My self-summary
i am a chick, with a body and a head. i like stuff. also things.

for the record - i visit nyc, philly, boston, & dc periodically.

i'm interested in making friends with anyone who's intelligent, quirky, and open-minded in ways the average person who says they're "open-minded" isn't. i like chatting over coffee, exploring, creek-stompin', and whatnot. i'm just looking for friends, as i'm very much in love with a remarkable man. i'm open to the idea of finding the right woman, but i really am not actively seeking more than friendship.

i'm a train wreck, but (i like to think) a well adjusted one. my house is pretty cluttered whether or not it's clean (varies from day to day). i try really hard to be thoughtful although sometimes i fall short. i'm fiercely loyal and will do anything within reason to help the people i love. i pretty much can't stop myself from yelling "PUPPY" every. single. time i see a dog. i'm a good listener and i can get along with almost anyone as long as they're interesting, smart, funny, and kind (some of my friends despise each other as a result). also, i give a pretty killer scalp scritchin'.

i'm the mama of my favorite person on the planet, as well as two spoiled dogs. i love beautifully dark art, wide open spaces, bugs, books, old things, and sunny patches of grass. i dig absolute individual liberty nonviolent communication, the phenomenal potential of permaculture, & the healing power of gentle touch.

so, yah. inasmuch as one can be encapsulated by a few paragraphs, that's me. hi.
What I’m doing with my life
beats me. trying to have fun. :-)
I’m really good at
giving people non-sexual physical intimacy without expectations, discussing things that people are not encouraged to openly discuss, gentle touch, cooking, typing, sensuality
The first things people usually notice about me
i don't really know, but i will say people are shocked when i tell them that i am shy. i guess it's just that initial 'hello' that's so difficult for me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
humm. i'm particularly fond of tom robbins, jonathan carroll, john irving, robert heinlein, neil gaiman, barbara kingsolver; but i also loved the hunger games trilogy, the girl who ... trilogy, godslayer/banewreaker - a duo by jacqueline carey, chew, transmetropolitan, the invisibles, anything ed phillips & sean brubaker have done, ad tons of other stuff.

when it comes to non-fiction, mary roach, mark derr, and dr. sears are some of my favorites. also - maxime schwarz's "how the cows went mad," lt. col. dave grossman's "on killing: the psychological cost of learning to kill in war and society"; and "ghosts from the nursery: tracing the roots of violence" by robin karr-morse.

pan's labyrinth, four rooms, dead alive, noises off!, the in-laws, club dread, cabin in the woods, clue, dr. horrible's singalong blog, the emperor's new groove (shut up), etc.

shows ... sherlock, dexter, superjail!, squidbillies, doctor who, firefly, arrested development, it's always sunny in philadelphia, portlandia, supernatural, the increasingly poor decisions of todd margaret, home movies, whitest kids you know (hit or miss tho), mr show, ... etc.

music ... omg, really? too much. there are still genres i haven't been exposed to but i love music. mclusky best thing ever, followed closely by future of the left. ummm. atmosphere, asylum street spankers, crooked still, sepultura, black keys, no means no, big black, blue highway, immortal technique... lots of stuff, i dunno!

i love food. all of it. as long as it's not a grain. or bleu cheese (blech).

adding one for my own amusement, artists: jennybird alcantra, fuco ueda, greg simkins, caitlin hackett, edwin ushiro, michael hussar, so youn lee, madeline von foerster, amy sol, tara mcpherson, jean-pierre roy, trustocorp, camilla d'errico, josh keyes, bradley kunkle
The six things I could never do without
my child, warm sunlight on my skin (not for more than one winter, anyway), touch/closeness, dogs, books, good people in my life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the future and how to make it an amazing one for my progeny.
On a typical Friday night I am
at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
that's creepy. wtf kind of question is that, okcupid?
You should message me if
you enjoyed reading this, and think we would get along.

you have zero expectations.
