Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love to read books
, play with computers
, walk outside
, and always see new places (If I
can go somewhere one way and come back a different way I prefer
that). I enjoy hiking
(especially cross country skiing
I am starting to learn telemark skiing
), and canoeing
. I like biking
, and learning about bureaucratic issues. My
favorite season is winter
and I love the rain
I believe strongly in gender equity
, so I am a feminist
. My gender
doesn't actually mean much to me though, like the color of my car I
didn't choose but I'm happy enough with most of the time. Sometimes
I get caught in a prejudice, so I try to learn about people as
J'aime aller randonnée

I am patient, curious, and adventurous.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a network engineer at a smallish internet company in San Mateo
working on improving online video quality. The blinky lights are
Since moving to the Bay Area, I've spent most of my free time going
caving and I've had lots of awesome underground adventures. In
October 2011, I visited some really awesome caves in Alabama and
Georgia and I'm really looking forward to when I can go back. I'm
also starting to learn about canyoneering, and Mandarin.
I just got a canoe and I plan to do more paddling in the Bay Area
and beyond. I have a canal right behind my apartment, where I
eventually plan to circumnavigate Foster City and explore upstream
in Borel Creek as far as I can go. I want to find which other urban
waterways are navigable in the Bay Area (mostly following
/ ). I also want to try some easy
whitewater and do some longish trips.
I’m really good at

to it. Right now I'm reading Rocannon's World

I love to try weird new foods
because when I
don't know whats really good more things seem better to me. A
be better than
is very important to me. I love to eat pretty much anything, such

. I like most forms of

pudding, and chocolate but not vanilla pudding. I like tea
but not tapioca pudding. I
really like those pieces of carrot cake wrapped up in plastic at
gas stations. My boss says I am the least picky eater he has ever
J'adore un milk-shake aux fraises.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I could never do without my rain jacket
, food, water, eyes, and
feet. A computer is pretty nice too but I could do without one.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Making cute little penguins
appear on my computer screen
when it starts. Trying to go to Antarctica
. In my imagination, Canada is a
romantic land of adventure and I'd like to explore it more. I
climbed Mt Shasta last summer and I'd like to climb some peaks in
the southern Sierra. Some day I would also like to hike the Tahoe
Yosemite Trail in one trip. I enjoy learning the names of places as
I travel, and generally finding out what is around the

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home. I might read or play an adventure game
, driving somewhere
for a weekend of camping and caving, or I might be baking
and washing dishes. I'm often
at work, because if I don't do the work nobody else will
. I hate the
time is money attitude, so I will work as long as I feel
Je suis à foyer.

Wars fan fiction, and having a neatly made bed is quite important
