My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm extroverted but introvert-aware, left-handed, born high-strung, much calmer now. Love unconventional exercise like snowshoeing, dance, badminton, roller skating, u-pick, swimming. Want to do more of such. Do a lot of yoga. Staring at this screen is an excellent exercise in self-discovery, but I'd like to get away from it a little more. Revolted by drama, which includes politics.

Please see my "I'm Looking For" section. I'm poly but not seeking anyone else to date.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In the nostalgia bizness. Some volunteer positions; some collaborations. Mostly design, schmoozing, and performance. I get to do some pretty fun stuff.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Spelling, grammar, punctuation.
Writing. I think. At least I love to write.
Great detail...
...Ergo, patience.
Making silk purses out of sows' ears.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
This is by no means exhaustive. Most of this is from glancing at my bookshelf and whatnot.

Writers: P.G. Wodehouse, Fannie Flagg, Tom Robbins, Rebecca Wells, Louisa May Alcott, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Rob Brezsny. Love to read about regional history. Storefront: The Disappearing Face of New York. The Images of America series. The Children of Green Knowe.

Artists: Winsor McCay, Tasha Tudor (the art that was her life), Kate Beaton, Carl and Karin Larsson, Charley Harper, Roald Dahl, Alice & Martin Provensen, Nick Bantock.

Film: Anything accurately portraying cultural history. Wes Anderson, for the detail and the verve. Yes, I know. Fellini's epic pieces, like Casanova. Fantasy like Return to Oz and The Dark Crystal. Blade Runner, The Fifth Element. Sound of Music, Star Wars and The Wizard of Oz, for the memories. The Sixth Sense and It's A Wonderful Life still make me verklempt. Singin' In the Rain, for the happy.

TV: old Sesame Street, 'specially the stop-mo. Whose Line Is It Anyway. Sifl & Olly. Old commercials on YouTube. British children's serials.

Music: Stuff that is vivacious, has a beat, and is colorful. Louis Armstrong, Louis Prima, Stevie Wonder, the Beatles, Janelle Monae, Vashti Bunyan, Simon and Garfunkel, just about everything on Divaville or Jukebox Saturday Night (KMHD), Ravel, Debussy, Holst. Some nostalgic '80s. Glockenspiel is my cowbell.

Food: Umami and sweet reign; bitter and overly spicy are avoided. Not into coffee or beer, and wine is just OK. But I'll try anything, as long as it doesn't have wheat or dairy in it. Coupla favorites: paprikash, deviled eggs, anything with liquid smoke, tom kha, lemon meringue or cherry pie. Something from your garden or the farmer's market.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
How 'bout calling it "My top six." That way people are not including boring crap like water. (Sorry, water, I like ya and all, but...)

People! My brilliant friends and family, namely.
My cell phone. I said it. (GPS and camera being the most important features. I have inherited the worst sense of direction in the world.)
Sunlight and warmth. More, more!
The ability to imagine and create.
Lusciousness, in every sensory category.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Being a supertaster.
Running themes and patterns in behavior, plots, and otherwise.
What I ought to eat and how to make it tastier.
Chemical balance/imbalance and its influence on emotion and drive.
Methods of communicating candidly in tricky situations.
That one word right on the tip of my tongue that would be the perfect descriptor for this situation but I can't remember it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
You name it. Working, playing, toilet papering somebody's house. You know, the usual.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Is there a word for someone who you'd like to be, but you also have a crush on 'em? Though I'd settle for best friend, were that possible. Anyway: IDGIE THREADGOODE.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You'd like to be my friend. Those wishing to add "with benefits" to the end of that title will want to look elsewhere.

You have something fascinating to share or ask me.
