My self-summary
Whew! This self-summary stuff isn't easy! Let's see, I tend to over-punctuate. I have spatial-relationship issues and therefore cannot accurately judge what size Tupperware to store leftovers in. I listen to records (as in vinyl), and prefer to read in coffee shops so as to pretend that I'm not being terribly antisocial. I'm pretty social, am consistently inconsistent, and love having random adventures.

I do a yearly re-read of Pride and Prejudice however this year I've expanded to all of Jane Austen's works. I've never before read so many books by the same author in succession that weren't part of a series. I don't know that I'll do it again...

I've recently started writing letters with various friends. A great letter is a true art form.
I’m really good at
board games, writing greeting cards and being really awkward.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I love to laugh.

Six things I could never do without
1) does an endless supply of books count as a single thing or am I limited to six(books that is)? We'll count that as one until further clarified...
2) my glasses/contacts
3) toothbrush
4) music
5) family/friends
6) the internet (specifically wikipedia- yeah yeah, I know it's not terribly accurate but it provides these handy little links that feed my curiosity)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How not to get Jedi mind f@#!%$. How it is that people can be doppelgängers and yet have such different genetic make up. What my next sewing project will be. Men with epic and well groomed facial hair. Matching undergarments.
On a typical Friday night I am
There is none such thing, but alas I endeavor to be in search of live music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I live in perpetual fear of mispronouncing words and looking foolish. Although I do feel looking foolish helps keep you humble, incorrect pronunciation, on the other hand, just makes you look stupid.
