My self-summary
I could be all "Oh, I want to find someone who 'gets' me and lalalala, blah, blah, blah..." But, I prefer a more "let's see if we have things in common and go from there" approach. Because the idea that opposites attract works with magnets, not people, and if you're the opposite of me we will not get along. So with that in mind... here's me.

Things I do with my free time....
... Volunteering, dancing, random meetup.com-ing, groupon-ing, and stuff. I've edited Wikipedia pages but not so much lately. It's annoying to put a ton of work into a page to then have to defend it from trolling assholes who vandalize it. I just got (June 2014) a golden retriever to foster as a service dog. I'm super excited about this!

.... Play on the internet, watch movies, and read.. a lot. Museums (MIA's Third Thursday, Walker, Russian Museum of Art). Plays... (Jungle Theater, Guthrie, Gremlin, Fringe, Sample Night Live, The Heart of the Beast). I love, love LOVE going to burlesque and drag shows (The TC has epic performers! NGR anyone?). I'm not really into sports except for roller derby (watching, I can barely rollerskate). Science-y type things (Beaker & Brush, Social Science and Café Scientifique). I do some simple gardening. I've also done the skeptic/atheist conference scene (TAM, QED, Skepticon, Regional Atheist Conferences, Skep-tech) but sitting all day listening to lectures can get boooooooooooooooring, so I haven't done them lately. But I have enjoyed CONvergence! I know where the fun is!

... and, lastly, two words... BEER FEST!

What/Who am I looking for? I'm not really sure. The idea of "one true love" only works in romance novels and Lifetime movies. I have not had a "serious" relationship for a very long time and am very independent. So, if you want someone who lives only for you... I'm not the woman for you. I have a very full life. But, while I love living and spending time on my own, it would be great to find someone who shares my interests and to try new things with.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to work as few hours as possible and enjoying life more. I love to hang out with my son (he's 26) and cuddle with my pets. I've traveled and have been to Europe a few times and random places around the US. Life is way too short to never leave Minnesota.
I'm also determined to try one of every beer. Thanks Untappd App!
I’m really good at
Wrinkling up my nose, squinting my eyes and saying 'That sounds like bullshit'......
The first things people usually notice about me
That I look like, or remind them of, someone else they know.
But really... I'm short. I smile a lot. I like to laugh. I'm nicer than my profile. I think my humor tends to come off a bit bitchy in an online format.. Sorry. And I don't think I've ever sent out a real long 'thought out' message to anyone here. It's usually some random comment about a profile. That's how I roll.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read, a lot.. I have yet to meet a zombie apocalypse book I didn't like. Lots of fiction, especially if it has a bit of an edge to it. I like it dark, what can I say? Books about science and skepticism, because I live in the 21st century and we are figuring out how stuff works. Random books about history, whether it be about the Roman Empire or about the civil rights movement. Random biographies if I find the person/story interesting. I've started on graphics too.. Why not? Life's too short to be snobbish about my reading material.

I'm getting good use out of my Netflix account.... My favorite movies are horror, whether a good old-fashioned slasher or a monster movie. (I find it interesting/sad/surprising how few men who look at my profile answer 'no' to liking horror. How can anyone -not- like jump scares and gratuitous violence) I prefer indie-type comedies over slapstick. Lots of foreign films. And lots of random stuff television shows .. I would have to say, though, that Park Chan-wook's vengeance trilogy is the best thing put to film EVER! And I think Lars von Trier gets a bad rap, his films are amazing.

Music... I'm open. I was a child of the 80's and loved the hair
bands, they will always have a special place in my heart. I'll listen to thrash metal, soul/jazz, rap, whatever. If it speaks to me, I'll listen. I also like classical music. I even like some country, well folksy country anyways. I've been enjoying the local music too..

And food.... I've been enjoying getting out and trying new restaurants. There are a lot of great places to eat in the metro area.
The six things I could never do without
The trappings of 21st century technology and civilization, skepticism, science, modern medicine (we're all here because of antibiotics, anesthesia, and vaccines), secular democracy, my electric blanket to snuggle with.... The dream that one day I'll have magical superpowers and control the universe.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How every song I hear can be made into an awesome burlesque routine... SPARKLES!!
On a typical Friday night I am
Either working, on the computer, or doing something, or not.
Also, I've made it a goal to wear pants.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Whenever I drive by lottery billboards I daydream about what I'd do with all that money. I have a tendency to leave cupboard doors open.. Why? Don't know. I hate talking on the phone with a white-hot passion. Text messaging and email have saved me from a complete life of solitude.
I find the shirtless selfies here very unattractive, and sort of creepy. Which is weird cause I'm all about skin. And laying down selfies, don't do it. Gravity is not always our friend.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 34–51
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
... I sound interesting enough to you ...
and... You're not in your 20's. You're not looking for a random hook up. If you're religious, conservative, or have rigid gender conformity standards we will not get along. If you say "I know how to treat a woman like a lady" in your profile, fuck that, I can't stand the patriarchal mindset of it. If you smoke, that's a deal breaker. I know what I want. Don't like it? Tough. It's an enormous pet peeve that guys don't bother to read this or is it that they do and just don't care.
