My self-summary
Ahem....quirky loner, prone to silliness as well as sarcasm, small acts of kindness, with occasional bouts of intense creativity...followed by intense bouts of sleeping and reading in bed with tea.

I dream of going to the Outer Hebrides. I want to see Skara Brae and climb Dunadd again.

I may be the only person who does not want to visit or does not have a picture of myself at Machu Picchu. I also do not have pictures of me camping or running marathons because those things are my idea of hell. (yet I have lost 30 lbs so it is possible to get by on some half assed yoga and portion control)

I mean...I like the idea of camping. Well, I like campfires. Okay, I like s'mores. Let's just go with that.

I want to learn to weld, sew, knit, and speak Gaelic.

It is entirely likely that I won't be learning any of those things because life gets in the way. I actually was taking Gaelic classes but then my work life balance got a bit off kilter and I had to stop.

Recently someone said he hoped I'd find someone and be happy, I replied: I have reached a point where I am happy with my life whether I do or not. Happily ever after doesn't begin with being with "the one" for me. It began when I decided that I was the person who could make it happen. I wish it hadn't taken me so many years to figure that out.

When in the mood, I paint my car, the walls, and furniture. I read, snuggle with dogs, nap, drink tea, worry about my perennials, use too many ellipses, and wish I could listen to all the Radio4 programs ever made.

I like to work out- and by "work out" I mean take naps and watch stuff on Netflix.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching kids to read gooder.
Attending to the wants and needs of two very entitled rescue dogs.
Using the oxford comma.
I’m really good at
Accumulating books, noticing the absurd, subversive craft projects, avoiding crowds spending too much time on imgur.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not laid back. I'manimated, intense, iconoclastic, and tangential.

"Wow you look good for your age." (Gotta love the back handed compliments. I'm so glad time has not ravaged me to the point where said person ran away in disgust. Go me.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Nobody reads this part.
The six things I could never do without
coffee, air conditioning, clean underwear, naps, and kittens that shoot lasers out of their eyes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether or not I will run out of history documentaries to watch on youtube.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out in the local Barnes and Noble moving all the bibles to the Fantasy section.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I met Lewis Black at a book signing and I told him that I wanted to have his angry baby.
You should message me if
...you hate fun.

....you like contra dancing

...you have more to say than "hi sexy" and "wanna fuck?" (it is sad how often women on here get those kind of messages)

...you have a thing for tall outspoken dorky chicks.

...you have shirtless selfies, poor grammar, or use LOL. It makes me feel better about myself.
