Currently residing in Chicago, working as a laboratory badass at one of the best hospitals in the nation.
I am a reader. My reading interests don't just include sci-fi. I get onto author jags where I only want to read one author until I'm sick of them or I can't afford any more books. At that point, I delve into the boxes of books I have stolen from my dad (it's like borrowing from a library, only my dad doesn't expect the books back), as we have very similar reading interests.
I sing. Not professionally, but I enjoy singing. People say I do it well. I am highly musically diverse.
I don't drink often, and I really don't enjoy going to bars unless there's a specific reason or the bar is unique in some way (like my friend's whiskey bar back home). I love the arts, especially dance. In fact, I like to dance. I'm not the world's greatest dancer, but I like to anyway.
Also, you should know that I have a penchant for really, really bad films. I love good films, but love me, love my love of stupid movies like "Bring It On" (the entire series), "Step Up," and others.
I'm a fantastic reader and I'm quite good at being a geek.
I'm incredible at learning languages.
I can micropipette like a fiend, and can whip up a batch of sterile TSA plates in no time flat.
Honestly, I have no idea. Unless you make it stupidly obvious to me, I have no idea what you're noticing.
Books: I'd have to go with authors. Jim Butcher, Christopher Moore, Henry Rollins, Greg Bear, Jasper Fforde, Philip K. Dick, Robert Heinlein, anything sci-fi, not so much fantasy . .. and I'll read nonfiction when it catches my eye. My nonfiction choices are subject to my whim when I'm at the bookstore.
Music, recently: MIA, Mumford and Sons, Tool, Gogol Bordello, Nine Inch Nails, Trevor Hall, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Michael Franti and Spearhead.
Introduce me to your favorite restaurant in Chicago.
Yarn, crochet hooks, knitting needles. All three at once. I have mad Granny-Arts skills.
Lip balm with pronounceable ingredients.
It would be nice if, when you message me, you made at least a minimal effort to utilize the English language in a manner that isn't butchery.
