I watch way too many movies & TV shows in my free time.
Social: How I can go on at length about certain subjects with eerie accuracy as to the details; my sense of humor, which is hit or miss with most, but a select few seem to enjoy mixture of sunshine and vitriol.
I also have a pretty ostentatious laugh. Someone once told me they wished they could bottle my laughter.

Someone to commiserate about any of the above with.
Why people can't appreciate something good while they have it.
My philosophy on dating:
(Remember how I said I tell jokes?)
-You cringe when you see bad spelling, grammar, or punctuation.
-You feel you are defined by what you like rather than what you dislike.
-You're able to absorb a movie or a song without talking over it and enjoy discussing what you watched/heard when it's over.
-You'd be interested in sampling the best Indian dinner I've yet had at Udupi Palace in Berkeley. I need more excuses to partake in of their dishes.
