And my reply was simply, "it's not that I am racist, I just don't like Victor."
Both Victor and the other kid laughed, and we were able to move forward with the class.
So, I guess that's a little insight into me.
I want someone I can get to know this city better with. I am in this new place and would really like it to become a background and character in my life, and it would be great to share it with someone; going to karaoke, trying new restaurants, seeing all the typical and atypical New York attractions, and of course, on occasion, staying in and Netflix marathoning or even playing video games. Feel free to read on and don't hesitate to send a message.
In the movie, High Fidelity, John Cusack says that it's not what you are like, but what you like. I totally agree, so, with this in mind, here are some things I like and love:
- Arrested Development
- midnight screenings to movies
- singing karaoke (horribly, of course)
- driving (but this is New York, so I have no car)
- making pancakes for people
- learning to cook something new with someone
- Conan O'Brien
- good conversation over good brew
- dancing to 80s tunes
- Seinfeld (and making Seinfeld references)
- Anchorman (and making Anchorman references)
- many leather-bound books, and an apartment smelling of rich mahogany
- Batman (I am very, very geeky)
- my family (oldest of four brothers)
- trying to figure out mystery/dramas while watching them
- playing video games with friends (not obsessed, just like to
play the occasional Mario Kart)
- talking about future teaching plans
- Louis CK
- walking home through the city streets after a night well-spent
- making my own costume for Halloween
- finding the perfect gift for someone
- getting to know people better
- Peace Corps
- home-made Mexican food (basically, my mom's cooking)
- catching a baseball game
- playing baseball with friends for fun (though, admittedly, it
usually gets competitive)
- playing party games with pals (yay Cards Against Humanity)
- Doctor Who
Thanks for stopping by. You stay classy!
