My self-summary
"I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity."
---
Quirky, clever, and cute. Adherent of the Oxford comma. There's a lot more to me than than most people would guess. That's because most people don't pay attention.

Intellectual curiosity and kindness are two of the most valuable traits a person can have. And good calves don't hurt.
What I’m doing with my life
Being an atheistic infidel heathen. Spending my weekends at art/music shows. Or an out-of-town convention/event. And sewing.
I’m really good at
Reverse engineering.

Calming people.

Details.

And...

...suspense.

----------
What I’m bad at:

Making first impressions.

Fighting.

Taking a hint.

----------
What I’m bad at but enjoy anyway:

Bowling.

Playing the accordion.

Dating.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Museums/galleries, dive bars, conventions (of just about any kind), meetups, MST3K, audiobooks, podcasts, rodeos (yes, really), philosophy, game night, firing range (I'm no pro, but a damned good shot), live performance, Borderlands (Brick 4 Lyf!), debates/lectures/demos, road trips, motorcycles (I do have one), estate sales, sewing/crafting/making, writing (I'm a periodic writer at an arts/entertainment blog). In no particular order; take your pick.

I enjoy thinking and being challenged. By "challenged," I don't mean "fought with." I mean "have you considered it this way?" I live for that "oooohhhhhhh!" moment. I'm comfortable admitting when I don't have enough information for an opinion; I'm also comfortable admitting what my gut tells me, but that's probably not the hill I die on.

My favorite movie is "A Clockwork Orange" and my favorite band is the Buzzcocks, if that helps.
The six things I could never do without
At least one of my sewing machines.
At least six of my fingers.
At least two wheels.
At least one quart of water.
At least 85% of my IQ.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How difficult it is to be funny in these profiles. I'm a big fan of comedy, and laugh my ass off on a regular basis—and sometimes make other people laugh theirs off, even. But for some reason, that's impossible to do here.
On a typical Friday night I am
Lately, I've been spending Fridays in with a cocktail and Xbox, but it all depends on what's on my calendar.

But let's talk about ideal nights.
You should message me if
...you like snarky women who make oblique references and are lousy at smalltalk. (1: I'm fine, thanks! 2: Yes, I'm single, and that means single not "separated," not "open," not "it's complicated." 3: No, I haven't had any "luck" here, whatever that means. 4: What I'm "looking for"—eventually—is monogamous dating.. 5: Yes, I'm going to hold it against you if you ask me any of those questions, since I just answered them. Try harder!)

AND if you know what compromise means and aren't a giant baby.
