Please note that I'm NOT on the dating market.
(I keep my OKC account alive because it's how I met my now-husband and it lets me visit friends' profiles.)
Best of luck with your search! :)
Memories from childhood:
Trying to fry an egg on the sidewalk.
Running an underground campaign to get the math club president elected homecoming king.
Convincing my sister that only my hula hoop, not hers, had the ability to return to its thrower.
Kicking a boy in the shins when he said girls weren't any good at soccer.
I'm not sure what the hula hoop deception reveals about my character, but I do think some of that childhood curiosity, ambition, and contrariness continues to shine through.
Outside of work, my idea of a good time involves dragging people to the pirate store, trying my hand at a pub quiz, throwing low-key parties, playing board games, and spending time with my (scoping ambiguity alert) awesome family and friends.
True to my handle, I'm also a glutton for information--especially about science, technology, economics, language, and psychology.
It's fun when people huffily reject my methods, even as they grudgingly admit that my insights were dead-on.
Podcasts: TED Talks, Radio Lab, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, The Moth, This American Life.
Movies: The Godfather, Memento, Legally Blonde, About a Boy, Spellbound, Life Is Beautiful.
Music: OK, fine, I'll tell you...but I'm dubious about selecting romantic partners on this basis. 80's generally, Smiths, Goldfinger, Postal Service, Belle & Sebastian, Rihanna, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Tom Lehrer, Jimmy Eat World, Royksopp, Tim Minchin.
Food: Everything, but especially sushi, and, um, bacon cheeseburgers. I'm a bimodal eater: healthy at home, indulgent at restaurants.
