My self-summary
Over-educated, quirky redheaded seeks humorous smartypants/ Oxford comma enthusiast for delicious food adventures, used-book store hunting, and flights of whimsy.

I mix well with others and can be counted on to say something inappropriate during lulls in conversation. I am kind, thoughtful, and generally smell good. Sometimes I get cranky if I haven't eaten in a while, but mostly I tend towards optimism. I often come up with awesome comebacks long after they stop being relevant. I equally value alone time and people time.
What I’m doing with my life
Two parts university lecturer, one part librarian.

I'm into books.
I’m really good at
appreciating good food, good design, and good conversation.
The first things people usually notice about me
the red hair.

The six things I could never do without
books, coffee, duvet, dictionary, my bike, and tangential conversations
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Food. Books. Floorplans. The perfect orange. How time moves. My next nap.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends. Cooking spaghetti sauce. Watching 5 episodes of Torchwood back to back. Reading a book. Learning about cheese. Doing my laundry. Knitting a sweater. Thinking about where I could put another bookshelf.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I accidently shoplifted the 2011 food issue of the New Yorker.
