My self-summary
The more of these dates I go on the more I realize I am awesome, like righteous cowboy lightning. Rick Sanchez is my spirit animal. I'm still on here which means I still haven't found someone who can keep up.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, a lot. I've worked my way up to a project subject material expert on a large biotech firm that grows pancreatic cancer cells modified to express pig proteins which the immune system reacts to. If any of this at all interests you or science in general you should message me. I'm literate in science.

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.
I’m really good at
Getting into trouble, getting out of trouble. Breaking minor laws. Making messes. Science, science, science.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall and I have formerly John Snow hair. Honestly, I've been complemented on my hair multiple times. Now my hair looks rather Lynchian.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I suppose I just want to ultimately have a deep and meaningful conversation with someone about Fringe or the Prisoner. Actually I would love to talk to anyone who has actually seen the Prisoner, seriously.

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.
Six things I could never do without
I recently moved so I threw a lot of my unnecessary stuff away. But if I was forced to choose 6 items

The Internet.
Chipotle Burritos.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
When Muscato grapes will be coming back in season.

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.
On a typical Friday night I am
I work Sunday to Wednesday so Friday is kind of like my middle weekend day. Been trying to behave lately and get back into shape. I do drink, on occasion, because I'm not a total tool.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
According to Okc my personality is more sloppy, more independent, and more sex driven than myself.

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.
You should message me if
If you can sing the theme song to America's Funniest Home videos hosted by Bob Saget. We potentially have a lot in common.

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.
The two of us
