I'm nerdy, awkward, and apparently quite adorable. I love learning and teaching. I find information addicting and can easily get sucked into an interesting book or web page. I prefer to hang out with smart people who can teach me things.
I'm shy in new situations and around new people. In the past I put my foot in my mouth a lot. Now I prefer to listen and watch until I'm more comfortable. I enjoy spending time with small groups of friends. I'm strongly in favor of cuddling. I'm loyal to my close friends and would like more friends to share adventures with. I enjoy cooking for people.
I am somewhat of a contradiction. By day I appear to be a naive and driven software engineer. At night I hang out with wonderful people with various hair colors, piercings, tattoos, and delightful perversions. I'm happy that they accept me even though I wear button down shirts sometimes.
For fun I ski, knit, cook, read, and explore restaurants, zoos, and museums. I recently found a form of exercise I really enjoy and that has been taking up a couple evenings a week.
I've met little music I actually dislike but equally little that I'm in a raging passion about. I enjoy live performances and playing music more than recordings.
I like food. Food is tasty. I'm picky about desserts and carrots are a right abomination but I like pretty much everything else.
a library or the internet
someone or something to care for
nature to retreat into
Bonus item for fall and winter: a knit beanie. I'm rarely without a hat once the rain starts.
