My self-summary
I hated writing essays in school, and it doesn't seem as though they're any more fun now. But let's give this a shot. Life without laughter is pretty damn boring. I like to laugh a lot, and can find humor all around me. I can take it just as well as I can dish it, and I have a very sarcastic sense of humor, so if you're sensitive to that sort of thing, we probably wouldn't be too great of a match. I try to learn something new everyday, whether it be as useless as some headline on Yahoo that may or may not help out next time I'm playing trivia, or a new way to get somewhere, a new place to go, or something new at work. As my name says, I love cooking. I'm no chef, but I do make a pretty mean chicken marsala. My bulldog is the most important "person" in my life right now, which is the main reason why I'm trying out this site. I'd like to find someone a little less drooly and a lot less hairy to cuddle up and watch a movie with. I enjoy most sports, both watching and playing, though I don't play as much as I used to. Video games are always a fun way to release some built up work stress too. I'm looking for someone who can enjoy these things with me, along with introducing me to some new activities that she enjoys. Someone who enjoys a night on the town, but doesn't have the attitude "But it's Saturday night, we HAVE to go out." Someone who doesn't mind getting a little dirty and going hiking or camping. Some one who enjoys games, all kinds. Professional, trivia, or lose I enjoy them all. If any of this seems interesting to you, let's grab a cup of coffee or a a glass of wine and see if we can laugh till it hurts.
What I’m doing with my life
Just living life today and seeing what the next one brings.

Being the private servant for my bulldog. He has me trained well.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh. It seems to come naturally. Though one of my friends was having a really bad day a while back and asked me to "say something funny" and I was like a deer in the headlights. Trying to perform on cue is not as easy as it sounds.
I've been told I'm a good listener. Of course I've also been told to shut up and keep my opinions to myself. It's funny how different people perceive things differently.

I love cooking and trying new foods. I'm by no means a gourmet chef, but I can hold my own in the kitchen, and learn something new almost every time I make something different. What's your favorite dish to make/eat?
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my sense of humor. I can be pretty shy right at first, but it doesn't take long to get a gauge of just how far I think I can go with my humor, and it just seems to snowball from there.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't get to read as much as I used to, probably because I never think to.

Movies, I prefer action or comedy, but I'm not opposed to the occasional super serious drama.

I can listen to pretty much any music, though if given the choice I tend to go for more rock/alternative, classic rock, and (though I'm not always happy to admit to it) current cheesy pop. Linkin Park is a favorite, as are the Rolling Stones and Green Day.

As for food, I'm not very picky at all. Fish is at the bottom of my list, but other than that I'll eat pretty much anything put in front of me. Though I'd have to say Chinese, Pizza and Mexican are my top 3, with Thai and Italian close behind.
Six things I could never do without
1. My family
2. My computer
3. My phone
4. My bulldog
5. My morning shower
6. For lack of a better answer, oxygen?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The greater meaning of life. Why are we here? Where are we going? And if you believe that, I've got some great ocean front property in Colorado for sale cheap.

More realistically, how can I have the most fun, and enjoy life to the fullest, while still making a decent living? And when my dog stares at me, what's he really thinking?
On a typical Friday night I am
I enjoy going out for drinks with friends, movies, dinner. I haven't been bowling in years, but I've been getting the itch to try it again recently. Or getting to bed early so I can get up Saturday morning and go for a nice hike.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ask me after a couple of drinks and I'll answer pretty much anything.
You should message me if
You like anything you've read on here, or you have any questions for me. You like to laugh. You love dogs. You know of a great hiking spot you're willing to share.
The two of us
