I like intellectual and inane discussions alike. I enjoy trying new activities, foods, etc. I like hanging out and just relaxing, dressing up and going out (something cultural or more low-brow), and small parties. I also like to walk in the woods or on the beach, and it's been way too long since I went camping.
I'm not looking for a pen-pal, so if we message back and forth a few times, and you think we hit it off pretty well and would like to meet, go ahead and ask me to have coffee or a drink.
Please don't message me if you don't know how to grammar. ;P
Before I decided to go back to school, I taught high school art for two years, but determined public school wasn't a good fit for me. I hope to eventually get a PhD in Medieval Studies, find a job with a university, and do research in Europe.
Being kind-of good at lots of things
Cooking a few tasty dishes
When I was a teenager, Lord of the Rings was absolutely my favorite series of books, followed by Harry Potter and The Dark Tower. More recently, I've been hoping George R.R. Martin will finish A Song of Ice and Fire before he dies. I love good fiction, but I haven't been reading as much for pleasure as I would like in recent years. I need to find some more talented authors who actually publish things.
As far as movies, I love Wes Anderson's work, and enjoy most of the Coen Brothers' and Quentin Tarantino's films. I have a strong nostalgic attachment to Monty Python's The Holy Grail and Life of Brian, but I've seen them too many times to really watch them again. Other good geek staples that I may or may not have seen too many times include Star Wars (original trilogy) and The Princess Bride. I also like Amelie and a number of Pixar and Miyazaki films, and well-acted period dramas.
I really like a number of HBO TV series: Deadwood, Rome, Flight of the Conchords, Bored to Death, and (as you may have guessed from the the above) Game of Thrones. Other favorite shows: Arrested Development, Downton Abbey, Archer, The Venture Bros, Black Adder, Top Gear (UK), Monty Python's Flying Circus, and a number of other British shows.
On the music front, I've been listening to Big Black Delta, MGMT, and M83 a lot lately. I like a number of different bands/artists, including Arcade Fire, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The National, Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, Muse, Radiohead, The Smashing Pumpkins (Adore and earlier), and David Bowie.
Food: My favorite dishes to eat regularly are the Italian-style ones I make for myself from scratch (mmm, fattening pasta). I also really like Mexican food, Chinese, Thai, Indian, Sushi (well, rolls anyway), and, of course, more typical "American" fare such as a good, rare steak, or fried chicken. Good bread is a must.
Wow, that got kind of long.
A laptop connected to the Internet
My iPhone (apparently)
People I care about
Also, zombie movies give me nightmares. :P
