I currently work at an Animal Shelter which eats up a large part of my time and energy. Partly as a result, I live with 5 cats and a dog (are you scared yet?). I'm a homebody who likes to travel but has not had the time or money to do much recently. I have a large extended family who live nowhere nearby and no siblings. I don't spend much time outdoors but here in New Mexico is the first place I've lived where I actually like being outside (Virginia and Florida, one word: HUMIDITY). An inveterate collector, I'm currently on a vintage hi-fi audio kick.
In many ways, I'm a geek. Unfortunately that includes a fairly high level of social awkwardness. I don't socialize easily or frequently and much prefer small groups of people I know well to large groups of acquaintances.
What I’m doing with my life

The first things people usually notice about me

Shows (Lately): Time Team, Agatha Christie's Poirot, Murdoch Mysteries, Mythbusters, Eureka, Castle, Dr. Who, Sherlock.
Music: Very little that I don't like; had to change out the car stereo for one that accepts a flash drive and every room in the house has a stereo system...

The six things I could never do without
In no particular order:
well, at the moment I can't think of anything else.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, the Universe and Everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Retreating from the world and decompressing from the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am sometimes painfully shy and have no idea how to start a
You should message me if
As for who and what I'm looking for, at this point I have very few
hard and fast ideas. To hijack a phrase: "I'll know it when I see
it." You should be the same.
