I like bunnies, ice cream, sewing, staying up late, singing karaoke, taking walks at night, and ordinary things that come in pretty colors. I enjoy reading about both science fact and science fiction. I'm the kind of person who can get lost on Wikipedia or TV Tropes for hours. I dislike coffee, cell phones, and hot weather. I spend a lot of time just thinking, and I never have the problem of having nothing to do. I consider myself neutral good and INFP, if either of those things mean anything to you. My friends tell me I'm compassionate, funny, and insightful.
I would describe myself as poly-compatible; that is to say, although I don't personally maintain multiple simultaneous relationships, I don't require exclusive sexual and romantic access to the women I date. I'm not romantic, like, at all — If you're dating me, you'd basically be dating the woman in this video... but being more-or-less aromantic doesn't mean I don't value friendship in a partner. Quite the opposite, in fact.
There's more I could say about myself but we need to leave something to talk about in person, right?
You're next most likely to see me on the roller derby track striking fear into my opponents. As of last year I made it onto the international-level charter team which has been a super-exciting experience and forced me to step up my own game.
Also I do a bit of volunteering for a local nonprofit. Spreadsheets and stuff. Nothing glorious but it's a good fit for my skills, so that's where I try and help out.
I am, for the time being, migratory. Madison is where I make my home for most of the year, but I escape from the summer heat by scooting off to St. John's, Newfoundland. These days it's only for a month, I'd love to be there longer but that just doesn't work out with the other things going on in my life right now.
Books I like: Hitchhiker's Trilogy, Song of Ice and Fire, LOTR, Contact, Kingkiller Chronicle, Harry Potter, Gödel Escher Bach, Stormlight Archive, The Man Who Counted, Le Petit Prince.
Movies I like: Serenity, Scott Pilgrim, Lord of the Rings, Mulan, Contact, DOA, UHF, Star Wars episodes IV-VI, Better Off Dead, Crouching Tiger, D.E.B.S., Juno, Dark City, The Princess Bride.
TV shows I like: Firefly, Steven Universe, Gilmore Girls, 24, Buffy, Daily Show (and its offspring), Gummi Bears, Robot Chicken, Arrested Development, Doctor Who, Broad City, Warehouse 13.
Music I like: Rasputina, Halestorm, Lindsey Stirling, Apocalyptica, KT Tunstall, Nightwish, Leslie Hall, Lily Allen, Alanis Morisette, Queensrÿche, Weird Al, Little Boots
Comics I like: Strangers in Paradise, Lumberjanes, Squirrel Girl, Rat Queens, Buffy
Sports I like: Roller Derby, Volleyball, Skiing (downhill and cross-country); watching Hockey or anything Olympics (especially Winter)
Foods I like: Bacon, tacos, poutine, burgers with ridiculous toppings... don't judge. Indian, Thai, and Mediterranean food are also thumbs-up. And tea is yummy.

Soft and cuddleable things
• You're the kind of person willing to make the first move (I'm kinda shy)
• You're comfortable dating someone who has a lot going on in her life and won't always be able to make you her number one priority
