I spend my time with friends playing board games (Ticket to Ride, Settlers of Cataan, etc.), drinking craft beers or single malt Scotch, and/or watching soccer. My alone time is spent with my dogs, reading (science fiction, historical fiction, social sciences, newspapers, and comic books), listening to music (classical, jazz, or alternative/independent rock), learning to play piano, and/or playing computer games (Civilization for example).
I enjoy traveling, having last been to Seattle (Sounders, symphony, and SAM). More often I travel to Kansas City, Minneapolis, and Chicago. Wherever I go I enjoy visiting museums, exploring used book stores, going to a jazz club, attending a performance by the symphony, and cheering the local soccer team.
I’m looking for is someone who is a good conversationalist and has at least one interest/activity that we can share.
Performances I've been to or am going to this year - Des Moines Symphony, Buckwheat Zydeco, Hanggai, Keb Mo Band, Steely Dan, Elvis Costello, and John Prine.
My favorite performers are Of Monsters and Men, Vivaldi, Steely Dan, Afro Celt Sound System, Bach, Kate Bush, Elvis Costello, Warren Zevon, John Coltrane
I've recently been reading old science fiction and books on buddhism.
My favorite books are Lord of the Rings Trilogy, I Claudius, Doctor Zhivago, Freakonomics, The Russian Primary Chronicle, The Baroque Cycle
My computer and your beautiful smile,
. . .
These are some of my favorite things.
I once read something where a woman was wondering where all the men with passports and library cards were. If that's you, I have both (though sadly I haven't used my passport in a long time).
You enjoy playing board games.
