I am positive, passionate, and paradoxical
In the winter throwing snowballs, ice skating, taking in a hockey or football game, enjoying the excuse for hot chocolate, or traveling somewhere sunnier or more exotic.
In the summer, randomly discovering Shakespeare in the Park in Harlem, being a part of a live Lip Synch Battle with over 5000 other New Yorkers, or happening upon the randomness of an artist's kibbutz on Governor's Island. Plus the fun, but more conventional movies, concerts, and Lincoln Center displays outdoors too. Still need to find some people for kayaking the Hudson.
* listening, analyzing and dispensing advice that works great for other people
* surprising people with my strength
* finding Waldo
* getting asked for directions in a foreign country where I don't speak the language

Food: SPICY and ethnic, but not gross exotic. PB&J is great but will only get me so far. And eye balls will never cross these lips.
I'm double-jointed, but you have to take me out to find out where.
