My self-summary
I regularly make jokes about running away and joining the circus. I won't. Even though I'd be an awesome lion tamer.

I work too much, but I love what I do a good portion of the time. When I'm not working though, I'll do whatever I can to not think about it: go to the roller derby, stalk the dog park (I have a serious weakness for anything fluffy), wander around the bookstore, find a BBC crime drama on netflix and pour a glass and a half of wine.

According to my friends my level of sarcasm has reached such subtly that they never know when I'm serious anymore... I take a sort of perverse pride in that. I guess that means I should take communication skills off my linkedin profile... damn shame.
What I’m doing with my life
I travel whenever I can... Texas, California, Deep South, western Europe, Mexico, Iceland... I do it to explore, to take photos, to talk to strangers but definitely not to sit in a resort and only see the same people I saw on the plane.

I also have a job job... I work at a publisher doing a few different things involving making it easier to use content but the most rewarding thing I do is run initiatives to make products accessible to users with different needs.
I’m really good at
Putting together furniture without instructions and recycling wine bottles. Rolling my eyes, wriggling my ears, and sticking out my tongue. Procrastinating. Staying quiet long enough to get people to tell me more than they intended.
The first things people usually notice about me
My shameful overuse of ellipses...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read endlessly... Ann Patchett, Richard Ford, Richard Russo, and Shirley Hazzard are favorites these days. I've read everything Truman Capote wrote but only after everything Kurt Vonnegut wrote, love Roald Dahl (both his children's and adult works) and suspect that Mary Roach and I are destined to be best friends.

I started watching Shameless recently (UK, then US). I'm a sucker for a good costume drama. 30Rock, Parks and Rec, and anything else that will give me a laugh. I don't have cable, so I rely on netflix and hulu to keep me up to date. In other words, no... I didn't see last nights episode. Of Anything.

Music is hard to pin down. I'll pretty much listen to anything that isn't hardcore metal... I love music, but I'm no good when it comes to listing off an impressive collection of obscure indie rock bands.
The six things I could never do without
Cheese (Literal and Figurative)
My Camera
Empty Apartment Dance Parties
Red Wine
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How a decade ago, I was sure that I'd be a grownup by now.
On a typical Friday night I am
Being lazy. I'm a nerd at heart. I love a good book, a movie, a glass or three of wine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was little I thought that driving took a lot of lower body strength because my parents always needed to stop and stretch their legs when we went long distances.
You should message me if
You want to meet up and find something to laugh about.

But also if you're not looking for naked pics, a hookup, or a long term texting relationship in which we never meet in person. And if you can have a conversation with me without bringing up sex immediately. Come on guys.
