I don't mind doing the dishes. Especially if you cook.
I like lounges, rooftops, and dive bars about equally.
I can cook a little. I wish I could cook a lot more.
Ultra-conservative viewpoints are hard for me to stomach.
I'm very curious and don't like to accept just not knowing
something. There's too much information available to claim
