How about we… go to a karaoke bar?
An awesome place I've visited:
Prague and Sydney, Australia are two of my absolute favorites.
My perfect Sunday:
I'm a teacher, so it would be in the summer. Get up without an alarm, get a bagel or hit brunch with some friends, then maybe head to the park with a good book.
The movie I've watched the most times:
Probably Dirty Dancing... please don't judge me :-)
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Small-town Connecticut girl likes to sing, dance, and write. Goes to college to become a music teacher. After graduation, moves to Big City for fun adventures with best friends and starts teaching at private school, then at public school in Bronx. Goes back to school for creative writing. Has adventures; signs up for howaboutwe.com for more adventures.
My first concert / My dream concert:
Peabo Brysant (no lie)/Ray Charles
Obscure knowledge I possess:
I probably know far more than is healthy about certain reality tv shows
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
can do the whole sarcastic banter thing but not in a mean-spirited way
For me, a first date no-no is:
texting during the date
What I would bring to show and tell:
More of a talent than an object; I can do an oddly realistic bird tweeting sound through a tiny chip in one of my teeth
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date:
I have many funny stories from the school where I teach, it's too hard to pick just one
I secretly want to be:
in the Ice-Capades
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
spending their life doing something they care about, whatever that may be
An infatuation of mine:
Diet coke, unfortunately. At this point it's more of a toxic relationship I'm continually trying and failing to break away from :-)
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
Still teach in some capacity, but only part-time. The rest of my time would be spent reading, getting better at different instruments, and working on my novel.
One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
I always played well with others
I want to come home to:
A cold beverage, a comfy couch, and good company to shoot the breeze with.
