My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a graduate student at UC Davis. I spend a fair amount of time in the Greater Sacramento area as well as the bay area.

I aspire to be an infinite heat sink. One of my greatest pleasures is being covered in a pile of hot, clean laundry straight from the dryer. Someday, I hope that I will benefit humanity by being part of a fantastic super-computer. Maybe I'll have to settle for giving massages.

I grew up in New York and graduated from its suicide-fabled land grant institution. Most of my closest friends are physicists, although I spend most of my own time in the humanities. After college, I lived in Boston for a few years and tortured law students for a living. Don't take that too literally. Law students are tons of fun. Being the ABA's mercenary let me entertain folks on weekends and take up a six month gig at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.

I currently live in the bay-ish area, although I often give in to my wanderlust. I recently obtained a master's degree in library science and I'm working on obtaining the matching Juris Doctor from UCD. I'm also a certified massage therapist in California, although I rarely practice professionally these days.


Since I have now received over thirty messages regarding one of my pictures, I'll state something about it in this profile.

No, they are not tattoos. :)

For those who have seen the pictures of four girls together with physics equations on their back: those pictures are unedited from a poster shoot, and they weren't supposed to be used or sold outside a specific audience. The pictures were fodder for what was originally a limited edition poster engineered by aphysicist28. This was waaay back when all the folks involved were in school together. After the photographer decided to sell his raw photography on cafepress (as physchicks2), the original cafepress link became public. If you really enjoy the picture, you can pick up the poster at and be happy. //That ends what I have to say.

I am inquisitive, innovative, and impractical

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

Last episode: "Kate gets paid to be herself." I aim to continue this foray into occupational bliss.

I do what I can, and that turns out to be pretty awesome. For instance, I once grabbed a temporary gig in Minnesota where I disassembled a 26 ton ultra high vacuum chamber. You don't have the clearance for additional information, citizen.

I once considered applying to ethnomusicology graduate programs, but I have yet to be convinced that the advancement of ethnomusicology will rely on the Ivory Tower in the next couple of decades. I'm content to be a layman these days, although you'll still see me at academic conferences on the topic.

Instead, I chose to pursue a dual MLIS/JD. I completed the former degree a few years ago and I am currently working on the latter. I'm a little bit of an information retrieval geek, and I like to tinker with HCI and design, but I've found that I enjoy reference work and education the most. I'm particularly interested in community education on legal issues and dispute resolution. We'll see what the next few years bring, but in the meantime, I hope to have the time to work a little reference and continue to teach information literacy.

I used to practice massage therapy in Massachusetts. I love massage, but it has not been my income source for some years.

I like to perform. My last real music job was a six month gig at the Boston MFA with the Boston Village Gamelan. We were the centerpiece of the Sounds of the Silk Road exhibit, and performed on a gamelan that was forged around 1840. I've played in many gamelans since then, and I currently play with UCD's Sundanese gamelan.

I hope to spend some semi-serious time in Indonesia after law school. I have spent some not-so-serious time all over the US, around Eastern Canada, hiking through Germany, sightseeing throughout Vietnam, and looking at archeological digs in Tabasco and Chiapas, Mexico.

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
thinking about academic topics that are irrelevant to almost any conversation at hand, overanalyzing entertainment, touch, patience, interpreting situations to fit my worldview, and getting stuck in those plastic six-pack rings. I unintentionally answer the telephone like The Producers' Ulla and receive praise rather than a pink slip. I enjoy coming up with unlikely schemes, if only to see 1 in 50 implemented. I love coming up with feasible solutions and actually see people benefit from them. I can rock out on the right instruments. I'm at home in library stacks. I argue over editing. I like to skank. I'm competent at duct taping cardboard ninjas to office ceilings.

Taking out the request for wikiedits is not a suitable wikiedit, lightbulbjack1. ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
A sample from each category: (a) The Stars My Destination by Alfred Bester (b) Die Blechtrommel (The Tin Drum) (c) Big Mama Thornton (d) Gudeg Yogya and some Teh Botol Sosro, if you have any.

Mmm, and I guess I'm required to mention Eduardo Galeano's The Book of Embraces. I've lent it out so many times that I forget it's one of my favorites. I never see it around my house.

A sample of what I love to hate: (a) Faulkner's works (b) Requiem for a Dream (although I would like to see what Darren Aronofsky does with Lone Wolf and Cub) (c) Wagner. This often includes music/productions that can be considered Wagnerian (d) red meat (includes cow, sheep, and ox), along with any of my other alleged food allergies
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(1) my legs (2) books (3) really horrible books that I pass off to other people (4) pants (5) the OED (I'll let this slide into Grove Music as well) (6) water (And no, I'm not just saying that to be snarky. If you've spent time backpacking in a desert, you probably know what I mean. The Grand Canyon really helps you appreciate the stuff.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I prefer the old 'put your brain into someone else's body' question, and my answer to said old question is: Hunter Ripley Rawlings III. Then I'd be inhabiting his body, and that would lead to all sorts of awesome. Cornell, bow to his height and his presidential whacking mace!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
enjoying that I don't have a typical Friday night. There's a lot going on in the bay area, and I appreciate how easy it is for me to go out or stay in with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My favorite sandwich might be the North Baker, which is a hot pizza sub on toasted garlic bread that comes topped with mustard, sour cream & onion potato chips, and lettuce. I now want to try mustard on incongruent foods every so often.

Most people are going to see me as female and bisexual. I identify as these. I also identify as genderqueerpansexual, and polyamorous, even though I'm in a monogamous relationship. I don't properly care for my labels. ^_^
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Harvard's goalie is a black hole.

You'd like a new friend. I am happy to be messaged about friendship and unromantic things! Please do so!

You may be disappointed if you message me for a date. I am in a monogamous relationship.

You may not want to message me if you'll be mortally offended if I don't respond. OKC is only a side interest of mine. I don't habitually check for messages when I log in. Sometimes I respond to messages some months after they've been sent.

You'll generally have a better chance of getting a response if it involves some group meeting or party outside of OKC. I always prefer hanging out in person than on the internet. It is much simpler for me to respond to a stranger on the internet regarding a concert next weekend than it is to argue Debussy vs. Wagner. Save the debate for in-person meetings. ^_^

Remember: I'm in law school. I have to put the books down long enough to respond to messages and meet up outside of school. This is not a given.
