Recently moved into my new neighborhood in town and am actively
trying to expand my social circle. Busy taking advantage of what's
out there including sporting events (soccer & baseball mainly)
theatre, movies, concerts, bars and restaurants. Best to catch me
now before things slow down.
What I’m doing with my life
Keeping a balance between work - which I enjoy - and fun
activities. Few people confess on their deathbeds that they wished
that they'd spent more time in the office.
I’m really good at
Listening ... talking, not so much. More seriously I'm good at
sampling new things. I'll try pretty much anything once, as long as
heights aren't involved. I'm a pretty good traveling companion. I
won't whine that some place is too hot/cold/noisy/quiet.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a dry sense of humour, which is not necessarily appreciated,
but hey it's who I am.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Just watched Tree of Life, Submarine, Midnight in Paris and
Bridesmaids in the last couple of weeks. Make of that what you
will. Ditto for Boootycandy and the Purge. I listen to a lot of
music online (mainly BBC Radio 1 / 6 Music), attend concerts
assiduously and will eat pretty much anything that moves, or
doesn't as the case may be.
The six things I could never do without
(1) Music - I spend an inordinate amount of time listening, and so
(2) the internet over which most of this takes place and (3)
concerts for the rest. I love (4) traveling which can be vacations
to Europe or quick trips to NY. I suppose that I should mention (5)
family and ... (6) world peace. You know lions lying down with
lambs and all that crap.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The '27 Yankees. Actually, no, they don't trouble me that much. If
I'm honest (probably a good thing), what does trouble me is the
lack of civility and humour in the online environment. So many
h8trs!, as the kids say.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing soccer, although this is due to recent scheduling changes.
I's prefer to play on Saturday afternoons and spend Friday nights
carousing at a concert/restaurant to celebrate making it through
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've seen Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and the Black Eyed Peas in
concert. Not at the same show, obviously. And Kylie Minogue, Pink
and Beyonce (sort of). Oh my.
You should message me if
You've made it through all of the above. Congratulations. What's
the worst that can happen?
