My father was in the military, and we moved every few years when I was a kid, so I don't really have a "home." However, although I spent my formative years in Georgia and lived the longest in Los Angeles, I feel the strongest bond to that city down by the banks of the river Charles.
I have the uncanny ability to listen to a song a hundred times and still not know the words.
I've been told I make a face when I dance - a face that has been described as "a combination of intense concentration and fear." I don't dance a lot.
I enjoy a good, fruity mixed drink. I don't mean like a rum and coke. I mean a concoction where the liquor is drowning in the flavors of tropical fruits and islandy goodness.
When people talk to me I have a bad habit of breaking eye contact and just staring off in the distance. They often mistake this for me being disinterested or upset, when in actuality I am just thinking of what they are telling me. The one advantage of this is that if I am actually disinterested I can say, "No, I'm listening. You know about my bad habit of not making eye contact when concentrating..."

Oh, and for the people who haven't Saved By The Bell (lucky you), I have been described as a "surprisingly graceful" skater (roller & ice).
You like walking, trying new restaurants, and exploring places big and small.
You are up for a good conversation about pretty much everything --- politics, sports, tv, movies, pop culture, even how you made good time on the freeway!
You are okay with our differences. I wouldn't want to meet someone who is exactly like me --- where's the fun in that?
A partner in crime, etc.
