My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Game Design, Science, Cooking, Cycling, Walls of Books, Kink. Read below for details.

I'm now in Madison! I love how much flatter this city is than Bloomington.
TL:DnR version:
I am a feminist polygeek. Meaning both that I am a geek who is poly and I am a geek who has a broad range of interests. I'm a gamer, mostly table top, and a cook. I love to read, and have been catching up for lost time since I left grad school. All sorts of new favorites.. My sense of humor is sometimes obscure. I'm looking for people to go out with and to stay in with and to fill all the days with fun and laughter and late night discussions. I'm looking first for friends. If anything else comes of it? Awesome! But if not? New Friends!
Also, if you want to play a Parsley Game, I have at least one on hand all the time.

" And when things get tough, this is what you should do.

Make good art.

I'm serious. Husband runs off with a politician? Make good art. Leg crushed and then eaten by mutated boa constrictor? Make good art. IRS on your trail? Make good art. Cat exploded? Make good art. Somebody on the Internet thinks what you do is stupid or evil or it's all been done before? Make good art. Probably things will work out somehow, and eventually time will take the sting away, but that doesn't matter. Do what only you do best. Make good art.

Make it on the good days too."
-Neil Gaiman

Geek with nerdish tendencies (as me about my spread sheets). I love science and science fiction and fantasy, and all of the things.
I love games. I love playing them, I love developing them. I have a reasonably large collection of rpgs, board games, and video games. My room is full of bookshelves, and they spill over into the rest of my house.
I'm both outgoing and a little shy. I love being with groups, but I am not always aware of all of the standard social cues, so I often sit back and watch new groups of people for a while so I can figure out what the local mores are.
I'm poly and kinky and a switch, all of which feed and are fed by my love of play and exploration. I am an active feminist, an aficionado of models of consent. I trust early and often and perhaps too much, but the alternative is too terrible to be considered. Trust and you might be betrayed. Don't trust and you betray yourself. I love words. I love talking. I love listening. I love conversations that stretch out into the early hours of the morning.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to figure out what to do next. I am looking for more people to walk through life along side. I'm seriously considering starting to dye my hair again soon. I miss emerald green hair. I am a year-round cyclist. I spend a lot of my time designing games. I don't sleep as much as I should.
I just got a new camera, so I currently take lots of pictures.
I am switching my diet to one lower in sodium and learning all sorts of new recipes on the way through.
I'm kind of turtling up because of the winter. I still go out, but as a cyclist, when it is below freezing, staying in and making pretzels is appealing.
Current projects include:
A lightweight table top rpg.
Working on a Moon Colony Worker Placement game.
Being published for the first time (Wayfinder Magazine #12)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a synthetic generalist. I do my best work when I am making new connections between fields.
I am told I am good at massage and that I have a calming presence.
I make friends with animals quickly.
I am a very good cook.
I'm improving my craft at painting little figurines for games.
I'm a good Game Master
I'm good at looking through the inconsequential trappings and finding the core. Not always so great at the part that comes next.
Cuddling. I am apparently warm and cuddly. I can live with that.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hair is very short.
My headphones are big (I break the little ones. If you see me with my head phones on, feel free to "interrupt".)
I'm probably on a bike.
My shirt is almost certainly emblazoned with something geeky.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Diet Coke
My Laptop/Tablet
My RPG collection
My Bike
My Bag of Holding.
A good IDE/Game Prototyping kit
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Working on game design. I spend all of my free time thinking about, well, game design and programming. And what it would be like to have a job with set hours each week.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Making dinner and playing games with friends, either Pathfinder or boardgames. Good food, good friends, good beer. And a bunch of funny dice.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Ooh! I thought of one. I don't drive. I have a license, I keep it up to date, but I haven't actually driven a car since I was 18. One of these days I should probably change that.

I tend to be withdrawn with new groups of people at first. I'm not great at figuring out social dynamics on the fly, so I like to sit and see how a group interacts before taking too active of a role. So if I am quiet, I'm having fun, I'm just trying to make sure I don't mess up anyone else's fun.

I love the word "boink" for all things sex. It isn't that I don't like all of the other words, but "Boink" is full of laughter and joy and happiness.
