How about we… try and find the best veggie burger in all of Boston.
How about we… go see the movie "Being Flynn," then go to a Boston Bar
An awesome place I've visited:
the vaults hidden under the Vatican
My perfect Sunday:
Really good brunch. Walking and talking. Some sitting in big comfortable chairs drinking tea or beer and reading, or lounging in Boston Commons when it's warm
The movie I've watched the most times:
Little Miss Sunshine
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Grew up in a boring town near Philly. Got into punk music and then poetry. Was the only vegetarian my high school's wrestling team ever had. Went to college for English, Creative Writing, and Theater. Now I work as an educator and youth mentor, working towards being a poetry professor in ten years.
My first concert / My dream concert:
was in seventh grade when I went with my dad to a free Mighty Mighty Bosstones show in a park by the river.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
punk bands, poetry, greek myths, Spiderman... I've got a few
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
have cute lip or nose rings, but mainly can talk about art but also can chill with a good craft beer or two.
For me, a first date no-no is:
getting along really well, but then finding out that I'm a year or two younger and treating me differently.
What I would bring to show and tell:
a picture of my book shelf. I think my taste in books shows a lot about who I am, but also allows for a lot of conversation and bonding.
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date:
oh god... I have no idea. Totally depends on the day and what's been extra exciting me. Almost any phrase can remind me of a story. Maybe ask about my one person show, my working manuscript, or some of the classes I've taught.
I secretly want to be:
a super hero. Spiderman gets by on a teacher's salary. why can't I?
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
content but not over comfortable, continually talking, listening, and working towards growing both as individuals and as partners
An infatuation of mine:
comics books. poetry. cooking for friends. reading. Okay, I have a few.
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
invest, so I don't just run through it really quickly, but mainly I would work on my poetry and my one man shows and volunteer. And cook and work out more.
One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
that I've been looking out for other people since I was less than a year old. the sixth month old in gymboree who was being ignored by his/her baby sitter dropped his/her binkee and I went over to give it to the baby. My mom likes to tell this story.
I want to come home to:
A dog. I can't wait to have a dog again. People I love, a good bookshelf, a dog, and maybe a record player are what I need to know a place is home
