World traveler. Indoor kid. Excessively energetic. Polyamorous. Kinkster. Caffeine addict. Moderately adventurous. Intersectional feminism. Nasty woman. Hufflepuff. Trash panda.
IG: 0mgitsRachel - it is basically an account devoted to my TWO (2) cats. And sometimes the dog. Cause he's too handsome.
Memorizing all of the lyrics to Hamilton.
Traveling, when I can.
Taking my dog for long walks.
Drinking a lot of coffee.
Making banana bread.

Why does my dog eat everything? Why did he eat the corner of my fleece blanket? Where did he get that rock from? Why is he eating that rock? Will he ever stop eating my shoes? Where does he find all these paper towels.
Doing something fun.
At a comedy show.
Hanging out with my friends or the animals.
Playing fetch with Aoko. She plays fetch. Though. It's more like she's trained me to throw a toy for her to make it more interesting.
I'm kind of sick of Felicia Day.
I don't like Game of Thrones. I tried. I really tried. But... I just can't.
After many tries, I just don't think American Gods is for me. I can't get into it.

You are a fellow kinkster.

"Have a summah" means something to you. Non-summah is a beast.
I am NOT outdoorsy. I will not go hiking, biking, kayaking, rock climbing, tubing, swimming in something that is not a pool, or camping with you. Ever. I just won't. I will however swim in a pool, hang out in a hot tub, or porch sit with you. Porch sitting is about as outdoorsy as I get.

Thinking of signing up for a Lyft account? User my referral code!
You Shouldn't Message Me If:
You think it might be a good idea to call me a "crazy cat lady." Even jokingly. Just don't. I am a cat lady. I love my cats. That does not make me a crazy cat lady.
If you voted for Trump. Please move along.
If you do not consider yourself a feminist, you should also move along...
A note to the men-folk. Quit negging. Just stop it. And if you don't know what it means, please go google it. And then stop doing that thing that you were either aware of or unaware of doing.
If either all or more than half of your pictures are group shots. Please get some solo pics. I don't have the time or energy to figure out which person is the same in 5 group shots. And a note to dude people, that pic of you with your arms around two girls at that bar is not cute and does not make you look like a big important desirable male. So stop it.
If you're just looking for a hook up - I am NOT your girl. I need more of a connection.
