I have been super busy over the last few years, and although I've
enjoyed the journey, it hasn't left me too much time left over....
I keep saying I need to find a new hobby, or take a class, but
sadly that has yet to happen. I am hoping that now that I am back
in Milwaukee and in a job I love, I can get back out and have some
Even though I haven't had much time to go out, I love to DO almost
anything. I love theater, movies, food.... you name it, i'll likely
be excited to try it.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for an amazing company doing something I love, and although
it has been a HUGE amount of work lately I'm starting to see the
fruits of my labor. When things settle down with my current
projects, I'll be sittin' pretty and loving it.
I’m really good at
I have many talents, but in my mind I can do anything. I try to
cook. I do not bake, but real food I can usually handle. I also
attempt to build things, and I like to do so as often as possible.
My cats would love it if I bought the material and built them a cat
condo, but they don't understand that I can't have a table saw in
our rented apartments...
I really do give great massages and I'm shamelessly good at kicking
boy's butts at video games - or at least sniping people when it
counts. I played a lot of Halo in college (don't judge me) and they
guys used to call me Sitting Duck because I was great if I could
find a place to snipe from....and if not, I generally sucked so
they'd send me out as a decoy to see where the other shooters took
me out from.
The first things people usually notice about me
People have told me either my smile or my eyes. They've recently
gone from dark brown to a nifty hazel wannabe color, and change to
more green sometimes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I haven't read a ton lately, but liked the Hunger Games
series and "Name of the Wind"
Movies: Depends on my mood, but I generally love anything if I'm
curled up with someone warm. Some of my favorites: Pride and
Prejudice, The Fall, any movies involving stealing things or
gambling, all the Saw Movies, LOTR, Cube, Seven, Spirited Away,
Howl's Moving Castle.... Dislikes: most things with John Travolta,
Rodney Dangerfield and Chris Farley. I LOVE buttered movie theater
popcorn though, so the deal is that if I agree to sit through your
crappy movie, you buy me popcorn. :)
Shows: I haven't had cable for like 2 years....it sucks a little.
When I had cable, I loved Top Chef, Chopped, Criminal Minds, How I
Met Your Mother, Dexter, Family Guy, Walking Dead...
Music: Also depends on my mood. I go from craving
dance/techno/electronic to needing a country fix (those are usually
short lived) and then switch to rap for a while. I will admit to
having a slight "ghetto streak" every now and then, and am
currently listening to Black and Yellow more times a week than what
can be considered appropriate. Also love Sexy Chick. I pretend it's
my personal theme song when I walk into bars.
Food: Anything! I love it all, and I really enjoy going out to try
new places and new kinds of food. But if you make me dinner (no
matter what is is, or how good it tastes) you'd get extra brownie
points. I would say funnel cakes are a weakness. As are most things
The six things I could never do without
There are very few things that I'd say I NEED to survive. Six
things I love, in no particular order, are: my cats, Mountain Dew,
hammocks, thunder storms, flannel sheets, and checklists.
Some other things that make my life worthwhile: black cherry
Kool-aid, red and white gummy bears, DVR, cheese fondue, blue pens,
sweatpants, PS2, margaritas and shots... Like I said, I have many
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I wonder a lot about what other people are thinking. You can never
really know what's on someone's mind, and I would love to be able
to mind read.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home. On a regular Friday night it's just me and my cats, but on
a good night maybe a friend or 2 will hang out and play games or
catch a movie. I also grew up in WI, so a night at a bar is often
on the menu, but those nights get less and less frequent as my
friends all abandon our weekly playdates to get married and have
kids... It's a strange limbo between a crazy single life and being
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am excrutiatingly shy when I meet someone new. I fake it
extremely well at work, but I rarely talk to someone if they don't
talk to me first. I'm even intimidated by little old ladies at the
grocery store until they say something first. :)
You should message me if
You are cool. Or nice. Or fun. Or if you are still breathing and
are a human....actually, you don't have to be human. :)
Also, if you wink at me or just say "you're hot" don't be offended
if I don't answer. I find it annoying when people think that's a
good conversation starter, and I will definately just delete your
message. Unless you are cute....then I will shake my head in
disapointment and THEN delete your message.
