I am a compassionate person with good manners. When I see the opposite of compassion, it gets to me and I wish people were more kind. I think I need a partner with extra understanding and patience. Above average smarts and funnybone too. I want a nice girl, ideally with a pony tail. Possible with little crows feet when she smiles.
When you see it said I don't like cats know that I do, I do like cats. But many of them make me sneeze. Meanwhile I seriously love dogs.
I'd like to end this on a topic other than pets. So here's an example of me being considerate. When the bathroom has an automatic paper towel dispenser I wave my hand an extra time on the way out so the next person has their paper all ready for them.
I just spent a slew of my vacation days snowboarding in BC Canada, and Breckenridge CO.
I'm a touch typer.
I'm a pretty good hitter (softball). I'm good at snowboarding. I can chop vegetables pretty well. I've gotten good at washing dishes in my new apartment. I think I'm a good listener. I think I'm a good arguer, meaning fighting fair.
I think its funny that the things I am NOT good at are very simple things. I am amazed at how many things I drop when I pick them up. Or how I leave my lunch sitting on the kitchen counter. Or how I forget I'm supposed to take it easy on my boss.
Books - Nick Hornby: About a Boy (book, and movie too)
Favorite movie I saw recently: Midnight in Paris, and Man on Wire. Yes, I am far behind on flicks. Also, The March of the Pengiuns. Oh, Brother, Where Art Thou?
And I can't wait for : Bucket List II, Good Will Hunting II, Dolphin Tale II.
Just found a great show on KOFY called Dance Party.
I like the News Hour, Daily Show, Conan, Jeopardy, Frontline, and Archer. I had an experiment in March - I tried to leave my TV off all month.
Food: King Crab legs, though I so rarely have them. Lately I've discovered how good these persimmons are. And pomegranates. Did you know pomegranates are not messy at all if you gut them in a water filled bowl?
I listen to a lot of NPR and especially like This American Life, and especially dislike Car Talk.
Having someone I can talk to.
Tied for sixth place: friends, jokes, bike, sunglasses.
And little plays on words that I just heard.
I am not in a Friday groove at the moment, so I will get back to you on this one.
You have a sense of humor/are a good sport.
Must love art.
Must be a positive person. Doesn't have to be always, but overall positive.
