My self-summary
My personal philosophy- insofar as I have one, and insofar as I understand anything about philosophy (which I rather don't)- is that this is the only life I am going to have, and I should do things that please me. That includes analyzing the reasons behind doing things that don't please me. Practical hedonism?

Continuing with the hedonistic theme, travel is something I love to do; I'm a museum-type traveler. Car camping, cafes, historical venues are all in my repertoire; I love cities, and I love rural (and I don't mind wilderness, as long as I'm only passing through). I consider myself pretty well-traveled, and would love to become even-better-traveled: I've been to France, England, Jamaica, China, Antarctica, plus all over North America. I wish I were more adventurous, though.
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying it.
I’m really good at
Sounding like I know more about a topic than I actually do; flights of fancy; crafts; derailing my own train of thought ("...What was I just talking about?"); list-making. I'm also good at vocabulary! And Pictionary!

Seriously. You'll want to be on my team for Pictionary.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'll be honest: visually, people notice that I am what a polite person would call "rotund," "voluptuous" or if they were feeling particularly wordy, "zaftig."

If you saw me on a bus, you'd probably notice that I was knitting.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
a. I love books! My genre of choice is Fantasy, though it's not too hard to get me to read other things.
I'm currently rereading the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher.
Some of my favorite authors: Pratchett, Nix, Doyle, Jim Butcher, Patricia McKillip, Shirley Jackson, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Margaret Frazer, Ysabeau Wilce, Ben Aaronovitch.

b. My all-time favorites are Willow and Conan the Barbarian. To round it out, my lesser favorites (is that an oxymoron?) are Galaxy Quest, V for Vendetta, The Fifth Element, Moonrise Kingdom, Stranger than Fiction, and Black Cat White Cat. (There are a lot of movies I've loved, though.)

c. I will happily watch any PBS or BBC murder mystery, any rendition of Sherlock Holmes (Jeremy Brett is the best), and a slew of other witty shows.

d. I love most kinds of music, and I prefer to change it up often, to avoid band fatigue. Recent enjoyment provided by: Florence & the Machine, Garbage, Palestrina.

e. Ah, food. Can't really go wrong there; so much of it is delicious. However, I have a rather plebeian palate, so I'm often texture-oriented when in comes to nuance; foods I don't like are invariably so because of their texture.
The six things I could never do without
-Being able to travel away from- and return to- San Francisco.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Crafting, scheming, world-building.

Also, opening a yarn store.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing all the crafts.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I talk in my sleep.
You should message me if
you have something clever to say.
you have a burning question no other can answer.
you know of a local Pictionary tournament.
you are not a stranger to grammar.
