My self-summary
I really feel like I need to edit this thing every five minutes. I am displeased with self-summary.

I've been in Atlanta for about a year and a half. I grew up in a three stoplight town in NC, so I really love living in an actual Metro Area. I do miss the whole outdoors thing, tho, especially the beach and hiking.

I'm fairly geeky, but it's not the be-all-end-all of my existance, and I function pretty well among normal people. I also enjoy watching basketball, football, and hockey, and getting out every now and then to catch a show, although I don't get to nearly enough for my liking.

I am bored, nerdy, and no longer underpaid
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to reach the Hard level for drums on Rock Band and trying to move ITP.
I’m really good at
Making bean dip. Seriously, it's phenomenal.
The first things people usually notice about me
I used to get a lot of comments on my hair when it was red!, but now that it's toned down a bit, not so much.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A (relatively) short sampling of each:

a) High Fidelity, Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Bell Jar, House of Leaves, On the Road, The Little Prince, Alice in Wonderland, The Zombie Survival Guide, Harry Potter, most things by Neil Gaiman and Grant Morrison

b) Donnie Darko, Trainspotting, Serenity, The Evil Dead Trilogy, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, 28 Days Later, Amelie, The Godfather, The Nightmare Before Christmas, High Fidelity, X2, Royal Tenenbaums, Spirited Away

c) I seriously like almost everything, musically. My tastes range from pretty obscure (trance, beach music, Chapel Hill indie bands) to utterly mainstream (classic rock, modern "rock", hip hop). I guess a smattering of my favorite artists would include: Foo Fighters, Smashing Pumpkins, Death Cab, the Arcade Fire, Led Zeppelin, Outkast, Nina Simone, the Rat Pack, Oingo Boingo, Tori Amos, Daft Punk, the Killers, Pink Floyd, Nine Inch Nails, the National, Stars, the New Pornographers, Christina Aguilera, Stellastarr....anyway, you get the picture...

d) Creme brulee and sushi. I would probably enjoy creme brulee sushi if someone invented it.

ALSO, I just got introduced to the concept of lavender-flavored milk chocolate, which may possibly be the most fantastic thing on the face of the Earth. Damn the British for hogging it all! Damn them!
The six things I could never do without
My friends

My fat-assed cat

A ton of music

My Yaris, which I love like a child (a dented up, somewhat accident-prone child)

Comic books

My camera
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My post-college, psuedo-mid-life crisis crap that everyone else in this generation seems to be going through.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a knitting group, which is generally followed by drinking and revelry, probably at a friend's.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am very disillusioned with all of this interweb dating crap.
You should message me if
You aren't intimidated by tomboyishness. You live in or around Atlanta and not in, like, Walla Walla, Washington. You have a decent sense of humor. You prefer your nostalgia with a dash of irony. You are a space cowboy. You can handle nerdery. You prefer urban to suburban, left to right, cats (or dogs) to children, compacts to SUVs, Coke to Pepsi.

Ok, the last isn't really mandatory, but it is advised.
