I spend much of my free time being tactile and expressing myself creatively (and indulging my closet sci-fi habit). I'm a jewelry-designer and I have a financially unsuccessful but highly satisfying side business selling my work online. I also dabble in 2D art, fiber arts, various arts and crafts involving mod-podge. I've recently added stationery printing, hand embroidery and bookmaking to the mix.
I love to dance and have studied belly dance for some time. Throw in a little salsa, a little zumba, a little Israeli...And I love listening to and making music. Karaoke all-star.
I am JUST getting into yoga. I enjoy the mental aspects of it and the focus on bridging the gap between body and mind.
I make a pretty mean guacamole.
Delivering fantasy presidential speeches in the mirror when I'm by myself.
I'm a better editor than I am a writer.
Freaking out over puppies.
Making awesome jewelry.
Singing in Hebrew.
Playing "Smoke on the Water" on a rubber band. (or is that just sad?)
Piano (when I actually get to practice).
Things I suck at but try to do anyway:
Martial arts --> Comedy gold.
Spinning yarn and weaving
Complicated hair styles
Push ups --> Also comedy gold.
Running - for about 3 minutes.
Holding my liquor
Oh, also, I smell nice. Or at least that's what that creepy drunk 60 year old married guy at Thunder Bar told me.
Non-fiction: Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World, A Year in Provence
Poetry: The Country Between Us, Street of Clocks, The Peacock's Egg, Les Fleurs du Mal, Autobiography of Red
My favorite poet is actually one of my best friends - go look at how amazing she is:
Nightmare Before Christmas, Quills, The Red Violin, Moulin Rouge, Anchorman, Hot Fuzz, Taladaga Nights, Supertroopers, , Down with Love, Hamlet (the Kenneth Branagh version), Much Ado About Nothing (also the Branagh version), The Lives of Others, Ever After, Airforce One, Independence Day, Dead Poets Society...probably a lot more I'm not thinking of.
My musical tastes are always evolving and I can talk music for hours. I have a hard time naming any single band, artist or genre that I follow - I kind of dabble in everything to an extent. I like international music a lot and my preference tends to be rock and its blusier predecessors. I like a good guitar riff, strong base and a strong beat. Bands which I enjoy but on which I am by no means an expert: Portishead, Rammstein, Muse, Marilyn Manson, David Bowie, R.E.M., Modest Mouse, The Killers, Franz Ferdinand, Elvis, Aretha, all the blues and jazz greats, Niyaz, Tsu Shi Ma Mi Re, vintage No Doubt, Simon and Garfunkel, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, MJ, Dead or Alive, Polysics, The Ramones, The Clash, Sting, the Beatles (duh), Motown, Ace of Base, Led Zep, Presidents of the United States of America, ACDC, Hendrix, Toto, Springstein, Journey, Bon Jovi, Vivaldi, Pachelbel, Bach, Sousa, Copland, Gershwin, Bernstein, Williams, Mountaingoats, Django Reinhardt, Josephine Baker, Madeline Peyroux, Yelle, Emilie Simone, Carla Bruni, Camille, Sir Alice, Abba, Fiona Apple, Mississippi John Hurt, Robert Johnson, Ray Charles, Sinatra, Black Eyed Peas & Fergie, Smashing Pumpkins, Dresden Dolls, Beach Boys, Cream, Jefferson Airplane, Badly Drawn Boy, Belle and Sebastian, Metallica, Nirvana, System of a Down, Yo Yo Ma, Madonna, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Buena Vista Social Club, Gypsy Kings, Santana, Ravi Shankar, Aerosmith, The Eagles, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Queen, Creedence Clearwater, the Who, Pink Floyd, and then that litany of great American songs that everybody knows and a bunch of other stuff I'm probably forgetting. For some reason I don't like the Doors and I really don't like Radiohead (talent-wise they're fine but listening to it makes me viscerally uncomfortable).
Also today's country music (I call it country pop) makes my ears bleed...However I love the older, blusier country stuff, aka Johnny Cash, bluegrass, rockabilly, honky tonk etc.
Food - I love a good restaurant.

- Guys who like girls
- Ages 26–39
- Near me
- Who are single
- For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating, activity partners
You enjoy intelligent conversation but still have a sense of humor, you're educated, you fall into the happy medium somewhere between clingy and aloof, and you enjoy trying new things and exploring the world.
