I am just as likely to nerd out about the renewable energy physics I work on for my research as I am to go on about how amazing Bonobo or Soul Coughing or March Fourth Marching Band are or how much I enjoy climbing my favorite tree in Boulder and indulging in a pot of tea. I love playing music and board games and working in machine shops. I pretty much need to go dancing at least a few times a month to stay sane (blues dancing is my current passion, but I'll dance to any good music).
I am on okcupid wondering if I can find a partner in crime. An adventure buddy, lover, mentally and emotionally challenging and inspiring, independent whole-on-her-own-but-more-whole-together, badass of a partner. That's not something I'm looking for on a first date, but it's something I'm open to.
It keeps me plenty busy and I love it.
Music: A eclectic selection of nearly everything - Medeski, Martin, and Wood; Ojos de Brujo, Four Tet, Toubab Krewe, Bonobo, Led Zeppelin, Mussorgsky, Milky Chance, Devotchka, Barenaked Ladies, Gotan Project, Gomez, The Flaming Lips, Quantic, Paper Bird, Tunng, David Grisman, Caravan Palace, Alt-J, Andrew Bird, Beck, Barenaked Ladies, The Weepies... I'm always down for listening to new music and especially for going out to see live music. I'm currently obsessed with Disclosure. Trashy in all the best ways :-)
Food: Pretty much anything. I love cooking - especially luxurious breakfasts and sumptuous omelettes - and will pretty much make and eat anything at least once. Especially if it's Thai or Mexican food. Seriously, those two countries hit the jackpot in the cultural cuisine lottery.
Movies: First place goes to Fantasia. No question. Second to that come I Heart Huckabees, Vanilla Sky, The Stuntman, The Fifth Element, Repo Man, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Dark City, Alice in Wonderland (animated), Citizen Kane and who knows what else. i'm always open to good movies but rarely seem to get around to watching them.
Intimacy (in any form - conversational, physical, emotional).
A digestive tract.
I find myself mainly looking for a long-term relationship right now. I would love to meet awesome people to adventure, friend, go out dancing with, drink tea with, etcetera. And, I would really like to find someone I can connect with, hopefully long-term.
