My self-summary
10 fingers! 10 toes! Eats gluten! Regularly mops the kitchen!

I've had a wacky schedule since I moved here, and hence a weird go of it with dating. Things have calmed down a bit, and thought I'd give this a go again to see if I can find a nice guy out there. So there's that. Here's the rest of it.
What I’m doing with my life
I used to be a pie maker and a cook in Michigan, then I moved out here to go to culinary school and "take myself seriously." I'm finishing up culinary school and started a new job recently, and have now found myself with the most reasonable schedule I've ever had.

It's almost like I can be a normal person now.

It's almost like I can sleep normal hours.

It's almost like I can shower every day.

Holy Cabooses.

Otherwise, besides feeling hella regular, I'm just cooking or writing all the time. That's really whats happening.
I’m really good at
Making pie, shaking my fist at the sky, drinking whiskey, eye-contact, ostentatious faces, small talk for five minutes.

I used to play piano. I used to be a poet. I used to have long hair, then I had short hair, and now it's kind of in the middle. I've always been bad at grooming it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have big eyes that bob around a lot, so usually that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Since my life is cooking, I read a lot of cookbooks and food thing'ems. Here they are:
-The Third Plate
-Cooking With Fire
-Blood, Bones & Butter
-lucky peach magazine
-Kitchen Confidential

And other books I've liked:
-history of the world in 10 1/2 chapters
-wind up bird chronicle & Kafka on the shore
-amusing ourselves to death
-Tess of the d'urbervilles

Music:
I go on random binges into a genre, it seems, but some perennial rump shakers:
The Pixies, Wu-Tang Clan, Fleetwood Mac, Harry Nilsson, The Fugees, The Beatles, outkast, Kurt vile, Orchestral Manuevers in the Dark, of Montreal, Kate Bush, Laurie Anderson, and the sound of my beating heart.

Movies: I rarely watch anything twice because I feel pummeled by how many good movies exist. Even bad ones are good to watch. I wish I could watch movies all the time and I CAN'T.
The Godfather 1 is an all time fav, cool hand luke was a recent fave. One of my best friends had a terabyte of Hong Kong movies and a projector so I used to go over there and watch KUNG FU! What fun!

Foods:
Ugh. Cheese. Cured meats. Fresh meats. Succulent breads.
I used to be the pie lady, so I like those, but tend to be picky. Indian food. Steamed buns.

Ice cream is the key to my heart.

Shows:
Apparently I don't watch as much tv as my cohorts, 'cause everyone be like "OMG, how have you NEVER seen THIS show DUDE." And I don't know. I don't know how I haven't seen every show.
But I've liked:
Comedy bang bang, breaking bad bad. Mad men men, Garth merenghi's dark dark place, scrubs, twin peaks, naruto, pinky & the brain.

I don't watch too many cooking shows. People always ask that, so we can clear that up now. Or we can talk about it again. Either way is fine.
The six things I could never do without
1. Jokes in conjunction with friendship
2. High quality cheese
3. Bourbon
4. Pretty dresses
5. Make outs
6. The Pythagorean theorem
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-I get that space is big, but I don't think I even know how big BIG is anymore.

-Rhyming words.

-oh he's cute. I wonder if he laughs at 9/11 jokes. Wait, do I laugh at 9/11 jokes?

-9/11 jokes and their complications.

-why can't they make compostable cigarette butts

-would starting a cult make me happy

That's about it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Pretending it's 2045.

Friday night.

The coast is clear.

I'm wearing my leather.

Just hopped off of a bike.

It's made out of thoughts.

Interstellar, cosmic thoughts, hyping up an engine that'll fly faster than your sister's panties when Brad Pitt walks in the room.

Except it's 2045, and no one remembers who Brad Pitt is.

Because we're all busy eating each other's flesh because the meat industry has long collapsed and we've forgotten how to farm.

Buy Local.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was homeschooled.

I was also on a puppet team for 6 years.
You should message me if
-you don't mind, and maybe even enjoy, talking about food in excruciating detail. If You know what gluten is, and get excited looking into loaves of bread to see what they're working with, let's get married.

-you're funny, you're handsome, you're not scary and you like to have fun but care about safety precautions.

-you can teach me how to slaughter a chicken

-you like having a drink and making jokes, and know your way around Portland. I'm getting there!
