My self-summary
My personal philosophy- insofar as I have one, and insofar as I understand anything about philosophy (which I rather don't)- is that this is the only life I am going to have, and I should do things that please me. That includes analyzing the reasons behind doing things that don't please me. Practical hedonism?

Other things you may be interested to know:
-I am an introvert with a moderate ability to mimic extroversion.
-I'm an avid reader, often of complete trash.
-I'm deeply sassy.
-I've been to France, England, Jamaica, China, Antarctica, plus all over North America.
-I like driving winding roads in bad weather.

In nerdery: Slytherin/Pukwudgie (you'll have to query for my patronus), aligned neutral evil, INTP/J, Type C, Shakespeare, Batman.
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying it.
I’m really good at
Sounding like I know more about a topic than I actually do (a generalist disguising herself as a polymath); flights of fancy; crafts; derailing my own train of thought ("...What was I just talking about?"); list-making. I'm also good at vocabulary! And Pictionary!
The first things people usually notice about me
Fat lady, right here 👈

If you saw me on a bus, you'd probably notice that I was knitting.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
a. I love books! My genre of choice is Fantasy, though it's not too hard to get me to read other things.
Some of my favorite authors: Terry Pratchett, Garth Nix, Arthur Conan Doyle, Jim Butcher, Patricia McKillip, Shirley Jackson, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Margaret Frazer, Ysabeau Wilce, Ben Aaronovitch.

a/b. Plays: Mary Zimmerman's Arabian Nights, Much Ado About Nothing, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Twelfth Night, Martin McDonaugh's The Pillowman.

b. My all-time favorites are Willow and Conan the Barbarian. To round it out, my lesser favorites (is that an oxymoron?) are Galaxy Quest, V for Vendetta, The Fifth Element, Moonrise Kingdom, Stranger than Fiction, Tropic Thunder, and Black Cat White Cat. (There are a lot of movies I've loved, though.)

c. I will happily watch any PBS or BBC murder mystery, any rendition of Sherlock Holmes (Jeremy Brett is the best) (Moffat is a terrible writer, so I haven't seen Series 4 yet), and a slew of other shows that I often can't determine why I like.

d. I love most kinds of music, and I prefer to change it up often, to avoid band fatigue. Recent enjoyment provided by: Orff, Emeli Sandé, Vas.

e. Ah, food. Can't really go wrong there; so much of it is delicious. However, I have a rather plebeian palate, so I'm often texture-oriented when in comes to nuance; foods I don't like are invariably so because of their texture. Not a beer or coffee drinker.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Crafting, scheming, world-building.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing with words.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'd like to be one of those people who goes to conventions with good, recognizable cosplay, but I'm just not willing to cosplay a skinny character.
You should message me if
