Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an artsy weirdo who can usually pass in polite society. I enjoy
wandering, hot beverages, and punctuation, preferably at the same
time. My idea of a great afternoon involves public art, impromptu
outdoor music, girls on roller skates, and good beer. I pick up
shiny things on the sidewalk.
And if you let me play with your pit bull puppy, I will most likely
ignore you for the next 20 minutes while I chase it in circles
around your feet.
Right now I'm rockin' out in DE and small-town PA, but I'm
not-so-secretly a total city kid. (But the food in farm country is
I am silly, vibrant, and adjectival
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
generally, challenging authority and poking bears.
Working as a pastor, which confuses a lot of people when they first
meet me. I love being able to talk about the big picture, while
also being smart and not insane. (And having good politics.)
[I am Protestant but listed "other" in my details, because I tend
to have fairly little in common with people who describe themselves
as Christian, and way more in common with
For the record, I'd describe myself as a Presbyterian/Quaker who is
drawn to Zen practice and Christian Anarchy. And I kind of revel in
people being confused by that.]
Learning new things, constantly and on purpose. Right now I'm
learning to play the ukulele, because why not?
I identify as queer (or bi if you insist).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

I have ridiculously broad and random taste in music. Gritty punk,
political hip-hop, foreign pop, 40s dance, old/new blues, AFP with
a ukelele. Developing an affection for weird
electronica/dance/dubstep, which kind of confuses me. You name it,
I'll probably enjoy it, except if it's just an angsty boy with a
(Lately I've mostly been listening to vinyl, which makes me feel
like a snob, except it really means I'm listening to whatever
absurd stuff I find in the $1 album pile at Goodwill.)
I love books, and especially indie bookstores. I always have a soft
spot for some cultural studies/queer theory/extremely nerdy
history, and I get on fiction kicks where I'll just dive into a
story for two days. I've run out of bookshelf space
Reading right now: Occupy Spirituality, The New Jim
Crow, The Ethical Slut, and lots of queer
Lately I've been watching more tv than movies - Doctor Who,
Sherlock, Glee, Torchwood, SVU, whatever random thing my sister is
watching (usually Ninja Warrior). Just getting into The Walking
Dead. On the other hand, I just saw The Hebrew Hammer for the first
time, and it's basically everything I want in a movie. I spent one
summer in college watching But I'm a Cheerleader about once a day.
(In my defense, I was recovering from surgery.)
And I am a fan of most food. I love anything spicy or
curry-related. I'm mostly vegetarian at the moment (okay,
pescatarian really), because I just feel better that way, but
animals are tasty sometimes. Also, I make bitchin vegan cupcakes.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Creativity, coffee/tea, intellectual stimulation, exercise, good
food, someone to flirt with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
gluing stuff together. colors. also, roller derby.
I think way too much about most things, most of the time. Why do we
do the stuff we do? Where do these words come from? Queer politics,
feminism, anti-racism. Dabbling in kink.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably at a derby event, and/or having drunken arguments about
theology and religious history. Most likely geeking out about
something or other.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm terrible at secrets. (My own, anyway. I'll keep yours.)
Recently came out as poly, and that feels shiny and new and like
the best thing in the world. I'm seeing several great people right
now and I feel a little full up as far as relationships are
concerned. But who knows?
You should message me if

you want to go out for a drink and have a flirty and intense
discussion about something.
(NB- please, if you're going to send me a message, make it
interesting or at least personal.)
Also, you should definitely message me if you have weird hair or
piercings. I'm a total sucker for punky girls...
