Hi there! Thanks for stopping by! I thought I'd give this internet dating thing another shot. And I'm a pretty fantastic girl, so I think you all are going to want to date me. A lot :) Still reading? Excellent. Here's a little more about me:
I am physically incapable of making pancakes. I honestly don't know what I'm doing wrong.
I realized that I was getting old when Wheel of Fortune came on TV and didn't change the channel.
I do science, and then write reports about the science and then I review the science to ensure the science has been carried out according to internal and external standards and regulations. Are you riveted??
I don't care what anyone says, but Batman Forever is the best Batman movie.
My idea of the outdoors is getting drunk on a patio. (I'll hike but I'd really prefer not to camp).
My iPod is a source of deep personal shame.
Your Grind time doesn't impress me.
I like to travel/vacation as much as time and money will allow. I went to New York and Chicago recently, and am planning a Massachusetts-Connecticut-Washington-Virginia trip next year. I'm really into America right now, in general. I did do the Europe backpack thing a few years - oh god 12 years - ago and I lived in the attic of a 600 year-old hotel in England for a summer.
I have two little tattoos. I wanted to try and make that sound scandalous, but it's really not!
My love of the Chicago Blackhawks is real and it's spectacular. But I can handle your Canucks problem, if you have one.
I like to make up words. Who doesn't appreciate a good portmanteau?
If you have giant, shiny angel wings on your shirt, or if your jeans have more embellishment than mine, this probably isn't going to work out.
I like to read books about sexy vampires. And I feel shame about this.
I like to watch TV shows about compulsive hoarding because it makes me feel better about not putting away the laundry.
If a song has a drumline in it, I will love it.
If a movie has a swordfight in it, I will love it.
I could ramble on, but then we'd have no ice breakers left on our first date. And one should keep some of one’s anecdotes secret, as one does not want to be a dreadful bore at c*cktail parties. And if I send you a message and all I say is "Hi :-)", please forgive my lack of creativity. It was probably the most terrifying thing I did that day.

See how long we can hang out at Ikea without getting kicked out.
