I occasionally host a Friday night poker game in Reston, moreso in the fall/winter. I'm trying to get people to come try to take my monies. :) And if I bring some cute single boys and get some cute single girls all talking, that's always nice too.
I design web apps and I'm paid to think about what others need and how to lead them to their goal. I work to make our products as logical and helpful as possible, to make the sign posts clear and easy to read, to make a user's little necessary paths and tasks easier, faster and optimally fun.
I like psychology, logic and how that ties in to feelings; peoples' actions, yet I really appreciate a scientific, organized mind that stores trivia. I deeply appreciate someone who is curious about the world and can teach me what they know without making me feel like a jackass for not knowing it already. :)
I love people in general, I love all of my friends, but just a sparkling few really impress me with their humor, patience, intelligence, open mindedness.
I am occasionally bouncy, but can also be bookish and quiet. I find many small things delightful; the right flavor combinations; slightly hot food accompanied by pepsi or coke, the right mixture of gelato, mojito gelato (sorbet really) by itself is delicious.
Just like most people, I like watching stars fall, the sound of cicadas or tiny frogs chirping on summer nights. I enjoy feeling the responsiveness of my car on the pavement, while cruising home on the toll road; relaxed and breathing deeply with the windows open, sometimes catching pockets of cool floral scented trees.
Also like most people, I love the sound of my name spoken with joyful ebullience.
