I am: dorky, thoughtful, prone to dancing, oftentimes playing devil's advocate, snarky, polyamorous, in a non-romantic marriage with my best friend, vegan, analytical, excitable, asexual-ish, and obsessed with my canine companion Jitterbug
I am not: one of the cool kids
I've built a strong network of humans who I'm constantly awed and delighted by. I'm interested in filling my home with music, home-cooked food, and laughter with greater frequency. I'm also interested in getting out of my home and into the world, on bikes or trails (but never bikes *on* trails, because I will ride my bike into many trees if I attempt that) with greater frequency.
...oh, you meant for work? I work at a small arts non-profit where I wear many hats and get oil paint on all of my favorite business casual clothing. It's pretty great.
-Meeting strangers from the internet
-Vegan magic to make things like lasagna
-Taking joy in doing the things that I'm really bad at, but would like to be better at
I'm really bad at, but would like to be better at:
-Playing the accordion
-Utilizing *all* the spices, not just my go-to handful
-Keeping plants alive
Movies/shows: Enamored with most of Joss Whedon's work. I was great at not having a TV until we reached the age of TV on the internet. Now I'm a House of Cards monster.
Music: I've been on a major Hamilton kick lately, though it is occasionally supplemented with other soundtracks. Otherwise my Metric-inspired Pandora station is a comfortable go-to.
Food: If it is vegan, I will almost definitely eat it.
-Companionship in some form
-A means of self-expression
-Stupid outfits for companion animals
Generally? Gender politics. Dog training. Light. Cognition. Social dynamics and communication. Selection pressures. Externalities. Oil painting. Altered states of consciousness. Rope bondage.
And if I'm being honest here, I have an almost constant to-do list running in the back of my mind. There are a lot of brain squirrels running around up there!
I'm pretty bad at keeping up OKC communication for more than a couple of back-and-forth's. If you sound interesting, I'll probably propose meeting for coffee or beer right from the get go.
