An awesome place I've visited:
Chichen Itza, the Lost Coast, any number of theaters (California Theater in SJ is great), any used bookstore, the woods I grew up in, the beaches I grew up near... I'll have a MUCH better list in a few years!
My perfect Sunday:
An early start and late finish, lots of sun, tennies on my feet, lots of laughter among friends, a ballgame or a beach or a tree to climb, cuddling, a drink and a good meal
The movie I've watched the most times:
Jaws, The Big Lebowski, Grease, Commando, Big Trouble in Little China, Aladdin, Lord of the Rings, Braveheart, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Prestige
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
A small town, a tight-knit family, baseball, lots of trees and an ocean, words, a Bay upgrade, college, uncertainty, growth, smiles...
My first concert / My dream concert:
How about ALL of 'em (chronologically): Tenacious D, Rascal Flatts/Gary Allan/The Wreckers, Journey/Def Lep, Wolfmother/Heartless Bastards, Fitz & the Tantrums... I had tickets to the Psychedlic Furs next month, but it was canceled, damn it! I'd like to see Scissor Sisters at some point, and I've seen a lot of musicals, which I prefer to concerts anyway.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
Show tunes, sasquatch, geography, college sports, movies, how to make just about any sentence or paragraph work better.
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
Know how to wear a ballcap, are intelligent, don't act like a gift to mankind, can throw/shoot a ball, wear glasses (especially if they can pull off the look in an unconventional way), have light and/or bright eyes, laugh louly/heartily/uniquely, are energetic, inspire.
For me, a first date no-no is:
talking too much about ex stuff, a generally jaded view of things, silence, taking some kind of drug mid-date so I have to ask a restaurant hostess to track you down in the bathroom (not that I have experience with that...)
What I would bring to show and tell:
a picture of my family...or something I wrote
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date:
Probably my nightmare date story, now that I finally have one
I secretly want to be:
a European footballer or 1940s/50s Cary Grant (or Gene Kelly from the same time period)
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
with me, happy, admired, creative, fulfilled, smiling/laughing
An infatuation of mine:
All the possibilities, legs, modern/sustainable/prefab architecture, midweek Giants day games, trees made for climbing
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
Travel, read, create a job for myself that doesn't feel like a job, do good deeds
One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
That I am nice, authentic, smart, funny, articulate, creative
I want to come home to:
A smile that I can feel and is impossible to keep a straight face to
