I'm just going to follow these suggestions without too much embellishment.
Ok, I may as well admit it: I've been playing guitar for over 20 years and have been in a LOT of bands. Currently I'm playing and performing in a very successful cover band so music(performing, going to concerts, listening in my truck) is a HUGE part of my life. Also, I really enjoy going to the French Quarter and around New Orleans and being a tourist in my own city.
I've had the same job for over 5 years driving a truck for a national company. It's hard work sometimes but I do enjoy it and I work with some cool people.
My "hobbies" are: Sitting here strumming my acoustic, reading(fantasy/epic poetry/classics), watching movies(comedy/action/adventure), playing a video game every now and again, riding my bike whenever I get the chance and gardening believe it or not. Nothing out of the ordinary really. I do love some Saints football.
I'm no stand up comedian but I have a pretty good sense of humor and can always make my friends laugh. A lot.
I generally like animals, but I wuv basset hounds and beagles.
My taste in music huh? Oh boy here we go: I like heavy metal, progressive rock and classical music and not much else in between. So there.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Something kinda conventional: dinner or a bar or a just hang out and get to know each other sort of thing. The later dates are where things can get more interesting.
