My self-summary
And now, for the general announcement part of this profile: I'm seeking a romantic relationship with a progressive, liberal, feminist ally geeky/nerdy kind of guy who shares my interests, and doesn't want any (more) children. If that's not you, then we're probably not going to get on as dating partners. My usual ground states are wry snark and benign misanthropy. If you message me, I'll assume you've read this far into my profile.

On offer is one usually adult woman with the vocabulary and intellectual pursuits of a librarian, the mouth of a creative longshoreman, and sometimes, the mind of precocious 12-year-old boy. Also included are thrilling adventures in tabletop and video games, movies, and wacky shenanigans of the type that couples normally find themselves getting up to, with interludes for things like home cooked meals, and the occasional sushi binges.

For fun I like to spend my time in all manner of things, like tabletop games, video games, RiffTrax Live shows, local ghost walks, and movie marathon parties with friends. I enjoy books in all formats - print, electronic, and audiobooks. There is something very soothing about someone reading a story to you.

Not a sportsball fan. But I play a mean game of Cards Against Humanity, and play in two tabletop RPG gaming groups. One in FATE (my favorite system EVER) and one as the cranky, lawful good cleric healer in a D&D 4e campaign. I'm only lawful good because D&D 4e doesn't have chaotic neutral alignments. If you understand how upsetting this is, we may have much to talk about.

And, just in case the photos didn't make it clear, I'm a fat girl.
What I’m doing with my life
A lifetime of remarkably mundane choices and a desire for a career led me into the wilds of accounting and government purchasing. It's much more Byzantine than you might imagine.

I enjoy learning more about a variety of subjects that interest me, from Medieval history to paranormal research, different schools of magical practice, tarot reading, and subjects such as politics, physics, finance, and information technology.

I'm not a Christian, and I've done my homework on this. If you prioritize someone sharing your Christian faith, we're not going to work out as romantic partners. I'm not "God fearing," either. I don't fear your god. My patron god is a jerk, but at least he owns it.
I’m really good at
Cooking, fangirl geekery, Excel spreadsheets, making jewelry, knitting Jayne hats, playing in thunderstorms, and writing, though you wouldn't know it from this particular text box.

Also, cake. Which is not a lie.
The first things people usually notice about me
Apparently, it's the green eyes and glasses. Sometimes it's my cowboy boots. They're very impressive boots.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite...books? I think there's a text limit to these boxes. But as far as authors, there's Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Jim Butcher, Douglas Adams, Anne McCaffrey, Ilona Andrews, Austin Grossman, Sharon Kay Penman, Phil Hine, and Grant Morrisson, and I have a weakness for history trivia vignette books.

TV is nerd issue standard. I am a Whovian (and the answer, in case you're wondering is Nine/Eccleston), A Browncoat, my favorite captain is Picard, and my favorite Batman is voiced by Kevin Conroy, though Bruce Greenwood is a close second. Bear in mind that not listing a show in this section doesn't mean that I don't watch it or I'm not familiar with it.

Movies - again, nerd issue standard. Superheroes, gigantic robots, quirky comedies, and others where stuff blows up a lot. On the other side, there's the cerebral, historical, and political dramas that fascinate me. I'm one of two people I know who think a double feature of Good Night and Good Luck and Frost/Nixon is a great Saturday night. The Big Short is one of my favorite movies ever these days.

Podcasts - Welcome to Night Vale, King Falls AM, Wolf359 The Thrilling Adventure Hour, The Memory Palace, Lore, On This Day, Kakos Industries, The Black Tapes Podcast Tanis, Limetown.

Video Games - Mostly RPGs like Final Fantasy, but I love a well made 2d side scroller like Castlevania:Symphony of the Night or Super Metroid. I also enjoy action games like Portal, Bioshock, Resident Evil, Silent Hill, or the original Devil May Cry.

Tabletop Games - D&D (except 4e),GURPS, FATE, Fiasco, Gloom, Unspeakable Words, Cards against Humanity, Exploding Kittens, many, many more.

Music - Let's call it eclectic with New Wave/Alternative taking the lead. My favorite band ever is XTC. My current favorites are The Decemberists, Mumford & Sons, Regina Spektor, Guster, Ben Folds, They Might Be Giants, Ok Go, Weird Al Yankovic and Jonathan Coulton. I miss The White Stripes, and greatly enjoy The Black Keys. I can't abide top 40 pop country. Seriously. I break out into hives.

Food - I love to cook when there are people to feed. I will often cook dinner for my D&D campaign group when we meet. I am not a sensitive/picky diner. I do prefer to dine at locally owned places (including food trucks) instead of chain restaurants as much as possible.

I'm also a beer snob, though I'm not a huge fan of overly hopped beers such as IPAs. There's more to a craft beer than being hit in the mouth with hops.
Six things I could never do without
Books
Music
Witty banter
My awesome friends
A comfortable bed
My cats
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why a spoon, cousin? Why not an axe?
On a typical Friday night I am
The same thing we do every night, Pinky.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
William Shatner flipped me off once. Okay, so not exactly private, but it is funny. He probably doesn't remember me.
You should message me if
You're liberal, progressive, nerdy and proud of it, okay with the fact that I can't stand The Big Bang Theory (or you have an idea why I dislike the show), know that there's no such thing as a fake geek girl, not young enough to be the son I'll never have, and willing to hold up your end of an actual conversation, with concepts and words and things. Throw in some clever-yet-awful puns and you'll have my full attention.

You have a T40 TARDIS and you know that saying "Nice to meet you. Run for your life!" can make a girl fall in love with you.

You want to talk about tarot cards, magic, magick, or debate the reason why you're Team Moore or Team Morrison (for the record, I'm a fan of Moore comics, but Team Morrison on magic.)

You want to help me hurl invective at my d20. Damned thing almost killed me last time.

You know who Auron is.

You're John Oliver.
