Dork Dates

Some of you expressed envy that I got to go on a date last week.

What I didn't tell you is that mr warillever and I actually go on dates several nights a week.

Well, we don't exactly go anywhere, but our philosophy is that if the two of us are alone, we can make it a date. According to Miss Manners, all we need is fun, food. and affection.*

We've been known to spend hours quizzing each other on factoids from the The World Almanac and Book of Facts 2008. You know, exciting stuff like "How many cities in Iowa have a population of 50,000 people or more?" or "What are the seven largest countries in Africa in land area?"

Before the presidential election, we spent hours on planning different scenarios for the electoral college distribution.

We spent two evenings last week ogling the maps at

But the ultimate in time-wasting dorkitude?

Thanks for the comment! My Husband and I cherish our alone time too! We are often found sitting next to each other "shopping" on amazon or playing Rock Band on the ole xbox.
