My self-summary
on two separate occasions this site suggested me as a match for myself. so i finally figured i'd give myself a shot. things didn't work out, so we broke up. it wasn't pretty. but now i'm back, giving this crazy site another go.

new to the largo area. only know a few people in the area, so i'm happy just to meet some new people to hang with.

sometimes i can be a little on the shy/quiet side at first, but that usually melts away pretty quickly, especially with someone i feel a connection with, romantic or otherwise. and then you can't shut me up. go ahead. just try to. (it won't work.)

i'm random & sarcastic and make appropriate jokes at inappropriate times, and inappropriate jokes at appropriate times. i'm kind of a dork and i appreciate other dorks. (anyone up for a bsg or doctor who marathong? buffy, perhaps?) i love an afternoon/evening of netflix and chill but where it actually means chilling while watching netflix.
What I’m doing with my life
i spent seven years living in nyc where i worked as an editor for a travel magazine. then i made the switch to miami, where i worked in public relations and then switched back to the magazine world. three years later, i left the magic city for the gulf coast, where i'm working on starting out in a new area that i hope to call home for the long haul.

i live trying new things and experiencing change. keeps life interesting.
I’m really good at
- being inappropriate. if you value political correctness, you probably will want to steer clear.
- making people laugh
- listening/giving advice
- speaking with a minnesotan accent (this is a skill that is under-appreciated but has proven to be pivotal in getting me to where i am in life*)
- i also really enjoy purposely misspelling like-sounding words. (czech instead of check; thyme instead of time; suite instead of sweet...you get the idea.) completely unrelated to this, i can't figure out why i'm single.

* no it hasn't been
The first things people usually notice about me
my slightly crooked smile & super snappy outfits
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books: the dune series, his dark materials trilogy, hunger games trilogy, jane eyre, great expectations, dracula, grapes of wrath, to kill a mockingbird, wicked, prayers for bobby, possible side effects, the great gatsby, a child called it, the jungle, oliver twist, my horizontal life, bossypants

music: i'm sorta all over the place here, but have a special place in my heart for shitty (read: awesome) pop music. leave me alone.

tv: game of thrones, spartacus, 4400, mad men, under the dome, how to get away with murder, between, good girl revolt, catastrophe, carnivale, mozart in the jungle, the man in the high castle, mr. robot, quantico, supergirl, bates motel, stranger things, torchwood, bloodline, american horror story, the flash, arrow, crazy ex-girlfriend, haven, organge is the new black, skins, power rangers (yeah, so what?), black mirror, dark matter, battlestar galactica, dr. who (bbc revival), buffy, angel, true blood (y'know, except for the last 2 seasons), gossip girl, falling skies, i love lucy, the simpsons, will & grace, desperate housewives, weeds, top chef, chopped, hell's kitchen, master chef

i maybe possibly watch too much tv. sue me.

movies: clueless, mean girls, citizen kane, run lola run, monster, cloverfield, a dirty shame, brokedown palace, go, memento, shattered glass, girl interrupted, america's sweethearts, party girl, beaches, dune (the syfy remake, not the lynch garbage), children of dune, battle royale, devil wears prada, prometheus

food: i'm pretty adventurous with food, and will try just about anything once. (to date, duck tongue is probably one of the strangest so far.) day to day, i'm especially fond of mexican, thai, and italian. would love to meet someone to introduce me to things i've never tried before.
Six things I could never do without
1. friends & family
2. my phone
3. netflix instant
4. ties. both of the regular & the bow persuasion.
5. fans. both the adoring crowds cheering for me and electronic wind-making kind. it's hard for me to fall asleep without the latter. (okay and also without the former. i just want to feel loved!)
6. my cats. leave me alone. i'm not a recluse. (i'm sort of a recluse.) i keep adopting strays, so i'm well on my way toward becoming a bonafide spinster. do you love it?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how cool it would be to have superpowers. lots of them. god-like superpowers. i don't like to limit myself and if you think that's a bad thing, i shall smite you.*

*smiting will occur upon acquisition of said god-like superpowers. your patience is much appreciated.
On a typical Friday night I am
it depends. while i do love a good night out on the town, i can also be a bit of a homebody, and i'm okay with that. though i admit: it'd be nice to have someone to be a homebody with. my ideal night "out" is actually a night in, cooking (or ordering, whatever) a delish meal and watching a good (or awesomely bad) movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
people who don't know the difference between "your" and "you're" drive me crazy. this also applies to: there, they're, and their; and to, too, and two. i will point it out if you misuse any of them, and you will probably get annoyed, but i will continue to do so. sorrynotsorry.
You should message me if
- you read my profile and laughed. or smiled. or thought about laughing but couldn't because you were in public and you didn't want people to think you were crazy and/or drunk.
- you've a good head on your shoulders and you're smart. (but not too smart; i don't want you to make me look stupid.) also, if you know how to just let loose (take your top off and shake your twins!), that sure would be swell.
- you're not just using this site as an alternative to grindr.
