Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I would love to say that I’m wry and cool, but I’m too much of a
dork for that. I come from good-hearted Midwestern parents, and
hopefully some of it rubbed off, despite the fact they chose to
raise me in sin-filled Los Angeles. In high school, a friend and I
staged a walk out to protest our stupid trigonometry teacher, and
being nerds, we actually stuck around in the hallway to teach the
other dissidents how to do the math. In college, a drunken
professor kicked me out of a huge lecture for laughing at his joke
– at least I thought it was a joke. Despite the evidence to the
contrary, I'm not a trouble maker, but I like getting in trouble
every once in a while.
I tend to go for guys who are curious and clever. A good education
is nice, but many of the smartest people I know are the ones who've
kept learning outside the classroom. Witty and weird are plusses
What I’m doing with my life

I’m a librarian, and my current position has me working in
collection development. Basically, I'm a professional book shopper.
It's pretty nerdy, but just right for me. In the parts of my day
that no one pays me for, I am likely cooking or eating or thinking
about eating. I am the manservant of a lovely mutt named Trixie and
I do my best to keep my nephews stocked with good books and fart

It probably depends on where you find me. If I'm at work, people
might notice my preppy library costume. If I'm walking around
Brooklyn, they'd likely notice my dog. She's pretty awesome, and
far more desperate for attention than I am. Hopefully, people
notice my friendly demeanor. I smile a lot, so they'd probably
notice that too.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I try not to care to much about things, but the following are
several things I don't want to live without:
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
