***As of August 2013, I am residing in the US again for the foreseeable future.***
I have had a profile on OkC intermittently since late 07. It has yielded me a bunch of good friends and one romantic relationship that ended amiably when I was getting ready to leave the country. Not a bad for a website which pretends to be run by tiny robots.
Most of the previous incarnations of my profile have been expressions of the poetic principle drilled into me in 7th grade English, "Show, don't tell." However, I am starting to suspect that my fellow OkCers value candor in this section above creativity. So, here it goes.
I have lived in many places in the US and on both coasts of Africa.
I cook reasonably well. I would like to think this is because I am patient and resourceful. However, I have some good cookbooks, which might be the real reason.
I am an ethical person. I do what I can best justify. That's very important to me.
The relatively homogeneous structure of these lines bothers me, but I'll learn to live with it.
OkCupid used to make you sum yourself up in three adjectives, for the benefit of those users too impatient to read an entire profile. For the record, I am intuitive, discerning, and analytical.
