My self-summary
I brew my own beer, love cooking while drinking wine and listening to the Rat Pack, and, according to my friends, make some of the best pancakes in town.

I used to teach country line dancing, am working on learning some spanish and I have jumped out of a plane but for some reason I have a fear of hang gliding.

The great outdoors keep calling my name, but I do not answer nearly as ofter as I should, however I play on a couple softball teams, golf in a league and really want to take up kayaking.

My family is second to none and I am incredibly close to them all. Not just parents and grandparents either. I'm taking about cousins, aunts. uncles...that one person that keeps showing up to holidays, even thought you know there are not related. (they are usually friends of someone we know) We party with them all! My friends are the same way. We all have a few odd balls but isn't that what keeps the fun going?

My career kind of fell into my lap after high school and I love what I do, but I am starting to look at going back to college. More for something fun; not a need for a job. I can't decide between underwater basket weaving or molecular bio-chemistry. I'll probably land somewhere in between, such as restaurant operations or personal fitness. Who knows at the moment, but it is fun doing the research.

So enough about me...what about you? People keep asking me what "type" of girl I am looking for and I never no how to answer. I do not really have a list of "must-have" traits, more of a "it would be totally awesome if..." kind of things. You never know when the right person will surface and you can pass them up if you are following a shallow checklist. I prefer to follow my gut. If I see a profile I like, i'll send a message. Your message to me sounds genuine and sincere, I'll respond. There is no rhyme or reason, it just feels right.

If you have made it this far, kudos to you, and extra brownie points on a first date if we connect. :) (I'm still working on the value of each brownie point, so I'll get back to you on what they can be cashed in on) Shoot me a message if you are interested, or even if you are not and just want to say "Hi!"
What I’m doing with my life
Working 2 jobs. One is my normal 9-5 as a Metrologist (bonus points if you know what that means) and the other is starting up a business making and selling yard games. Two completely different ends of the spectrum. Don't let that fool you though, I still have plenty of free time. When I am not working I am usually out with my friends or family having fun.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh, driving in the snow, eating food, breathing, coloring with-in the lines, sarcasm, quoting movies, drinking beer, cooking, laying tile, singing in the car and shower.
The first things people usually notice about me
My kindness, I usually hold doors for strangers, always get the names of my servers and bartenders, and occasionally buy the cup of coffee for the person in line behind me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Alchemist, The 5 love languages, The 4 hour work week, the 4 hour body, Where's Waldo?, Dr. Seuss, Anything that is fun or helps me improve myself.

Movies: Spaceballs, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, The Italian Job, Oceans 11 (Both the old and new), Star Wars, Boondock Saints, Princes Bride, Iron Man, pretty much any kind of comedy. Not a huge fan of suspense movies.

Music: The Rat Pack, Dropkick Murphy's, Flogging Molly, Tiesto, Above and Beyond, Oceanlab, Pretty much any Reggae or punk music. There is also a ton of country on my play lists. I listen to everything except total gangster rap and speed/screamo metal.

Food: Pretty much anything. I am very open to new foods. I recently had octopus on my last trip to Costa Rica. It was awesome. If I had to pick one food for the rest of my life, it would have to be Italian. Nothing better than good, homemade pasta in a garlic cream sauce. Sushi is a very close second.
The six things I could never do without
Red Wine
Close Friends and Family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future, what is the meaning of life, why hotdogs are in packages of 10 and hotdog buns are in packs of 8, how much wood a wood chuck could actually chuck, my investments...
On a typical Friday night I am
...doing a variety of things. Sometimes just laying low with some friends and playing games, other times, my friends and I are downtown Minneapolis sharing drinks and some good times.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was very little, if I was upset I would close my eyes and run around the yard blind. That ended the day I ran full speed in to the broad side of my parents garage.
You should message me if
You like my profile, have a lot in common with me, think I'm cute, you are looking for someone to nerd out with and play games, if you have questions about making your own beer or just want to send me one.
