Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
According to my personality thing, I am grossly arrogant compared
to the general populace so I really just like talking about how
great I am.
Update: Now that it does not reflect my incredible arrogance, it is
Since Myers-Briggs seems to be popular, I'm a BAMF.
I realized later that I should have picked a lachrymator as a
I still remember The Spark.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been trying to get my friend to go to an Owl City concert so I
can make fun of him for going to an Owl City concert. To be fair,
people at my workplace were reminiscing about Dookie, so I asked
him if he liked Green Day. He told me that he really liked American
Idiot. He totally has it coming.
I like to get drunk and send insulting lowball offers to people on
In my work life, I spend my life wishing that the AMA Manual of
Style didn't suggest thin space characters that aren't included in
Word and worrying about significant figures.
I was looking through an abandoned laptop and found a folder named
"Pornography". It was full of PDFs of cell signaling
I also once wanted longingly to browse Petfinder while watching
something on my day-to-day laptop so I booted up the abandoned
laptop to find that the browser windows that I left open months
earlier were also Petfinder.
The construction of "wanted longingly to browse Petfinder" bothers
me, but I'm not going to split an infinitive.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
One of my hobbies is making pets love me more than they love their
Pocket sand! Sh-sh-sha!
Crafting unappealing OKCupid profiles.

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
"[S]he was restless, sly, casually abusive, and almost always
willing to cut a deal. [S]he could yell at you and eat a brownie
off your plate at the same time, and a phone call from [her] might
involve thirty seconds of profanity followed by a cooed “love you”
and a suddenly dead line.”
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am illiterate.
Look, I am not going to bother listing all media ever consumed,
with at least part of the list being required high school reading.
Rest assured that I probably have better taste than you.
I was part of a Weezer cover band which involved drinking, googled
tabs, and belting Pinkerton out as loud as possible. I plan to pick
up ukulele so I can contribute something more than cheap beer. As
soon as I remember my ebay password.
Update: I got my ukulele, and I am terrible.
Update #2: I sold it for 2/3 the original cost because I was too
I consume an absolutely disgusting amount of TV because it's
background noise to whatever I'm doing. I don't pay very much
attention. As a result, I watch less serious, involved shows than
I'd like. One time I had to rewatch an episode four times to have
any idea what was going on because I was busy making fridge
There is a positive correlation between how much I hate you and how
much you like The Unbearable Lightness of Being.
My favorite kinds of dogs have achondroplasia.
I learned everything I know from Loveline.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Online shopping. I buy my laundry detergent and toothpaste on
Amazon. The lab safety manager had to email me because I had so
many packages that they were starting to block the halls and became
A good chef's knife.
Ice cream. Ice cream? Ice cream!
My smartphone. It's a great way to completely ignore someone in a
social situation or to live tweet intercourse.
Salt. I regularly carry little packets in my purse.
Ghosts. The idea of ghosts. The idea of goats. Actual goats.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I want a dog.
I am planning to buy glasses, and in preparation I googled around
which led me to a Flickr group called "Asian Girls in Glasses" that
somehow includes photos of white women, elderly Asian women, and
normal Asian girls just doing life things on the street.
I want a dog!
Compared to Andrea Dworkin, I hate men twice as much, and I'm half
I am also incredibly vain. I would love to raise a clone of myself
because I was an exceptionally cute baby.
Pretty much everything about Soylent offends me.
There is a dating sim video game where you are a human girl who
dates pigeons that I'd really like to play. Fuckin' sexy pigeons,
strutting around with their sexy beaks and shit.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Drinking Malort while some dude tries to talk to me about lasers.
Eating citrus fruits.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once posted a Craigslist missed connection and actually got a
response. He turned out to be (1) vegan, (2) addicted to ellipses,
(3) a crackpot anti-establishment "artist". But he had some really
hot arm tattoos.
I keep my toenails painted so regularly that my unvarnished feet
look kinda weird to me.
I have a vagina. Shhhhhhhhh. ~*secrets*~
I once installed an app to keep me from drunk dialing or texting by
requiring me to do a math problem before unlocking. The result was
a lot of drunk voice messages about how good I am at math.
I get way too many messages given my personality, and I get way too
few messages given my looks.
But really, I'm just your sweet everyday girl. Down to earth and
all that. Just like you, I put on my bra one boob at a time. Haha
just kidding they fell off.
Don't worry, I'm this overly verbose in real life too!
