I'm very friendly, and quite talkative. If someone else was describing me, they would probably say that I've never really met a stranger. I'll talk to basically anyone.
I'm goofy, and love to laugh.
I love to karaoke, and I'm definitely the girl you laugh at for dancing in her car. What fun is life if you spend it always being super serious?
I love to travel, and will jump on the opportunity to see new places any day. I went to Spain in 2009, and that was by far my favorite vacation. In 2010 I flew to California to take a road trip across the country with someone I'd never met before. We hit 9 states in 5 days, saw a lot of really awesome stuff, including Vegas (popped my gambling cherry), The Grand Canyon, Sandia Heights, Roswell, NM, etc... I'm trying to broaden my horizons and take one trip a year. 2014 was San Diego. We'll see where 2015 lands me.
I'm definitely a bit of a nerd. I love playing board games and nerdy card games and I've done a few conventions such as Dragoncon and Days of the Dead. It's been a while, but I'm up for checking out some smaller cons again. The bigger stuff has gotten tiresome as I get older.
I love to be outdoors! I love flat water kayaking. There are few places that do a better job of curing whatever ails me than being on the water. I'd rather kayak than just about anything on a pretty day. Always looking for a partner in crime for this.
I try to get in some board games or card games when I can. We've grown a pretty expansive collection over the last few years. It's getting a little out of hand, but it's pretty awesome. Wanna play Cards Against Humanity or Arkham Horror or something in between? I'm your girl.
I don't have any kids, but it's important to know that my roommate has two kids that live with us, and they are a very important part of my life. I love them, and I love being around them and keep them part time when she has to work. If you just plain don't like kids, we probably aren't a good match.
Working with dogs.
Being a big kid.
Drinking beer. (that's a skill, right?)
I love movies, good and extremely bad. The list of good movies is extensive, because I have seen many. A good B movie is just good for the soul.
TV-let's not get started. Nerdy just about anything. Doctor Who is by far my favorite. Lots of other stuff is out there that I like, everything from Agents of SHIELD to Grey's Anatomy to Orange is the New Black. My guilty pleasure is the Bachelor / Bachelorette / Bachelor Pad. It's absolute trash and I know it. But for some reason... we're all allowed a vice, right? After the last season I do feel like I may be coming to grips with reality though.
Music-eclectic taste is me. I like a little of everything, sans metal and super country. I love classical, folk, pop, oldies... My iHeart stations include (this is just a few) Great Big Sea, A Great Big World, Peter Hollens, Africa (by Toto), Howard Shore, Band of Horses, Shiny Toy Guys, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, and DaVinci's Notebook.
Food is good. I love Mexican and Sushi and a good burger. I'm an adventurous eater, so if you want to go someplace crazy nobody else will go, I'll probably try it at least once. I love cooking from scratch and I'm pretty good at it.
One thing I really can't go without having at least one dog. Currently, I have two, and I'm pretty smitten with my dogs.
How to appreciate the small things in life.
I'd like to meet interesting people who I can connect with. I enjoy a good conversation, so a good opening statement is probably recommended if you want a response.
You want to drink beer or introduce me to a cool local band.
If you like my profile! If you take the time to like it, I'm going to guess you'd like to actually talk, so say hello!
