The people I'm most attracted to are those who show their passion gladly. Particularly their aestethic, intellectual, or political passions (though I don't have a good grasp of politics myself). Sometimes when they're sharing an experience, it sounds as if they're talking about their crush: This gorgeous book they've read, this really hot piece of music, this cutest little bird who just ate from their hand. Doesn't have to be a rare bird or anything.
I'm beginning to suspect that monogamy is not what I look for, but apart from that I'm open for what comes along... my fantasy, though, is to meet someone I connect with, maybe in a way that will raise the pulse a little, start a buzz in the back of the head and have us both just a little restless.
Movies and TV-series: Blade Runner, Buffy, Babylon 5, Battlestar Galactica... apparently things that begin with a B. But add Gilmore Girls, American Beauty, West Wing and A Few Good Men to things that have made an impression, and Back to the Future, the 1987 Transformers movie, The Matrix, and Star Wars to things I've watched so many times my attention now drifts away if i try.
Food: Generally curious about food, and like the idea of foods I have never heard of before, or never really thought of as food before. Liking the idea doesn't always lead to action, though, I rarely take the initiative to seek it out. Of things I've actually tried, I like British foods, particularly those with boiled meat and thick gravy, Mexican foods (though I try go easy on the heat because it burns my guts as well), and most things with sausage in it. Occasionally I'll try to make the sausage myself.
Music: Winterreise (presently). The Rite of Spring and Pictures at an exhibition (always). Dvořák (generally). Besides that, both classical and modern music that has a little bite, takes some effort to digest. I'm generally interested in broadening my musical horizons, and maybe just a little scared of talking about music at all... maybe you're the one who'll challenge me on that fear?
A certain amount of solitude.
At least a cup or two of coffee a day
Somewhere to take down notes.
An e-book reader and a selection of paper books, so I can vary.
The twirping, twittering, chattering and schreeching of city birds when I go to the park.
Oh, and also things like what I should have said in that argument three years ago, what new points to bring up in some ongoing discussion with a friend, and things that could happen in whatever book I'd like to write someday.
I'm looking to expand my typical-evening-repertoire though, and might do experiments like going to a concert, or having coffee with two or maybe three people at once.
... you want to suggest an addition to my typical-evening-repertoire.
... you have visited my profile and hope that I am going to message you, but decide not to wait while I gather up the courage.
... or if you find yourself in need of a not-too-reliable cuckoo-clock.
