Damian :: the questionnaire
Your favourite virtue ::
Your favourite qualities in a man ::
I admire the 'resilience' of humans beings (their drive to continue with life in spite of tragedy or loss).
I am also fascinated by the flip side of the coin. Humans are fallible creatures. A scar or a fault can (at times) help to heighten someone's beauty.

A wide variety of activities helps to keep things interesting (including work), but for the most part --> dancing, sleeping-in, and chilling with my brother and sister, are among my preferences.
Your idea of happiness ::
Bitches and Money.

A bitch with money

Where the grass is greenest >> at the mo, that means back home in Australia (preferably Melbourne).
