My self-summary
If you are looking for a supermodel blonde, you have clicked the wrong link. However if you want a cynical busty brunette with an almost encyclopedic knowledge of random shit you are in the right place.

No, I am not Daria Morgendorfer, my face is too expressive.

I'm a writer, a fighter, an adventurer, and a nerd/geek. (I use both words interchangeably. Is this wrong? Probably. Do I care? Not so much no.)

I also enjoy spirited discussions about movies, books, tv shows (though I no longer have access to cable), politics, art, music, religion...okay I'm really only not interested in Reality TV shows at all. I have enough reality in my life. But I am an HGTV addict and know my way around a drill.

That's about it.

I'm a dabbler. I dabble.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to finish my goddamned science fiction novel. The way the world is reacting, you'd think I'd run off and joined a commune. *rolls eyes* No I do not write in coffee shops. It's too loud and people keep interrupting me. I write in bars, it is far more peaceful.
I’m really good at
I would like to say that I'm really good at writing, but as I have not yet sold a book that would seem a bit well, pretentious, and we can't have that. Pretentiousness is very unattractive, I've been told.

I can cook reasonably well, but only one dish at a time. So as long as you don't mind the veggies coming about 15 minutes after the main dish, sure I can cook. Also I have as a souvenir from an ex-something or another: a series of odd dishes that sound like they shouldn't go together, but surprisingly do. You should try my infamous mac and cheese.

Talking. Except when my brain launches ahead of my tongue, and I end up trying to say three different words at the same time. I keep forgetting my mouth is not actually designed to do that, and that's not how English works. But it's hilarious so that's okay.

I can also make up lyrics to songs when I forget the words. I can be very convincing, so remember to call me on it when I get it wrong.
The first things people usually notice about me
How would I know this? Is this a thing people tell you? Should I be telling other people this? Hello, (insert name here) it's nice to meet you, I noticed your (blank) as you entered the room?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Oh, oh dear. I hope you have a lot of time on your hands because I could talk about books, movies, shows, and food for ever. I generally don't talk about music, mostly because I'm really bad at names of bands and I know one day I'll say the lead singer of Motley Crue is really the Lead Singer of Iron Maiden and then will be summarily executed by the masses.

The Quick and Dirty Book List:
Stainless Steel Rat-- Harry Harrison (the last of the Hard 70's scifi.)
Moveable Feast- Ernest Hemmingway (not a huge fan of Hem in general, but have a soft spot for this one.)
The Kingkiller Chornicles--Patrick Ruthfuss.
Something Wicked This Way Comes--Ray Bradbury
Sacramouche by Raphael Sabatini (actually anything by this man).

Favorite Films of the moment that I am writing this:
Mirror Mask
Knight's Tale
Princess Bride
Captain Blood
Kung Fu Hustle
Midnight In Paris

TV Shows:
Lucifer (Because I was a huge fan of the comics, and the show is wrong in all the right ways.)
Currently catching up with some anime.
Property Brothers

Also Comics:
Books of Magic
Swamp Thing
House of Mystery
Let's just say Vertigo anything.
Six things I could never do without
Friends, Fighting, and Feasting. Also Books. And Movies. And a notebook--oh and also a pencil. Wait, that's seven. I guess I don't really need to eat...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The stories I'm working on. My friends, you know what they're doing, if they are well, if they are sick of me yet--that kind of thing. Movie plot holes, far too much time on movie plot holes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Winter: Staring out the window wishing it were warm so I could go for a walk.

Not winter: Probably out for a walk. Or am out having a drink with friends. Or Gaming. Or going to a late showing of a kids' movie after eating a ton of ice cream, because I am on a continual quest to make my inner 10 year old jealous.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that after I have had about three drinks in me, I know the secrets of the universe and will tell anybody them. So long as they ask the right questions. Yes, I turn into that mysterious cryptic dues ex machina character at the beginnning of every quest. They had to come from somewhere.
You should message me if

-You have broken a bookshelf because of the weight of the books you squeezed on to the shelves.
-You stay up to ungodly hours of the night so much so that it might be an ungodly hour of the morning...
