My self-summary
I am woefully inept at self-advertisement and feel nearly compelled to respond to these questions with playful sarcasm and bashful self- abasements despite the obvious futility of irreverence in such a forum. Ahh, how attractive I make myself sound! You see? Compelled.

I'd rather be myself than talk about myself. I feel like I could rattle off personal facts continuously without ever really conveying a sense of who I am, or more importantly, how I am. I imagine the same is true of you. Nevertheless, we have to start somewhere.
What I’m doing with my life
So, I’m a SoCal native—raised in LA, undergraduated in Santa Barbara, and got a masters in medieval English lit. (so applicable!) down in Irvine. I was working on a PhD, but put that on hold for the time being. I'm currently teaching at a school for children with moderate-to-severe developmental disabilities. It's often exhausting, but I really love it- easily one of the most emotionally rewarding things I've done.
I’m really good at
The first things people usually notice about me
I dress like a Victorian street-urchin.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV- deadwood, rome, The Daily Show, You Bet Your Life

Music-jungle, electro, folk, ragtime, celtic, bluegrass, sneaker pimps, the boss, the band, bjork, ... aqua
Some Movies- the seventh seal, o brother where art thou, duck soup

Some Books- brideshead revisited, the sun also rises, nightwood, the crying of lot 49, gravity's rainbow, pale fire, a brief history of time, the trial, the great gatsby, leaves of grass, the picture of dorian gray, anything by Joyce, joseph andrews... Oh yeah, and Chaucer, cuz he's f'n gangsta.
I have a profound and unapologetic loathing for every sorry, hate-filled word published by that gremlin Ayn Rand; just look at the number of indents required to ostracize mention of her from my faves.

food- bosc pears
The six things I could never do without
bath salts
tamales on Christmas
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Taming vicious circles
On a typical Friday night I am
Rummaging through my craft box.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
As a child I had an inexplicable aversion to bearded men.
On second thought it was probably seeded by my profound terror of Stromboli from Disney’s Pinocchio.

Pieter Bruegel gives me nightmares.

The Little Mermaid was the first film I ever saw in a theater, and it scared the shit out of me.
You should message me if
Why the hell not?
