Other details... I'm a selective science-fiction nerd (quality counts, makers of shlock TV), partial to BSG and DS9 (and if you don't know what those are, I won't hold it against you)... I'm a political animal, I keep up with what's what in DC... I'm not nearly as into music as most of my friends are, but I enjoy rock 'n' roll tunage from my youth as much as newer stuff by the likes of Aimee Mann and Paul Westerberg and Fountains of Wayne... I speak pidgin Japanese, which used to be good enough to get by but has gotten very, very stale due to lack of practice... I have an ear for accents... I haven't eaten meat since 1987, though I've gone back-and-forth on seafood (its been on the diet for the past few years); mostly for environmental and health reasons, but my consumption of coca-cola might offset those benefits a bit.
As for who I'm looking for, I'd like to meet someone who has her own blend of complexities and layers and dichotomies. Someone thoughtful, energetic, and complex, with a bit of nerdiness, an appreciation for "chick flicks," and a high silly quotient. And if she could teach me to dance, that'd be cool, too. Dealbreakers include 21st-century Republicans, smokers, and the cat-allergic — I have two felines in the home and life with me means life with cat fur on most of my stuff.
What else would you like to know? Questions encouraged.
I am introspective, liberal, and generous
I'm good at cartooning and portraiture, though I am out of practice.
I'm not as into music as most of my contemporaries seem to be, but I like Melissa Etheridge, Tom Petty, Semisonic, Aimee Mann, The Beatles, tuneage of that nature. I still like the stuff I heard on the radio when I was a kid, too, Fleetwood Mac and Boston and the like.
Foodwise, I grew up with Mexican and still love it in its vegetarian forms. Spinach lasagne is fantastic. I never tire of Indian food.
My TV habits have included the nerd-centric, e.g. all Joss Whedon creations, the new and improved Battlestar Galactica, Quantum Leap, and most of the Star Treks; also classic sitcoms like Mary Tyler Moore, which I have been Netflixing; the British hilarity of "The IT Crowd"; the greatness that is "Mad Men"; and the genius that was the Aaron Sorkin run on "The West Wing." I am a latecomer to "Dr. Who" after discovering "Torchwood."
