I'm a DC native. I live w/ 4 rescue cats & lots of books. I love teaching & learning, reading (& collecting, repairing, & donating books), languages (I practice ASL, Spanish, & French whenever I get a chance), science (all kinds), animals, arts & crafts, history (ancient, medieval, world, US, & others) & trivia. I'm a life member of American Mensa. I was a special educator; now a sub paraeducator for all populations. I volunteer w/ Easter Seals & MoCo Recycling Dept.
Spock & Data, & do you mean Dr. Who or the Doctor on Voyager? Because I like him also. I prefer Picard. I have all the 'Kirk' episodes memorized, but let's face it, Shatner isn't/wasn't a great actor.
No; took me a minute to understand, b/c I first saw it as "MXA", like an acronym, instead of recognizing that the 'x' represented multiplication. Then I got it, but it's not an LOL.
Games, movies, science-related events, museums, cultural programs (that is, human celebrations, not high-brow stuff), language practice, new experiences, GF-friendly restaurant dining (I have cards in 10 languages to facilitate this) & travel, incl. road trips, train & air travel, both domestic & foreign. I'm happy to host at my NE Silver Spring condo home, although it's not big or w/c accessible.
