My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up being shuffled around military bases, so I don't really have a hometown. This means that there's usually an awkward pause after someone poses the "where are you from" question, as I try to decide on the long, medium, or short answer. Lately I've just gone with Idaho before I found myself settled here in Texas. And then someone makes a potato joke.

Anyway, all of this moving around has made me adaptable to most situations, and adept at getting along with just about anyone. It's also taught me that there is always something to be had in common with another person, no matter the first impression.

Editing now because shy doesn't apply to me anymore. It took a whoooole lot of time and work, but now I'm outgoing and confident in social situations. It's so much fun I can barely stand it.

I'm pretty low key in my habits and hobbies, large crowds and flashing lights tend to lead to sensory overload and headaches for me, so I'm more of a neighborhood bar than a downtown club sort of girl. I do make exceptions though, because dancing is awesome, no matter how ridiculous of a dancer I am.

I read until my eyes cross, play fun video games, and apply thick layers of sunscreen to my poor poor skin in my annual summer quest to become a proper water mammal.

Note 5/10/12--I just took a test on my philosophy whatever. It says that I'm a rationalist, and now I'm deeply offended >:(

Also, all you spelling obsessives out there, just think about how annoying you are to all of the dyslexics out there. Spelling is such a mundane and inaccurate measure of intelligence or curiosity.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Wait, there's supposed to be some kind of plan or intentionality about this? I've been doing it wrong the whole time.

Or my rubric just doesn't match up with the common understandings of success. I feel happy and fulfilled, so I think this is probably the case.

I think that I've reached a point where I've got all the basics under my grasp. Pay my bills, call mom regularly, keep the house clean. Clean-ish. Not gross. Ok, the house is cluttered, but the dishes are clean.

My creativity just sort of exploded recently and I can't seem to stop writing or thinking of poetry/prose/philosophy projects. Yes, I am *that* nerd. But I don't bring out the philosophy jargon when it's not appropriate to the situation. I'm not *that* nerd.

Anyway, now maybe I get a chance to work on the fun stuff. Learn new things, relearn old things, worry a little less, and maybe make my way into a job that's a little less dull.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Scratching dogs just the way they want to be scratched. They didn't even know that spot was itchy, but I found it, oh yeah.

Making fantastic spaghetti while consuming way too much of the $7 giant bottle of St. Genevive Pinot Nior

Relaxing all of the muscles of my face, neck, and shoulders. Years of chronic headaches make for a useful teacher. They've also lead to me being really good at...

Neck and shoulder rubs!

I feel like if I add any more to this, I'll just be tooting my own horn. Which I'm also really good at.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no idea how people perceive me, so I did a quick survey::

quiet, an irony laced sense of humor, wears cool hats
That was forever ago, why would you ask me?
Funny, fabulous ass (cue me blushing, and preening a bit)
Tendency to sit back and observe, with occasional commentary

Personally, I just assume people like me and act accordingly

I've become a little less quiet on first impression. Although I do often slip back into observation mode. Sometimes I just like to sit back and appreciate what's going on :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Listing my favorite books would be an undertaking. I've been a huge fantasy /scifi nerd ever since I started swiping reading material from my brothers. They're also the ones responsible for my early indoctrination to pen and paper rpg. And 80's and 90's industrial, punk, alternative. From sisters of mercy, to front 242,the pixies, fugazi, etc.

I miss the surge of girl rock in the nineties, although it seems to finally be making a comeback.

A few other favorites : Josh Ritter, New Pornographers, The Thermals, Frightened Rabbit, Janelle Monae, Dessa, Titus Andronicus

As far as movies go, I love classic romantic comedies, hate almost all new ones. Love genre movies, horror, thriller, noir and its descendants, etc. Good documentaries. I have a soft spot for teen movies. Bring It On, Whip It, Band Slam and the like.

A few great books, off the top of my head : Spin, Terror, In The Woods, Tigana, Snow Crash. I love history and nonfiction, mostly in audio book form recently. Oliver Sacks is my hero.

I'm on a "lesbian" fiction kick. Cheesy romance novels, more serious lit, sci-fi/fantasy (look up Nicola Griffith, you'll thank me) and everything else that fits.

I've been reading a lot about psychology/brain development/neuroscience

This is getting long D:

I also play lots of video games, but am not very good.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Skipping the big things for the more interesting :

Cheesy lesbian romance novels. Everyone needs their crack, after all
My stupid smart phone that has dissolved my ability to wait in lines without distraction.
Audiobooks and podcasts for work. My job is boring.
San Francisco Bakery. Come to me, Santa Clara on wheat
The internets
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Fantasies. From dirty, god-disapproved ones, to that one about taking off to live in the keys, to the daydream where I'm a globe-ranging superthief who charms all the ladies.

Will I ever be finished putting my room in order?

Would I eat that for a dollar? (Probably)

How strange it is to be anything at all.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At happy hour with friends, or just hanging out playing bomberman together.
At home playing the netflix game cuddled up with dogs and queso
Probably not at a club
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
While most people have more social anxiety in real life rather than online, I am the complete opposite. I'm not all that nervous around people I meet face to face, but when it comes to emailing or messaging someone through the wires of the intertubes I'm suddenly all "omg what if they don't want to talk to me or maybe I'm bothering them I don't know what to doooooo". I don't really understand it, since anonymity is supposed to be freeing and all that jazz.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think I'm cute (omg, you're making me blush).
You want to talk about or do nerdy things. Or not nerdy things. I like things in general.
You'd like to go on a "date" date and see me blush in person.
