I kind of hate online dating. Making a "pitch" for yourself seems really unnatural to me, and I'll probably come across horribly. Hell, I probably have already. But, here goes:
I'm an outgoing person, always up for fun. This can be general "going to bars" fun (not much of a clubber), but a lot of times it's more bizarre things (Foamhenge in Virginia, for instance... if you haven't been to it, it will change your life.) I'm a pretty good writer and ashamed that this summary is not more poetic. I'm a woman of varied interests. I love weird and quirky museums, roadside attractions, etc. I get really into pretty much all holidays. I'm a secret fascist when it comes to the English language. I take pictures of everything. I have a problematically large collection of children's books, (as evidenced by my username, which I chose forever ago and apparently can't change.) I was obsessed with Betty White before it was cool. I think of myself as the lovechild of her character on Golden Girls and Liz Lemon. A dream of mine is to one day play a ghost on one of those TV shows where they re-enact people's personal ghost stories.
(Also, I haven't looked at my answers for questions since I re-activated my profile last month. I have no idea what I said. I can't read peoples' questions because they're too black-and-white and make me too quick to judge, I think.)
And, as corny as it sounds, I'm a very good friend (or so I've been told.) Family (not necessarily just in the "blood relative" sense, but having lots of people close to me that I care about and support/get support from) is very important to me.
...Also, cramming as much stuff as possible into a suitcase and still having it pass regulations. This is a talent I've realized only recently.
If this is a roundabout question of asking what I think my most stand-out feature is, I'd say... well, probably my eyes. Everyone says that, but I have weirdly pale eyes that people often ask are contacts. I'd like to say it's my personality (I'm pretty outgoing and good at making friends, which is why online is a little weird for me and I probably come across rambly and insane), but, let's be real, who notices personality first anymore? :p
Movies - Harold and Maude, O Brother Where Art Thou, The Man Who Wasn't There, Roxanne, The Baxter, Vertigo, Shadow of a Doubt, Strangers on a Train, anything Mel Brooks or Christopher Guest. I love comedies, terrible 80s and 90s movies, horror (not necessarily gore) and especially awful slasher flicks. I also never get sick of The Addams Family movies or Hocus Pocus, and it's more or less mandatory that I'm with someone who appreciates A Muppet Christmas Carol and the splendor that is 1983's Sleepaway Camp.
Music - Most of the music I like can only be considered terrible and would not be out of place at a gay club in 1994. In fact, I'm not sure any guy I've been interested in has ever NOT mocked my taste in music. But I also like classic rock and classic crooners (Dean Martin, Peggy Lee and the like), and I LOVE Irish folk. Oh, and David Bowie!
Shows - Bob's Burgers is the only thing I make it a point to watch that's on now. Also: 30 Rock, most crime shows, those paranormal shows (but only with the ridiculous re-enactments!), and, as evidenced from my opening paragraph, I'm an unabashed Golden Girls fan.
Food - I'm oddly picky about certain things, but also up to try most new things. A paradox, I know. Also, as blasphemous as this is and as scared as I am to admit it off the bat, I don't like most types of cheese. I know, I'm a communist.
This is a true story.
Adding even more insult to injury, the priest's beer pong partner was my father.
…and you can quote 30 rock.
But, most importantly, that your message will sound like a human wrote it and not a spambot.
