Are you a Netflix employee?
I am a man with very large appetites.
When it comes to dining with friends and buying shoes, money is no object.
I have no patience for ...
the word "awesome" being used by anyone over the age of 21.
people who drive and talk on their cellphones.
those who place paramount importance on "celebrity" rather than "achievement."
individuals who are concerned with how "cool" they are (which automatically disqualifies them).
...spending a Sunday in bed, sharing the Sunday NYT, particularly the crossword puzzle.
...an evening having dinner w/ friends.
...films that appeal to the mind as well as the heart.
...having my back scratched.
...reading the works of William Faulkner, Thomas Hardy, Ian McEwan, Marilynne Robinson, and Billy Collins
...songs by Stephen Sondheim, the Gershwins, Cole Porter.
...prose and poetry that reveal the intimate sensibility of the writer.
...a handsome or beautiful face.
...hands w/ long fingers (see Jane Fonda or Vanessa Redgrave or Uma Thurman)
...hotel rooms w/ great room service. (the RC in Philly and The Essex House on Central Park West, to name but two).
