Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Whimsical is my current favorite word, and so random truth...
I have a completely bizarre collection of teaspoons. I swear
flatware somehow replicates and invites over friends, so one day I
just decided to keep all the spoons that randomly found their way
into my silverware drawer. I now have a separate slot for the out
of place spoons.
I'm terribly independent, able to take care of myself, go to movies
by myself, that sort of thing.
I have in the neighborhood of 10 very full bookshelves, and I think
it's a very sad house that doesn't have books. I like books so
much, I decided to write some. True story.
I don't plan to stay in Minnesota. I love the outdoorsy baseball
and fishing attitude combined with poetry on the sidewalks and
Shakespeare in the park, but I'm not from here and not rooted
I'm looking for a man who excites me; someone I can take turns with
for who is dragging us off to new things, but who will also be okay
with the occasional couch potato cozy. I need someone who can
appreciate my geeky side. I'd like someone who challenges my
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
I'm moving to Portland soon.
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 probably watch too much, but I love scifi shows
and mysteries. 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.
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.
