-Orientation is set to Bisexual, but I guess I identify as Queer because I don't believe that stuff is binary. It's not terribly important to me.
-If you have an ounce of homophobia or transphobia in you, please, do not message me. Intersectional feminist who's still learning.
-I enjoy reading, drawing, and writing.
-Very little bothers me. I am patient and even-tempered.
-My grumpy cynicism is occasionally overshadowed by my (occasionally embarrassing) child-like wonder.
-I used to run a local Rocky Horror cast in Long Beach, and I've been a part of the community for about twelve years.
-If Space Oddity comes on, I will stop what I'm doing to clap in time to the song.
I just made a list of what I feel are my best traits, and it only included eight bullet points.
Also, I described my best traits in bullet points. Yeesh.
I'm seeing a wonderful person who means the world to me, but I'm keeping my profile up because I've made some pretty rad friends here.
Current goal is to become an advocate for children at 504/IEP meetings.
I currently work as an IT specialist for a tech company down in Irvine. It's about as exciting as it seems.
I live in a wonderful city surrounded by the most interesting area I can have the opportunity to explore. I'm trying to take in as much as possible.
I also try to go on nightly adventures, which at the end of the night often just means a walk, but on other nights it means exploring.
Telling dad jokes.
I've also had a streak of grey hair since I was 3. It's spread quite a bit since.
I probably would not have made it through high school without Kurt Vonnegut. I love F. Scott Fitzgerald and his Lost Generation. I just finished Margaret Atwood's MaddAddam trilogy and loved it. I'm currently rereading Carlos Ruiz Zafón's Cemetery of Forgotten Books trilogy.
Arrested Development. I don't watch it with other people, because I'll quote along with it and I know some people don't like that.
I also enjoy Parks and Recreation, Bob's Burgers, and 30 Rock. Archer is flawed, but I still enjoy it. I watch a lot of cartoons, like Gravity Falls and Steven Universe.
Top five films in no particular order:
-Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
-The Triplets of Belleville
Crank: High Voltage is a fever-dream of a movie. I'll do my best to convince you to watch it.
I've seen The Rocky Horror Picture Show more times than I'd care to count.
Almost anything and everything The Marx Bros. and specifically Groucho Marx have ever done.
I'll give pretty much anything a chance, but I can't guarantee I'll like it.
I saw the film Frank not too long ago and absolutely loved it.
I have a wide range of taste in music and will usually give anything a chance. Current interests include Talking Heads, Dead Kennedys, The Cramps, Dead Milkmen, The Ventures, The Beach Boys, Bryan Scary, The Smiths, The Magnetic Fields, Man...or Astro Man?, Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, Queen, Nouvelle Vague, Joy Division, Sex Pistols, Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention, and a LOT more...
Also; Weird Al, obvs.
1) A good book
2) A nice cup of coffee
3) A comfortable couch to read on
4) Art supplies
5) A second book, either in my bag or car.
6) My good luck tiki.
The time I dropped acid at Disneyland?
I work the extremes in that regard.
I can also moonwalk, but only while I'm drunk.
'Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, "In this world, Elwood, you must be" - she always called me Elwood - "In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant." Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me.'
-You're cool with beards.
