My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm genderqueer, queer (attracted to people of all genders), and a feminist. I'm a switch, and on any measure of personality I tend to come out six of one, a half dozen of the other.

I am a sucker for enthusiasm - anything that involves in-depth knowledge and overly excited hand motions is sure to get my attention. I tend to like people who have at least a few very different interests from me - I love getting to learn something new from someone who's passionate about it, whether its joke structures in stand-up comedy or obscure facts about 18th century philosophers or the evolution of the Star Wars universe that takes place in the novels.

I myself am very enthusiastic about bicycle adventures, singing at any time in almost any place, queer community, building shit, my hedgehog (who recently became a grandpappy!), being a grumpy feminist, NBC's Hannibal, drinking excessive amounts of tea, rambling on foot through Portland streets, attending comedy shows, and doing fun things at which I am not very skilled (rollerskating, instrument playing, quilting, socializing). I am still pretty into anthropology (my college major), spend a lot of time reading fantasy novels ranging from gritty urban fantasy to the Discworld series, and scifi of all stripes as well. I'm developing my cooking skills at a glacial pace, but anything is an improvement over the mushy stirfries of yesteryear. I speak a couple different languages to varying degrees of "conversational" and sometimes get stuck on a word and can't remember the appropriate English one. I'd be really into meeting any other linguaphiles (whether the language you love is English or otherwise)!

Reading books is sexy! Trying new things is terrifyingly amazing! Pie is the best! Walking upright is hard! Canoeing is fantastico! I love camping! I fail at color coordinated outfits! I win at making expressive noises with my face!

I am genderqueer, not that Okcupid has an option for that. Although my body is coded by the world as "female," I have no internal sense of being a man or a woman - I am a person. I would appreciate not being referred to with female-coded nouns (girl/woman/lady/mistress). If you just treat me like a person, we should get on fine.

Random facts: I wrote my senior anthropology thesis in college on alien cultures in science fiction novels. I volunteer at the Oregon Zoo. I have SO MANY colored Sharpies.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work at a nonprofit that provides community inclusion services for adults with developmental disabilities. It's awesome. I love my job, and plan to do it for several more years while I figure out the wheres and whats of graduate school, and the where and what of organic farming education as well. Or possibly planning a launch-off into social science research/activism abroad. Or here. Or translating some constellations into an address and going through a stargate. Whatever.

Ideally I'd like to be spending more of my life snorgling (and snogging and snuggling) a special human or two.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
misplacing stuff, and displaying common courtesy. Also crafting feminist tweets, dancing even when everyone IS watching, and adapting to the linguistic norms of any given group of humans.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Not a dinosaur. =(
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Booooks: For Whom the Bell Tolls, anything by Terry Pratchett, CJ Cherryh's Faded Sun series, Dautcher's Down a Narrow Road, anything by Oscar Wilde, and more books then I could possibly come up with at the moment.
Currently Reading: The People's History of the United States, White Queen

Advice column: Captain Awkward

Movies and Shows: Stargate, Condorman, the Princess Bride, The Fifth Element, and Velvet Goldmine are my top five most watched movies.
I love Farscape, M*A*S*H, and am working my way through all of Star Trek (currently in the middle of Deep Space Nine).

Welcome to Night Vale - my favorite podcast bar none. The live show at Lewis and Clark was AMAAZIIING.

Music: I like to listen to stuff. Lots of stuff. I can be quite lazy about finding new music, so I treasure people who will actively introduce me to stuff. If I like you, I will actually try your recs without being coerced.

Food: apple cider (not the alcoholic kind, though I like that too), WAFFLES, pesto and heirloom tomatoes, bacon, pineapple.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Knitting supplies, fluffy blankets, thumbs, my hedgehog, my battered copy of the Hobbit, and noms.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Political fuckery. Twinkle lights. Identity. Tea. Xena the Warrior Princess. Sunshine. Books. Things far too complicated to make a pithy blurb.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sleeping. I work on Saturdays, what can I say? On my "Friday" nights, which are Saturdays to you, I try to be at parties or making them. I have variable levels of success.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I was twelve, I once saw Shel Silverstein in a coffeeshop on Martha's Vineyard. Or rather, I saw a sketchy-looking dude with a huge beard and a baseball cap who gestured me over. When I went outside to avoid him, a woman nearby ask me if I had gotten his autograph...Sorry, Mr. Silverstein.

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should message me if you want to go on cheap Portland adventures, and you like humans who pretty much say whatever they're thinking. If you can enjoy very spicy foods and walk ridiculous distances even when other options are available, just cuz, we will get on pretty well.
