My self-summary
I like to read. I prefer vanilla ice cream to chocolate, coke to pepsi, and waffle fries over the ordinary kind. My favorite meal is brunch. I hate assembling furniture. I ask a lot of questions.

I believe in ethical non-monogamy, where partners are honest about their other relationships. It's definitely not for everyone, but it's worked very well for me.
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying it. Traveling when I can, spending time with the people I care about, reading, trying to be a better person.

I work at an office job. I actually enjoy it a lot of the time. I get to work fairly independently on some pretty detailed stuff. It's interesting enough that I'm not bored, but simple enough that I can listen to music or podcasts and still get things done.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh, telling stories, reading maps (handy when the GPS goes out!), planning vacations, remembering details, and sleeping late. I'm also excellent at kissing!
The first things people usually notice about me
Lately, my hair. Redheads seem to catch a lot of attention. Sometimes my laugh, which can be quite loud. I think that's a good thing!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn at least once a year since I was 10, and I've had the same copy since I was 12 or so. It's definitely my favorite book. Otherwise, I very much like non-fiction. A good biography will keep me happy for days. Antonia Frasier is always a favorite. I'm currently reading Carrie Brownstein's "Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl", which I'm enjoying quite a lot.

I don't watch a ton of movies. I loved "The Princess Bride", and I've enjoyed all of the View Askewniverse movies I've watched. "Terminator" was pretty cool. I'm a huge Disneyphile. My favorite Disney films are Hercules, Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid". My favorite Disney-Pixar films are "Wall-E" "Finding Nemo" and "Up". I really enjoyed the new Star Wars movie. Still haven't seen the most recent Hunger Games, but it's on my list.

TV: During the NHL season, hockey if at all possible. Otherwise, not a whole lot of TV. Reruns of Downton Abbey and West Wing. Archer, Portlandia, Jeopardy. But really, hockey more than anything else.

When it comes to music, I like a bunch of different things: Asylum Street Spankers, Lady Gaga, Andrew Bird, The Magnetic Fields, Belle and Sebastian, Amanda Palmer, OK Go, Fiona Apple, Ke$ha, Sleater-Kinney, the Mountain Goats, They Might Be Giants, Rilo Kiley, Jack's Mannequin, blink 182. I really enjoy classical music, especially Chopin and Rachmaninoff. I've been listening to the Hamilton soundtrack constantly, like everyone else in the world.

I love all food, but especially Mexican, Thai and Indian. My favorite dessert is key lime pie, followed closely by cheesecake. I'm also a pretty good cook, when I try.

There's no category for podcasts here, which is just wrong. I'm an avid listener. My standards are The Savage Lovecast, The Puck Podcast, The Steve Dangle Podcast, and a few Disney podcasts (The DisUnplugged and Be Our Guest, and if you're a Disney fan to the point where you listen to either of those, let's be friends).
The six things I could never do without
1. Friends and family, especially the friends who have become my extended family. I don't see my parents and sister often, but I've been adopted by lovely people here. They make my life significantly more fulfilling, and fun.

2. A sense of humor: If I couldn't laugh, I don't know what I would do. I've learned to roll with the punches, but it's good to be able to laugh even when things are rough.

3. New people. Particularly friendly ones. I love going out alone and striking up conversations with strangers.

4. Hockey. I adore the Sharks and their collection of beautiful beards, and I loved watching them last season. I'm psyched to see what this season brings. The Sharks are my #1, but I also follow the Maple Leafs. And if neither of those them are playing, I'll still likely have a game on during the season.

5. The ability to travel! I love exploring new places. I took a cruise to Bermuda this fall, and it was amazing. I'm looking forward to my next adventure, but I'm not sure what it will be.

6. Quick-dry top coat. It is a gift from chemistry, and I value it in a way that's hard to explain while still sounding like a reasonable person.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The people I love. The trips I'm planning to take, the things I meant to do but didn't, the people I need to call. When the next opportunity to go to brunch will be. Whether or not Burnsie's beard is long enough to be braided.
On a typical Friday night I am
likely hermiting at home and recovering from the week. Or hanging out with the boyfriend, his wife and their kids for dinner and some games.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I see a therapist once a month. I'm on an unending mission to improve myself!
You should message me if
If you feel like it. If I seem interesting, if we seem compatible, if something I said made you want to know more. Those are all good reasons.

Also a good reason: you want to talk hockey. Because my god can I go on about my team, and I probably want to know all about yours.
