I'm a little clumsy, which my mother repeatedly said I would grow out of. She also said my hair would become straighter. Clairvoyance is not her strong suit. Aside from that clumsy-ness, I'm also sarcastic. I've got a dry sense of humor that sometimes gets lost on people, which only amuses me more. I love smart humor, but I'm not above a little Bluecollar comedy tour.
I can not live without books. One day, I want a house big enough to have a library absolutely filled with books. No rolling ladders though, like they have in movies. I'm clumsy, remember. I ready anything and everything, and always have. I love discussing books I've read. I was an English major in college and I actually enjoy doing research and writing papers. I plan, one day, to get my doctorate in English, probably in pre-1800 literature. I don't just write formal papers, I write poetry (sometimes bad, sometimes good) and short stories as well.
Don't worry, I don't spend all my time being an academic. I love movies, sometimes so much that I talk during them at the theater. I love live theater and ballet too. The arts in general are incredibly important to me and have been something I've been involved with since I was a little girl.
My friends are probably the most important thing in my life right now. I have an amazing, different, quirky, fun, loud, crazy group of friends that I can't imagine life without. Some I've known forever, some I've met in college, and some through teaching but I love them all. My friends are an extension of my family, which is also fun, loud, and crazy. Both groups are so important to me that I don't quite know how to put it into words.
I'm glad okcupid doesn't want my perfect man, since, well, this is difficult because I'm not sure who he is. My college roommates say I'm too picky when it comes to guys and have limited my list of requirements to "Male, liberal." Really, I'm still single because I haven't found anyone I really want to date seriously. I want a guy who is funny, intelligent, charming, employed... I want someone who can be serious, but also be silly; who can go out and have fun or sit home and watch CSI.
Have you read all that? Are you still interested? Let me know...
I am compulsive, sardonic, and work-a-holic
