Getting to know me

Say you are meeting a new person — blind date, new friend, whoever — and you want them to have some idea of who and what kind of person you are. But you can’t actually tell them in so many words. Instead, you have to give them a box with a dozen things in it for them to look at/read/listen to/taste/whatever. What would you put in the box? (A copy of your journal or a piece of paper with the URL to your journal on it would be the same thing as just telling them directly yourself, so that’s not allowed.)
