My self-summary
I'm happy and kind, active and epicurian. Authenticity and energy is what I'm after. See how a kitty can be cuddly and playfully bite your finger? I'm like that. Except I like to talk, am slightly bigger than a cat and not as selfish. I'd be a cat in a Miyazaki movie if you like.
What I’m doing with my life
Research in comp sci/math/logic. These days eu aprendo portugues para viajar Itaúnas, Brasil!
I’m really good at
Mixing friends, hopping while dancing and, I have to admit, math. I'm alright with a guitar or a tennis racket, but don't take my word for it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I like novels, essays and comics strips, no matter the format, as long as there is something intelligent, sensible, or sometimes crushing to read or look at. I like Gary, Cendrars, Dawkins, Despentes, Laurent Binet and xkcd. I was really moved by Freedom by Jonathan Franzen, now I enjoy Purity.

Movies: I'm pretty addicted, in the theater or at home. I love Laurence Anyways, old classics like La Dolce Vita and Scenes from a Marriage, guilty pleasures Fear And Loathing in Las Vegas, Dirty Dancing, Pulp Fiction, funny Doctor Strangelove, inconsequentialy neurotic Manhattan, poetic Millennium Actress...

TV: Louie Louie, Black Books, Coupling, all brilliantly funny.

Music: lots, live and not standing still! Playing and singing included. Last finds in A: Alabama Shakes, Andrew Bird and Alt-J.

Dance: Forró, Lindy Hop and funk (esp. Brazilian), I like dancing for its own sake. I guess you have to be a pretty modern women to accept this. Consider this: cheerleading used to be a man's sport praised as much as American soccer before the 50's, even Roosevelt excelled at it. I also really like to watch modern ballet and contemporary dance shows.

Food: sadly I can't eat real cheese, but everything else makes up for it. I have a serious sweet tooth situation and the one thing I can miss most abroad is a good warm buttery croissant to dip in flavory black coffee.
The six things I could never do without
Brains (not yours), laughter, nature, love, music, warmth.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Research ideas, friends and plans, Português and Brasil right now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out and about town, drinks/diner with friends, usually ending up dancing somewhere
