My self-summary
I come off as bookish (people literally come up to me on the street and ask if I'm a librarian) but I also like to rock the Alice Cooper impression. I'm close with friends and family. I like a variety of loud and quiet in my life. I'm optimistic but not evangelical about it.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in school for social work and I'm writing a horror novel. I used to work in publishing.
I’m really good at
Making shortbread. Halloween costumes that make small children cry on the subway. Being a daughter and sister. Eating shortbread. Summarizing without spoiling.
The first things people usually notice about me
My uncanny resemblance to Rutherford B. Hayes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like a nice mix of fiction and non. Favorites recently have been Karen Russell short stories, Rabid: A History of the World's Most Diabolical Virus, Sailor Twain, Last Days. Perennial favorites: Antoine du St. Exupery and Beryl Markham (Aviation memoirs=the best), A.S. Byatt, The Crying of Lot 49, The Count of Monte Cristo, The Little Friend, That Old Ace in The Hole, Look at Me, The Robber Bride, A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again, My Family and Other Animals, The Code of the Woosters.

Look man I guess comics are their own thing: Tintin, Brian Michael Bendis, Elektra: Assassin, David B., Leela Corman, Los Bros, old Plastic Man.

Alien, Silence of the Lambs, The Big Lebowski, Drive, Miller's Crossing, John Carpenter's The Thing, The Tall Guy, The Princess Bride, Royal Tannenbaums, Manhunter, The Blues Brothers, Charade, Singin In The Rain, Yojimbo.

Cheese, toast, cheese ON toast. Banh mi. Ramen. Those dates wrapped in bacon things. Homemade cookies.

Pictures! I like to look at those too. Egon Schiele, John Singer Sargeant, Thomas Eakins, Diane Arbus, The Wyeth Dynasty, J.C. Leyendecker, Howard Pyle, Lisa Hanawalt.
Six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The Jesus and Mary Chain
On a typical Friday night I am
I live in a neighborhood with a ton of my friends, so there's usually a quiet beer to be had, and I love living in New York where I can go to the Rubin for free after 6 and get a cocktail and look at some Himalayan art or see some improv or go to Arthurs for live music even if it means I will be trampled a little bit. I love all the weird theater to be had. I got to see that outdoor Henry the V at Governor's Island last year and run screaming across the field pretending to be the English army in Agincourt. That maybe wasn't typical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a burial plot in the same cemetery as H.P. Lovecraft.
You should message me if
You are looking for a serious-style romantic relationship with someone and you are kind, happy, kinky, and good at making pancakes.
Desperately uncool on OKC I'm sure, but that's what I'm looking for and as long as I'm wildly oversharing about other stuff, I might as well be clear about what I want.
The two of us
