My self-summary
My name is Erin. I'm 29 years old. I do a notably poor job at writing profiles. I recently moved to New York from Buffalo (also New York) and I am the head of a customer service team at an online education startup. I am high energy and always looking for new things to go out and do.

I love: watching horror movies (the more ridiculous the better), being a pirate, singing in the car, not wearing shoes, being contrary, cuddling, reading, arguing, learning, getting back massages, laughing, cursing in Gaelic, The Sabres, discussing history, guys who cook well, Cards Against Humanity, krupnik, tiger lilies, tea, going out for adventures with friends, thumb holes in comfy hoodies, flying spaghetti monsters, intelligence, burt's bees, karaoke

::I hate:: being bored, french braids, lima beans, intolerance of others' differences, Chucky from child's play, country music, the cold, calculus, cooking for myself
What I’m doing with my life
Being snarky AF, ridiculous, reading a whole lot, and drinking lots of craft beers for the moment.
I’m really good at
Literature, being argumentative, selecting gifts for people, and problem solving, to name a few.
The first things people usually notice about me
As "people," you are in a better position to answer that than I am.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite Books: I adore Goodreads because otherwise I would not even know how to begin to answer this question. I love anything Douglas Adams, Octavia Butler, Christopher Moore, and William Shakespeare have written. I am currently in 7 different book clubs and I don't have trouble keeping up with the reading for them. Listing all of my favorite books is impractical, so a few of my favorites from this year are:

The Monster Show: A Cultural History of Horror
If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor
Shylock Is My Name
The Dead Lands
Ready Player One

Favorite Music: U.S.S, Our Lady Peace, State Radio, Fingertight, Bad Religion, The Dirty Heads, M.I.A, Bosstones, Queen, Janis Joplin, The Pogues, Nirvana, Ani Difranco, Hum, illScarlett, Mother Mother, C2C, Lindsey Stirling, The Fratellis, Rancid, The Dollyrots, The Misfits, Amanda Palmer, Cherry Poppin' Daddies, Metric, Nine Inch Nails, Tea Party, The White Stripes, Big Bad Voodoo Daddies, Radiohead, No Doubt, I Pixies, Distpatch, Queens of the Stone Age, The Shins, Led Zeppelin

Food: I'm picky, but quite food-adventurous....I will absolutely try anything. I am partial to Ethiopian, Mexican (both authentic and tex-mex style,) pierogis, Indian, Burmese, and chocolate. I'm also an avid craft beer drinker and am particularly fond of stouts, porters, and saisons. I don't love IPAs, but sours have been recently growing on me.

Shows: Firefly, Game of Thrones, Arrested Development, Doctor Who, Sense8, Man in the High Castle, House of Cards, Walking Dead, The IT Crowd, Sherlock, Orphan Black, South Park, Adventure Time, Rick & Morty
Six things I could never do without
My Books/Kindle
My Wonderfully Comfy Bed
Interesting people to go on adventures with and/or have stimulating discussions with
Spiral notebook
External hardrive
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The end of the world and all possible post-apocalyptic probabilities.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out at the bars with friends or at home watching a movie/reading
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not a terribly private person about most things...if you want to know something just ask.

I think that I'd marry Charlie Chaplin if it were remotely feasible.

I have 0 intentions of upgrading my OKCupid account, but the one thing that might be able to persuade me to do so is to just get rid of the "Likes" notification bubble at the top of the page.
You should message me if
We share similar interests or very dissimilar interests.
