Breakfast is good any time of day. I love to cook and tend to think with my stomach. Movie quotes and song lyrics plague me, therefore, I have a tendency to break into song or quotes when a spark in conversation triggers a lyric or line from a movie. I love to make people laugh and appreciate a sense of humor in others. I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl, but I'm not afraid to dress up when the occasion calls for it.
Passions include, but are not limited to, body/energy work, photography, writing, people watching (NOT the stalker variety), movies/television (I'm usually the go-to person for all things entertainment), 80s music, and food. While I am a people person, I generally shy away from crowded places. A typical night for me is relaxing at home or hanging out with friends. I'm not much of a barfly or club hopper. I like relatively quiet environments where I can actually hold a conversation.
My taste in music is quite diverse. I like most anything from Nine Inch Nails to Enya to Garth Brooks. Some of my key artists, though, are Ben Folds (and when he was with the Five), Ani Difranco, Heart, Patty Griffin, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Adele, Aretha, Cake...ehh, the list goes on. The only kinds of music I don't particularly care for are reggae and death metal (...and maybe gansta rap).
I love to read but seem to be experiencing a bit of lull at the moment. When I do pick up a book, I lean more toward comedic fiction, but I like all genres. Favorite authors include Tim Sandlin, Neil Gaiman (any of his work, but especially The Sandman graphic novels and American Gods), David Sedaris, and Pat Conroy.
I've been trying to think of additional information I can write about myself and "who I'm looking for," when really, most everything else is the kind of thing that comes out in conversation over time as I get to know someone. I will say open-mindedness is very important. While it would be nice to meet that special someone, there has to be a connection. If the chemistry's not there, then I'm happy knowing I've at least expanded my circle of friends. Austin only, please.
