Flaming lunchbuckets, batman! Here goes!
I'm a computer scientist and engineer doing research work in virtual worlds. After years of 'career', I'm only doing work I enjoy and that engages both sides of my brain (as well as my pons and cerebellum). If you want to go for a long walk on the beach, it better be in search of a geohash point, plugging an industrial outflow, or looking for your crashed quadrotor.
I'm reasonably sane. I've got some clarity about my life and where I'm going. I can be painfully shy around people I don't know. I can be loud and center stage a lot too, and sometimes don't know which one I'll get. I can be geeky and get wrapped in a video game, or spend hours listening to a friend's woes.
I have toes. 8cD
I'm a transsexual woman. I transitioned back when every phone came with it's own cord, and computers came with their own building. I figure if I've got to have something serious and scary come into my life, I'll tell ya, at least this has been interesting.
I spend a lot of time in India - about 25% of the last 15 years.
My idea of fun - taking off to mid Death Valley to volunteer teach at a tiny school. PA'ing on a friend's low budget movie shoot. Digging through a bin of high tech junk. Fiddling with a Kinect, just because.
I find life interesting.
As far as dating activities, the objective's to meet you, the venue's secondary. Want to go see a refinery? Tuvan throat singing concert? Office supply store?
I'm pretty unathletic. So that long walk on the beach is gonna be a short walk and a long sit. Yer warned.
I'm a Kansan, and it hasn't all rubbed off. While my politics is left of Ralph Nader's, there's a part of me that still thinks a home's not complete without a car up on blocks in front of it.
You've got a brain, heart, and zero or more hands. You're using all of them. You're doing something amazing. You're planning on leaving the world a different place than you found it, and on having an immense good time in the process.
You're looking to make a partnership and a friendship, someone to go on the journey with you, and whose journey you can go along on. So you'll be a good travelling companion - willing to try the strange food or the new experience. I'll watch you take off for the Himalayas if you'll watch me be consumed into a project 18 hours a day for two months.
