Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Let's do this bullet style, 'cause let's face it - I'm not
interested in writing an autobiography, and you aren't interested
in reading it.
- dedicated runner
- reformed engineer
- enjoys knitting. It's gotten a little out of hand.
- terrible cook. I mean really, really bad. I'm lucky I'm only
injured 1/5 times that I cook. That being said, I can bake. I'm
also pretty good with eggs.
- used to rock climb a bit, but have gotten out of the habit.
- I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl.
- very self-sufficient
And for the record: "it's likes dogs and has cat". Singular. I'm a
firm believer in the ratio of 2:1 cats:person. Less is okay, more
is asking for trouble.
I am quiet, geeky, and athletic.
Also, no. I am not interested in a three-some with you and your
girlfriend. Just don't.

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

Nails, Dexter, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, South Park, Firefly,
And books - oh man, too many to list. I spent two summers working
in book stores as a teenager. I typically read a little bit of
everything. I don't usually stick to one genre though - I bounce
between fiction, biographies and S&F I suppose. I spend way too
much time on Pubmed too. I am quite fond of Stephen King and HP
Movies - eh. I dislike romantic comedies, and I'm not a huge fan of
comedies in general. I tend to cringe when people are humiliated on
screen - that's just not enjoyable for me. I do love action and
adventure films. If it's got violence and lots of explosions, I'm

I'm generally in favor of meeting up for coffee or something early.
I see no reason to hold a prolonged internet discussion over a
course of weeks.
