My self-summary
Please don't proposition me for a fuck and dash; I'm *not* interested. I seek dating partners (casual or serious).

I often don't reply to anyone whose profile is more than a 15% enemy match to mine because statistically we fundamentally disagree on social issues important to me.

I cut down my profile to reduce loquaciousness, but now I think that I sound allergic to fun. Boo hizzle! I am: a punster, eccentric, silly, serendipitous, effusive, intense, chameleonic, travel-sized, a minimalist, honest, ethical, liberal, empathic, compassionate, outspoken, crude, queer, sapiosexual, and so on.

I'm the kind of person who organizes pubic hair-dyeing parties. My spirit animal is Reggie Watts.

My favorite quote comes from Joseph Fort Newton: "People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges." I also have a particular soft spot for the Latin phrase "Dum spiro, spero" (While I breathe, I hope).

Prior to the past 6+ years in Austin, I've lived in the Houston area, small towns around the Houston area, and two years in Berlin, Germany.

I have some fabulously muscular legs from cycling and other activities, and I'm fat. If you think someone weighing 170 lbs. and wearing a size 12 in women's clothing is outside of your criteria for personal attractiveness then I am definitely not a match for you.
What I’m doing with my life
I spent the past year studying computer programming at Austin Community College (woo Python, C++, and Haskell), but I didn't have enough passion to pursue it for a career. I concurrently volunteered at the library and recently got a job as a librarian assistant which I feel much more passionate about. I may return to college later to study information and library science (maybe archivism). I also volunteer to proofread digitized copies of books for Project Gutenberg.

I'd like to get more involved with helping local community gardens, helping the less fortunate, etc.

I spent a year living in two co-op groups in east Austin, but I'm taking a break.

My interest in card games like Dominion, Magic: the Gathering, and DiXit waxes and wanes. I also hang out with the Burner crowd and go camping every few months.

I don't own a motor vehicle, so I cycle around a lot. I'm always looking for cycling companions.

I am an autodidact. I try to practice speaking German and Spanish via DuoLingo. I have a special fondness for learning languages because I love to learn how people use different sounds and gestures and other ways to communicate the same concept to other people. I love people-watching (in the least creepy way possible).
I’m really good at
friendships, exploring, causing people to laugh, quoting Internet memes, squealing in glee, arguing for the cards of other people at Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity, dividing small numbers into their lowest common denominators
The first things people usually notice about me
I laugh often, hard, and loudly. I giggle-snort. If you see it then you'll definite hear it.

If I'm cycling then people usually notice I'm wearing a helmet because that's rather unusual in Austin.

Hey, you! (Yes, YOU.) Do you have a favorite book? Tell me about it!

I devour sci-fi anthologies, and I'm fond of most of the writings of Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, James Alan Gardner, Mary Roach, Michael Pollan, and Richard Parks (to name a few among many). I enjoy poetry as well - especially Rumi and Rainer Maria Rilke and Walt Whitman.

I watch a lot of fantasy, action, anime, science fiction (naturally) and darker movies.

I like most music; give me some drum and bass, and I'll shake what my mama gave me. My playlist consists mainly of folk music, bluegrass, electro, pop, EBM, gothic, industrial, musical hits from the 1960s on up. I also like bands like Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio because A) Yay, Latin! and B) they have song titles such as "Three Is an Orgy, Four is Forever" and "Who Stole the Sun from Its Place (In My Heart)" and I cannot tell if they're serious or it's all a big joke.

There are certain artists like Dido, Pete Seeger, Imogen Heap, Zöe Keating, America, Daft Punk, Combichrist, Yann Tiersen, e-gens, Guy Gerber, Simon and Garfunkel, Deb Talan, The Who, Ladytron, Wolfsheim, Don McLean, Eisley, José González, Incubus, Lady GaGa, Skrillex, Iron and Wine, Florence & the Machine, Bonobo, Fleet Foxes, Shpongle, and Puscifer that I always feel happier while listening to. This is sometimes true about Morningwood, R.E.M., Neko Case, IAMX, Rammstein, and The Dandy Warhols. I have a fangirl crush on Danielle Ate the Sandwich and also Rebel Wilson so hard that it's almost painful.

I cannot think of a food that I wouldn't try once. My social company includes lots of vegetarians and vegans, so when dining with company, I also tend to stick to vegetarian options. I'm especially fond of Mexican, Asian, and African cuisine.
The six things I could never do without
(Please replace "could never do without" above to "prefer not to do without.")

pockets
bicycle
needle and thread
computer+Internet access
intellectual curiosity
ginger milk tea - I'd put ginger in everything from cereal to birthday cake if I thought it would improve the taste.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
time-lapse star-gazing videos
bartering and non-standard forms of currency (Ex: tacos!)
radical self-sufficiency
kinetic sculptures
biospheres; co-housing; tiny house; underground living
Eurovision
non-violent communication (The name sounds woo-woo, but it has some sound guidelines.)
birding
spelunking
On a typical Friday night I am
... error, does not compute
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There's very little off-limits to me. I have an active Fetlife account. I find The Red Green Show hysterically funny. I have been known when drunk (and sometimes not drunk, *ahem*) to sing the theme song to Schnappi das Kleine Krokodil complete with hand gestures.
I’m looking for
  • Guys and girls who like bi girls
  • Ages 21–65
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
... not if, but WHEN?

Some more points that raise compatibility but aren't deal-breakers:
... you wear sensible shoes (or no shoes at all).
... you're not an alcoholic.
... you voted in your national and local elections.
... you're looking for a cycling partner.
... you would like to volunteer with me.
... you want to geek out about computer programming languages.
... you don't carry or own a firearm.

Please ignore the bit about my looking for people near the Austin area. I prefer local dating partners, but I would consider a long-distance relationship if I meet someone extraordinarily well-suited. Either way, I love hearing from people outside of the greater-Austin area as well as inside of it.
