I am shy, friendly, geeky and smart. I love to visit distant places
but always look forward to returning home.
I am honest, loyal, and funny
What I’m doing with my life
I was recently reminded that I want more out of life. A bit of a
kick to the head really. I have plenty of great friends and some
truly wonderful best friends. But I want more. Someone to share the
little every day events with. To plan a future with. To have a
family with. So, it is time to start looking.
I’m really good at
, not cooking. You can bake brownies at 2 am, but what a
silly time to prepare dinner.
Staying entertained. I intend to get around to getting bored some
The first things people usually notice about me
That I have a sense of humor they just don't quite get.
Somehow they know something I said is probably funny, if only they
could figure out why.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I usually listen to music when I drive. My ipod holds everything
and it stays on random. I get to hear everything I've collected.
The Cure don't get skipped. Others include 10,000 Maniacs, Toad The
Wet Sprocket, They Might Be Giants, Sarah McLachlan, No Dobut,
Natalie Merchant, Natalie Imbruglia, Manic Street Preachers, Lili
Haydn, Le Tigre, Josie & The Pussycats soundtrack (I can't help
it), The Doors, Cranberries.
Mexican, chicken with mole sauce or mole on anything is a good
Italian, lasagna and chicken parmigiana.
Indian, curries over rice.
Most anything my mom makes, of course.
I mostly read fantasy and science fiction. Favorites include the
works of Guy Gavrial Kay, Isaac Asimov, Steven Brust, Stephen
Donaldson, Robert Heinlien, Steve Perry, Philip K. Dick, Mercedes
Lackey, Anne McCaffrey, Ursula Le Guin and George R.R.
Anything featuring John Cusack is a good start. The first
Highlander. Run Lola Run. Nicolas Cage films, except the bad ones.
Go. Empire Strikes Back. Wrath of Khan. The Dark Knight. Léon.
Stripes, because it was the first R rated movie I saw. The Princess
The six things I could never do without
My parents: It is nice to have people who are are always
My friends: Haven't been around as long as parents, but they picked
Stacks of books to read next: Bookstores depend on me.
My computer: It would be so much harder to stay in touch.
New Socks: Never underestimate the value of warm feet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What do I want to do next? With lots of free time I've found out
that many of the things I always thought I'd do if only I had the
time... are not actually important to me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing board games
with my friends; they keep showing up. Some
nights we don't actually get around to playing something and just
talk all night. That works too.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I tried something like this ten years ago but never managed to
finish the profile.
You should message me if
You smile like you mean it.
