My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
[In order to correctly experience this profile, please imagine the voice of Betty White narrating the following paragraph:]

Oh God, you should have seen this one hot chick. She was totally Italian... or maybe some kinda Spanish.

[You may now resume your regular internal narration. Or maybe switch to Will Arnett. Scratch that, definitely switch to Will Arnett.]

I am animated, passionate, and prone to occasionally bursting into song. I suppose this description makes me sound a bit like a Disney princess, but I guess that's fitting, since I'm often told that's what my singing voice sounds like and I do use it to coerce woodland critters into doing my housework. In all seriousness though, if Disney created an animated feature starring a sarcastic yet (sometimes painfully) optimistic woman who's an unapologetic nerd about literature, theater, beer, and most scifi/fantasy-related things; who is fiercely compassionate and loving but who does not bullshit nor take shit from anyone; who is as playful and goofy as she is grounded; and who is at once a dreamer and a realist, that would more or less be the story of my life. And the music would have to be done by the Menken/Ashman team, none of that Frozen crap.

As much as this may imply that I'm a very girly girl (and I am, certainly), I am nobody's damsel in distress. I regularly lift heavy things, open impossible-to-open jars, and fix things when they break. I am very much an independent person who enjoys the company of people who augment my life in some way.

I said I wasn't going to turn into a bike person and then I got a bike... and now I can't really stand to be without it. No, it's not a road bike, but it's the cutest bike in the world and it suits me just fine. Unless you're one of those guys who dresses head to toe in spandex, I can probably keep up with you. *update* Then someone stole my cutest bike in the world and I went on a rampage. Eventually I got a new bike (not as cute, but functional), then had a bit of an accident and broke both bones in my right forearm. I'm a cyborg now. However, someone also stole that bike, but as fate would have it, I managed to find another version of my first bike, so I once again have the cutest bike in the world... and am still a cyborg.

Some fun facts about me: I have no middle name, although for some reason my credit card statement likes to give me the middle initial "L." I was born with the hiccups. Elaine Stritch is my spirit animal.

Oh, and I'm ESFP, if that's important to you, though honestly I have to look up what the hell it even means every few months or so. Apparently in the Harry Potter universe it makes me the Weasley twins and in the Doctor Who universe it makes me Captain Jack. I'm very fine with this.

Full disclosure, I was really tempted to delete all of the above and just put "I am Sancho," in this space.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Pinin' for the fjords.

Getting people to pay me to do all the things I love: write, edit, perform, drink and talk about beer. I am successful at all of these things sometimes, but not always, and rarely simultaneously.

I am also taking control of my creative destiny and producing, writing, and performing in several pet projects that I'm extremely excited about. If you're interested, I'll tell you about them.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- singing.
- acting.
- dancing.
- doing all of the above at the same time.
- writing.
- being a grammar Nazi.
- rants.
- quoting TV shows/movies/musicals/Shakespeare.
- super girly things (e.g., makeup, interior decorating, anything to do with aesthetics, really).
- being a good fat kid. If I am in a room with a cupcake, said cupcake has five seconds to live.
- baking, which is useful when one is, as I've mentioned, a good fat kid.
- maintaining a high level of functionality in a crisis.
- graciously admitting when I'm wrong.
- making absurdly long lists.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This question is best directed to someone who is not me.

I can venture a few guesses:

- I'm outspoken, opinionated, and do not seem to have much of a filter.
- I sometimes sing random bits of conversation.
- I'm pretty short.
- But, if I'm being really honest: Boobs. Regardless of anyone's gender or sexual preference. Boobs. I've had fairly largish boobs for a fairly longish time; I'm at peace with it.*

*For this reason, it should also be noted that I probably won't notice you noticing my boobs.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love to read, mostly fiction. I'm quite fond of most things that are somewhat fantastical in nature. Some favorite authors include: Neil Gaiman, Tom Robbins, Douglas Adams, and Christopher Moore. I like anything that uses vivid imagery, rich language, and tells a compelling story. Humor is pretty key too. I also read things that were written by women, you know, sometimes.
I'm always happy to accept book recommendations!
Now reading: The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente. It may be a children's book... but it still uses words like "sacrosanct" and "widdershins" and I do love me a good fairytale.
Just finished: Locke and Key by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez.
Super dark, beautifully illustrated comic series. I wish it had been longer.

Favorite drama: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Favorite romantic comedy: High Fidelity
Favorite comic book movie: Watchmen
Favorite black and white movie: His Girl Friday
Favorite movie-musical pre 1980: Singin' in the Rain
Favorite movie-musical post 1980: Hedwig and the Angry Inch
Favorite foreign film: Amelie
Favorite documentary: Jiro Dreams of Sushi
Favorite book-to-movie adaptation: Perks of Being a Wallflower
Favorite Mel Brooks film: Young Frankenstein
Favorite Wes Anderson film: Royal Tenenbaums
Favorite Christopher Guest film: This is Spinal Tap, which I guess is technically Rob Reiner... so if we want to be SUPER technical, then Guffman, but really... Spinal Tap.
Favorite totally ridiculous movie: Wet, Hot American Summer
Favorite eminently quotable movie: Anchorman
Favorite Muppet movie: Muppets Take Manhattan
Favorite Pixar film: Monsters Inc.
Favorite classic Disney animated film: Beauty and the Beast (though my favorite Disney prince is Philip from Sleeping Beauty, largely because he actually has a name... and a personality)
Favorite total chick flick: Pride and Prejudice
Favorite cult classic: Clue
Favorite stereotypical high school movie: 10 Things I Hate About You
Favorite quintessential 80s movie: Better Off Dead
Favorite Christmas movie: It's a Wonderful Life
I'm sure I could come up with more, but I'll spare you. I will say, however, that "Favorite horror film" does not appear here on purpose, because I really just can't do horror movies. They give me nightmares.

The TV shows I tend to follow closely are exceptionally British (Sherlock, Doctor Who, Downton Abbey, Spy, Misfits), but I do love some 30 Rock, Modern Family, Psych, South Park, Archer, and a number of other things. I don't cable, I Netflix, and I'm loving a lot of the Netflix series. Orange is the New Black is amazing, I devoured Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt in two days, and Wet, Hot American Summer in one. I just finished Bojack Horseman, which I liked a whole bunch.

I enjoy many kinds of music, though I'm not that into rap, hip hop, overly electric things, screamy things, or country, but there are usually individual artists within those genres who are exceptions. This is not going to be a really representative list in any way, but I do particularly love Radiohead, Regina Spektor, Death Cab, Jets to Brazil, and Fiona Apple. Awesome lyrics make me super happy. I will always be a sucker for a rock band with a piano (Jukebox the Ghost, Ben Folds Five), or any rock/folk band whose songs typically feature string instruments.
In case you happen to be into musical theater and these names mean anything to you, my main composer loves are Michael John LaChiusa, Sondheim, Jason Robert Brown, Kander and Ebb, and a bunch of alums of NYU's Graduate Musical Theater Writing Program whose names will soon be Broadway staples. Jeanine Tesori gets all my love and respect for the score of Fun Home.

I love food. Honestly, I don't think I could seriously date a strict vegetarian. We can be friends, I can cook some awesome things for you, but one of the things I love most about food is sharing it, and if I make some delicious chili or lamb meatballs... it's no fun at all if you won't also taste it.
Dessert might be my favorite thing, I have a sweet tooth that could kill a hippo (see above re: good fat kid). Brunch is my other favorite thing. I constantly struggle over whether I want sweet or savory for brunch; ideally both would happen (i.e., waffle sandwich). Pork—meaning all kinds of pig-based meats—is my third favorite thing (not third in order of preference, just third in the order in which I'm mentioning them). And I love, love seafood. All of it. Shellfish and fishy fish, the brinier the better. Anything on a menu with grilled octopus in it is probably going in my mouth. Also cheese is possibly the best thing ever. Possibly better than dessert.

The moral of this story is that I am terrible at picking favorites. I like a lot of things in their own rights and asking for favorites is basically asking me to compare wildly different things. Why one wins out over another is pretty arbitrary, and more often than not based on my specific mood in that moment.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Really good food
Really good music
Singing really good music
Really good books
Living near some sort of body of water
Fuzzy blankets
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- new creative projects. I'm always jotting down fodder for songs, comedy sketches, story lines, and character ideas. I think a lot about collaborators and finding new ones.

- ways in which I can improve my life. Most of this involves me making more money so that I'd be able to do more of the things I'd really like to do, like take classes and travel.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I honestly don't know what the word typical means in relation to my life, which has become something of a "standard" answer, but it's true.

Here are some options:
- out being a beer nerd.
- working.
- performing.
- rehearsing.
- out being a good fat kid.
- writing.
- out at a show.
- staying in reading or watching some movie or binge-watching some TV series.
- building a snowman to make our best friend and trying to decide on an appropriate name for him. Maybe Beowulf.
- knitting.
- any number of other things. Fun things. Totally.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The only celebrity I've ever had an erotic dream about is Trey Parker.

There was a grotto involved. I really don't know.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
any or all of the following applies to you:
- you have a blue box that is bigger on the inside and that you use to travel throughout time and space.
- you think Christmastime is great but can keep your holiday cheer in your pants until December.
- you like playing outside (biking, hiking, kayaking, tennis, sheep shearing).
- you like going for adventures (e.g., getting lost in some part of the city with no particular agenda, going out and specifically hunting down some crazy awesome thing to do, getting out of the city entirely for a day).
- you're really into beer and want to go try lots of different kinds at various cool beer bars around the city and/or brew our own, potentially using a foul-mouthed robot as a fermentation tank.
- you already brew your own beer and want to teach me.
- you play some kind of musical instrument and are interested in pursuing a collaborative musical project with someone who has never really been part of a band, but is a pretty damn good singer and a half-decent lyricist.
- you are capable of typing and prefer to type in complete, mostly grammatically correct sentences when pursuing any kind of correspondence. I abhor text speak; monosyllabic words do not warrant abbreviations.
- you live in the middleish (yeah, that's right, I just made some comment about proper grammar and then proceeded to make up a word—this is probably more indicative of my personality than anything else on here) part of Brooklyn and want more friends in your neighborhood or close by. Or, alternatively, if you want someone to explore Brooklyn with. I'm pretty fond of my borough and I'm always up for going to new places. There are approximately a shit ton I haven't been to, I'm sure.
- you were intrigued and/or entertained by any of the nonsense contained in my profile.

But also, on a serious note, please definitely message me if:
- you are emotionally (and actually) available.
- you know what you want.
- you don't mind if we don't agree on every little thing, won't then avoid the subjects upon which our opinions differ, and can understand that a healthy debate is not an argument.
- you are capable of being direct and honest and are not interested in playing ridiculous games.
