What's the Strangest Place You've Been on a Date?

On Fridays, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. If you're looking for a unique Valentine's Day date, New York's Department of Environmental Protection has a suggestion. Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant in Brooklyn is offering Valentine's Day tours. ("Whoever shows up is welcome to a Hershey kiss,” the plant superintendent told The Daily News.) Have you ever taken someone or been taken somewhere creative (or awful)? What's the strangest place you've been on a date?

2. If you had the power to rename one product, what would you choose (and what would you name it?) Maybe there's a name that doesn't make sense, or sounds awkward.

3. It's been a while since we last played What Are You Reading? (And do you recommend it?)

4. I found this faded novelty mug in the back of my closet, which I picked up in 2002 after the Beltway snipers were caught.:

I have moved three times since then, and magically the ridiculous mug has followed me. What's the oddest novelty cup or plate in your kitchen?

What Shows Up When You Google Yourself?

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
