serious or silly, any ideas?
