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.
... You want to go boating out on the lake
... You want to go see The Lobster (great date movie, or greatest date movie?)
... You want to bake scones (I am starting to learn how to make scones)
... You want to come to hedgehog tea. Think "cat cafe," but with hedgehogs
