I tend to be overly kind to people unless I get burned. I can be stern with guys and intense in my goals. I'm a straight shooter, and I don’t waste anyone’s time. I know what I want, and what I have to do to pursue it. No drugs. Only drink with friends/family, rarely. I have a solid dorky streak that ensures the stack of books on my windowsill is constantly growing.
I’m looking for someone I can have fun doing anything with. Comfortable staying in and letting me cook them dinner (or vice versa) or going out exploring. Kind. Honest. Thoughtful discussion. Accepts that I'm a closet dork :)
I love traveling, so I'm not really opposed to a long-distance thing.
I'm terrible at:
Staying awake when I have nothing else going on. I thrive on activity.
Avoiding buying things I don't really need if it's a good deal.
Baking (stuff spontaneously combusts around me).
Remembering what to buy at the grocery store.
Movies...I'll watch almost anything. C and D list movies are fun to watch from time to time (Army of Darkness!!!). I'll watch any genre of movie if it's good. Darker/cynical film noir movies like Miller's Crossing are my favorite, I suppose.
I don't watch TV, so I haven't got a whole lot to put in the "shows" category.
Music...Tom Waits, Black Keys, Huey Lewis and the News, White Stripes, Bob Dylan, Metallica, Daft Punk, Elvis Costello, Billy Joel, Elvis, Gnarls Barkley, Eric Clapton, Howlin' Wolf, Jimmy Johnson, John Lee Hooker, Lightnin' Hopkins, John Prine, Andrew Bird, Velvet Underground, Omar and the Howlers, John Cale, Rancid, Joe Bonamassa, the Ramones, Gorillaz, Gary Allan, Adele, Melody Gardot.
Food...all. Except Thai food. It smells like socks. I'm pretty awesome at making breakfast food, especially French omelets. Sushi and cheesecake are my best friends.
distractions (internet, games, books).
