"Well, yeah, he is kinda cute. I was watching him waltz earlier. He's pretty good at it. The long hair is nice, too; it's obvious he takes care of it. Not sure about the hat, though. ...A personal trademark? You mean he wears it everywhere? Just one of many quirks, I would guess. ...He fences, too?
"Still, I don't know. He's clearly enjoys showing off or he wouldn't be as good a dancer, but he also seems kind of stiff and formal. ...That's his idea of polite? Well, possibly, but it makes him seem straightlaced and boring. ...You're joking. The original BurgerMunch!? Oh! that must be why he's been staring at me; it's my corset. ...Really? My face is what keeps him glancing back?
"Well, what's going to make him come out of his shell, an engraved invitation? ...Ha ha, very ha. Well, there's nothing I can say or do to make him feel more comfortable; he's going to have to get over his own hang-ups and come over to me and say Hi. That's the guy's job, after all..."
I'm an outgoing, gregarious recluse. Or an introverted, timid stage performer -- whichever one you like. With an eclectic collection of quirks.
I am impatient, meticulous, and creative
Books: The Thursday Next series (The Eyre Affair, Lost in a Good Book) and The Fourth Bear, by Jasper Fforde. Just about anything by Douglas Adams. "Major Barbara," by George Bernard Shaw (I keep coming back to this). I really need to read The Magicians series by Lev Grossman.
Music: An eclectic mix. Mozart, Piano Concerto #20; Beethoven, 9th Symphony; Shostakovich, "Jazz Suite #5"; Stravinsky/Stokowski, "Pastorale"; Satie, "Gymnopedie", "Parade"; Benny Goodman, "Don't Be That Way"; Paul van Dyk, "Out There and Back"; http://digitallyimported.com/, http://djlithium.com/, http://scenemusic.net/ . Music is a very evocative catalyst for my imagination.
