How about we… Buy some books, have some drinks.
How about we… Play some skeeball and other games at Iron Horse.
How about we… check out the Hirshorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.
What I look for in a date:
Confidence in herself and passion about something, whether it's a career, hobby, cause or something else.
An awesome place I've visited:
North Dakota is, surprisingly, the most beautiful place in America. Stockholm is my favorite place I've been abroad.
My perfect Sunday:
Playing softball with my team on the Mall or kayaking along the Potomac. Maybe visiting the Portrait Gallery or the National Gallery of Art.
The movie I've watched the most times:
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
I'm a native Texan and have been bouncing back and forth between the Lone Star State and the District for a while (they both feel like home). I have an incredibly fun job: I'm a journalist, and I get to travel the country writing stories about interesting places and people. I recently stopped doing the whole D.C. group house thing and am happily enjoying my new apartment in Van Ness. Life is pretty good.
My first concert / My dream concert:
Every Pearl Jam concert is a great Pearl Jam concert.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
I know more than your average bear about art history -- especially early Italian renaissance
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
are passionate about something -- I don't care what -- and are smarter than me.
For me, a first date no-no is:
Complaining about someone: an ex, a colleague, a boss, whatever.
What I would bring to show and tell:
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date:
The time I drove my pickup truck through the eye of a hurricane
I secretly want to be:
An urban planner or architect
An infatuation of mine:
Washington Nationals baseball! I go as often as I can.
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
Buy my company and go back to work. I love my job.
One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
I love dogs, especially basset hounds.
I want to come home to:
A dog... but my building prohibits them.
