My self-summary
I was terribly shy in my youth, and missed my chance to be the class clown I should have been. I'm making up for it now, what with the Improv, and comedy, also I do a lot of karaoke. Even with said outlets, I can't help it, where ever we are, I'm going to learn towards you and comment on the action and make you laugh.

I have a really terrible memory. High school? Not really there. College? A blur at best. I forget names especially easily. My short-term is OK, but oh that long-term.

I might over-think things. I'm not sure because i do so love to think. Out-loud and with people too. If you like mildly rambling conversations on the nature of perception, boy howdy will we get along. And do you like to have them at diners? 'Cause I sure do.

I am a good listener. Really. I know that's one of those things that everyone thinks they do well. Active, engaged, and insightful. I'm also funny and kiss well.

Quite serious on the funny part. Well, on the kissing part, too.

I have a powerful and uncritical love of coffee.

I'm not that good at coming up with really clever things to do, but I'm great at following through with plans once they're set. I'm up for adventure.

I am over, thinking, and this
What I’m doing with my life
Working part time tutoring.

Trying to be a comedic actor in illegitimate theater; Improv, Burlesque, Commedia, Clown (not quite what you're thinking; nothing like birthday [*shudder*] or circus clowns. I'm trained in something called Red-Nose clowning [I know, don't they all have red noses?] which is all about character [closer to Marx brothers or Bugs Bunny than the dreaded punsmiths that are birthday clowns]), a little stand-up (anything that is not necessarily respected, but is actually entertaining).

As you can see, I really enjoy talking about clown theory...
I’m really good at
Being funny. On stage mostly, but i can be a bit of a card just sitting at the diner.

I'm also into sewing; I like to draft my own patterns for projects, usually my only problem is a derth of inspiration. I like other crafts as well: I enjoy knots and braiding, and might just be the greatest boondoogle talent on the planet (not a lot of ways to check, 'though)
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, I'm 6'4". That stands out a bit.

My posture has a lot of air and very little earth in it (I've studied some movement [just because the theatre I do is illegitimate doesn't mean I don't take it seriously]). One of best friends said that when she first saw me she described me as floating.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books? Eclectic lot that. I tend to amass non-fics on Improv, Commedia d'el Arte, masks, humor, and fiber arts. Favorite novel is prolly Geek Love. I like Sedaris/Burroughs, Terry Pratchet, Neil Gaiman, getting into Oliver Sachs and Malcolm Gladwell, and thank you to Douglas Adams for teaching me what obsession was.

Movies! I Heart Huckabee's, The Fall, (most) anything by Wes Anderson, non-superheroic movies by Michelle Gondry, Pan's Labyrinth, Labyrinth, Strings, Dark Crystal, 5th Element... I am sucker for Pixar. I love horror movies. Good, bad, ugly: I'm there. My favorites are cheesy 80's with lots of latex. Oh how i hate how bad CGI has so overwhelmingly replaced physical effects.

Music... Hmm.... that's a bigie ain't it? I love it, and am completely intimidated by how much amazign stuff that is out there that i don't know about, but some mainstays and obsessables are Tom Waits, Elvis Costello, the Decemberists, Stephin Merrit's myriad bands, Peter Bjorn & John, Rilo Kiley/ Jenny Lewis, Gogol Bordello, Qua, Mermaid Avenue, Scissor Sisters, Dar Williams, Ben Folds, and so much more... Want to expose me to more? Please do! Oh! Oh-Oh! Make me a mix! Please!

Food< So much love for food. Love trying new foods, love all the food I've tried. Except liccorice. Hateful stuff. I dislike it enough that while I realize I have misspelled it, i refuse to spell-check it into accuracy
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Sewing projects I want to work on. Clowning. Improv. Non-naturalist theatre styles. Comedy. Masks. Why we laugh. The coming week. The week past. The name of that one actor that i like, who is is an a so many things always small parts, but damn if it doesn't do a lot with them. Commedia d'el Arte. Shelves. Comics. The next step.
On a typical Friday night I am
Well, if it's the third friday of the month, I'm on stage with my improv group. Other than that, dunno; why is something going on?

I know, I know: this question is not literally about friday nights, it uses the iconic nature of friday night as the quintessential evening of socializing and dating as a springboard for me to give an idea of what form I most enjoy socializing. Well in short I like to talk, so unless I am specifically at a place to dance, I don't want the music to blare. Also I don't want to pay too much for a beer. in short I like smaller groups (the better to have conversations involving everyone) at dive bars or diners. Or cooler places, if available, like boats or barges or gutted warehouses or what-have-you.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to have a lot of trouble with depression. That "used to" is the happiest "used to" in my life.
You should message me if
you'd like to.
The two of us
