SWF seeks well read, lovable geek
My name is Amanda.
I am Italian and I love it--cooking good Italian food is really near and dear to my heart and my friends' stomachs love me for it!
I LOVE the outdoors: camping, fishing, hiking, kayaking, bonfires--count me in!
I enjoy the coffee shop atmosphere and can be seen frequenting them-- as well as indie book stores and libraries.
I love being on a stage. I am an actress, vocalist, and poet. I'm a classically trained mezzo soprano. I used to play the trumpet and I am currently trying to pick up the ukulele.
I enjoy long intellectual conversations.
I WILL use the Oxford comma. Viva la Oxford comma!!!!
I find quick wit, enjoyment of reading, and men that have that big and tall lumberjack look to be extremely attractive.
I am an avid drinker of coffee, chai, and wine.
I am fairly bookish in nature (code for I'm a huge nerd when it comes to things concerning books)
I am probably one of the biggest hopeless romantics you will ever meet-- I blame the English Romantic writers and the Victorians!
I love tattoos. I currently have three, two which are fairly book nerdish.
Education is very important to me. At one point I was on track to become a 7-12 English teacher. I love working with children/young adults. There is something about being able to enrich the minds of tomorrow that is extremely fulfilling.
This has quickly turned into a list....
There is also a good chance that I might just drop everything right now and start on my plans to become supreme ruler of the universe.
Or... it could be that I'm always carrying around several large books with me, not for academic purposes, but more for leisurely reading.
Anything written by William Shakespeare (I'm totally a fangirl for him), Candide, My Name is Will: A Novel of Sex, Drugs, and Shakespeare, Harry Potter Series ---> LOVE, Wicked, Son of a Witch, Anything written by Cornelia Funke, Nobody's Child, To Kill a Mocking Bird, The Incarnations of Immortality series, The Septimus Heap series, Neverwhere, American Gods, Stardust, Good Omens, Sandman graphic novels, The Book of Lost Things, The Shack, The Gates, When Engulfed in Flames, Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dracula, Great Expectations, The Fifth Child, The Night Circus, The Unwritten series, Anything H.P. Lovecraft, all folklore/mythology/urban legends/epics....
If you can't tell, I'm a huge book nerd. I can talk about books for days and days. You should see my collection.

The Genetic Opera, The Labyrinth, Rent, Mamma Mia!, Death Becomes Her, Bleach: Memories of Nobody, Bleach: Diamond Dust Rebellion, Moon Child, Goodfellas, The Godfather, Harry Potter Movies excluding #6, Sweet November, P.S.

Most Greek food
Any thing I can eat with Ranch dressing
2. Music: it's in my soul.
3. Italian Food
4. Hugs and cuddling
6. My voice
and I'm adding a seventh: peppermint mocha/vanilla spice lattes
Poetry, where I have been and where I am going, absurdities, various romantic notions, trying to figure out when exactly it was when meeting people became so hard, whether the person I am meant to be with has resorted to trying his hand at online dating too ...the likelihood of the zombie Apocalypse
Oh, and unlike many other ladies-- I absolutely dislike being called "babe". I think it is completely unoriginal and I don't like being referred to as a child (babe = baby, which in turn denotes that I am a child). It's a huge strange pet peeve of mine. If you can't come up with something original please just call me by my name.
