My former employer described me as a bohemian scientist that has a problem with authority. I believe he meant it as an insult, I took it as a compliment. When he fired me, he shook my hand and told me I would do well out there. For a 4 month stint I worked as a college barista making a third of what I make now and loving every minute of it. I'm a survivor and a rebel, Dottie.
I'm hopelessly optimistic and a little gullible also I'm seemingly guileless. I have a dry sense of humor though I'm mostly cavalier, never cynical. I'm a little bit of an odd duck. Mildly nerdy though not too nerdy, can fit into most social situations with ease.
I'm honest to a fault, which can be bad and good at times. I know when to shut up, which is a good thing I have found.
I also have a knack, or should I say talent, to get people who usually don't like anyone to like me. This has happened too many times to just chalk it up to random coincidence. I believe this to be because I'm a genuine person and I like the fact that I can make friends with curmudgeon people. I would rather make friends with a person who is difficult than a person who gets along with just about anyone.
I am endearing, awkward and clever.
Also in light of the current political climate I've been watching the West Wing. Never really got into it when it was on but better late than never. It's a bit schmaltzy but kind of therapeutic in this day and and he though I'm starting to develop a crush on Allison Janney.
My favorite movie is books.
I like to read biographies of awesome people. The last one I read was about Houdini and I can talk to you at great length about him. Also Kim Kardashians biography was pretty good, and when I say Kim Kardashian I mean Nikola Tesla.
Music, I usually like a lot of bands that start with "The" in them.
The Strokes, The Sounds, The Hives, The White Stripes, The Smiths.
I am a huge fan of TV. House, Parks and Recreation, Community, 30 rock, Fringe, Peep Show, Sherlock, Dr. Who, Burn Notice, Dexter, Game of Thrones. I am up to date on current shows via internet piracy.
As for really bad tv shows I watched all 10 seasons of Smallville, which was getting pretty ridiculous by the end of it. Hey, at least I don't watch reality tv.
Food, spicy, anything with chipotle in the name. Ethopian food, all day every day.
Where have all the grammar nazis gone? I'm surrounded by people that say "me and so and so". I don't have the best grammar but come on people.
How amazing grocery stores are. What a wonderful time it is to be alive even though everyone seems to enjoy reminding me it isn't. We live in a time and place where we have better lifestyles than royalty in olden times.
How we have shifted from a capitalistic to a consumeristic society. We don't make jobs anymore, we make things and we find out ways of making these things cheaper.
I swoon for eye makeup that is on point.
I once called the "Eat This, Not That" Guy a c---sucker on a first date. Needless to say there wasn't a second date but it felt good to get that off my chest.
OKCupid is the Mos Eisley of dating sites.
I never thought this was important but please have the ability to drink. I'm much more fun and you will think I'm much more fun if you have a drink or two. Will power and self control are pretty attractive.
