I do a lot of things with my time. Over the last three years, I've been an English teacher in two countries, literature nerd, amateur runner, only slightly less amateur road cyclist, and Peace Corps volunteer. I'm trying to have a bit more permanent of a place to live after the last several years of living out of bags, though I might go itinerant again for school or some other kind of work in the long term. So I'm running a bike shop for now, and in my opinion, it's a pretty nice place.
Also, since the US Supreme Court ruled that it's legal to say anything about one's self on an online profile, whether or not it's true*, I'd like you to know that I'm an associate justice on the US Supreme Court.
(Obviously that's not true. But the rest of the profile is! If you want to know more about any of those things, ask. I'm happy to answer questions, but I don't want to make anyone dig through too much text on this read-through.)
Isabel Allende. Ray Bradbury. Louis-Ferdinand Céline. Ursula le Guin.
Bjork. Daft Punk. Sharon Van Etten. Shearwater. Черри-Sozrely (a friend's band).
Jane Espenson. RDM. Adam Reed. Joss Whedon.
Mary Harron. Hal Hartley. Sarah Polley. Wachowski siblings.
Ted Hughes. William Langland. Edna St. Vincent Millay. Christine de Pisan.
As long as it's somewhat spicy, I'm up for it.
Why OKC thinks I'm less progressive, polite, and creative. Or why anyone is "more" or "less" anything. I think the metrics are broken at the moment.
Why I get visitors to my page (and occasional messages) from OKCers who don't live in the same country as me. Nothing against you! I'm just not there, and not likely to be there any time soon. Sorry.
Not private: I was disappointed by Season 4 of Arrested Development.
Message me if you feel like it! Or if you're tempted to rate me highly on Quickmatch; I can't see who rated me unless I pay for membership, and I don't want to do that.
If you understand, or at least enjoy, this song, and if you understand it, think its story constitutes a pretty nice way to wake up and spend a day, at least once in a while: http://cherrysozrely.bandcamp.com/track/--2
You shouldn't message me if you answer "yes" to questions like "Is homosexuality a sin?" or "Should homosexuals not be allowed to adopt?" I'm an ally, and if you think that way about people, you won't like an awful lot of my friends, and we're not likely to get along.
You also shouldn't message me if you're tempted to send me a message like this when I find out that you think there's a correlation between "race" and intelligence (real message here, the name has been omitted to protect the dumb). When I told her I wasn't interested in talking with people who believed that was true, she wrote this gem, which somehow completely manages to avoid talking about what intelligence is in any situation, let alone how it connects to "race:"
"Nature vs nurture.
"Are the western colonies more intelligent than 3rd world countries?
"But civilizations such as the Anutans were less educated than the west. Did they thrive? Absolutely. Were their lives complicated? Not at all.
"It's not about race. It's about resources available to them. But for the majority of those on here, they'd have to look up Anuta to know what the hell I'm talking about.
"I'm a Sociology major with a minor in Cultural Anthropology. How many people do you think can even pronounce 'anthropology' and more so, not assume it to be some sort of dinosaur or constellation?
"Then again, it never specified which race. For instance, the human race is incredibly unintelligent. It's filled with narcissistic beings walking around with their noses up at everyone else. All the while, those that are holier than though [sic], are just as niave [sic] and ignorant as their neighbor.
"Next you have Americans. We are so uneducated versus the country of China. Is it safe to say that the majority of chinese [sic] you meet are smarter than the average american [sic]?
"It's the culture and society.
"I won't be re-evaluating my 'opinion'.
"Have a safe flight."
Also, apparently I now have to specify that if you think people should be forbidden from having kids due to the potential parents' IQ scores, I don't want to talk to you either. Knew I missed something.
