I think about food a fair bit -- I do research about it, cook a

appliances/equipment/weird spices in jars that I have lying
When not cooking, I'm either taking dance classes or watching
crappy but awesome comedy movies.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a researcher, and did various jobs along the way before I went
back to grad school.
I’m really good at
Reading maps, making puff pastry, not sleeping through the night if
I'm nervous about something, grocery shopping (is that a skill?)
The first things people usually notice about me

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Last favorite book: Slaughterhouse 5.
Last favorite movie: Couldn't stop laughing with blades of glory or

Favorite shows: Top Chef. The wire. Breaking Bad. The Sopranos. I

Favorite music: I've become lazy and let pandora decide.

awesome. Then I slather unhealthy amounts of butter on it.
The six things I could never do without
computer, knives, uniqlo clothes, oven, bike, contact lenses
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Academic stuff. Lately it's been all about radiation and food
How awesome South Park is.
Dreaming about taking a whole winter off and relocating to an
awesome mountain where i'd snowboard non-stop. If you're part of a
group that hikes up mountains to ride them down, get in touch! Been
wanting to get into that for the longest time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Making cocktails, either for myself because I'm staying home or for
friends. Or going out for drinks / dinner.
You should message me if
If in response to this question, you didn't write "You'll make me
I'd like to think I tell awesome jokes, but I crack under pressure.
(and it puts all the onus of getting a laugh on my side...would
probably be easier if you ate pot-brownies before our date)
