My self-summary
I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way.

No, but really, I'm not bad. Well, that bad. Define bad and I'll tell you if it's really me or just the drawing. If we "match"ed I highly encourage getting in touch. Apparently when it comes to online dating stuff I'm brave but I'm chicken-shit (name that tune!). I am much braver in person for some odd reason.

I always wanted to be an X-Man or a Tenenbaum. I'm a blended mix of dry wit, nerdiness, and big words. I drink off-brand Redbull during all-nighters. I constantly have way too much caffeine in my bloodstream and it makes me seem far more hyper than I am when I'm not stimulant-ed.

I'm a recent NYC transplant from Boston.

In first meeting situations I can come off as over-talkative, but that is really a nervous habit more than a personality trait. Once I get comfortable I tend more towards silence with the occasional bon mot.

Damn, 1000 words is a lot. What else? I love tattoos and have 5 (though one is unfinished until I can finance the final touches). I like rock & roll/rockabilly/punk styles. Artists/musicians make me swoon. I sometimes accidentally put on a southern affect without thinking. I like to stand in the rain (without my wallet or phone in my pocket for safety) and just let myself get soaked through and through.

When I get an iced beverage from Starbucks and am wearing sunglass I like to pretend I'm a Mary Louise Parker/Nancy Botwin style drug dealer/suburbanite. Given my propensity towards iced mochas in the summertime, this daydream tends to pop up a lot.

I want a guy who will be monogamous and nice to his mother. And I want someone who likes musicals but knows to just shut his mouth when I’m watching Lost. And I want someone who thinks being really into cars is lame and strip clubs are gross. I want someone who will actually empty out the dishwasher instead of just taking out forks as needed… like I do. I want someone with clean hands and feet, and beefy forearms like a damn Disney prince! And I want him to genuinely like me, even when I’m old.
What I’m doing with my life
Slowly becoming Courtney Cox in Cougartown.
I’m really good at
Reading, writing, coming up with droll remarks and inappropriate jokes. Pretending to know what I am talking about for a variety of things. Quoting Shakespeare, TV shows, movies. Knowing useless trivia about pop culture.

Six things I could never do without
1. iPod and/or music of some kind
2. Wi-fi
3. A slight sense of existential dread
4. A strong hair pomade
5. My Mary-Poppins-esque bag
6. Dunkin' Donuts coffee
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Sophie's choice. What my X-Man superpower/codename would be. What objects in my house I would use to hit a horror movie style serial killer if one came after me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Dancing up on table tops, taking too many shots, kissing people and then forgetting, etc.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If the clip of the last scene of Six Feet Under with Sia's "Breathe Me" comes on anywhere near me I will start ugly-crying.

Every Halloween, I pick a person who annoys me, I figure out their deepest, darkest fears, what would psychologically break them and ruin their lives forever, and then the next Halloween... I do it.
You should message me if
You like anything I've said in this little description of myself. You like coffee/movies/theatre/dinner.

You should most definitely message me if you agree that even with the crazy retcons, Marvel's universe makes way more sense than DC's. Also message me if that general statement made sense to you.

Also, if you have HBO/HBOGO you should 100% message me.
The two of us
