My self-summary
I'm...An agnostic/atheist feminist dork? I like video games, zombie things, star wars, the joker, batman, schopenhauer, dragons, comics, evolutionary theory, biology, and other things with varying degrees of nerdiness.

OkC says I might be very Less Kind. I think that might be Less True.

I like things and dislike other things. I'd never describe myself as random and I don't really like talking about myself, just the ridiculous and infuriating events that happen. Neediness doesn't appeal to me. Oh, and I prefer interesting things to boring things.
What I’m doing with my life
For my master's thesis in WGS, I conducted a quantitative analysis of race, gender, and sexual orientation representations in video games. I'm writing a book on it. Eventually I plan on continuing on to earn my PhD. How's that for making video game nerding sound self-righteous?
For now, I help the folks you probably avoid on the red line (program director of homeless service programs). Less Kind that, OKCupid.
...At least I had been doing that. Now I make vegan bath & beauty products and sell them: http://AlterVegan.etsy.com

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I like a lot of fantasy and sci-fi genre books but I also like books on science, philosophy, sociology, and psychology. Also Milan Kundera. It's a vague list but I have so many fucking books I can't pick any favorites. Besides, how would my other books feel if I did?
Movies: The Dark Knight, LOTR trilogy, Star Wars, Pan's Labyrinth and an assortment of action and comic-based movies.
Shows: The Walking Dead, Dexter, Firefly, Buffy, Veronica Mars, Jekyll and whatever random series with an overarching plot grabs my fancy for the moment.
Music: My current favorite bands are The Distillers, Flogging Molly, and Placebo. In general though, my taste is mildly eclectic I guess, and my favorite bands change with my mood. I like punk, some industrial, post-punk (Pixies), and whatever I like at the moment.
I excel at specificity, obviously.
The six things I could never do without
Aside from those things actually necessary to the continuation of my life, I could never do without my:
Multitude of game consoles - especially my PS3.
Motorcycle.
Books.
Cigarettes.
My BFF Guy pal.
Pets.

unaware that it is Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
