My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a tall, broad geek girl, who has adopted a semi-gothic style of dress, all blacks and bits of silver.

I'm a rationalist and an atheist; those are not the same thing, though they are often found together. Skepticism and critical thinking are very important to me; I try very hard to live in the world that's actually there.

I'm a Newfoundlander by birth who moved to Vancouver area in April 2005; no, I don't have 'the accent', though I can perform it (and myriad others) if need be.

I love games of all flavors (including role-playing games) and intelligent conversation. I've managed to be in the news a few times for something I did - things which were considered interesting, not criminal.

I look more imposing than I really am or want to be. Truth to tell, I love to cuddle and kiss and am much happier being a lover than a fighter, though I will do whatever it takes to defend my friends, family, or principles. On the upside, looking intimidating helps me land interesting auditions, so there's something to be said for it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a polymath, or at least try to be one.

A software developer by (deeply unwanted) trade, my REAL interests lie in entertainment. So I am constantly working on my own side projects, with the smaller ones being little video games and board games.

The big ones can go on for years, like the Firefly fan-film project I started and had been involved in for years. I love filmmaking and making TV more than almost anything. I'm currently tinkering with putting together pitch packages for some TV shows I'm developing.

I'm working on getting into acting in a big way - and this has started to pay off. A computer game I did voices for was released in June 2014. I may yet be able to make this my career!

I've been working on writing a novel for the last couple of years, though at my rate of progress, I might be abusing the word "working" there. Lately I've been more focused on teleplays and screenplays.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Acting! Yay!
Making and playing board games.
Filking! Oh, I write song parodies all the time! Lately I've been moving away from filk and into original songwriting
Singing, in the right environments. Karaoke, for example, averaging once a week now!
Inventing horrible-but-effective ways to prepare food, with such dishes as Faux Pho, Holiday Inn Salad, and Custard Sculpture.
Screenwriting, for which I long to sink my teeth into a serious project.
Fighting games, in which I kick so much ass I have to have my shoes specially cleaned afterwards.
Being a source of and sponge for trivia - I have been called Wikipedia by friends.

Listening and counseling - as an amateur.

And of course programming, whee.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
There's a lot of me - not just physically. People remember me for the way I make them think and laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

So many books, so many shows! I love fantasy, science fiction, supernatural, AND mysteries, so there's no shortage of things I love to read and watch! There is above all one thing I demand in all media, and that is cleverness.

My favorite authors include Arthur Conan Doyle, Stephen King, Terry Brooks (Magic Kingdom, not Shannara), Bill Watterson, Douglas Adams, Christopher Moore, and Robert Heinlein; their lord and master is Terry Pratchett - I extra crispy love Discworld. Lately I have also been supremely enjoying the work of Richard Roberts; I think most people haven't heard of him yet, but if you like any kind of urban mythology stories (eg. Gaiman) and don't read his books you are seriously missing out.

I used to like Harry Potter before the last book; still like Hogwarts as a setting. Funny thing, I used to be a Ravenclaw for years but wound up a Hufflepuff.

For comics/graphic novels, though, I simply cannot get enough of Neil Gaiman, and I do love American Gods. Good Omens is the leading contender for my favorite book of all time.

Movies... I love most of what Tim Burton has been involved with, and admit Quentin Tarantino makes a few guilty pleasures. I absolutely loved The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, even though it seems like M. Night Shyamalan only had two really good movies in him. Sneakers, Office Space, Stardust, and Fight Club are among my favorites of all time and stand as one-offs, as do The Shawshank Redemption, The Princess Bride, and A Beautiful Mind.

Also anime! Studio Ghibli is fantastic, I love the alien yet understandable settings in Hayao Miyazaki's movies, especially Spirited Away, Laputa: Castle in the Sky, and Nausicaä. Satoshi Kon also usually tickles my enjoyment bone. And the beautiful short series Haibane Renmei touched me in ways I never expected.

For TV, I mostly watch police procedurals: all flavors of Law and Order, Waking the Dead, and CSI until Grissom left. My very favorites are NCIS and Criminal Minds - Abby and Penelope are sort of my role models, hee - and from the opposite perspective, Breaking Bad. I also like the series Supernatural, and the occasional miniseries like Tin Man.

My grand high favorite TV show of all time used to be Firefly, so of course I also liked the movie Serenity. Joss Whedon is my master now, may all television be created in His divine image... or failing that, like Monty Python.

... used to be, because in the last few months, I'm sorry to admit, I have come down with a terrible terrible case of My Little Pony:Friendship is Magic. The doctors think it might be terminal.

Music? Eclectic and random. Lots of comedy. My favorite music is bouncy and happy and dancy or disco-y usually, but I also have a soft spot for jazz and African music. i've been listening to a lot of electro-swing lately.

My favorite food is yes.

I'll eat anything and love variety; my specific favorite genres of food are Japanese, Vietnamese, and Newfoundlander. Sadly that latter is not usually available in Vancouver.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I make a point of being GGG, because I have a few interesting and obscure kinks of my own.
