My self-summary
I love words, music, films, and television. It helps that I do that creative-type stuff for a living! I can also play any single piano piece in existence, as long it's specifically the first movement of Moonlight Sonata, a couple Chopin preludes, and none of the others.

If I could meet 5 dead people they'd be (in no particular order): Carl Sagan, Abraham Lincoln, MLK, Jimi Hendrix and Jack Vance. Each of them has influenced my life and opinions in such a way that I wouldn't be the same person without them.

I'd like to go back in time and visit medieval England, but an alternative version of England that has no completely awful plague that wiped out a third of the planet. Oooor the racism. You know what, maybe I'll just go to Medieval Times instead...

I like being a cornucopia of random knowledge and facts. I like trivia games. I can usually beat my friends at Trivial Pursuit, but I think that's more because they're bad at it than I'm any good. We'll keep that last part just between us, however. :)
What I’m doing with my life
I have an overwhelming passion for books, writing, and well edited film and TV. The last one makes a bit of sense as I work in post-production for reality TV. Additionally, I'm working on an independent feature and do some writing for a video game on the side.

Current SINK looking to DINK.

Contemplating moving to Canada.
I’m really good at
I am pretty good at getting along with most anybody. I am a good cook, a good reader and a good conversationalist. I have a moderate vocabulary and etymology fascinates me to no end. I was told recently by a friend that I'm "really good at making my friends feel intelligent and capable!" which I thought was a nice thing to say.

Boring life stuff. I have my shit together. My friends usually come to me for advice about insurance, banking etc. That is super boring, and now I'm maybe thinking passively racist? Hey, let's get the Jew to do our financial planning! Apparently my friends are racist bastards.

I'm *not* good at the visual arts. I can't draw, paint, model, sketch, none of it. Terrible. Consequently, my house is a gallery of some of my extremely talented family's and friends' art.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told by more than one person that I have kind eyes. I dig that.

Six things I could never do without
Freedom, Books, Music, Humor, Internet, and Tropes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why my cats will come over to me after I've fed them expecting more food, acting all surprised when I don't feed them again. You get the same amount of food every day, cats, it's not that hard. Is this about that time my roommate fed you twice as much? That was one time, and it was like two years ago, get over it!

How could no one have the OkC profile name "Das_Booty"?! If I was a girl that would definitely be my profile name!
On a typical Friday night I am
Going nuts taking drugs drinking boozing and partying until I fall down. And by those things I mean playing a board game and watching Game of Thrones.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I know it's a painfully unhip admission for someone of my generation, but I don't really get comic books. I've never understood the appeal. I've tried a few times and I could just never get into them. I am happy to be educated on the subject, though!
You should message me if
If you've ever read Jack Vance, Cordwainer Smith, or Ursula LeGuin.

No seriously if you read Vance, just message me so we can dork out. We'll have more ringlets than we know what to do with.

If you want to cuddle my cats and are willing to let me play with your dog, that would be perfect. That's not an euphemism, though it sounds like it should be.

You would like to discuss the merits and drawbacks of a free-market pseudocapitalist system as compared to the antonymous system of socialism controlled by a single governing body. Or the GoT finale, omg Tommen, noooo!
The two of us
