Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Obligatory disclaimer: except for my sense of humor, my mental age
is about a thousand years old. I'm a single mom and my life isn't
mine to throw away on nonsense. You don't have to have adulthood
figured out to be my friend, but successful adulthood is my goal
and it'd be nice to have that in common with more people.
I like staying in and watching movies or playing games. That's not
to say I'm not active...well, I'm not tremendously active, but I
love hiking and I'd like to find some people who are into rock
climbing and don't mind that I can't belay them.
I want to have friends again. I want to talk to people and have
them respond to what I say instead of just waiting for their turn
to speak. I want to find more of those precious few people who
don't suck and get to know them better.
I want friends who make me my best self.

I like fantasy, humor, satire, and particularly interesting
nonfiction. Despite being no longer in the Young Adult age range, I
also like a lot of YA sci-fi and fantasy. The authors I return to
again and again are Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett and Tamora Pierce.
I like to hand out my Discworld novels and try to get other people
Awful movies like The Room make me so damn happy. Otherwise, these
days I mostly just watch comedies because I'm short on time and
brainpower. I think older Mel Brooks stuff is awesome, and Monty
Python movies make me happy. Recently, I've been wanting to watch
more documentaries, and maybe even stuff that's supposed to have
literary value. Since 30 Rock finished its run I've been watching
television only when I'm doing something else that isn't
distracting enough. I think New Girl is the sitcom equivalent of
popcorn: even though it's insubstantial, its consumption is still
Everyone dislikes the music I like and I hate pretending to care
about everyone else's musical tastes, so I have staked out my claim
to a musical micronation: when the conversation heads that
direction, I cling to my rock of bad taste and no one recognizes my
existence. It's awesome, because then I can go back to playing
games on my phone instead of feeling compelled to pay attention
when I have nothing to contribute to the discussion.
I'll try any comestible once unless it has a carapace.
Mediterranean is my favorite type of cuisine, but Italian food is
uber-comforting. And while I don't like seafood, there's no one
kind of food I completely hate. I DO strongly prefer vegan food,
especially vegan entrees. Meat's just boring by comparison.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family, caffeine, baba ganoush, the complete series of Daria on
DVD, books, and stimulating conversation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Cake songs, and how well they lend themselves to critical analysis.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Trying desperately to catch up on everything I should've been doing

I have an unhealthy obsession with words.
