Relatively new to Oregon; I've been here just over three years.
I was born and raised in Wisconsin, moved to Alaska to get my Master's Degree in English, stayed for a while until I no longer wanted to be cold ever again, went overseas to teach English for a couple years, and now I'm back in the states. For the reasonably foreseeable future.
I tend to live a fairly quiet life, punctuated by occasional bursts of exuberance.
I like to be outdoors, try new foods, and just sit and chat. I have a Master's Degree in Poetry, but I need to start writing again. I used to teach literature, but I need to start reading again. I've been away from the snow for too long and need to start snowboarding again. Fortunately, these are curable problems.
[My friend said that I should point out that I am not "gimpy," as one message asked. I just don't swivel my hips much.]
TV: "Lost," "How I Met Your Mother," "Chuck," "The Office"; I just finished plowing through the first four seasons of "Mad Men."
Movies: I have a soft spot for stupid comedies, otherwise some favorites are "The Big Lebowski" and "Tombstone."
Food: I'll try anything once (this includes cobra, ants, and calf testicles, which have all found their way into my mouth in the past), but I have an affinity for southeast Asian cuisine, as well as anything with cheese on it (grew up on a dairy farm). I like making risotto and homemade pizza.
However, I lasted a year+ without acceptable cheese, and I'd prefer not to do that again. Coffee and beer make my days somewhat more enjoyable.
Oh, and running water is nice. Did without that for a while, too, and probably don't want to go that route again.
[My friend said I shouldn't mention serial killers. Even though I'm not one, I shouldn't even put that idea in anyone's head.]
I've also had a couple disasters involving pits. (Not the arm kind, the hole in the ground kind.)
And I sometimes read magazines from back to front. I probably read your profile from bottom to top.
[Lastly, my friend said that there is nothing interesting in my profile that would make someone want to message me. I don't think that's true, but I'll let you be the judge.]
