My self-summary
I'm pretty much the work-hard-play-hard sort. I'm a grounded optimist. I like to be happy and to see others happy. If you're into drama, please kindly stay far away. :P
What I’m doing with my life
Work has me all over the Bay and up to Sac. Just enjoying the ride right now.
I’m really good at
keeping ridiculous hours. I like to cat nap and stay up late/early, which is ironic because I don't care too much for cats. hmm...

staying hydrated. ^_^

cooking dishes in a well-seasoned wok.
The first things people usually notice about me
people seem to think I'm at least 1.5 inches taller than I really am.

my smile :)

I have a high alcohol tolerance, evident by boot-of-beer-pic.

I get quiet when I'm nervous, especially around men I don't know...this is also known as having no game. haha
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
scifi, fantasy, romance, action, oldies, musicals!

Books: Song of Ice and Fire Series, Pride and Prejudice, The Princess Bride, Harry Potter & The Hunger Games (for adolescent novels, they were pretty darn good)

Movies: Die Hard, Star Wars (Ep 4,6,5,3,1,2...from favorite to least favorite), Spaceballs, The Matrix, A Walk to Remember, Serenity, Pride and Prejudice, The Sound of Music, Shaun of the Dead, Lord of the Rings, vaudeville musical movies from the 40s and 50s (Singing in the Rain, Meet Me in St. Louis, the Harvey Girls), An Affair to Remember, Princess Mononoke, Ocean's Eleven and Ocean's Thirteen (but 12 is only "eh"), Apocalypto, The Rock (best SF movie...ok Dirty Harry's up there too)

Shows: The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, Friends, Seinfeld, Star Trek: Next Generation, Star Trek: Voyager, Firefly, The Big Bang Theory, Mad Men

Music: almost anything w lyrics and a melody, random alternative and folk (kate nash, dave matthews band, jason mraz, coldplay, joshua radin, matt nathanson, iron and wine, florence and the machine, the theater fire, bon iver), oldies (elvis, the everly brothers, frank sinatra, dean martin, the carpenters), Adele, John Legend, Sara Bareilles, banjos (just because ^_^)

Food: I think it's funny this is usually a list of ethnicities, so I dare to be different. peanuts, mangosteens, pringles, cashews, smoked gouda, salmon, boneless skinless chicken thighs, oysters, lemons, oreos, dishes requiring bay-leaves, oranges, sour patch kids, roast duck, ice cold strawberry-infused water, biscuits and gravy...
Six things I could never do without
3 essentials: Family, Friends, and Good Health
3 things that make having the essentials all the more enjoyable (especially, let's say, in a zombie apocalypse): Laughter, Food, and the potential for Technological Advancement (which includes running water, fire, and possible ways to elude said zombie apocalypse)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my future, the Future, and what inanimate objects would say if they could talk.
On a typical Friday night I am
grabbing a beer with friends at a local SF bar, eating with the family, going out for a movie, meeting up with friends for a late night dessert, and/or just hanging out at home listening to music or watching a good show/movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have quirks. =)

I'm horrible at video games! It doesn't seem that personal, but when I'm at a party and people start to force smash bros or Mario Kart on me, I turn beet can get rough. (I know--first world problems!)

my dad still makes my mom laugh after >25 years of marriage. I think it's adorable, and hope to find that someday.
You should message me if
you managed to read my entire "favorite..." list, you think (but do not hope) that zombies can be a reality, Jameson with a ginger back is your go-to drink, you have an amazing dog, honesty and loyalty are at the top of your core values list, you like to take initiative in life and you're ready to bring it! (and if your mental response to this statement is "oh shnaps, challenge accepted" haha), or you don't mind the use of random ellipsis...

happy okcupid-ing! =)

PS: please, please, do not TELL me you have "Asian/yellow fever"...if you have it that's fine, but I do not want to know that that's your sole reason for messaging me :/
The two of us
