My self-summary
I am cool and so are bow-ties. Bow-ties are cool.

I'm also quite terrible at self-summaries :)

I am a spontaneous ginger who likes to hit things with swords. I love me some learning and will jump at the chance to learn something new - after all, the world is a wide and wild place! I enjoy bothering my cat, digging in the dirt, and (occasionally) terrorizing small children with my rapier wit.

As an aside, I also belong to that strange and mysterious group known as the "Nerds/Geeks Who Also Like Sports". Tis rare to find a member of this society in public, but we get around making nerdy references to jocks and talking about our favorite sport to nerds/geeks.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a graduated undergrad from UVM. Currently internshipping it up at a local museum and prolonging my collegiate adolescence as much as possible. I was an anthropology major and now want to travel the world and go to grad school for archaeology.

What time period do you study, the intrepid reader might ask. Well, I do love medieval European archaeology - there's a lot to know about it and a lot of it. All over the place too. In particular, I'm interested in battlefield archaeology and osteoarchaeology. If you want to know more about either or simply want the definition of osteoarchaeology, I suggest you message me up. If you already know what both fields entail and want to chat about it, then may I refer you to the above :D

In the sweet embrace of my lord and deity, the winter, I work as a ski instructor at a little mountain in Vermont. I teach little kids how to ski and have fun while doing it!
I’m really good at
- Procrastinating - it's a highly developed and refined skill
- Skiing
- Making others laugh. Especially my enemies.
- Driving about on a whim
- Taking myself antiseriously
- Pterodactyl noises (WRAAAAWRRK!)
- Geeking out
- Not half bad at German longsword
The first things people usually notice about me
My alarmingly red hair and big smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Oooh boy. This is a challenge.

Fave authors: Isaac Asimov, Neil Gaiman, David B. Coe, David Clement-Davies, Jim Butcher, Terry Prachett, etc. I have a loooooooot of books.

Fave movies: Apollo 13, Inception, Coraline, Disney movies, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Blazing Saddles, Princess Bride, Serenity, and many many more...

Fave shows: Star Trek (all of them, but DS9 is my least favorite), Stargate SG-1, Highlander, Doctor Who, Merlin, X-Files, Quantum Leap, Babylon 5, The Mentalist, Lie to me, Castle, Firefly, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, MacGyver, Warehouse 13, Tiger and Bunny, Journeyman, New Amsterdam, and Ultraviolet.

Fave music: Mostly classic rock, musicals/soundtracks, country, soft rock... I'm not even going to bother and list the artists, I like a lot of music. For instance, here's a quick list of what my Pandora played: The Beatles, Rent, Dave Brubeck, Wicked, Elton John, Louis Armstrong, ABBA, Buffalo Springfield, Miles Davis, Moulin Rouge, John Lennon, John Denver, Kansas, Boston, Queen, Jim Croce, Journey, Bon Jovi, Chicago, CCR, AC/DC, Hairspray, medieval English music, etc.

Fave foods: I like meat. And sugar. Steak, chocolate mousse, strawberry cheesecake, mashed potatoes, caesar salad, Italian BMT from Subway, elbows, and Coca-Cola (arguably not a food, I know) are all favorites.

Fave activities: Skiing, playing soccer, sailing, kayaking, snowboarding, driving, singing, people watching, going to car shows, longsword, embarrassing my cat
The six things I could never do without
1. Winter (and the change of seasons)
2. Friends
3. My skis
4. Coca-Cola
5. A good book
6. Music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- Things to do, adventures to have...
- How the universe was formed via the Big Bang (if you're interested, ask me what my theory is)
- Finding the Holy Grail
- Bones
- How to obtain a '63 Corvette Sting Ray coupe
- Whatever book I'm reading
On a typical Friday night I am
Pick 3 (or more):
- Developing new and terrifying drinks
- Figuring out where the best place to stargaze is
- Watching scifi
- Sleeping
- Taking egregiously long baths
- Adventuring with swords
- Adventuring in general
- Mead
- Out drinking with friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I gobbled at a huge white turkey for 15 minutes, in public. It gobbled back and everyone was watching. We're still penpals.
You should message me if
You like offbeat girls and if you love winter sports and/or nerdy things!

Also, if you think you'd be a good stargazing buddy.
