My dream is to buy a giant Victorian house in the German Village or elsewhere, and deck it out with some cool antique loot; furniture, drapes, a piano (So I can pound on the keys like a drunken monkey—I can't play). Hard wood floors are a def. The basement will be the rumpus room, full of a modern look, with Ohio State decor in a bar like room. (Go Bucks.) I have the house picked out too. Back home as a child, (Lima area) I had a reoccurring dream about an old house. After I moved here, I was exploring and found the very house I dreamed about.
Or maybe I'll take flight from winter and live in Belize? Hmmm. Dreams are good. What are yours?
I love exploring the city and finding new places to eat, drink, and have experiences in. I'm always bummed when an old Columbus institution, like The Clarmont, closes. I think many parts of town are stunning, with their Victorian houses, fresh gardens, and cobblestone streets. It is almost like a work of art, to me. I guess it makes me connect with the past, like I'm seeing the same thing that the forefathers saw 200-years ago, and I'm helping maintain that.
I get the same feeling going to tOSU games (1998 grad). Like it's my duty to keep the tradition alive and to pass it down to the younger generation. I love the Thurber quote about Chic Harley; one of my ideas is to write a screen play about Thurber and Ohio State football—but I'll keep that on the back burner for now.
The kind of women I click with are ones that like to get out of the house, have class and intelligence, maybe professional, but yearn for that stress release time. She has too appreciates a man that will make the first moves. I have a good feel for chemistry. That can get me in trouble, but most of the time it spices up my life.
Call me old fashion or cliche, but we should probably meet at a coffee house for the first date. I know, I know, not creative; however, I do believing in bucking the 'awkwardness' trend; dates should never be awkward, they should be hilarious, amazing, and brimming with, perhaps, sexual tension.
Book: Infinite Jest is an awesome book. Loads of laugh. It's a page turner. I also like Atlanta Nights, it was very well written.
Movie: If you haven't seen the room you should. Best. . . Movie. . . Ever.
Drink: there is no time like wine time. But a good Guinness is good as well.
Eatery: Thurman's. If you didn't vote for that for Columbus best, than you and me need to have a looooong talk girl. ;-)
TV: Breaking Bad, Mad Men, West Wing, TBBT, House of Cards, Xfiles, Futurama.
