My self-summary
I have been really really bad about checking things on here lately, apologies in advance.

According to OKCupid, I fall into the nerd bucket; I thought I was a dork. Anyway, I'm interested in any manner of collective geekery and learning about new things I should feel very strongly about.

Here because I'd like to make friends with some people who didn't read that and immediately close the tab. :)

Also, I know you can see that it says available and that I'm interested in women, but I am mostly interested in befriending since I have noticed that there are a TON of my kind of nerds on here. I mean, really, I don't think I would have as good of a chance at finding this many people who take their fandom(s) seriously if Harry and the Potters played the Highline.

Not really a member of the Cervidae family, but I have been called sprightly.

It's kinda weird trying to figure out what will be the right tone- not too conversational, not too intimidating- when it's usually discouraged to talk endlessly about yourself.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for a big mean corporate coffee chain, you know, the one with a spread-eagle mermaid as the logo, and among the side effects of that I often smell like coffee and have that service worker availability which means midweek drinking and weekend naps. I also do some creative stuff in my free time, mostly drawing, but some writing, and none of it is moneymaking, but I enjoy doing it.

Sometimes I take cheap classes and then apply what I've learned in ways that usually involve eating or drinking or talking overmuch. Eventually I will figure out what it is I know that someone else might actually want to learn about.

Also, I have a frequent shopper card for a hat shop. I feel this says a lot about what I'm doing with my life.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh.
It will be a little harder now that you know it's coming, but I'll rise to the challenge. On a related note, I love karaoke.

I'm also pretty alright at shoulder/back rubs for someone who has never studied it. (Also really good at screwing up my own back, ba-dum-tsch.)

I don't experiment with cooking often enough to feel comfortable with really good, but I'm pretty handy at improvising and when baking always remember the leavening agent.
The first things people usually notice about me
I think it's my height, but it's probably what I'm wearing or that I'm being either extremely friendly or very quiet.
If they meet me on a night out, it's that I get pretty silly when I've had a little to drink.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like too many things, so I tried to keep it down to a small assortment.

Mockingjay (3rd book of The Hunger Games), The Secret Lives of People in Love, Sex at Dawn, The Ethical Slut (those two are accidental companion books), Batwoman: Elegy, She Hulk: Single Green Female, Zombies vs. Unicorns

Delicatessen, The Darjeeling Limited, Paprika, Tangled, Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows 1 & 2, most recently The Avengers.
If they ever make a Wonder Woman or She-Hulk movie, or a movie about Julie D'Aubigny I will probably like it by default, barring horrible mangling.

Psych, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Doctor Who (almost caught up, but a lot of backfill to go), Mad Men, The Guild.

Amanda Fucking Palmer, Lauren Ambrose & the Leisure Class, Rufus Wainwright, La Roux, Crystal Castles, Janelle Monae & Of Montreal. Marina and the Diamonds, Squeeze, Miles Fisher Architecture in Helsinki, Squirrel Nut Zippers

saag paneer, steak quesadilla & elote, honeycomb dark chocolate, fresh bread, avocado oil kettle chips
Six things I could never do without
An internet enabled computer, whether I like it or not. Layering. Something to read. Flat shoes. Public transportation. Colors.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Social issues, new mixed drinks and My Little Pony, usually in that order.
That I should probably develop a desire to jog or do yoga. That that is less fun than reading every blessed thing on the internet about being  non-monogamous or funny cat antics. How to cultivate better habits and when I'll next get to go out to karaoke.

Why so many straight dudes on here make their main photo one where they are facing straight ahead with murdereyes?

Also Valve games and, on occasion, face painting techniques. Infrastructure. Are you aware that the second avenue subway has been coming for 70 years and now that it's underway they have already doomed it to inefficiency?
On a typical Friday night I am

But general night off: eating Indian/Mexican/hot dog delivery while watching Doctor Who, unless I'm out at a bar because someone's friend is leaving somewhere. Also playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf these days; my friend code is 4098 3241 0526

I've noticed most people find this an intimidating question, like, "oh, there's no typical!" or they have to prove they're not boring. But if we all feel that way, then it should be okay to admit that I don't go to secret night markets on a weekly basis, because, fuck, that's exhausting.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It's been a while and I still don't find this section appealing. Sorry if this is usually your favorite.
You should message me if
• You would like to chat, especially if you'd like some more friends for casual hang out good times!
• Or friendly talk about issues and drink times.
• If we have stuff in common, I consider common fandoms a fine starting point for good conversation.

While I am in a serious relationship with a boy, we are not looking for a threesome sitch and I don't expect you to be friends with him just because you're friends with me.

• Tell me why your neighborhood is great! I love hearing about distant lands off exotic subway lines; this city has too much detail to discover it all on my own.

My "don'ts" boil down to having glanced over the stuff above. I am not the droid you're looking for if you think feminist is an insult. If you are not keen on open relationships, that means you don't contact me, not that you are invited to angrily message me.
The two of us
