My self-summary
Smart, sarcastic, software developer and single mother of 1. Interested in books, movies, music, food. Strange sense of humor. Easy to talk to. Looking for similar sense of humor, conversation, friendship.
What I’m doing with my life
By day, I'm a software developer. By night I play games with an 10 year old. I try to remain plucky and enthused about both.
I’m really good at
Making snarky remarks and calming down people who are having panic attacks. Sometimes at the same time.
The first things people usually notice about me
The glasses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Mysteries and thrillers, sci fi and fantasy. I love when genres mix. Christopher Moore, Stephen King, Matt Ruff, Tom Robbins, Neil Gaiman...

Movies: pretty much the same. From Blockbuster to indie.

Music: Amanda Palmer, Modest Mouse, Decemberists, Ben Folds, Wilco, Pink Floyd, the Shins, Tame Impala, british Invasion bands, Beatles, Broken Bells, Tom Waits, Neutral Milk Hotel, sigur ros , Magnetic Fields, The Editors and Interpol, collections of old 80s alternative, old Rolling Stones, currently on rotation.
The six things I could never do without
Modern Plumbing, Corrective lenses, Internet connections, cake, a good book..and something else.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'd do in the event of civilization collapsing. No need for software development. I think maybe a brewmaster or general wenching.

I collect spores, molds and fungus.
On a typical Friday night I am
Putting my son to bed.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll tell you a secret. I just want to go out with someone and have fun and feel all girly. If you're open to a relationship, I'm open to that. If you're not, but want to have a companion to have fun with, I'm open to that too. I want to meet new people, go to new places, try new things, and open up to possibilities.

I have serious beard envy. I like lumberjacks. Are you a pudgy bearded geek? Cause that's what I'm attracted to.

Also, I'm fat. By any definition. It's pretty proportionate, and I think sometimes I look damn sexy. Rubens would have painted me with cherubs. I went in a date the other day, and it was clear the guy thought I was too fat. Whatever, you have to find someone who turns you on. I don't have any full body pictures you can judge, because I haven't found any I like, not because I'm ashamed of it. I'm a tall, busty, curvy 44 year old. I've still got decent knees, I'm fairly active - I like going on walks, and I'm told I'm pretty flexible by certain partners, although that made me laugh - yoga teachers would disagree. So there it is. Big girl who's pretty damned comfortable with her body.

Another question that's out there - am I polyamorous? Not entirely. I don't think I specifically need more than one - although I'm seeing people as I fancy right now. Am I ok if you are? Yes - I like people who know what their heart needs.

I don't actually collect molds, spores and fungus. Bonus points for quote recognition.
You should message me if
We probably won't get along if you are a right wing conservative, hate gays, like guns, really really like rap or country, are super-religious, cannot talk about life - good and bad, watch reality shows religiously, wear lots of cologne, hate kids or cats, complain all the time, or think the Twilight movies/books were really good. Note that I said "probably." But you will never convince me that the Twilight books were good. And believe it or not, I don't like drama either. If these things are close to you too, you should message me.

If you don't have a picture, I won't respond. If you don't like yourself enough to find a picture you like, you shouldn't be dating. Plus, I assume you're married and don't have permission to date. And honestly, if you're 15-20 years younger than me, it just isn't going to happen.
