My self-summary
I like my coffee complex and whimsical.

I decided a long time ago that the best three words anyone could say are not "I love you," but rather "come with me." I think that this preference is substantially informative.

I am easily entertained because the world is interesting.
What I’m doing with my life
Proximity to cat.
Going outside!

I have a tech theatre background and currently work in a warehouse. Thus, I can climb things and use tools. I have also smoked one cigar, but I was dressed as Groucho Marx at the time. As a counterpoint, I lean introvert and sincerely enjoy being alone with books.

Recently I have learned to throw axes and ride motorcycles (not at the same time (yet)).

I worked at the Renaissance faire for 6 years and I can tell you so many things.

I have been known to wield puppets.

Hoping to do some/more biking/boating/camping trips.
I’m really good at
-Moving things along [wrapping up the formalities; bringing tangents back to a main point; finishing with the matter at hand]
-Being honest and looking for win-win solutions
-Finding the paper towels
-Harmonizing
-Making lists and crossing things off
-Trying
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't know that I stand out at a distance. I think I tend to improve with proximity.

But:

When I return shopping carts to their parking spots at the grocery store, I ride them like a scooter and sometimes go "wheeee!"

Once, a drunk friend told me: "you're nice, Sarah," and began to walk away. Then he reconsidered, turned back, and added, "but you're not THAT nice."

I have this one t-shirt that says, "Just shy (not antisocial). You can talk to me!" I think people notice that. The proclivities, that is, not the shirt.

Also, I have the gnawing suspicion that no matter what, I will always be a shade off from fashionable.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Here are some things I regularly consume:
Radiolab
XKCD
Any beverages which can be described as "brewed"
Weird theatrical one-offs and shoestring budget shows
Neal Stephenson novels
ASMR videos
Intense long-form drama tv (Game of Thrones, etc.)
Four & twenty blackbirds baked in a pie, minus birds and pie
Volumes selected willy-nilly from the library
Nachos
Nerdery
Whiskey, gin martinis
Six things I could never do without
-A destination
-The means to get there
-Physical contact
-Time alone
-Cats
-Serendipity
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What's going on "behind the scenes" of the world.

Things that have a definite - but undiscoverable - answer, like "how many people have made out in this exact spot?

Other people. From a distance, it seems I'm a pretty harsh critic of strangers, but mostly I'm just interested in what's going on in other people's worlds. I would like to see the backstage of lives to which I am not privy.

Antimicrobial resistance
Potentially hazardous asteroids
The high percentage of folks I know who have lost parts of their fingers; what this means for my future
On a typical Friday night I am
Waxing philosophical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Non-theist
Non-monogamous
Childfree
GGG
