Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm as likely to pick up Thomas Paine's Common Sense as a romance
novel with a bodice ripper cover and that is who I am in a
nutshell, if I were to actually fit in a nutshell which of course I
can't because I'm not that kind of nut. I am a nomad, but not a
jet-setter. Eclectic is another good word for me. I like poetry
readings, singing karaoke, batting cages, photography, fishing,
kayaking(I'm an amateur), going to museums and plays and
blockbuster movies, both beer and wine, and reading. I read,
constantly. I write, not as consistently as I want, but my first
novel is out! I used to work in education, but now I'm a technical
writer; pays better and wears me out less so I can follow my
passions in my off hours. I want to travel abroad. I want to learn
swing dance. I listen to random types of music (not really techno,
and after a country-holic roommate, I may take that off my list
too). The one song I could listen to forever is Rhapsody in Blue.
My favorite poem is Xanadu. My favorite book is whatever I'm
working on (reading or writing) at the time. (unless I'm reading
one of my cheesy romance novels in which case I may fall back on
something that sounds more intellectual ;)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I published my first novel as an eBook, and I'm working on the
next. If you're curious, look it up. It's called Living in the
Epilogue and it's about ghosts.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
writing, which is not to say writing profiles, and certainly not
writing poetry, but I am excellent at writing fiction. I also excel
at reading and procrastinating and goofing around, am passably fair
at dancing and singing, and am an acknowledged champion at
generally being an odd duck.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Better authors than books as there are so many- Tad
Williams, Todd Boss, Robin Hobb, Stuart Dybek, Jim Butcher, Carrie
Vaughn, C.J Cherryh, C.S. Friedman, Michael Chabon, Jonathon
Lethem, etc. TV: I was a raised on Star Trek, I loved Fire Fly and
Farscape, and I'm addicted to NCIS, Psych, Criminal Minds, and
Bones- but I tend to watch many episodes in a row and then drop
away from tv for awhile. Music I like, just in general. I am
particularly fond of folk root type rock and alt rock. Food: Greek,
food, Thai food, Sushi, pizza, burgers, steak, mmm steak...it's
close to dinner time. Clearly I'm not a vegetarian- animals are
designed to eat each other so I have a hard time with the concept
that this is evil. My cat is not evil...okay my cat IS evil but not
because she eats meat. All that said, I will go out of my way to
get the free range chicken eggs :P
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
blah blah blah- friends family air food cell books.
I wouldn't be me without:
My dog, my willingness to travel, my penchant for long and random
conversations, giddy school girl excitement over geeky things,
silliness, my over active imagination.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Possible alien cultures, politics and ethics, actual human
cultures: evolution interaction etc, writing (how I should spend
less time thinking about writing and more time doing it), the
meaning of things, how to least annoy and best serve my friends,
what to do with myself, how annoying the pervasiveness of vampire
novels is even if I like a lot of them.
Moving somewhere new and preferably warm.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Not having as much fun as I should. If you're cute, smart, and fun
you should rescue me ;)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have very bizarre dreams and have been known to write them down.
The one with the elephant building still freaks me out.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Drop me a note If:
*you are a little bit intellectual, mixed with a fair amount geek
and a lot of just pure silly
*you are capable of appreciating a spectrum that spans blockbuster
excitement to intellectual and mind-bending.
