My self-summary
Taarnagh is female, therefore a creature of paradox. She's cool-headed and sometimes hot-tempered. Silly and serious. Dignified and dorky. The list goes on. She's also quite funny, is fond of laughing at herself as much as at you. She can read and she's kinda cute. Also she's curious like a cat/loyal like a dog.

I am quirky, emotive, and flippant.

Mostly looking for conversations of interest, some kind of connection. I crave discovering the bonds, as well as what we don't have in common. How much can we disagree and still get along? Can we learn from each other? Spark each other? Spur growth? I truly believe that the moments that are shared with others are what we are here for. I know it's what I'm here for.

This year has re arranged a lot in my life. In many ways I am starting over. This, plus probably the age factor makes me more emotional these days as well as far too thinky and much in my head, continually trying to deconstruct what/where these emotions are coming from and how they may or may not serve me.

I have recently developed the new habit/hobby of kickboxing to deal with the paradox of too many emotions while being too analytical. This seems to be ushering me towards a little fitness obsessive. (I said a little) And reminding me that I like healthy things.
What I’m doing with my life
Running from one imagined mid-life crisis to the next. Ya know, living it. Finding my way. Learning to accept others for who they are. Shaking off old dogmas, looking for new ones. Dancing in the streets (particularly when it's raining) Gathering words, shaking off dust. Doing my best.
The latest mid life crisis seems not to be as imaginary as others, but I am here, in the thick of it, living it, figuring it out. Attempting to let go of the control complex and focus on the next good thing to add to my life.
I’m really good at
Counseling my counselor friends. Seeing you, for who you are. Filling in the blanks. Making fun. Emulating animal behavior.

"I aim to misbehave"
The first things people usually notice about me
I can't know what people notice about me. I assume it is my outspoken ness. A lot of the time people laugh at what I say when I am not being funny, just honest. Honesty seems to make a certain percentage of the population laugh nervously.

Recently I received the best compliment to date, I was told I am soulful and witty. This I will take and hope you notice it about me first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books are good, favorites are hard, haven't read as much recently as I used to. Kinda like science fiction and fantasy. Things that make me laugh but what makes me laugh?
My new favorite author (who recently released her 2nd book) is Jenny Lawson aka the Bloggess. She made me laugh out loud at every paragraph. I've got one thing to say here: "knock, knock motherfucker". Google it. It is a taste of what I find funny.

Movies, geez, movies. There are good ones. Anotonia's Line, The Secretary, Strange Days, Pulp Fiction, Serenity, Incident at Oglala, Slingblade, The Dark Knight, Chaos Theory, God Bless America, Jesus Camp, Y Tu Mama Tambien, Waking Ned Devine, my taste runs the gamut.

Music, how about I'm like just everyone else and tell you my musical tastes are ecclectic. Music genres themselves have become so bizarrely defined, how can any of us not be ecclectic? How!?! I ask you. (That little bit right there, the use of a question and exclamation mark together, I just learned it's name. It's called an interrobang, nifty, huh?)

I have been corrected! By a child, no less. (what are the children's doing looking at me? *shrugs* ) At any rate..._technically_ an interrobang is a combination of the exclamation and question mark, however, as I told that little whipper snapper ;), THAT is not a typical symbol one can find on a keyboard, so I'm sticking to my original story, while giving you ALL the information you might need so you don't spread any misinformation because you believed some chick you don't know on OKC. Now, back to your regularly scheduled programming...

Basically, I want it to have a beat and be at least an 8 on the danceability scale. Mostly. Sometimes I like it mellower. But usually not.

Food, sushi! Or at least it used to be sushi, since I've moved to the mid-west mostly I just miss sushi. I like vegetables, raw and cooked. Indian-ish food, Ethiopian food. Also, I love breakfast and dessert and ice cream and garlic mashed potatoes. mmmm food. Though I recently gave up gluten 'cuz my body said so.
The six things I could never do without
notebook, moisturizer, lip balm, writing utensil, dictionary, safety pins. Except I always forget the safety pins, so I guess I can do without them. Which is probably good because my dog is probably needing to be on this list.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How the hell I got here and where the hell I'm going.

The varied ways in which a person can start a conversation with me and leave me utterly uninterested. I dare you to be interesting. C'mon, I know you have it in you.

And why people think because they stream a show they can get away with saying they don't watch teevee.
On a typical Friday night I am
Thinking about my Monday morning. As in my work week starts on Saturdays typically. Though, as every other evening I am also probably at the dog park with my new first love, my puppy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It wouldn't really be private then would it. Here's where the paradox comes in. I'm an open book really, I'll tell you just about anything, but I'm also really secretive, so you have to take the time to ask.
You should message me if
If you think you can ask the right questions. Or if you just want to talk. Though hello, hi and how are you are non starters for me. There is an awkwardness to these greetings online from a stranger that freezes me in the silence of the phrases and leaves me delete, delete, deleting.

Also, read the quote below before you message me.

“‘Oh, screw beautiful. I’m brilliant. If you want to appease me, compliment my brain.’”
