Well I live in Columbia City. I can usually be found bouncing all around Seattle getting into all kinds of trouble.
Why should you get to know me? I can saber a bottle of champagne open with a butter knife. It's best not to use the good champagne, though. Other than that, I'm a serious smartass who will make you laugh as well as being someone who is thoughtful and considerate of others, and run-on sentences really turn me on.
I love going to see bands, comedians, and plays. Live performances are something everyone needs to see more of because they truly give you an appreciation for the arts and the talent and dedication it takes to get good at something that's so transient. Well maybe not everyone needs to see more of it. Just enough people that there are still enough tickets left for me and my friends.
I love to cook, especially elaborate dishes that take way too much time. If you have your grandmother's cookbook, chances are I want to see it.
Also, total tango addict. See below for more details.
I love, love, love to cook, but I am just not crazy enough to try to work in a restaurant.
About six years ago, I started dancing Argentine Tango (yes - there are different types of tango), and its consumed a fairly large part of my life. I go out dancing anywhere from 2-4 days a week, and I'm really loving the challenge and the dedication it requires. At some point, I'd love to make the holy tango pilgrimage to Buenos Aires.
I don't expect someone I'm seeing to take up tango, but I do expect that someone I'm seeing is OK with me dancing.
Also, I host a bar trivia night in Columbia City on Thursdays. You should come by sometime.

My sense of wonder

I am so screwed.
