An awesome place I've visited:
Tikal, fine art museums and contemporary installations all over the country, Benque Veijo, Caye Caulker, anywhere 30ft deep, Bonaire, Cockscomb Jaguar Preserve, a butterfly farm...I couldn't choose one.
The movie I've watched the most times:
I'm not this picky!
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
I was born and raised a farmgirl in the Midwest but have relocated to Boston for my terminal degree. I enjoy the dichotomy of life that allows me to lay trout lines in the afternoon and attend a gala event in the evening. I'm close to my family, can lose myself in an oil painting for hours, and love storms in any form.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
How to cook a tarantula, how to check a hog for "thumping," where one can locate a fish maw, what it feels like to be mechanically cardioverted (Clear!) - arcane knowledge merely depends on your experiences and point of view.
For me, a first date no-no is:
asking me to teach you to kill a chicken. I said no.
What I would bring to show and tell:
As a child, I brought a bullfrog to school as large as my head. Where to find a bullfrog in Boston...
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date:
I once had my fortune read in a chicken egg...
I secretly want to be:
I don't have many secrets but if I did, this is hardly the place to address them.
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
challenged and content. I'm adventuresome but not restless and I want to be with someone that appreciates his life and is willing to seize new opportunities.
One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
I'm sure there are many things, and if you ever talk to her she will let you know.
