I would enjoy meeting you if you have some of my interests, but we don't have to share them all. I do appreciate someone who is at ease in the kitchen, the gym, the ski slopes, the coffeeshop, the dance floor (ballroom dancing?) or the bookstore.
I get to ski at Sun Valley once a year. I like winter there for skiing and October for the Jazz Festival. Went on a fabulous, fun-filled baseball tour this summer. 6 games, 6 states, 6 days. I have now been to 8 baseball stadia/stadiums (if you count both in Seattle).
My haiku about Daylight Savings Time:
Swiftly stolen hour
Your loss like an albatross
Around my ev'ning.

I enjoy live classical music. Seattle Opera - have season tickets with my dad. Wish I was at the Ring this August. I have seen Don Giovanni in both Prague and in Seattle.
I follow a couple of shows online and have been known to watch C-SPAN and TVW. Bonus points to people who know what TVW is. Jumped on the Downton Abbey train last year and recently completed a Scandal marathon!
