Things I like
I like intellectual women who can hold a conversation, are strong enough to hold their ground and just crazy enough to keep me on my toes. In accordance with this, I have recently discovered that this makes me sapiosexual.
urbandictionary.com defines this as:
One who finds intelligence the most sexually attractive feature. “I want an incisive, inquisitive, insightful, irreverent mind. I want someone for whom philosophical discussion is foreplay. I want someone who sometimes makes me go ouch due to their wit and evil sense of humor. I want someone that I can reach out and touch randomly. I want someone I can cuddle with.”
Pretty darn close.
I like the rain because it means the grocery store will be less crowded.
I like it when the grocery store is full and there are long lineups at all the registers, and I find that one magical cash register with no lineup at all. Someone should name that.
I like getting into the lab and getting an experiment running with the eye tracking equipment (you can see me wearing it in the green picture).
I really like getting into the woods.
I love meeting people who aren't afraid to display their passions, regardless of how silly they think they are.
I used to have a terrible addiction to Pokémon, but I’ve been clean for almost a year now. One day at a time…
I enjoy scotch-taping garbage to my laptop.
I find it strangely exciting to listen to a girl use fancy medical terminology.
Things about me
I am a typographer.
I recently completed my masters at NSCAD University and Dalhousie University in typography and reading comprehension while teaching, practicing and consulting. I may roll my masters into a PhD, but the logistics of rolling from NSCAD to Dal are somewhat problematic. It’s either that, silviculture, or run away and join the circus. I think I’d go for tightrope walker. That, or one of the carnies that runs those crooked games you can’t possibly win.
I just discovered this awesome “just how much of a sexually deviant freak are you?” questionnaire on this site. Apparently POF is capable of providing you with instructions on how to seduce me? Check me out:
It’s better to be a freak and interesting than normal and boring. If you really want to see a freak, I dare you to ask me about fonts.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
1. Grocery shopping.
2. Allow me to cook food for you. You get to pick the meal.*
3. Go for a pint and talk (about fonts). Someplace with booths. The rest we can take from there.
4. Freestyle frisbee (http://www.truveo.com/Scott%E2%80%99s-Freestyle-Frisbee-clips-from-Legendary/id/2305843012827816035).
5. Head to head Tetris.
6. You choose…
* Be warned, while I’m a great cook, I really enjoy taking my time so you’d better bring some snacks and an extra bottle of wine while you enjoy the show. Best to bring one red and one white. That way, we’re sure to have one that matches our meal (sneaky eh?).
