Every few years I seem to move some place new - short attention span, maybe. Or curiosity? I grew up in Utah, did a mission in France, moved to the San Francisco Bay Area (my favorite U.S. city!), moved back to Salt Lake and then most recently to Charlotte, NC. Had a couple of career changes in that time, too, but I found my calling as a public radio reporter. They pay me to be nosy. It's a dream come true.
The mundane (but more interesting stuff): I like to read (mainly historical fiction and biographies), listen to music (loud punk, spacey-brit pop, cheesy 70's music, opera, you name it!), play the piano, learning the accordion, watch French films, hike and camp, hang out with my nieces and nephews (if only they didn't live so far away), Skype with friends, eat exotic food (especially sushi, Thai and Indian!), shop at thrift stores and watch TV online (Hulu rocks!)
Looking for people who like live music, foreign films, hiking, hanging out at the coffee shop people watching and drinking herbal tea, trying new hole-in-the-wall restaurants and talking trivia. The bigger the vocabulary, the more likely we are to hit it off. . . but I'm okay with the short-on-words type. As long as you don't mind my frequent energetic bursts about the latest thing I heard on the radio or at the supermarket. It's the reporter in me. And be warned, I ask lots of questions. . . call it interrogation, or fascination. Either way, I'm dying to know what makes you tick. And I have no secrets, so ask away.
