How about we… go visit the Butterfly Haven greenhouse at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum.
How about we… check out the 14 acres of hands-on exhibits at the Museum of Science and Industry.
How about we… rent bikes and take a ride through the Skokie Northshore Sculpture Park.
An awesome place I've visited:
Little Cayman (boasting more iguanas than people), De Goat n Sheep Farm near Durango, Mesa Verde, whatever the name is of that mountain town in Chili, the Night Market & Buddist Temples in Taiwan
My perfect Sunday:
Coffee of course. As this is the ideal perfect Sunday, I'll have to say I would like to simultaneously stay in bed all day and rise before dawn to greet the sun with yoga on a mountain top. Work on some art, hike, bike, kayak, wander neighborhoods, read in a hammock on an isolated island beach, have my house magically clean itself and feed me a whole foods vegetarian feast while fanning me with palm fronds.
The movie I've watched the most times:
An Angel at my Table, the most disturbing movie I recently saw was Of Dolls and Murder.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
Whole grain bread is the food of the gods! and other interesting factoids that I didn't make up.
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
are intelligent, tattooed, and worldly.
For me, a first date no-no is:
running naked through Millennium Park waving sparklers?
What I would bring to show and tell:
my kick-ass biscottis & whole wheat cinnamon rolls.
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
hitchhiking their way around Europe. biking across Africa. walking the Pan-American Highway (not literally on the highway, that would just be too loud & carbon monoxide -ish. We are talking dreams and plans here.
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
dance and shout with joy, take everyone I love on the vacation of their lives, and become a traveling philanthropist.
I want to come home to:
a gypsy camp complete with fire jugglers.
