I love spilling beyond neat boundaries, while challenging assumptions (others’ and mine). I am happy to have gained a great deal of high-quality friends, knowledge, experiences, and stories throughout my life, and I look forward to more. I try to live my life like I travel… prepare well, plan only some of the major waypoints, relax along the way, and enjoy the small details and unplanned opportunities that come along. In general, I find that life is most interesting when saying 'yes' to things more often than not. I love having exceptionally high expectations and finding them occasionally exceeded.
Oh, I'm kind of hilarious. Not in a self-summary kind of way... more of an insightful and/or oddball comment woven artfully though our conversation kind of way. Also, stories like when I accidentally slept with my best friend's dad or when I shut down a building by touching a Big Red Button.
I'm fortunate to love my job, though I keep it in perspective. I'm part CFO of an engineering company (current job), Paris bike tour guide (past job), and a t.b.d. part documentary filmmaker.
[Apparently not everyone reads Savage Love in Seattle.?. Good, Giving, and Game.]
Oh, I mean, a smile.?.
Royal Tenenbaums, Secretary, Princess Bride. My girl friends know that I am always up for a chick flick, and I also love a good documentary.
I enjoy a great meal out, but I also enjoy cooking with someone else. I like pretty much all of the foods, but if your partner must like beets, then we may not work out.
Head and the Heart, Radiohead, Alt-J, Johnny Cash, Macy Gray, etc. I hit a live music show or some other performance every couple weeks... always up for a good idea!
Quiet time and no conversation
(Think of the different combinations!)
Maintenance to do on paddle wheel houseboat.
The relentless pursuit of contentment.
Also, if you suffer from the (apparently) common fatigue that results from seeing endless shirtless dude pics and receiving "yer hot, wanna f*ck?" messages.
