My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
UPDATE: In the process of getting settled from moving to Denver. I may be a bit slow in replying to messages, but I'll say hello as soon as I can.

Trying to sum myself (or anyone) up in a little box is silly. I'm a dynamic person. Like everyone in the world, I'm nothing but a collection of contradictions. I love intellectual pursuits, but laugh at people who try to flaunt their brains. I read a lot and drink good beer. (I am not a Beer Snob-that's pejorative.) I think sarcasm is sexy. I like to find new ways to express/amuse myself. I tend to gravitate to people who do the same. I'm a minimalist. I think that most people don't take the time or initiative to try to experience new things as often as they can. You only get one go at life...unless you're a Buddhist.

Oh, and sometimes you can't help but be cliche. See above.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently a student (it seems like I've been in school forever :-) ) Instead of going all the way through and finishing up a PhD or something, I'm on the cusp of deciding that I should probably say "forget it" and start a small beet farm in the Dakotas. Why beets? Why not? I do a lot of writing, dancing, and generally being outdoors. I'm one of those (apparently odd) people who likes cold weather. Its great for snuggling and drinking coffee. One thing I'm probably not doing is watching a game on t.v. I'm not opposed to them occasionally, or even attending some sporting events can be fun every so often, but I don't really have an interest in watching them. I grew up playing all sorts of sports, (from football to pole-vaulting) so these days I would rather be trying to get a ticket to see a good show or trying not to think about how fun surreptitously spouting Anais Nin or Franz Kafka quotes in a crowded church might be. (Probably good fun.)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I love conversation. I think there are so many great things to be learned by talking with people. Having a conversation about the frivolity of consumerism that somehow ends up praising the genius that was Fraggle Rock for several hours sounds like a damn good evening to me. I'm pretty good at finding something to laugh about in any situation and also finding a way to have a good time anywhere. I happen to have the amazing ability to find quality restaurants.
Oh, and hedonism.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The first things that people usually notice about me is that I love to laugh...(because I'm very good at hiding my inner-geek.) Some may even notice some off-hand comment about some historical figure or some obscure philosopher. (Remember...inner-geek.) A few may even notice me waxing poetically about a movie from the 1980's. I have been told that people notice that I have great diction and speak very eloquently. (When sober.) And that came from the contemporary master of diction heherself- Macy Gray.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
One of my favorite things to do is to eat; so I love food in general. I have been cooking for years and have quite a few recipes in my bag. I also have a minor in film, so I am a bit of a movie geek. If I were travelling, (which by the way, is one of my favorite things to do) and my plane went down in the ocean, and I only had the movies and music in my bag, I would make sure that I had Life is Beautiful and The Shawshank Redemption with me. Those are two movies I could watch in perpetuity. I'd probably spend a lot of time trying to dry out The Brief Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao and Middlesex and I'd rejoice because for some reason, I brought The Fountainhead ( an entertaining book that due to its length and subject matter can be used for toilet paper for weeks.) If I was able to swim to a small desert island after the crash, I'd break up the monotony with my mp3 player that contains an eclectic mix ranging from Radiohead to Mahalia Jackson. I would probably construct a make-shift raft out of some of the wreckage so I could get back home and watch some Wes Anderson or some Coen Brothers' films...because somehow I left them at home. I can see myself now, paddling while dreaming about all the tasty Thai, and Middle Eastern food I could be enjoying instead of plain coconuts. Hopefully some rescue boat would be dispatched to pick me up and I'd thank the crew by re-enacting entire episodes of the IT Crowd or wowing them with my karaoke rendition of "Don't Stop Believin'." When I got back home, the first thing I would do is go get a fresh taco and an IPA because the stuff I tried to ferment out of coconuts back on the island just didn't do the trick. I'd probably even win a few free shots at the bar from skeptics who didn't believe that I survived a plane crash and a few months on a desert island until I showed them the pics that the rescuers took of the Gottfried Helnwein reprints I tried to make out of coconuts and bits of fuselage. (After typing this I suddenly want to watch Dr. Strangelove and eat tacos.)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The six things I could never do without:
1) Smiles
2) Good food
3) The great outdoors
4) A medium for creative outlet
5) Good food (yes, again)
6) Witty conversation and banter with friends (and perhaps enemies)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking about people and what motivates us to do the crazy shit we do. I have always been one of those starry-eyed altruistic people who want to help so I think there are lots of little things each of us can to for each other...and I probably spend a bit too much time thinking about how to fit a good beer, good food, a great and engaging conversation, a run, and writing a paper into my evening before I drift off to sleep... oh, and pie. Mmmm...pie.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
On a typical Friday night I could either be out having a beer with friends, writing a paper for class, or watching a great movie. I might even get bored enough to bake something. (Usually writing a paper means that for no reason whatsoever, I clean my bathroom, rescue a cat from a tree, and try to perfect my curry recipe before inspiration hits me.) Lately, I've been working on writing a bit for fun and find it really cathartic.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The most private thing I'm willing to admit is that I secretly love Star Trek. I just tend not to talk about it in public too loudly. I'm really one of those artistic souls masquerading as a student.
Oh, and I also have a secret love for gypsies. If, you are a wondering free spirit who may or may not be involved in a carnival/ tarot-reading enterprise, hit me up.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are looking to talk to and get to know a like-minded individual. Lately I've really been interested in the green/eco movement. Sustainable living and tiny urban farms are fascinating. If you have knowledge on the subject I'd like to hear from you.Growing up in the Midwest has made me very appreciative of "oddballs." I'm one, so I try to seek others out. I'm always game for making new friends and hanging out. If you are an NPR-loving, outdoorsy, foodie with hippie-ish tendencies and a wanton desire to laugh as much as possible in life while trying to make shit around you better, we will get along swimmingly. Oh, and also if you are not loony. I think everyone on an internet dating site knows about the high preponderance of creepers and weirdos out there, so just know Im not into crazies. I just say no to crazies.
