I am a long-divorced skeptical-atheist-agnostic with no kids. I am routinely estimated to be 10 years younger than I am. I am either the middle child, the oldest, or an only child, depending on how you're looking at my family. I've lived in metro-Detroit my whole life, but have no intention of dying here.
I have enjoyed the Amazing Meeting, CSICon, the Mensa Annual Gathering (I'm not a member), the World Steampunk Convention, American Atheists National Convention, Detroit Anime con, ScareFest, the American Sewing Expo, and other even more unrelated conventions. (I love gatherings of like-minded people, even if I'm not of their mind.) I have spent the night in Lizzie Borden's bedroom and in the upper gallery of the Mutter Museum. I write for a local arts and culture blog and see 40+ art/music/performance shows a year. On the other hand, I've also been known to come home Friday and not leave again until Monday morning.
I sew/craft/make, and feel best when wearing something I've made. I made a genuine, but futile, effort at learning the accordion. I watch debates for fun. I recently rewrote Poe's "Annabel Lee," also just for fun.
Even mediocre improv will make me laugh myself silly, and there's nothing funnier to me than good standup. Except maybe chickens. Chickens crack me up.
If you email me just "hi how are you" I'll know you didn't read my profile, and I'm not going to respond to you. I know it's long; that's partially the point. If there isn't ONE thing in here you can't specifically respond to...
