I'm a 39-yr old botanist (yes, one of those) living in Boston -- Jamaica Plain to be specific. I love this city for its pubs, museums, coffee shops, relative ease of getting around, and lots of other things. I spend a fair amount of time hiking and hanging at coffee shops, drinking beer with my friends at a local pub, wandering around the city, and lots of other things, including games of scrabble, good books, and decent movies. Oh, and of course I love trees.
I grew up in the midwest (Indiana), and have moved around a fair amount for schools and work. I suppose that makes me all-at-once a bit folksy (haha) and worldly. I like to participate in deep-thought conversations, as well as sassy and funny ones. I'm a bit of a news junkie -- I love NPR, and of course have to watch The PBS News Hour nightly, and of course Meet the Press every Sunday.
People often ask what it is I am looking for. I suppose I have no set thing -- I'm hopeful to meet nice, genuine people on here and see where it goes from there. I am very much in the mood to meet new friends, though I am always feeling guilty that I barely have time for the friends I currently have. On the other end of the spectrum, I'm not opposed to a long-term relationship either, should it get to that. I suppose for that to happen, we need to click pretty well, both deal with our idiosyncrasies (or at least mine), and be fairly local -- I've done and tried the long-distance thing several times, and don't think it is a successful venture. But, if you are from outside the Boston area, don't run away. One never knows?
I am plaid, corduroy, and green
I've typically been good at the things I throw myself at. I'm not sure if that is because I am just tenacious and work hard at those things, or if I only throw myself at things I have a pretty good idea I can pull off. :-)
That being said, there are many things I'm not the best at -- and I like that about me. I like being humbled, and it just further illustrates that I, along with everybody else, am a work in progress.
I dunno, I'll have to ask others what the notice first. Maybe if you like what you read, and you meet me, you can tell me what you notice first.
I like good dramas, exciting adventures, spoofy B movies on the Sci-Fi channel. If it is good, I like it, regardless if it came out last year or in 1945. A few of my favs: Excalibur, The Great Escape, Good Will Hunting, LOTR, To Have and Have Not, Memento, ...
I like music, of course, but it isn't a must have. I don't even own an i-pod! (Ok, that probably scared 98% of you away). As for who I might listen to if it isn't NPR: Rufus Wainwrigh, Joshua Bell, Rory Stitt, Postal Service...
Comfort food tides me over, but so do exotic flavors. There is a Thai place around the corner from me that I go to quite a lot, and when I'm not there, I'm often at the pub another block away, munching on pub grub.
