I've got a deep voice and a ready smile, and I'd like to get to know you better. Let me know if you feel the same.
I'm planning several trips in the upcoming year or so, including a trip to Europe and several trips across the US. :)
Philosophy (amateur only, unfortunately), theology, politics, economics, and other long, strange-sounding words. I've got a good deal of experience with them, so I can hold my own in most discussions about it.
Reading. I love to read, and I read as often as I can. I can usually get through a novel in two days or so, less if I give up such luxuries as sleep, eating, and seeing the sun.
I'm a better-than-average typist, and can type so fast you won't even care what I'm saying here.
What I'm most good at, though, is listening when someone has something to say, being a sympathetic shoulder. I've been through a lot, so I can usually empathize with what people are going through.
Apparently, I've got a voice that would be really good for either radio announcement or phone sex hotlines. At least, that's what I'm told.
I don't know whether that's a good thing or a bad thing.

Food: I like just about every kind of food I've ever had. I like breads and pastas over other carbs and starches, and I really like meat.
I've also been known to go to some pretty extreme lengths for something sweet and fruit-related, and don't usually pass up the chance to try new offerings from the fruit family.
I'll try anything once, even if just to say I don't like it.
I think about various and sundry topics, and I'm always interested in more food for thought, for if you don't feed your mind, just like your body it will shrivel and die.
I'm working on it, though. :P
If any or all of those sound good to you, drop me a line. Because I'm just as tired of it, and I can't wait to hear from you.
Also, if you managed to get this far, good job. You're almost definitely the kind of person I want to talk to. :D
