My self-summary
I am here for FRIENDS! I have a long term partner.
"Friends on a dating site? You're seeing someone? WHY ARE YOU ON HERE?" Well, originally I got on OKCupid to man-stalk with my girl friends, because that's what women do. I also thought it might be useful for meeting potential friends when I moved to Buffalo in 2012.

Who I am in a nutshell: a history lover, a cyclist, goofy, a wannabe foodie, and into being active in the community.
What I’m doing with my life
I work at a museum. I love the crap out of it. I volunteer when I have the time (which has been rather limited of late).

Steadily I am trying to advance my career and life goals (working with communities for positive change) and live a successful life as an adult. It's been going pretty well thus far. :-)
I’m really good at
Connecting concepts, massage, knots, weaving, being ridiculous, having a good time, being calm when things go crazy, making people laugh.
The first things people usually notice about me
I imagine it's the hair- it's thick and luscious regardless of length. Black glasses are a statement on a pale face so it's kind of hard not to notice them.

If I'm walking in the street it seems to be "YOU! You can tell me about this thing! I am a confused tourist!"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books I've been a fan of recently- anything by Christopher Moore, Badass, A Song of Fire and Ice, books by Elizabeth Moon, Lord of the Rings. Although not a book I read the Economist almost every week.

Movies I'm a Fan Of- Everything is Illuminated, The Lion King, Up in the Air, Lord of the Rings, What Dreams May Come, Gran Torino, Sherlock Holmes with RDJ, Eastern Promises, District 9

Games: Computer- currently totally addicted to Path of Exile. I'm a HUGE sucker for Diablo-style games.

I am pretty wildly versed in music. Right now I'm following the trend wagon and am really into Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, because hey, the lyrics AND the music are awesome.
Things I'm usually listening to: Jason Mraz, Lupe Fiasco, Frank Sinatra, Howard Shore, Hans Zimmer, John Legend, classic rock.

Food: I really like Thai and Mediterranean lately! Taste of Thai on Hertel is my favorite restaurant in Buffalo thus far. I have a reasonably adventurous pallet and I'm open to trying new things.

TV: it varies, but I have a long standing addiction to Foodnetwork and America's Next Top Model.
The six things I could never do without
-My glasses
-A good pair of shoes
-A good book to read
-A notebook
-A pen
-A forest to walk in
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Current political/economic changes.
Questions I have, such as "Why is Buffalo called 'The Nickle City?'"
How is this made?
What am I making for dinner?
What am I doing in the next month?
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to take over the world!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I own an X-Treme Gamer Blanket, aka Deckard Cain Snuggie.

Seriously, I'm pretty open and will answer almost any question you ask.
