Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Let's see...all the obvious stuff, right? So let's assume I wrote
all of that here. And something witty & charming, too.
I'm a transplant from the Midwest. I grew up on a farm (a real one.
With cows.), and went to high school in a town with one stoplight.
That was more than enough incentive to go to college, grad school,
and eventually wind up in NYC. I still work in the Big Apple, but
live in B-more. OK, ok...I mostly work from home.
I am an avid scuba diver, and love an afternoon at the ballpark. I
like going to the Symphony just as much as hiking through the
woods. If I can be outside, that's usually better than being in. I
don't really have a 'type', I enjoy meeting all kinds of
I make my own beer, like to cook (but don't do it nearly enough
anymore), and am learning to fly. I love games (trivia, board,
card, whatever), and brain teasers. The way to my heart is not so
much through my stomach as much as it is through my mind. Make me
think, make me laugh....I'm all yours.
If you want to know more, just ask.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just returned from the future, where I picked up a sports
almanac. I have big plans for that one.
I work for a large bank, so that takes up some of my time. I love
getting out, exploring little neighborhoods, and finding the places
off the beaten path.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening and asking questions.
Knowing pointless things.
Being interested in everything that goes on around me.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Coffee and Beer.
Favorite book- The Things They Carried. I like reading as many
different things as possible- everything from Philosophy to
classics to the Hunger Games trilogy.
Favorite movie- I want to say Lord of the Rings or Office Space,
but....honestly, I'm not sure. I like so many.
Music- Everyone says they like everything, but I do. If I had to
pick a few favorites: Flight of the Conchords, Pearl Jam, Johnny
Cash, almost any pop music, regardless of the decade it's
The rest of the categories- yeah. I'm not picking favorites. I love
variety. It's the spice of life. I'll say my favorites are the ones
I haven't tried yet.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Stupid puns and other various wordplay
Football games (go Rams! Ugh...I mean- it's a rebuilding
Spiders. Wait- I could do without spiders. They are bastards.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time people watching, and trying to learn
everything about them that I can. The world is an interesting
place, full of interesting things.
I also wonder why so many women on here post pictures of themselves
with sunglasses on, in a group with 15 friends, or on top of a
mountain. It's like there are OKC templates for these pictures or
something. If you have any insights into that, please share.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There's a typical Friday night? I think you're doing it wrong.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Bad grammar both irritates and amuses me. Irregardless isn't a
word. Relative and relevant mean different things. So do systemic
and systematic. Nonplus doesn't mean what you think it does.
I LOVE it when people use words in an effort to make themselves
sound intelligent, but use the words incorrectly. It makes my day.
I will mock people who do. You have to be ok with that.
I have a soft spot for animated tv shows (Futurama, Family Guy,
