Periodically I do have to venture in to the office. Then I spend time figuring out how to to NOT make buildings not fall down in earthquakes! Seems to be a rather appreciated skill in this area.
Social dancing, particularly swing, blues, and latin (salsa, cha-cha, little tango). I know a smattering of other things, and if you give me a few minutes to learn some basics and I can usually manage other styles.
Trivia! I have an amazing ability to collect and remember completely useless bit of information.
Cobbling together something tasty from whatever odds and ends I have available. Restriction breeds creativity, or at least that's the excuse I use when I don't want to go to the store. I can plan meals/dishes/dinner parties too!
Fencing (the Olympic kind, with swords). Physical chess is usually the best description for it - you have to out-think your opponent, in addition to actually out performing them. Chandelier swinging by prior arrangement only.
pretending to be shocked when people tell me that, just to
see their reaction?)
If you start talking to me, I think fast on my feet. So if I start
telling you that I'm actually a secret agent for a foreign
government, being pursued by terrorists, and need your bottle of
tabasco to make my escape, I am probably making it up as I go
along. (I did get the bottle ot tabasco, after the laughter stopped)
More serious stuff: Guns, Germs, and Steel, The Happiness Hypothesis, Cadillac Desert, Unweaving the Rainbow, Zinn and the Art of Road Bike Maintenance. There are few things to compare with a sunny afternoon, a good book, and a bottle of wine.
Movies and Shows: Not a big one for passive entertainments. Generally prefer movies that leave me with something to think about (Inception), or documentaries (Thank you for Smoking, Food, Inc). Things like Fraiser, Big Bang Theory, and How I met your Mother are always good for a laugh, and cooking shows usually send me scurrying to the kitchen to try something new.
Food: Italian will always be my favorite. (I've always been jealous of my cousins, who have Italian family on their other side.) My philosophy is to try anything, as long as I can get a fork in it before it runs off my plate. So far I haven't been given a reason to reconsider this!
- A bike. Definitely my preferred mode of transit.
- Sunshine - I swear its why I grew so tall
- A good book
- A good bottle of wine
- Adrenaline (far too many fun and exciting things to do)
this makes me very happy.
My career choice partly stems from playing with LEGO. This is not a
bad thing in my opinion.
I like confident people who are eager to get out and do things. Life is an endless array of possibilities, and I want to find a partner to explore those with. Want to go on an adventure?
I prefer to meet in person, rather than sending endless messages back and forth. That's the fastest way to tell if there really is chemistry, and much more fun than staring at our computers!
