My date with Neil Tyson!

It's (seemingly) been a while since I've updated here, but tonight was the night where magic happened. Sparks flew, I saw stars in the most depressing light. I got myself a date with Neil Tyson. While he should be a household name universally, I'm aware that he is not. So those of you who are sitting there with question marks over your head, do the research! It started with a visit to the Chinese resturant. I was looking my finest and yes, so was he. He even complimented my dress! What a gentleman!
He chatted me up about his thirst for cosmic discovery, my ears were simply melting at the sound of his soothing voice. Such a charmer he is, even the back of his head is attractive. After having our fill of tea we went straight to Park Pond for some Scientific shenanigans!
Err, sort of. I took advantage of him just a bit, who could help it? And afterall, this was a date! I have a thing for facial hair, and just look at that moustache. It is one of a dignified man, a dignified man with an impressive wine collection at that, I simply swoon.
We did some stargazing while at the pond, and he opened my eyes to what the stars really were. Poetic and honest, he really did grip me.
Onward to Rock Festival Park! where Neil took the microphone to let out his innermost thoughts. Too intimate for a first date, maybe? I felt honored. "Our love was like a supernova in the nebula of my soul, but now I find her heart is like a big black hole", he sang before shedding manly tears. And so did I, so did I.
Our date came to an end at the Dream Garden Park. When he smiled all my stars aligned. It was an honor and a privilege.
