My self-summary
I use the word “normal” as an insult. I look for a barbed wit and a good intention in the people I keep. I look for a soft hand and a strong will in the people that keep me.

Sometimes when I am very stressed out I indulge in a solipsistic stance that nothing outside of me can be real, and thus nothing outside of me can matter. It, strangely, helps a lot.

I also love oxford commas. This is not entirely unrelated.

I believe, personally, in a bigger form of love. I am in a relationship, but love new crushes. Steal my heart.
What I’m doing with my life
Semi-pro recreational nudity.

Obsessively investing in the well-being of one technology executive.

Also, hugs.
I’m really good at
Walking in very high heels.

Remembering the lyrics to songs; singing them unabashedly and somewhat tunelessly.

Semicolons.

Throwing myself into whatever catches my fancy, losing myself completely, finding myself as something entirely new on the other side.

Useless introspection.
The first things people usually notice about me
Saying you don't know how to answer this question is the "Hello world" of profiles.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Russian lit, Post-modern philosophy, Plath, Eliot, Sexton. I have a deep and abiding love for my Kindle.

Movies: American Beauty, Exit through the Gift Shop, and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind if I’m being impressive. Clueless, 10 Things I Hate About You, and Mean Girls if I’m not. I'm slightly film illiterate. Pretend like you're going to show me movies I need to see, then let's make out.

Shows: British panel shows, particularly QI and 8 out of 10 Cats.

Music: Sad hipster music.

Food: Yes, please. High brow, low brow, as long as it’s delicious and preferably served with wine. Also, I can cook and I am never bashful with butter.

Webcomics: xkcd, qwantz, qc, wondermark, dr. cat, oglaf (nsfw), achewood

Podcasts: Obsessing about No Such Thing as a Fish and Welcome to Night Vale.
The six things I could never do without
Hearing, taste, sight, smell, touch, touch, touch...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The world is big and I am small. My perspective shifts in and out and makes me dizzy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Making mischief. Causing mayhem. Reading books?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
To whom? When?

I am not a private person.

Let's get a drink, I'll tell you anything and everything.
You should message me if
You're ready to double down on your entendres.
