~ PJ O'Rourke
I am and yearn for cultural amalgam
I've lived many places and find my myself settling in. Its a good choice. I'm coming to terms with the fact that I like brightly colored things. I like to get the best of both worlds. My shoes fluctuate between size 9-10. I like indoor wall climbing. I'm not very good at sports involving balls. You'll beat me at pool, unless I'm really a shark. I don't like sleeves, and wear girl tank tops because they fit better. I like food, especially the kind eaten with your hands. You cook better than I do. I get satisfaction from a home plumbing job done right. I don't consider a disjointed collusion of "I" sentences to be good writing. I don't own a car, but I do have kayak racks. I'm so up my own ass that I work at a non-profit. I'm sarcastic. Make me laugh and I'll like you. I love movie previews but hate reading the backs of books. Recommend me a good book or movie. I have a not-so-secret obsession of watching music videos on youtube. Gender/sexuality ambiguity is HOT. I like proportioned bodies. I drink like I'm half-irish. I could probably kick you in the head. I know exactly when to act my age, and when not to. Its usually the latter. I know enough to know that I don't know much. Please keep me posted on news, political climates, verbose vernacular, and philosophy. I greatly enjoy how you think.
I am multifaceted, adaptable, and invigorating
I hope to go to grad school (soon) and get an MBA with an international development focus. Though I currently deal with animals, people are my passion. I'm a social scientist at heart, and want to be part of the development process.
I've been told that I radiate a friendly and comforting vibe. They also tell me I'm vibrant and look young for my age. One of these days I won't get carded...
ALDOUS HUXLEY, Pillars of the Earth, CLIVE BARKER, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, HARUKI MURAKAMI, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and all Douglas Adams, The Heart of Darkness, The Stranger, The Communist Manifesto, Ethical Slut, Goodnight Moon, DAVID SEDARIS, Ishmael, Antigone, KURT VONNEGUT, Fingerprints of the Gods, My Side of the Mountain (REMEMBER that book?!?). I quite enjoy the French existentialists. Satre's my BOY!
As a side note I detest Ayn Rand, I believe her writing removes compassion from the human equation and thus spawns heartless Libertarian bastards that step on anyone and everyone to get to the top. And no, I wasn't dumped by someone who just read Atlas Shrugged.
What Dreams May Come, Before Sunrise, I <3 Huckabees, Pan's Labyrinth, Blade, Hellraiser I and II (and all Clive Barker), Labyrinth, Citizen Kane, Never Ending Story, Clockwork Orange (and all Stanley Kubrick) Zoolander, Army of Darkness, Shaolin Soccer, Drunken Master and Legend of the Drunken Master, ZOOLANDER, If Lucy Fell, Pirates of the Carribean, AI, Boondock Saints, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Peter Pan, Coming to America, Spinal Tap (and all Christopher Guest), Princess Bride, Quills, Flight of the Navigator, PORN, Finding Nemo, Donnie Darko, Amelie, City of Lost Children, , Seven, The Craft, Death to Smoochy, Fight Club, The Jungle Book, PORN, Vampire Hunter D, Ricki - O, Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Edward Scissor Hands (and all Tim Burton), Back to the Future Trilogy, Man Bites Dog, Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie, PORN, Life is Beatiful, The Royal Tenembaums, LIFE AQUATIC (and all Wes Anderson), The Dark Crystal...and The Red Balloon and The Bicycle Thief for you uppity French connoisseurs.
Though I have my roots in punk, metal and crazy shows, I also like the dancy electronic and goth/industrial stuff. I take time to see great live shows and DJs, as deeply respect people who can play string instruments well.
Bands/groups DJs I'm into now: Arcade Fire, The Knife, The Cure, Micheal Franti, Ferry Corsten, Journey, Gogol Bordello, Spalding Rockwell, MGMT, Depeche Mode, Erasure, The Life Aquatic Soundtrack, Trance Global Nation Vol.2, Benny Benassi, Deftones, Gorrilaz, Republica, Johnny Cash, Glitch Mob, and the list goes on...
Food: Vietnamese Pho is a staple of mine, as well as most Asian cuisine. Sushi is amazing, and I also like to get veggie burgers with bacon on it - just to get a weird look. Tastes good too.
I'm not picky with food, and love it all. There's a very good chance I've eaten way more ridiculous stuff than you in my travels and enjoyed every minute of it.

I really get into movies and the underlying philosophical meanings behind the deep ones.
I'm highly intrigued by the similarities between ancient civilizations and how advanced they were comparatively to where we are now. Don't get me started on ancient civilizations if you aren't prepared for an energetic talk which could result in me swiping the coffee out of a passerby's hand on accident.
Sense of humor required.
