I am a nice person, and have a general life goal of improving the world. I tend to give people an "A" when I first meet them, and consider my personality similar to that of a Golden Retriever.One of my favorite things to do is laugh and spend time with friends.I also like dancing, swimming, eating good food (desserts in particular), and making top 5 lists (see below). Apparently, I love to use parentheses. I consider myself a bit dorky, but only in the most endearing and good-looking meaning of the word. My current favorite book is Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer. I love a good fiction novel. Top 5 movies: When Harry Met Sally; Amelie; Goonies; Annie Hall; Harold & Maude.Top 5 "albums": Jackson 5 greatest hits; Blue - Joni Mitchell; Simon & Garfunkel greatest hits; Songs In The Key of Life - Stevie Wonder; ABBA Gold.
