I am looking to meet someone kind, funny, interesting, outgoing, and not afraid to try or see new things. That is somewhat generic isn't it? I mean, who isn't looking to meet someone that has all of those qualities. Also, and I don't mean to be shallow here, just honest, I want someone I am physically attracted to. Yeah, I know, we aren't to judge people based on looks and blah blah blah... But come on. If there is no physical attraction, well... Just read more about me and let me know what YOU think.
Me? I'm generally quiet and shy at first, but warm up with the right people and then am pretty outgoing, silly, goofy, and funny.
I can be serious when I need to be or when I feel like it.
I like going to the movies, but not alone. (Well, I have to admit that sometimes I do like going alone, but only because I have somewhat strange tastes in movies and can't find anyone to go anyway. I have gotten over the going to the movies alone thing by now. Otherwise, I'd never go!!)
I like going out to eat.
I like doing a lot of things, but not always alone. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy my alone time and I'm not real clingy. I don't like clingy either. At times, it's nice, but not ALL the time. I don't smother anyone either, at least not intentionally.
My favorite movies are, but not limited to, The Evil Dead (1 and 2), Taxi Driver, Ichi the Killer, Batman Begins, The Thing (1982), Blade Runner, The Blues Brothers, Raising Arizona (actually pretty much any Coen brothers movie)The Fly, The Party Animal, any Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode (not really movies, but kinda)and more, but I can't think of them all right now.
I grew up most of my life in Louisiana, so yes, I have an accent, even though I can't hear it.
I know how to cook.
I did not take a pirogue to school and I do eat alligator, but not possum.
I don't like to hunt, but have nothing against it, unless you don't eat what you kill. That I have a problem with.
I would consider myself a libertarian as far as political views go.
I am handy with a saw, screwdrivers, wrenches, shovels, rakes, and other implements of destruction. I am also handy with a dishwasher, washer and dryer, broom and mop, vacuum cleaner, and other household items that require human dexterity.
I am just as apt to show up with flowers, either bought or fresh from the graveyard, whichever is on the way to where I am going, as I am to show up with something that I think is "cool." Most of the time, the second party fails to see the "cool" factor in the "cool" item, though.
I hang up my "good" t-shirts.
I like my socks folded, not rolled into a ball.
I like to people watch. I may make comments about some of them and get the response that I am "so mean" while the person saying that is laughing.
I like Howard Stern. I don't like Oprah or Rosie O'Donell.
I like ice cream, preferably in pints and of high quality.
I will take any off brand soda, except when it comes to Coke. It IS the real thing.
I keep my finger nails very clean and do not chew them down to the quick. I hate the way that looks.
I have gotten my eyebrows waxed, and must say I was surprised at what a difference it made in my appearance. It hurt like hell too. I don't know how you ladies do it.
I read a lot, but not as much as I'd like to think I do.
I have hot tea at bed time.
I like the cold weather more than searing heat.
I enjoy working with my hands, yet still keep my fingernails clean.
If I were ever in an accident, my mother would be happy to know that, yes, I had on clean underwear.
I prefer to deal with people in a job, but am very shy.
I have not given up hope.
I daydream sometimes.
I wish I could write the great American novel, but I probably never will.
I have hairy toes, like a hobbit, but not that hairy.
I can never get my hair to do what I want it to.
I like antiques, but not the fancy kind. I prefer what many would call "junk."
I still have all the vinyl records I've ever owned.
Any media that comes on an optical disc must be put back in its case when not in use.
I leave my socks on the floor sometimes and my dog runs away with them. My dogs name is Xena. Yes, like the warrior princess. However, she is not as good looking as Lucy Lawless, and, alas, is not a human either. There is more to me than meets the eye, so if you want to know more, just ask.
Movies - This could go on forever. Movies? The Evil Dead (and 2), Taxi Driver, Bridge on the River Kwai, Raising Arizona, The Big Lebowski, Blade Runner, Empire Strikes Back, Office Space, Tarantino, Nolan, Coens, Kurosawa, Eastwood, Cronenberg, Fincher. I'm to the point with movies that I just look at who the director is. If it's someone I really like, I go see it without having to know much about it. I could talk about movies ad nauseum. One of the great passions in my life.
Music - Pearl Jam, Beck, Frank Zappa, White Stripes, Fiona Apple, digging that Adele, Talking Heads, old Black Sabbath, Neil Young. Been listening to a lot of Neil Diamond (I know right?) and Nillson lately. The Beatles (of course) and The Ventures. Hell, I just listen to what I'm in the mood for. I put on my Best of Bootsy Collins CD the other night to listen to "Bootzilla" I even own some Blowfly cassettes.
