My self-summary
I'm not entirely sure what to put here, so I suppose I'll just go with some random statements about myself:

--I've got some pretty nerdy interests.
--I love a good beer, and will only drink American macrobrews under extreme duress.
--While I'm a social, political, and economic liberal (in the American sense of the term), I seem to be kind of a prudish conservative for the gay community.
--I love to cook, especially for other people.
--I've recently gotten over the shame related to who I am and come out of the closet as a fan of electropop.
--"I won't dance--don't ask me." Unless I've been drinking.
--I may have to go into rehab soon to get help dealing with my Netflix addiction.

Also, something you should know. I'm the kind of person who sets a goal of reading all of the winners of the Hugo for best novel. And then has second thoughts because maybe I should go with the Nebula instead.

I am nerdy, sardonic, and compassionate
What I’m doing with my life
Preparing to move out to CA with my partner, where he recently found employment with a major tech firm. (Computer science is WAY more lucrative than higher education.)

I also currently serve as the chapter adviser for my old chapter of Sigma Nu and on DePauw's Greek Life Advisory Council.
I’m really good at
I'm particularly good at rapidly recalling random facts. Pick a topic, and I probably have some random, totally useless fact the contribute to the conversation. Also, I've been told that I'm good at listening, and occasionally good at giving advice. I'm also one of the best cooks in my family, although that's not really saying much.

I also used to be a virtuoso cowbell player in the DPU Pep Band. Due to my busy "real world" schedule, I now only serve as guest cowbell.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my exceptional nerdiness. And the fact that I'm a bit on the short side. I'm a little shy when I first meet people, so I'm not really sure what image I project other than that. Once I get to know you though, I'll pretty much yack about anything.

Also, I have a large pair of wings instead of arms. Unfortunately, they're useless for flight, and their only useful purpose is as a pair of giant feather dusters.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Six things I could never do without
1. My friends. The rest of these are only because the question asks for six.
2. The Internet
3. My iPod
4. My glasses
5. Caffeine
6. Your mom

Honorable Mention: Pants.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why the world sucks so much and how to make it better. On a more personal level, such Buddhist leaning topics as what causes suffering, and what my original face was before I was born.

Also the best way to set in motion my plans for world domination. ("Are you pondering what I'm pondering?")
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably pining away and trying to keep myself busy until I join the boyfriend in CA.

Either that, or I'm indulging in my hobby of haberdashery. (Mercury poisoning is a bitch.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am unable to change the radio station if Garrison Keillor is on. I'm usually not even interested in what he's saying (especially when he's reciting shitty poetry on the Writer's Almanac), but his voice has a weird, folksy charm.
You should message me if
Since we're new, the partner and I are looking for fun people to hang out with in the area.
The two of us
