My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! My name is Maida, but most of my friends call me Mac. I am geeky, bi/pan/sapiosexual, poly-ish, kinky on occasion, a flaming nerd, and a bleeding heart liberal. I am here looking for friends and other possibilities.

Obligatory Equal Opportunity Clause: Mac Attack Heavy Industries does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identification or expression, age, height, weight, physical ability, or relationship or marital status, only lack of honesty, closed mindedness, persistent non-self awareness, resistance to new ideas or facts, and lack of empathy.

At first, I'm shy and a bit quiet, but get to know me better and I'm fun, with a wicked and twisted wit. I prefer one on one or small groups because I love focused, intelligent, deep conversations and intimate connections. Yes, yes, I am an introvert, big surprise.

I love knitting, reading, photography, hiking, walking, and exploring. I'm a huge fan of the outdoors and love to show people all the little hidden parts of the city that most people don't even realize exist. I was, and would like to become again, a long distance hiker, with the goal of section hiking the Pacific Crest Trail and eventually the full Triple Crown.

My turn-ons include: Tasty, tasty brain meats and people who use them frequently; attitude; tattoos; strong personalities; confidence without overwhelming arrogance; passion about your interests; clever wordplay; silly jokes and puns; easy amusement and silliness; love of books; philosophy; intelligent discussions; the ability to string multiple-syllable words into coherent sentences; walking in the rain; and people who enjoy the fact that I can be both silly and serious at the same time.

My turn-offs include: Replies to my profile that show you didn't bother to read anything, especially one liners; undeserved arrogance; people who are so busy planning what they're going to say next that they don't listen to what others are saying; and willful ignorance.

I am the mother of two incredible teenagers, mostly on their way out of my house.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am living it to the fullest. I believe in experiences, not things, and enjoying all of life that I can reach for and hold. I believe that everything is a learning experience and that I should squeeze everything from life that I can.

"I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no 'brief candle' to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment; and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations."
- George Bernard Shaw

In addition to all that, I am in school studying computer networking. Yes, I am a computer geek. No, I will not fix your computer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being verbose, useless trivia, organizing things, being sarcastic, acting silly, sticking my foot in my mouth, and keeping up with anything that people can throw at me.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have it on good authority that it's my blue eyes and my smile/wry grin, complete with dimples.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Assuming, of course, that food, shelter, and all that was handled, in no particular order:
* Wild places
* Knowledge
* My imagination
* A sense of wonder
* Intelligent people around me (there is nothing more attractive than a brilliant mind)
* Books

Well, really, I could do without them, but what enjoyment would I get out of it?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything! No, seriously. I am utterly fascinated with the world around me and the possibilities that exist. My mind often goes on weird tangents that I frequently have to explain to others.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I could be doing any one of many things:
* Hanging out at the Mercury, a local, private goth club.
* At home, reading a good book.
* Drinking coffee or tea and trawling bookstores.
* Hanging with friends and having philosophical or geeky discussions or playing board games.
* Cursing at a particularly difficult piece of knitting.
* Camping out in the woods and prepare to hike some more in the morning.

Things that I would like to experience more on Friday (and other) nights):
* Listening to live music in a club
* Dancing
* Meeting new people
* Seeing movies
* Playing games (video, RPG, board)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have spent years hanging out with geeky, odd, twisted, and kinky people. Yet, I am willing to bet that my purity test score is much higher than yours.

Yes, that may be meant as a bit of a challenge.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Any or all of the below apply:
* You enjoy making new friends.
* You've gotten this far in my profile.
* You're curious.
* You don't take yourself too seriously.
* You feel like it might be interesting.

You probably shouldn't bother if:
* You think that being a bleeding heart liberal is a bad thing.
* You don't read books, not because you don't have time (I understand that one!), but because you hate it.
* You can't be bothered to read my complete profile, tl;dr.

"This could lead to excellence
Or serious injury
Only one way to know
Go, go, go
Go ahead, wreck your life
That might be good
Who can say what's wrong or right?
Nobody can."
