I spent 5 weeks one summer studying in Troyes, which is an hour and a half southeast of Paris, and which I was told is pronounced exactly like "trois" except with more phlegm and agitation. The most important thing I learned from this experience is that "Je voudrais un croissant" is the most important phrase in the entire French language.
I love sharing things I'm passionate about and I'm passionate about a lot of things.
Intelligence is my biggest turn-on
I can't decide which is more nauseating: sensitive guitar guys, or the air-headed girls who actually like that crap. I bring that up because one of them is outside my window at this very moment. I'm blasting Rage Against the Machine in retaliation.
I have a dark sense of humor and a dirty mind. I am also socially awkward. It happens. I have been told that I'm vastly more caring / sincere / self-effacing than I usually come off on first impression. I think these things are often skewed by stupid defense mechanisms or something :P
I really like people who are smart, weird, eccentric, and excessively honest; it's a hell of a lot healthier and more interesting when people actually communicate legitimate feelings and shit to each other rather than play games. It is in fact OK to do that, even if it does make you feel awkward. Really, I promise I won't judge you. Well, unless you like twangy country songs about tractors; in which case you haven't really given me much choice, have you?
I'm pretty adventurous and love trying new things; be it climbing a mountain, or trying new foods from sushi, thai, nepalese, ethiopian, indian, chinese, or whatever else have you. However unlike many people in Boulder I do not think that every moment not spent outdoors is a waste of life.
Spicy is VERY good -I once had a dish in Beijing that made my lips go completely numb and I think that's awesome.
Microbreweries make me very happy. So does the fact that crazy independent developers are still making games for the NES and the Sega Genesis. I tend to get overly enthusiastic about nerdy things and if you do too then that's a good reason to message me. I'm pretty sure we'll get on great!
Congratulations on making it this far! Unfortunately I don't have a cookie, so instead you can have this topology joke
