"Lucy came back to me and smiled. She looped her arm through mine and pulled me forward into the cold night wind. 'It's true,' she said, leaning her head on my shoulder. 'It's your blessing and your curse. You're always going to be fine.'" That's Ann Patchett in Truth and Beauty, and that's also the best summary I know of emo me.
Relationshipwise, I'm looking for what works. The models generally subscribed to, including "open relationship," all seem too complex and question-begging, but a good tweet-sized explanation is that Sex at Dawn confirmed a lifetime of biases for me.
I'm more-or-less a furry (I've found the indefinite article helps distinguish anthropomorphic fanboy type from hirsute), and therefore pretty tactile around people I'm comfortable with.
I'm way too into parentheses, em-dashes, and semicolons.
Concepts that guide my thinking, all important but in descending order of importance:
terms and premises
it is what it is
I can answer several families of okc questions in a compressed space as follows: I am, in an amateurish but determined way, getting into astrology, which is really just one symbol set that can be used for psychotherapy. To scream from the rooftops about one's allegiance to science or one's active disbelief in God (whatever that is) is kinda misdirected hostility. The point of a model is to be useful.
My instinctive reaction to the word "career" is pretty thoroughly negative.
If you think the Prozzäk song "Be As" is one of the bestest things in the universe (go ahead, YouTube it, I'll wait), we'll get along great. =^.^=
Contrary to what the "I'm looking for" section of my profile says, I'm not just trying to hook up with cis men in a certain age range. I calibrated that to represent me as well as a non-Fetlife profile allows for database-match purposes. I'm on here because it seems to draw interesting people. I'm looking for fun friends and, gods willing, sexy dates of whatever gender(s)/orientation(s).
I had my dream job for a few years, but left it because that was the thing to do.
I have a weird hangup about this question that I got about 40% of the way to explaining here and maybe tacked on another 10% here.
My favorite film is Dead Poets Society, though what it means to me changes a lot over time. I'd say I don't watch TV, but that's kind of a dying metaphor anyway, so to put it more broadly: I am profoundly and unapologetically pop-culture illiterate; that said, it's possible I've memorized the majority of The West Wing (it's about Sorkinism, not politics). Oh, speaking of memorized things -- total Rent/Bare geek.
My favorite song is the Tommy Gnosis version of "Wicked Little Town" and my favorite album is Floyd's Wish You Were Here. I own 5.6 gig and counting of Casey Stratton music, all legitimately bought. <3 Casey. And I own several times more Hanson albums than most people think exist.
Also coffee. Vacuum press is bliss, a good espresso is wonderful, but the best is a cup of strong, black, mediocre coffee in an aesthetically perfect coffeehouse. One does not go to coffeehouses for the coffee.
