My self-summary
I admire this man:

Also, my partner tells me that I should include this in my profile: I once made Orson Scott Card listen to rap.
He was pretty cool about it, but it wasn't his style. Not exactly shocking, I suppose.
What I’m doing with my life
I've been working a new job at one of the larger tech industry employers in the area, here, for about a year now. I'm so so so excited about it. I've spent two and a bit years before that building an engineering skill set at a job I didn't really enjoy, and this new one offers me a chance to use those skills on really neato stuff. Now I can say "oh, what do I do for a living? I keep The Cloud cool..."
When I'm not working, I do many things in varying degrees of nerdiness. I go to board game nights with my buddies, play some D&D now and again, shoot some pool, play some poker, cook things, read, play around with computers, go barhopping, and sing karaoke when I get the chance.
I’m really good at
When it comes to spoonerisms, man,
I'm totally slick.
As if compelled to like ballpoints,
I gotta dig Bic.
The first things people usually notice about me
My deep voice? I get some comments on it because it's a little incongruous with how silly I can be, I think. My voice is built for gravitas, not for talking about my upcoming The Fox costume.

Or my hat, if I'm wearing one. I have lots. Some are very silly, some are mildly silly, some are quite formal, and some are informal. The common thread among them, though, is that they're all snazzy. ^_~
Six things I could never do without
I dunno about *six* things, but, if I leave the house without my wallet, my cell phone, or my keys, I feel naked.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether the popularity of teratogenic adolescent terrapin assassins was a harbinger of the internet's coming trochee fixation.
On a typical Friday night I am
Recently, it's usually been some sort of social activity with my friends, a motley crew of queers and programmers. It's been mostly a mix of bars (especially gay ones), dancing (again, gay), house parties, and so on and so forth. It's a bland-sounding response, I guess, but I don't find the experiences to be so. ::shrug:: I suppose it depends on whom you're doing such things with.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well, here's some things that're hard for me to admit I've never seen:

Gattaca, Donnie Darko, Reservoir Dogs, Dogma, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Farscape, Red Dwarf, Amazing Spiderman 2, Iron Man 3, SW The Clone Wars, Original BSG, the last 2 seasons of newer BSG, anything past the first season of Buffy, any anime less than 7 years old, and 97% of things with the words "Star Trek" in their titles...

So, uh, lemme know if you wanna help fix any of that or something.
You should message me if
you think I seem interesting? I guess that's self-evident. I'm pretty low-key and non-serious about this kind of thing, so don't stress. You get huge, huge points in general if you message me first, too. ^_^ Straight girls hardly ever do that on here; it's pretty cool when it happens.
I should probably say that I'm in a polyamorous relationship or two at the moment, so that might be a dealbreaker for some people. One person I'm seeing is KarmaCreature - check them out! If you don't know about these kinds of relationships and are curious, I'd be happy to talk to you about it, but I have absolutely no interest in trying to convince anyone it's right for them. Nobody can say that for anyone else; it's disrespectful and condescending.
Most people I've talked to about it seem to assume that it's a choice motivated by hedonism or some kind of emotional immaturity. While I enjoy a good bout of hedonism now and again, I wouldn't say it's a driving force in my life; in fact, I'd say pursuing the wisdom maturity brings has been far more of a driving force. It's tough to tell from the inside if you're "emotionally mature" or "wise," but I think I do okay.
Also, I guess I should mention that while, in principle, I'm perfectly happy to exchange infinity messages with you, until I actually meet you in person I won't believe you're not a robot or a hyperintelligent canine alien.
The two of us
