I am kind, and take after my grandma in that I like to make people feel at home and full of snacks.
When I was 4, I pretended to speak in tongues (I was forced to go to a church like "Jesus Camp" or "Red State"), and everyone believed me, then I laughed about it, then got beat with a paddle, then I laughed even louder, then I got really mad that no one else thought it was funny. THIS is a theme in my life.
When people ask "what's your favorite memory," I almost always think of the time I was a kid and saw a very fat woman fall down an escalator at the mall. It was beautiful.
I make it a priority to entertain myself, and I am easily entertained, but I am even more entertained when I'm with people who find me entertaining/ who I am entertained by.
I try my best to treat life as a joke. I will smile and laugh a lot until I die (then smile and laugh more when I find out what actually happens :D). This is because...
I almost was a NeuroPsychologist, but I'm really awful at pretending to be professional with adults (I prefer the company of animals, children, and/or the developmentally disabled best!), not to mention studying psychologically-abused children fo
I make cartoons. It'd help if you did too so we could do it together (I suppose?), but not really, so long as you understand that it takes a lot of time since they have not yet invented a usb/firewire for insertion into human brains (stupid, lazy evolution!).
I am especially bad at being around pretentious people who talk down at/about others who are different in an attempt to build themselves up.
When not animating, I like to leave the house and get lost on purpose. I like to bring my sketchbook and make up stories about the people sitting around me as I draw them (it's an interactive game. you can play too! The same cannot be said for people who sit liking instagram pics on their iphones).
I will eat anything twice.
I come from a long line of professional, working-class drunks. Though not an alcoholic myself, I do really enjoy being with people who get loud and laughy once in a while.
Sometimes, I like to spin in circles in outdoor locations, then collapse and spaaace out (ideally on the ground or in water).
Sometimes I try to make up new dances in front of the mirror to entertain myself (sometimes = daily). I'd like to dance with other people too (hint! hint!), especially those who do not take it seriously (ESPECIALLY 50's sock-hop, mashed potato, shoulder-shimmy twists!!!).
I love to talk for long periods of time in accents or wacky voices in hopes that someone else will play with me (ex: I saw a bumper sticker that read "My Chiiiild is an Accelerated Reeeader at Taft Elementary School" and spent the next 15 minutes repeating it in the most pretentious Mom voice I could muster." If this sounds annoying, you will hate me.)
I will sing for you if you want. I will sing for you if you don't want. Sometimes silly singing, sometimes smooooth. I also like those schoolyard paddy-cake hand-clap games the black girls play. FUNNNN!
Mainly, I just want to play. I laugh at weddings, funerals, churches, and places where people are dressed in polyester do fancypantsy business transactions and shake my hand like a manly man.
I prefer to live in a place like Pee-Wee's Playhouse. I like to draw on walls. I also like walk-in closets that are portals to alternate dimensions.
I've been called weird/retarded a lot, whatever that means (that being "normal" also means having low self-esteem and chronic social anxiety?).
I like to "make fun." If you are easily offended, you will call me an asshole. If you call me an asshole, it probably means you have a temper that you cannot control, and take life too seriously.
We won't get along unless you get the joke.
I want the last word I say before I die to be "Wheeeeee!"
or.. "The dishes are done, man" (though this makes for a better suicide note).
