I really wish OkCupid wouldn't count the missed IMs as messages that I don't reply to. Frequently I'll chat with people on this site, and then the site will decide that the last 5 IMs I recieved (and yet replied to), should go to my inbox as well. Since I don't need to reply to already sent IMs (or IMs just saying "goodbye" or the like), I don't. And apparently that has made me a "replies selectively" or somesuch. How annoying.
Hrm... Name's Ashley, or Ash, as I get called both. Ashley by the old friends or those who aren't comfortable enough to call me by my "nickname".. Ash by the online friends because 3 letters is just so much easier to type than 6. I personally don't care.
I was born and raised in Austin, Texas, and lived there for 28 years of my life. So that means I've only recently left my hometown. No I don't have an oilfield in my back yard, and only know how to ride a horse just enough to not fall off.
Overall, I guess I'm your typical geeky type girl. I love to read sci-fi/fantasy novels, play RPGs, and would rather be curled up in a chair at a coffee shop than out at a party. Down to earth and honest, I'd rather wear my jeans and a t-shirt than "dress up" and frankly, don't understand those people who spend more than 30 minutes on their hair. Actually, it takes supreme effort to get me in to a dress (other than my renfaire outfit). *chuckles* I just like to be... comfortable.
I also have a love of travel that my parents instilled in me early on. I've road tripped nearly everywhere in the United States, as well as a few vacations overseas. (And the almost manadatory trips to Mexico, being as I'm from Texas.)
Just to warn you, though. Though I am the type to avoid parties and the "clubbing" scene, doesn't mean I'm all that shy or introverted. I'll talk your ear off, if you let me. ;-)
I am imaginative, quirky, and a science geek
