My self-summary
I have a boyfriend(Perturbatio). He's really shibby and gives me the warm and fuzzies. We're practically engaged, both poly, and don't mind sharing, but please don't insult us both by disrespecting his presence in my life. I also have kids. No. I don't want you to be their father. They have one (see first line) and he's quite good at the job. You probably won't even meet them unless you make that good of an impression.

Still here?

If so, allow me to introduce... me.
I'm an example of why people say "watch out for the quiet ones." You know, the type that is buttoned up and straight laced at work and then one night you go to a bar and see them dancing on a table? Yea... that's me... kind of.

I'm an anime fan and have been since I was a child. I like comic books/manga, blasting music while cooking, dancing around my home in my pajamas, and frozen fruit. I play video games, but I am definitely not a gamer. In fact, I tend to suck at them. Exceptions to that rule include music games like Rock Band and puzzle games.

What else could I tell you about me...? I'm a dominant leaning switch. No, I don't want to submit to you, your S/O, or a few of your buddies. I'm also on fetlife. What name I go by on there is reserved for those I actually click with or those with a genuine interest in the community. I hate being bored. Absolutely hate it. I'm a history junkie (Ancient to Renaissance), love languages (even if I can't speak them), and prone to wearing skimpy outfits just because I can get away with it. Depending on who you ask, I've also been described as awesome, bossy, rude, bitchy, amazing, insane, ditzy, responsible, and "the mommy figure".

I'm mainly here for friends and play partners, but I am not averse to seeing if things go beyond that. I can be a little standoffish at first, but I generally give people a chance to say hi and chitchat. If you manage to make it past the initial phase of conversation, I'm pretty chatty. If you don't, it means that your approach set off the red flags of doom. The red flags of doom mean that your idea of a greeting bored me, made it clear that you didn't read my profile, or set off the creeper alarms.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, learning new things, making new friends. During my free time I'm either writing, reading, playing Rock Band, watching tv/music videos, or just hanging out with my friends.
I’m really good at
Baking! I love baking for my friends. I also make a good pot of beef curry, yummy fried chicken, and cheesy omelets.

Going on for hours about history. Get me started and I'll go on until I either exhaust the issue or go hoarse.

Organizing things. Some of my organization techniques make sense to me and only me. Even the messy piles of notebooks, paper, and books on my desk are organized in some way.

Being a mom figure.

According to many classmates and co-workers, hiding my dark side.
The first things people usually notice about me
Physically: That I'm black. Apparently if I didn't have pics on my profile, many people would assume I'm some other ethnicity. o_O Once they meet me in person, my hair and my natural blessing in the chest area are the usual thing.

Personality: I almost always carry reading material and something that plays music on me. A few other friends said they noticed that I talk about sex a lot. I usually keep that reserved for group outings with people I know don't mind that kind of thing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am a rabid fan for Laurell K Hamilton, Anne Bishop, Dennis McKiernan, Emma Holly, Yasmine Galenorn, and Sandra Hill. My reading roots are in comic books and Fantasy a la Mercedes Lackey, Patrica C. Wrede, Andre Norton, and Simon R. Green. Overall, if it's fantasy or romance, I'll at least glance at it. Literary fiction (read non-genre fiction) tends to be touch and go. I read historicals when I can get through them without grumbling about what the writer got wrong. I've also been known to read non-fiction books on Medieval Europe (which makes sense considering I'm a Medievalist in training), royalty, and whatever happens to have caught my fancy at the moment.

Music: This confuses people sometimes. My radio is mainly set to rock stations. My favorite artists/bands include Madonna, Def Leppard, Nine Inch Nails, Shinedown, A Perfect Circle, Paula Abdul, Beyonce, Billy Joel, Michael Jackson, and Queen. I have yet to find a genre of music where I do not like at least one song. Yes, this includes Country, dubstep, World music, and Christian.

Movies... Among my favorites are Labyrinth, Pan's Labyrinth, Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Red Eye, and Hello! Dolly. I really like old-school musicals a la Rodgers and Hammerstein, but you're more likely to find fantasy, sci-fi, suspense thrillers, dramas, anime, and music video collections on my DVD shelf.

TV: Once Upon A Time, The Tudors, Weeds, Archer, Metalocalypse, South Park, Family Guy, Morel Orel, Game of Thrones, music video blocks, stand up comedy, Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, documentaries,

Food: Chocolate! Pizza, shrimp fettuccine alfredo, Bar-B-Que, my grandmother's collard greens, and Chinese food.
Six things I could never do without
Music, books, pillows, hot tea, chocolate, and anime.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life, music, and cute, fluffy kittens...

Seriously though, my thoughts can be pretty random. If my mind isn't tuned to its own internal radio, then I'm planning out a story idea I had and hoping I don't forget it by the time I get back to my computer.
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm not finalizing plans to hang out with friends, then I'm curling up with a book, watching tv, playing a game, or baking. Plans with friends could mean anything from playing a board game, catching a movie, or going dancing. It all depends on which friends and what we're in the mood for.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a sucker for cats and stuffed animals. I avoid pet shops because I get depressed that I can't take all of the animals home with me.

Edit: If you noticed that I've visited your profile multiple times within a day/week, it means that I'm interested and trying to think up a greeting that isn't just "Hi, I like your profile." I prefer to send something that's going to potentially start a conversation.
You should message me if
1) You actually want to contact me. I don't put much stock in the "Someone chose you!" notifications. I figure if you're interested, you'll message me.

2) You want someone to collaborate on a writing project with you or need someone to proofread your work.

3) You understand that "Bi, Poly, and Kinky" does not mean "will automatically jump into bed with you."

4) You know that TNG is not only a reference to Star Trek and know what that other reference is.

5) You got more than female, boobs, and kinky out of my profile.

If you have no problem with any of that (or the rest of what's in my profile), feel free to drop me a line (read: actually contact me - a message, or an IM. I'm not going to wade through who knows how many Quick Matches to figure out who gave me a high rating.)

For a faster response, include three things about my profile that caught your attention (female, boobs, and kinky are not allowed).
The two of us
