My self-summary
90% sharp as a tack; 10% blond. Fearless. Class clown. Utterly silly. Avid scuba diver, surfer girl, and beachcomber. Has a real job.

I've lived in a lot of places over the past few decades (Japan, San Diego, New York, Los Angeles, Thailand, San Jose) and had a few careers (fashion magazine editor, entrepreneur, tiger caretaker).

NOTE to avoid wasting anyone's time: I'm not looking to be a mother of human children now or ever.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in energy efficiency for a big company. When I'm not at work, I'm at the beach, dog park, community garden, or running at Stern Grove.
I’m really good at
-Telling stories
-Finding the humor in situations
-Board games (and be warned, Taboo is my litmus test for prospective mates)
-A handful of recipes
-Choosing melons
-Knowing a little bit about a lot of things
-Parallel parking
The first things people usually notice about me
My facial expressions are often comically over-exaggerated.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: "1984" (Has any book ever been so ahead of its time?), "Holidays on Ice" by David Sedaris made me laugh so hard I squeaked, anything by Kurt Vonnegut, "The End of Faith" by Sam Harris, "Harry Potter" books, but mostly non-fiction.

Shows and movies: "Arrested Development" set the bar for situation comedies, "Frasier" has a strangely calming effect on me, "The Soup" keeps me current without actually having to watch "Honey Boo Boo," "Real Time with Bill Maher." As for movies, I love one-man-against-society action flicks like "Die Hard," "XXX," and "Gattaca." "Say Anything" and the 80's Brat Pack movies were fun as well.

Music: I like classic rock, particularly Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, Steve Miller Band, and the Beatles. And you know what? Britney Spears is pretty darn awesome too.

Food: I've visited a lot of countries and eaten a lot of things I'm not proud of (when the South Korean family at the next table invites you over and orders you a plate of live baby octopi, you eat them; that's all there is to it). I like salads. I am a cheap f-ing date. But I can find something to order on any menu. When I cook, it's fresh and simple.
The six things I could never do without
My masculine cockapoo, Emmett; the beach; soda pop; a wetsuit; Mexican food; NPR
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next vacation destination
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday nights are for me. My ritual is secret and cannot be shared in this public forum. However, on Saturday nights, I like having dinner with friends, seeing movies, or staying in with my dog and some takeout. Or anything with a theme. I'm drawn to things with themes, like 90s dance nights and gourmet mushroom festivals.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I hate showering. I do it every day because I am a member of society--and even get between the toes--but I just don't enjoy it.
You should message me if
You see your future full of local mini-adventures and far-flung travel instead of shitty diapers and PTA meetings. You're open to new experiences, destinations, and foods, but you're not so open-minded your brain fell out.
