My self-summary
Stepped away from this site for a bit, and recently came to the conclusion that maybe there IS something missing from my life after all, so I'm giving it another shot. The profile below is a couple months old, but it's still pretty much accurate. My hair is shorter, and I've read a couple more books, but I'm still basically the same person. I'll update it again eventually. ;-)

You know that kinda geeky girl from high school, who sat in the back and was always kinda quiet, but you secretly thought was kinda hot? Ever wonder what happened to that girl, all grown up?

Yeah, that's me.

I've grown into my skin a lot since then, and I know who I am and make no apologies for it. Less quiet. Still bookish. Definitely hotter. Still have a little bit of the absent-minded-professor thing going on. I'm not very good with mundane things like, say, mail. Or, apparently, dating. (Oops. I knew there was something I was forgetting to do...)
What I’m doing with my life
When I figure it out, I'll let you know. :-)

Meanwhile, I do web analytics and advertising tech. I'm pretty good at it, and I generally enjoy it. So, it's working out until I figure out how I'm going to go about saving the world. (Or just taking it over. Haven't decided which yet.)
I’m really good at
Karaoke. Not sure this is something to be proud of.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am very expressive. People can generally tell how my day has been by the way I'm standing or the expression on my face.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like books. I read a lot. I pretty much always have. I could list out a hundred favorite authors here, but most people's eyes would glaze over. If you read SciFi/Fantasy, send me a note, and we can geek out about books - if not, well, I can have interesting conversations on other topics, too. ;-)

Most recent reads, in reverse order:
(Updated: Kate Daniels novels. Still working on The Signal and the Noise. A crappy zombie book I didn't like much. Wool. )
The Name of the Wind. Various Sookie Stackhouse novels. Dune. Gunmetal Magic. The Power Of Habit. Skinny Rules. Dragon Tattoo series. Hunger Games series. Game of Thrones series. Honestly, GoT took so long to read I've forgotten what I read before that.

I really don't watch much TV. Daily Show, Chopped, the occasional home improvement show. Every now and then there's a good SciFi show that catches my attention. BSG, Lost, Game of Thrones. Firefly, of course. I'll watch anything Joss Whedon is involved in. Sitcoms bore me. I don't see the point in crime dramas. I stopped watching network tv a long time ago.

Recently watched through Doctor Who from the beginning and am now a complete addict. This happens.

Musical taste varies wildly. I like almost everything. I do have this weird habit of actually listening to the lyrics, which sometimes makes me nuts because they're so dumb, or make no sense.
The six things I could never do without
Sunlight. Fresh air. Driving with the windows down. Books, in one form or another. Occasionally singing my heart out. Interesting people.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the next adventure. Currently, the next adventure is Dublin and Paris.
On a typical Friday night I am
I really have no typical Fridays. I've been working so much the last couple (6-8) months, I pretty much fell down exhausted on Fridays. And then I went on vacation, and then I came back from vacation, and life hasn't really leveled out again yet.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I will never lie about my age. It's a promise I made myself when I was a kid, watching my older female relatives claim to be 29 for decades. No one believed them, and it makes it look like you lose worth as you get older. I've earned my years and I'm proud of them. And I look damn good.
You should message me if
You're over 30. Nothing personal, I really just don't think I would have anything in common with someone that much younger than me.

You have made SOME effort to fill in your profile, including an actual picture (of you). If I have to, you have to. ;-)

You agree that the Tenth Doctor is the one true Doctor. Sorry Eleven fans, this is a deal breaker. ;-)
