After returning from a recent series of trips to California and Asia, I've been spending every waking (not-at-work) moment out of the house, doing all kinds of random stuff (concerts, music, jogging, walks, bars, cafes, ultimate Frisbee, driving, shopping, the gym, wine tasting...). I'm feeling a little restless and always looking to try something fresh and crunchy.
I don't worry about things I can't control. I sometimes convince myself things that don't fall into this category do.
I am a crazy-hard worker. I love independent/challenging/crunchy music and movies. Think Mission of Burma, Pavement, Les Savy Fav, Eternal Sunshine, or David Lynch (Inland Empire had an uncharacteristically hopeful ending). I try not to watch much TV, but -- with great shame (and much laughter) -- might be caught watching Scrubs, House, Arrested Development, or Firefly.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
My ideal date venue involves getting out among people, but I can be persuaded to do otherwise. Dancing is a real possibility, but I'll need a couple drinks first. Something completely off the wall would be awesome too.
