I kind of have a love/hate relationship with online dating. While its fun and interesting to see all of you lovely people out there, its kind of like window shopping. Here we are putting the best we have to offer out there all in a few paragraphs like so much binary code on a programmer's screen. I suppose in some respects its OK, as when you start looking into biochemistry, we're all just a mass of 1's and 0's like everything else in the universe.
I'm cautiously optimistic. I like looking around at all of the interesting people out there because it gives me some hope for the future and on most days, that's all I need.
I enjoy the occasional movie, but do not have or care to own a television.

Farewell to Doc Watson.. got to see him play a couple of times at the Troy Music Hall. Johnny Cunningham was probably the best fiddler I've ever heard.
I like to make meals from whatever is in season at the local farm stands. I eat healthy and try to eat local when possible. I'm interested in learning more about responsible harvesting of wild medicinals and edibles.
While I certainly know my beers, I tend to buy wines if there are pictures of horses on the label. Go figure.
Oh, and beer.
However, lately I think about going to some other picturesque country setting where no one knows me and running a small farm house brewery. My lovely partner and I would run it together, and in the converted barn we would brew authentic and old-world farm house ales which no one really makes anymore. I would balance the water chemistry and she would enjoy mashing and shoveling out the lauter-tun. Hey, I can dream.. I usually think about these things when trying to learn something like the intimate details of the krebs cycle. Its somewhat related.. it takes a lot of ATP to brew beer.
Also from a biological and geochemical standpoint, all the pieces of saran wrap you've ever used still exist, more or less.
You feel the need to elicit with an illicit response (for the English majors).
You can convince me that the internet isn't full of people that believe other people want to look at pictures of their cat.
