My self-summary
Hi! I'm Sam... and I'm awesome. Just wanted to put that out there now so there's no surprises later. :-) I'm a happy, outgoing, laid-back, cute, funny, confident, silly, have a good lid, ambitious, brutally honest, quirky, tall-ish with heels, strong morals, witty, good values, sarcastic, genuine, nice, thoughtful, romantic, generous to a fault, cool (very), faithful, down-to-earth, driven, fun, spontaneous, energetic, definitely a talker, green eyes (not blue), independent, rarely on time, well-traveled, open-minded, loyal, optimistic, trusting (naively so at times), sweet, expressive, heart-on-my-sleeve, reliable, hard-working, do-gooder, enthusiastic, excitable, go-getter, try-everything-once, home-body, partying, nurturing kinda chick... and that's me in a rather hefty nutshell!

Meeting new peeps, trying new things, seeing new places... this is the essence of life - how we grow, learn, experience, understand and give-back. But when it comes down to it, I'm hoping to eventually fall head over heels in love... not too much to ask!! Wish me luck... and right back at ya!
What I’m doing with my life
I've been fortunate enough to travel all over, i.e. Japan, Dubai, Maldives, Brazil, Cayman, Jamaica, Costa Rica, Switzerland, England & Scotland (my homeland, sans the haggis), Paris, Amsterdam, San Fran, LA, Vegas baby, Chicago, NYC, Van city, etc... although my relatively new mortgage has quelled my ability to travel so freely. : (

I walk to work, love DIYing, hate cable, collect sand from my travels, try to discover new restaurants in the city, visit my retired parents in Costa Rica and generally have a pretty great life.
The first things people usually notice about me
I smile a lot. And that I'm usually late. Okay, let's be honest...I'm always late. Except when I'm catching a flick or show. Example? Late to the airport and risk missing my flight, but HAVE to arrive to the theatre in enough time to get snacks, get a good seat and get settled all before even the trailers begin. Not my fault...just part of my DNA.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My faves include, but are not limited to, the following:

Books: Fine Balance, In-Between World of Vikram Lall, God of Small Things, Blindness, Life of Pi, Pompeii, Shantaram, and typically any depressing Indian novel. Oh, and have a slight obsession with travel books....

Movies: True Romance, Momento, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Being John Malkovich, Amores Perros, Princess Bride, Old School, just to name a few...

Music: Weezer, Teddy Bears, Radiohead, Cafe Del Mar, St Germain, Massive Attack, Koop, City and Colour, Jamiroqui, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, Maria Callas, Benny Goodman...and old school house.

Food: Anything and everything, except mushrooms. Oh, and not too keen on things that look back at me on my plate.
The six things I could never do without
1. Visa, and travel points :)
2. iPhone (sad, but true)
3. Burt's Bees chapstick
4. Steeped Tea from Tim's
5. Passport
6. Independence
On a typical Friday night I am
Standing dinner date with my girlfriends...Friday Night Supper Club.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm *awful* at replying to messages...sorry.
You should message me if
...you're over 35, confident, interesting, positive, outgoing, FUN and think you can show me something new ; )
