Sanctuaries include: Coffee shops, movie theaters, and the gym.
I like motifs, musing variations on a theme - especially when grouping together favorite movies and books.
I score equally right and left brain, which can be a benefit, but is also a frustrating dichotomy.
Read: Creative / logical. Reserved / Outgoing. Romantic / Cynic.
You might say that's not possible, but it's happening.
Sometimes, playing the contrarian to one's self can be fun.
I try not to take people lightly. I feel in one's life you only come into proximity with such a finite number of people; It's really amazing that in the span of the universe you've run into this other being. We take these things for granted, but the mathematics of that encounter are pretty staggering, and I think in a sense that's special.
"Measuring it out with coffee spoons"
(connoisseur. Also, I like the round tables)
Amassing huge amounts of airline miles - becoming well versed in this. The only thing more fun than traveling is traveling on a big bank's dime. My destination list is growing.

A decent movie theater
The "Simulation Argument." By Nick Bostrom.
The big questions. All of them.
Connotation and implicature.
The distance between two synonyms.
What if you were traveling through a lush garden paradise, a place of phenomenal beauty and possibility, and in the thick of wood you stumbled upon a flickering silver box. Projected from that box was a glimmering image of yourself in the very garden in which you stood. You found yourself drawn to and mesmerized by the familiar glow of your own existence. After some time you sensed that it was not a mirror at all, but a bizarro, fun-house-version of yourself.
Nonetheless you couldn't help but stare, and more and more - though you might leave the box to go eat or play - you found yourself always strangely compelled, always returning to that box. And you noticed that all the other creatures in the garden would also come out of the wood and stare at the same box, the very same upside version of themselves. And while the garden itself carried own and flourished with all of its beauty and possibility, you spent all of your time with the other creatures, lost, swimming in the depths of silver flicker, and never really knowing why.
You are a thinker, a purveyor of wit and sarcasm, have a penchant for dry humor, If you think Conor Oberst is a lyrical genius.
You are a woman of passion, substance, complexity, fun, humor and intelligence, or some irresistible toss up of them all.
You're a thoughtful person. You might be looking for something serious, or you might be looking for something more casual, but you realize that casual does not necessarily mean inconsequential, or unimportant.
I feel like dating is searching for a needle in a haystack, but you only get to search through a handful of the hay...still, hoping to find that needle, hoping to have some fun and get to know some interesting people in the process.
