I know that this is potentially a deal-breaker, so I'm putting it at the head of my profile: I don't have a car. I am car-free by choice. I hate driving, and I'd rather spend the money associated with automotive upkeep on books and gadgets.
I am an introverted, off-beat nerd who, despite said introversion, loves to perform (RHPS floor show? Check. High school chorus and musical theatre? Check. Karaoke? Check).
I am interested in pretty much everything. Given infinite time and no need to earn a living, I'd work towards becoming a genuine polymath. Since I lack those, I remain someone who knows a little bit about a lot of things. Nerd bonus: I lost on Jeopardy!, baby.
I admit to being pedantic, but I'm entertaining about it. I have taken a marker to incorrect signage in order to correct its grammar and/or punctuation, and am currently harboring fantasies about adding the "-ly" to the "Ann Arbor: we do life different" mural on the visitors' bureau. Harrumph. Despite this pedantry, I swear a lot. A LOT.
I'm making up for a childhood of gym-class horror by working out on a regular basis. Who knew this could actually be fun? Why did nobody tell me this while they were forcing me to (poorly) play floor hockey and volleyball? I'm not evangelical about it, though: I work out, but I don't insist that you (whoever you may be) do.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker (which helps explain the "no car" thing, as well as the "obscenity-spewing" thing) and a city person at heart.
I am poly-friendly, though not looking to date a couple.
