My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! Nice to meet you.

I adore Mary Poppins. Sometimes I pretend I'm flying like Mary Poppins when I ride on escalators. (I recommend it, especially if you are prone to escalator anxiety on the DC metro.)

My inner monologue is narrated by Tom Haverford. I tried in vain to get Leslie Knope, but we can't have everything!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Things I tend to do on a regular basis:
- trip over my own feet
- sing and make up folk song versions of my favorite Doctor Who themes (don't knock it until you've tried it, baby)
- spend an absurd amount of time on Reddit
- eat a lot of hummus, guacamole, and cheddar cheese. mmmm. I am also super into roasted broccoli lately. Roasting vegetables! Like, twenty times more delicious. I'm telling you. If you get nothing else from my profile, please take this advice. :P

I'm a school librarian and I just got my M.Ed in Arts in Education. I was in Philly for undergrad and Boston for grad school, and now I am figuring out D.C. for awhile! I love rambling about books, new media, and art, and how all of those things provide enormously important learning experiences.

I love to laugh. I really love to sing, and I'll probably sing along to anything. I'm singing along to the Avett Brothers as I type this. The multi-tasking is hard.

I'm a feminist, and talking about feminism and gender equality is pretty important to me. I welcome your thoughts on the matter!

I listen to the same songs over and over sometimes. Okay, all the time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have spent HOURS AND HOURS mastering this one Sporcle quiz. Countries of the World. Let's just be clear here: I am a champion. The Balkans still really trip me up, though. I have to be honest with you all here, because OKC is all about baring one's soul.

I am also very good at emoting. :P
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
They say I walk funny! Hmm, what else?

That I'll probably be in navy and white stripes. I have a disproportionate number of such clothing items.

I just asked my little sister what the first things people notice about me would be, and she said, "They'd probably hear you first." So, there you go: feet shuffling, loud talking (or singing!), and all.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books: TAMORA PIERCE. Anything by her. Diana Wynne Jones. Also anything by her!

I adore YA literature!

Actual book titles: To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling (of course!), Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Bluebeard by Kurt Vonnegut, Lamb by Christopher Moore, The Princess Bride by William Goldman, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz, lots of Shakespeare (I was in a Shakespeare company in college, so I'm very fond!), and Paper Towns by John Green.

Movies: The Princess Bride, Ratatouille, Singin' in the Rain, That Thing You Do!, Benny and Joon, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Big Fish, LotR, Pirates of the Caribbean, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Howl's Moving Castle (I have this weird obsession with the Christian Bale dub), Love Actually, 1776 the musical, Mulan, Help! featuring the Beatles!

Shows: Doctor Who, Firefly, Chuck, Parks & Recreation (!), The Mindy Project, Gilmore Girls, Flight of the Conchords, 30 Rock (werewolf bar mitzvah, spooky scary!), Buffy/Angel (but I'm really behind), Brooklyn Nine Nine, Orange is the New Black. I'm working my way through the West Wing right now and I just started watching Portlandia!

Music: if one can sing along, I will like it. :) Power jams include "Africa" by Toto, "Spaceman" by The Killers, and "Young Blood" by Norah Jones. Other favorite bands include: The Beatles, Elton John, Billy Joel, The Fratellis, Slow Club, Flight of the Conchords, The Shins, Belle & Sebastian, BnL (still!), David Bowie, Lisa Hannigan, Mika, the Duhks, and the Mountain Goats. I've recently been enjoying the Avett Brothers a lot, and the Béla Fleck station on Pandora is also a current favorite! The song I'm listening to on repeat right now is "I Am the DJ" but Neon Trees. And "Uptown Funk," duh. Make a dragon wanna retire, man.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
We aren't talking basic human needs, right? We're talking basic me needs here. So:

1. my loved ones
2. Gmail (oh, god)
3. hummus (I'm telling you, I have a problem. turn back now.)
4. dark chocolate (this is another problem)
5. some sort of performative outlet!
6. a book in my purse!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- whatever song is stuck in my head! there is always a song stuck in my head.
- I tend to process thoughts through daydreams and conversations, if that makes sense? I don't know if it does! but there you go. that's something else.
- how much I love Amy Poehler
- nerd culture and materialism and sexism and it tends to bog me down in a weird wandering, vaguely rant-y frame of mind

Here are some actual topics that crossed my mind today: counterfactual history, fan culture, how Romeo and Juliet should never again be produced as a sappy romance, and the ways that we watch TV today (or: Hulu, a dissertation). (I was a film major during undergrad! Geeking out over this stuff is my JAM.)

Sometimes I think about what name I might have besides the one I was given at birth. (I've settled on Maggie! I used to play a character named Adele, and I'm fond of that one too.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I love all sorts of low-key adventures! So Friday nights can involve wonderful books, awesome dinner plans, wandering-abouts, or movie marathons.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't have a driver's license. I am on my FIFTH learner's permit because I keep forgetting to actually be in the same state long enough to drive and take a test.

Public for private reasons: I don't drink alcohol! (Or, well, I only barely drink alcohol. I like baking with it, though!)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... you are enthusiastic about anything! I will probably like you. :)
... you want to freak out about Doctor Who or Horrible!
...if you are silly, generous, and compassionate.

I love making new friends, too!
