Where is says I'm Christian and very serious about it? I really am. My walk is far from perfect, but my faith is the most thing about me. That means I'm not interested in a romantic relationship with someone who doesn't share my faith, because we'd be fundamentally incompatible.
I'm a geeky girl--I suck at video games (which pains me, since all my friends are good at them. I'm halfway decent at MarioKart Wii but that's as good as it gets) and I'm too impatient to keep up with monthly comics, but I love fantasy in my books and SF in my television and superheroes in my graphic novels (also fantasy and SF in my graphic novels, for that matter), and all of the above in my movies. My superhero of choice is Batman (I was indoctrinated early with Batman: The Animated Series, which I still love). I also geek out over random things like historical clothing and art. At the moment, while I wait impatiently for Doctor Who to come back, I'm marathoning Battlestar Galactica.
I'm very much an introvert, but I also have a strong need for community--I love to be with people, as long as they're the right people, and I love good conversation, although like most introverts I don't enjoy pointless small talk just for the sake of talking. Companionable silence seems much better to me.
I'm a goofball. It's very important that you know this.
Movies: My movie collection is a total hodgepodge--I love movies like The Princess Bride, Stardust, A Knight's Tale, Ladyhawke, The Rocketeer, Fight Club, Brick, The Brother's Bloom. Young Victoria, foreign films like Amelie, Cyrano de Bergerac, and anything by Miyazaki (my favorites are Spirited Away. Princess Mononoke, Howl's Moving Castle, and Ponyo), and I have a weakness for Disney and Pixar films. My favorite movies of 2011 were Tangled and The King's Speech.
Shows: The only shows I follow regularly on television these days are Castle, Big Bang Theory, and my current true passion, Doctor Who. I'm a season behind on Supernatural, but I'm looking forward to catching up. I also enjoy catching random episodes of shows like Leverage, Burn Notice, Law & Order (it's always on somewhere!), and shows on HGTV, diy, or The Food Network (I love Ace of Cakes). And I will never get tired of watching Firefly over and over and over.
Music: I love modern folk, which in my mind covers a really big range, but I also love classic rock and soundtracks--according to iTunes my top artists are Vienna Teng, Over the Rhine, Kate Rusby, Girlyman, The Paper Raincoat, Sarah Slean, The Weepies, Queen, Jonathan Coulton, the Tangled soundtrack, and the Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog soundtrack.
Food: I love food--all kinds of food, from Italian to Thai. I don't enjoy spices that burn, or seafood, but other than that I like trying new things. And I am a fiend for baked goods.
2. My family. They're weird, they're goofy, they're loud, they're obnoxious, they make me crazy, they're completely awesome, and they always know what I'm quoting and will quote it back.
3. My friends. They're extra family members--I'm completely comfortable with my girls, and they keep me honest. We have the best conversations--insightful, intelligent, brilliant, hilarious, with lots of big gestures and laughing.
4. The internet. The internet became really crucial to me when I was a lonely twelve-year-old, and it continues to keep me connected to my friends around the world.
5. Peaceful time. It's really important to me to have quiet time for myself, when I can be alone to recharge. I love to be social with my friends, but I'm still an introvert at heart.
6. Time and ability to be creative. When I don't make things I feel stale and claustrophobic.
Funny things to say on Twitter?
I amuse myself at work by telling myself stories and playing out interesting conversations or scenarios (Christopher Lee doesn't know it, but I've decided that we should form a folk-opera duo called Death and the Maiden. Because it would be awesome).
In my less flippant moments I get analytical about random things, most often what I'm reading--the themes and character development, etc. This includes everything I read, from pure fluff to the Bible. You can take the geek girl out of academia, but she will still be an English major at heart....
Really, I'm looking for someone who balances me. I'm not sure what that looks like. Maybe you're outgoing where I'm introverted. Maybe you're math/science oriented where I'm all about the arts. Maybe you prefer Superman while I prefer Batman (just kidding on that one. If you prefer Superman over Batman then you are very confused). But if you think we're the same on important subjects (like religion, and Batman), if we have enough shared interests to have a conversation, and if we're different in a few areas, then message me! Maybe we'll make a beautiful Venn diagram.
