Spooky scary skeletons send shivers down my spine.
I analyze and contemplate everything, constantly, which means I also space out or daydream a lot; I live within my mind, and it's awesome in here, man. You don't even know.
I'm a shitty and vaguely lazy third-wave intersectional feminist and LGBTQ supporter.
I'm really into The Legend of Zelda series. Like, scary into it. I've had, and will always have, a huge crush on Zelda.
I'm definitely probably not sarcastic at all.
I lead way too many sentences with 'I,' so if you like borderline narcissists, I'm your guy.
My Myers-Briggs thingy is ENTP/ENTJ depending on my mood and whether or not Aries is ascending in the 10th house of I totally know what I'm talking about.
I enjoy drawing tattoos on myself, especially when I tutor kids. As of writing this, I have several physics equations and a rational equation proof on my forearms.
I am a massive cinema nerd. My favorite director is David Lynch, and I've more french surrealist films in my top 10 than is healthy. If you want talk about Surrealism (french or otherwise), prepare for a fun night.
I have a terrible sense of direction/spatial awareness, and you'll find it hilarious until you want me to meet you somewhere. What’s more, using a brilliant mixture of zen navigation, Aristotelian logic, and pure rage, I can assemble all the necessary ingredients to get really fucking lost.
I'm also transcendentally good at checking my privilege.
How tall I am. Being tall isn't all it is cracked up to be. You have to get all your shirts tailored and they never have your shoe size in stock, and people are always asking you to reach for things.
I am not Bill Murray ;_;
Besides Neuromancer, Douglas Adams, and all things H.P. Lovecraft, my favorite stories involve heavy symbolism (Tale of Two Cities, Lord of the Rings), stories within stories (e.x. Arabian Nights, In the Night Garden by Catherynne M. Valente, The Name of The Wind), or unreal amounts of cleverness (e.x. Good Omens). Also Frank Herbert's Dune.
My favorite books that aren't works of fiction either involve humor or very interesting conceptual musings (more on this later... maybe).
Princess Bride, all the Kubricks, Velvet Goldmine, Anything starring Elijah Wood or Directed by David Lynch and/or Joss Whedon. When trying to think of a movie besides Princess Bride, my mind keeps telling me to write down "The Room," but I wont tell you that I like "The Room." I wont.
Besides the obligatory good shows, I also enjoy watching amazing, glorious, soul holocaustingly bad movies and shows. I watched 3 hours of 'Toddles and Tiaras' with only half a bottle of Jameson. Shows I think are good are as follows:
Dr. Who, Scrubs, MST3K, Deadwood, The Walking Dead, The Wire, Girls, Homeland, Twin Peaks, House of Cards, Arrested Development, Suits, The Daily Show / Colbert Report, Parks and Rec, Community, Archer, Spartacus, Supernatural, American Horror Story, Peep Show, Breaking Bad, Arrested Dev, Seinfeld, Orange is the New Black

Whether someone with the unfortunate name of Nick Beard would grow up to be a gentleman-powered MRA supervillian or open a line of below-the-nose haircare products.
I don't trust people who can comfortably take selfies when other people are around.
Makes me cry every time.
