My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Things that make me happy: living within walking distance of the beach; making friends in other cities and taking road trips to visit; Halloween; seeing live standup comedy; reviving old friendships via Facebook; listening to foreign accents or being fooled by a fake accent; cheesy '80s songs that have that swirly synthesizer sound during the chorus; the day when all the snow finally goes away for good.

Things that turn me right off: humourlessness; an air of entitlement; dogmatic religiosity; dogmatic politics.

I study the Welsh language as a hobby, os ydach yn siarad Cymraeg, rwi'n chwilio am bartner sgwrs. Diolch yn fawr!

Always looking to meet: wallflowers, cosplayers, gingers, someone who speaks like an Aaron Sorkin character, aspies, anyone for whom the final episode of "Spaced" brought a tear to their eye, tomboys, girly girls, recovering goths, recovering punks, standup comics...I guess what I'm looking for is someone smart, maybe a bit (okay, a lot) nerdy, and a city slicker--I'm just not much for canoeing and sleeping in the woods, my idea of a great vacation is exploring some European capital armed with just a subway map and a camera.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I went to film school, but I'm working an office job right now to pay the bills. I've recently become a contributor to a cool British nerd culture website, and I've started a FB page for my cosplay photography.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Indexing. Packing a suitcase. High-speed subtitle reading. Jigsaw puzzles. Navigation using not-to-scale tourist maps. Language theory (more than actually learning the language, sadly).
The first things people usually notice about me

Whether or not I'm currently on fire? I have no idea how to answer this.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. passport
2. camera
3. this mp3 I found online that's basically an hour of background engine hum from the Enterprise stitched together...it helps me get to sleep
4. FanExpo
5. the Cheese Shop sketch
6. popcorn with real butter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My next trip to the U.K., and will I ever get the chance to live in Cardiff long-term someday. Meeting great people who can change my life. Narrative universes. Time travel paradoxes. Set lists. Who shot the deputy? Where did Edward Scissorhands get the ice?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either at a movie for opening night (I live within walking distance of a good theatre, mercifully) or possibly studying as I take a class on Saturday mornings.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Despite what my music tastes listed above might indicate, I think that "Don't Stop Believing" may be among the top five greatest moments of American pop music in the last century. Also, I saw Mel C. in concert and she knocked my socks off. An unironically great time was had.

you're cool and strange and you find this whole internet personals thing as bizarre as I do. Or if it also bothers you when bookstores break "fiction" and "literature" into separate sections.
