I think that the primary defining feature for me is my sense of humor. Everyone thinks they have a sense of humor. I have objective proof. Really. I realize I am not proving it right now. You'll see.
I am a prof/scientist and consider myself somewhat geeky, but I don't think I strike most people in that way. I'm not shy and am pretty confident. I'm established in my career, though I'm always wanting to get further.
I have to admit to often being a home-body. I love a lazy day at home, cooking, staring at the moving picture box, but I am very open to non-couch-potato activities. I do like to get out and enjoy day trips to the little towns in the region. I'm open to just about anything...not dancing.
*Update* I was recently dancing. What can I say, I have strong opinions that can be changed. I think that is a positive attribute.
I am also hatching plans for world-domination. Be nice to me now and you'll be fine. Get in on the ground floor.
TV: The Wire, The Sopranos (I miss you), Parks and Recreation, Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Curb. I also like lots of "Reality" TV, which baffles many of my friends. I'm also a big fan of food shows. I have an evolutionary theory about why we are fascinated with reality TV. So there!
Movies: The Shining, Let the Right One In, probably the old Star Wars movies, Marwencol, Bruno, The Godfather I&II, so many more...
Books: I used to be an English Lit minor in undergrad, but now pretty much read only journal articles. On vacation, I'll read Sci Fi or Horror. I have been reading the Ender's Game books and a Stephen King here and there.
Foooooooood: I'm pretty obsessed with food. I am usually planning my meals well ahead of time and love to cook. I love to grill and do so at all times of year. I have been deeply into Thai food for some time and have perfected some recipes. Yum. I am now working on perfecting pizza. I took a pizza-making class recently and just bought a kick-ass professional Kitchenaid mixer. My freezer is filling with different doughs. Check out a recent pizza (cooked on my grill) in my pics.
I just looked at that picture of the pizza and it made me hungry. I'm making another one this weekend.
Why all women love Ryan Gosling.
Why the Neuroscientist Ryan Gosling website has not put my entry up yet.
Hey Girl, unlike an action potential, I have no refractory period.
Whether it is arrogant or lazy when people write "just ask" in the self-summary section.
You are not into casual sex. I prefer my sex super-formal. In fact, I generally do it in a tux and am constantly dropping my monocle at inopportune moments.
You are amused by this:
