My self-summary
I'm loud, but apparently I'm funny and interesting and stuff, so it balances out? Also I'm not a dick. This section is very helpful. Also, I'm INFJ according to the Briggs-Myers thing, so make of that what you will.
What I’m doing with my life
Just graduated from Reed College with a BA in English, and haplessly bumbling around the Bay Area. Nothing makes tech companies happier than analyses of Mary Shelley's works, right?
I’m really good at
I'm pretty dang good at writing, at least if I care about what I'm writing about. And have time to edit. And like four other qualifiers. If you want examples, check out my awesome websites:

Also, I can climb things pretty well, I'm a good listener, and I have perfected the art of the Arnold Schwarzenegger impersonation.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm very enthusiastic, I talk a lot, and I can fly. TWO TRUTHS AND A LIE
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Hoo boy. Just FYI, all of these categories are hopelessly incomplete. WHY DO I LIKE SO MANY THINGS

Books:
Frankenstein
Classic sci-fi (Heinlein, Niven, Pournelle, Asimov, etc) with a particular focus on Forever War and Lord of Light
Going After Cacciato
Lord of the Rings
Princess Bride
A Song of Ice and Fire
Anything by Terry Pratchett, David Sedaris, or Dave Barry
Douglas Adams
Harry Potter
The Magicians

Movies:
Princess Bride
Goodfellas
Lord of the Rings
Star Wars PRE SPECIAL EDITION
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
Pacific Rim
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
Anything by Pixar (except Cars) or Hayao Miyazaki
Mulan

Lion King actually most disney things, come to think of it.
Casablanca
The Room
Birdemic: Shock and Terror, Birdemic II: The Resurrection

Shows:
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report
Coupling
Adventure Time
Stephen Universe
Gravity Falls
Doctor Who, although I'm kind of hate-watching it at this point.
Sherlock
Game of Thrones, verging on hate-watching
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

Food:
Pasta (basically any kind)
Tapas (Spanish appetizers served as a meal, quite good)
Sandwiches
Basically anything as long as it's not dripping with grease or made out of peat moss, I'm not picky
The six things I could never do without
1. Something to try to climb around on (tree, fence, wall with some sort of indent, etc)
2. The Princess Bride, the book or the movie (I need ONE of them)
3. Ears
4. Vocal Chords
5. Boba Fett
6. Blank space (THIS COULD BE YOU!!!!!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Stuff? It depends. Story ideas bounce around a lot, but also work I have to do and which pokémons I should get to make the best team ever. Rest assured that it's very rare that Boba Fett isn't in there somewhere.
On a typical Friday night I am
hanging out, either with friends or by myself, in a comfortable location (local restaurant, home, etc,) or casually exploring. Not the biggest club-goer/drink-drinker, sorry
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that I can be pretty awkward, probably because I lack experience on these sort of websites/dating in general. If I seem like a gibbering moron, consider patience?

ALSO: shocking as it is, I have been asked for a nude photo. I know! From a girl and everything! Crazy! And, unfortunately, I'm probably going to say no unless we talk first or skype or have met in person or know each others' names or some other arbitrary thing I'm going to stop typing now because I feel silly

ALSO: I have a scar on my right arm in the shape of a spoon. It's awesome.
You should message me if
If I seem interesting, if you're bored, or if you know the proper circumstances in which one should utilize Bonetti's Defense. If you have a scar shaped like a fork or knife I think it's mandatory that we meet up and have a side-by-side picture taken ASAP.

You should NOT message me if you're anti-feminist, transphobic, homophobic, or racist, but hopefully the invisible robots that keep this thing moving will be smart enough to keep us far apart anyway. Also, don't message me if you can look someone in the eye and tell them that Firefly deserved to be cancelled and mean it, because if you're capable of that you're capable of anything.
