And I like forming connections between topics or ideas or phrases that ordinary people ordinarily find unrelated. I like analyzing things in a nonsense way.
I like the way a string of words can have a certain rhythm to them.
I prefer restaurants and quiet bars for getting to know somebody. I love the nuances and details around what's being said, because, as with most things, the subtleties are the best part.
I also have a soft spot for dive bars, especially Irish ones.
I am a sucker for live music, cover bands and open mics. If you are selling CDs and performing, I'll probably buy one.
I make a habit of talking to strangers. So many wonderful people have come into my life just because I worked up the nerve to make a comment or joke that I almost didn't. I hear that Seattle isn't a great place for connecting with new random people.
Do you think so?
