My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've lived in MN for most of my life. The "Ethnicity" is 1/2 Norwegian and 1/2 Indian. (Dot, not feathers.) I'm a laid-back person, and I'm actually kind of a shy person. I tend to have a hard time meeting new people, mostly because I can be quite comfortable just keeping to myself. Which is bad if you're interested in meeting new people and dating. I'm very good at being social (so I've been told), and I've been told I'm very patient and a good listener, but I'm just not good at injecting myself into new groups.

I'm hoping to find someone who's down to Earth, intelligent, maybe creative in some way, has a sense of humor, doesn't like to create drama, not very materialistic, and is just a little bit geeky herself (in some way). That usually turns my head. But what do I know; I've been blindsided by women who've completely surprised me. The biggest part of the equation is chemistry and trust, and I'm not sure what makes the chemistry happen.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work at a non-profit research organization, in the health care field (research and data collection).

Otherwise, I'm trying to get out more and just meet new/more people.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I like examining how things work and finding ways around things, or how to "break" them. I think that's fun. I like examining logic, rules, structures, and some games for that reason. And I've found out that you can really piss some people off doing that.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no idea. That would be a question for other people.

"Character is what you are in the dark."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like books. I like to read, but I don't read as much as I used to. Yet I still own a lot of books. And I often have to consciously stop myself from buying interesting books that I find.

I do like food/cooking and travel shows, but don't really watch TV. I watch shows on Netflix and Hulu (and YouTube). I buy/borrow DVD sets of the shows I want to watch. But I don't have cable, and I have no real interest in getting it.
I do like several BBC shows (like The Mighty Boosh, Snuff Box, Black Books, Red Dwarf, Black Adder, Misfits, etc). Just about everything, as far as TV goes, is better on DVD. Right now, one of the things I like watching Game of Thrones; it's pretty good (and I did read 2 1/2 of the books a long time ago).

I like just about any type of movie, but it has to be "good". I know that's subjective, but I tend to feel most movies aren't much to get excited about. I like old movies, odd movies, indie movies, bad movies (that are so bad they're entertaining -- that's also pretty subjective), real horror over slasher/splatter flicks, etc, etc. I don't go to theaters much, I prefer watching movies at home (with friends or by myself).
Some movies that I really like (and maybe own): Brazil, Stakeland, Blade Runner, The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, The Princess Bride, The Iron Giant, The Thing, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead, Office Space, Labyrinth, The Call of Cthulhu, Troll Hunter, Dr. Strangelove, The Life Aquatic, Lost in Translation, Let the Right One In, Super Size Me, Boondock Saints, the Dead Poets Society, The Razor’s Edge, The Breakfast Club, The Usual Suspects, Monty Python ... Max Manus, Shaun of the Dead, Highlander, Zombieland, Defendor, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, etc. There are lots.
The Changeling, with George C. Scott, was the first "scary" movie to really impress me, I was 11 when a teacher played it in class for us, and it set a pretty high standard. I have a fondness for old movies, Hitchcock films, and stuff.

I like a wide variety of music. Alt, rock, punk, classical, swing, rockabilly, some country (mainly Cash), and stuff. And I still have a strong preference for getting music on CDs instead of via download, I'm not sure why.
Music that I do like: Tom Waits, Modest Mouse, Jethro Tull, Collective Soul, Soul Coughing, Morphine, Housebreaker, Cage the Elephant, The Goobey Band, 4 on the Floor, Tori Amos, Liz Phair, The Police, The Black Crows, The Pretenders, Tracy Bonham, Talking Heads, KMFDM, Garbage, Jack Off Jill, The Who, the Stones, Primitive Radio Gods, Dada, Foo Fighters, Pixies, The White Stripes, Rancid, U2, Moxy Fruvous, House of Freaks, Fugazi, Queen, NIN, Rob Zombie, Beck, The Reverend Horton Heat, Beastie Boys, Eurythmics, Lords of Acid, Conjure One, Suzan Vega, Crash test Dummies, RUSH, Bowie, Iggy Pop, Peter Gabriel, Kravitz, Pink, Nick Cave, Whale, AC/DC, AFP, Incubus, Offspring, The Presidents Of The United States Of America, Violent Femmes, Green Day, Adam Ant, Elvis Costello, Toadies, ... Bach, Chopin, Gershwin, Vivaldi, Guaraldi, Celtic punk, and the list goes on and on. I love music/bands that can bring in bagpipes, accordions, or other such instruments and really rock it.

I'm a Foodie. I like food. I like television shows about food (Anthony Bourdain, Bizarre Foods, Man v. Food, Good Eats, America's Test Kitchen, etc). I enjoy going out to eat. I like trying new things, I like variety, and I have a hard time choosing so I tend to order multiple things. But I also like comfort foods. I just like food -- a lot.
I like BBQ and grilling, I love veggie pizzas, cheeseburgers, Mexican food, Asian food, Indian food, … food. Ok, I love food.
But I HATE mayonnaise. I don’t like ketchup, but I absolutely hate mayonnaise. No joke, it’ll make me gag.
Curry -- I really like curry.
I also like good Scotch, whiskey, gin, vodka, wine, and beer.
I also like cooking sometimes.

I like games; board games, puzzles, crosswords, computer games, etc. By puzzles I meant those classic tavern puzzles, but sometimes I'll work on a jigsaw puzzle. I like word games and puzzles (like Bookworm™ and Dropwords), but I'm not a huge Scrabble fan. And I really get sucked into crosswords (and I usually do mine in pen).
I really like airhockey, I wish I knew where there was still a decent airhockey table some where in Minneapolis (and maybe someone can show me where one is).
I also like Frisbee golf. It’s fun. I don’t like the murky, swampy, nasty water hazards, but it’s still fun.
And I like BOCCE BALL! Could there be a better game to play while drinking? You don’t have to hit the little white ball; you just have to get close enough. That’s all! Just “close enough” enough times, more “close enough” than the other guys, and you win! I like the Half Time Rec for that, the warped ground makes it much more interesting.

I like biking. I have a couple of bikes, and I'd like a couple more. I need some bikes that are good for just street cycling. I used to have some really nice bikes, but they were all stolen. I'm still fairly pissed-off about that.
I also like rollerblading, but I really suck at it. I can't stop myself without using a light post, sign post, tree, or other large immovable object to crash into. I always wear the wrist-guards (I'm too damn scared of what could happen to not wear those), and often the knee-guards, even though I'm pretty darn good at not falling down. And while rollerblading at 2 in the morning, while drunk, may sound like a great idea ... it's really not. The parked cars are hard enough to navigate; thankfully I've never had to contend with a moving one.

My favorite sport is Roller Derby. I love Roller Derby. I can watch Roller Derby. Roller Derby is so cool.

I like thunder storms, especially the electric ones in winter. I like warm rain showers and I like snowfalls of big fluffy snowflakes. That's better than TV. But I don't like wind. Thunder storms and snowfalls without winds aren't too common, but I often like to stand out in them when they do happen.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'm still working on figuring out what these things could be.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Stuff. I think about all kinds of random stuff . Over-thinking things. I'm often lost in my thoughts.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
... who knows. I never do. Typically speaking, I'm usually out or at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I wear boxers ... I can't whistle ... ?

I'm probably willing to admit more than that, but I just haven't thought of what that might be.
