Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m a fine arts major with a geek veneer. Enough to catch
references like “we do the weird stuff,” but not enough to draw
flow charts when I’m on vacation. Enough to know my car is TARDIS
blue, but not enough to think bacon is a food group. And enough to
be addicted to my smart phone, but not enough to want to see math
theorems you published in college.
Often, I just can't help making fun of things - but I try not to if
it's a customs official, a scary bouncer, or my mom when she's
already pissed off. I'm a smartass, but I do have a survival
My biggest obsessions are blues music and blues dancing. Slow,
sultry, sweaty, and sweet. Secondary is fusion, lindy hop and east
coast swing. And lately I've discovered west coast swing, which is
often turning out to be my best night of dancing each week.
Looking through all the facebook photos of me and my friends, I
realized that dancers are very cuddly bunch of people.
I can drive a left-handed stick shift on the wrong side of the
road, but can't figure out how to turn the rear wiper off.
I love my car. I really, really love my car. I would hug my car, if
I could figure out how to do it without touching the paint.
Also thanks to my car, I've become familiar with the concept of
deferred adjudication. Again, and again. And again...
A co-worker once accused me of trying to intimidate him with
I think I may finally be too old for Two Ton Tuesdays. Or at least
for dancing in Texas summers without air conditioning.
The most horrifying sentence I've read lately: "If you look closely
at the bite area, you may be able to see the spider's fang
In the immortal words of the Tick... EGADS!
Ten years later, I finally got around to watching Firefly. Not
having seen it was hurting my geek cred...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Lots of dancing. Lots of laughing with/making fun of my friends.
Enjoying my job. Working in my yard. Traveling, hiking up big
hills, spending time with my family, reading, and making subversive
plans to bring blues dancing to SA.
Also, just in case anyone is scared by all the dancing talk: I'm
looking for someone to date, not dance with. I already have tons of
friends to dance with, so I'm not gonna pressure anyone into trying
it. Unless you wanted to, of course.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Procrastination, mouthing off, sarcasm, being a force of evil,
shoveling gravel, and occasionally looking really stupid. Also
traveling light, bad puns, random social awkwardness, and boring
people with too many technical details about my car.
The first things people usually notice about me

That I can't remember if I've met them before, probably...

Favorite books: A Soldier in the Great War; the Narnia series; LOTR
trilogy; and pretty much anything by Carl Hiaasen.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This is boring, I'm going to list my top 6 levels of personal hell
instead. The ones specific to me, not the generic crap everyone
hates like airports, post offices and the DMV. Counting down in
order of importance:
6. Balboa workshops
5. Grocery stores (epicenter of all human stupidity)
4. Hipster bike shops (really, they're like nesting grounds for
3. Summer barbecues in Texas (for god's sake, people, we invented
air conditioning to avoid just this kind of suffering)
And the number one level of personal hell:
1. Baby showers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My set list for the zombie apocalypse, now that I know a blues
house party will be involved.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

So why is it that if you tell co-workers you're going to relax in a
hot bath with a book and glass of wine, they think it's all classy;
but if you say you're gonna watch Doctor Who and drink vodka in
your underwear, they think you need some kind of
I'm not domestic. A recent inventory of my flour and sugar
canisters included: a spare charger for my phone, an mp3 player, a
Christmas stocking for my cat, and a package of fossilized sweet
The egg compartment in my fridge is full of pez dispensers.
I *might* have a mild Klingon fetish.
