My self-summary
I think about food a fair bit -- I do research about it, cook a lot, and have done some food-related jobs. My kitchen is slowly starting to look like a tool shed with all the various appliances/equipment/weird spices in jars that I have lying around.

When not cooking, I'm either taking dance classes or watching crappy but awesome comedy movies.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a researcher, and did various jobs along the way before I went back to grad school.
I’m really good at
Reading maps, making puff pastry, not sleeping through the night if I'm nervous about something, grocery shopping (is that a skill?)
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably that I almost always have a backpack with me. (it's bright yellow, hence noticeable)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Last favorite book: Slaughterhouse 5.

Last favorite movie: Couldn't stop laughing with blades of glory or dinner for schmucks.

Favorite shows: Top Chef. The wire. Breaking Bad. The Sopranos. I loved the ridiculousness of "V". House of cards.

Favorite music: I've become lazy and let pandora decide.

Favorite food: Bread -- got into baking my own and fresh bread is awesome. Then I slather unhealthy amounts of butter on it.
The six things I could never do without
computer, knives, uniqlo clothes, oven, bike, contact lenses
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Academic stuff. Lately it's been all about radiation and food safety.

How awesome South Park is.

Dreaming about taking a whole winter off and relocating to an awesome mountain where i'd snowboard non-stop. If you're part of a group that hikes up mountains to ride them down, get in touch! Been wanting to get into that for the longest time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Making cocktails, either for myself because I'm staying home or for friends. Or going out for drinks / dinner.
You should message me if
If in response to this question, you didn't write "You'll make me laugh."

I'd like to think I tell awesome jokes, but I crack under pressure. (and it puts all the onus of getting a laugh on my side...would probably be easier if you ate pot-brownies before our date)
