My self-summary
Writer, just-graduated with a degree in philosophy, gourmet and gourmand. I play no instrument but I do have more than passing knowledge of showtunes, classic and contemporary. I am generous with knowledge.
What I’m doing with my life
Wishing people would stop asking me what I'm doing with my life. Working to undo years of passive assimilation. Some other verb that starts with a W.
I’m really good at
Reflexive Yiddish humor. Push-ups. Cooking and baking. I can draw and also write. Sometimes I'll knit a sock. Acquiring new languages. AP style. The Elements Song. Need I continue?

The bit about AP is a lie. I hate AP style and I resent my foxy history teacher for making me use it.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm short--let's be honest.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My current reading list:

Madness and Civilization, Michel Foucault
From Torah to Kabbalah, R.C. Musaph-Andriesse
Plato's Republic, ...Plato
Savage Detectives, Roberto Bolano

movies and tv (just a representative sample):
blazing saddles, the john lee movies starring chow yun-fat, Ichi the Killer, Boys Over Flowers, Deadwood, Miranda, Xena, Blackadder, Merlin, Kung fu dunk, basically any kung-fu or martial arts movie

My go-to triumvirate of musicians is Tom Waits, Iggy Pop, and Kate Bush. The best concert I've ever been to was Dir En Grey at the Showbox. My go-to genre I love best is jazz. My go-to song is HYFR.

food: I like all foods except (1) mustard; (2) alfredo sauce; (3) bavarian cream.

All of the above was only sparingly capitalized on account of the perceived difficulty of the task. Sorry, it does look funny. I chose to make an addendum rather than fix it, obviously.
The six things I could never do without
Books. Books, books books. Books. Kitties.

I forgot to mention smooth tenor sax.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Food, art and butts. Beyond that, you'll just have to talk to me to find out. I have to start using the oxford comma consistently, or else I'll no longer be justified in complaining about those who don't.

I am dismayed by how pedestrian Oxford comma jokes have become. I've seen them on at least two other profiles now, and I'm just going to have to think of something more original to put here. Probably a pun.
On a typical Friday night I am
Undergoing hypnosis to recover my historical past. Last session revealed that in another life, I was either a minor land baron in Reformation-era Poland, or Ephialtes of Trachis (aka cousin of Gollum who betrayed Leonidas in 300).

Just joshing you, I don't believe in that stuff.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Naruto makes me really want to be a ninja. Three guesses as to which team I'd best like to be assigned to.

P. S., I'm transgender (ftm). If you don't recognize the terms or want to know more, I recommend this neat search engine called Google.
A note to potential interlocutors, transgender is not my gender identity (dude is my gender identity) and does not define me as a person. If you'd like to talk, please don't lead with the above as a topic. It's pretty boring for me by now.
End PSA.

Okay, since no one has ever messaged me trying to guess which team I'd best like to be assigned to, I'll just tell you. Team Gai forever. Savor your springtime of youth.
You should message me if
You think the jokes on laffy taffy wrappers are genuinely funny. I can't believe that just now, as I type this, I finally realize why it's called "laffy" taffy................
