My self-summary
I am interested in ideas. I enjoy playing with them, looking at them from different angles, trying to fit them together, or take them apart. This sometimes makes asking me what I think about a given topic dangerous. If I have thought about it, I tend to give… very thorough answers.

What I am looking for is an intellectually curious woman. Someone who enjoys thinking, and who is not threatened by debate. Someone who is willing to really challenge my ideas, and not just be offended when I don’t change them without a convincing argument (and “I said so” is not a convincing argument in most cases). Also, someone who is not hurt when I challenge her ideas. I would be profoundly grateful if you were okay with the fact that when I have little to say, I say little. Oh, and someone who is okay with the fact that I write in sentences.

I would like to meet someone with whom I could go to the movies on occasion, or to the symphony, the theatre, or a museum. Ideally, someone who would be willing to entertain the idea of attending Browncoat Ball. I get tired of traveling alone -- I think that it would be more fun to share it with someone.

Of course, staying home is good too. I am a good cook (I have a diploma), and I enjoy cooking for other people. Actually, cooking dinner and watching a movie or playing board games sounds like a pretty good evening to me.

Many of my answers in the question section have comments, and are probably a good way to learn a bit more about me. If you appreciate the sense of humor I use there, we should talk.
What I’m doing with my life
Professionally, I manage a dental practice in Bryan. My long-term aspirations range through varying degrees of feasibility, including goat farming and opening a chocolate shop.

I am also involved with the “Can’t Stop the Serenity” charity events every year. This means that unless something _very_ important comes up, I will be working at one or more of those events. I believe in Equality Now’s work, and I have a lot of fun at the events.
I’m really good at
Cooking and reading are probably my best skills. I am frequently disappointed at being unable to pursue them simultaneously, but I do tend to concentrate on one task at a time, so I settle for audiobooks when cooking.

Working at the family farm is something which I enjoy greatly, though I do not have the opportunity as often as I would like.

Perhaps unexpectedly, I find that I have become quite skilled in fighting with dental insurance companies.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have a great appreciation of good detective stories, particularly the works of Dorothy Sayers, Rex Stout, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I also tend to enjoy fantasy and science-fiction stories: Mercedes Lackey, Steve Perry, Dune, Ender’s Game, James A. Owen, Tad Williams. My favorite book of all, however, is The Count of Monte Cristo. I read voraciously, and I try to vary my diet, which includes architecture, agriculture, economics, children‘s books, philosophy, history, and pretty much anything else. I also keep copies of Daniel Quinn’s books handy.

About twelve years ago, I stopped watching television -- during grad school and culinary school I was rarely home, so I did not bother getting anything hooked up. That said, I love Firefly, and have been encouraged to explore some of Mr. Whedon's other work.

My interest in movies is quite broad (and possibly a bit too extensive), ranging from Fred Astaire, Cary Grant, and Katharine Hepburn, through Errol Flynn and John Wayne, into Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, and Jean Reno. Other favorites include The Star Wars Trilogy, Real Genius, The Sting, The Saint, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-along Blog, and Eddie Izzard.

Food is fascinating. For one thing, I am always amazed by how excited people get when they receive gifts of food. I have traveled a little, and I enjoy trying new foods. Among my favorite general foods are chocolate, cheese, and bread. Trying to pick a favorite national or ethnic cuisine does not work well for me -- I just try to go with what I am craving at the time.
Six things I could never do without
As long as my mind is still active and useful, I can manage without much of anything at all, really. There are other things without which I should prefer not to do, like chocolate and a library, but I can survive.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a great deal of time thinking, actually. Topics range from agriculture to architecture to literature to anthropology to any number of other areas, some of which begin with letters other than "A".
On a typical Friday night I am
I like to go to downtown Bryan on Friday night. Then I go home and watch a movie, or read a book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am very claustrophobic. Seriously. Please refrain from locking me in a box.
You should message me if
Honestly, if you made it this far, I congratulate you. If, after reading all of this, you think that contacting me would be pleasant, interesting, or possibly even amusing, then proceed.

Also, if you want assistance in proofreading doctoral dissertations or applications to the Evil League of Evil, please feel free to ask.
