I think that the other stuff in the profile does a good job of collecting my business into a series of text boxes better than I can do while rambling on here. However, this is a pretty good place to stick some stuff about you and what I'm looking for. Yeah, here's my hand at a bit of relationship divining.
A great time with a girlfriend, for me, is that night where the week just sort of drained life out of us and we meet up at one or the other's place for some pizza or gyros(even better if it's from a local dive that only locals really like). We vent a bit about work, commiserate about how it's like the week would never end, and then I completely destroy you at Scrabble or some other game. Oh, not destroyed? Well, perhaps there are some allegations of cheating but I swear that the dictionary on my iPhone NEVER got used. It just happened to be the last app open. No, I wouldn't use Wikipedia to gain an unfair advantage at a trivia game. Ok, my smile gives me away. I will concede that next time we'll play that game you always win at... I mean, all that recent, secret practice should have paid off by now.
After the subsequent dethroning of my short-lived win, we catch up on some netflix, lounge on the couch and talk about the plans for the weekend. Heading to DC or to a friends for some grilling action (yes, the stuff we're bringing is totally done and in the fridge) or there's that band playing at Fellini's that we wanted to see or whatever else sounds good to spend a day together without a plan.
That's a thought. I mean, I could have completely gotten the game wrong...
I am laughing, random, and hands-on
Outside of work I like to help with Habitat for Humanity, tutor a high school kid or two, and like doing other volunteery things when possible. I like having fun though as well in a self-indulgent sort of way sometimes. I can't always be helping the less fortunate, right?
The outdoors has always been a pretty good place for me though and my camping gear is always ready for a trip. Ok, so it may need a bit of prep, but it's very close to ready...
Movies - Best way to put it is varied... I'm not a huge fan of action movies though. I loved Requiem for a Dream, Gattaca, Dan in Real Life, and a few others I can't think of at the moment (perhaps I didn't love them enough?)
Music - Radiohead, TMBG, Brad Paisley, Postal Service, Rammstein, the list goes on...
Food - Often, I prefer to cook than to go out and I'll try just about anything once. I have a special place in my heart (stomache?) for Mexican, Chinese, and Italian cuisine. My favorites most of the time are pizza and gyros. I can eat either of those any day of the week (or multiple days if able).
technology (I try but it has tendrils so deep in me)
Recently it's been where I want to go next for my career. Not really so much physically but what I can do to move up in the business structure and all that good extra-pay stuff. Looks like my masters is soon to start and I'm actually looking forward to some school stuff to start. It's a brave new world, right? Ha.
