My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an incredibly nosy near-cliche with a penchant for hot sauce and a love-hate relationship with the AP Style Guide. I jazz-hand with a fervor. I know the difference between "less" and "fewer" and might make an awkward face if you mix them up. I like Sirius Black and Brooklyn 99 and once talked to Peter Sagal on the phone. I talk too much about my crotch-bits and/or the care and feeding of baby raptors for some people to tolerate. One time I wrote a story about a lactose-intolerant boy who was in love with an ice cream truck driver. I have a lot of feelings about the Chicago Blackhawks.

I am also straight-up terrible at using OKCupid, so any radio silence is all on me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I edit for a progressive reproductive rights website and write about intersectional feminism and queer issues for various online lady-mags.

I work weird hours and I like to keep busy, but in my spare time, I rescue birds, punch things, sneakily advocate for the Oxford Comma, and write a lot of strangely erotic poetry, usually featuring stone fruits. Sorry about my choices.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people feel uncomfortable. Or more comfortable. Depending on how snuggly you are. Related: crashing wildly into my dearest friends, both physically and emotionally.

Spilling things on myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My mouth is usually open. (Please note profile pictures.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Anything by Terry Pratchett, especially Good Omens. Another Country. Snow Crash. Mrs. Dalloway. The Hunger Games. Kafka on the Shore. Anything by Dorothy Parker. I am voracious and largely indiscriminate. (Twilight need not apply.)

How to Train Your Dragon, Newsies, The History Boys

Misfits, Community, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Doctor Who, Brooklyn 99, My Mad Fat Diary, Broad City

The Mountain Goats, The Weepies, Frightened Rabbit, The Hush Sound, Ingrid Michaelson, Betty Who, The National, Daughter, Ke$ha

I will eat anything as long as it is vegan. Especially if hot sauce is involved.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
comfortable shoes, This American Life, glasses and/or contacts (but really), a ballpoint pen, at least moderate sunshine, my family (friends, dog included)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
whatever story I'm currently working on. LGBTQ rights. sex. space. Corey Crawford. werewolves.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
skulking at a dive bar, drinking whatever's on tap and panting quietly over the ice sports game on television. or dancing like a weirdo to top-40 music. or listening to an audiobook and doing situps. or exploring.

regardless, probably eating chips and salsa.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I get very, very anxious about being on time to things.

Also, I'm a big queermo vegan writer-type who doesn't take anything seriously enough. I laugh at myself a lot.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you want to go get coffee and are not intimidated by personal questions, especially if you are not exactly straight. (queers of a feather whisper about the hot people at the next table together.) and if you just want to hang out! I would rather have a platonic new friend than a one-night-stand.

I also just moved to Chicago in August, so I am still thoroughly entrenched in an embarrassing honeymoon phase wherein I get drunk a lot and breathe things like "Don't you just love that skyline?" So, yeah, do that with me.
