My self-summary
Note: OKCupid has done its job, and I am happily dating someone (a person I've known IRL for 10 years, but reconnected with, thanks to OKC -- it can happen!). So why do I leave this profile up? I've also made some really amazing platonic friendships through OKC over the past year, and I'm very grateful for them. So while I'm not looking for dates right now, I'm always up for making new friends. Seriously.

I am:
A lover of bad horror movies, obscure magazines, Vertigo comics, questionable goth/industrial jams, late-night barhopping, Frank Frazetta pinups, and Building #19 (R.I.P.) treasure hunts.
What I’m doing with my life
Clawing my way to the top. (Joke.)
I’m really good at
Making owl puns.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, that's the million-dollar question, innit? I wish I knew. (Wait, maybe I don't want to know.)

... and basically whatever WMBR's "The Show Show" tells me to listen to.
The six things I could never do without
"Never do without," eh? I get cranky if I can't readily access: Spotify, Google Docs, Diet Coke, vintage Loveline eps, opaque black tights, 0.05 mm blue Pilot G2 pens.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Serial commas, dystopian futures, midnight movies, plague epidemiology, DVD commentary tracks, stompy music, craft beer.
On a typical Friday night I am
Proofreading. Saturday nights are a different story ...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have willingly (voluntarily, even) attended multiple ICP shows. Long story.
You should message me if
You want to talk about trashy horror films over drinks. Or you want an afternoon of thrift store spelunking. Or you want to see a concert featuring weird robot music. Or you want to endure an evening of uncomfortably bad amateur stand-up comedy. Or if you're just generally up for the occasional T-accessible adventure -- I'm all about cheap thrills and good conversation.
