I'm looking for the Columbia to my Eddie.
When I grow up, I want to be Anthony Bourdain.
To be continued...over email or coffee.
I completed a masters degree in 2008, and I'm not working in my field. This bothered me for a long time, but I've recently started to enjoy my government job. I've trained several people, and my superiors have started talking about me moving up. There is a distinct possibility that I'll have a career on my hands at some point, yikes! Then again, I AM over 30, so it seems almost par for the course.
I've tried the friends with benefits thing, and I've been perplexed by the polyamory thing(s). I think I'm at a point where I'm interested in dating someone I'm compatible with and who I genuinely like. It may sounds obvious, but it took me too long to realize this simple fact. If we liked each other, my ideal situation would be an exclusive, monogamous relationship. I'm ready to consider settling down, if we achieved some level of stability.
At work: my command presence
Movies: Too many to name them all. I'm a huge fan of everything Quentin Tarantino and Kevin Smith have done.
Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Life Aquatic (anything by Wes Anderson), Shaun of the Dead, Ravenous. I love horror, especially cheesy horror. I'm also a fan of raunchy comedies like Knocked Up and Superbad.
Shows: Futurama, Family Guy, American Dad, Discovery Channel documentaries. Mad Men (it's one of those shows I'm not sure I love or hate). Walking dead, 30 Rock, Always Sunny.
Music: Traditional Irish music, Grunge bands from my youth...
Special mention: Pogues, Dubliners, Nirvana, The Beatles, The Doors, Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, and Alanis Morissette (Jagged Little Pill particularly). More recent bands/singers include Rilo Kiley, and Death Cab for Cutie.
I cook a lot, so my favorite foods are difficult recipes that I'm trying out for the first time

A favorite movie quote: Once upon a time there was a crooked tree and a straight tree. And they grew next to each other. And every day the straight tree would look at the crooked tree and he would say, "You're crooked. You've always been crooked and you'll continue to be crooked. But look at me! Look at me!" said the straight tree. He said, "I'm tall and I'm straight." And then one day the lumberjacks came into the forest and looked around, and the manager in charge said, "Cut all the straight trees." And that crooked tree is still there to this day, growing strong and growing strange. -"Wristcutters: A Love Story"
