That's the short version. If none of those were a deal breaker I can get into a little more detail... shall I?
I just finished grad school. I don't think that makes me any smarter than I was but it does give me an excuse to toss around words like "shall" in everyday conversation. I love sports: I'm a huge hockey fan (Go Canes!) and tortured Wolfpack fan. I enjoy a nice bike ride, especially on a quiet evening and I've reached an unimpressive plateau in my disc golf skillz. I like trying new things but I also love a quiet night in - I think life should be a good mix of the comfortable and the adventurous.
I have a very sarcastic sense of humor and I regularly laugh at the kinds of things that usually only amuse 13 year-old boys. By the way, I think laughter is pretty kick-ass.
I'm a big fan of science and technology. I'm always trying to keep up with the latest news and trends and I'm one of those weird people who actually reads non-fiction. And... I've put you to sleep, haven't I?
Ok, to sum up, I'm open to meeting new people and finding some time for a (good) beer, a movie or some stimulating conversation. If that sounds good to you, drop me a note!
When I'm not doing that I'm usually looking into some social media tools or occasionally doing some freelance writing or web design.
And when I'm not doing that I'm trying to find time to hang out with my friends and family, play a board game, catch a hockey game, walk my dog, ignore my garden, watch some TV, read a book - you get the gist.
TV: I routinely watch Mythbusters, Community, HIMYM, Castle, Glee and I'm totally in love with Fringe which means it will be cancelled tomorrow. Forgive the cynicism but I'm also a Joss Whedon fan so I've been burned (die, Fox, die!!) before. I'm catching on to the likes of New Girl and Suburbia and I hear I'll love Walking Dead so I guess I should look into that.
MOVIES: Back to the Future, Shawshank Redemption, Usual Suspects, Stranger Than Fiction, Serenity, Dogma, Evolution, Grosse Point Blank, Ghostbusters... Nuts. I know I'm missing a bunch. Think funny/ twisted/ sci-fi and yeah... romantic. Sorry, I am a girl.
BOOKS: Mmmm... I read fast so it's hard to keep track - I love Dick Francis, Ken Follet, Jasper Fforde and I'd read anything JK Rowling did. Right in the middle of Hunger Games trilogy now - jury is still out on that. Recently read some Erik Larsen and I'll be back for more of his.
FOOD: Mexican (I could eat it everyday), dim sum, sushi, thai, italian, greek. Not a huge fan of Indian. I'll try anything once. Love good beer and wine!
If I'm home I might actually be trying to get through my Netflix queue or playing a little XBox.
One more thing. I think a relationship needs a good foundation - you have to like each other before you fall in love so I think it's important that we can be best friends.
You should *not* message me if you write sentences without capitalization or punctuation. Or if you want to convert me to [insert religion or political party here]. Or if your favorite beer is Corona.
But really, if you're still reading at this point then hell, good work! Drop me a note!
