My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a genderqueer bisexual intersectional feminist. Unpack that for a second. We cool?

I'm a well-traveled linguist looking for new friends to go on adventures canoeing, pawing through bargain bin records, jamming on instruments we aren't sure how to play, karaoke, trying new restaurants and bars, dancing like we don't give a shit, throwback films at second run theaters, treating ourselves to hot tea, spa time at Everett House, and any of a thousand other indulgences.

Looking for people who are really into things I don't know about (comics? astrophysics? banjo? making tasty foods?) who want to share those passions, and who might like to share my passions for social justice work, knitting, scifi and fantasy novels, languages, anthropology, and swimming. Looking for people who complement me, not someone who is the same, and who wants to be complemented.

Do you like walking places when it's dry and not too windy just because? Want to go to a community center and swim? Shall we marathon a terrible wonderful TV show and snuggle? I'm into it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a job exploring Portland with adults who have intellectual and developmental disabilities - it's not the stuff of forever careers but it ain't half bad.

What comes next is something I'm devoting a lot of time to exploring, recently.

I've been to 18 countries in my life - the past 3 years in Portland is the longest I've lived in the same city since I was 13.

I live in a rad queer hippy communal house with 6 humans, 6 chickens, 3 cats, 1 hedgehog and 1 ball python. We build things, snuggle in giant piles, go contra or blues dancing, feed each other a lot, have shirtless pull-up "contests," and giggle an absurd amount.
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.

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). I loooove and am utterly terrified by NBC's Hannibal! Have you seen the season 2 finale?!?! Would you like to yell excitedly about it with me?!

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.

Ninja Turtle: Michaelangelo
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.

Lately devoting a lot of time and thought and reading to protesting the Ferguson grand jury verdict.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I often end up at comedy shows, throwback movies, queer events, friends' homes, or stay home listening to music and collaging.
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're pretty sure we could have a decent conversation and want to go out for a drink (coffee, tea, beer, wine, all good).

I'm pretty quick on the "let's meet in person!" draw, just to warn you. I prefer to meet up with the idea of "let's get a drink and see what we're like in person." If there's potential for anything (friendship, sex, romance, art collective, stealing a spaceship and forming a hippy moon colony) we can let each other know with our facewords and our fingertyping.
