Are you peeing?

Remember Jordan from Real Genius? She said this: "I never sleep, I don't know why. I had a roommate and I drove her nuts, I mean really nuts, they had to take her away in an ambulance and everything. But she's okay now, but she had to transfer to an easier school, but I don't know if that had anything to do with being my fault. But listen, if you ever need to talk or you need help studying just let me know, 'cause I'm just a couple doors down from you guys and I never sleep, okay?"

I went on a date with a guy tonight who, while he did buy me a very nice filet mignon (good job guy!), said I was "intense" several times. I finally asked him what he meant by "intense," because I just can't tell what that means. Is it good? Is it bad? Does it bring to mind the dreaded "intimidating"? I must have scared him with my tirade because he called me right as I got home and read me the definition from the dictionary and said he didn't want me to think he meant anything bad by it. He said "I just mean that I can tell you're going to be hard to keep up with." Which reminded me that once AmbImb called me a "blogging bundle of energy." I guess I probably am both "energetic" and "intense." But, I'd rather just be me and have someone know right up front who I am and what they're getting into, than to hide under a false personality and finally, in like a year, my real self just comes tumbling out and scares the living shit out of the poor guy! In other news, this was the second date and no kiss -- I'm starting to get the "you'd be a great FRIEND" vibe. Interesting.
