My self-summary
I'm Lilo from Lilo and Stitch.

I'm in a wonderful non-monogamous relationship. If that doesn't work for you: Thank you for visiting and you're welcome to press the back button at your convenience.

For those of you still with us, my particular brand of ethical non-monogomy is not putting undue limits on my relationships with others. If we end up being friends, that's awesome. If we are friends who sometimes makeout, that's cool too. It's like the graph of tan(x) where y>0. I'll let you extrapolate.

This puts it more eloquently than I could have myself.
What I’m doing with my life
Encouraging others to take chances, make mistakes, and get messy! Quite literally actually. I work with children from birth (fine, 6 weeks old) to three, teaching them how to be logical, helpful, and self-aware grownups while developing and maintaining their self identity. I will talk your ear off if you let me have any room to run. If I could be the Ms. Frizzle of Early Childhood Education, I would be.
I’m really good at
I can and do use the Oxford Comma exceptionally well. However, the perfect usage of colons and semicolons still elude me.

Setting extravagantly high goals then meeting them. I want to run a race. How about I run a marathon to start? I've run three since then. I want to be a teacher. Let me move across the country for undergrad, then move again and go to six more years of school, while working, to be a better one; even though I only needed an Associate's. I feel like two examples is enough for now.

I'm told I give good massages and cook a decent meal.

I'm also told I paint my nails really well.
The first things people usually notice about me
I smile a lot. My canines are pronounced enough that small children often ask me if I'm a vampire. I'm not. I swear I do not sparkle. *shudder* Nor am I a werewolf. If anything I'm a chupacabra.

I have two modes: "Hoodie" and "Shirt & Tie." I enjoy combining the two. The result is charming, yet casual. Like an office worker caught in the middle of the apocalypse trying to look less conspicuous.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite book in all the world is Click, Clack, Moo Cows That Type. Seriously. Go read it and tell me it's not awesome. I am on a mission to make audio books of the Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, His Dark Materials, and Grendel. Update: I'm through LOTR, Hobbit, and the first two books of HDM. I'd love to do a radio play style reading of something someday, foley and all.

Wall-E and Lilo and Stitch always make me cry toward the end. That's right, I said CRY. I'm not ashamed of my emotions. Ohana means family. Family means no one gets left behind or forgotten. If you don't tear up a little, I don't know that we can be friends. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is great because Tim Roth and Gary Oldman are a perfect duo. Ghostbusters. Need I say more? Fearless, because it's the best martial arts movie where martial arts are not the point. Night of the Living Dead, because Romero inspired my love of zombies. Lots of terrible horror movies like Mimic 3:The Sentinel because a good bad movie is hard to come by. I would like it on record that the special effects of The Relic still hold up better than some of today's blockbusters. Oh and The Incredibles.

Why is there only only one season of Freak Encounters!? It's the most hilarious show ever! A perfect combination of cryptozoology "documentary" and prank show. Cryptids are fun to think about. Doctor Who without a doubt. I get all tingly after seeing an episode. Ten was my first and is definitely my Doctor, though Eleven inspired my love of the series.

I love theater. I'd much rather sit in the balcony or the orchestra than on my couch any day. Phantom of the Opera was great, so was Wicked; but the top seat still belongs to Wildclaw Theatre's performance of A Shadow Over Innsmouth.

Indian food is all that perfection can be.

Gin Wigmore and Neon Trees currently.
The six things I could never do without
My cat, Haineko. We're a package deal.
My girlfriend. She's AMAZING! Also part of said package.
A nice shirt and tie. Maybe some pants too. Maybe not.
Sunshine. I'm from California, it's like air to me. Or crack. You decide.
A kinesthetic activity. Like running, climbing, swing dancing, or wind sprints with two year olds.
A garden and lots of plants. I tried going without once and my life was the poorer for it.

That's about it. I don't need much. Though I'd enjoy a nice single malt and a beach.

And apparently it's frowned upon to cross international borders without a passport, so that as well.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm INTJ and I definitely spend too much time thinking about everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Whatever happened to Saturday Night? When you dressed up sharp and you felt alright.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was thinking about this earlier, but I thought the prompt was "The most private thing I'm willing to share" and I had the great answer in my head of "my bathroom." Of all the things that are my private things, excluding my privates of course, it is the most private thing I am willing to share.
You should message me if
If you can get me into the anechoic chamber at Orfield Labs in Minnesota. That'd be cool.

Or if you want to jump on/over random objects then grab a drink (tea, chocolate, or the adult variation) and chat.

If you'd like to see some theatre or burlesque, that'd be cool too.

If you want to make out, but also want to make sure neither of us are assholes first.
