My self-summary
I am a ball of contradictions.

I am an riddle, wrapped in a mystery, wrapped in an enigma.

I have trouble not expressing every emotion I have the moment I have it. I'm a bit of a cynic.

I'm a hopeless romantic.

I will always believe in the happy ending.

I am not above making a fool of myself for love.

I have loved and lost and learned to tell the tale.

I dance, I run marathons, I do yoga, I bedazzle things.

I am lying about one of the hobbies above.

I have found Carmen Sandiego.

I have a style that could best be described as vintage. Think Joan from Mad Men

You are some combination of the things above.

You can appreciate/make a good "that's what she said joke".

You know when not to make a "that's what she said joke".

You make me laugh.

You either don't care that much about sports or accept that I don't and don't make me go to/watch games.

You are loyal and honest.

You will let me eat all the lemon sour patch kids.

You don't run away during the hard parts.

You're not looking to jump into anything just cause and you're not interested in settling, but you're ready for something real.

You're not interested in playing games.

Just an FYI: I know this is going to burn some of you out there, but I'm 100% a city person, so if you're in the burbs, I'm not going to be interested. I figure it's better to save us both time.
What I’m doing with my life
Being responsible for educating the youth of America. I suggest you all emigrate now!
I’m really good at
Faking Irish accents, dancing, singing, dropping things, misplacing something I set down just a moment ago, using other people's lines as my own, sneaking in a musical theater reference, sleeping, getting roped into crazy endevours. Life is all about the experience
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair and my slightly vintage style. I tend to stand out, so I guess I'll never make it as a secret agent.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love anything written by David Sedaris and Bill Bryson. Recently read The Passage. I thought it was going to be a stupid boy book, but it was amazing. Catch-22. Everything Jane Austen.

All time happy place movie is The Princess Bride. Also, love A League of Their Own (what woman my age doesn't?), Love Actually, Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, Royal Tennenbaums, Big Lebowski, Pulp Fiction.

TV Shows- West Wing, The Office when it was still good, Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Survivor, other tacky guilty pleasure shows I'm too embarrassed to admit (though none of them involve the New Jersey shore or a family with a last name that starts with K- I have standards).
Six things I could never do without
1. My friends and family- they are incredibly wonderful and supportive and have gotten me through things I wouldn't have survived on my own.
2. Sleep- seriously, I get cranky without it
3. Passion- yes I wear my heart on my sleeve and yes that gets me into trouble sometimes, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
4. Bacon- no explanation necessary.
5. Indoor plumbing- this gal does not go for the camping stuff, but you go and have fun and tell me about it when you get back.
6. Laughter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Oh lordy, the things I think . . . I'm gonna go ahead and leave just a little mystery.
Ok, here's one. Why does the midol bottle say that you should not take it if you have an enlarged prostate? When the real question is, why are you using midol if you have a prostate? (actually I learned the answer to that one)
On a typical Friday night I am
claiming that I am going to have a quiet night in, and then not. I am easily swayed. Or actually having a quiet night in and falling asleep by 9:30.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have tried out for Survivor. Twice.

I kind of love watching TLC sometimes because whatever I may be, I'm not those people.
You should message me if
You are utterly dazzled by my charm and wit, or you know, whatever.
Also, it has recently been brought to my attention that I tend to go for guys with a bit of a hipster bent. Not full time hipster, more like weekends and holidays hipster. Perhaps that describes you.
The two of us
