I don't believe in monogamy at all and don't get into monogamous relationships. Just getting that out there, since that's something that's important to know. I prefer polyamory as a relationship model.
I'm built for skinny but am presently fat and have only my own habits to blame it on. I'm presently watching what I eat, but it's easier said than done.
I love wintery weather and consider the effort involved in getting around while it's snowy to be an acceptable price to pay for how pretty it is and for the delicious chill that cuts through the thickest coats. My favorite days are the ones where it's heavily overcast but isn't raining, cool and not so bright.
If your first exposure to me is textual you'll probably notice that I use a lot of parenthetical phrases, which I try with variable success to control.
I like some comic books- Superheroes mostly bore me (though Watchmen and Powers, which bring non-traditional takes on the concept, are okay), but Sandman, Transmetropolitan, and especially Hellblazer make me happy. I really wish Fables didn't have such awful, hateful politics. On the web, I like Questionable Content, SMBC, Nimona, Whomp, Awkward Zombie, Achewood, and that sort of thing.

TV: Arrested Development, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, I miss Daria, My Name is Earl, The Office, Rome, Scrubs, old Simpsons, Sons of Anarchy, Sopranos, Supernatural, Weeds. The Venture Brothers is my all-time favorite TV show and the recent Season 5 was probably the best yet.

Anything by Ernst Horn will probably make me happy.
Food: I like a broad range of foods and cuisines. Favorites are Indian, Mexican and Italian, though I'm also fond of Chinese and Thai. Cajun food is amazing, but I have a low tolerance for spiciness. That's tragic, though my tolerance is up a bit lately. I really don't like shellfish, but a nice deep-fried cod or catfish with a couple of wedges of lemon to squeeze over it is pretty much the best thing ever. Sushi is happiness distilled into bite-sized pieces. I also love cheeseburgers more than is perhaps rational, and don't care if they're beef or plant matter. I've learned over time that purchasing Nutella will result in an empty jar of Nutella in a distressingly short time, so I don't buy Nutella much.
I'd really like to meet somebody who likes the same kind of music that I do. I don't have anybody to listen to the Sisters with or gush over the new Youth Code at.
The use of homo/trans/etcphobic, racist, and sexist slurs pisses you off and you don't have to check over your shoulders to make sure the room is racially and sexually homogeneous before telling jokes.
You're local- I simply can't do long-distance. Tried it, can't do it.
