I'm all about the details. Not in a nit-picky sense, but the details of a day, a book, a meal, a painting, and definitely a person are what interest me most. I will listen to the same line of music over and over if it strikes a chord with me. I can (usually) pick out exactly what spices were used in a complex sauce. A good line of poetry will stay with me for weeks. And it's the same with my relationships...not looking for anything ornate or overblown--simply something simple but full of beautiful, memorable moments. I'm hoping to meet someone who likes getting lost--either literally or figuratively--in the excitement of every day.
While I'm nowhere near being a great chef, I do love experimenting in the kitchen--and reading/collecting cookbooks--and I try to eat fairly healthy although I'd be perfectly satisfied with pizza and good beer every night thanks to my WI roots (Leinenkugel's anyone??) I also love live music--anything in the folk/acoustic genre is usually up my alley, and am always up for checking out a hole-in-the wall venue or splurging when someone good is in town.
