No, I am not Daria Morgendorfer, my face is too expressive.
I'm a writer, a fighter, an adventurer, and a nerd/geek. (I use
both words interchangeably. Is this wrong? Probably. Do I care? Not
so much no.)
I also enjoy spirited discussions about movies, books, tv shows
(though I no longer have access to cable), politics, art, music,
religion...okay I'm really only not interested in Reality TV shows
at all. I have enough reality in my life. But I am an HGTV addict
and know my way around a drill.
That's about it.
I'm a dabbler. I dabble.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to finish my goddamned science fiction novel. The way the
world is reacting, you'd think I'd run off and joined a commune.
*rolls eyes* No I do not write in coffee shops. It's too loud and
people keep interrupting me. I write in bars, it is far more
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
would "stabbing people" be the wrong thing to say here? I enjoy
sword fighting a lot. I will talk about it forever. So don't ask
unless you really want to know.
I would like to say that I'm really good at writing, but as I have
not yet sold a book that would seem a bit well, pretentious, and we
can't have that. Pretentiousness is very unattractive, I've been
I can cook reasonably well, but only one dish at a time. So as long
as you don't mind the veggies coming about 15 minutes after the
main dish, sure I can cook.
I also have, as a souvenir from an ex-something or another a series
of odd dishes that sound like they shouldn't go together, but
surprisingly do. You should try my infamous mac and cheese.
Talking. Except when my brain launches ahead of my tongue, and I
end up trying to say three different words at the same time. I keep
forgetting my mouth is not actually designed to do that, and that's
not how English works. But it's hilarious so that's okay.
I can also make up lyrics to songs when I forget the words. I can
be very convincing, so remember to call me on it when I get it

How would I know this? Is this a thing people tell you? Should I be
telling other people this? Hello, (insert name here) it's nice to
meet you, I noticed your (blank) as you entered the room?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Oh, oh dear. I hope you have a lot of time on your hands because I
could talk about books, movies, shows, and food for ever. I
generally don't talk about music, mostly because I'm really bad at
names of bands and I know one day I'll say the lead singer of
Motley Crue is really the Lead Singer of Iron Maiden and then will
be summarily executed by the masses.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends, Fighting, and Feasting. Also Books. And Movies. And a
notebook--oh and also a pencil. Wait, that's seven. I guess I don't
really need to eat...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The stories I'm working on. My friends, you know what they're
doing, if they are well, if they are sick of me yet--that kind of
thing. Also how many times I've heard Destreza puns made by people
who don't fight with a sword. Movie plot holes, far too much time
on movie plot holes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Winter: Staring out the window wishing it were warm so I could go
for a walk.
Not winter: Probably out for a walk. Or am out having a drink with
friends. Or Gaming. Or going to a late showing of a kids' movie
after eating a ton of ice cream, because I am on a continual quest
to make my inner 10 year old jealous.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

is that after I have had about three drinks in me, I know the
secrets of the universe and will tell anybody them. So long as they
ask the right questions. Yes, I turn into that mysterious cryptic
dues ex machina character at the beginnning of every quest. They
had to come from somewhere.
