My self-summary
Women of Portland: I have AC in my room and a very good cat. Let's play a board game and cuddle in front of a Nicolas Cage movie if you're into it because I wouldn't have proposed meeting you if I didn't think you're attractive.

I inherited a shoe box full of clean but otherwise unusable (as socks) socks from an odd Portland dude who was [living?] in my house three years ago. They, minus the dude, have followed me since to two subsequent houses on something between a token and an auspice of future usefulness. Other than a short dynasty of shoe polish appliers, the promise lay dormant, which I can relate to.
One day recently my cat peed the bed and most of those socks dutifully went to their pee plus pure rice vinegar-soaked doom. This made me feel powerful, so I named the remaining socks (Horace, Horus, Horse, Ross, Chandler, Chris, Lucie, and Ghost Sock) with the intent of then using them to clean up the vomit my cat had vomited just then. But PK cleans her own vomit thank you very much, so the Fated Eight lie vigilant, named, though the cat took over their shoe box. It made me think about how different I might be with absolute power. I might write a song about it, but don't get too excited: my last big burst of musical energy resulted in this SoundCloud account.

I'm going to talk more about my cat, because she's great. Her name is PK and she has no qualms about making out with humans. If she were a human, she'd rock sweat pants with high heels, and Joss Whedon TV shows would be her intellectual tolerance threshold. For real though, she loves Angel. I love her and forgive the moderate degrees of urinated-on she inflicts on my belongings.
What I’m doing with my life
I work at Powell's, which makes me exactly as cool as you think it does. I'm learning to play the keyboard for real, and slowly getting back into making video games. I play tabletop games but not nearly as often as I'd like. I spend a lot of time being inspired by my friends. I don't have a car but I have a Car2Go account I haven't used in roughly a year and I can cook. I would consider being in a band with you but try to be accommodating to what a self-conscious wreck I can be.

If I were writing a book it would be a tale of erotic science fiction but last I checked I don't actually enjoy writing fiction.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I recently spent hours looking at websites about gemstones and their practical/supernatural qualities to pick a proper Crystal Gem avatar for myself: crocidolite. That it is the most hazardous form of asbestos is entirely incidental but you had better believe that I and my Steven Universe watching partner (I did not do this activity by myself!) worked it into the design of our fusion. Yes, I've drawn my gem.

-Roseanne is the best sitcom
-Samurai cinema from the 50s/60s
-Music made by primitive computers or people from other countries on acid
-Pop food history?
-The Chris Gethard Show
-Sci Fi, Fi in general. I popped when Yukio Mishima was in one of my favorite samurai films, that brilliant fascist fuck of a mensch*.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The comforting fact that all values are arbitrary. My privilege and how to use it without touching it. How it's been too long since I last did mushrooms. How to confront my roommate about all that pee on the toilet seat (don't worry there's other cleaner toilets in my house).This board game I'm trying to design.
On a typical Friday night I am
Practicing keyboard if I know what's good for me.
You should message me if
You don't mind that I mention pee four times and vomit once in this profile.
