Sometimes I feel like I haven't accomplished anything by 30, then
realise I've done so much. I've worked in broadcast, I've run my
own award winning games and web business for 5 years, I've taught
for years at a university, I've been an internationally exhibited

most amazing people In the world, and most of my heroes.
Forgetting people's names, but remembering stalker-creepy things about them.
Helping to inspire others to do the most they can in their lives.
Forgetting the lyrics and names of any song, but being able to take a sentence from any situation and sing it to the snippet of a tune plucked from anywhere in the last 50 years.

... if you have a large library of misc books to share with me.
... if you're willing to surprise me at 3am wearing nothing but a trench coat and heels (that is, that this is something you might do. Not to me right now. That would be a little strange. For us both. And you don't even know where I live. I hope)
... if you are into *good* art. Now there's a can of worms.
... if you are not into country music, or have some kind of angelic magic that can teach me to appreciate it.
... if you believe in the FSM. Or maybe that teapot.

... if you like two cooks in the kitchen.
... if you are horribly sure of yourself.
... if you don't fall asleep half way through every film (even if it is kind of cute).
... if you speak a language other than English.
... if you like random.
... if you know yourself.
... if you can double-think.
... if you smell good.
... if you can reason.
... if you know the world is amazing and just want to eat it all up.
... if you will try anything twice, even if you aren't sure how much you liked it the first time.
... if you keep your word.
