My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Bipedal. Mammalian. "Artist". (And, dude, I will always use the scare-quotes.) Founded in 1987 in the state of Minnesota (the state nobody thinks about when they think of the US; just above Nebraska but below Vermont). I like to make things.

I love nature but I think it's doomed to remain an unrequited passion. I love to get REALLY EXCITED about doing things but I often get awkward as soon as I find myself in the middle of them. I love awkwardness in general. I love absurdity. I love history. I have been known to shout "LET'S GO ON A DRUNKVENTURE" even when sober. One day I'd really like to run off to sea.

The best kinds of conservations are the kind that combine philosophy, little kid humour, and spontaneous expression.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just started my MA in Media, and trying to plot out how to take over the world where I'm going next. Who invented the concept of the five year plan? Seriously. Does anyone actually have a five year plan?

Right now I work as a writer/reviewer and freelance video artist/photographer. But the ambition is to publish my book and then to write for television.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Some of my friends have an on-going joke that my X-Men mutant power is finding missing things as long as they don't belong to me. Lost your keys? Or your wallet? Or your iPod? 9 times out of 10, I can find them for you.

Unless they're with my keys. Then you might as well ring a locksmith/Apple store/someone who sells wallets.

It's a slightly flawed mutant power, I admit.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm either going go with my height or my hair colour (as it changes a lot -- the hair colour, not my height.

. . .Though, granted, that would be pretty awesome, in an Alice in Wonderland kind of way.)

I got some pretty awesome life stories.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

My degree is in media. So, uh: I consume a lot of media. But these have been recurring themes in my life over the last decade:

Film: Oh, I suppose I have to say Pirates of the Caribbean. Rather embarrassingly, I think I can still just about recite the entire film from memory off the top of my head. Including musical interludes during the action sequences. (Yeah. That was a productive summer, that was, learning to do that.) I also like things like Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Departed and Nightmare Before Christmas and Saw (but only the first one). I generally like big, epic, adventure films or films that are psychological thriller types, the ones that get under your skin. Right now I am digging Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes films. I suppose I should add fantasy-historical as a genre I like. Or maybe historically-set-but-NO-HISTORICAL-ACCURACY-WHATSOEVER-can-we-blow-things-up-now films. If you know of anything that might fit under that heading, recommendations are more than accepted and encouraged.

Show: Arrested Development, Friends, Frasier, True Blood, Top Gear, Horizon, QI, Jeeves and Wooster, Sherlock Holmes (1985 Jeremy Brett version), Gilmore Girls, 21 Jump Street, Project Runway, Good Eats, Burn Notice, Supernatural, The Simpsons, Stargate Atlantis. I also have a lot of love for old school American television like Taxi, The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Odd Couple, Welcome Back Kotter, I Love Lucy, etc.

And, man, if you can find a common theme in that list, I would love to know it.

Music: Radiohead. Radiohead is the ultimate answer. Radiohead is 42. If someone stuck me on an island and told me I could only listen to one band for the rest of my life, I'd be perfectly happy with that. Otherwise, I'm stuck more in the sixties and seventies. Pink Floyd, T-Rex, Bowie, The Kinks, Beatles, Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan etc. Or really cheesy 80s bands, like Duran Duran and The Cure. You can never go wrong with the Pixies. Lately I've been listening to old school techno. I don't know why.

Books (more like writers): Jack Kerouac, Richard Siken, Naomi Klein, Harold Pinter, Michel Foucault, Jane Austen, T.S. Eliot, Arthur Conan Doyle, Friedrich Nietzsche, P.G. Wodehouse, that Shakespeare dude, Augusten Burroughs, JK Rowling, Maureen Orth, George Orwell, Tim O'Brien, Edgar Allen Poe, James Joyce, Stephen Crane, Suzan Lori Parks, Richard Lovelace, F. Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner, e.e. cummings, Samuel Beckett, H.D. Thoreau. I also really love (auto)biographies and a wealth of non-fiction.

Food: Well, I'm American, so cheeseburgers are pretty fabulous. Uhm. Red Bull? I drink a lot of Red Bull. That's another thing someone usually first notices about me, at least on repeated viewing. Is she carrying a Red Bull can? Yes she is. I like adventuresome food. I like trying new things, from basic pub food to monkey brains.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no order whatsoever:

Compassion; creativity; self-awareness; humour; a lighter; and straws. Because that's how I like to drink things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Oh let's see.

Metanarratives; American culture; how Foucault is awesome; why hats are awesome; brand marketing; sewing projects I never seem to get around to doing; what to cook for dinner; if Photoshop is actually an expression of OCD; particle-as-wave theory; the people I find attractive; whatever creative project I am working on at the moment; how to bring back the mullet; Stuff.

Yep. Stuff. Everyone thinks about Stuff right?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Drawing on my face with Sharpie;
Sitting in a dive bar, debating politics;
Snuggled up with my dogs and something to watch;
Sitting in a coffee shop, playing cards;
Having dinner with friends;
Playing tag in a park;
Seeing a play;
Seeing a film;
Dancing outside;
On a plane or train going somewhere (this seems to happen a lot);
Reading things on the Interwebz;
Working on a project that I procrastinated on all week (this also seems to happen a lot).

Combine at will. Mix well. Serve at room temperature with a sprig of mint.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You got a good heart, and the life experience to teach you that's nobody's perfect (but that most people are still pretty awesome).

Bonus points if you like dogs, you think mockery is a form of an affection, that there are some days where driving five hours just to eat really good marmalade is a worth-while endeavour, or if you want to teach a random person elementary physics.

(I like physics; I just don't know a lot about it. I will trade you physics for a lesson on cultural imperialism?
