My self-summary
I'm a geeky, romantic hedonist.

Geeky means I think a lot, about a lot. I'm a voracious consumer of all kinds of media, and an inveterate know-it-all.

Romantic means I believe in love. I'm a sucker for love stories and cheesy romantic gestures, and am looking to live a love story full of said gestures. The way to do that, I feel, is to meet more people than I have been (SUCH an introvert) and have adventures until I find myself in my love story. One cannot force these things.

Hedonsit means I love sensory pleasure. This includes, but is not limited to: really good food, sex, drugs, exercise, beautiful art, music, roller coasters, warm fires on cold days, and long naps.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm teaching high school English, and figuring out exactly how I'm going to save the world.
I’m really good at
reading, writing, cribbage, puns, stir-fry, knowing what time it is without looking at the clock, trivia, reaching high shelves, knowing when my students are goofing off on computers.
The first things people usually notice about me
My red hair usually beats out my height, but it's almost always one of the two. There was one time a 2nd-grader told me I looked like an artist, but I think that was mostly the cardigan.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I could literally fill this text box, but that would be obnoxious. Here are my top five of each.
J. R. R. Tolkien, Neal Stephenson, Neil Gaiman, Stephen King, Ernest Hemingway
Pulp Fiction, The Princess Bride, Star Wars (most of them), The Big Lebowski, Wall-E
TV Shows:
Star Trek (most of them), Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, Arrested Development, Community
Josh Ritter, The Doors, The White Stripes, The Soledad Brothers, Bruce Springsteen
Sushi, Chicken Tetrazzini, Stir-Fry, Irish Stew, Girl Scout Cookies
The six things I could never do without
Books, Beer, Bikes, Friends, Family, Frisbee.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Cognition, happiness, football, school, books, culture, politics, gender, media, sex.
On a typical Friday night I am
unwinding from the school week, hitting bars from Hudson to St. Paul to Stillwater, playing board games.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
depends on who I'm talking to. Get to know me, then ask.
You should message me if
1) You share any of my interests and want to hang out. I'm new to the Twin Cities area, and want to meet new people and see new places.

2) You're looking for a geeky, romantic hedonist to settle down with.
