I'm not very good at describing myself, but when other people describe me, I would hope that they use some combination of: nice, funny, well-intentioned and slightly awkward. I may not be all of those things...but I'd be happy if I could at least qualify for three out of four.
Looking to meet new people, and hopefully, a great guy who is confident, can laugh at himself, give me a hard time when I'm being an idiot and let me pretend that I am actually a good cook!
I'm also a self-professed news junkie and probably spend way too much time watching CNN, listening to NPR or reading the newspaper. I love to travel, especially to Latin America...in fact, I will jump at any chance to live/work/play in a Spanish-speaking country.
making friends with the local dry cleaner, ordering things in Spanish when I've had one too many drinks, painting walls, inadvertently leaving coats in bars/restaurants, falling asleep anywhere except my bed, eavesdropping on conversations while riding Muni, talking my way out of speeding tickets, making espresso, and enjoying the smaller things in life
Things I'm not so good at:
drawing, sitting still, turning off lights, finishing one week's Economist before the next week's issue shows up, finding a parking spot on the street, using Groupons before they expire, ironing, pretending that I like Indian food
sense of humor.
a good run.
