Stereotypes are pretty easy, and I'm not above them, so I tend to categorize myself a snob-froggy. That means I like my stinky cheeses, but I could never stand to smell like them, drink fine wines but never get drunk.
I'm a academic by day and an artist by night. I like the same things as most Manitobans... like lake, beer, hiking, canoeing, live music. Oh and I like to read, go figure. Probably the only thing I don't like is running and I've come to terms with that. If you want a running buddy you should probably keep looking.
Intelligent, I am, and I'm a good conversationalist, but I'm for sure more into the experience of something, and hearing about your direct experience of something, than the why, how or who of it. We all have purpose and that's one of mine this go around.
