My self-summary
If you're looking for someone who is well balanced with a nice mixture of intelligence, humor, motivation, and wit (peppered with a bit of sarcasm, but just a wee bit!)then you'll find me unbearably irresitible. I have a hard time categorizing myself: social, geeky, quirky, smart, witty, vapid. My dictionary is never far and I love browsing through it seeing where it takes me--online searches can't compare to a bona fide, leaf-through-the-pages dictionary!

PS I'm not really vapid, I was just checking to see if you really read everything.

I am punny, light-hearted, and loyal.
What I’m doing with my life
I am on a quest to constantly improve upon myself. Whether it is learning things I don't already know (or more likely have forgotten), better understanding myself and others, exercising more and losing weight, eating better, keeping my house clean, etc, etc, etc.
I don't think anyone should be defined by their career, but if it gives insight I am a pharmacist. Also, I am recovering from a failed business attempt as a coffee shop owner. What I can say on that is I tried, I failed, and most importantly, I learned.
I’m really good at
Hmmmm, lots of stuff, but I'm not sure that they are of any great interest. For instance, logic problems...love 'em. Oh yah, I can be a real procrastinator sometimes, but I guess that's not a good thing to be good at; we can discuss this later.

And here's something else: I am really good at...well, on second thought, you'd have to get to know me to learn about that! (OK...I meant innuendo in case your mind went toward the lewd and lascivious.)

I like taking things apart and *trying* to put them back together (don't ask my mom about my saxophone...and in my defense, it did play for a while!)
The first things people usually notice about me
One would notice that I smile easily and laugh a lot. I'm extremely silly at times. And I'm told that I sport some mighty cute dimples!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I'm a lazy reader. I enjoy reading, but it takes me a long time to finish a book. For instance, I'm looking forward to finding out what happens to Goldie Locks...shhh, don't ruin the ending for me!
Movies: a varied bag. I enjoy the mindless to the soul-wrenchingly deep. Some of my favorite movies are "Airplane", "Glory", and "Six Degrees of Separation". Music: Lots. Classic rock mostly, with some glitter-glam, punk, funk, and new rock thrown in. Not so much into 80s hair bands. My favorite newer-ish band is The White Stripes. Throw in a bit of classical, bluegrass, and jazz, and that pretty much summarizes my music. Oh, and there's a category called "Filk", it's folk music with science or science fiction as the subject...I don't much like it, but I'm fascinated that it exists to the extent to have its own category.
The six things I could never do without
Love, friends, family, humor, curiosity, and gin with a big olive (OK, the olive makes seven choices, but I ask, what is gin without an olive?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
A lot! Pondering, wondering, alliteration, tabulating, scheming, planning, the future, the past, the present: it's all there all the time. And most importantly...(drum roll, please)...what I don't know I should be thinking about--that's what's great about meeting new people...they expand one's world and become provocateurs!
On a typical Friday night I am
Going to the gym, watching TV, hanging with friends, playing Scrabble, playing trivia at the bar, having a cocktail, making dinner for friends, having friends make me dinner, eating dinner that I have made for friends, eating dinner that friends have made for me. (Not all of that happens on any one Friday night; those are just some examples of what I *might* be found doing on A Friday night)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well, it pains me to share this malady. It's inherited, as my sister and sister-in-law share this burden with me. I have what is called chive-tooth. I have a set of teeth that will invariably, permanently afix green pieces of food (usually herbs or lettuce)to my front teeth. It also is known as oregano-tooth, basil-tooth, or parsley-tooth. The social impact of this condition has been staggering; the laughs, the pointing, the stares, oh the utter horror, but I have endured!
There, now it's all out on the table....full disclosure.
Oh, and also, I'm a fan of the Oxford comma!
