My self-summary
I'm a silly, fun-loving girl who feels like I'm in drag when I'm wearing a dress. I talk shit during movies (and t.v. shows), I punctuate correctly, and I spell out words in text messages and will do my level best not to be judge of those who don't.

I try to accumulate as many skills as I possibly can, both practical and ridiculous, because...well, what else are you going to do? Useless skill #27: manifesting parking spaces for other people.

I'm definitely a novelty-seeker. I crave new and unfamiliar experiences (except when it comes to food, weirdly) and I believe discomfort usually just means you're growing in some way.
What I’m doing with my life
Failing to finish my thesis in Cultural Anth--my official specialties are sexual and political anthropology, and I'm interested in identity politics, too. Mainly though, I work in a dive shop and get in the water as much as I can. I'm working on my dive master certification on the way to becoming an instructor.

My other main goal in life is traveling--anywhere and everywhere. I read somewhere that the world is like a book, and people who don't travel are only reading one page. Put that on my tombstone. (edit: it was St. Augustine who said it.)

Other than that, I'm usually procrastinating, making artwork, or hanging out laughing someplace. I dearly love to laugh.
I’m really good at
Conversation! When you get into a great rhythm with someone, it's like magic. I'm quick with the one-liners and comebacks.

Social deconstruction and textual analysis, though that rarely brings any boys to the yard.

Spotting nudibranchs and remembering useless information.

I'd like to think that I'd be invaluable on a desert island, or during a zombie apocalypse because of my varied and adaptable skill sets.
The first things people usually notice about me
My clever t-shirt or my raucous laughter. After that though, they notice that I'm ridiculously silly, and will totally sacrifice myself for a good joke.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books--anything and everything. I love dystopian novels like Stranger in A Strange Land and Brave New World, etc. I also love classics, regular fiction, non-fiction, ethnographies, and...I'll admit it, romance novels. Basically, I read A LOT.

Movies--Almost anything, from craptacular exploitation flicks to blockbusters and art/foreign stuff. Some favorites are Amelie (obviously), The Fifth Element, 28 Days Later, Society (if you've seen this we HAVE to be friends), Ginger Snaps AND Jennifer's Body (twins, I'd say), Firefly and Serenity, Cecile B. Demented, Leon: The Professional, Howl's Moving Castle, Bio-Dome, Planet Terror, David Lynch and Stanley Kubrick flicks. I don't watch a lot of t.v. but when I do it's usually either British (Misfits, The Mighty Boosh, Friday Night Dinner, Psychoville) or pay channel (True Blood, The Tudors, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Rome, Dexter and Deadwood, Game of Thrones). How about that season finale on Walking Dead?! My all-time favorite heroine is AEon Flux (most emphatically NOT the movie). And I kind of slay at Jeopardy!.

Music--Little bit of everything. Ska is the music of my soul, but classic rock, 90's alternative, some pop, a little underground hiphop, opera every now and again, neoswing, steampunk, dubstep. Pretty musically omnivorous.

As for food, I prefer salty/savory to sweet, but like that too. Living in San Diego has given me a profound appreciation of Cotixan food. I will put the hurt on California burrito from Lolita's.
The six things I could never do without
My contacts--I'm SOOOO blind. This would be my Achilles heel in the event of the aforementioned zombie apocalypse.

My phone--I'm always afraid I'll miss a crisis or a fun activity when I'm out of touch. Plus I have a bangin' new ringtone.

My iPod--she shall have music wherever she goes.

A book. Good for many things, not all of them reading.

My sense of humor--it gets me through anything.

My friends! You are who you love.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The nature of reality. I know that sounds pretentious, but hear me out. Essentially everything you think and experience is only ever thought or experienced by you--as far as you know. And those things only have the meaning you give them, there is no empirical, objective truth. So basically you have complete control over (and responsibility for) your own reality. Scary. And liberating.

Band names. I'm not in a band, but I have a list several pages long (edit: I'm no longer in a ska band but the breakup did furnish us with that long-awaited name. We are now officially no longer We Were Almost a Ska Band)--usually it's just combinations of words that make me giggle, and if it's too long for a band name, it becomes an album title. Here are some greats: Intercontinental Airport Bears, Handsome Kruger, Elaborate Codpiece, Occasionally A Cuspidor, The Most Haunted of Honky-Tonks. New additions: Lusty Octopus; and Vexy the Cock-Blocking Bison; and Daily Taco Violence.
On a typical Friday night I am
Night diving the Shores. Or just getting off work. Hanging out with hilarious friends and _________________. The friends are the typical part, the activities vary. A lot of times it's watching movies or good shows, often it's creating things, and having great conversations, sometimes it's surfing, rock-climbing or slacklining (though I'm a rank novice at those last three). Every now and again I can be found kayaking by moonlight, watching a burlesque or moshing at a ska show. Once I spent a Friday catching beads from a mardi gras float!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have incredibly vivid and involved dreams. Mostly nightmares. About zombies.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 25–32
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, short-term dating
You should message me if
You own or operate a large pig farm... But really, you have a rapier wit and like to duel with it. Please be smart and silly, and NOT a creeper. I especially like people who spell out words completely and engage me in interesting conversation before propositioning me. And I'm not in the market for a boyfriend, or maybe I'm in the market for several, so if you're looking for the heteronormative monogamous girl of your'll probably want to keep looking.
