I really am 6'7". I come from a very tall family.
Recent transplant to the West. Originally from Upstate New York, lived in France for a year as a Rotary International exchange student, did my BA in East Asian Studies and French translation in Montreal, spent two years studying/working in Beijing and two years working in Milwaukee. Time goes by quickly!
Je parle français, alors si vous voulez parler en français ça me ferait grand plaisir! Je travaille à temps plein comme traducteur français-anglais et mandarin-anglais.
I'm a travel addict. I went to Brazil with my twin sister when we were 15 and I was hooked. I've travelled on 4 continents, lived on 3, and love sharing travel info and stories. Recently got to go back to China and France. Next trip: Italy in December with the hubby. Other places on my list: Panama, Iceland, Malta, Argentina.... tips are welcome!
I'm a New York Times addict, too.
I'm pretty down to earth (cliché, I know). But it's true. I like to get to bed early so I can wake up early. A drink with friends on the weekends in the best part of my week. A glass of wine (or four) and a great meal is my idea of an amazing time. I'm shy, I'm neurotic, and I'm told I breathe loudly. I don't smoke, I don't do drugs, I eat my leafy greens; and I drink skim milk. I love cooking, even if it's simple. There's nothing like knowing exactly what you're putting in your body, am I right?
As for fitness goals, just trying to get stronger and get rid of my chicken legs. I'd like to gradually add mass. I've hit a bit of a plateau recently, but fitness is a lifelong journey, so I'm not worried! I have an insatiable appetite and an ungodly fast metabolism. Damn you lanky genetics!
And last but not least, I don't respond to people without face pictures. A "Hey" or "What's up" one-liner is not an appropriate opener to correspondence by RJ message, and I reserve the right to ignore you. If you want to buddy list me, TALK to me first. How do I know if I want to be your buddy if I haven't exchanged any words with you? How do you know I'm not a total jerk if you haven't exchanged any words with me? Write me a message, I won't bite you!
