Sarilka is famous in Japan. Sarilka received the "Most Interesting
Woman in the World" award in 2012. It's been said that God has a

that's substantial parts of my job), am inspired by intelligent

I'm from Texas, but I moved to Chicago a couple of years after I
fell in love with it on a trip. I love it here. To quote a friend,
it's like living in a vacation.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I live anecdotally - I love doing things when I think that a good
story will come from it. I surround myself with people who inspire
In my spare time, I tell stories and I go out geocaching
; my handle there is
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really fantastic at loading dishwashers. I like doing dishes,
but I hate putting clean dishes away, probably because I'm short
and it's hard to reach cabinets. I have very little stored above
the second shelf due to this.
It's a triviality, yes. The longer answer is: I'm good at
everything I do.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Right now, my cane. I broke my leg a couple of months ago, so I'm
hobbling around. On the up (??) side, I've been told I resemble Dr
House. I hope that means that I'm smart and cynical, not a mid-50s
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I could go on quite a while about each of these categories, so
let's keep it to one each:
Books: Stranger in a Strange
is the book that changed my life. I reread it every couple
of years, and always take something new from it.
Movies: It varies; I'm not sure if I have a favorite. I'm not a fan
of comedies, but I do enjoy dark humor, and I don't enjoy torture
movies at all, and will walk out of them.
Music: My current favorite is probably The Mountain Goats
isn't really my life - it's more the background soundtrack for my
Podcasts: This American Life
, by far. I
am a fangirl for Ira Glass. Like, for real - he showed up in my
Food: Real food varies, and I can usually find something on just
about any menu - I totally have a sweet tooth though.
TV Shows: I tend to watch police procedurals (although not Law and
Order and those sorts), and scifi shows.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My explicit goal in life is to Not Be Bored. Therefore:
1. Home. Wherever home is. The definition changes.
2. Entertainment. Whether this be a book, a conversation, media,
3. Some sort of access portal to the internet.
4. My dog, Ella. She's a 10 lb papillon I rescued about five years
5. Living. Too many people live to work - I work to live.
6. A goal in mind, professional or personal.
Most months, my bike is also high on the "It would be very
inconvenient if I didn't have it" list. In the off months (eg,
January and February) my CTA card probably replaces my bike on the

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I suppose it depends, but sometimes it's winding down after a long
work week, other times it could be geocaching, and still other
times it could be taking in a show.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm somewhat faceblind
. Essentially, it means I
have a hard time recognizing faces. On the up side, it means I
notice haircuts very quickly. On the down side, it takes me a long
while to recognize someone. When going on OKC first dates, I've
been known to ask for a photo of what someone is wearing that day
so I can better recognize them.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
As my status indicates, I'm monogamously married and don't want to
change that. However, I like to surround myself by smart,
interesting people, and my husband and I would like more
couple-friends (as well as friends in general, I suppose).
So if that's you (you two?) as well, send a message. Conversation
starter if you need one: I'm interested in the books that change
peoples' lives. Tell me what book changed yours.
