My self-summary
I am friendly, creative, and somewhat shy at first. I'm trying to be more outgoing and social.

I enjoy reading, drawing, painting, live music, knitting, spinning yarn, generally crafty/DIY things (there's something supremely satisfying in creating something from start to finish with my own hands), hanging out with friends. I'm an amateur photographer and a member of the New World Celts here in Lakeland. I adore cooking and baking, though I tend to gravitate more towards the latter if given a choice. I've had multiple people take my name in vain upon tasting my favorite cookie recipe. ;)

I generally dislike the bar/club scene because it's hard enough to hear myself think, much less hold a conversation, but I'll occasionally get the urge to go out for a drink or go dancing with friends.

I have a rather quirky sense of humor and tend to use "dead hookers" as a unit of measurement. IE: "The trunk of my car is huge; I can fit like twelve dead hookers in there. George shouldn't have any trouble fitting a mini-fridge in his rental." My friend and I are currently discussing a hypothetical business venture involving our knitting group, Skinemaxx, and being able to write off strippers on our taxes as a business expense. No, this is not an invitation for cybersex-related PM's.

I support equal rights for the LGBTQ community.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently working night linehaul (fondly "crisis management after dark/herding cats") at a local trucking company. I'm also working on my degree in Psychology part time.
I’m really good at
Listening/being a sounding board, various crafty things, teaching myself new things, being sexy (haha, thanks Korina).
The first things people usually notice about me
I tend to change my hair color at the drop of a hat (though it's usually some shade of red), and I love to laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Good Omens by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman (The only book I've read from either author, oddly enough!)
The Harry Dresden Files by Jim Butcher

Labyrinth, The 10th Kingdom, Radio, Pitch Black, Castle, Stargate Atlantis, White Collar, Leverage, Psych (though the latest episode was annoyingly contrived and plotless crap), Life

Vienna Teng, Josh Groban, Daughtry, Queen, Sting, Manic Street Preachers, Muse, Taking Back Sunday, Samvel Yervinyan, Lucia Micarelli, Deathcab for Cutie, Kodo, Alkaline Trio

Curry, pasta, shrimp, gherkins... pretty much any spicy or ethnic cuisine.
Six things I could never do without
Intelligent conversation
Reading material
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future and what I want to accomplish with my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Literally? ;) I work Friday nights; on days off, I enjoy hanging out with friends at Sacred Grounds coffeehouse in Tampa. Recently, a friend reintroduced me to fishing, and it's a ton of fun! I've managed to catch 3 (admittedly small) sharks in 2 trips. :D
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a closet romantic.

I regularly have either the Bananas in Pajamas theme song or "Drink Milk Love Life" set to the tune of Ode to Joy stuck in my head. If you know what that means without Googling it, you have my attention.

I honestly can't tell if a guy is hitting on me or just being friendly a majority of the time.
You should message me if
You're interested in a potential long-term relationship.

If you do message me, for the love of Bob please write more than "u r cute," or "hi." Trying to make me start the conversation is not a good way to garner favor, guys. :/
The two of us
