Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
hey, i'm emily. i like crosswords, cloudscapes, root vegetables,
sharp knives, alpacas (and llamas), knob creek, playing in the mud,
being barefoot, spooning, cat whispering...
i'm (not so) recently single, taking some time to explore myself
and the people around me. i want to follow the butterflies..
i'm interested in the connections we make with people. on whatever
level, with whomever it is in our lives. i like making eye contact
with people and i will smile at anyone, which gets me in to some
trouble sometimes (but it's overall worth it) i'm great at flirting
with people, but terrible at flirting with women. i'm always on the
search for co-conspirators. let's run amok, at least in spirit.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
slinging espresso in an independently-owned coffee shop, extolling
the virtues of whole milk, napping like a fiend, climbing trees,
bending wire and throwing pots, trying to get serious about selling
my art, constructing varying degrees of cat furniture, hiking,
biking, kayaking, snowboarding, skydiving, zip-lining, generally
brooding and playing in equal measure
also, acroyoga! and thai massage! and table tennis. my game is
getting to a point where i feel a need to distinguish it from "ping
pong", which is maybe obnoxious?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
mental math, microfoam, waking up just in the nick of time, cat
massages (and people massages)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
freckles, smile, and i get lots of compliments on my rad gauges,
and now my buzz cut
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
books: all of tolkien, always; tom robbins, sometimes. recently
enjoyed nonfiction- secrets in the fields: the science and
mysticism of crop circles, promised the moon: the untold story of
the first women in the space race. those ladies were effing
movies: most of wes anderson's movies (especially rushmore and
fantastic mr. fox), milo and otis, fried green tomatoes (also love
the book), contact (and the book)
shows: cosmos, mushishi, ds9, arrested development, jeopardy!,
music: bluegrass, indie, cello-heavy (or double bass), other stuff
food: fresh market veggies! greens with bacon, garlicky mushrooms,
green beans, copious amounts of freshly ground black pepper over
everything. also goldfish crackers, ipa's, and ginger beer
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my sandals; a cat, most any cat will do; full-fat dairy; dreams, i
live for my flying dreams; garlic; cuddle naps!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
fractals, the nature of god and the universe, the secret lives of
inanimate objects, climbing routes, my next art project, trying to
remember all the details of my epic dreamscapes
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
contra dancing! i may make an exception for a compelling date..
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
as much as i love my buzz cut (very very much), i still get
startled by the way it looks in pictures. also, i sleep with a
beatrix potter pillow case
