My self-summary
I hate trying to summarize myself because it's quite difficult to encapsulate my glowing personality in a few paragraphs. So, I won't even try. Instead I will offer 10 fun facts about myself for you to peruse at your leisure. You're welcome.
1) I have an irrational and unfounded hatred of the word "clot". There are actually about a million other words that I irrationally hate but I won't get into them right now so as not to seem precious.
2) I love cats. I have two of them. I know this is a turn-off for some people, so might as well get it out there early.
3) I have an MA in a ridiculously unemployable field. I am gainfully employed, however...I just do something useful and less interesting.
4) I don't take myself seriously. Except when it comes to my hair. That I take VERY seriously.
5) I always have an urge to climb stairs on my hands and feet. I suppress it. Usually.
6) As soon as I start wearing flip-flops in the summer, I cannot go back to real shoes to save my life. Well, maybe to save my life. I haven't honestly been in a life-threatening situation where this is the deciding factor. But I do love flip-flops.
7) I can do way more push-ups than you think I can.
8) I have a very short attention span for movies.
9) Sometimes I change song-lyrics to make them about my cat. But only sometimes. OK. All the time.
10) I pick worms up off the pavement and return them to the safety of the grass when it's raining. Watching their sad little bodies attempt to peristalsis their way out of danger melts my heart.
What I’m doing with my life
Metamorphosizing. Like a caterpillar turning into a beautiful butterfly. Except, not in a weird way. There's no creepy pupal stage in which I give up on life for months while I craft some kind of human-sized cocoon. OK. I'm getting carried away with this metaphor. Let's just say I'm currently in a transitional phase of my life.
I’m really good at
Incorporating song lyrics into everyday conversation. Much to the delight and/or annoyance of my companions.
Understanding people. But only the simple ones.
Using inappropriate humour to alleviate the tension in awkward situations...or make them more awkward depending on my audience.
Not replying to uninspired messages.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably that I'm slightly covered in cat hair. I know what boys like.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'll read just about anything but especially enjoy historical fiction. As I said, I have a short attention span for movies but enjoy comedies the most. TV is a mix of high and low brow - current favourites include Rectify, Transparent and the Mindy Project. As for food, it's easier to say what I don't like. I don't like tomatoes because they are pretty much the food of the devil. Mushrooms are also gross and suspicious.
The six things I could never do without
Family, animals, fresh air, water, books, humour.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Who will win the ultimate battle of vampire vs. werewolf. I'm only half kidding. OK, I'm actually not kidding at all.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends. Cats count as friends, right?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still sleep with a baby blanket. Every night. And it travels with me. And I don't wash it all that often.
You should message me if
You're funny, intelligent and sincere. Despite the sarcastic profile, I'm big on saying what you feel, meaning what you say. So, if you can do that, we'll get along just gloriously.
