My self-summary
I'd like to find someone to go out and do awesome stuff with like checking out museums, seeing shows, going to garage sales and eating delicious, delicious brunch.

I am into a lot of geeky/nerdy things like comic books, video games, and science fiction movies. Oh, also robots. Robots are the best. I love learning new things, and can help you kick ass at trivia night. I am a progressive, bleeding-heart liberal, and I like to keep abreast of politics and social issues. I am a cat person, and can be easily distracted by adorable pictures of kittens. (I also love dogs, too, don't worry!)

I caught the Pokemon Go fever that's going around; anyone up for some pokemon hunting in the city?
What I’m doing with my life
I'm looking to start a career in writing, especially short stories for YA readers. I'm also interested in writing for video games, especially in merging storytelling and game mechanics. I'm currently working in media monitoring and writing in my free time, of which there never seems to be enough. On the side, I make geeky crafts that I sell online, I recently designed a teeny Star Wars cross-stitch pattern that is my favorite thing I've made so far.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh, talking about anything, remembering random trivia and playing games (board games and video games, that is.) I also design my own cross-stitch and sewing patterns.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm always smiling. I also currently have very long, very red hair. They might also notice that I'm bouncing around excitedly debating something with a friend.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Ooh, favorite things, I like this part:

I play far fewer video games than previously, although I'm getting back in the swing of things! I have an Xbox 360, which is my little friend. Right now I'm playing through Dragon Age 2 after finishing Inquisition (who said you have to play games in order?) Some favorite games are Fallout 3, Animal Crossing, and Katamari Damacy.

My favorite writers are Toni Morrison, Madeline L'Engle, and Terry Pratchett. The book I always reccomend to everyone is "Good Omens" by Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. I also read (and write) a lot of children's literature, especially historical fiction.

My favorite movie is "It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World" and I also love "It's a Wonderful Life". My favorite more recent movie is "Wall-E."

For favorite television shows: I currently don't have cable, so I couldn't watch even if I wanted to! Streaming shows on the internet is lovely though, and Netflix is good for older shows & anime. I'm currently watching Elementary, the Flash, House of Cards, and Star Trek on it. (I finished DS9 and am working my way through Voyager now)

As for music: I listen to 8tracks and Pandora radio at work, and I've found that it expands my musical choices while also making me get sick of the songs I used to love! my favorite band is Electric Light Orchestra, but I'm currently on a 60's rock kick. I really don't consider musical choices much when I look at other people's profiles, so I'm not sure what people are looking for here!

My favorite foods are homemade chicken soup, pancakes, cheese, kettle corn, nectarines, pumpkin bread, corn dogs, carrot juice, chestnuts, and delicious delicious pie.
Six things I could never do without
Breakfast, my computer, kittens, the snooze button, my IPhone, & crossword puzzles.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Fantastic flights of fancy, fictional universes, friends that are far away, fandom, feminism, family, favorite faces, fallacies of logic, futurism...

Other things that might or might not start with F
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with my friends, talking, eating, and playing games. Or I might be staying up late messing around on the internet. Or I might be out with coworkers or at a Broadway show. Or I could be meeting you for dinner and an adventure in the city. Who knows?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My cat is famous on tumblr.
You should message me if
You share my interests and are interested in a cute geeky girl.

Also, if you enjoy a night of gaming, and talking about just about anything. If you want someone who has opinions on just about everything, from the most trivial to matters of philosophy or politics. If you want to just be lazy all day, or go on a wild adventure through the city. If your idea of "going shopping" involves mostly toy stores and dollar stores. If you enjoy finding treasures at an estate sale. If you like telling stories, or just hearing them, and if you like imagination.

If you want to message me, but can't think of what to say, consider answering one of these questions:
-If you were a superhero, what would your powers be?
-If you could only listen to one song for the rest of your life, which would you choose?
-Which video game world would you most like to live in?
-What is the best robot?
The two of us
