Art, gender and feminist lit/theory, science, and really bad puns are my current passions in life. The moment I can do them all at once, I will have achieved Ultimate Perfection (TM) and will have no more need for this puny mortal form.
They/them pronouns, please.
For some aggravating reason, OKC only lets me be interested in Men, Women, or Everyone; I've chosen "women" explicitly to dissuade cis men contacting me. If you're queer, and not a man, you're someone I'm interested in.
I'm currently in a non-monogamous relationship, so am open to dating but am probably more interested in friends for now.
I currently split my time between working part-time, drawing, painting, crocheting, writing, and staring into the abyss (Facebook). I've also recently picked up learning to design websites, but with all the free time I've left for myself I manage to read a bit for fun.
I have a problem where I get interesting in something, and then I learn a bit about it (usually over the course of a week), and it's a skill that I keep, sort of, but maybe never use again. Crocheting has been my longest-term hobby so far. I can crochet the f*ck out of a scarf.

I haven't been in a serious, long-term relationship for most of my adult life. I kind of want one.
...you have any good book/movie/comic/music/food recommendations
...you are a nerd, geek, or generally pro-science kind of person
...you want to chat (does this even need to be said? I mean, theoretically, this is a social networking site, so that means a great majority of the people on this site want to socialize, and chatting is usually an accepted part of socializing, so this may very well be redundant and I'm okay with that)
