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. :)
Current SINK looking to DINK.

Contemplating moving to Canada.
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.

My favorite accent is of the Scottish variety.
How could no one have the OkC profile name "Das_Booty"?! If I was a girl that would definitely be my profile name!
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!
