I am not: one of the cool kids
Edit: Apparently OKCupid has decided that I am, in fact, cooler than the average lady my age. I have no clue how OKC came up with that. Because seriously, I am a big awkward dork who fails at pop culture.
Or at least attempting to. It's a bit touch and go.
-Understanding dog behavior
-Meeting strangers from the internet
-Vegan magic to make things like lasagna
Movies/shows: Enamored with most of Joss Whedon's work. I was great at not having a TV until we reached the age of TV on the internet. But hey, I'm better at water cooler conversations about the latest gossip on Orange is the New Black, now!
Music: My go-to Pandora stations are a gothy/industrial dance mix (titled "Music to Dance and Hurt People By"), a Shins-inspired station (titled "Chillaxin"), an oldies station (titled "Dad Would Be Proud"), and a Metric-inspired station that doesn't have a clever name. Left entirely to my own devices while driving, I tend to gravitate toward shitty pop music.
Food: I'm a vegan, and mostly eat the closest thing that I can approximate to a meat-and-potatoes diet. Sometimes I throw some kale in there, just for good measure. If you go out for sushi with me often enough, you will end up trying inari. And then you will thank me.
-Companionship in some form
-A means of self-expression
-Stupid outfits for companion animals
Generally? Rope bondage. Sexuality, and asexuality. Gender politics. Dog training. Light. Photography. Evolution. Cognition. Social dynamics. Selection pressures. Externalities.
I'm pretty bad at keeping up OKC communication for more than a couple of back-and-forth's. If you sound interesting, I'll probably propose meeting for coffee or beer right from the get go.
