My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm not sure how to sum up my person in a few short sentences. So as a surrogate for any real information, here is a quick synopsis of how I spend my time (adds up to more than 100% because I'm good at doing many things at once).

Hitting snooze on alarm 1%
Looking for my keys/cell phone/shoes 1%
Thinking about how to be a better person 2%
Standing in line for coffee 1%
Big fan of Cafe Ladro.
Bumbling around my neighborhood 5%
Sometimes bumbling is due to alcohol.
Reading 15%
Books, magazines, the internet, anything. I'm a voracious consumer of print and information in general.
Driving 2%
Wishing I wasn't driving 2%
Talking to friends scattered across the country 3%
I'm very close to my friends and fiercely loyal to them though most live far away.
Doing stuff with friends who do live here 15%
Talking to my parents/brother/nephew 1%
I recently started video skyping with my nephews. The older one is 7 and either places his head so close to the camera that you can't really see anything or wanders away while you are talking to him. Makes sustained conversation difficult, but it's cute.
Climbing/hiking/being outdoors 15%
Started climbing a few years ago and now I'm addicted.
Listening to music or NPR 25%
I spend most of the work day with head phones on and I usually come home and put music/NPR on. It's constant really.
Watching movies/TV 2%
Eating 5%
Cooking 2%
I'm trying to cook more, but I'm inept at it.
Working/Pretending to work 30%
Traveling 1%
This last year was India for the first time in 25 years. It was amazing, exhausting, and life altering in equal measure. Two years ago it was Turkey/Egypt. Also fantastic (especially the part where we were tear gassed).
Sleeping 25%
I like sleeping.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Doing things with science--you know trying to do something about cancer and what not. I'm a scientist. Most of my day consists of staring into microscopes or moving very small amounts of liquid from one place to another (also surreptitiously surfing the web). I don't sell it very well, but it's a fantastic job.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Climbing (both indoors and out).
Playing tennis (very badly).
Playing any kind of card game or board game.
Trash talking during said card or board game.
I can turn up the volume on my car stereo to stupid levels and sing and drum on my steering wheel and generally make an ass of myself to the random passerby who happens to look in.
Laughing at small children doing funny things.
Remembering the lyrics to songs.
Remembering stories I've heard on NPR and passing them off as part of my general knowledge base.
The first things people usually notice about me

My smile I suppose. Or my hair, which is curly.

The six things I could never do without
