My self-summary
Let's see... I'm 32, New England-er born and bred. That means white, uncertain, well spoken, and well meaning. Not that you can't be other than Caucasian and be from New England... I just haven't met anyone who's been here for *counts on fingers* Like, six generations and isn't white. Anyway. I'm weird, I'm a geek, I'm employed, I have a condo, a cat, a dog, and a roommate. Any further questions? Ask me.
What I’m doing with my life
Not as much as I'd like to be doing, but in the long run I'm doing okay. I have a house, I have a job, I have friends whom I love, family that supports me, and I know more or less what's going on.
I’m really good at
Being just this side of bizarre. Not the "What the hell was that!?" kind of bizarre. I don't stroll about in neon green spandex and a fright wig. I'm just prone to say stuff that seems to make sense only to me, and perhaps a very select number of people. Not that I'm socially backward, exactly... I just read a lot, and nobody I'm forced to socialize with does.
The first things people usually notice about me
Fat chick! Run!

Seriously? No idea. I am heavy. It's pretty obvious. Wearing a slimming hat does nothing to hide this. I'm heavy. Always have been. Probably will continue to be.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books? I like the kind with words in them.
Seriously though? I'm a voracious reader. I like a broad range of things, though my absolute favorite series is by a blessed man named Terry Pratchett. But I'm also fond of David Sedaris, Christopher Moore, Bill Bryson, Charlaine Harris. The list goes on.
Hmm... movies. Movies. I like anything with a plot I can't pick apart too thoroughly. I really love high budget animated titles. Go Pixar! Woo, Dreamworks!
Music? It's... best not to go into it. My taste is to sum up, bizarre.
Food? Well... I don't know. Anything that tastes good (see fat chick references). I tend towards down home stick to your ribs food, as that was what I was raised on, and what I instinctively know how to cook.
Six things I could never do without
Oxygen. It's a poison! But I neeeed it. To oxygenate my blood.
My iPod. It's my chief source of entertainment. Because I listen to:
Audio-books. I really don't know why people are prejudiced against these, but they really, really are. Confusing.
The internet. Where else would I find audio-books I can afford (namely, free ones)
Friends/Family - These folks get lumped together into one group. You know who you are!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time filling my head with noise so that I don't have to think. Though lately I've been drifting dangerously close to "self-help" waters. Nothing Tony Robbins like, but I'm doing a lot more "reading" about human nature, and how people (in general) are programmed to be as irrational as hell. Our motivations are never obvious (including to ourselves) and our society isn't really built to culture our better natures. This isn't society's fault, as it's made up of the same people who don't know what's good for themselves, much less everyone else. Using intuition, while fun and easy, is rarely a good idea in the long run, and unfortunately, since people are no longer encouraged to think or work hard for themselves, is being used against us. Our intuition is telling us to consume, and we do. Ad infinitum, leading inevitably to dissatisfaction, credit problems, and weight issues.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm doing one of the following things: Cleaning my condo, knitting, watching Netflix, or playing on my computer. Usually some amalgamation of all of them at once.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't like wearing dresses because they -all- make me look fat.
You should message me if
You want to. If you like intelligent conversation, want a girlfriend who will adore and take care of you, and if you like Siamese cats.
The two of us
