My self-summary
Let me just take a big breath and blurt all this out there. There's a lot to me; I can only hope to give a good snapshot.

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 youngest, 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. (Where next?) 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 night and not leave again until Monday morning.

I have an opinion about most things — often, more than one opinion — but don't always offer it because I think most people don't actually care. This makes me seem quiet. But trust me, if you ask, I'll go on...

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'm a crack shot. I watch debates for fun. I wrote my own version of 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.

BOOM.
What I’m doing with my life
I am working at a great little textbook publisher as a designer/production artist, plus weekend retail work at one of my favorite stores.

...which isn't really what this question means to ME, but I think it's probably what it means literally.

What I'm DOING with my life is living pragmatically, sometimes joyfully, always nestled in the warm embrace of reality.
I’m really good at
Laughing really hard, much to people's surprise. (People tend to think I'm quite serious.)
The first things people usually notice about me
The piercing intensity of my gaze. Wait, I can be even worse than that. The world-weariness of my affect, interrupted by my tiny, child-like grin. Seriously, I don't know, probably my green eyes. And big hooters.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I prefer documentaries to fiction, and listen to a load of podcasts (mostly science/skepticism/comedy) when I'm not listening to Pandora. Happy to swap stations.

For those partial to lists:
Favorite movie: "A Clockwork Orange"
Favorite band: Buzzcocks
Favorite author: EA Poe
Favorite book: "Vampires, Burial, and Death" by Paul Barber
Favorite city I wouldn't want to live in: New Orleans
Favorite thing to say: "Thanks, I made it myself."
Favorite thing to hear: "I'll take care of it."
Favorite sensation: Good ol' foot massage
Favorite thing for you to have in your hands when I open my front door: Jagermeister
The six things I could never do without
Just give me six good learning opportunities.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to understand people, and how to help people understand me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a bones-deep prejudice against long-haired men.
