Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Part Nigella Lawson (except for the legal troubles), part Bettie
Page (except for the public naughty pics), part girl next door
(except that, uh, I don't think I actually live next door to
I make a mean Bourbon Sour (or an Old-Fashioned), an excellent
Braised Pork Taco and a wicked cupcake. Sometimes, I do all of
those things while wearing heels and red lipstick. I feel best when
I'm ever-so-slightly dressed up, though on the weekends, I'm happy
in jeans and chapstick. And a top, just in case that's not
Happiest when giggling hysterically, I'm looking for someone who
can keep my sense of humour on its toes. Quick wit is good, dry
humour is lovely and I will always smirk at a dirty double
entendre. (If I don't say it first.)
I like Canadian spelling, anything to do with large bodies of
water, road trips, late nights, afternoon matinees, fountain pens,
bourbon and burgers (and I know where all the best spots
Travel is really important to me; I get antsy when my passport is
just a book of blank pages. Not a resort girl; I like to go off the
I'm a curvy girl with a vintage edge at times, looking for that
funny guy who loves food, wine and travel. Bonus points for being
tall and broad and a little bit geeky.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I write stuff. And photograph stuff.
And then eat the stuff I've written about and photographed.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Photography, mixing old-fashioned cocktails, drinking those
old-fashioned cocktails, traveling, making people laugh, swimming
in random lakes, cooking and baking.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm going to go with eyes . . . or at least that's what they tell
me. Could be a euphemism.
Or, possibly, my extremely loud laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My music tastes are eclectic. My iPod has a very random collection
of almost everything except gangster rap and extreme metal. I
not-so-secretly like '80s music. I not-so-secretly like pop music
that I sing along with very poorly.
Lately, like about 80 per cent of women everywhere, I've been
listening to Adele. Heartbreak did that girl good.
But I'm also loving The Horrible Crowes, Gaslight Anthem, Lissie
and Bon Iver.
For books, I'll take lit over bestsellers, but love it when those
things come together. All-time favourites include When God Was a
Rabbit, Pride & Prejudice (but I read the Zombies version too),
A Prayer for Owen Meany and Memoirs of a Geisha.
TV wise, I've got a weakness for Joss Whedon, but love a good
sitcom. Think Community (when it was still funny) and New Girl. Of
course, drama wise, nothing beats the Wire (and I wonder if that
comment will get me on that Twitter feed). I also like terrible TV
shows that I will only talk about once we've actually had a drink
And I'm pretty much up for any movie, except horror. Because then I
have to leave all the lights on and that's not good for the
And food? Yeah, I like it. All different kinds of it. There is
nothing finer than a really good meal and a glass of wine, but that
doesn't mean I'm above a nice burger. I love burgers. It's almost
an unnatural obsession. Almost.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:
A good cocktail
A sharp chef's knife
iPod/iPhone loaded with music and earphones
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why everyone's profile has a line that starts with "I am" and is
followed by three adjectives. How come I didn't get that
Oh, and I think about my next kitchen project, my next trip and
whether my music tastes are too eclectic.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm probably more open than I should be, but you have to at least
meet me before I'm going to start sharing.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Um, anything above looks intriguing. Or you'd like a whisky sour.
Or a bourbon one.
