My self-summary
Hi hello.
I'm short, round, ginger, and driven by curiosity. I'm an admittedly terrible cynic but in a charming and quirky way, I hope. If I had a quarter for every time I've been compared to MTV's Daria, I could buy my very own bottle of Coke from the vending machine at work.

I like scientists who are poets and poets who are scientists. I like the free exchange of ideas and information that is the internet. I like knowing my place in the universe and how deeply I'm connected to it while still being an infinitesimal speck. And I like Buckminster Fuller's Dymaxion Chronofile concept.

I should note that while I understand they're necessary for the algorithms to work, I find the questions posed by this site to be really (annoyingly) prescriptive. I have trouble answering a lot of them, so I wouldn't take my answers too seriously if I were you. Also, I answered most of these questions ages ago so a lot of the answers are probably outdated. If you're concerned about one of my answers, ask.
What I’m doing with my life
Life insurance, ho hum. Occasionally wandering around North West England with a sore back and pockets full of spare change.
I’m really good at
Napping, being painfully introverted, internet window shopping, wishing Morrissey weren't such an insufferable tit, drawing dead trees, and understanding the importance of the Oxford comma.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm human, I suppose.
Also, I am fat and am okay with being fat. Not "chubby" or "curvy" or any other stupid cover-up word. Fat. I'm not a raging social justice warrior but I don't have patience with people who are shitty about fatties.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
BOOKS: The Catcher in the Rye, The Great Gatsby, Peter Pan, Harry Potter, anything by David Sedaris, and nonfiction about serial killers/forensics/etc.

MOVIES: The Virgin Suicides, The Breakfast Club, and Ghost World.

SHOWS: I don't watch a lot of TV. Just The Office (US), Parks & Recreation, Black Books, The IT Crowd...also random British documentaries. Also, I'll watch any dang thing that has Karl Pilkington or Gordon Ramsay in it.

MUSIC: The Smiths, The Decemberists, Joy Division, Bright Eyes, Bis, Nick Drake, Sufjan Stevens, Matt Costa, Iron & Wine, Driftless Pony Club, Death Cab For Cutie, Modest Mouse...Don't let this list fool you. I like quite a lot. I also not-so-secretly love Green Day and have seen them five times in three different states.

FOOD: I drink at least three cups of tea a day (just plain black tea with a splash of milk, thanks), and am an avid consumer of clementines, spinach, and muenster cheese. I could also live happily on lemonade for the rest of my life if given the chance.
Six things I could never do without
Doggos, NPR, curiosity, love, books, and houseplants.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Trying to grasp at wispy moments of nostalgia. I'm such a sentimental little thing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Wondering when 90s grunge fashion will be stylish again and preparing my collection of oversized cardigans for that glorious day.

Update: The day has finally come. It is socially acceptable for me to dress like a mall rat circa 1994 and I am embracing the hell out of it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an atheist but I think High Church art, music, and ritual are just the most beautiful and fascinating things. At the time of this writing, I've been listening to Gregorian Chant for 3 days straight.

Also, the summer I spent embalming bodies was the best time of my life and was the closest I will ever come to having a "spiritual" experience.
You should message me if
You, too, are still mourning the death of Homestar Runner.

You won't mind that I curse like a sailor.

You'll be nice to/enthusiastic about my dog. He is my best friend and I will not tolerate people who are not nice to him. Soz. Also, if you can put up with the fact that I am a crazy schnauzer lady, that would be helpful.
The two of us
