I collect friends like some people collect Pez dispensers. I work odd hours, so my social time can be tricky, and I'm more likely to call up one of my friends than go looking for love, so I don't date a heckuva lot. I put up a sarcastic front, but I actually get close to people pretty quickly. I'm big on whimsy. I can't really say what I do in my free time, except that if I get an idea in my head, be it mini-golf or a weekend trip to New York, I usually can't rest until I get do it. I'll admit that I enjoy the Encore Piano Lounge without the irony that one might presume is requisite. However, if you require a layer of irony to like them, that's good enough for me. Don't worry, I know that tackiness has a time and a place, and there's no neon in my bedroom. I work with kids, which is great fun and keeps me young, but sometimes at the end of the day, I need to come home to some more grown-up friends. That said, most of my friends are close to my age, within six years or so.
