My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am sorely tempted to simply write out some choice excerpts from Maya Angelou's "Phenomenal Woman". To save on space, I'll just wait here while you open up a new screen and give it a read.

Educated scientist, old-fashioned home cook, origami whiz, and all-around nice girl. One of my nicknames is "Walks on dirt": on the beach, up in the mountains, in the nearby open space preserves. I'm very much a city mouse who rather wants to be a country mouse. While I'll certainly stay up late to enjoy an SF Opera performance of Tosca or Moby Dick, I prefer to curl up in bed early and start tomorrow when the sun rises.

I'm definitely not looking for a long-term relationship. Every now and then, my life gets incredibly busy and I become completely caught up in personal endeavors. I'm looking for a man with whom to share company and pleasure without getting locked in to commitment.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Enjoying my job as an analytical chemist every day. Performing as often as possible: symphonic viola or fiddle with my folk band, doing comedy, juggling, leering at innocent male bystanders in a theatrical version of Dickensian London. I'm always on the lookout for improving myself and learning new things, both in official academic venues and from books.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding humor in odd situations.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm independent and adventurous.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Dune (Chances are, if Dune is one of your favorites as well, I will give you at least a drive-by messaging to shout out "Dune"!) Just finished reading Persuasion by Jane Austen, and Blues Legacy and Black Feminism by Angela Davis. Right next to me is a compilation of essays by Stephen Jay Gould.

Movies: Give me something out of the norm for Hollywood these days. I will go see a movie just because it has interesting cinematography or editing. (Case in point: "Children of Men".)

Music: Folk, Bluegrass, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Metal, Country...I like music. I've been fiendish obsessed with a Quebecois folk group ever since I saw them perform in Berkeley. At the same time, I've been delving into 17th century English tavern music as part of a personal project. I'd love to learn more about the music that really moves you.

Television: Pass! (I don't have a TV.)

Food: I'm all about local, organic, healthy food. I haven't found a cuisine that I didn't like. Favorites include Ethiopian, Thai, and Indian.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My wonderful family
A hot, relaxing pot of tea
Sunshine, especially the way that it plays on water
Adventures, big and small, wherever I decide to find them
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Getting ready for weekend of performing, spending a quiet evening at home cooking and reading, or kicking up my heels with a little Regency dancing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I bust out disco moves in my kitchen.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're interested in dating to enjoy the other person's company. You appreciate wit and irony, and have good sense of humor. You are well-rounded and feminist-friendly. You'd like to share conversation over a cup of tea and a nosh. You've always wanted to learn to bake but have been afraid to ask.
