My self-summary
Liz Lemon seeks Shawn Spencer for laughs, love, and lots & lots of ice cream.

I am creative, a Jedi (in training), and not so hot at filling out online profiles…in case you can’t tell. I am dorky, but I'm not a dork, if that makes sense. When I’m not training on Dagobah or in the holodeck—I go both ways (it's a bi joke, get it?)—I love travelling, quirky restaurants, bumming around the city, craft beer, hunting down homemade peppermint stick ice cream, writing, making things, hanging with friends and fam, and taking FAR too many pictures. Particularly of vanity plates.

Aside from (or maybe in conjunction with?) the dating thing I'm looking for a guitarist/fiddler to be part of a Irish pub duo with me. If you're interested, hit me up!

I am Creative, Quirky, and Dichotomous.
What I’m doing with my life
I work, I play, I comb the city for peppermint stick ice cream and Moxie—just like everyone else. Instead of detailing my daily life, here’s a list of awesome facts about me:

I love arm warmers.

Pottermore sorted me into Gryffindor. Just sayin'.

Movie scores are my favorite genre of music.

I like ice in my milk and my orange juice. Haters gonna hate.

I like the smell of skunk. I have no justification for this.

My sense of style is a bit eccentric. I'm good with whatever your style is, as long as you HAVE one. Wal-mart jeans and XXL gamer tees do not count.

My favorite word is consanguineous. My second-favorite is extirpate. My least-favorite word is phony. It will not endear you to me if you use it in a message.

I find the word "non-conformist" slightly terrifying. It makes me imagine psychotic paratroopers bursting through the door in an attempt to capture me and prevent the spread of my insidious ways. For the same reason I find it fairly exciting.

I have a mild, irrational fear of my cell phone being lost, losing service, and/or running out of batteries. Thanks, X-Files.

...seriously, every time their phones fail alien motherships descend and Scully ends up getting molested and impregnated with alien spawn. No thanks.

I am often complimented on my facebook updates. Yeah, weird right? But seriously, check it out: "Your posts are some of the few that don't make me want to vomit all over the person who wrote them." Awesome.

My favorite form of matter is amorphous.

My favorite font is Tagettes

Turn-offs:
People who like playing devil’s advocate for fun
People who list the Bible (or any religious book) as one of the 6 things they cannot live without
Republicans
Religious zealots
Smokers
Bigots of all kinds
I’m really good at
Writing, singing, painting, and boasting about myself, evidently. I'm also great at bullshitting, and at giving advice.

Actually, I'm very, very good at catching fireflies. There's a trick to it...I'll tell you, but only if you tell me something equally awesome in return.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, my height, my sense of humor, my murderous attitude, and my odd faces. In that order.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: There are far too many to list...a few are: Sherlock Holmes, Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Peter Pan, The Once and Future King, the Secret Life of Bees...stuff by Susan Cooper, Edgar Allan Poe, Angela Carter, Watership Down, Cloud Atlas, Wuthering Heights, Dune...and tons more. The Little Prince is my favorite book of all time.

Music: Movie scores, U2, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, Katzenjammer, The Decemberists, Josh Groban, Sarah Brightman, David Bowie, BROADWAY!, 40s music, The Rat Pack, Nat King Cole, Hans Zimmer, John Williams, Gyorgy Ligeti, The Misuse of Muggle Artifacts Office (did I mention that I'm dorky?), Ben Folds, Queen, Savage Garden, Christmas music...and pretty much anything else other than country.

Movies: The Princess Bride, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Ever After, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Oblivion, Cloud Atlas, Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, Amelie, Stardust, Pan's Labyrinth, the FIRST Matrix, Silence of the Lambs, ANYTHING with Gene Wilder, Pixar, Brazil, Labyrinth, Pirates of the Caribbean, 101 Dalmatians, Robin Hood (also animated), Robin Hood: Men in Tights...etc...

TV (Yay OK Cupid for finally adding this!): Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek, 30 Rock, Sherlock Holmes with Jeremy Brett, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Futurama, Psych, Firefly, Family Guy, The Daily Show, Law & Order, the X-Files, Criminal Minds, the Pretender, Looney Tunes, South Park, Seinfeld, and Moonlight.

Food: Does alcohol count? If not, frozen strawberries, chocolate, pizza, ice cream (especially peppermint stick!), and Moxie.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Pretty much everything. I may be thinking about something as simple as my favorite song, or I may go into the effects of delayed birth on our society as a whole. Also movie references. I have an unhealthy obsession with movie references. Actually…references in general. And I’m generally singing/whistling.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out with friends or relaxing at home. I mean seriously, how many other answers are there to this question?

I’ll tell you what I’m NOT doing…I’m certainly not out saving the world. I’m NOT fighting he-who-must-not-be-named, combating Nazis in a fedora, facing down Moriarty, or exploring the fire swamp. Who, me? Never.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I take the match percentage on here much more seriously than I probably should. I'm also super judgey about your grammar...it doesn't have to be perfect, but know =\= no and their/there/they're are different things. Sort it out.

Also, I have a TERRIBLE short-term memory…except when it comes to song lyrics, and movie quotes.

Anyway, I'm more or less an open book...I've been told that I don't have much of a filter.
You should message me if
If you've ever wanted to try this just for the yololz, if you're interested in being the guitar/fiddle half of a duo singing traditional Irish pub songs (yes, I'm completely serious), or if you aren't completely terrified after reading through this lot.

Frankly, I’m not really a white picket fences and 2.8 kids kinda gal. I don’t want a love like Edward & Bella, mostly because they’re both annoying as hell, but also because having a sparkling significant other would be really inconvenient at the beach. Long story short, I’m not in this to be swept off my feet. Fairytale love is kinda bs—which is why they always gloss over the rest of the story with “and they lived happily ever after.” What I really want is a full-time friend, an adventure amigo, a beer buddy who wants to wake up every day and decide that I’m the Han to their Leia, the Mulan to their Shang, the Gred to their Forge. You be Rose, I'll be the Doctor. Or you be the Doctor, and I'll be Rose. Or we can just be each other's Captain Jack Harkness and call it a day. And on the topic of being swept off your feet, I’ve always pictured myself more as the sweeper, not the sweep-ee.

Let me reiterate: you should NOT message me if you're racist, homophobic, in the military, or answered anything other than "no" to the question "should evolution and creationism be taught side-by-side in public schools?" Super serious. I'd much prefer to date someone who is atheist/agnostic.

Also, no couples. You're poly or looking to spice things up that's fine, but DO NOT WANT. Now quit messaging me.

If you're smart, cute, funny, atheist, and quirky, email me. Now.
