Default Plant ID Please?

I was out at Lowe's looking for upholstery staples I still can't find. The below plant fell into my shopping cart and begged me to take it home. Of course it isn't labeled. It sort of looks like a Hoya with much thinner leaves and not as much substance (thickness) to the leaves as a Hoya. The vines are all very small and all green in color. All I know is it's a tropical. It would be nice to have some sort of clue so I can research cultural needs.

Anyone recognize, or take an educated guess? Thanks in advance!

hmmm, lots of possibilities..
can you post a pic of what the growth lead looks like? is it a thin whip that reaches far or more like a short tendril?

also, what do the roots look like? thick or thin?

That does look a lot like a Hoya though! There are lots of varieties out there with very different looking leaves, though I'm not sure how they vary in substance.
