I'm adventurous and uber-inquisitive about the world around me, to the extent that I have been known to trek to the middle of nowhere in Death Valley to see places where the rocks move by themselves; jump onto a bus taking biologists into the Chernobyl exclusion zone; or take a three day side trip through Bosnia to the site of appearances by the Virgin Mary, despite not being Catholic, or even religious. I'm skeptical and agnostic, but intrigued by all that there is we don't know, awed by nature and the universe and complete humbled by my small place in them. For those who want to know, I generally score as INTP, with occasional forays into E and S.
After people know me a while, it's my dry humor. Sometimes though, it's a little too dry, and people don't even notice that I am hilarious. It's sort of a built in test of how interesting other people are. At least that's what I'm calling it.

When not that: Everything else. I am in love with and in awe of the world, and spend as much of my time as humanly possible seeing as much of it and learning as much about it as I can. Despite considering myself an optimist, I'm also becoming more and more convinced that we've passed the point of no return and are leaving nothing but a disastrous mess for future generations. I find it beautifully hilarious that bridal showers in Latvia include the washing of socks (there's a story, of course), and that there is a word, Mamihlapinatapai, that means, approximately, "a look shared by two people with each wishing that the other will initiate something that both desire but which neither one wants to start." How fantastic is it that there is a word for that?
...are smart as hell with a smart-ass sense of humor, insatiably curious, and in a life that's a bit unconventional in one way or another (don't be bored).
...enjoy spontaneity whether or not it's well planned.
...are in the habit of taking care of yourself, eating reasonably healthy and staying active.
...are strong of mind and will, or have ever been told that you were intimidating, outspoken or opinionated.
... are ready to teach, learn, and explore together.
...know where your passport and your towel are at all times.
A love of moving water, radical politics or guys who shave their heads are worth bonus points. Formidable kissing, flirting and thumb wrestling skills automatically get you past the bouncer and in the door.
