How about we… grab a bucket of sidewalk chalk (and some spiked lemonade) and make a HUGE drawing.
How about we… find a park and a playground, and swing away our troubles.
How about we… buy a bunch of flowers and hand them out to strangers to see their reactions, then grab a bite to eat.
An awesome place I've visited:
Joshua Tree National Park in SoCal... definitely the inspiration for Dr. Seuss' art style.
My perfect Sunday:
Kayaking on the lake, jogging through the park, people-watching at the farmer's market... something low-key, but dynamic. And yours?
The movie I've watched the most times:
Either The Iron Giant or The Princess Bride (that was the rainy day go-to movie in elementary school).
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Let's try one, for your sake and mine: A Midwest native, and fresh out of a five-year detour in Texas, I'm dependable when it matters, spontaneous when it doesn't, and willing to try [nearly] everything once. Let's play! (Okay that was two - three if you count this one).
Obscure knowledge I possess:
Ha, what a subjective statement... I'm a walking library of Disney songs, and the MacGyver of costume parties.
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
speak their mind, for better and worse.
For me, a first date no-no is:
Smoking - my one deal-breaker. Other than that, the quirkier the better... or at least more memorable.
What I would bring to show and tell:
A good story and some pictures (or it didn't happen).
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date:
Our haunted girl scout camp encounter on an overnight camping trip.
I secretly want to be:
A ninja? I kind of like who I am now.
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
Obviously not a pirate... that wouldn't work too well with the whole ninja thing. How about someone who wants to be themselves? That works.
An infatuation of mine:
Escape and exploration... lakes, river, mountains, forests, and waterfalls make for one happy camper.
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
still do what I do now - just with more adventures in between.
One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
Good question. Ask her?
