Also I'll kick your ass at Scrabble™.
Seriously, I have no idea. Red hair? Politeness? Sense of humor? Language skillz? I look younger than I am, so maybe that. Who knows.
Movies: I love seeing movies in the theater, especially at The Plaza! Landmark Midtown ain't bad, either. The Big Lebowski, Empire Strikes Back, and Pee-Wee's Big Adventure are hopelessly deadlocked in a three-way tie for my favorite movie, though Wes Anderson does his level best to supplant them with each subsequent offering. Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, pretty much all the Coen brothers films, Rob Roy, Waking Ned Devine, the Nolan Batman films, I love documentaries (Jodorowsky's Dune being a recent fave), Amelie, all the movies from the Spinal Tap/Best In Show troupe, the Lord of the Rings films, Raiders of the Lost Ark, the good Star Wars Trilogy, and suspenseful scary stuff. Not bullshit gimmicky scary stuff, more like The Shining and the original Omen and Sling Blade. Fast Times, Anchorman, Holy Grail, I could go on.
TV: Currently into The Walking Dead, Boardwalk Empire (so sad to see it end), Game of Thrones, True Detective, and Fargo. And The Daily Show, of course. Love the classic Simpsons and Family Guy periods, and I dig Bob's Burgers. I'm not a slave to TV, but I do love great shows, and think marathon binge-watching is a fantastic activity to pursue with a like-minded lady. Defunct shows I love: The X-Files, Millennium (that show was the dang JAM), Pushing Daisies, Arrested Development, My Name is Earl.
I read too slowly, so I don't read nearly enough, but I love Devil in the White City, Tolkien, John Hodgman, and the little bit of Salinger that I've read. I've got a stack of books a mile high that I just never get around to reading. Playing music and watching movies always seem to supersede reading; it's probably the thing about myself I'd most like to alter.
I'm pretty open with food, but I'm suspicious of casseroles. Super spicy stuff gives me the heartburn, and anything with vinegar gives me the yuck face. So I'll try pretty much anything non-super-spicy non-vinegary non-casseroley.
At least one creative outlet
Sorry, that's like seven things. Math is hard.
And, for the record, I don't mind being asked out. Not one bit. Have at it.
