So here's the skinny. I'm a 40 year old female with a master's in atmospheric sciences and bachelors in physics and mathematics. I live with three fish and one chameleon in a small ohana (itty-bitty Hawaii house) that I adore. I have a small garden and way too many advocado trees. I work for the National Park Service at Haleakala National Park where I do a lot of weather stuff, which isn't exactly my job but I do it anyway. I've also worked at Yellowstone and Devil's Tower. I spent three years living in Uganda and one in Germany. I do not own a tv and read a lot. I mostly love to make stuff. I spend most of my time doing needlework: crochet and lotsa embroidery. I lean more towards geek than cute. Do a lot of embroidery patterns from the 15 and 1600's. I wrote and illustrated a very small children's book describing food webs. Hm. Is that enough?
Anything by Christopher Moore and Michael Ende. I subscribe to Make and Craft magazines.
Amusing music. Also I am learning to play the Ukulele.
Watch way too much Nova. Sorry, but I do likes the geekery. Stuff by Joss Whedon. This is embarassing.
Embroidery, crochet, electronics, papercutting, making furniture, murals.
Places I haven't been.
Ocean creatures. Fortunately I live in Hawaii, and they are readily available.
Lizards. Especially Chameleons. Chameleons are the most amazing things that have ever existed.
Making things myself instead of paying for them. Complaining about my co-workers, cuz they're idiots. No, honestly. My boss threw away my lunch this afternoon. Going to libraries. Going to other libraries. Thrift shops.

Originally I wanted to live on every continent on earth. I have recently changed this to having dental work done on every continent on earth. I know people who've lived everywhere, but I've never met anyone who's gone to the dentist everywhere.And I've got four continents down! Three more to go! Also I want to own a house.
Critters. Weirdness. Geek related stuff. Anything from where you are. Vintage stuff.
Cute things. Feminine things. Things with strong smells. Nuts (got me some allergies). Religous (however you define it) stuff. New age stuff.
