I am a big talker, and a big listener.
My car is named after a character in Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory. No one has ever guessed correctly on the first try (and people guess often).
I find it really difficult to put on a smile for photos, as I'm sure you can see for yourself. I'm not a sourpuss in real life, I swear. Okay, only like 38% of the time.
Really, I'm just looking for someone willing to do household tasks for me while my nail polish is still wet.
I love my job. It means I go to bed early most nights, though.
Dogs and cats generally think I'm awesome.
I give killer back and head scratches.
I'm usually pretty well informed about the day's news (which lately means I'm often on the verge of hysterics).
I'll proofread the shit out of your term paper/resume/novella.
My students don't think I'm completely out of touch, so that's kind of cool.
I watch a lot of Jeopardy, some nights I'm downright impressive.
Red lipstick. Purple lipstick. Black lipstick.
Blue nail polish. Green nail polish. Black nail polish.
My best friend from college recently told me I'm "one of the most distinct looking fuckers (she's) ever met", so there's that, I guess.

Note: I've had this profile (off and on) for years and this list has never changed. It's a pretty legitimate approximation of what I rely on for comfort and calm.
What life would have been like had I had the misfortune to be born in a time before the advent of modern optometry - without corrective eyewear, I'm a real worthless piece of shit.
Also - sonder: noun. "the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk."
You're an eloquent wordsmith.
You want to be fed and read to.
You want a book recommendation!
Don't just say "hi".
