My self-summary
Pretty, long-haired, serious, kind, and funny intellectual, passionate about high and pop culture, my friends, my house. I teach literature, and specialize in the Western love poem starting with Sappho, particularly in the 16th and 17th centuries. I also enjoy loud, fast music and all kinds of movies, as well as quiet time to read and think. Former dj, still a music snob: currently enjoying Y Niwl, Teen Canteen, Art Brut, Wild Flag, the Elvis Suicide, Honeyblood, the Twilight Sad, Glasvegas, and Camera Obscura, thanks to the BBC and college radio. Total fan of Joss Whedon. Can we compare Britomart to Lara Croft? Francois Villon to Billy Bragg? Fugazi to William Morris? Battlestar Galactica to The Odyssey?
I work many 90-hour weeks, then weeks not at all, and need both time alone and a strong relationship, with a smart, strong, honorable man, who responds to both a flirtatious glance and a direct look. I like to learn about the world I live in and the people I live in it with. You like a woman with passionate interests of her own to complement and enrich your own passions. Talk to me about books and movies or your newest market. Teach me more about software or structural stresses. Take me on trails I've never hiked. Let's stay home and watch TV, or hit the road to see Frightened Rabbit. Let's get silly over Japanese game shows, or sort out being and nothingness. What lights you up?

I am bitter, sweet, and Petrarchan
What I’m doing with my life
Figuring out how to move to Orkney.
And pruning my peach trees.
I’m really good at
Keeping the ice off my steps. The sidewalk is another matter.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music? Today? Spook School, Teen Canteen, Honey Blood, and Chris Devotion and the Expectations. Movies? The Bride With White Hair. Food? Malaysian, Thai, Afghani, Indian, Ethiopian, southern, Nouvelle, classic French. The book is Nabokov's _Ada_, hands down.
The six things I could never do without
Music, a garden, Vintage seltzer, dried mango, white noise machines, my friends.
On a typical Friday night I am
Dead meat. Saturday is another story.
