My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A few of the contradictions that make me - well, me:

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 out.)

My friends say I can go from being Lady Mary to Uncle Buck in the span of one sentence. I prefer the company of people who are classy/crass.

I laugh as easily as I cry, and my best conversations in life usually involve both.

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 serving communion at 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 myself.)

Nothing is as important to me as my family in Minnesota, but I keep finding myself taking jobs far away from them.

I like being my contradictory self, and I want more simplicity in my life.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work on the Hill, but I can't bring myself to live there. I used to be a newspaper reporter but was drawn to the other side.
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, Up All Night, Game of Thrones. I usually wait for a rainy weekend to catch up to all that.

Movies: The last 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).

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 toast.

Podcasts: a lot of NPR (This American Life, Planet Money, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me...) and Dan Savage

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I recently learned that Twinkle, Twinkle and the ABCs share the same tune.

Also, I own a $65 pair of orthotic flipflops.

If you're kind and sarcastic, don't sleep in a twin bed or mattress on the floor, you love puns and you won't judge me for drinking Ensure in the mornings and clipping coupons.
