Pretense and hypocrisy annoy the living crap out of me.
I really like pie.
I find joy in the world as an intensely wonderful, fucked up place that has an absolute 100% chance of survival.
I am in the game industry to support my education habit. Hopefully it will take me back to school for Sociology, then to a dusty office in a university where I can wear a tweed jacket with elbow patches, carry a leather grip, and spend my days writing and lecturing on social theory to the squishy minds of some future generation.
When I am not making really fun crap for other people, I am organizing, running or curating clandestine Social Practice/Interactive Performance Art events in SF and Oakland. Some of these are collaborative projects, some are pervasive games and some are just unnecessarily ridiculous.
Due to motorcycles, I'm anywhere I want to be in 20 mins.
Working a room
Being inappropriate in almost any situation
Laughing and bringing others with me
Adventure and bringing others with me
Making sure all the shit gets taken care of
Making sure all the people get taken care of

.....Or I'm just at a table somewhere quietishly playing boardgames.
Without a spellcheck or google my written voice sounds like a mildly retarded three year old with a propensity for toluene. Even with crutches, mistakes still get through. It's a result of poorly handled early age ADD and Dyslexia. At this point, it's probably too sticky to change.
If you are, it is going to be pretty much up to you to poke me and say hello. I very rarely send out messages as I fully understand how utterly inundated you are as a woman on OKC.
In all honesty I have a whole bunch of shit to do in my life and none of it involves carefully and thoughtfully crafting an interesting introduction message just to get lost in a sea of douchey drivel. (I know what comes your way...I've heard the stories...I've read the transcripts....I am ashamed for my gender)
Do you want to break the shackles of traditional gender roles? Great. Here is your chance to slough off two-thousand years of patriarchal oppression. Let me know you are interested and you can be assured to receive the full brunt of my thoughtful, creative, interesting messaging skills.
Also. Here is a list of wonderful friends of mine in no particular order. They are all amazing individuals. If you like one (or more)...then fuck it. Go hit that!
