Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
If you're looking for someone who is well balanced with a nice
mixture of intelligence, humor, motivation, and wit (peppered with
a bit of sarcasm, but just a wee bit!)then you'll find me
unbearably irresitible. I have a hard time categorizing myself:
social, geeky, quirky, smart, witty, vapid. My dictionary is never
far and I love browsing through it seeing where it takes me--online
searches can't compare to a bona fide, leaf-through-the-pages
PS I'm not really vapid, I was just checking to see if you really
I am punny, light-hearted, and loyal.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am on a quest to constantly improve upon myself. Whether it is
learning things I don't already know (or more likely have
forgotten), better understanding myself and others, exercising more
and losing weight, eating better, keeping my house clean, etc, etc,
I don't think anyone should be defined by their career, but if it
gives insight I am a pharmacist. Also, I am recovering from a
failed business attempt as a coffee shop owner. What I can say on
that is I tried, I failed, and most importantly, I learned.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hmmmm, lots of stuff, but I'm not sure that they are of any great
interest. For instance, logic problems...love 'em. Oh yah, I can be
a real procrastinator sometimes, but I guess that's not a good
thing to be good at; we can discuss this later.
And here's something else: I am really good at...well, on second
thought, you'd have to get to know me to learn about that! (OK...I
meant innuendo in case your mind went toward the lewd and
I like taking things apart and *trying* to put them back together
(don't ask my mom about my saxophone...and in my defense, it did
play for a while!)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
One would notice that I smile easily and laugh a lot. I'm extremely
silly at times. And I'm told that I sport some mighty cute dimples!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I'm a lazy reader. I enjoy reading, but it takes me a long
time to finish a book. For instance, I'm looking forward to finding
out what happens to Goldie Locks...shhh, don't ruin the ending for
Movies: a varied bag. I enjoy the mindless to the soul-wrenchingly
deep. Some of my favorite movies are "Airplane", "Glory", and "Six
Degrees of Separation". Music: Lots. Classic rock mostly, with some
glitter-glam, punk, funk, and new rock thrown in. Not so much into
80s hair bands. My favorite newer-ish band is The White Stripes.
Throw in a bit of classical, bluegrass, and jazz, and that pretty
much summarizes my music. Oh, and there's a category called "Filk",
it's folk music with science or science fiction as the subject...I
don't much like it, but I'm fascinated that it exists to the extent
to have its own category.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Love, friends, family, humor, curiosity, and gin with a big olive
(OK, the olive makes seven choices, but I ask, what is gin without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
A lot! Pondering, wondering, alliteration, tabulating, scheming,
planning, the future, the past, the present: it's all there all the
time. And most importantly...(drum roll, please)...what I don't
know I should be thinking about--that's what's great about meeting
new people...they expand one's world and become provocateurs!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going to the gym, watching TV, hanging with friends, playing
Scrabble, playing trivia at the bar, having a cocktail, making
dinner for friends, having friends make me dinner, eating dinner
that I have made for friends, eating dinner that friends have made
for me. (Not all of that happens on any one Friday night; those are
just some examples of what I *might* be found doing on A Friday
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well, it pains me to share this malady. It's inherited, as my
sister and sister-in-law share this burden with me. I have what is
called chive-tooth. I have a set of teeth that will invariably,
permanently afix green pieces of food (usually herbs or lettuce)to
my front teeth. It also is known as oregano-tooth, basil-tooth, or
parsley-tooth. The social impact of this condition has been
staggering; the laughs, the pointing, the stares, oh the utter
horror, but I have endured!
There, now it's all out on the table....full disclosure.
Oh, and also, I'm a fan of the Oxford comma!
