I love lots and lots of art -- making it and experiencing other
people's. I aim to be a rigorously honest, passionate, fearless
person who values hard work, humility, kindness, openness, and drag
queen style eccentricity. My fave filmmakers are pedro almodovar,
werner herzog, and john waters. I'm a liberal who believes
government is here to help people help themselves -- therefore I
believe in affordable quality education and healthcare for all. I
don't own a TV, but I love watching trash on youtbe like fat cats
eating steak in Japan. I don't exercise, drink booze, or smoke so I
won't be your bud in those areas although I respect and don't mind
if you enjoy doing that stuff. Except chain smoking because you're
killing me, in a second-hand sort of way. I'll compromise and ride
a bike sometimes, lol. Oh yeah, live jazz, an exhibit, a slam
poetry reading, a play, a movie, and conversations late into the
night make me happy. I'd prefer a fun dinner with good friends to
partying it up at a big anonymous shin dig.
What I’m doing with my life
I’m really good at
smiling, smirking, sort of frowning

Eccentric, Avant-garde, Documentaries, and REALLY bad ones), Art
Exhibits, Plays, Books, Live Performances (Flamenco, Tango, etc).
Discussing Art, Philosophy, Spirituality, Politics, & Useless
Trash from the warm comfiness of home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a mushy teddy bear despite the fact that I rarely smile in
pictures. There's nothing "hard-edged" about my personality. Sorry.
I'm a proud dork! ;p
You should message me if
You're a kind, honest, brazen, and feminine woman who likes to make
out & watch movies.
That's pretty much all I've got for now. Look forward to meeting
