My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
i haven't updated this since i first set it up. so.. right.

american. born in the southeast, moved to the northeast for uni, and 2 years ago moved to edinburgh for work. i live in the west end, near dean village. i like it here, especially in the summer (though winters aren't so bad, edi's got nothing on boston). people here are more cynical, not so upbeat for no reason at all.. that suits me better. i really like getting into the hills; hillwalking, hiking, biking, camping.. got 8 munroes under the belt now (only 267 to go?) and my next trip i want to cycle around arryn. i haven't got a car yet -- which is why i like that the loch lomond area is so close by train. i've been told my voice is comforting and puts people at ease. (though having a voice not unlike white noise means i've got to speak up in crowded pubs..)

basically i'm on this thing because the people i know here are mostly limited to my school within the university. (maybe i should've lived with flatmates to broaden my social circle.. but living sans flatmates has its good points.) ideally i'd want someone to have little travel adventures with, who doesn't mind going to the pub and doesn't roll their eyes at the shows i watch and tolerates the music i'm into, and is female. and thinks i'm funny and/or handsome.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
i'm an academic. i moved here because i was offered a lectureship from the university of edinburgh. (i study ice sheet and glaciers and a little bit of maths. i'm into it -- i guess you could say "passionate" -- but it won't seem that way because i don't talk much about what i do w/out prompting for fear of boring people.)

i enjoy running quite a lot, and edinburgh has the perfect running weather, which is why it's so depressing that my tendons & joints seem to be failing me. but if i recover i think i'll join a running club.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
sending in my meter readings. (actually that's a complete lie.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
movies: dune, oldboy, se7en, wet hot american summer, grosse pointe blank

shows: breaking bad, justified, the wire, game of thrones, the league, arrested development, battlestar, walking dead, everything by joss whedon, the thick of it, peep show, the IT crowd, garth marenghi's darkplace (ever see it? it's fantastic)

music: though i don't look it, i looove metal. (note: i'm not expecting to find a gig partner on this site..) mostly i like doom metal (electric wizard, yob, high on fire, witch mountain), which despite the name is the subgenre which sounds the least like what people expect metal sounds like (you see a lot of thick-rimmed glasses at shows). at least the gigs are cheap and don't sell out. i've been to a few gigs at bannermans but usually i have to go to glasgow. i like other stuff too.

books: haven't been up on my reading lately. some favorites are the dune series; anything by philip roth; cloud atlas; super sad true love story. i also like nonfiction, esp the guns germs and steel-type books. i feel like i learn something.

food: crisps & chips.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
math and glaciers and real ales
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
perhaps at a pub (or the whisky soc) with friends & colleagues, or maybe out of town, or maybe tired out from the gym and watching crap on netflix
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
this is not exactly private but I don't like tea. when someone offers it to me i think of the radio version of Hitchhiker's Guide when the ship's computer tries to figure out why someone would want to drink leaves boiled in water and ends up melting down. I know, odd that i would choose to come here... but i do like the beer.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you want to. you like real ales and fun talks in pubs about nothing.
