My self-summary
I have an affinity for cheesy jokes and vintage (meaning 80's) pop culture references. This might explain why I love the show Psych so much.

I know 3 words of nearly every song in the universe. More often than not, I ONLY know 3 words, but I will doo doo doo the rest of the song like a champ.

I can whistle ridiculously well. It's a skill I have. It's on my resume.

I watched Home Alone 2 the other day, and was just as amused by it now as I was when I was 10. In that regard, I doubt I will ever grow up. Who would want to? If you can't laugh at bad guys getting set on fire and hit with bricks by a kid, you are clearly an automaton.

I also like being outdoors -- hiking, exploring new places, drinking outdoors (sometimes all at the same time).

I have a tendency to be snarky, but amusingly so...at least I like to think so.

Friends and family are very important parts of my life. I like to invite them over, and they seem to enjoy my cooking and baking (and my company), since they are willing to walk up the stairs to my apt. Complimenting my culinary skills and laughing at my jokes are surefire ways to win my affection, and a plate of cookies. Making me laugh earns you a cake.

What am I looking for? I suppose just someone with whom I can laugh. All the cliché stuff too, but mostly just the ability to laugh together. I think that is the solution to most of life's problems.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying my best.

Also, let's all admit the real reason we're here, to find teammates for Zombiepocalypse. My Glock 9 skills bring all the (zombie)boys to the (grave)yard.
I’m really good at
cooking/baking. This is not the place for modesty, and I refuse to be modest about my one super power. I am awesome at it. Simply awesome.

Useless trivia, no, really, useless... why would I ever need to know that Peter Cetera sang that song...I would not, and now that space in my brain is forever taken up with Peter Cetera, when I could have been coming up with the cure for cancer. Damn you, mystery that is the human brain, damn you.

Kicking ass and taking names. Seriously... I have a list (ie #37 John Smith - judo chopped!)

Bad at:
Lying, I blush and giggle and generally become a Japanese schoolgirl.

Grace, I am a major klutz and end up with unidentified injuries all the time. Hey, those walls are sneaky!!! Always jumping up out of nowhere... Think of it this way, if you are into schadenfreude, we will be great friends because I will provide an endless source of entertainment.

Brevity, being concise is not my strong suit, if you couldn't tell.
The first things people usually notice about me
that I am a master of karate and friendship...for everyone.

Oh, I like absolutely everything, and even more so if its live. I was raised on The Cure, and will count them among my favorites to this day. My current top plays are Iron and Wine, a bunch of bluegrass (including some Robert Plant and Allison Krauss duets which are phenomenal), Mumford and Sons, Led Zeppelin, Otis Redding, Radiohead, Heart, Johnny Cash, and Arcade Fire. So a bit all over the place, I guess. And I love to be introduced to new stuff that's good.

things on sticks, Rioja!!, peanut butter, bourbon, watching videos of people falling down, bouncey castles...you know...the usual
Six things I could never do without
-My family and friends
-google - what did I ever do without it?
-water - boring I know, but I love water, in its many and varied forms and vessels. Ice is awesome; steam is handy; classic water is beautiful and refreshing. You can drink it. You can swim in it. You can skate on it. You can power things with it. You can clean things with it. You can cut things with it. It gives life. Does it get any better?
-laughter - without it, what's the point?
-and now my Kindle
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how the heck that Möbius strip thing works...
On a typical Friday night I am
Building a fort out of couch cushions.

Talking smack all over the neighborhood.

Drinking that whiskey, telling white lies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
that I have read Dune...and liked it. Yes, I am an absolute geek. And a Gleek.
You should message me if
...you find me amusing, chances are we will get along. If you don't, well...jealous!!!

...you have any interest in doing something interesting when we are not at work. I've been hoping to find someone who wants to go hiking on a mild day. Or a new concert buddy.

...you have skills with a fiddle and are willing to teach me, or a mandolin, or drums, ah anything, I want to have musical skill (if not talent).

...you have constructive criticism...or edits. An extra set of eyes is always welcome in the fight for proper grammar. It's war out they're/their/there, people. Sooooo punny.
The two of us
