My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My profile is huge. Sorry.

That said:

I like to read. I prefer vanilla ice cream to chocolate, coke to pepsi, and waffle fries over the ordinary kind. I make pretzel bread that is delicious, but tragic-looking. My favorite meal is brunch. I hate assembling furniture. I am a texting fiend. I alternate between sleeping too much and not enough, but never the right amount. I ask a lot of questions.

I'm currently dating the absolutely wonderful jhered, but I am polyamorous. I believe in ethical non-monogamy, where partners are honest about their other relationships. I know it's not for everyone, but it works well for me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in support services for the benefits department of an insurance company. It's a very new job, and so far I like it. The work is pretty dull, but there's always something that needs doing, which is good for me. And hey, paid holidays. That's pretty great.

My hobbies include reading, marathoning shows on Netflix, hanging out with my friends, cooking, polishing my nails, and striking up conversations with strangers at the brewpub I'm a regular at. I love talking and meeting new people.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Honesty, I'm great at all things Walt Disney World related. Beating lines, finding the choice cupcakes, manipulating the Fastpass system.

Additionally: telling funny stories about jobs and misadventures that I have had, and at leaving long voice mails that, while charming, rarely get to the actual reason that I called. I am also a superior margarita maker, and good cook. My mushroom risotto delights all who try it, and I make damn good twice-baked potatoes.

On top of all that, I'm a great kisser. Seriously.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile, my eyes, and my skin are all up there. Sometimes my laugh, which can be quite loud. Depending on how inebriated I am, my state of undress.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The Bell Jar is among my all-time favorites. I like authors like David Sedaris and Augusten Burroughs. I like books that make me laugh, and make me think - preferably at the same time. I've read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn at least once a year since I was 10, and I've had the same copy since I was 12 or so. I very much like non-fiction, a good biography will keep me happy for days. Antonia Frasier is always a favorite.

As for movies, well...I'm just catching up on things I should have seen years ago. I loved "The Princess Bride", and I've enjoyed all of the View Askewniverse movies I've watched. "Terminator" was pretty cool. I really liked "When Harry Met Sally". Seriously, I'm getting caught up on things I probably should have seen ages ago. Also, I'm a huge Disneyphile. My favorite Disney films are "Hercules", "Sleeping Beauty", "Beauty and the Beast" and "The Little Mermaid." My favorite Disney-Pixar films are "The Incredibles", "Wall-E" "Finding Nemo" and "Up." I loved "Brave", but I'm not sure I would rank it as a favorite. I don't generally go to the movies on my own, or propose it as a date, but I'll tag along if invited. I saw "Monsters University" for my birthday, and really loved it. I also really enjoyed "Red 2", I thought it was a lot of fun. And Helen Mirren was awesome in it.

My TV choices are a strange mix. I love Deadliest Catch and Archer. After work, I like to watch mindless stuff: Hart of Dixie, Private Practice, and other programs too embarrassing to admit to in a public forum.

When it comes to music, I like a bunch of different things. My top five artists (according to my last.fm profile) are The Mountain Goats, Regina Spektor, of Montreal, The Apples in Stereo, and Sleater-Kinney. What I am listening to changes based on what is in the new bin of the college radio station. Here is a list, for your reading pleasure: Asylum Street Spankers, Lady Gaga, Andrew Bird, The Magnetic Fields, Belle and Sebastian, Amanda Palmer, Architecture in Helsinki, Modest Mouse, OK Go, Ted Leo + Rx, Fiona Apple, Ke$ha and Bikini Kill. Yes, I just listed Bikini Kill after Ke$ha. I like them both, though I do worry that my love of Ke$ha makes me a Bad Feminist. I really enjoy classical music as well, though I'm not especially well-educated on it. I love Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2, in particular. I'm also way into bluegrass lately, especially stuff by Earl Spruggs.

I don't have a favorite type of cuisine, but you could win my heart with a plate of biscuits and sausage gravy. Real, from-scratch biscuits and gravy, though. No mixes! My favorite dessert is key lime pie, followed closely by cheesecake. Ideally, cheesecake from Junior's. I am a Brooklyn girl at heart. I'm also a pretty good cook, I make yummy risottos and pasta dishes ;my pasta carbonara is toddler-approved. I'm on a quest to eat less fast food. The fact that I no longer work at a fast food restaurant makes that much much easier. Additionally, I like beer. I end up having dinner at my favorite brewpub once or twice a week. Good beer, good food and good conversation are pretty much my three favorite things in life.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Friends and family, especially the friends who have become my extended family. I don't see my parents and sister often, but I've been adopted by lovely people here. They make my life significantly more fulfilling, and fun.

2. A sense of humor: If I couldn't laugh, I don't know what I would do. I've learned to roll with the punches, but it's good to be able to laugh even when things are rough.

3. New people. Particularly friendly ones. I love going out alone and striking up conversations with strangers.

4. My glasses. I'm in trouble if I lose them.

5. My Scribd subscription. I was never a fan of ebooks, but having access to a library of several thousand is fantastic. And given how small my apartment is, it's good that I'm not buying new books right now.

6. Quick-dry top coat. It is a gift from chemistry, and I value it in a way that's hard to explain while still sounding like a reasonable person.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The people I love. The trips I'm planning to take (Disney World in Oct 2015!), the things I meant to do but didn't, the people I need to call. Whether or not I should apply to a new job. Why I did that thing that time when I was drunk and what, if anything, it means. I used to think a lot about why I dislike Xander so much, but then I saw the end of season six, and now I like him. So yeah.

I spend as little time as possible dwelling on the past or worrying about the future. Once things are out of my control, or before they're within it, I try not to obsess over them.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
likely at one of the two bars I love, shooting the shit with the bartenders and other patrons and drinking French 75s or local beer. If you haven't had a French 75, you need to.

Actually, now that it's CSA season, there's a good chance that I'm at home figuring out what to do with unusual produce.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I see a therapist twice a month. I'm on an unending mission to improve myself!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you feel like it. If I seem interesting, if we seem compatible, if something I said made you want to know more. Those are all good reasons.

Also, if you know what Jungle Speed is and you want to play it, or if you've got a good recipe for turnips or beets.

Please don't message me if you're looking for "discrete fun". I am all about ethical non-monogamy. Honesty is good, cheating is bad. And if all you're looking for is cybersex or nudes, just be honest, for fuck's sake. You're not gonna get 'em, but it makes it clear from the first that that's all you want, and keeps me from wasting my time.

One last thing! If you message me, I will be operating under the apparently-insane assumption that you want to talk, get to know me, possibly date, get in my pants, go to a movie, grab a coffee, trade service industry horror stories, whatever. If I say no thanks, try to be an adult? I'm really sick of people not getting the answer they feel entitled to and calling me a bitch, fat, a cunt, a dyke, etc. Seriously, people.
