I'm looking for someone kind, curious, intelligent, and warm who has a very low tolerance for boredom.
I like to stay active when I'm not at work- I cook; I take care of my pets (I have 5); I rock climb; I lift; I read. When it's nice out I like hiking and boating out on the lake.
Giving gifts (once I get to know someone)
Crossword puzzles. Scrabble.
Currently reading: The Mars Trilogy, 1984
Movies: Adaptation, Unforgiven, Indiana Jones, Soul Kitchen, Spirited Away. I'm a huge, huge movie geek. I love going to the movies. I listen to film podcasts.
Most recent thing I saw that I loved: Carol.
Shows: The Wire, Breaking Bad, Fargo, ATLA, Firefly. I watch The Daily Show religiously (and have been pretty pleased with the new host). Last Week Tonight.
Music: past favorites include The Kills, The Dead Weather, Janelle Monae, Beck, Radiohead, VNV Nation, Apocalyptica (saw them in concert- they are the best band on earth). I have a completely unironic love of metal music left over from my high school days.
Currently listening to Grimes and CHVRCHES on repeat. Also PPL MVR.
Food: my favorite food is cooked oysters, and seafood in general. Good luck finding that in Ithaca though . I'm a fan of anything with curry. I like to try new things constantly. (I do not identify as a foodie, though. You won't catch me cooing about mouthfeel or anything like that. )
Games and puzzles
Being in a place where I can teach and learn
Friends and family
The world always being strange (Let's keep it that way)
Preventing epidemic disease with math
Politics- I don't have a political mind, so I read and think about a lot of news commentary to try to figure stuff out.
What I should read next
I think Friday nights are overrated. My favorite time to do stuff is during the day, when there's sun.
