My self-summary
I'm a total extrovert, but I am particular about who I spend my time with. I have close friends whom I love dearly. These days I rather hang out at a chill bar with a few friends or hang out with one or two people, than go to a busy club or hit a huge party.

People seem to think I'm funny, which is good, because I get away with being an ass much easier that way. My humor lies somewhere along the lines of Something Positive meets A Softer World.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a manager at a local animal shelter. It's the best job I've had. I love helping animals, but it's hard work and long hours.

I spend a lot of my time focusing on social justice issues. I'm a proud feminist who strives for inclusion. Understanding and improving the world around me is a driving force in my life.

I want to get back to camping and just being outside more. I like hiking, swimming, and exploring old places. I want to spin fire more often.
I’m really good at
I'm amazing in the kitchen. Italian and Indian dishes are my favorite to prepare, but I can cook almost anything. I want to start making my own fresh pasta, so I need tasters. Any volunteers?

I'm really good with animals. I can get along with a tiny kitten, a great dane, or a ten foot python. I like em all. If you don't like my pups, that's a deal breaker.

I may be a bit well known for my internet trolling skills. I can't help it if schadenfreude is deeply satisfying. It's chocolate for the soul, that's why mine has so many cavities.
The first things people usually notice about me
Either my smile or my eyes. I'm pretty laid back, so I'm usually smiling or being goofy. I can be loud and that definitely gets me noticed. I'm just... enthusiastic. I'm always honest and I'm not afraid to say what I think. Don't worry; it's mostly charming. I'm kind of well known for my snark, and a few too many people in the burn community refer to me as "that bitch from the internet".

Being cute keeps me from getting my ass kicked as much as I probably should. Being part of a group that hosted a fighting ring at burns definitely started to change that. I'm willing to bleed for my burn and I'm not afraid to fight. Pain is good for ya, right?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite books are Zami: A New Spelling of My Name, Cunt, Marabou Stork Nightmare, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Bitch! In Praise of Difficult Women, Catcher In The Rye, The Grapes of Wrath, A Clockwork Orange, Pet Sematary, Something Wicked This Way Comes, Isaac Asimov's Short Stories, Of Mice and Men, Flowers in the Attic, Naked Lunch, Baghdad Burning, Parable of the Sower (the Butler novel, not the bible passage), The Count of Monte Cristo. I love to read and I could go on, but I'm not here to write my own book.

I love horror movies like Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Night of the Living Dead, Pet Sematary, Zombie, both Halloweens, I Spit on Your Grave, Last House on the Left, Bad Taste, Dead Alive, etc. I also like other kinds of movies like The Royal Tenenbaums, Clockwork Orange, So I Married A Strange Person, Boondock Saints, Gangster Squad, Silver Linings Playbook, Virgin Suicides, Little Miss Sunshine, Imaginary Heroes, The Squid and The Whale, Once, ... Okay, this list is getting to be a little too long. I better move on. I'm also a sucker for dance movies like Footloose (the remake and the original), Center Stage, Dirty Dancing, etc.

Okay, this list isn't complete, but hell, can you name all the bands you like? Okay so Left Rights, Dillenger Escape Plan, Placebo, The Beatles, Buddy Holly, Veil of Maya, The Killers, Zimmer's Hole, SOD, Alix Olson, Blondie, Ramones, Green Day, Suicide Machines, Mindless Self Indulgence, Tub Ring, Animals As Leaders, Johnny Cash, Buzzcocks, Dillinger Four, Fugazi, Frank Sinatra, The Clash, The Ghost Inside, The Specials, Rage Against the Machine, Louis Armstrong, The Queers, Rancid, Periphery, Deftones, Sex Pistols, OutKast, 21 Pilots, NOFX, Coheed and Cambria, Dashboard Confessional... I need to stop.

My very favorite kind of food in the world is Ethiopian. It's deeply satisfying and spicy, with complex flavors from simple ingredients. It's what food is all about. I love sushi and get regular cravings. I am a total foodie so I'll try anything three times. (Only trying something once or twice isn't fair.)
Six things I could never do without
1- Passionate, curious friends.
2- Dancing in inappropriate places.
3- Bad decisions.
4- Reading materials. I need new information and I need things that challenge me.
5- Pandora. I really don't own much music because I want too much. So I love my pandora. I get to listen to all the different kinds of music that make me happy.
6- My pups. I love my babies. Becky is a ridiculous pit/beagle mix. I call her my piggle. I have a little basset/pit mix named Maggie Moo who I'm looking for an adopter for. She's fucking adorable, but could use someone who is home more than I am to work on her separation anxiety and puppy manners.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My mind wanders faster than toddler heading toward a shiny object, so I don't spend a lot of time thinking about any one thing. Lately thoughts of sex scandals and world domination have kept me rather well entertained.

Also, why is Die Hard: The Musical not a thing?
On a typical Friday night I am
Looking for something low key to do. I work Saturdays, so I typically want to grab a drink and talk some shit. I'm still willing to miss out on some sleep for a good adventure though.
You should message me if
You've read any of my profile or have something more to say than hi. I appreciate it if you think I'm cute but that's really not a conversation starter. So please, no more "Hi, you're *adjective*" Those messages are boring.

I'm down to meet up for coffee or a beer if it seems like we have something in common.
The two of us
