As far as my talents go, I am sort of a Renaissance man...jack of all trades, master of none. Both my left and right brain work great, except when drinking. I'm an engineer by day, violinist by night.
I'm somewhat athletic, meaning that I can be tricked into exercising by (1) making me chase a ball or a disc or (2) playing in the great outdoors. Also, I take care of my health.
I can cook a meal without using a microwave. If you convince me you are awesome, I may even cook for you. Belgian beef stew and kale salad.
In my spare time, I have been known to travel to new places, because I love trying new things and opening my mind. Oh, and of course, did I mention all the new foods?
As far as the big picture, I do not know the details of what I want to do, but I know that I am heading in the right direction and making mostly right turns.
I'm good at cooking. Belgian-style beef stew, roasted potatoes, and kale salad are some of the highlights. I love to cook!
Taking an occasional photo that turns out really good.
Playing in the snow. Cross-country skiing may be my favorite thing ever. I also downhill ski.
I usually do more listening than talking. Don't take that as a sign that I'm not engaged in the conversation.
I get along with most people. I'm bad at making enemies.
I'm a calm person. My friend once spent 2 years trying to piss me off.
movies: Office Space, anything Pixar, a lot of Coen Brothers stuff, Spirited Away, Amelie, just to name a few. Movies that are funny in unconventional/creative ways. Planet Earth in HD. Visually engaging films, preferably with a good story.
food: Yes, please.
And I may be sitting by a fire.
I'd like to go out to the symphony or some other live music one of these Friday nights, though.
...you have a sense of humor and a ready smile.
...you are open to trying new things
...you fancy new foods
...you are intelligent. Smart is sexy.
...you can juggle knives and flaming torches while dancing flamenco on a giant inflatable turtle going over Multnomah Falls...upside down...while whistling "Sheila sells seashells by the seashore".
