My self-summary
I'm a single queerdo that lives in Oakland with my two dogs, and box turtle (oh la la! so gay!). I flip flop between human and veterinary emergency medicine. I am female bodied and I'm proud to be the "dying butch breed" but some female pronouns make me feel weird. For example, a recent date referred to me as "Brewster's mom." I'm his dad, damn it. My dogs are my kids. For serious. Recent quote from an ex regarding my dogs and I: "My dogs are fucking magic. Anyone who does not love them, vanishes." We are a group package (I said "package"). I love vintage motorcycles (I have two), beer (go Anchor Steam), photography, cemeteries, dogs, all animals in general, classic rock, vintage vinyl, rolled up Levi's, white tee shirts, Pendletons, plaid (I know, I know), and spending time with my friends and family (I seriously have the best of both). I have a wicked, if not at times inappropriate and/or morbid sense of humor and am easy going and laid back. I am known for really bad puns. I have an old school vintage look and try to look cool but I'll usually ruin it within 10 minutes of meeting you by lots of inappropriate laughter, bad jokes, a spilled drink, and/or lots of "that's what she said comments." A dirty mind is a terrible thing to waste.
What I’m doing with my life
Several months ago I hit the "reboot" button on my life and made a lot of changes. I work full time, have some part time work, and do volunteer work as much as my schedule allows. I usually have a foster dog or puppy that joins my regular pack of one human and two dogs. I am a volunteer medic for a couple of roller derby leagues and friends I've made through those leagues finally convinced me to strap on a pair of skates and get rolling. I made my way through a boot camp and made it on to a league. I spend a hell of a lot of time skating and I love it.
I’m really good at
Knowing the name of every classic rock song that comes on the radio within a second of the first guitar chord, puns, bad jokes, medical stuff, riding motorcycles, showing up, being a stellar friend and partner, listening, and making people laugh even if they are rolling their eyes when they do it.
The first things people usually notice about me
My name is "different". The fact that I probably tripped when I walked into the room (accident prone like, whoa). I get referred to as "sir" or "young man" a lot. I am often told that I am "well put together". I think this is a compliment but I haven't quite figured out what this means. I often have two small dogs wearing hoodies with me. I'm polite and have good manners. I laugh a lot. My eyebrows. Lots of bruises.. Oh, and I hear I smell pretty good.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Little Prince is my all time favorite and it speaks to me on many levels. Mary Roach. Raymond Carver. Oscar Wilde. Hella medical books ALL the time. I'm a major medical nerd.

Movies: Grease and Xanadu (I kinda have a thing for Olivia Newton John), The Outsiders, Weird Science, Pretty In Pink, The Breakfast Club, Big Fish, But I'm A Cheerleader, All Over Me, anything starring Clark Griswold, horror flicks in general. Shows: American Horror Story, The Walking Dead. I don't generally watch much TV and if I do it's Netflix, FTW. I don't even have cable.

Music: Def Leppard, Fleetwood Mac, Queen, Jeff Buckley, Journey, Van Halen, Led Zeppelin, The Eagles, The Beatles, ELO, Boston, Billy Squier..this list would be way too long. My favorite type of music is 70's and 80's rock and I know every band from that genre well. I always, always win the game of "guess the song on the radio."

Food: SPICY! Thai and Indian are my favorites. I'm a vegetarian but not one of "those" vegetarians. I'm not bothered by what other people eat.
The six things I could never do without
My sweet pups, Kenickie and Brewster (if you know where Kenickie's name came from, you rule).
My friends.
My family.
My motorcycles.
My record player.
Sex (lez be honest).

7. (I'm a rebel, Dottie) Emergency medicine. I love my job and it is part of my identity.

8. Roller derby.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Staying gold, like Pony Boy. The meaning of life. Death. Love. Gender identity. If my dogs really love me because I'm me, or because I'm a supply of endless food and heat. Roller derby. The pathophysiology of illnesses and disease. How to leave the world a better place than I found it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying not to break my face, or anything else for that matter, on a roller rink somewhere.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can be a little aloof to try to hide behind a tough guy exterior but I'm a big softy at heart (softy? softie? ugh. whatevs). But don't tell anyone. "I got a rep to protect."
You should message me if
You would like to have a light hearted, fun, sweet date and laugh your ass off. You think we share some common ground. You're into the type of "girl" who sends straight women and children running and screaming out of public restrooms. I am also totally down to make new platonic friends. Most of my friends have paired up and shacked up, and I would love to have more single friends to go out with.
