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.
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 told.
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 wrong.

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.
