My self-summary
I'm a geek (CURRENTLY IN A VERY HAPPY MONOGAMOUS RELATIONSHIP, THANK YOU) for the most esoteric of things.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a graduate student studying computer science at FSU.

When I'm not working on school-related things and working (systems administration), I sew and participate in the Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), which indulges my love of history as well as my love of physically-evident work.
I’m really good at
some pretty odd skills. I sew both modern clothing and historical (which is helpful for my participation in my local SCA barony); I cook; I sing and play violin and viola. I'm also a pretty dang good person to have on a pickup trivia contest team.
The first things people usually notice about me
Either my skin or my eyes or the juxtaposition of the two. I'm very pale but have very dark eyes, and many people find this disconcerting to look at.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: anything by Sharon Shinn, Tolkein, Jacqueline Winspear
Movies: the Lord of the Rings films, Hero, Stardust
Music: I'm not that into pop and rap, but I'll give anything a listen at least once.
TV: I actually don't watch TV very often at all. In college, I had zero television access, which kind of broke the habit, so I don't watch it now.
The six things I could never do without
basic hair care products (such as shampoo and a hairbrush; it's a pet peeve of mine when my hair refuses to behave), water, good walking shoes, maps, sunscreen, and--to pull a Gollum--needle and thread.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
things I haven't yet tried or learned. I'm now getting better about just going out and *doing* things instead of just thinking about them!
On a typical Friday night I am
If there isn't a local SCA event, swing dancing! Swing gives you a little more freedom than club dancing and can be a nice little workout if you've got plenty of energetic partners. I'm not the best by any stretch of the imagination, but if I don't practice, I'll never get better.

If circumstances call for a night in, I'll be working on a sewing project, either sewing or researching/planning.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am not as healthy as I should be. This is something that I am working on, both by trying to improve what I eat and by getting more exercise.

It's probably glaringly obvious, but I'm a fairly private person.
You should message me if
You just want someone to talk to. I'm an enthusiastic listener (when I'm not half-asleep due to exhaustion), particularly about things I'm not that familiar with.
