My self-summary
INFP if you buy into that stuff. Let's get over this misconceived notion that being an introvert automatically means you're shy.

Atlanta native and current resident. We are basically unicorns.

Welcome to the list of that which is Mary. Please stay for the end. There will be cake.

- Half romantic and half realist. I argue with myself a lot. Not in a crazy way. Usually.
- I drive with the windows down and the music up. Weather permitting, of course. I also prefer to do this without shoes on.
- It drives me insane when people don't use the right "there, their, your, you're, etc." I know this isn't the most attractive quality, but I just can't take it.
- I like being outside, but I also have a deep appreciation for air conditioning.
- I enjoy taking showers in very little light. I find it to be quite relaxing.
- I stopped thinking it was cool to date a musician about the same time I started caring about my 401K.
- I walk to the grocery store. Walking is nice. Atlanta traffic isn't.

"Reluctantly crouched at the starting line, engines pumping and thumping in time."
I told you there would be Cake. yeah. I make bad jokes.

disclaimer: I am super allergic to cats. I can be in a house with them, but I can't pet them without washing my hands afterwards. I also can't sleep in a room they go into. I wake up with a swollen face. No one wants to wake up next to the Kool-Aid man.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm the program supervisor of a human services center for Gwinnett County. We partner with non-profits to provide programs and classes for the community. I get to help people every day. It makes the insanity worth it.
I’m really good at
detecting bullshit while rarely calling anyone on it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a short white girl with a rather large behind.

"I don't spew profanities. I enunciate them clearly. Like a fucking lady."

I think it's a fair estimate that 78% of the people on here say that their eyes are the first thing people notice. For over half of them, I bet that isn't true. 39% of you are full of shit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I'm completely out of bookshelf space. It's a problem.

Movies: Pollyanna, Eternal Sunshine, Hook, Star Wars, Harry Potter, A League of Their Own, TMNT, Marvel has been really on the ball recently, and basically anything with Jennifer Lawrence or Emma Stone. I'm not hard to please, but I can't watch horror movies. I'm a chicken shit, and I won't sleep for 4 days. Unless it's one of those horror movies that's so ridiculous that it's funny. Like Dead Snow. You had me at Nazi Zombies.

Shows: I've seen every episode of Gilmore Girls. A few times. Archer always has me dying. Joss Whedon is my spirit animal. I swear by my pretty floral bonnet, I will end you.

Music: Portugal. The Man, Lydia, Mogwai, Hendrix, Brand New, mewithoutYou, The Xx, The Black Keys, Radiohead, The Middle East, Gregory Alan Isakov, Russian Circles, Modest Mouse, Gasoline Heart, 90s alternative, and I'll end with Taylor Swift. I can't stand Maroon 5. Adam Levine's voice is like sandpaper on my brain. I've been on a serious bluesy/folkish kick recent. Lots of Kaleo, Hoiser, Shawn James, etc.

Food: BBQ. All. Day. Long. Whiskey, specifically of the Irish variety... Usually Jameson on the rocks or with ginger ale if I'm feeling frisky. Red wine. Tacos. I need to go on a taco tour of Atlanta. Allergic to mushrooms, but I'm okay with it cause they're gross anyway.
The six things I could never do without
My people
Coffee. I'm an addict. It's bad.
Music
Books
Pictures
Water. For real though. I carry my glow in the dark nalgene everywhere.
High thread count sheets. Yeah. I added a 7th thing. WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?! That's right. Nothing.... Please don't report me to the OKC gods.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
It seems like a lot of folks on here seem to be spending a lot of their time on the beltline. With all these single people in one place, why are they all still on here/single? Just a thought.

What is with only posting group pictures? I feel like I'm playing Where's Waldo.

There are quite a few self proclaimed "laid back" people are here. OKC is apparently one chill ass spot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Who wants their nights, or days for that matter, to be typical?

Why do so many people on here say they go out to a "local" bar? How many people go to bars far away from their house? It's probably a far less percentage than those that don't, so wouldn't it make more sense to only specify if you go to a non-local bar...? Just wondering.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I probably know more about Star Wars than you.
I love red hair.
I can't swim.
I enjoy being manhandled and told what to do in certain situations.
I have a serious weakness for men with nice arms. I got it bad.
Every time I hear the word "faggot," I want a Cinnabon... With a little cup of hot cum.
I think you can tell a lot about a person by their shoe choices.
You should message me if
- you want to
- you don't mind socks in bed
- you don't mind that I can't sit in one position for too long. I fidget. A lot. I also tend to have issues knocking things over.
- you can teach me something.
- you will fold my fitted sheets. I hate those damn things.
- you are okay with these numbers:
36
26
38
- you can get me back into rock climbing.
- you are Han Solo released from carbonite
- you still want to.
- you would like me to continue beginning sentences with "you."

So, we are pretty much guaranteed to not get along if any of the following apply:
- you are against gay marriage, a racist, a bigot, etc.
- you plan to convert me to some kind of religion. I grew up in a very Christian household. I then got my own brain and decided it wasn't for me. If you are religious, that's perfectly fine, but don't expect me to go to church with you or debate the finer points of the Old Testament.
- you don't cry when the kid in Hardball dies. You're a heartless swine.

You know why this is amazing:
She wasn't doing a thing I could see. Except standing there, leaning on a balcony railing, holding the universe together.
