My self-summary
uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh (also known as tina belcher sound). i'm working. i'm hanging out with friends. i'm reading/watching stuff? that might be about it.

oh, and quoting bob's burgers. (tina is my spirit animal,as you may have guessed by now.)
What I’m doing with my life
working as a freelance copy editor (aka working from home, most likely sans pants).

besides that? trying to have it all. oh, and trying to read all the books i've accumulated over the years and have not read.
I’m really good at
• catching the grammatical/spelling/punctuation errors others make (it's been my career since 2000)
• sleeping in (it's what weekends are for)
• quoting something from a show no one around me has seen (you don't get that i just quoted something from the third season 30 rock? that's probably fine.)
• sounding Canadian (apparently, when you watch enough Canadian TV shows, you pick up the accent. that's my excuse.)
• wearing cardigans (but i still want more)
• making grilled cheese (provolone, chedder, and cream cheeses)
• making things awkward (this happens more than i'd like)
• making lists (followed by parenthetical clauses)
The first things people usually notice about me
uhhhhhh...lately it's probably that i've been talking to myself out loud at the grocery store. what, you don't do that? i thought it was perfectly normal and doesn't make me seem crazy.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
drinking. (i don't really. but one of my favorite bands, named the meat purveyors, has a song titled "thinking about drinking". so i just gave the joke away.)

but seriously, lately? probably how mad i am that NBC isn't showing the next season of Hannibal until the summer.
On a typical Friday night I am
uhhh...hh/dinner with the bestie, then watching something innocuous at said bestie's place, then possibly drinks at barflys. i am a creature of habit.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i'm secretly canadian? (i'm not, really. but i have gotten mistaken for canadian a lot. and indian.)
You should message me if
congratulations! you made it through my profile. POP QUIZ TIME!


but if you'd like to grab a whiskey drink or a dirty chai, send me a line. i don't bite...unless instructed to do so.
The two of us
