My self-summary
I am outspoken and passionate. I always wave at small children. I have been known to give directions to tourists and then ask them to pay it forward by standing on the right hand side of the escalator in the Metro.
What I’m doing with my life
By profession I'm an instruction and reference librarian, but I put a lot of energy into spoken word and poetry slams. Other things that make me happy include playing in a handbell choir where we don't always play the same parts and researching Harry Potter for academic conferences.
I’m really good at
*Thinking of five different ways to say the same thing. It's really helpful when I'm teaching or am at the reference desk and can help someone reframe their question.

*Being exuberantly articulate.

*Singing. Especially harmony, either written or improvised.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Thinking. It sounds odd, I know, but then so am I. :-p

The proper use of elipses...

The fact that I ever thought I was an introvert.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have an irrational fear of burning my tongue and an irrational fear of dropping my keys down a storm drain or elevator shaft.
