I'm a mid-westerner and a fresh transplant to the DC area. I've been working overseas on and off for the last several years or so and will only in DC for a few months at a time in between months of travel. I am far more interested in meeting interesting, entertaining and creative people to explore the area with than anyone to date.
I am adventurous, bipedal, and not left handed
Movies: Bladerunner, T2, Return of the Jedi, Flash Gordon, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Ghost in the Shell, The Big Lebowski, American Beauty, Monty Python, Coraline, Lord of the Rings, Amelie, Indiana Jones, James Bond, Aliens, The Fifth Element, Fight Club and anything by Hayao Miyazaki, Jean Pierre Jeunet or Terry Gilliam.
Music: I'm currently loving on lots of funk, catchy dancy Europop/JPop and anything with cool guitar/bass that I might be able to play. Aaaaand in no particular order, I'm quite fond of Bjork, U2, Led Zeppelin, Queen, OK Go, Nouvelle Vague, Suzanne Vega, Electric Light Orchestra, Crystal Castles, Shpongle, Lee Burridge, Wolf and Lamb, Maya Jane Coles, The Chemical Brothers, Phoenix, The Knife, Paul Simon, Blur, Beck, Blind Melon, Chromeo, The Beatles, The Pixies, The Killers, The Beastie Boys, The B-52's, The Strokes, The Bravery, The Cars, The The, Plej, Duran Duran
Food: I'll never turn down Mexican or Japanese but I'm a complete foodie and dig on most cuisine. Though strangely enough I wholly dislike peanut butter. (Don't make me try your secret recipe extra awesome peanut butter cookies, I won't like them, I promise.) I used to be famous for my dinner parties but I'm seriously out of practice.
and my little dog too
(oh, and one of those freaky flying monkeys would be pretty nifty)
-Finding a place to set up camp
-Driving a wee bit faster than I should towards a destination discovered on the internet during my lunch break.
-Digging into a project in my apartment
-Tromping around town looking for fermented concoctions of hops, barley and live music.
-You get waaaay too pleased with yourself over (or can at least appreciate) a well placed pun. (I'm apparently very capable and willing to use groaners on a regular basis.)
-You want to find (or know of) fun things to do in the area and need a cohort for shenanigans.
-You enjoy using words like "cohort" or "shenanigans".
-Seeing as much of the world as possible is high on your list of priorities.
-You're in touch with your inner/outer nerd.
-You touch your inner/outer nerd.
You should probably move on if you are looking for a boyfriend, spend most of your time watching TV (I don't own one and generally am lousy conversation at discussing what went on in the latest shows) or if you have six fingers on your right hand.
