I have this thing where I laugh so hard I start crying - my friends promise me it's endearing - so if you tell a joke and it results in tears it's a good thing.
I performed craniosurgery on a mouse once. Don't worry - it was for research.
I really, really wish I could like red wine, but I just can't wrap my head around the whole lukewarm beverage thing.
A number of years ago I was in the audience for a taping of The Colbert Report and caught one of the WristStrong bracelets that Stephen flung into the crowd. So the two of us kind of have a connection.
I hate Nutella. Deceives you into thinking it's delicious chocolate spread, and then BAM - hazelnut, bitch.
I'm looking for someone I can be myself around. That's terribly cliche, I know, but I've been on too many dates with guys around whom I've felt I had to put on some sort of act, and it is truly, utterly exhausting. I'm very independent and value my time to myself; but when I've had enough of that I want somebody I can explore the local bar and restaurant scene with, share a bottle of wine and play Scrabble with, and make me laugh so hard my sides hurt. I want to spend Saturday night out together, wake up late on Sunday, and do the crossword cuddled up in bed. Followed by French toast, also eaten in bed. If these sound like things you'd be into - message me!
(And, fellas - my name is not Alex.)
And on a completely different note - I'm also really good at cooking.

In random order, obviously. Family is always first.
