My self-summary
I ain't no Hollaback girl here. I have no idea what that means. Message me if you know…Let's see, bored without being boring; intellectual but not so good at taking tests; active sports player, not watcher; adventurous with a horrible sense of direction.

I'm using OkCupid to look for male and female friends because it's difficult to meet people when you're in your 40's and you work from home. I'm new to the area, live with my boyfriend (who travels a lot), and I'm looking for men and women to have some fun with!
What I’m doing with my life
Living it to the fullest? Nah.
Working for the weekend.
Drinking a stout, porter, or black ale. Or a smooth French red wine. At a bar.
Avoiding working for the corporate man. (Note: This may mean returning to work for the academic man. grrr..)
I’m really good at
Giving presentations
Visualizing quantitative information
Writing while listening to music. I wrote my dissertation while listening to the 70's station. Staying Alive, indeed!
Forgetting people's names. (A very unfortunate trait to have when one is a teacher. oops.)
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes. My sunny acerbic wit.
No, not really. Probably my shoes. I like high-quality, stylish shoes.

The intersection between art, design, and architecture. I also appreciate well-edited movies.

How to subvert the system.

How to have a truly excellent mid-life crisis.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching a movie on DVD.

Enjoying a beer and wings with friends at a local bar.

Yelling at the neighborhood kids to get off my lawn.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Now it wouldn't be private if I admitted it here, would it?
ha ha ha.

I was once arrested in Tijuana. Yup.

  • Everybody
  • Ages 28–60

You are also bored but not boring.

You think we would get along well as friends.

You want to see a band or have recommendations as to where to see bands in the New Haven area.
