Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Welcome welcome to my little section of OKC. Make yourself
comfortable. Please mind the breakables.
I'm kind of a nerd. I'm an intersectional feminist, respectful
atheist and part-time dad to an awesome spawnling.
I'm a pretty positive person who has an optimistic outlook on life.
I try to stay positive no matter what each day brings.
(Side note, I'm half-convinced my reckless and boundless optimism
is a result of my parents forcing me to watch Pollyanna over and
over Clockwork Orange style and then blocking out my memories.
That's a plausible explanation right?)
I'm very involved in the local nerd community. Partly as a result
of running my own events and partly because I am on the staff of
Ottawa Geek Market. It's a thrill to be able to work with some
Oh and I really enjoy cooking. Particularly when I have someone who
can appreciate my creations!
And I've been known to drop British slang/language and curses into
my language at frequent intervals.
So what qualities do I seek?
Well, first off while there are qualities that interest or attract
me I'm aware of the value of keeping an open mind.
That said, a lady who is curious and engaged with the world around
us. Someone with whom I can have an interesting conversation that
wends its way from feminism to the zombie apocalypse with stops for
commentary about the economics of Star Trek would be awesome.
Beyond that, I’d like someone who is a bit nerdy, and maybe a bit
creative in some way. Someone who will introduce me to new and
interesting things. And finally, someone who is passionate about
life and is excited about the possibilities each new day brings
I also want someone who is *ready* for the potential of a serious
relationship. I know that doesn't happen over night. And that's ok.
But it's frustrating to be working towards something and investing
and the person just decides not that they're not interested. But
that they're not ready. And I'm left feeling awful because I have
started to feel something for this person, they feel something for
me. But it's still over.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
- Planning world domination and trying to figure out how attach
laser cannons to the heads of sharks.
- Very slowly learning to play the guitar.
- Working a contract with an awesome event!
- I also run singles/social events and have a FB group for
nerdy/geeky people in the Capital region to meet and connect:
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being a dork.
Making folks laugh.
Putting people at ease.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'd have to take a survey maybe? But I suspect it'd be my laugh or
smile. Or maybe the epic beard? *strokes beard* this merits some
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Bear in mind this list is NOT complete. I could write volumes on my
favourite media and foods.
Worth noting, Aaron Sorkin and Joss Whedon are two of my favourite
creators ever. If they've worked on it, odds are I love it!
Robert J Sawyer,
The Shawshank Redemption,
12 Angry men,
The classic Star Wars.
Dr. Horrible's Sing-along-blog,
Repo The Genetic Opera.
Also, all the Marvel movies. Because, awesome.
The West Wing,
Doctor Who, (mostly the newer stuff)
Star Trek, (all)
Buffy and Angel.
Food: Well I'm pretty easy going. Though I do dislike most seafood;
except Sushi, i love Sushi, can't get enough of it!
I also enjoy video games. Feel free to ask what some of my
favourite games might be.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Putting aside the obvious of food and shelter, family and friends
*As much as it seemed like an aside; friends and family are, by the
way, darn DARN important!
My Bus Pass
Bonus #7; This is one of those that both is and is not obvious:
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I might re-jig my apartment again to optimize the space even
The next recipe I want to experiment with.
My next read.
And lots of other things. I tend to think a lot about a lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It depends. Sometimes a quiet evening of Netflix and videogaming.
Sometimes out with friends. It all depends on what's going on.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Part 1: I'm rather mortified to admit that for a very long time I
had "alot" instead of "a lot" somewhere on my profile.
*hangs head in shame.*
Aaron Sorkin is my happy place.
