My self-summary
Important note: I'm a fledgling accordionist, and I'm looking for people to play with! I'm new to music, so I don't really know how this kind of thing works. But I want to learn!

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
What I’m doing with my life
Attempting to reconcile my desire to do all the things (all of them, with everybody, all the time!) with my desire to get adequate sleep, etc.

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.
I’m really good at
-Traveling long-term, on the cheap
-Rope bondage
-Manipulating light
-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
The first things people usually notice about me
One of the first things that people notice tends to be that I'm tiny. After that, the exuberant flailing seems to be noteworthy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I mostly read non-fiction. I've been in a bit of a book lull for way too many months at this point.

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.
Six things I could never do without
-Companionship in some form
-A means of self-expression
-Stupid outfits for companion animals
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Most recently? Accordion playing. Spirituality, and how out of my depth I am when I'm thinking about spirituality.

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!
On a typical Friday night I am
Having an easy-going evening with a couple of friends and a couple of beers. Or doing something else. Definitely one or the other, though.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I'm kind of a dictator about spooning. A joyful dictator! But a dictator nonetheless.
You should message me if
We have mutual interests and you think that we could have good conversations. You understand that it's pretty much guaranteed that you will never ever ever get laid by me. You're within 50 miles of Denver or else visit here frequently.

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.
The two of us
