-Orientation is set to Bisexual, but I guess I identify as Queer because I don't believe that stuff is binary. It's not terribly important to me.
-If you have an ounce of homophobia or transphobia in you, please, do not message me. Intersectional feminist who's still learning.
-I enjoy reading, drawing, and writing.
-Very little bothers me. I am patient and even-tempered.
-My grumpy cynicism is occasionally overshadowed by my (occasionally embarrassing) child-like wonder.
-I used to run a local Rocky Horror cast in Long Beach, and I've been a part of the community for about twelve years.
-If Space Oddity comes on, I will stop what I'm doing to clap in time to the song.
I just made a list of what I feel are my best traits, and it only included eight bullet points.
Also, I described my best traits in bullet points. Yeesh.
My current goal is to become an advocate for children at 504/IEP meetings.
I live in a wonderful city surrounded by the most interesting area I can have the opportunity to explore. I'm trying to take in as much as possible.
I also try to go on nightly adventures, which at the end of the night often just means a walk, but on other nights it means exploring.
Telling dad jokes.
I've also had a streak of grey hair since I was 3. It's spread quite a bit since.
I probably would not have made it through high school without Kurt Vonnegut. I love F. Scott Fitzgerald and his Lost Generation. I just finished Margaret Atwood's MaddAddam trilogy and loved it. My partner introduced me to The Shadow of the Wind, which is a beautiful book. I'm currently reading The Three-Body Problem, at the recommendation of a few friends. Next on my list is to either re-read Neuromancer, or begin A Confederacy of Dunces, which I've been meaning to read for a while.
Arrested Development. I don't watch it with other people, because I'll quote along with it and I know some people don't like that.
I also enjoy Parks and Recreation, Bob's Burgers, and 30 Rock. Stranger Things was incredible, and I want more. I watch a lot of cartoons, like Gravity Falls and Steven Universe.
The Great British Baking Show is like a goddamn syrupy coma. I lost a week of my life watching it and drinking tea.
Top five films in no particular order:
-Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
-The Triplets of Belleville
- Young Frankenstein
Crank: High Voltage is a fever-dream of a movie. I'll do my best to convince you to watch it.
I've seen The Rocky Horror Picture Show more times than I'd care to count.
Almost anything and everything The Marx Bros. and specifically Groucho Marx have ever done.
I'll give pretty much anything a chance, but I can't guarantee I'll like it.
I have a wide range of taste in music and will usually give anything a chance. Current interests include Talking Heads, Dead Kennedys, The Cramps, Dead Milkmen, The Ventures, The Beach Boys, Bryan Scary, The Smiths, The Magnetic Fields, Man...or Astro Man?, Miles Davis, Charles Mingus, Queen, Crystal Castles, Shpongle, Hallucinogenic, Nouvelle Vague, Joy Division, Sex Pistols, Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention, and a LOT more...
Also; Weird Al, obvs. I cried last time I saw him perform.
1) A good book
2) A nice cup of coffee
3) A comfortable couch to read on
4) Art supplies
5) A second book, either in my bag or car.
6) My good luck tiki.
The time I dropped acid at Disneyland?
I work the extremes in that regard.
I can also moonwalk, but only while I'm drunk.
I cried at the last Weird Al concert I saw. Don't judge - it was incredible.
-You're cool with beards.
- You like to go on adventures.
