My self-summary
I love to move. I'm not terribly picky, but running, throwing a frisbee, hiking, biking, dancing like an idiot when no one else is home, or just bouncing in place all push my happy buttons.

I can be a bit of a homebody, but that's more habit than inclination. Beer and a wandering conversation at a local brewery are welcome any time.

I tend to focus on function rather than form in my everyday life, but can meander through a good art museum for hours.

I write in short, choppy sentences, with lots of comma splices. You might have noticed this already.
What I’m doing with my life
Playing ultimate and futsal, looking after a community house, and yelling at computers.
I’m really good at
Chasing down problems in complex systems.
Running fast.
Hanging out with preschoolers.
Cheering for the Thorns.
The first things people usually notice about me
The red, I mean purple, I mean orange, I mean blue, I mean pink, I mean purple mohawk, definitely the mohawk.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
I just finished The Ocean at The End of the Lane by Gaiman, up next is The Parable of the Sower by Butler.
I tend to bounce around between scifi, magical realism, and depressing political non-fiction.

Movies:
I like dumb comics movies and I'm not sorry.

Music:
Most things. My most frequent listens recently have been Body Talk, Illmatic, 69 Love Songs, 1989, and RtJ3

Food:
Home cooked anything, with the exception of fish (to which I'm allergic), and eggplant (which is gross).
I love Thai food and sushi, but the fish allergy denies me most of my old favorites.
Six things I could never do without
Exercise
Music
Cuddles
Alone time
Good food and beer
Problems to solve
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time sitting and letting my mind wander through subjects by way of tenuous connections until someone or something yanks me back to reality. This tends to generate a number of in-jokes funny only to myself. Occasionally I forget this and expect other people to 'get it'. I apologize in advance.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home reading a book. Out getting a beer with friends. Playing board games. In the car on the way to a tournament. Lost in solving whatever puzzle I've gotten my head tangled up in that week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I ID as genderqueer and tend to behave fairly femme even if my presentation is decently masculine.
I'm in a long term non-monogamous relationship with a person I think is pretty neat.
You should message me if
You play sports or want to. You want someone to go on last minute hikes in the gorge with. You want a posse to watch Thorns matches with.

They can take your Oxford comma when they pry it from your cold, dead hands.

You want to compare nail polish.
