I would love to find someone I can converse with easily and endlessly. I like conversations about philosophy and social justice as much as I like being a complete goofball. I like people who are passionate about something; it doesn't really matter what that is. And I am a total sucker for a cute smile.
I think it’s hilarious when I fall on my face, but I’m glad that it doesn’t happen very often.
I love staying up late at night talking with people when we’re too tired to do anything else.
There are a wide variety of things in this world that remind me of Calvin & Hobbes.
It is a little known secret that playing the drums is the most fun thing in the universe. I have a love for drumming that borders on addiction.
Sometimes I'm quiet and sometimes I'm excitable... I like excitable people. I want someone to laugh with, someone to be silly with, someone to be passionate with.
I like jumping up and down at live shows. I like going for long walks and short bike rides. I like walking in the rain. I like kissing on deserted street corners.
I need to learn to cook more dishes. If you would like to teach me a few things, or learn with me, that would be fun.
I work as a software programmer at a small company... Programming is a lot like working on jigsaw puzzles: it's fun to do, but not much fun to talk about. I'm getting pretty good at summing up my job in 10 seconds and changing the subject. :) It is one of my missions in life to avoid getting a car for as long as possible, so I bike to work everyday, rain or shine.
Music is my passion in life, and I play the drums and sing in a band. We have band practice a few nights a week, but still find plenty of time to spend with friends.
...Preparing for my trip to Spain!!! ...Update: Spain was amazing!! If I spoke better Spanish, I would seriously consider moving there.
...playing the drums very loudly! Making people laugh at funerals. I’ve also been told by many people that I give really good hugs and I’m very proud of that.

"Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."
