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

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.
