My self-summary
I was talking to my friend the other day about dating and love partnership and she said something that might be helpful here: "you're really smart and fun and accomplished and optimistic and kind of a badass in general, and all that is great but what you need is a guy who really likes that you're a pirate."

So there you have it. I'm a pirate. I'll always take advantage of good opportunities ("Look at all those empty seats in front of us... Let's go sit there!") and figure out a way to get things done ("No wine opener? No problem! Got a shoe?") and be up for a new adventure, whenever ("Sky diving tomorrow? Sure!") and I might even be a little bit devious sometimes (remind me to tell you the tale of the TV allowance), but only to our mutual advantage.

Now I'm just hoping to find someone exciting to be boring with, but don't expect life with a cheerful pirate like me to be too boring for too long.
What I’m doing with my life
I still have a lot to learn, but feel like I know more than I used to.
Reading more, hiking as much as I can, throwing dinner party/game nights, and taking up salsa dancing again. Got a job I love (in tech) and laugh about it more often than not.
I’m really good at
Ordering food for large groups of people. Getting through airports in record time. Being a ham. Accepting people for who they are. Listening to and telling a few stories of my own.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair. It's curly.
What cracks me up is once, maybe twice a year I straighten my hair and the transformation is dramatic, so much so that people who know me well do a double/triple take before they realize it's me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Snowcrash, Game of Thrones, anything by Dave Barry, The Help, Blink, I really wanted to like "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" but I really didn't, Gone with the Wind
Movies: The Dark Knight Trilogy, The Shawshank Redemption, A Fish Called Wanda, Crazy Stupid Love, The King's Speech, Chicago
Shows: The Good Wife, Arrested Development, Modern Family, recently watched a few episodes of The West Wing and was reminded of just how great it was, Seinfeld too, I'm getting into House of Cards
Music: I'm a classic rock and oldies kind of girl, but also some more modern pop and rock. And 80's music. I'm learning to love country.
Food: Japanese, Italian, Thai, Vietnamese, Spanish, Moroccan, French... Pick any food. I'm in.
Six things I could never do without
Let's just assume family and friends because clearly that's essential. But the 6 things...

Amazingly comfortable and cozy bed
Time without technology
Music that makes me want to dance
Spontaneous adventures
Common sense
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Fun things to do. What I'm going to eat next. How to extend my trip.
On a typical Friday night I am
One of the following:
- happy hour/drinks/dinner/dancing
- hitting the road for a weekend of skiing or just getting out of town
- dinner party/game night
- movie night with Thai food
- some combination of the above
- some new adventure
- sleeping to get ready for a new adventure
So basically the standard SF answer. Are we all so predictably unpredictable?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can lose hours of the day to watching TED Talks. HOURS. Anything more private than that can only be admitted to over a glass of wine.
You should message me if
I'm a sucker for a nerd with social skills, so if you enjoy your life of intelligent adventures and social events and can roll with punches, let's grab a drink. Or tea. Or a bike ride. Or go to Puerto Vallarta.
The two of us
