My self-summary
I enjoy the absurdity of life. I am easily amused. I have a knack for telling bizarre stories. I am starting every sentence with the word "I" and I usually don't do that. I'm sorry.
What I’m doing with my life
Kicking ass, taking names, and then forgetting those names because I didn't write them down.

I'm a copywriter for a retail website; I write about toys, mostly. I own a metric fuckton of books (this is how they would measure the weight of my books in Europe or Canada). When I can persuade myself to sit down and focus for long enough I occasionally draw comics.

And, I'm pretty involved in lefty political activism. It's my thing. I have no illusions that any one group has all of the answers to fix everything that's wrong with the world, but it makes me happy to try.
I’m really good at
Writing, editing, being a shoulder to cry on, giving unwanted advice, storytelling, reciting dirty jokes, backing up radical political opinions with well-researched fact, Galaga, and karaoke ("Common People" is my jam).
The first things people usually notice about me
If you're a fan of the librarian look, then baby, you're in luck! (Really, I'm not sure how I wound up not being a librarian.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I have A LOT of books. Runs the gamut from a serious graphic novel collection to some serious political theory to a lot of silly trashy junk I've found at thrift stores.

Music: Belle & Sebastian, Jellyfish, The Posies, Gorky's Zygotic Mynci, The Smiths, Elliott Smith, the Zombies, Of Montreal, Nick Drake, the Lucksmiths, the Dead Milkmen, the Descendents, etc. I'm not as into the local band scene as I used to be, but I can generally find something cool to go to in a pinch.

TV: Total cartoon fiend. Adventure Time, Steven Universe, Venture Bros, Archer, Simpsons, Bob's Burgers. Plus Buffy.

I also really enjoy coffee with whiskey. In the matter of fact, I'm drinking coffee with whiskey RIGHT NOW.

(Right now is 2pm on a Saturday, when I'm writing this, not 2am on a Wednesday when you're reading this.)
The six things I could never do without
Shenanigans, tomfoolery, nonsense, absurdity, insanity, and a thesaurus.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why is it that guys keep writing that they're looking for "a partner in crime," but then when I suggest sticking up a liquor store for a first date, I never hear back?
On a typical Friday night I am
Either in the bars, or eating cars with the man from Mars. Only now, I heard that the man from Mars has stopped eating cars and eating bars, and now he only eats guitars. How is a girl to keep up?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There's only one way I could possibly be less interested in Crossfit and other obsessive fitness regimens: I would have to actually be dead. Actually totally dead.
You should message me if
You can make me as happy as this song does:
