My self-summary
First of all, I need to add a disclaimer that I'm not a physicist. I do like the word quark and alliteration, hence the nickname. Mostly, I just tried different combos of words until I found something that wasn't taken that wasn't too awful.

That being said, I do wear a lab coat on a daily basis and have plans to take over the world. I've mastered sarcasm and am working on my evil laugh. I just need to find a loyal henchman to help me carry them out.

When I'm not planning on taking over the world, I'm exploring it or making plans to check out some new corner of it. In the past few years I've lived or visited in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, France, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Singapore, Mexico, Japan, and Costa Rica. I may have forgotten a country or two. I've filled up my passport once, and want to do it again! I simply need to hop on a plane and travel _somewhere_ every few months. I'm not sure where my next adventure will be. Ideas? Right now I'm thinking Southern Africa.

I usually have at least one unusual hobby. Aerial dance? I'm ready for Cirque du Soleil. Tap dance? Move over Fred and Ginger. Pole dance? Yes, please. Burlesque? I can strip off a glove like Dita. This year I've gotten into ballroom dancing and will be dancing at the Dickens Fair this holiday season. I've also just learned how to ride a motorcycle and am so pleased to finally have an M1!

I'm also the girl who organizes outings that usually turn out (totally unintentionally) hilarious. My last attempt to play bocce ball turned into a swing dance session with folks who have been dancing for the past sixty years. It was unexpected, but fabulous. That's how my life goes! Hopefully I'll find someone on here who is unexpected, but fabulous, to share my crazy adventures with.
What I’m doing with my life
I spent far too many years in school, but have a great job that challenges me every day and gives me an excuse to walk around in a lab coat. Everyone looks more intelligent in a lab coat.
I’m really good at
making messes. I do try try to be tidy, but entropy has a way of gaining the upper hand. I make a special effort to maintain appearances for others, though. I also have a slew of other fairly useless talents like: milking cows, pole dancing, and baking a fantastic apple pie. On second thought, I'm sure there's a career in there...
The first things people usually notice about me
is my wicked grin. Or my expressive face. I have the worst poker face ever. Don't ever take me to Vegas to gamble.

That is unless you're male. Then you're probably not going to notice my face first, but we'll just pretend that you did.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I'll read just about anything you put in front of me. Some of the books I've enjoyed recently have been the Hunger Games trilogy, Ender's Game, Cutting for Stone, American Gods, Outliers, and Ready Player One. All book recommendations are welcome.

Movies: A sampling of my favourites are: Europa Europa, Fight Club, Office Space, Dangerous Beauty, What Dreams May Come, The Bourne Identity, and Rabbit-Proof Fence. Apparently I really like Dramas, Indies, and Rom Coms.

Shows: I'm not much of a TV watcher, but a few I follow from time to time are Weeds, Glee, True Blood, Hung, Once Upon a Time, Game of Thrones, The Big Bang Theory, and How I Met Your Mother.

Music: My favourite band of all time is Eisley. Other than that, I listen to music all across the board - I'm not much of a music snob, but I do like something I can sing along with. This holds true even if I don't actually know the words.

Food: Mexican food is probably my favourite cuisine, with Thai a close second. I just found out that I like sushi, too, despite the seafood/fish aversion (see below). I really love to cook and bake. Sometimes I think I missed my calling as a 50's housewife (except for the cleaning bit). I can rock an apron.
Six things I could never do without
Internet, coffee, sleep, friends, passport, toilet paper.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how I'm going to take over the world.

Also - I've started paying attention to how men answer the OK Cupid questions. Almost every man claims to have a higher than average sex drive. So are OK Cupid men disproportionately horny or do men have an unrealistic idea of the average guy's sex drive?

And on that note - how do men even function when they're thinking about sex so often? You're thinking about sex right now, aren't you? Of course you are...
On a typical Friday night I am
having a beer with friends and looking forward to sleeping in the next morning.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I say I have a seafood allergy, but I really just don't like seafood. On the plus side, I will never order lobster at a restaurant. I don't care what you eat.
You should message me if
...you're up for spontaneous outings and random adventures. I tend to be attracted to men who are smart and ambitious, but also a bit irreverent.

You love to cook and can show me how to cook beef without turning it into jerky. Seriously - I won't even attempt to cook a steak because it would be a travesty.

You know an amazing must visit spot in SF I can't miss. I've been here for all of a month!
