5 things I can't live without: my musical instruments. Oops, we're already over 10. But seriously, musical instruments, copious amounts of ethnic food, sarcasm, prescriptive grammar, and iced tea are probably the current winners.
I like road trips, especially in the northeast during autumn. I like train travel. Kinda hate planes but will take 'em if I have to (hate boats more).
I like dense reading, art films, and silly TV shows.
I like good music. I like loud music. I like symphonies. I like making music even more than I like listening to it.
FOOD. I eat it. Copiously. Ravenously. Everything but whole raw carrots.
I'm the best guest. I'm clean and compact. I'm friendly, not rude, not politically correct or polite either. I'm interesting. I always have something to talk about, but also know when to shut the hell up.
When I'm traveling, I like to be out and about more than I like to be in. At home, it's kinda different. But it's cool, because I'm only a guest, not a host (nobody would want to stay out in the suburbs anyway, right?)
My life motto would either be "jk livin'" (thanks, Matthew McC) if I were joking, or else something like "Take life less seriously every day. The more you think about things, the more unbearable it all gets."
And re: languages listed, I'm not actually fluent in German, and to say that I'm fluent in French is probably a stretch, but if you don't mind it if we talk to each other like a bunch of two-year-olds, then let's go!
