My self-summary
What is there to say that can be said? Other than--my goodness, I've gotten old! or--the sky is a very funny color tonight!

J'ai tendu des cordes de clocher à clocher ; des guirlandes de fenêtre à fenêtre ; des chaînes d'or d'étoile à étoile, et je danse.

I might be different tomorrow; today is only today. I should point out that today does find me somewhat involved with fact to be honest I'm crazy in love...but you know things do change so I haven't yet deleted this profile for once and all.

You'll find me: on the couch reading and probably falling asleep, snuggled with kitties, working (mostly) tirelessly to get homeless animals adopted, working in general, trying to maintain order in a house constantly on the brink of chaos, stealing precious time from other endeavors to spend with my Someone....

Yes, I'm back. I'm really hoping to make some new friends in the area who appreciate me despite my flaws. After all, we all have flaws, just some people show them more than others. Due to the nature of mine, they're not easily hidden and so to some people I seem like a walking train wreck. I'm not. I did use to be, but I've gotten a lot better. Please be patient enough to see through the initial shyness and awkwardness. It's what I would do for you.
What I’m doing with my life
Oh, like that's not a big question to ask. Ha!

I wish I knew, honestly.

I can say that after three failed attempts I finally got a degree in SOMETHING! And I'm interested in going back to school part-time for more, because I'm a glutton for punishment. No, actually because I like school.

And I have LETTERS, baby. Not really important ones, but I worked hard for them and I'm semi-proud of them.
I’m really good at
listening, music, math, science, literature (okay, school in general), connecting with animals, keeping secrets, being laughably awkward when trying to meet new people...
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure about this. I don't meet a lot of people and I generally don't ask what they notice about me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite book: The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran
Favorite poetry: anything by T.S. Eliot but also a fan of various feminist-y stuff. I have a whole ton of books upstairs that I like but I'm too lazy to go see who the authors are and too tired to remember them.

Music I like: Tori Amos, Indigo Girls, Dar Williams, Catie Curtis, Patty Griffin, Ani DiFranco, Amanda Palmer, Melissa Etheridge, assorted other singer/songwriters, TMBG, classical of many types, swing/big band, and oh, musicals!

Movies: hmm...I'll own up to liking (or at least being comforted by) some Disney movies. I like various sci-fi films, queer movies (Hedwig!), but NO ZOMBIES!
Everybody always asks me what the deal with zombies is; they just scare me. I am not entirely against watching horror movies but you can be pretty sure that I am going to be sleeping with the light on afterwards...and I require someone to snuggle with, as well. Those are my demands for horror movies; take 'em or leave 'em.

Food: (vegetarian) sushi, fruit--MANGO especially, and I liked dried fruit of most kinds, chai (is a drink but okay), salad, pasta with vodka sauce or pesto, protein bars, veggie burgers, the occasional PBJ sandwich or rice cake with peanut fact, these are pretty much the only things I eat unless I'm being spoiled by having someone cook actual meals for me. Oh, and I suppose I should mention I enjoy chocolate. But I prefer good chocolate.
The six things I could never do without
Unyielding unquestioning support and love from my furry guys.

Hot showers.

Books--good ones, not crappy ones.

Heat and A/C (it's the Midwest, yuck.)

Family and friends (is that a cop-out answer or what?)

Yeah, that's only five things. Sue me.
I wish I could think of something original and witty to put here. Oh well.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
existence...the meaning thereof. What defines a person, and what doesn't define a person. How we change, and how we stay the same. Flying (with wings). How to pay the bills. Thinking "I really should be having a better time right now...I think...maybe."
On a typical Friday night I am
Might be home reading a book or grooming the poodle; might be watching TV, uh, also at home. Hey, I have about a season of DVRed shows to catch up on! I'm not a TV freak, though, there are just a few shows that I like but wasn't able to watch.
Since I sometimes have a life, I might be out at a friend's house! Yay, me! Things I like to do with friends: play Wii (not very well), watch silly movies or The L Word, go to Truman's, go for walks/hikes with our dogs, or perhaps obtain delicious treats of the ice cream-y variety.
With my love. This is the most likely one...or at least my favorite one....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like the color pink. And I like unicorns. In a rather girly way, but I'm not a girly girl.
You should message me if
you can spell and use the English language correctly; you need someone to vent to or at or just tell you that you don't suck.

Those looking for threesomes or polyamorous relationships should move on. Nothing personal, it's just not what I do. And I am currently involved with someone, in some complicated fashion.

Those looking for friends and possible romance who got this far should consider sending a message.

HINT: Paste your message into a Word document and let it correct your spelling and grammar mistakes before sending! (I am fully aware that Word is far from perfect in its grammar capabilities, but it's better than nothing.)
