How about we… go bowling at Quinnz Pinz! I've never been there. (Bowling's not exactly my strong suit, but I still get a kick out of it.)
How about we… Get dinner at Bugaboo Creek Steakhouse. I hear they have a talking moose.
Things I like to do:
Laugh, sleep, solve problems, exercise/work outdoors, build & fix things, watch movies, snowboard, row, be challenged, learn new things.
An awesome place I've visited:
Whistler, BC. SO much snow!
My perfect Sunday:
Great company and no plans, except dinner at my favorite restaurant.
The movie I've watched the most times:
It's a tie between Pink Floyd The Wall and The Sound of Music, both from when I was a kid. Weird, I know! Some of my favorites are The Sixth Sense, Last of the Mohicans, Caddyshack, A Beautiful Mind, and The Sweetest Thing.
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Grew up in Gardiner, NY. Went to college for civil & environmental engineering. Got into rowing for my school's team, and I loved it. Did engineering and construction work, with lots of travel. Now I'm back in Gardiner, self-employed, honing my acting skills, and looking for ways to leave the world a better place than I found it. And have a good time while I'm at it. How many sentences is that? Do fragments count?
My first concert / My dream concert:
First: the Hooters, in the local college gymnasium. What can I say, it was the 80's. / Dream: Johnny Cash. Dammit.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
My sister recently pointed out that I know lots of ways to stick things together. Also, I know more than I ever wanted to about cell towers. And I can explain why the sky is blue.
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
Have an easy laugh, a positive outlook, and a willingness to try new things.
For me, a first date no-no is:
Insisting that we go to the roof of your building to rendezvous with the mother ship. Wait, I'd actually be into that.
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date:
The time I saw someone being cremated.
I secretly want to be:
The guy in the Dos Equis commercials, "The Most Interesting Man in the World". Those ads crack me up!
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
Ridiculously happy together.
An infatuation of mine:
Building stone walls. Improv theater. Getting involved in grassroots environmental causes. Being a thorn in the sides of incompetent politicians. I've got a lot of infatuations. I could go on...
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
Start a think tank to come up with new uses for the rubber chicken. Okay, really: I'd make sure my family and I are taken care of, then put the remaining money to work on environmental issues, most likely through open space preservation. Then the chicken thing, I don't think that would cost much.
One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
I'm a great catch, and I hardly ever cried as a baby.
