Oh, and back in school AGAIN 'for real' this time. Fourth time. Yeah....
Cultivating new interests (when I dive in, I go deep--like sometimes "research" deep).
Strategizing/planning (details, details, details . . . I'm good at getting you in line.)
Cuddling (don't message me if you are not advanced at snuggling).
Expressing myself in print (not making much of a case for myself here, I realize, but not interested in posturing as super 'quippy & cool'--feels a bit unapproachable to me, sometimes).
Easy to talk to. I find nearly everyone interesting (note to poseurs & ego maniacs: you are fascinating, but I'll only read about you ;) .
Matchmaking: books & the people who will love them.
Loving and appreciating the people in my life; told I'm quite a good friend.
Some books that live with me for convenient revisiting: The Sailor from Gibraltar (M. Duras); The English Patient (M. Ondaatje); Space Merchants (Pohl & Kornbluth); Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep (P.K. Dick); The Awakening (K. Chopin); The Bell Jar & Ariel (S. Plath); The Moviegoer (W. Percy); & box loads more that require much heavy lifting when moving.
Don't spend much time watching television, but old favorites are as follows: Charlie Rose (god, what I'd give to be his water glass--or the guest glass); Keeping Up Appearances (British humor--often superior); Twin Peaks; & BTVS.
Movies: Up for anything and enjoy most, though I'll say I'm happiest with indie films and local theaters. Did my 1st Music Box of Horrors last year--made it 18 hours straight (nope, didn't even 'rest my eyes'). For some reason, the imagery from 'The Beyond' is still stuck. Planning another attempt. As of now, Chucky's in the lineup (original, of course), & he still scares the bejesus outta me. (UPDATE: missed it this year & still ticked)
Radio (which certainly should not be left out): NPR junkie (Sound Opinion, Wait Wait, TAL, Bob Edwards Weekend, Prarie Home Companion--look, I'm a nerd of sorts, & happy that way), but my forever fav is RadioLab (you are men after my own heart, Jad & Robert).
Music: Pretty open here, but my crush for the last 5 years is Joan As Policewoman. Fun fact: Didn't plan on it, but I have a favorite opera! Love Lyric's Next student tixs.
(UPDATE: Surgical Museum: Check!)
Is it time to go to the grocery???
How can I read all these books before I die? I can't choose!
Has Carly Simon provided for us in her will or will we forever wonder who was that vain?
I smudged my glasses again, already?
(or not since my fav studio burnt down)
Or, now trying to catch up on my reading for class and meeting my book club's expectations.
Okay, fine. I own both seasons of Pee Wee's Playhouse including the Playhouse Xmas special. It's art, okay. Really. It is. Even PBS agrees: http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/beauty-is-embarrassing/film.html

You're a brown-eyed, brown haired, lighthearted, silly kind of guy who isn't quite the 'life of the party' but is the guy that everyone's glad to see show up. & no one would ever believe how organized you are at home and with finances or what a problem solver you are. & you like hats--like, fedoras. & hey, we were supposed to meet 2 summers ago, but I guess my psychic's timing is imprecise, huh? Her racket's fun, but always off base ;)
You think it's worthwhile to meet women even if they aren't a 'cupid' match--i.e., you like women as friends, 'cause they're interesting people, just like you.
Don't message me if:
You have never loved an animal.
You don't live in Chicago or somewhere quite nearby.
You don't make mistakes.
You don't know how to apologize.
You like West Side Story (most uncomfortable musical ever).
You don't find this wonderful:
