My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Please excuse my penchant for list-making. I'm not a fan of the full paragraph.

-I've met both George Clooney and Leo DiCaprio. George put his arm around my shoulders. It was amazing.

-I strongly believe that fake maple syrup is an abomination.

-Music is a big part of my life. (See my faves below.) While it's by no means a deal-breaker, I've noticed that the people I've gotten along best with share a similar taste in music.

-I performed craniosurgery on a mouse once. Don't worry - it was for research.

-I really, really wish I could like red wine, but I just can't wrap my head around the whole lukewarm beverage thing. But sangria - yes please!

-5 years ago I was in the audience for a taping of The Colbert Report and caught one of the WristStrong bracelets that Stephen flung into the crowd. So the two of us kind of have a connection.

-I hate Nutella.

-I'm also the only person I know of who prefers muffin bottoms to muffin tops. Soft and fluffy!!

-My favorite drink is a Moscow Mule.

-I am head-over-heels in love with Brian Williams. It makes me very, very sad that my evening classes prevent me from watching NBC Nightly News.
*Update: I realize Brian may have a bit of an issue with truth-telling, and I am coming to terms with this. I am also trying to adjust to the idea that he is not returning to the Nightly News anchor desk. Please allow me some privacy during this difficult time.

I'm looking for someone I can be myself around. That's terribly cliche, I know, but I've encountered a number of people around whom I've felt I had to put on some sort of act, and it is truly, utterly exhausting. I'm very independent and value my time to myself; but when I've had enough of that I want somebody I can explore the local bar and restaurant scene with, share a bottle of wine and play Scrabble with, and make me laugh so hard my sides hurt. I want to spend Saturday night out together, wake up late on Sunday, and do the crossword cuddled up in bed. Followed by brunch, of course. If these sound like things you'd be into - message me!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I recently started a job as a cognitive rehabilitation specialist for adults with traumatic brain injuries. It's tough but rewarding. I'm starting to apply to PhD programs in clinical psychology, during which I plan to focus in forensic psych. The end goal is a career in criminal profiling, maybe for the FBI.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Perfusing, sectioning, and mounting mouse brains. After college, I worked for two years in a neuroscience lab at NIH. It was an alcohol addiction lab, so much of my work involved getting mice drunk. Fun fact: a drunk mouse is not much different from a sober mouse. Just a lot of stumbling around their cage. Give them enough ethanol and they'll just pass out. I quickly became the go-to transcardial perfusion person in the lab... If you don't mind a gruesome story, feel free to ask me what that means!
And on a completely different note - I'm also really good at cooking.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Sparking water/seltzer
2. Hulu/YouTube/Netflix
3. Family
4. iPhone
5. Wikipedia
6. Sushi (seriously. I love sushi.)

In random order, obviously. Family is always first.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How sad it is that we, as grown-ups, had to lose the simple joys of childhood. When I was a kid I used to spread my dad's shaving cream all over myself and pretend I was a snowman. And remember the sheer delight we would feel getting to eat candy on Halloween? Now we have to worry about calories and cavities. What happened to us?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
When not out with friends, I'm perusing this site for other ways to spend a Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I was a late bloomer - I didn't have my first kiss until I was 16. (I have made great strides since then.)

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are Michael Palin circa 1975.
Also - I'm looking for a relationship, not a FWB situation. If you are not, please move along.
