My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm passionate about life, and learning, and horsies, and stuff and things. Statistically speaking I am of above-average intelligence (if that sort of thing intimidates you, I suggest you move along), I make moderately funny Your Mom/That's What She Said jokes, and... I always know where my towel is.

Above all, I'm a staunch existentialist: existence precedes essence, no inherent meaning, we create our own purpose, to do is to be, ultimate freedom = ultimate burden, etc. That line of thought directs the vast majority of my behavior.

I am in an open relationship, but more closely identify with the "free love" attitude of decades past than with the militant polyamorism here on OKC. I like to go with the flow. I get not wanting to conform to societal norms; I don't get wanting to be so rigidly defined by your relationship habits!

So come on, let's get acquainted!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I guess I could say "I teach middle school Spanish", but that somehow doesn't seem to fully convey everything my job entails. I do my part to effect social change through education.

We're about half-way into our week of staff development before school starts, and it's pretty chaotic (obviously an u nderstatement). I'm basically sleeping in my room.

I travel, volunteer, tutor, and write about the amazing tenets of atheism. Other stuff, too, like feeling a severe nostalgia for the 90s. The 1890s! (This is a half-joke; not a reference to some affinity for steampunk.)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
learning languages easily, and anything language or linguistics related is an enormous passion of mine. Currently learning Portuguese.

Knowin' stuff. People often say, "How do you know that?" I don't know. I just do.

Losing myself in the sea of "grey area" that exists between black and white dichotomies.

Making situations awkward by laughing at seemingly inappropriate times. It's a coping mechanism.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
IF people notice me, which often they don't, they see: that I'm fat, that I wear pretty dresses and head bang to Emperor, that I have large breasts. Also that I'm unusually strong for someone of my stature.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Classic murder mysteries (Poirot/Holmes), sci-fi/fantasy, historical fiction, non-fiction (philosophy, history, humanities, politics, biographies/autobiographies), and anything absurd or surreal. Currently reading Seven Life Lessons of Chaos: Timeless Wisdom from the Science of Change (F. David Peat and John Briggs).

Movies and TV: Anything related to Top Gear UK, Monty Python, That Mitchell & Webb Look, IT Crowd, QI, Saxondale, Chaser's War on Everything, Big Fat Quiz of the Year, MST3K, Jon Stewart, Bruce Campbell, Pedro Almodóvar, or Quentin Tarantino. El Topo and Don't Look Now! are great. Honestly this category is so overwhelming I can't include everything.

Music: 60s and 70s prog rock, ambient/psychill, 80s pop synth, ANYTHING 90s, black/prog/folk metal, blues, bluegrass, Texas honky tonk. Listening to a lot of Mohalepte lately.

Food: SUSHI. Mostly everything.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Chapstick
My music library
Laughter
A prefrontal cortex
Irony and absurdity
God (haha just kidding)
A will to power
The intimacy of eye contact
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how we're all made of star stuff. How vast and fucking incredible the universe is, how similar yet diverse each individual's life is.

I think a lot about the true roots of societal issues, and about how much time people waste trying to fix what they wrongly assume is the cause. I often consider how I can facilitate positive social change through my work and the way I live.

I often wonder, "What was Wenger thinking, sending Walcott on that early?" The thing about Arsenal is, they always try and walk it in.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
pissing the night away. I drink a whisky drink, I drink a vodka drink, I drink a lager drink, I drink a cider drink.

I sing the songs that remind me of the good times, I sing the songs that remind me of the best times.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been greying since 9th grade.
I was born in the wrong decade.
I spend a lot of time studying people's hands.
I do not like or drink beer. (*Update: After years of searching, I finally found a drinkable beer! Orpheus Atalanta, tart plum saison)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Oh, what the hell -- just go for it. I look forward to hearing from you!

I should note that I have this... thing for tall guys. The taller the better. Just thought I'd throw that out there.
