I'm married. We're poly. I feel I don't have to explain this what with it being the 21st century and all.
To be extremely clear, I'm not looking for a unicorn. But if you have not yet seen "Space Unicorn" on Youtube, you should drop everything right now and go watch it.
I love Pike Place Market, especially in the early morning before the crowds appear. The market has the best Bavarian meat shop and it has the only crumpet bakery in Washington that I know of. If you want to make a date to eat crumpets, drink tea and then stop for Weisswurst, let me know.
I play Pathfinder. I like table-top RPGs. I used to work for the company that makes Dungeons & Dragons.
I like the zoo. I like great apes. As a kid one of my heroes was the Gombé chimp named Michael because he was the smartest chimp in the rainforest. Seriously--he took over the whole chimp tribe just by banging a couple of metal water jugs together. He was a chimp evil genius. I totally wanted to grow up to be like him, except with less fur. I feel that I have come near to succeeding. Especially with regards to having less fur. Which is good because that would, you know, be scratchy and uncomfortable otherwise.

I spend a lot of time thinking about the fall of civilization. It's a bit of a hobby. I rather enjoy end-of-the-world myths.
I love burlesque and cabaret. Sometimes on Friday, I'm out at the Can Can Cabaret. Sometimes I'm at another of the many, many shows going on around town.
Or you should message me if you really, really think you'll hate me and feel like getting into a passionate argument about something over email, like politics or history or philosophy.
