My self-summary
I am a weird mix of introvert and extrovert. I love exuberant people and doing ridiculous, loud things with them, like nerf gun fights, raunchy comedy songs at karaoke, volunteering to work in musical theater. But somehow I’m also introspective, I’m very happy doing quiet things by myself, and I can spend hours concentrated on reading or piano practice. Confusing :)

I’m up for just about anything, and I love trying new things at least once. Stuff I especially like: art, music, nature, science, learning.
What I’m doing with my life
Just bought a piano and it's so much fun! Hadn’t played in years. Working on Bach, Handel, Schubert, Scott Joplin. Bach sounds soooo good with the organ and harpsichord functions.

I’m interested in politics but I like pragmatism better than extremes, which makes it really frustrating to get involved. But I’m going to suck it up in the near future and get back in there helping out.

I've travelled a lot (lived overseas when I was little, 6 months backpacking in south-east Asia), but I don't travel as much now - I love new places, but I find being a tourist gets old fast. My favorite trip is lots of time to drool over art museums and architecture, also local culture and nature.

I'm not as fit as I'd like to be but I'm truly getting better. Just taking me a while to get it together. Go New Year’s resolutions! :D I'm doing zumba and yoga now, and it would be great to do more stuff outdoors (maybe you could help?).

My job is pretty good - too much to do, unfortunately, but most of it feels useful and interesting. And the people I work with are pretty amazing.

In the summer, I volunteer with a nature group and at music festivals because I'd rather be doing something than watching, and it's really neat seeing how things work backstage – I'd rather watch a rehearsal than a show. I'll probably be doing some musical theater work this winter.
I’m really good at
I'm a pretty good singer and dancer, pretty decent at writing and drawing. Good at putting together random costumes, like my super class getup for Trailer Park Bingo or my lovingly hand-decorated terrible Christmas sweater.
The first things people usually notice about me
Singing or whistling to myself in the kitchen at work as people walk in. Practicing the Charleston to the Maple Leaf Rag all by myself at the bus stop as someone walks up. Um, hi. Stuff like that. And apparently I have a contagious laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: SF+F, especially stuff that's really hard-edged and clear-eyed about what people can do to each other, without being relentlessly bleak – like John Barnes' Occitan books, Charles Stross' Glasshouse, Cory Doctorow's For the Win. Also comedies like Terry Pratchett. Classics – slowly slogging through Middlemarch, very good but very dense going. Lots of non-fiction – psychology, history, art, science, all over the map. Biographies of neat people – reading Buzz Aldrin now. Cheap books at Value Village are very dangerous. I love NewScientist magazine.

Movies and TV: Love BBC miniseries based on classic novels – just finished The Way We Live Now. Nerd stuff like Big Bang Theory and Torchwood. British comedy like Jeeves and Wooster. Musical comedies like the South Park musical, Little Shop of Horrors, Chicago. Sharp satire, oldies, historicals, foreign stuff. Just got Netflix! House of Cards and Orange is the New Black were great, also the first three seasons of Being Human.

Music: Loads – classical, folk, old jazz, showtunes, kickass rock. Pretty well anything with some life. Trying to learn the lyrics of Mari-Mac for karaoke, wish me luck.

Food: Pretty well anything vegetarian, except tofu and fake meat (yuck). I cook a lot, try to eat in season because it's fun trying weird ways with weird vegetables. 30 spices in my spice rack. I don't have anything against non-vegetarians. Eating ex-animate stuff, muscles and tendons and all, just creeps me right out - it's like zombie food :) I don't drink but I don't have a problem with others drinking. I just hate the taste and I'm too stubborn to force myself to get used to it just because it's expected.
The six things I could never do without
plants, sunshine, fun people, music, new experiences, color
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I once tried to design a religion that could preserve modern values if modern civilization ever fell apart. How people think, history, societies, how it all fits together. Telling myself stories. Schemes. Designing architecture and costumes that will never see the light of day outside my head (until the day of personal 3D fabricators, trala!).
On a typical Friday night I am
Eating the best pizza in town from Bread & Sons and watching a good movie. Out at a dance show or concert. Board games or karaoke with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I drool when I sleep. Sometimes I fall asleep on the bus. And drool.

I don’t want to have a giant checklist of who I’m looking for. I’m coming to realize that there’s just a few big things that are really important, and the rest kind of works itself out. So here’s the mini-list: kind, ethical, smart, interested in all kinds of things and lots of enthusiasm for new things, unconventional, don’t take yourself too seriously, goofy sense of humor, reasonably sane, fairly positive. And someone who wants kids, that’s pretty well a must-have. Drat, that’s not so mini, is it? Awkward.

I have a soft spot for sciencey types, but who are well-rounded enough to also be into culture...
