My self-summary
I arrived in Portland yesterday, well according to when I'm writing this. I'm a writer: technical for an income, scifi for passion.
Whimsical is my current favorite word, and so random truth...
I have a completely bizarre collection of teaspoons. I swear flatware somehow replicates and invites over friends, so one day I just decided to keep all the spoons that randomly found their way into my silverware drawer. I now have a separate slot for the out of place spoons.
I'm terribly independent, able to take care of myself, go to movies by myself, that sort of thing, but I would prefer company.
I'm looking for a man who's fun; someone I can take turns with for who is dragging us off to new things, but who will also be okay with the occasional couch potato cozy. I need someone who can appreciate my geeky side- think Star Wars, Doctor Who, Ren Faire obsessive, but I'd also like someone who challenges my intellectual side. Someone willing to read my work is a bonus, maybe even a must. And of course animal lover is also a must.
What I’m doing with my life
I published my first novel as an eBook, and I'm working on the next. If you're curious, look it up. It's called Living in the Epilogue.
I’m really good at
writing, which is not to say writing profiles, and certainly not writing poetry, but I am excellent at writing fiction. I also excel at reading and procrastinating and goofing around, am passably fair at dancing and singing, and am an acknowledged champion at generally being an odd duck.
The first things people usually notice about me
My laugh, my brilliant intellect and fashion model looks, my sarcasm.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Better authors than books as there are so many- Tad Williams, Todd Boss, Robin Hobb, Stuart Dybek, Jim Butcher, Carrie Vaughn, C.J Cherryh, C.S. Friedman, Michael Chabon, Jonathon Lethem, etc. TV: I probably watch too much, but I love scifi shows and mysteries. Music I like, just in general. I am particularly fond of folk root type rock and alt rock. Food: Greek, food, Thai food, Sushi, pizza, burgers, steak, mmm steak...it's close to dinner time. Clearly I'm not a vegetarian- animals are designed to eat each other so I have a hard time with the concept that this is evil. My cat is not evil...okay my cat IS evil but not because she eats meat. All that said, I will go out of my way to get the free range chicken eggs :P
The six things I could never do without
blah blah blah- friends family air food cell books.
I wouldn't be me without:
My dog, my willingness to travel, my penchant for long and random conversations, giddy school girl excitement over geeky things, silliness, my over active imagination.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Possible alien cultures, politics and ethics, actual human cultures: evolution interaction etc, writing (how I should spend less time thinking about writing and more time doing it), the meaning of things, how to least annoy and best serve my friends, what to do with myself, how annoying the pervasiveness of vampire novels is even if I like a lot of them.
On a typical Friday night I am
Not having as much fun as I should. If you're cute, smart, and fun you should rescue me ;)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have very bizarre dreams and have been known to write them down. The one with the elephant building still freaks me out.
You should message me if
Drop me a note If:
*you are a little bit intellectual, mixed with a fair amount geek and a lot of just pure silly
*you are capable of appreciating a spectrum that spans blockbuster excitement to intellectual and mind-bending.
