Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
(Hi! I'm on vacation in Spain for the rest of September, but feel
free to say hello anyway! I'll check here a few times while I'm
away, and will say hello back then :) )
For arty things, catty things, and tasty things:
-Less erstwhile painter
(And no I do not consider those first two contradictory :) )
Was born and raised in the South, but I moved up to Seattle couple
years ago. The city's strange and wonderful and weird, and so far
it's been pretty neat to explore.
I've been informed that I'm essentially a male version of a 1950's
housewife. I like baking, cooking, and hosting parties--both the
potluck dinner variety and the 'who's the Russian dude asleep on
the couch?' variety--and actually give a damn about how my
apartment looks. Unconfirmed sources also report that I'm trying to
learn how to knit. Also love painting (acrylics; oils are a bad
idea with cats...), and am trying to get more into the art scene in
I believe very firmly in the "Life is short, enjoy it!" philosophy
and try to fill my days with tasty food, weird experiences, and
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Professionally: Just got my bachelor's from Georgia Tech and am
starting out as an engineer. If you see a tiny Brazilian lady
around town, it might be my boss, so tell her I'm awesome, even if
you've never met me, please?
Personally: Taking care of two new kittens, Whiskey and Mocha. It's
a lot like having two adorable drunk people in the house. Drunk
people who enjoy licking my eyelids and stealing my socks. I'm also
taking art classes around the city.
Socially: Cooking comfort food for and sharing wine with friends.
Have a cluster of wonderful (and slightly crazy) folks I met right
after moving up here that I try to spend as much of my days with as
possible. They tend heavily towards one or more of the letters in
LGBT, and almost as heavily towards gamers (mostly board, some
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, and I'm not shy about it. My mom and my Nena taught me, so
I tend to ignore recipes and just go with what tastes right.
Jambalaya and red beans and rice are my specialty, though if you're
feeling in a particularly artery-clogging mood, I might fry up some
Milky Ways or Oreos. On a kick where I'm trying to learn about
Travelling. If you need recommendations for hostels in Portugal,
restaurants in Provence, help ordering vegetarian food in Barcelona
or buying a train ticket from a Russian guy in Milan, I'm
apparently your guy.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My propensity for the word "y'all." I don't get why you northerners
find that so dang amusing >:(
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Anything by Neil Gaiman, Brandon Sanderson, or John Scalzi.
Major fantasy fan.
Movies: Pixar. Pretty much all of it. Oh, and Hot Fuzz is England's
greatest contribution to society since fish and chips.
Music: On a bit of an EDM kick right now, though I like rock as
well. Most recent music on my phone is Tiesto, Paramore, and the
soundtracks for "Scott Pilgrim" and "The Book of Mormon"
Food: Anything Cajun, though red beans and rice is my absolute
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where my career will end up. Scheming how to get my family to move
up to the PNW so I can see them more often. How I can paint in my
apartment without it resulting in a purple and pink cat wandering
about. Other crafty things I can do in a small apartment.
My friends ^__^
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Beer and cookouts on friends' roofs, the occasional bar-hop, weird
kitchen experiments, and movie nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The only thing stopping me from getting a seer-sucker suit is the
lack of anything to wear it to.

You want to grab coffee. In person. Friends are great. As are
internet acquaintances. But that's not what I'm here looking for.
