My self-summary
I'm a person who will stare at an empty self-summary box for an hour, trying to figure out how to phrase things just right, or what order to list information about myself, or whether I should include things like age and height, even though they're listed clearly in other spots on this page, just because that's the kind of thing I used to put in "Describe Yourself" homework assignments when I was 8. I also considered just listing random facts about myself, but then realized I'd probably run out of good ones pretty quick. Also, most of the stuff I'd put there (like say, that I'm a nerd) is pretty easy to figure out from just a cursory glance at any of the other boxes below this one. And another also, I'm way too much of a rambler to make good use of bulleted lists.

Of course, after that hour, I realize that the most telling thing about me would be to just type all of this stuff going through my head when I'm looking at an empty self-summary box.

Because this is me. Sitting alone in the dark, thinking. Not thinking brooding, "alone in the dark" type stuff, but more "is making a smoothie worth cleaning the blender later" stuff. Unfortunately, smoothies are awesome. I really hate cleaning the blender...

Okay, one more thing, just in case someone reading this wants a deeper look into my head (so if you don't, then, spoiler alert? I guess?). So, while I don't consider myself to be a religious person, I do have what I consider to be a person's job as a human being. Two things, actually. To treat other people with dignity, respect, and kindness, regardless of conflict, and if you have kids, to raise them to be better at that than yourself.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm staying busy hanging with my nephew, and trying to keep my eyes on the prize.

Well, none of that's true, actually. I just have that song in my head. I don't even have a nephew... What is true is that I work way too many hours a week at a restaurant.
I’m really good at
... relaxing, useless trivia, and drawing.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, if they know me, they probably notice that I'm me. If they don't, then I really have no idea...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm not even going to try to list books here; seriously, if it has words, and it's in front of me, I'll read it. On the subject of movies, I've never fully understood the appeal of the Star Wars films, and I consider that a failing of my inner nerd. As for music, everyone I work with hates my choices. For more information, ask. And food, I love to try new things, and am always on the hunt for new recipes to try when I have time to cook. (wow, I just re-read that, and it didn't list ANY favorites, so: what I'm reading/watching/listening to/eating right now: "Voice of the Fire" by Alan Moore, Doctor Who DVDs (not a movie, I know, shut up), Fleet Foxes, and some homemade veggiechangas)
Six things I could never do without
Comics, paper, pencil, eraser, music, and Yoo-Hoo chocolate drink. edit: Tea (either un- or barely-sweetend) has replaced Yoo-Hoo as my beverage of choice. Adjust your opinion of me accordingly.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Flying... probably an unhealthy amount of time, honestly.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working. If by some freak chance I happen to not be, I'm probably wasting it. Seriously, I've been doing the food service thing so long, I don't even remember what normal people do on Friday nights anymore.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I own two stuffed animals, Krypto the Super-Pup, and Ace the Bat-Hound.
You should message me if
You're up for late-night chatting, since I pretty much only use this thing to find people to talk to when I'm up until all sortsa ungodly hours. I suppose if you're actually local and want to hang out sometime, that'd work, too.

So I recently spent a day just sitting around, drinking wine and watching eighties kids' movies (in my defense, that particular day, I was pretty sick, but it's not really much of a defense, because the "sick day" thing was just a convenient excuse), and it was suggested that I invite messages from someone who thinks they'd enjoy doing that, as well.

Also, I guess message me if you don't mind long, convoluted sentences with the possibilty of parenthetical statements, because apparenly that's the only way I know how to communicate.
The two of us
