My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I majored in Russian & Soviet Dramatic Literature which, you'll be shocked to learn, is not a growth field. So, I went back to school for my MBA and now I work on web stuff for a faboo non-profit.

Aside from that, I like finding delicious things to eat and drink, and hope maybe you'll share some of them with me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Career-wise: I work at a job I love for an organization I've wanted to work for since I was a kid. I don't know that it's where I'll be forever, but it's a great place to be right now.

Otherwise: Appreciating the warm weather and the opportunity to enjoy it with friends old and new, growing deck eggplants, learning fun new things (and - hopefully, anyway - learning about myself in the process), trying to find a new yoga studio.

Looking forward to a vacation after what has turned out to be a really crazy summer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Remembering random facts (you want me on your trivia team)
- Making breakfast
- Telling stories
- Planning fun events (ex: iPhone scavenger hunt!)
- Skeeball

Also, I can make fires! (In a totally useful way that frequently results in delicious food)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Physically, I think it's my eyes. People also tell me that I am very easy to talk to.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: all-time favorites include Kafka on the Shore, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, When You Reach Me, The Sisters Brothers, The Shining. I've read all of them at least twice and some considerably more. One I read out loud to my brother on a road trip and we both cried buckets at the end.

Recent reads include In the Unlikely Event, The Magnificent Ambersons, The Just City, a grow-up re-read of the entire Little House collection (note: not recommended when you're snowed in - yikes), and The Long and Faraway Gone. That one has the best bad review of any book I've ever seen. Seriously, go and look it up on Goodreads. You'll know it immediately and you will definitely laugh.

It's a new year, but I'm still looking for new book recommendations. Anyone have good recommendations for graphic novels, westerns or romance? Bonus points if they're short. I'm behind on my Goodreads goal.

(I like books.)

Movies: Juno, ET, When Harry Met Sally, Man on Wire, The Muppet Movie, My Neighbor Totoro, Lost in Translation, Hoop Dreams. I enjoyed Spy more than I should probably admit. Gymkata is the best bad movie ever.

At work, I get paid to watch documentaries so I'm pretty lucky.

Music: I've been listening more to older music recently, spurred on by my annual Memorial Day camping trip mixtape project. This year's entry was a puzzle game and included all the songs and artists mentioned in American Pie. It re-kindled my Buddy Holly love and somehow that led to a full-on Michael Jackson kick. Brandi Carlile recently replaced Carrie Brownstein as my girl crush.

Podcasts: RadioLab, This American Life, 99% Invisible, Judge John Hodgman, Serial/Undosclosed, all of the Slate podcasts, Startup, once I got through the awkward bits early on. A friend recently recommended Mortified and I am looking forward to trying that one out. I also love classic radio dramas.

Food: Is delicious! I especially enjoy pho, Indian, Thai. I've never met a leafy green I didn't like. I love to cook and am working on learning good recipes by heart. First up: roasted chicken (and chicken soup!). Next up: good, basic, hearty sandwich bread.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order...

- Wonderful friends and crazy family
- Good beer, delicious food and people to share it with (see above)
- Great reading material
- SmartWool socks
- Public media
- My adorable furballs, a little tribe consisting of one ancient and utterly charming cat, one not-so-ancient and utterly charming cat and one utterly charming (yet lazy), large-ish dog of indeterminate age. Seriously, they're the best. I'm biased, but it's still true.

My new (to me) camera is making its way onto this list, too. And I suppose I'd have to include the film to go along with that.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- Where to go on my next vacation
- What the cat is staring at
- How I can be a better partner in my next relationship
- What kind of beer I should try for my next homebrew experiment (and if it will turn out better than The Great Oatmeal Juice Disaster of 2012 - the bar is low here)
- If I could keep a chicken on my deck without my condo association noticing (probably not, but it's fun to think about :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Well, the honest answer is probably doing laundry, grocery shopping and cooking a nice meal. :) I am out and about a lot during the week and I tend to hold back Friday as an unwind/chores evening so I can get ready for the rest of the weekend.

On the Friday when I am out, I am grabbing drinks with friends, checking out a band, seeing a movie or a play, heading to a baseball game or on the way to a camping weekend.

On other nights, you might find me working in the darkroom, volunteering with a local literacy organization, checking out a class on food and/or drinks, tending to my little balcony garden or out for a run.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It's official. I'm a Slytherin.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.

- You have a great book or music recommendation
- You have been to, would like to go to or have participated in a latte art competition

- Something here piques your interest

Also, please have a profile picture, be single, and be currently located in the close-in/transit-accessible DC metro area. :)

If Ayn Rand is your personal hero, I'm sorry, but it's just not going to work out for us.
