I'd like to boldly go!... No, but seriously I want to travel like a local and relentlessly explore the world
Having arrived at the distinguished age of 20somethingish and having all but accepted the eventual forfeiture of my childhood dreams about being rich and famous, traveling the world seems the next natural step toward what I'm certain will be a really fabulous midlife crisis right around 40somethingish :)
Honestly? I'd like to get to know what 's out there- beyond the microcosm of my experiences. Don't get me wrong, I'm a very proud New Yorker. I really love the city. Exploring it, developing favorite haunts, being continually surprised by it. But I'd like the opportunity to broaden my horizons. To make friends and see other cities trough the eyes of people who love their hometowns the way I love NY.
I have a little mental list of places I want to go and things I want to do when I get there. I'm looking to check a few of those off in the upcoming months! Pennsylvania Dutch Country, Baltimore, D.C., Savannah, New Orleans... I'd love to see the South West. *sigh* Yea, so, I'm planning a lil' trip and if I'm coming to a town near you....

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
....I'd like to sleep on your couch, please!!!
Until recently, I was something of a theatre brat. Little known fact but all actors do is couch surf... well, and wait tables... OK, and occasionally indulge their unrelenting urge to create art. :)
I have fallen asleep on buses, on floors, standing up, surrounded by raging cast parties...
Point is, I sleep like a brick :)
The Perfect Vodka Martini
Music, Movies, and Books
This would be an exceptionally long list...
Right now I am reading "Making Money" by Terry Pratchett and "The Art of War" by Sun Tzu. I've been on a Kaiser Chiefs and Fiona Apple kick this week. And if you've never seen Wet Hot American Summer, you really should. It's a classic and it's pretty damn hilarious. Jus' sayin'. :D
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I have gotten 6 standing ovations in my life so far.
Teach, Learn, Share
I'm Wiccan. I guess I'm mentioning this partly because I assume some people might not be comfortable with it; partly because I imagine others have never met a Wiccan before :)
What can I "teach" or "share"? Well, I read Tarot (very well, if I do say so myself!) and I would be happy to read for you, if you like. I'm also a pretty good cook so if divination isn't your cup of tea (pun intended!) I can always just make dinner :D
I'd love a host who would be interested in teaching me about their lives/hobbies/cool skills. I'm totally up for challenges and exchanges of ideas.
