No, really! To be fair, though, I only rescue the occasional puppy when there's room in my household.
I love to cook, sing, run, repair things (so they actually work!), sit in front of the fire with a good book, travel the world, learn new things, teach, meet people, make my own (very tasty) beer, and generally be silly. I'm happy having a deep conversation (with occasional ridiculous tangents) over dinner, and equally happy camping and hiking in the woods with my dogs, studying art in a museum, kayaking, or having fun at a party. As long as my mind and body are engaged, I'll probably love doing it.
I'm looking for someone who will, foremost, be my best friend. Friendship alone doesn't make a relationship, though - that requires mutual trust, attraction, a commitment to resolve conflicts together, and a dozen other things. Many of those things take time, though, so friendship and attraction are the starting points. It helps if you're sarcastic, if you can take jokes as well as give, and if you're smart as a whip (the latter most of all - brains are sexy!).
I also love meeting new people and learning a bit about them, and I enjoy making new friends. If you think we might get along, let's meet for coffee, drinks, ice skating (which would be a new experience for me), bumper cars, a jog around the park, dancing, caber tossing, whatever. If nothing else, it'll be time well-spent (or, as a friend once said, "time, well... spent!").
I'm a good cook - I can make something tasty from the contents of just about anyone's kitchen, and I have a lot of experience cooking vegetarian meals. I can make great beer in a lot of styles - this is the skill that will help me survive the zombie apocalypse. People have repeatedly told me that I should start selling my beer.
I'm an award-winning teacher, because I'm really good at explaining things to people in a way that they can understand. There's more, but my ego's starting to get a little sassy so I think I'd better stop here.
Books: Gravity's Rainbow (Pynchon; in fact everything by Pynchon), A Song Of Ice And Fire (Martin), various Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Japanese Fiction (Kobo Abe, Murakami). The sci-fi/fantasy stuff is like eating candy, the rest is like having a fine meal.
Movies: City of Lost Children, Blade Runner, Sean of the Dead, The Big Lebowski, Army Of Darkness
Shows: Game of Thrones, Dexter, Arrested Development, Archer
Music: Bowie, Electric Six, Brian Eno, Count Zero, The Eels, Miles Davis, Glenn Miller, The Clancy Brothers, Beastie Boys - the genre doesn't matter as much to me as the quality and depth of the composition.
Food: I love food so much, I eat it almost every day! I don't think I could get sick of Indian food, but whenever I go to a buffet I end up too full. I love spicy - East Coast Grill has a Hell Night event where they serve up a "challenge pasta," cooked with the hottest peppers in the world. If you finish it, you get a t-shirt and a free ride to the emergency room. I have the shirt. The only food I really don't like is pickles.
2. Running clothes. I can run without shoes just fine, but the police tend to frown on it when I run without clothes.
3. A well-stocked kitchen. I love to cook, and need plenty of pots, pans, spices, and other tools to make that happen. I can make a good meal over a campfire with a single pot, but when I get back to the kitchen I want a playground.
4. Books. I'm usually reading more than one book at a time. No, not literally!
5. Dogs. They're loyal, loving, dependable, trainable, warm, and just all-around awesome. I tend to rescue big dogs, but small ones are great too.
6. Something to do. I view the phrase "I'm bored" as a personal failure. I'm always doing something, usually more than one thing at the same time.
Realistically, I don't spend a lot of time thinking about any one thing. I do spend a lot of time thinking, but the topics vary. I try to act on my thoughts once I have them, and that usually leads to different thoughts.
