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
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.

I like Zeppo
You should message me if
Why the hell not?
