My self-summary
Creativity has always been part of my life. I love inviting people into my fantasies, and I’m a language enthusiast in general. I think it's incredible that so many different minds can know others exist and interact with them.

Politics and religion: I'm a conservative atheist. That does not mean I'm a republican or that I hate "God." I simply don't believe in any. I try to keep an open mind, though.

I want to find a woman as faithful as I am. I'm a sapiosexual - to me, intelligence and wit are more attractive than typical ideas of “sexiness.” I’m not looking for a hook-up and won’t have intercourse at all unless I'm ready and willing to provide for a kid. A good sense of humor is important in my match, as is creativity – a fascination with life beyond the superficial and reveling in it.
What I’m doing with my life
I dream of being a writer (well, a paid one). My career plan is to try to get hired as a copyeditor or something else involving language.
I’m really good at
English, trivia, Catchprase, logic puzzles, unintentional arson....
The first things people usually notice about me
Maybe that I like five-dollar words, sarcasm, and facepalm jokes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
(in the order I thought of them)
Books, especially ones with complex, deep characters, plots, and/or beautiful prose.
Fantasy: Brandon Sanderson, the Harry Potter series
Sci-fi: Philip K. Dick is a genius.
Humor: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Classics: 1984, To Kill a Mockingbird. (You know what you get when you cross classic lit with alcohol? Tequila mockingbird!)
Poetry that shows you something new about something you already know or something you already know about something new. Emily Dickinson, e. e. cummings

Movies: Casablanca, 12 Angry Men, Les Miserables (I haven't seen the new one, though.), Once, The Incredibles. Action isn't my first choice, but I can enjoy; thrillers, classics, (clean) comedy, and good indie flicks.

Music: old Evanescence, Paramore, Breaking Benjamin, Hey Monday, The Hush Sound, Blue October, Amaranthe, Hatebeak, classical, movie soundtracks, techno/trance/electronica, and dubstep. I'll think about it all day if it's lyrically interesting and my subconscious won't let it go if it's catchy.

Food: Yes. But seriously, Italian, Chinese, Mexican, whatever. Breakfast, peanut butter, white chocolate macadamia nut cookies. Cheesecake!
Six things I could never do without
(besides biological necessities etc)
(Composition book
Blue or black pen)
or (a word processor
The Internet)
Good books
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I love philosophy. I'm particularly interested in ethics, metaphysics, and what science has to shed on those topics. Plots, poems, songs, big questions, meanings and layers of innocuous quotes, how a sentence's meaning can change with emphasis on one word, conversations I might never have, a change in the dialogue or story of what I've read or seen, and ways to reinterpret rules.
On a typical Friday night I am
I plead the Fifth.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an initiate in the cult of Lord Smooze.
You should message me if
you like family. My parents' is eight strong.

you want someone to watch a movie with, fly paper airplanes with nice messages at mall-goers, make up stories about passers-by, get feedback on your art, or almost anything else.

Don't say only "Hi" or "What's up?" or make any sexual advances, and if you're religious, only show interest if you'd be cool with someday marrying an atheist. I respect your right to believe, but am annoyed by attempts to proselytize.
The two of us
