Things I love to do: Talk about current events over coffee at a café - I dig neighborhood joints where the waitstaff and clientele are laid-back and the coffee americano is robust; collaborate on creative projects (esp. theater); eat scrumptious food at low-key restaurants; go to Prospect park and hang; go to the theatre; get lost on New York City's mean streets with no specific destination in mind; long conversations that go round and round but somehow have a beginning, middle and end.
Often the first things people say when they meet me are: "Wow, you're tall!" or "Your feet are so big!". It used to annoy me but I've learned to accept my large-ness.

Going to a dinner party/seeing a play/going to a musical event of some kind.
Cooking an easy and practical dinner at home. Afterwards, I'll read a book or watch something in my (way too long) Netflix queue.
I have a bi-weekly dance party at my apartment. So far, I'm the only one on the dance floor, which is a shame because the DJ is crazy talented! [brushes off shoulder]
