My self-summary
The hell with summarizing myself; I'm still working on defining. I like the way an acquaintance put it: at eighteen, I figured I'd have it all figured out by the time I got through college. That didn't work out, but I decided I'd definitely get it by twenty-five. Now I'm twenty-five, and I've decided that by thirty I'll stop setting pointless, counterproductive milestone goals.
Edit: and now I'm pushin' 30. I need to update this thing...
So here I am. It's a good place, but that's no excuse not to work like hell to make it better. I've become very suspicious of "plans" for the future, instead focusing on learning and doing such as seems interesting or usefully productive. I'm here (at OKCupid) because I've always been a bit asocial and feel like working on that. And it'll be part of that "definition" thing: I was always one to date friends, and am only now figuring out that that the world outside my inner circle has charms all its own.
I'm reclaiming my native Phoenician character after a long sojourn in the frozen north; just recently it was eighty out and I was cold :-P
For the curious, the Princess username is a nod to a nickname a friend invented in reference to my love of long showers. As far as the Jim part, it's just a male name I happen to like.
I'm a bit of a whore for meaningless accomplishments, so blame OKCupid and their "profile completion percentage" for the tagging of any random thing that could be considered an interest. Next up: blathering for 500 more words in order to reach 90%.
Edit: 100%! Obsessive compulsion satisfied! At least for now...

OKCupid me dit je devrais écrire quelque choses en français... j'ai dit que je parle français au mal, et c'est la vérité!
Excusez-moi, s'il vous plaît, pour le grammaire terrible.

Y mi español es mas malo que mi francés. Lo sientos, hablantes de español.

I am bizarre, laughing, and badly dressed
What I’m doing with my life
Ensuring that it continues; so far, so good. Work consists of driving (best job ever: they pay me to drive around in someone else's truck and listen to NPR all day). I spend an inordinate amount of time with the creepily insular friend group that I love above all others. I've decided to finish out at very least a bachelor's degree... then I can figure out what to do with it. Everything else seems to be a "figure it out as I go" sort of affair: it's cliché, but my life changes too fast to make set-in-stone plans.
I’m really good at
Laughing at damn near anything.
Dancing badly, but with great energy.
Tetris.
Dunno about really good, but I loves me some sudoku and crosswords.
Making up words.
Unintentional puns.
The first things people usually notice about me
Avoiding the cop-out "you tell me":
I suppose my voice (it's rather deep) or my general lankiness of frame.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Eclectic on all counts. The books I own lean heavily toward the sci-fi/fantasy end of the spectrum: Pratchett, Spider Robinson, Weis and Hickman, and Gibson are all well-represented. Those I have read go anywhere from Dante to Plath to Heinlein to J.K. Rowling. The "all-time favorite" prize goes to Candide. I'm currently giving the Russians another shot; Dostoevsky let me down (though I think I was just too young at the time), so we'll see how Tolstoy holds up.
Movies tend to be a more catch-as-catch-can affair; I'll ignore things for years that, upon watching, join my list of absolute favorites. I seem to tend toward cute (Love Actually, Amelie), disturbing (Requiem for a Dream, The Cell) and good ol' gory fun (Alien, 28 Days Later).
My musical breadth is basically nil. I fixate on particular groups I happen to notice, missing huge swathes of the sonic landscape. As a result, my more knowledgeable friends get a lot of "Who's this?".
Food defaults to "yes": anything's worth trying and most are worth coming back back for seconds. Special favorites include good Thai, bad Mexican, and cake/brownies from a box. I'm never in Tempe anymore, and so miss the Cornish Pasty folks dearly... but I'll live, as it means I'm closer to the downtown restaurants, really good Chinese, and whatever Mr. Sushi is calling itself nowadays.
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order:
Prescription lenses (I'm so very, very blind)
Dairy products (some people are lactose intolerant... I take their rations :-P)
Phone (I remember when I didn't have or really want one. Then I felt just a little naked without. Soon they connected the damn thing to the internet. Eventually I'll just have it implanted into my skull)
A very select group of people (I'm a misanthrope when it comes to 99.9% of the population. Then there are those few for whom, in the words of one of them, I'd give or take a bullet)
... and two other things. I'm sure I'll think of them eventually.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Numbers. Colors. The reality and functionality of knowledge. How best to model social networks and/or the progression of time. Food. Full suspension. Weasels. Right and wrong and if either really exists. The opposite of black (or white). Duck confit. How green and red somehow make amber. The kitty that just wandered by. Anything and everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
No such thing :-P Dancing 'til two or swapping OSs at a friend's place (he's better with Linux than I)(and yes, we do things like that for fun. What's your point?). Talking politics. Talking to the cat. There's so much to do when you're adventurous and easily amused.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
After a decade of serial monogamy, I'm finding that polyamory is far more the way I'm wired. Still a fan of stable, committed relationships, just not exclusivity.
Edit: such statements are just asking fate to prove you wrong. Not that I'm in any way complaining :-P
I’m looking for
  • Everybody
  • Ages 25–35
  • Located anywhere
  • For new friends
You should message me if
It seems like a good idea at the time. Bonus points if you find this amusing: love of overcerebral, esoteric oddity is not yet a requirement for speaking to me, but seems to better the odds you'll actually enjoy the experience.
