Wow. How does one figure out what should go here? I'd like to say
I'm a superhero trapped inside a Clark Kent-like persona, but my
extroverted side would want out badly. I guess the best way to
describe myself would be as a dreamer, but a realist; focused, but
relaxed; driven, but carefree; intelligent, but occasionally dumb.
In other words, I have many facets that go into who I am.
What I’m doing with my life
I work my butt off at work, and I'm good at what I do. I have a
pile of hobbies and I play sports, but I'm dedicating myself to
skating daily this winter. If you like skating, I suggest we talk.
Mostly, I'm just living life as it comes to me, and working towards
some healthy roadtrips and a great life.
I’m really good at
Um, this could be incriminating. I like to talk. I can cook and
bake well enough to have people ask me to bring dishes to events. I
know how to sew, although I'm far from a tailor. I play sports, at
which some I actually excel. I have multiple other talents that I'm
not willing to divulge. After all, I can't giveaway everything
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm actually not sure. I'd hope it would be my eyes or my smile,
but my sense of humor generates a lot of chatter, it seems.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: too many to mention? I try to squeeze in one book a week
when possible, and at minimum one per month. Currently reading "The
Game of Our Lives" by Peter Gzowski (it's a hockey book).
Movies: again, far too many to mention. I have a massive
collection, and I'm working on a new venture with these movies. It
involves technology. I'm pretty proud of this idea.
Music: anything but country and gangster rap. I'm pretty open to
new music. My iPod clearly indicates my age.
Food: I'll try anything once. And more often if it pleases the
palette. I'm more than willing to try ethnic foods because I'm
pretty sure I don't want to miss something delicious.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Hockey. It's vital in my life. After that, I think about all sorts
of stuff: sports, politics, comedy, movies, music, food, cooking,
vacation destinations, roadtrips, animals, nature, technology,
computers. I need to find someone to talk to about all this stuff
bouncing around my noggin.
On a typical Friday night I am
... usually anywhere between out on the town to watching sports on
TV. It all depends, I guess. I like a mix of being out-and-about
and being at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I actually am quite a homebody. I do go out and enjoy a nice meal
or a movie or an event or festival, but I actually like being at
home. I bake, I cook, I experiment in the kitchen. I have lots of
entertainment at home.
You should message me if
... you'd like to talk. On a more serious note, I'd like to get to
know you and hang out with you. Just fire me a message, and we'll
let the chatter determine where things go.
