My self-summary
Hey dudes of OKCupid internet dating land. What's up. My name is Lexi.
You're probably looking at this because you like my face. Either that or I've been e-stalking you. OR maybe your cat just walked onto your computer and clicked on my profile. A catastrophe. Yeah. Let that one sink in.

Um. Let's see.
I've been in LA for close to a year now. I live in Los Feliz, which I only mention because Google Maps calls it "Lost Phallus" and.. come on.
I originally hail from the Midwest. Or Midworst. Or, you might know it as the vast nether-land one passes over in an airplane on the way to someplace better.
I like making art. It's kind of the one thing I've excelled at my whole life. It's constant, it's catharsis. Primarily I do graphite drawing and oil painting, though I've dabbled in all kinds of media. Right now I'm apprenticing at a tattoo shop, which is epically exciting for me--finally making art my main priority, putting the ol' art education to use. Er. Yeah. I dropped out of art school, by the way.
I have a mangy old dog named Kiely. We have an unhealthy parasitic relationship. I'm basically her human slave and joyride chauffeur. But in turn I get to try desperately to cuddle her while she literally kicks me. It's pretty great. I freestyle little songs about my love for her when we're alone. Shhhh. She's my sunshine and my best friend and my goodness dogs are just pure furry magic.

I should also mention now that I love puns. Just so that's out there.
What I’m doing with my life
Apprenticing at a tattoo shop. Making artworks. Taking my dog to the beach. Taking my dog for walks in Lost Phallus.. uh. Los Feliz. Sitting in traffic.
I’m really good at
Staying up all night. Navigating subway systems. Procrastinating. Making banana bread.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I am human, female, and have all my limbs. But I'm just guessing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like books. A lot. I devour books like the cookie monster does cookies. Or broccoli. Whatever he's into now-a-days. I am going to be honest, I read a lot of trash. I'm not that cool. I'm reading Harry Potter again if you're curious. Which you're probably not.
Side note, I'm totally analog when it comes to media. I recoil at the thought of reading a book on a screen. I'm a BOOK book person. I like the weight of it, and there is something satisfying about being able to measure how many pages you've physically turned. Nerd alert.

Movies... The Family Stone is my favorite. I ain't ashamed. It is what it is. I'm also a hardcore marathon watcher of Lord of the Rings. It gives me goosebumps every time.

TV. I like to knit and watch Netflix which I call "Knitflix." Yeah whatever people besides your grandma can knit and it's totally fine.
I like weird and spooky shit and lowbrow comedy. Medical related stuff too, because I've always wanted to not actually be a doctor but play one on TV.
I've been really into Orphan Black lately. And The Fall, oh my god. And I'm watching Twin Peaks for the first time ever, which has been sublime. And and and I'm always into The X-Files.

As for music, I like the rock 'n roll. But, I'm hopelessly out of touch with most current music. Don't get me wrong, I love the crap out of music. It's just, I still have an iPod with a click-wheel. And I'm like the one person who still goes to the record store and buys an actual real life copy, 'cause I need to hold it in my grubby little paws and read the liner notes and experience the artwork and all that.

If we are what we eat, I'm composed mostly of Spaghetti Ohs and flavor blasted Goldfish Crackers. Sad fact.
The six things I could never do without
I have more than six vital organs so I'm not really sure how to answer this question.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Escape. Living like a gypsy in an old Winnebago. How much I would love to be friends with a goat. Lots of useless crap that is a waste of my brain meats.
On a typical Friday night I am
Taking a long, long nap. Isn't that just going to bed? you must be wondering to yourself. No. Maybe. I suppose it could be construed as such.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There are a few U2 songs I actually like.
Ugh. I just threw up in my mouth a little.
You should message me if
1. You have a fun and/or obscure fact to tell me. (Example: cats have free-floating clavicles so they can squeeze through anyplace they can fit their heads! This fact probably excludes obese cats for you smart mouths about to tell me I'm wrong.)

2. You want to go to Disneyland. I've got an annual pass I need to milk for everything it's worth. I mean also who doesn't want to go to Disneyland? People who hate fun and magic, that's who.

3. You saw pictures of my dog and you want to hang out with her. Which, yeah, I totally get.. she's the best.

4. You also knit. And you want to Knitflix and chill. (Oh my god I think I'm so funny.)

5. Or whatever. I can't tell you your business.
