Now that I have your intrigued attention... Once you get to know me, you'll also find that I enjoy spending time with my cats (read: surrogate kids), Boris (gray) and Natasha (black); animals; dining out (especially ethnic cuisines); science fiction; reading ravenously, movies, and some TV; music; researching stuff I'm currently obsessing about online or in the library; browsing bookstores; coffeehouses; zoos and aquariums; street fairs; picnics; politics; science; history; stargazing; live theater and music; museums; traveling; long walks on the streets or in the woods; swimming; hiking; board games, pool, putt-putt, air hockey and Frisbee-tossing; chocolate; and comics like Get Fuzzy, The Boondocks, Mutts, and This Modern World; and the beach. Last but not least, I also adore giving pleasure even more than receiving it, which includes but is far from limited to hugs; long, passionate kisses; massages; snuggling and chatting for hours.
