Just saying. Bonus points if you know and love them, of course.
At least one musical instrument.
The thought of one day being able to own a dog.
A nice, solid pair of boots.
Tea or coffee, I'm a fiend for both.
My water bottle. I'm very needy in terms of beverages, it seems.
-- the exceedingly tangential tracklisting of the soundtrack for my life.
-- what my next song will be about/sound like.
-- how this or that works.
-- the next time I can go to Disneyland. Seriously, I have a pass I've used, like, three times and I'm very angry about it. Let's go.
If none of those things, then either Social Krista is having a beer at a show with her buds or Recluse Krista is smoking a blunt at home in a hole-y Rancid shirt watching documentaries and/or Disney films. Or sober and asleep early.
-- you're actually looking for a relationship.
-- you believe in the words of Rob Gordon and like what I like.
-- you're excited at the prospect of maybe getting to know me.
-- if you just wanna jam sometime. Music friends are the best.
