How about we… I haven't been to the Natural History Museum in a while. Maybe a drink at Schiller's on the Lower East after that.
How about we… Go for a walk through the park and then grab a beer at a sidewalk cafe. Or we could scrap that, rent a car and get out of the city for a day (might be in favor of that one).
An awesome place I've visited:
A village freezer, dug 30 feet deep under the arctic tundra, in northern Canada. It was this eerie this labyrinth of rooms and halls carved into the permafrost and each family had a room for whatever they hunted throughout the year. That was one of the crazier family vacations my Mom and Dad planned.
My perfect Sunday:
(In New York..) Sleep in > Coffee, paper, brunch > Central Park romping > Central Park napping > Relaxing on couch with movie/magazine > Late night run.
The movie I've watched the most times:
Maybe Constant Gardener? Seen that one a few times
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Grew up a bit all over the place - mainly Oregon/Australia, then school for journalism, now in New York covering major local / national / international news. In the lower east side and love the city, enjoy covering stories outside the country a lot more, dream about escaping, but not for a while yet.
My first concert / My dream concert:
Would love to have seen Dylan back in the mid 60s.
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
Passionate about what they do. And are the right balance of confident / kind.
For me, a first date no-no is:
Pretentiousness. and ditziness.
I secretly want to be:
One of those people that re-invents themselves numerous times throughout their lives, and is well-respected in each new field / position they find themselves in. Tough to do. Would imagine it takes a lot of concentration to not get complacent.
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
In a badass team of world-traveling-life-living-excellence. And someone who has a fondness for the mountains.
An infatuation of mine:
Driving through the night out west. Or my New york equivalent - late night runs back-and-forth across the bridges. And good light. Can't beat good light.
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
Probably build a cabin in the mountains, get a good library started, find a few dogs to have around and call it good.
I want to come home to:
A partner in crime. And a cool breeze running across clean sheets.
