--I've lived in New York City longer than in the town I grew up in, which makes me a non-native native New Yorker. Work in the film/TV industry but am NOT an actress.
-- I Have a very dry sense of humor.
-- I Have a voracious appetite for learning new things and discussing everything and anything.
-- I find it impossible to lie, which is often not a good thing.
-- I am tremendously loyal to my friends.
-- Watching the sea lions and big cats at the Bronx Zoo makes me happy.
-- I could stay in the water all day. Does this make me part fish?
-- I get really excited when I get a high word score in Scrabble.
-- I have been known to scream and/or cry at my Mac when I can't figure out how to fix something. I've only broken down in tears once in the Apple store.
-- I'm an amateur photographer (I'm usually on the other side of the lens, thus the not great photos of me on this site). Though I love the convenience of digital photography, having grown up with my own darkroom, I miss using film and the process of watching an image emerge from the chemical stew.
-- When I see people litter I want to push them into traffic.
-- I have a great poker face, but don't know how to play poker. I want to learn. Want to teach me? But I will tell you now -- once I learn, I give no mercy.
-- I once won a pair of handcuffs playing Skee-Ball in California, but airport security wouldn't let me take them on the plane. I wonder if the security guard kept them.
-- I would be in trouble without spellcheck but want auto-correct to die (until I need it, of course). I wrote "are" not "ate". Ergh.
-- I work out (gym and lap swimming) but I don't particularly enjoy it (though I like the meditative quality of swimming)
Though I've lived in NYC my entire adult life, I have
-- never walked across the Brooklyn Bridge
-- never been to the Statue of Liberty (though it looks lovely from the Staten Island ferry)
-- never been to Ellis Island (it's not going anywhere, right?)
Here are the things that keep me sane (in no particular order)
-- movies (in the theater, not on TV),
-- Mets (or insane, as they constantly let me down)
-- Stephen Colbert (performance art genius)
-- Bill Maher (now conveniently an owner of the Mets - maybe he can figure out how to get rid of the Wilpons)
-- Central Park
-- Long subway ride when I'm reading a good book
I LOVE to travel-- just get on a plane and go - the more exotic, the better, or getting in a car for a road trip. I've been to China, Vietnam, Bali, and many European countries. There are still plenty of places in the US I haven't seen. I'm very spontaneous -- just give me a minute to put on some clothes
I'm looking for someone who wants to get out and try all types of things, but is also cool with just hanging out, reading a book and just being. We can be together in the same room having an intense conversation, but can also not say anything without feeling the need to fill the air.
If you are religious (or say you are serious about Christianity) and make a point in your profile of saying you are "God fearing" (a term I will never understand) we probably won't get along.
I am confident, spontaneous, intuitive, creative, and calm.
