Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Work in progress..
Never thought I'd have to write this: if you're not into
queer/gay/bi chicks, or think we're fun but just shouldn't get
married or have kids - do me a favor and stay away. Seriously,
seeing a message from you will definitely not make my day and I am
liable to make vicious fun of you for being a hypocrite.
I am also dating a wonderful man at the moment, so if that's a deal
breaker - please move along.
When I am sober and awake, I am accent free. When I am frustrated,
not sober, or exhausted I have a weird amalgamation of Latvian,
British and Russian accents that comes off as pan-European
weirdness. I am a nerd in so many ways, but I've never played
D&D, I do not know Klingon and have not memorized everything
from Battle-star or Star Wars. I do love Mythbusters, Pratchett,
Dr. Who, obscure trivia, and travel. I love DC passionately, from
the morning sun rising over the Washington Monument and the White
House, to the number of languages I can hear every day just walking
down the street.
I can't stand ignorance, cruelty (to people or animals... although
somehow I get more upset when people are cruel to animals), or any
kind of prejudice (though I am sure, being human, I am guilty of a
few). Other than that, come on chat with me - we'll see where is
goes. I will try almost everything, have tried many things, am
interested in most things, and dearly love to laugh.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to do the most good with what I've got while still paying
off my student loans. I'd like to think of myself as helping
families stay together, ensuring that everyone has a good defense
and has his or her constitutional rights respecter as well as
helping families negotiate through the difficult trials and
tribulations of divorce. I'm sure others will say that I am helping
to keep illegals here, ensuring that criminals don't get their just
rewards and praying on the misery if others for a buck. It's all
about perspective :) I also paint, enjoy Magic - yes, the
gathering; have recently become Interested in war machine and
hordes, though hordes is more my style; and spend way too much time
working pro bono for my own good. I never thought I'd be where I am
or enjoy it as much as I do, but hey, I had to do something with
that philosophy degree ;)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, legal research, procrastination, laughing at myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am honest and at times quite blunt.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Terry Pratchett is my go to feel-good author; I love old Russian
classics, poetry, Bulgakov above all else, Neil Gaiman's short
stories, Stephen Fry, Hitchens and Dawkins, and lots of other
authors and thinkers from every country and every epoch.
The most recent films I enjoyed include Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
and Hunger Games as well as X Men First Class. I don't really have
"favorite" movies, but I am always up for an old B-action movie
marathon accompanied with some wine.
I watch Dr. Who, and am more than a little excited about the new
season. I listen to NPR and Wait Wait is my Sunday morning
pick-me-up. I love Anthony Bourdain and various cooking competition
Musically, I listen to whatever I am in the mood for; although, I
love old classic rock and have a soft spot for Pink Floyd.
As for Food: it would be easier to pick out foods I do not like,
like cottage cheese and melted ice-cream. I love to cook but am not
a great baker. I love a challenge and enjoy trying new things.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
friends and family, as for things - everything's replaceable;
possibly food, water, shelter and my favorite high heels.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My next art projects. Contemplating a second tattoo... My future
career. Which book to pick up next. What can I try that I haven't
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching a cheesy B movie with friends and a couple of bottles of
wine, hookah and an old fashioned chatting about everything from
politics to philosophy to art to sex, or Dancing.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are not yet disenchanted with DC (the city). You are a bit of
an idealist (quite a bit). You think walking through the Zoo sounds
like a good time. You'd like to explore the city and surrounding
areas. You like to laugh. Really, if you want to.
If you're looking for a partner for life, I wish you the best of
luck; however, I am happy right now and that's not something I will
