How about we… go see a band that neither of us has heard of.
How about we… test our Boy Scout skills and try to start a bonfire without a match. Then we can make s'mores.
My perfect Sunday:
Driving out to a remote beach on a sunny summer afternoon with and then going swimming on a day with no wind.
The movie I've watched the most times:
All of the back to the future movies. This was an accident, for a while I was living in a share house without internet and this was the only DVD I owned. I would watch it whenever I couldn't sleep because I thought having seen it so many times before it would bore me to sleep. It never worked ;)
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Went to uni, got a programming job got sick of that. Went independent contractor. Went broke in the recession. Fell in love with too many americans and without considering the yanks immigration system makes getting into the country to actually be with them impossible. Realized I actually hate computer programming and started looking for an entirely new career path.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
Anything to do with the history of computing or answers to obscure myths and facts about cars. Not very girly I know. I was a daddy's girl for sure.
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
I'll have to split this up since it seems to be very different between guys and girls. Guys: The generic pretty boy look. I wish I didn't like them. I don't want to be one of those bi chicks who prefers guys who look a bit girly, but I just can't help it. Girls: Are redheads. You have to be a natural redhead, it doesn't work if she dyed her hair red. Only god knows why. Everyone: have a geeky sense of humour.
For me, a first date no-no is:
The movie date. Not interested. Yes, let's choose the date idea that gives the minimum possible chance of actually talking because that might lead to getting to know each other.
What I would bring to show and tell:
Almost certainly something i've made. What that would be depends, because i'm always building some new project.
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date:
There is so many! Ask me to pick one I think you'll like. There are also plenty i'm sure people /won't/ like. The thing about adventures is anything which makes a good adventure story is /not/ fun to actually live :)
I secretly want to be:
Right now? Kari Byron off mythbusters. It changes from time to time.
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
Creative in a clever way and can manage to do creative stuff in spite of the harsh realities of having to pay all the bills, like I aspire to do.
One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
This question is sooo badly not fair!
