How about we… go to a salsa class.
How about we… go roller skating!
An awesome place I've visited:
Sweet Harmony Cafe. They make amazing soups, salads, and obscenely decadent desserts.
My perfect Sunday:
Get up semi-late, go for a trail run, go to mass, have a huge bruch-lunch, and spend the rest of the day relaxing, reading, or baking.
The movie I've watched the most times:
The Fellowship of the Ring. The compelling story, combined with the gorgeous scenery (and Ranger *ahem*) were enough to satify for many watchings in themselves. With the addition of special features and actor narratives, I've practically worn out this DVD.
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Most of the important things in my adult life have roots in my past. I've always been very interested in science, beginning with space (and sci-fi) and now I'm working with bacteria to learn about adaptations to extreme environments. I'm a runner, which started with my dad taking me with him on runs when I was in third grade. I'm a spiritual and compassionate person, which is how I was raised, but I am also very assertive and focused (some people have trouble reconciling these seeming opposites in my personality). Lastly, my softer more domestic side loves to bakes and snuggle with the kitty, but HATES doing dishes.
My first concert / My dream concert:
My first big concert was the Red Hot Chili Peppers in Boston. They were AMAZING and I can't wait to see if they end up doing a show in NY after all this foot surgery hubub. My dream concert is to see the Killers, honestly not because they're my favorite artist (though they're up there) but because I've seen most of the other bands I idolize already!
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
Wear cologne. The right one can just make me melt.
For me, a first date no-no is:
Talking politics. Save the major controversial topics for later!
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
Well rounded. In shape, intelligent, successful, and happy. Huh. That makes me sounds really demanding. No wait. I just have high standards.
