Learning languages (working on my seventh now).
I'm not too shabby at cooking either; I just bought a Dutch oven and I'm already obsessed.
Oh, and inappropriate humour. Very, very inappropriate humour.
"J'ai tendu des cordes de clocher à clocher; des guirlandes de fenêtre à fenêtre; des chaînes d'or d'étoile à étoile et je danse."
"But know your hair was bound and wound
About the stars and moon and sun."
"Quiero comer tu piel como una intacta almendra."
"Forse un mattino andando in un'aria di vetro,
arida, rivolgendomi, vedrò compirsi il miracolo:
il nulla alle mie spalle, il vuoto dietro
di me, con un terrore di ubriaco."
"Ein Zeichen sind wir, deutungslos
Schmerzlos sind wir und haben fast
Die Sprache in der Fremde verloren."
Music: I have very eclectic tastes. I listen to a lot of Classical (Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Chopin), Trance (Armin van Buuren), and Rock/Indie (Fleet Foxes).
Movies: Star Wars, The Wedding Crashers, Eight and a Half, Apocalypse Now, Stranger Than Fiction, Bright Star. This is a completely arbitrary list.
Shows: Archer, Community, Futurama, Game of Thrones, New Girl, Sherlock, How I Met Your Mother.
Food: Most. I suppose Indian and Mexican rank amongst my favourites.
A an anthology of poetry;
A cat to keep me company.
How we present ourselves; the roles we play.
"We are experiments; let us also want to be such."
Lately, and not entirely by choice, the disgusting political state of most of the world.
Why the poets have been so inexcusably silent on the subject of garlic.
That or at a bar with friends. I used to say here that I go clubbing but... Providence has kinda ground that out of me. Where does one find decent music and space to dance in this city?!
If you figure out why, let me know. I've spent about 13 years trying.
You're intelligent, self-aware, a critical thinker, and you have a social conscience. I'm not kidding about being sapiosexual.
Also, you're not necessarily looking for something serious or exclusive, and you know the difference between respectful casual encounters and mindless hookups. Casual but not meaningless.
