My self-summary
I'm Jewish, a poet, queer, fat, and dedicated to my family.
I'm a vegetarian. I won't lecture you about meat eating if you don't make fun of my animal respect.
I love to travel, but don't often have the opportunity. I'm a voracious reader, and am working my way through 'the classics' I didn't get around to as an English major.
When I say I'm queer, it's a short way of saying I identify as a lesbian but am not willing to close myself off to people based on sex or gender. If I feel a connection, I pursue it, female, male, whatever. Of course, it means much more than that, but that's the cliffs notes explanation. Way TMI, I'm sure, but I'm just not that comfortable with the 'bi' label. (Yes, that means I'll date men.)
I'm a geek/nerd, a lover, a risktaker, and quite frankly, the very very best at my favorite activities. What are those? You'll just have to get to know me to find out.
What I’m doing with my life
My full-time job is pursuing health. I also do my crafts and study quite a bit.

I'm taking over leadership of a young-adult book club here in town sometime soon. I do some volunteer work with my congregation.

On a larger scale, I'm just trying to do more good than harm.
I’m really good at
Singing. Writing. Caring. Crafts. Cooking. Laughing- people love my laugh.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height, or size, I think. Others have said it is my accent, or my laugh, or my hair. I guess everyone notices something different.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
a- Borderlands/La Frontera by Gloria Anzaldua is the best book ever. Favorite novel? The Hours. Most frequently read book? The Torah.
b- Anything by Wes Anderson, & anything with Alan Rickman in it.
c- The Decemberists, The Dresden Dolls, Le Vent du Nord, The Avett Brothers, REM, Peter Gabriel, other awesome music from the eighties, and the mix cds my bff sends me with cool music I'd never hear otherwise.
d- Is there anything that can compare to a good plate of enchiladas?
Six things I could never do without
1. My dog (she's a who, not a thing!)
2. My embroidery supplies
3. My spectacles
4. My copy of Borderlands and the Torah
5. Face lotion with sunscreen- I'm Irish, for god's sake, I'll burn like a furnace!
6. My creativity- is that a thing?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
it sounds phony, but ethics.

I'm very interested in post-apocalyptic and dystopian narratives. (My current favorite is Adventure Time. I also really like Revolution. Obligatory rave about The Hunger Games here.)

I'm a fan of Steampunk, too.
On a typical Friday night I am
At Shabbat services, followed by dinner with my 20s/30s/40s group or some friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Here? I'm not a big fan of jazz. I know, I'm unsophisticated.
You should message me if
You like back rubs, dogs, feminist theory, Adventure Time or, well, pretty much anything. I like to talk.
The two of us
