Good morning, kittens.
Excuse me while I gush for a moment ... I had a really great date last night. He's almost impossibly attractive: (almost) 41, 6'2", shaved head, fantastic smile, beautiful gray eyes. His skin is the color of strong coffee with juuuuuuust the right amount of half-and-half stirred into it. And he's smart: Working on some sort of Way Over My Head physics research that he wants to translate into some sort of technological start-up (or something). Our birthdays are two days apart. He has nice hands.
We met after work at the U St/Cardozo Metro Station. From there, he went with me to do a little shopping along 14th Street (Go Mama Go, Home Rule, Pulp). Then, we had a leisurely dinner at Busboys and Poets. We talked. We ate. We laughed ... we seem to have a lot in common. The check came. He paid (on the condition that I pay next time ... Next! Time! *w00t!*).
It was raining when we left the restaurant, so we shared my umbrella. He walked me back to the Metro station. And we made out for a while at the top of the escalator.
Once home, I called him to let him know I made it, and we ended up chatting (while I packed for NYC) for over an hour. *sigh*
I feel like it's been a long time since I've been so giddy after a first date. Nice to know I can still feel that way. And, I'm still smiling.
In other news, I'm off to NYC after work today. I'm looking forward to meeting up with as many friends as I can ... and also to do a little shopping. On Monday, I'll be heading from NYC to Philly with some fabulous bloggers to hang out with BOSSY and some of her Friends. Yay!
Have SuperFUNtabulous weekend! *smooches*
