My self-summary
Redhead. Freckles and glasses. I'm a quirky weirdo that likes the strange, surreal and disturbing. I'm a human evolutionary biologist that does forensics and studies skeletal trauma. I dance around like a silly person to rock 'n roll, make bad jokes, wear dresses and red lipstick, have tattoos and love them, and will make you laugh. I'm smart, sassy, and nerdy with a serious wild-child streak. I come off as peppy and bubbly but don't let that fool you -- I am here to chew bubblegum and kick ass, and I may or may not be fresh out of bubblegum. I'm a bit rough around the edges and I cuss like a sailor.

I can be quite a handful, I like to think in a good way. Been called a hellion and a hellkitten on multiple occasions by different people. My biker boots have exhaust pipe scuffs, my combat boots have mosh pit scuffs, my cowboy boots have mud on them, but I can most often be found in kitten heels and other lady shoes.

Been known to blind folks with science. Also with my ridiculously pale skin (utter lack of eumelanin).

I'm versatile and safe to take out in public. I'm a favorite at fundraising galas, dinner, and cocktail parties. I know what fork to use with which course, though I prefer the kind of joints where you eat with your hands.

Sideshow, circus, and oddities are a huge part of my life. I work as an archivist, writer, and transcriber for a journal dedicated to this type of "showbiz."

I absolutely do NOT tolerate bigotry of any kind: my friends are wonderful people that encompass all walks of life. If you have an issue with people based on skin color, culture- both ethnic and chosen social affiliation, class, sexual orientation, or profession, I think you're lame and don't wanna see you. Bigotry is symptomatic of ignorance, elitism, insecurity, and immaturity.

“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes 'Awww!'”

"A hard-headed woman is a thorn in the side of a man."
What I’m doing with my life
Fixin' to get into some trouble; that is to say, I aim to misbehave.

I do research at the AMNH on human skeletal trauma and sell rockabilly dresses in Brooklyn. I'd really like the NYPD or the NYOCME to hire me so I don't have to move out of state for a grown-up job. Despite the rock 'n roller thing, I'm more Bones than Abby if you must make a tv show comparison (but please don't, they're all wrong. Especially Bones).

I used to do band management and promotion, and people seem to have sniffed that out pretty well, because I have recently found myself doing it again. Life is funny.

I work with sideshow and circus freaks and performers. I like figuring out how and why things work the way they do. I love a challenge- both intellectually and physically.

I broke the hell out of my ankle in March of 2012, and am currently still doing physical rehab and adjusting to a new set of challenges as I continue to heal, mostly surrounding the angst of not being able to wear heels as often as I'd like (though I proudly pranced around in some exactly two weeks after my last ankle surgery). As a sidenote, no more capoiera for me.

There is a serious chance I will run away and join the circus.
I’m really good at
Sassing back. Drinking brown liquor neat, especially a good bourbon. Science. Building things. Raising my eyebrows and rolling my eyes. Drinking people under the table unintentionally. Cooking and baking, though I don't do either as much as I'd like since moving to a shoebox in Manhattan. Watching sports but not following my teams very diligently. Driving cars. Explaining biology, especially human bio. Teaching people how to do simple car maintenance -- I even wrote a book on it ten years ago! Sarcasm extraordinaire. Being a rock 'n roller. Defleshing people with my eyes. Singing karaoke. Making friends and being social. Being the token weirdo. Being super rational, logical, and practical. Laughing. Silliness. Hearing dirty jokes in totally normal discourse.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall for a dame. Red hair. The tattoo on my foot also seems to get a lot of attention. I'm usually laughing or smiling, too, at the very least it's a wry smirk and raised eyebrow. I wear lots of vintage or vintage-styled dresses... I have been told by perfect strangers that I look like a punk/rockabilly version of Joan from Mad Men. I'm still reeling from the compliment... have you seen the tits on that broad?!

Though maybe not the first thing people notice, talk to me about cars and you'll see why several friends tell me I'm the real-life Mona Lisa Vito from My Cousin Vinny. Talk to me about almost anything else and I'll find a way to work human biology and science into it, which explains my other nickname, Scully.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: These days I read mostly scientific papers and books. Some general favorites, however: Slaughterhouse Five (I have a quote from this tattooed to me) -- or any Vonnegut, really, Kafka on the Shore, Wind-up Bird Chronicle, The Pyrotechnic Insanitarium, Amusing the Million, Water for Elephants, Geek Love, Chimpanzee Politics, One Hundred Years of Solitude, Watchmen, Preacher, Transmetropolitan, 100 Bullets. Brave New World. Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Dawkins, Hitchens, Murakami, Garcia-Marquez, Dostoevsky, Pushkin, Tolstoy, Vonnegut, Huxley, Bradbury, Adams. I am aware that all of these are men. What can I say? My literary taste is a shitty feminist. A crap-pile more that I can't think of right now. In a former life I was a Lit and History double major, you do the math.

Movies: The American Nightmare (the documentary), The Artist, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Bladerunner, 5th Element, Mad Max 1 & 3, Valley Girl, Wild at Heart, Natural Born Killers, Lost Highway, Gummo, Princess, Toxic Avenger, Soylent Green, Bond, Spirited Away, Cry Baby, Fifth Element, Indiana Jones, Star Wars, They Live, Repo Man, 3 Extremes, Kung-Fu Hustle, Breakin' 2, Warriors, Hardboiled -- or any old John Woo/Hong Kong action, Arsenic and Old Lace, Metropolis, Pandora's Box, Rear Window, The Thin Man, Bullitt. Most if not all: Waters, Hitchcock, Lynch, Ritchie, Woo, Tarantino, Craven, Romero, Fellini, Argento, Besson, Miike, Carpenter, Romero, Godard, Welles, Lang, Rodriguez, Raimi, Miyazaki, Watanabe, much more. I'm really not one for rom-coms, but if you INSIST I might go... I'm bringing a flask though.
Not quite movies: Fallout, Red Dead Redemption, Borderlands, Dead Space, Gears, Katamari, Guitarooman, BlazBlue, Bayonetta, LA Noir, Bulletstorm, Tekken Tekken Tekken.

(TV)Shows: Twin Peaks, Dexter, RuPaul's Drag Race, Criminal Minds, West Wing, L&O (original and SVU), Boardwalk Empire, Mad Men, Buffy, Firefly, Red Dwarf, Walking Dead, Heroes, Myth Busters. I'm waiting until after I graduate before letting myself watch: Breaking Bad, XFiles (long story there... well, not so long, actually), The Wire, all the other ones people shit their pants over.

(Theater)Shows: Guys and Dolls, Singin' in the Rain, Oklahoma, The 39 Steps... mostly golden-era musicals, but the limit is what I've seen, not what I like. I wish I made it to the theater more.

Music: The Jam, Iggy Pop, Ramones, Iron Maiden, Dio, Queen, Misfits, Danzig, Dragonforce, Motorhead, Fear, New York Dolls, Gogol Bordello, The Darkness, Red Fang, Black Tusk, Early Man, The Meatmen, Adam Ant, David Bowie, Zola Jesus, Parts & Labor, Ladytron, Blonde Redhead, Presets, Chromeo, Hot Chip, Buzzcocks, Hank Williams, Hank 3, Johnny Cash, Wanda Jackson, Dolly Parton, Tammy Wynette, Merle Haggard, Stray Cats, Necromantix, Buddy Holly, Dick Dale, Surfaris, Waylon Jennings, Cock Sparrer, The Cars, any Motown, old Reggae/Ska, Soul, Punk, Oi, Rock, Rockabilly, Psychobilly, Outlaw country, Gypsy Punk, Indie Electro, Garage, Surf Rock, etc. Indie rock is okay and some of it I even like, but it's definitely not usually my go-to.

Food: Paleo 90% of the time, the other 10% I'm eating ramen, not kidding. In general though: The delicious kind. I'm not picky. I love trying new things. I keep a list of animal species I have eaten. Used to be a veggie, and that's not happening again (mostly because soy is pretty harmful health-wise and as a monoculture -- I try to stay away from most corn and its byproducts as well, especially most corn/soy in the US), though I often eat veggie and vegan meals. I try to eat clean and ethically, but I will do some serious damage to a steak or burger. Not the biggest fan of cauliflower, un-pickled okra, or "fishy" fish like anchovies. I also cannot deal with sand in my food, which makes me wary of mussels, other bivalves, and sometimes salad (what is UP with people/restaurants not properly washing kale?! FOR REAL). Love Mexican and Southern food (despite the okra thing).
Top 5 foods/food constituents in no particular order: kale, eggplant, garlic/onions, avocado, various lettuces for salads.
I don't really like chocolate. Or sweets, in general. I'm a salt/umami girl. When I do eat them, however, it's usually in cake form... cake is good. So is Cake, but that really should be in my previous paragraph.
The six things I could never do without
Sunscreen
Tasty water
Sustenance of some sort
Good company
Science
A sense of humor

I hope I never have to go without friends, adult beverages, and the smell of engine.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Bones, anatomy, osteology, their associated pathologies, human variation.
My two cats.
My mom.
My friends.
Not being an asshole... my "moral code" if you will is "don't be a dick." So, I work on that pretty constantly.
The circus, sideshow, vaudeville, and burlesque.
Dead people and my career/educational trajectory.
Engines.
What tattoo to get next.
If my general ambivalence towards chocolate makes me a weird girl.
On a typical Friday night I am
Getting into trouble and raisin' a bit of hell.

The usual suspects include concerts, parties, bars, blahblahblah... I like going out and drinking with my buddies. If it's not a live show of some sort, I'm probably fixin' to monopolize the jukebox or hit a karaoke bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't know how to ride a bicycle... I know, in this city that's essentially a crime or something. I never learned. I grew up riding and training horses and didn't have the time to really learn. I toy with the idea of teaching myself, but doubt that it will ever happen, mostly because I am both self-conscious and terrified of concrete.

I only own 2 pairs of pants outside of a suit. They are for riding motorcycles, almost exclusively. Otherwise, I'd rather be in a dress. My motorcycle jacket, however, I wear all the time.
I’m looking for
  • Everybody
  • Ages 29–43
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends
You should message me if
You think you can keep up with me, you're not interested in wasting time-- mine or yours, i.e. you want to get the hell off the internet and see what happens over drinks or at a show. You're confident in yourself, have your life path at least somewhat figured out and are actively pursuing it. You're a good-hearted, rakish rogue. You're not a rube and you know how to pick a mark. You're a grease monkey.

You work with your hands. You like building and making things. You enjoy target shooting (always looking for a new gun-buddy). You're a greaser. You're a bit, or more than a bit, of a cowboy. You're in law enforcement and/or (para) military. You're a scientist. You're a hellraiser. At the very least you're a weirdo. Really, being a weirdo is the only requirement.

Also, in case you missed the "I study human evolution and am a scientist," the Richard Dawkins/Christopher Hitchens bits of my "please define me by my media" section, or the Details part of my profile, I am an atheist. I find religion as a cultural phenomenon interesting, but think that any of the ones practiced today are as "true" or real or relevant as Roman and Egyptian religious myths. That is to say not at all. If (a) god is important to you or in your life, you 'n I just ain't gonna work. I do, however, completely understand the cultural identity and familial importance of religious observance, and will never complain/be a pain in the ass about honoring family traditions.

If any of the above seems like a good idea, shoot me a message!
