My self-summary
My name is Alex. I catch spiders and let them go outside.

Californian. Vegan. Intersectional feminist. INTP.
What I’m doing with my life
Pastry cheffing, being a terrible role model for children, looking for fun or "a terrible time where interesting things happened."

Above all else I'm flighty. I try to camp, road trip, or travel for months at a time. I love being alone and I need a partner who is just as happy to take off on their own adventures.

Let's sail around the world and meet in the middle. Let's build a plane and fly it to Bermuda. Let's go to Vietnam for dinner and stay 'til Spring. Let's spend the rest of our lives chasing each other around the globe.
I’m really good at
Bringing knives to gunfights, dead languages, cheating at board games, competitive napping, puns, and the horizontal polka.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a California Driver's license, an Iowa Jeep, a Washington mailing address, and a Colorado phone number.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Medieval histories and epics; sad indie movies with sad indie themes; anything from the BBC; folk metal, blues, and britpop.

I don't eat, I photosynthesize.

Seriously, though, some favorites.
Books: The Kalevala, Beowulf, Wuthering Heights, Waiting for Godot, the Exeter Book, all of Shakespeare's histories.
Movies: Harold and Maude, Stranger than Fiction, The Future, Being John Malkovich, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Napoleon Dynamite, Where the Wild Things Are, What About Bob, Howl's Moving Castle, Das Boot, and anything by Wes Anderson.
Shows: Legends of the Hidden Temple, Game of Thrones, Flight of the Conchords, The Mighty Boosh, Top Gear, QI, The Joy of Painting.
Music: Tom Waits, Pulp,The Smiths, Wintersun, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Equilibrium, Ensiferum, Royksopp, the Decemberists, David Bowie, Neil Young, the Talking Heads.
Six things I could never do without
Sketchbook
Whiskey
Fake Cheese
Top Gun
Ikea
Sunscreen (SPF 1 billion)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Etymology, entomology, typography, philology, phrenology, paleobotany, herpetology, derpetology.
On a typical Friday night I am
Baking things I have no intention of eating, drinking until everything agrees to be my friend, making flashcards, and watching shows about cartoon robots in my underwear.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have one unpaid parking ticket from 2006.
You should message me if
You know what's what.

You have the same job as any one of the Village People.

You want to send me a 1,000 word message about how we were arch-enemies in a past life.

You can do it with correct grammar.

You're the same kind of bad as me.
