And I like to eat. In restaurants, standing up, in bed, in my car, showering...it's a passion.
I enjoy really good conversations and like listening to interesting people. I like knowing random things in culture -- be it sports, current events, music, tv, movies or books -- and use that to begin a conversation. And I usually feel awesome when I get someone to laugh.
I enjoy my quiet time but I really like dining out and going to cultural events. And I go through phases where I get really into cheesy love songs from the 80's and 90's. I enjoy thinking up of random band names, song titles, and puns. If you can't tell already, I'm a pretty whimsical guy.
I love music. I will try any song once. Also, looking to get back on the clarinet and learning Portuguese for work. Let me know if you want to form a band playing only Fisher Price toy instruments.
If you're into the StrengthFinders kind of thing, mine are adaptability, restorative, positivity, intellection, and arranager.
I am not kidding when I say I will date you so I can spend time with your dog.
If you're neurotic enough to be on the side of endearing, that's a plus. Like someone who have had bangs before but still can't decide if she liked them or hated them.
Movie - Bringing Up Baby (I enjoy screwball comedies)
Shows - Community, Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock, anything hip and smart. I'm really into Portlandia right now.
Music - She & Him, Feist, Rilo Kiley are the ones that stick out in the mind but I love talking about music. Beatles, Rolling Stones, garage bands, country music (up until the 90s), alt-country (Ryan Adams, Neko Case), new wave, fun 80's bar rock (Huey Lewis, Eddie Money, Bob Seeger), punk, David Bowie (of all iterations). I can go on forever. I can make an argument that Stevie Nicks is the third best musician in Fleetwood Mac.
Food - I. Love. Food. I would venture to say half of my thoughts concerns food.
I spend some of my spare time staying in shape. I also like going out to wine bars, gastro pubs, shows or any creative performance. I usually try to check out what's culturally interesting around the area and if there's any good shows or exhibits around. I guess that's my type of adventure.
Reading up on Settlers of Catan strategies.
And Lloyd Dobler is my hero.
And want to go see a 90's cover band.
