My self-summary
*deep breath*

At some point, one just accepts that the dating pool after 40 is a stagnant pond with a bloated animal carcass floating in it alongside a half submerged shopping cart from Giant and that the best we can all hope for is that our beloved pets don't eat us once we die alone.

I usually put a lot of effort into making my profile show what a special little snowflake I am, but I'm in back to school mode so life is a flurry of bulletin boards, laminating, endless paperwork, and late nights in my classroom.

If you don't get that I'm just being ridiculous at the moment and think, "Goodness she's so angry/bitter/etc!" then you may want to check your humor settings. Restart yourself and see if that helps. You're welcome.
What I’m doing with my life
I teach kids to read gooder, drive around my artcar, thrift shop for things I don't need, accumulate more books, cook when I need to, and try to have a life outside of teaching which usually involves power napping.
I’m really good at
Special ed paperwork, subversive craft projects, haphazard gardening and being way too honest.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not laid back. I'm animated, intense, iconoclastic, and tangential

...and irreverent, easily amused, indoorsy, inquisitive, and cautiously optimistic.

I'm a niche market and I'm totally fine with that. Not everyone goes for tall outspoken dorky white chicks.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
History of any kind (that goes for books, movies and TV)
bacon and/or chocolate
Celtic music, The Pogues, The Smiths, and Kate Rusby
The six things I could never do without
coffee, air conditioning, books, my reading glasses, squishy pillows, and sunscreen
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Cat memes.

Next summer's trip to Scotland

Why so many people on here have a profile picture of themselves at Machu Picchu.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out in the local Barnes and Noble moving all the bibles to the Fantasy section.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I met Lewis Black at a book signing and I told him that I wanted to have his angry baby.

I have an evil twin on here.
You should message me if
...you hate fun.

...you love ellipses and the oxford comma as much as I do.
