My self-summary
I’m a fine arts major with a geek veneer. Enough to catch references like “we do the weird stuff,” but not enough to draw flow charts when I’m on vacation. Enough to know my car is TARDIS blue, but not enough to think bacon is a food group. And enough to be addicted to my smart phone, but not enough to want to see math theorems you published in college.

Often, I just can't help making fun of things - but I try not to if it's a customs official, a scary bouncer, or my mom when she's already pissed off. I'm a smartass, but I do have a survival instinct.

My biggest obsessions are blues music and blues dancing. Slow, sultry, sweaty, and sweet. Secondary is fusion, lindy hop and east coast swing. And lately I've discovered west coast swing, which is often turning out to be my best night of dancing each week.

Looking through all the facebook photos of me and my friends, I realized that dancers are very cuddly bunch of people.

I can drive a left-handed stick shift on the wrong side of the road, but can't figure out how to turn the rear wiper off.

I love my car. I really, really love my car. I would hug my car, if I could figure out how to do it without touching the paint.

Also thanks to my car, I've become familiar with the concept of deferred adjudication. Again, and again. And again...

A co-worker once accused me of trying to intimidate him with vocabulary.

I think I may finally be too old for Two Ton Tuesdays. Or at least for dancing in Texas summers without air conditioning.

The most horrifying sentence I've read lately: "If you look closely at the bite area, you may be able to see the spider's fang marks."
In the immortal words of the Tick... EGADS!

Ten years later, I finally got around to watching Firefly. Not having seen it was hurting my geek cred...
What I’m doing with my life
Lots of dancing. Lots of laughing with/making fun of my friends. Enjoying my job. Working in my yard. Traveling, hiking up big hills, spending time with my family, reading, and making subversive plans to bring blues dancing to SA.

Also, just in case anyone is scared by all the dancing talk: I'm looking for someone to date, not dance with. I already have tons of friends to dance with, so I'm not gonna pressure anyone into trying it. Unless you wanted to, of course.
I’m really good at
Procrastination, mouthing off, sarcasm, being a force of evil, shoveling gravel, and occasionally looking really stupid. Also traveling light, bad puns, random social awkwardness, and boring people with too many technical details about my car.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I can't remember if I've met them before, probably...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Doctor Who (David Tennant is my doctor), Torchwood, the Tick, Arrested Development, Black Books, Being Human (the UK version), Sherlock, Luther. Don't have cable, just Netflix. Spent about a year re-watching all of DS9; it gets much better with the addition of Klingons.

Music: lots of local stuff like Karl Morgan, Porterdavis, Guy Forsyth, Asylum Street Spankers, Ruben V, Ruthie Foster, Two Tons, and Seth Walker. Also Mofro, Chris Thomas King, Nina Simone, Keb Mo, Roxy Perry, Robin Rogers, Janiva Magness, Jason Ricci. And lately, some neo-soul like Raphael Saadiq, Ben L'oncle Soul, Leela James; Sneaker Pimps, Massive Attack, Radio Citizen.

Favorite books: A Soldier in the Great War; the Narnia series; LOTR trilogy; and pretty much anything by Carl Hiaasen.
Six things I could never do without
This is boring, I'm going to list my top 6 levels of personal hell instead. The ones specific to me, not the generic crap everyone hates like airports, post offices and the DMV. Counting down in order of importance:

6. Balboa workshops
5. Grocery stores (epicenter of all human stupidity)
4. Hipster bike shops (really, they're like nesting grounds for hipsters)
3. Summer barbecues in Texas (for god's sake, people, we invented air conditioning to avoid just this kind of suffering)
2. Louisiana

And the number one level of personal hell:

1. Baby showers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My set list for the zombie apocalypse, now that I know a blues house party will be involved.
On a typical Friday night I am
blues dancing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
So why is it that if you tell co-workers you're going to relax in a hot bath with a book and glass of wine, they think it's all classy; but if you say you're gonna watch Doctor Who and drink vodka in your underwear, they think you need some kind of intervention?

I'm not domestic. A recent inventory of my flour and sugar canisters included: a spare charger for my phone, an mp3 player, a Christmas stocking for my cat, and a package of fossilized sweet tarts.

The egg compartment in my fridge is full of pez dispensers.

I *might* have a mild Klingon fetish.
You should message me if

- you're not looking for someone to have kids with.
- you're not vanilla.
