Friends have described me as intellectual but never stuffy, nerdy but athletic, competitive but laid-back, and not really defined by any single one of those traits.
A comedian (cannot recall who, dangit!) once said we define our compatibility as much by mutual dislikes as likes. I'm definitely not your typical 'Red-State' sort of guy. Professional sports bore me and the politics around here both annoy and worry me.
And I've been flattered to find out that my co-workers regularly guess I'm 10 years younger than my actual age.
Song of Ice & Fire series (Game of Thrones) and Dresden Files, recent Malcolm Gladwell convert as well;
Shawshank Redemption, Princess Bride and LA Confidential; Anything by National Geographic & Joss Whedon;
Classic rock, especially Eagles and ZZ Top;
Shelter beyond 3 hours
Water beyond 3 days
Food beyond 3 weeks (Rule of 3s- medical & SAR folks will know 'em)
My son's love
After an unplanned battery replacement & nearly 2 days down, I'm going to have to add CELL PHONE to this list!
But if you were a kid or teen when Star Wars came out and you DIDN'T end up a life-long fan-boy/girl, I say those are the imagination-challenged folks you need to worry about.
