My self-summary
Kind of brokenhearted after my marriage fell apart. Looking to slowly find the world again.
What I’m doing with my life
I am on a journey, the destination of which isn't the point. What makes it much more enjoyable are the companions I've gathered along the way.
I’m really good at
Listening, puns, writing, hula hooping, and caring for others. Could use some work on caring for myself, though.
The first things people usually notice about me
My corporeal reality.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
For books let's start with Ishmael by Daniel Quinn (and the follow-ups). After that, I like a lot of Nancy Kress' stuff, Allen Steele, Neil Gaiman, Neal Stephenson, some Stephen King, all the HP stuff, and anything that makes me think. A good deal of fantasy, urban fantasy, and sci-fi, though other stuff sneaks in as appropriate. Great Gatsby has a special place in my heart, and Catcher In The Rye is almost a default... given the way my dad (the English teacher) loves it and the number of times I read it growing up so that I could discuss it with him. All of Jim Butcher's stuff is rad, too. (Do kids still say rad?) On the other side of the coin, most classic Russian Literature is crap, and I despise James Joyce. I also have a special hatred for Piers Anthony. Just pushes the wrong buttons for me (which is odd, given my pun love). Recently started reading the Koran in my spare time, because it's pretty darned popular, & I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.

Top movies? Fight Club, Moulin Rouge, Amelie, It's a Wonderful Life, and I Heart Huckabees. Bottom on the list (i.e., the worst movie I've ever seen) has to be The Scorpion King, though The Fountain was a strong pretender to that throne.

TV-wise, I don't watch a lot, but what I do is/was fairly good: BSG, Dr Who, ROME, Torchwood, Carnivale, Dexter, The Simpsons, Gotham, Daredevil, J.Jones, Walking Dead.

Music-wise, anything lyrically significant, though the radio's usu tuned to NPR. Also love 90s jams.

Food-wise, I don't like hot spicy stuff, and I can't stand sea food, but the rest is fine. I'm a type 1 diabetic, so not so much with the ridiculous sugariness, either.
The six things I could never do without
Cleverness, words, laughter, communication, honesty, and... um... maybe points of ellipsis.

Actually, forget the last one, I think I'll go with community instead. I've tried living alone before, and I've been in places where I've been isolated from people for reasonably long periods of time... and it sucks. I can't stand it. I need meaningful discourse, and I need to be connected to other souls.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Puns, words, and cool linguistics stuff. Seriously, I could probably entertain myself for a good long while with little more than an old dictionary. I also do a fair amount of writing, so make-believe worlds take up a decent chunk of my time, too. Lots of roleplaying, too (mostly tabletop).
On a typical Friday night I am
probably running a Magic tournament at the comic shop (my 2nd job).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wish there were some Slytherin who weren't 100% evil, because I'd like to identify with more of them.
You should message me if
If you're a dinosaur. Ever since I was 10, I've thought dinosaurs were cool, so it'd be pretty awesome to get a message from a dinosaur.

Or if you're a firespinner, hooper, writer, roleplayer, dancer, punner, Simpsons fan, or any of the other things that might show that we have similar interests.
