My self-summary
I like knowing stuff, all stuff, and I have a podcast problem. I tend toward non-fiction and academic topics, but I long for the days when I felt up-to-date on pop culture.* Can you recommend a podcast to keep me young and/or cool? Please contact me immediately.

Things I think are sexy: Good cooking, absurd senses of humor, people who care about mastering their hobbies, people who really fucking enjoy their lives.

*This was never. This has never happened to me.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working in IT! Yay!

Cooking: I learn new techniques and then apply them to brunch. Brunch is so perfect I can't even -- it's sweet AND savory, there's booze in my juice, and I get to go back to sleep after because it's Sunday.

Coding: It's fun.

Rock climbing: After 1.5 years off, I'm getting back into it. I am not very good.

Playing in a nerdy folk band: We set Tolkien lyrics to folk music. This is by far the whitest thing I've ever done.
I’m really good at
In no particular order: spelling and grammar, learning languages, cheering up sad people, eating quickly, locating free Wi-Fi in airports, keyboard shortcuts, math and statistics, trivia

Short hair. Smile.

Also I once threatened to kick someone out of my car for trying to throw my Taylor Swift CD out the window. We're no longer friends, I'm just saying.

Food:
Yes
The six things I could never do without
1. My cats. They rule.
2. Amy Poehler. Feminism.
3. Good food. Bad food also. I love food. Food food food.
4. Smart and/or surreal comedy, any medium. Mike Birbiglia rules and so does this joke: Two cows are in a field. One says to the other, "Hey man, are you worried about this mad cow disease thing?" The other says, "No way, I'm a plane."
5. My iPhone. Don't hate! It's the only reason I make it on time to things (like dates).
6. NPR. I know this is not the point, but if Diane Rehm started a cult, I'd definitely join it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why I'm covered in glitter all the fucking time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Not wearing pants.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have shit myself twice in a day before. I was 26.
You should message me if
You don't think every silence is awkward.

You can make me laugh. That's not a challenge, as in, "Message me if you're funny enough to make me laugh, for I am difficult to entertain!" It's actually really easy to make me laugh. I laugh at my own jokes all the time and they're usually not even funny.

You can beat me in Scrabble. That IS a challenge, motherfucker.
