I'm going to be genuinely interested in anything you are passionate about. There's no better way to get to know you than let you talk about what you love. And if you love it, it will be fun listening to you talk about it. Now, if what you choose to talk about are the 49ers, Georgetown or Chicago Bulls Basketball I might just have to marry you on the spot.
Law school grad trying to find my way in the world, and I'm actually one of those sick people who enjoyed law school. Finals were terrible, but learning is fun. Yes, I said that and I believe it. We can be friends if you disagree, but I don't know if we can be more.
A few other generally specific things: Best movie - Casablanca; best book - The Republic (followed up by either Ender's Game or Gates of Fire (the movie that 300 should have been!)); best CD (ok, I know no one buys full CDs anymore, but it's the best way to describe "best collection of songs") - CCR's Chronicles; best TV show - Studio 60 (in spurts) or West Wing (until Zoe got kidnapped ('cause that's when Sorkin stopped writing it)); best sports team - 1991 Chicago Bulls (no one beats Michael that year) - best punctuation is apparently (parenthesis).
I've been told that I have an opinion on everything, and that's probably true. That said, I'll listen to your side of the discussion on just about anything.
Oh, and I laugh at everything. It's not that I'm not taking you seriously, I just can't stop being glibly wry and sarcastic.
