My self-summary
Hello, internet. I'm currently looking for new friends and possibly more in the area. I've lived in IL all my life, with a few random jaunts south. Recently moved back from Florida and am thrilled to be back in the Midwest! (Great to visit, I promise you you don't want to live there.) I'm starting over here, close to family, but still far from where I was raised. There's not much there that is promising for me. I really need to add new people to my life as well. I'm at the age where a lot of friendships or relationships fizzle due to joining the big bad world.
I suppose you could say I present myself better in writing than I do verbally; I wrote my first short story when I was four (ok, ok, you caught me, I dictated it to Mom, but then, James Joyce dictated his works). I never really stopped. I have had numerous online journals of the sort that you forward to your friends, if I do say so myself, and I did briefly attend Columbia College for fiction writing before I ran screaming in terror toward an institution that was actually capable of finding my student files rather than using them to roll joints, or whatever it was they were doing. I have tried on various majors and professions and am currently searching for the one I like best before going back to college to finish my degree in something that I hope is a bit more marketable. I love college and always wanted to finish; yes I know I'm a nerd. Medicine is another one of my passions, and at the moment, nursing is looking like a viable option, though I might be a bit more like House.
I am sarcastic with a dry sense of humor and a joke about everything, but it's all meant in good fun, and I poke fun at myself as often as I do anything or anyone else. I have been known to burst into song in the shower, create bizarre art projects, and debate history with people in book shops. I enjoy the arts, and history, and the occult, and am a sucker for a good bottle of chartreuse and a conversation that makes me think. I am a self-admitted bibliophile to the point of addiction and my books are a dominating presence in any dwelling I inhabit. As is my Pekingnese, Zen, who loves everyone, especially if they have socks she can eat.
I am sort of a pagan leaning toward athiest, but don't care what you are as long as you don't inform me I'm going to hell or inquire if I intend to dance about naked in the forest. I might, but it would have more to do with alcohol than my religion. ^^
What else can I really say for the moment? I love movies and music, my tastes are all over. I enjoy getting to know people, and once I consider you a friend, I am fiercely loyal. I am more than willing to get out of bed at three in the morning and come be your shoulder to cry on or a ride home because you were in a car accident. I've had a confusing, complicated life, but I'd like some new people to participate in this odd dance.
I am poly-amorous, and while I live with my long-term boyfriend, he will allow me to play and even to date outside the relationship. This applies mostly to females, but the right man will be considered as well; and no, he won't be included in it unless you want it that way. I am a member in good standing of the fetish community, but it isn't essential to a relationship. Please consider a friendship if this is uncomfortable for you, I prefer to be up-front and don't wish to make anyone unhappy in any way.
What I’m doing with my life
As previously stated, I'm looking at going back to college. I loved it, and won't be satisfied until I have my degree. In the meantime, I'm also job hunting, which is a waking hell I'd not wish on anyone. Hoping I find something soon.
I’m really good at
Writing. Drawing. Unnerving complete strangers. Finding odd websites. Making you think. Stumbling over things that are in plain view.
The first things people usually notice about me
You won't notice me. I'm a ninja.

That depends more on the other person than me. I could say my hair or something and have someone sitting there going "Well, no, I'm looking at the DD cups, der her her". Actually, they probably notice my eclectic wardrobe (I've been known to wear dusters, period fashions, gothy stuffs, and jewelry I make myself) or the fact that I always have a book.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Choose a favorite book, bah. Why don't you ask me which star I prefer. I love Anne Bishop, Laurell K. Hamilton, Francesca Lia Block, Stephen King, Christopher Moore, Elizabeth Wurtzel, S.L. Viehl, Dave Barry, Robin McKinely, J.R. Ward, Kelley Armstrong, Dorothy Parker, Dorothy Allison, and Richard Kadrey. There are just so many authors and so many books I adore, just ask. As for Rose Red, Willow, any of the Python films, RED, LOVE the Boondock Saints movies, No Strings Attached, Notting Hill, Zombie Strippers, Burlesque, Pathology, Practical Magic, the Crow, Ghostbusters. I don't get cable but I liked Royal Pains, the CSIs, Law and Order SVU (and all the others), House, Two Broke Girls, and the Big Bang Theory. As for music, Rammstein, Lady Gaga, Everclear, Elton John, Ozzy Osbourne, Emilie Autumn, Barenaked Ladies, Adele, Nicki Minaj, etc. And food, well, I'm all over, but I'm an Italian/ Irish gal and a lot of my food tastes reflect it.
Six things I could never do without
A book, a cell phone, my MP3 player, something to write on and with, my computer, and a shower.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think about a lot of things. What I might want to read. Did I pay my phone bill. What would occur if zombies attacked, and would anyone notice, or would they just think Walmart was having a sale? I'm pretty random. Ask me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Getting chewed on by my puppy. I haven't had a lot of time to be out and about lately, given that whole I-need-a-job-thing. I have money, but not so much that I can be out being Ke$ha. I'm new here, too, so I'm still getting my residence organized.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was a kid, I really wanted a honey badger for a pet. I can't remember where I got that idea (probably too much time watching Animal Planet) but I thought he could be my friend. My mother said absolutely not. Sometimes I'm still sad about it.
You should message me if
You want to? You have something interesting to say? You can use proper English and don't think 'like' is the be-all, end-all of adjectives?
The two of us
