My self-summary
Subject to change without notice.

Honeysuckle, green vines, clear rivers with pebbled beds, a hammock on our wide front porch, soft rain on a spring afternoon.

I require green spaces. I love camping. But also the internet.

I moved here from Tennessee, but I'm a Bostonian now. I claim it.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a technical writer when I'm not busy being mama to 5-year-old Gavyn.

I drink a lot of fucking coffee. I love cooking and baking and weird food and getting flour on my face. Beer. It's delicious.

I want to travel all over the world, but I've recently learned it's important for me to have a home base. I want to experience different places, cultures, foods. And I like to have adventures. Let's go. Somewhere. At midnight. For no reason. (Assuming I have a babysitter.)

I read everything. It's a compulsion. Road signs, the backs of cereal boxes, your t-shirt. Every word of menus. All of ask metafilter. Also books.
I’m really good at
Catching other people's written mistakes. (But I won't correct yours---after all, that's what they pay me for.)

Writing about facts. Rewriting fiction. Being a grammar nerd.

Learning. Finding information via search engine. Getting excited about things I'm into. Finding solutions to problems.

Being awkward. I'm kind of strange and anxious but I'm working on learning to relax.

Making delicious food. Baking relaxes me.
The first things people usually notice about me
People comment on my hair. It's very curly. I used to hate it, but now we have a solid working relationship.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read everything. EVERYTHING. Recipes, blog posts, tumblr. I'm in love with words. But I'm a sucker for science fiction and fantasy.

I love NPR. Boston has TWO CHOICES. I love you, Boston. Especially Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me and This American Life and Radiolab.

Take me to the theatre and I'm a happy girl. Plays, musicals, opera, dance. More, please. Most recently I saw Cirque of the Dead, which pushed all my this-is-awesome buttons.

I don't spend too much time watching television or movies, although I do like House of Cards and Downton Abbey. Generally, I'm into a good mindfuck, but I am not into lowbrow comedies. Other things I have enjoyed: Mad Men, Battlestar Galactica, American Horror Story (although I don't normally do horror anything), Doctor Who (before Amy), and even some Glee. I do love Harry Potter.

Dark chocolate is the way to my heart. Also tiramisu. Food is delicious, let's eat. I'm into local food because it's nearly always better. Let's skip the chain restaurant and check out that new place. Especially if it's Indian or Thai or Ethiopean.

My music is pretty random. Ani Difranco has been known to get me through a bad day. I'm into women who have something to say. My main squeeze recently got me into post-rock, specifically Explosions in the Sky. I just want them to come play The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place. The whole thing. Just for me.
Six things I could never do without
My iPhone (I know, but it's true)
Bath bombs from Lush
Reading material
A porch
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to be a better person.

my next adventure.
On a typical Friday night I am
hanging out with my kid. If I happen to have the night off, I might be found out exploring Boston. Or, I might be in the bathtub with a book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a lot of love for catchy pop music. You might find me dancing around my bedroom to Pink or something.

I forget things. A lot. My brain is like Swiss cheese.
You should message me if
you know about the good Zumba instructor in town. Bonus if you want to come, too.

you're a feminist/womanist/kyriarchy-dismantler/not an asshole.

you have an idea for a thing we should go check out together. Or if you know about a delicious coffee place I should try.

you're into ethical nonmonogamy.

Life is too short to respond to boring messages. Be interesting. Show an interest in something I do. Tell me about you. Be specific. Please don't send me the same generic message you send everyone else.

I'm not interested in dating couples, so if you are searching for a third, I'm not the one.
The two of us
