My self-summary
This is a second draft because the first self-summary I posted seemed lame and not representative, so here are some things:

I've given my roommate permission to dictate what I include in this list because describing myself makes me uncomfortable, but I get why it's kind of a necessary evil on a dating site. However, she doesn't seem too interested in taking advantage of that offer, so it looks like I've gotta bite the bullet.

I'm an East Coast transplant, raised in Massachusetts.

I like words a lot. I will be over the moon if you teach me a new word.

Music is a big deal. I'll talk about music all day.

I like it when people geek out about stuff they like. Sincerity--sincere passion in particular--is definitely a turn-on.

I find ironing to be a deeply satisfying and meditative activity.

I wish I could say that I feel guilty about how much time I spend on Tumblr, but I just don't.

I owe the Seattle Public Library approximately $150 in overdue fines. I do actually feel really guilty about that.
What I’m doing with my life
Working at a bakery. Trying to get work as an actor.
I’m really good at
walking the extremely fine line between gutsiness and tactlessness.

Also, people don't seem to hate it when I sing, which is nice because I like doing that a lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books--Rebecca (Daphne du Maurier), Shadow of the Wind (Carlos Ruiz Zafon), Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell (Susanna Clarke)

Movies--City Lights, Rushmore, O Brother Where Art Thou?, His Girl Friday, Rosemary's Baby

Music--I'm not sure how to boil this down to a succinct list, but I usually cite of Montreal as my favorite. Also: Beirut, The Mountain Goats, Sunset Rubdown, The New Pornographers, Buddy Holly, Nancy Sinatra, Okkervil River, Neutral Milk Hotel, Pink Martini, Patsy Cline, Linda Ronstadt. I went through a jazz phase recently, and even more recently I've been listening to a lot of Motown. I dunno. Ask me about it.

Food--I literally don't even know where to begin.
The six things I could never do without
Music, language, gin, coffee, affection, hot showers.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either drinking wine and listening to ABBA with my roommate, or wandering around the hill with my roommate. I spend a lot of time with my roommate.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was once moved to tears by an episode of X-Men: The Animated Series.
You should message me if
You want to ask a question about anything I failed to address. I mean, really, just go for it.

Extra points if you want to hazard a guess as to what my username is referencing.
