Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A few of the contradictions that make me - well, me:
My friends say I can go from being Lady Mary to Uncle Buck in less
than a sentence. I prefer the company of people who are
I prefer books to TV, but find myself inexorably drawn to TLC
programming like "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo." (If you can't stomach
a 6-year-old snapping "dolla make me holla," then we might not work
I laugh as easily as I cry, and my best conversations usually
I need lots of time outside near trees and water and stars, but I
deplore - yes, deplore - camping.
I love very few things more than Sarah Silverman's abortion jokes,
but singing in church is one of them. (Note: you don't need to feel
this way about either one, but it's a pretty honest assessment of
I like being my contradictory self.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Everything Ian McEwan writes, but Atonement is at the top of
the list. The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. Three Junes. Anne Lamott and
Kathleen Norris. The last book I read was The Immortal Life of
Henrietta Lacks, which I recommend, though I usually spend more
time reading fiction than non.
TV: Here's what I tape - The Daily Show, Colbert, Modern Family,
Parks and Rec, Downton Abbey, The Mindy Project, Game of Thrones. I
usually wait for a rainy weekend to catch up on that.
Movies: The last *really* great movie I saw was Beasts of the
Southern Wild, but I'm a fan of most genres (bromance, historical
drama, quirky indie flicks, documentaries). I also try to keep up
with most of the Oscar picks.
Music: Left to my own devices, I admit that I have terrible (almost
purely Top 40) taste in music. And though the Avett Brothers (or
whoever we're all supposed to be listening to now) is on my iPod, I
am usually listening to Usher. I have friends with good taste in
music, though, and they have taught me to love music like Bon Iver
and The Civil Wars.
Food: I think food is delicious. I like a well-cooked steak,
spaghetti and meatballs, fancy macaroni and cheese, Kraft Mac &
Cheese and a great salad with bacon, avocados and blue cheese. I
can make many of those dishes and enjoy doing it. All that being
said, if I were on Death Row, my last meal would be peanut butter
Podcasts: a lot of NPR (This American Life, Planet Money, Wait Wait
Don't Tell Me...) and Dan Savage
