I'm strange, but in good ways. I work at night and I love it. The idea of getting up early in the morning is antithetical to me. Most people would never think to use the word antithetical in everyday conversation, but I do it like I'm sesquipedalian, or something. I like cold weather but hate it when it gets too hot (from November to April is pretty good- any other month and I've probably got the air conditioner on). I also like rain, and prefer to make my place of residence as close as possible to a dark, dank, chilly cave. My views may not be popular, but I'm honest enough to admit to them!
I'm a wanna-be amateur cook. My food is now labeled as fit for human consumption! Or, at least I wouldn't be embarrassed to serve it to someone. I've even been told that I sound like I know what I'm talking about- that's pretty good, right? I will admit to cheating though- I'm a big fan of the crock pot (also known by some as the slow cooker- I'm curious as to why some people call it one and others the, well... other). As winter approaches and the weather cools down I'll start making some nice stews... it warms you up and makes you feel good inside.
I'm kind, I'm respectful, and I *listen*. I will remember the silly little thing you said you liked on our first date, and I will do it for you six months later without you mentioning it again, just because I know it will make you happy. I will listen to your viewpoints with an open mind, and even if I disagree I will still accept them as valuable as long as you've put some thought into them. I will always treat you like an important and special person, because you are and you deserve it.
I'm occasionally cheesy. Reread the above paragraph if you disbelieve. :)
I'm loyal. There's very little I wouldn't do for the important people in my life (within reason, but it would have to be pretty tremendously huge for me to say no to).
I'm modest. Only most things about me are completely awesome. Not everything. To claim that everything about me is completely awesome would be arrogant. I'm not arrogant- I'm modest.
I'm hungry. Do you have anything to eat?
I am intelligent, funny, and laid-back
b) Gladiator, the Patriot, the 13th Warrior, Kingdom of Heaven, the Last Samurai, Children of Men, others that I can't remember right now
c) my musical taste is eclectic- I love a lot of cheesy 80s music, but I also like hard rock, some R&B and rap, some classical, and a little each of this, that, and the other thing (but mostly the other thing). There's an incredible brass band that I have the fortune to encounter every now and then in the NYC subways called Hypnotic- they're absolutely amazing.
d) a high quality, truly well-prepared scallop. So tasty, and healthy to boot!
2) brussels sprouts. Yes, I know you don't like them- you've never tried mine.
3) diet coke. I'm not proud of this one, but I do love the stuff.
4) back skritchies! cannot get enough!
5) sarcasm. It's even better when I get as good as I give.
6) experience. It's what life is all about- literally.
Oh, and that I have an addiction to smilies. :)
Did I mention that I once dislocated my shoulder at the gym, and nearly dislocated the *other* shoulder while trying to kill a wasp that got into my parents' house?
And, as if that's all not bad enough... I like Ace of Base. It's true! I'm sorry, don't hate me!
