To take a break from my normally super geeky routine, I’ve been trying to come up with a list of things I’d like to see in a girl. Perhaps this will be viewed as a list of demands, but they aren’t required, just things I hope for. But after going through a whole bunch of things, I realized there’s really just one thing that matters.
Here’s the list:
she’s pondered wearing suspenders she can sing she can listen to Beethoven, Kanye West, Hall & Oats and still have room for Cake she has a favorite Star Wars movie she understands the reference 1.21 gigawatts she’s okay with being compared to Liz Lemon she’s comfortable hanging around on the couch on a rainy day reading or watching tv she thinks she’s beautiful she lets me cook and bake she lets me buy her mozzarella sticks she can beat me in at least one video game she knows who Shawn and Gus are she likes Simon Pegg she has ambition she’s passionate about something she likes animals she has a favorite superhero she knows James Bond villains she can quote movies (any movie is fine, I’m not super picky) she watches the Discovery Channel she likes TV she likes books she likes cuddling she is ticklish she enjoys rain and snow she has a beautiful smile she knows who MacGyver is she’s interested in history she makes her own halloween costumes she’s willing to tell me her secrets she likes Bruce Willis she’s heard of Doctor Who she has dreams she likes my friends she plays board games she’s a fan of delicious flavor she lets me take care of her when she’s sick she calls herself a geek she likes that I am a geek she knows the words to “Don’t Stop Believing” she plays air guitar she dances like no one’s watching she wants to travel she makes awkward silence comfortable she is six degrees from Kevin Bacon she could debate the pros and cons of time travel she laughs at and with me she also has a crush on Nathan Fillion she can make me laugh she’s smart she would go to Jurassic Park she has a favorite sweatshirt she’s a dreamer she won’t let me give up on my dreams she likes penguins she likes to look at the night skyshe loves me for me
I know it sounds sappy and whatnot, but it’s true. All of that other stuff doesn’t matter as much as that last one.
Oh, and one other thing. She owns a t-shirt with sort of geek reference. That is a requirement.
