My self-summary
The Valtrex commercial says that 70% of people with genital herpes got it from their partner when said partner had no signs of symptoms of an outbreak. This implies that 30% of the genital herpes population contracted it because they were willing to have sex with someone with obvious oozing sores on their genitals. I find this fascinating.

I also find it fascinating how many people have sent me angry messages concerning the above statement.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I identify as asexual. I love people, I love hugs, I love kisses, but I'm not going to want to fuck you. Nothing personal. If you want a relationship that involves sex, I am not the gal for you.

To give you an idea of what kind of person I am, I once got an extra tube of toothpaste from my dentist because I pointed out a grammatical error on one of the posters in his exam room.

I like watching movies, reading, going for walks, playing video games (RIP chunk of my life spent playing Skyrim), practicing yoga, and spending time with friends. I swear a lot and drink a lot of water (unrelated to the swearing). I love animals and try to live ethically. I carry a periodic table of the elements in my billfold because you never know when you're going to need to know the atomic mass of boron. I'm very attached to my house plants. I love to travel when I have the money to do so. I'm an atheist and a liberal but only sacrifice babies maybe once or twice a month. I tend to have a morbid sense of humor and can laugh at almost anything, no matter how horrible.

Netflix is my best friend.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an analytical chemist! I work with inhalation drug products, using beakers and flasks and fancy instruments and generally being a science geek. I aspire to reach "mad scientist" status one day.
I also spend too much time on Reddit. You'll find this to be either pathetic or awesome.

I also eat, shower, sleep, walk, work, pay bills, and breathe. Parts of me are typically undergoing mitosis at all times.
I’m really good at
Secreting things like boogers and earwax, recovering from minor chemical burns, crossing one eye at a time, being cynical but yet somehow optimistic, spreading my toes apart really far, and making roses out of napkins.
The first things people usually notice about me
If I'm talking, probably that I swear a lot. If I'm quiet, then I may go unnoticed. I don't really stand out physically. That's fine by me; I keep out of trouble that way.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books: Jane Eyre, The Sookie Stackhouse books, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Book Thief, stuff by Richard Dawkins, Water for Elephants, The Dead Zone, Breakfast of Champions, House of the Spirits, Night, anything by Mary Roach.

Movies: I love movies and will enjoy almost anything to a certain extent, but I have my favorites. Little Miss Sunshine, Pride and Prejudice, Everything Is Illuminated, The King's Speech, The Phantom of the Opera and most other musicals. Anything with Johnny Depp or Cillian Murphy. Films by the Coen brothers, Wes Anderson, Tim Burton, or Edgar Wright. The movies I tend to watch over and over again are usually not the finest works of cinema ever made, but just what makes me happy.

TV: Futurama, True Blood, MST3K, Spaced, True Detective, Six Feet Under, Fargo, Twin Peaks, The Simpsons, Raising Hope, Breaking Bad, American Horror Story, Archer, Community, The Soup, Arrested Development, Top Gear, Regular Show.

Music: Jeremy Messersmith, Michael Buble, Ben Folds, Ben Arthur, maybe some other artists named Ben. Adele, Lady Gaga, The Hush Sound, The Civil Wars, The Decemberists, Fleet Foxes, The Shins, Tim Minchin, pretty much all classical music, lots of other stuff. I find myself gravitating to folk and bluegrass lately. Have a banjo? Bring it on.

The six things I could never do without
People to talk to and hug. I'm an introvert, but not antisocial.
A bottle of water (a reusable bottle; I don't waste money on buying the shit when I can get it from my tap).
A fan.
Spearmint flavored gum.
A wristwatch, set approximately 4 minutes fast.
A mode of transportation (my car, the bus, etc.).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'd rather not think about that.
On a typical Friday night I am
Soaking in the tub and going to bed early. I'm usually tired on Friday nights, so I tend to stay in and relax. If I go out, it's usually a Saturday activity. I'm kind of a homebody anyway, so nights spent with my Xbox are fine by me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I still listen to the Backstreet Boys, I love androgyny, and I have a small third nipple.
You should message me if
You think I'm the bee's knees. No other part of the bee, though. I have standards.

I don't respond to messages that just say things like "hi," "how are you" or "what's up." It's boring and you're boring and you should feel bad.
