I'm a science and computer nerd, and I am prone to extended Wikipedia adventures. I can't remember people's names, but I can remember facts about their families, or what they were wearing when we met.
I like being outdoors and around nature, but I have very little interest to "go on a hike" that has no purpose other than the hike itself.
If I had a garage, my cars would still be parked outside because the garage would be filled with tools and machines.
I love my father, but for some reason I am never able to tell him. His garage is filled with tools and machines.
Social liberal, fiscal conservative, best of both worlds. We are Libertarian.
I asked my friend Heidi to render a “brutally honest 3-4 sentence description of me”. I clearly specified 3-4 sentences. This is what she returned:
"Amusing, intelligent, hard-working, and unique are just a few words I'd use to describe Steve.
No matter if he's in the worst mood ever, Steve always is up for a laugh. He enjoys sarcastic humor, as well as other with a good, quick wit. He and his friends are a fun bunch, always chuckling or joking around, and his laugh is a hearty, happy one. Whenever I have a question, Steve is one of my go-to-people. Whether it be about computers, food, or polar bears, I can count on Steve to offer up a lively conversation about any topic. If he doesn't know the answer to something, he doesn't hesitate for a second to find out more about it. (Sometimes, I have to admit, when I want to know more about something, but don't have the time to research it, I often say, "Gee, Steve, tell me more about ....." to which he says, "Let me get back to you." The next weekend over drinks, I'll be schooled, happily. As a colleague, we can count on Steve do help us out in a heartbeat. When a computer is acting up or you can't find an important file, he's the first one to call. The best part is, he always answers his phone, even if he knows you'll be asking him a favor. Again. He's just that kind of helpful, hardworking guy. The most descriptive word for Steve, however, is unique. He enjoys the things he enjoys and isn't afraid to talk about it. Want to play an obscure board game? Call him. Want to watch Ladies Arm Wrestling at the Blue Moon Diner? Call him. Want to start up a random project? Call him. Want to grab a cup of coffee and talk about music? Call Steve. He's one of my favorite people in the world, honestly."
She’s being nice.
I do not want to talk about football, baseball, or basketball. Ever. Like what you like ... watch what you watch ... but please do not ask me to participate. I would much rather go to a museum or the ballet than to a sporting event. Combat sports are the exception. It's like ballet, but with blood ... which is awesome.
