I'm recently arrived in Brisbaneand in a fit of pique this evening I've decided to update this little profile that I'd let languish when I ran off to Canada. I hope it provides you a bit of entertainment and some sense of what I'm about.
Unfortunately as a new transplant to the city I don't know too much about the lay of the land, but would love to learn any preferred haunts you know (unless actually haunted, in which case bring your own proton pack) or other great things around the city.
For those that have put a lot of thought into your profiles, thanks in advance for your effort and the enjoyable read--you're a cut above.
A brief tao of me:
-board games, not reality TV; (but well written shows are grand)
-driven, not consumed (see 1, 3, 5, and 7 year plans);
-simple tastes, except for technology;
-saver, not a spender (except for you guessed it... technology);
-adores sleeping in on weekends
I'll be sure to add things as they come to me. Feel free to drop me a line and dig a little deeper!
Yet more : likely to rearrange rooms every 6 months, fashion unconscious but willing to learn, admires the well travelled but may be world's worst tourist, wonders why so many fish have misplaced their clothing, almost finished Pride & Prejudice, can disappear into Home Depot for four hours, can fix your computer (would be very impressed if done in kind), offers choice of being a good cook with very small repertoire or amusing cook with delusions of adequacy.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I do horribly at the whole coffee thing--I don't drink coffee, and chide myself for caving in and delighting in a hot chocolate. Far better to pick up a slurpee and stroll about while making up stories about people we see. Anything in the cultural scene (musicals, stage drama) or anything that allow for honest chilling and great conversation.
Other than that, a great first date is January 1st, 1900.
