My self-summary
Life shouldn't be as serious as some people take it, if you ask me. I'm of the opinion that if you stay positive and work hard, things will work themselves out eventually, and in the words of Mel Brooks, "Comedy is the best defense against the universe." I have a lot of respect for people who can laugh at themselves and can put things in perspective.

I am a native Coloradoan in my natural habitat. Denver is my favorite city in all the world and I like to learn a little more about it every day. I'm always up for an adventure to a new place, to a new restaurant or to try out a new activity. I love museums and the like, interesting districts and even the occasional hike. I work downtown and like to go exploring on my lunch hours.

We'd better get this out in the open quickly... I'm definitely a geek. A huge geek of multiple flavors-- literature, video games, bad movies, old people music, cooking, needlecrafts, themed parties. I'm very outgoing and friendly and I like to have fun and break the ice with new people. At home I tend to relax in peace and quiet, though-- I'm a pretty solid INTJ on the ol' Meyers-Briggs.

I have a very dry sense of humor and I always appreciate someone witty who can laugh with me.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in tech support and tech training for teachers. I love my job and love to teach! I used to teach adult high school and I loved that too.

I've been trying to become more active lately and have been looking for fun ways to get my exercise in. I settled on running (I use the term loosely) but would love to try other options. I'm also working on expanding the range of what I can cook, trying new recipes and ordering way more cookbooks than are probably necessary.

That's sort of at odds with the whole "fitness" goal but I really like food...
I’m really good at
Writing, spelling, typing really fast, handcrafts and sewing, coming up with ridiculous comments on the fly, remembering stupid things, killing stuff in videogames, multitasking, making people laugh, speaking very loudly, procrastinating and eating. I find most people are good at the last two, though.

I used to fence, though sort of fell out of it in college. I'd love to get back into it. It's a very interesting sport, particularly if you like pointy things. If you know what I mean. (Foils, what do you think I mean?)
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a very dry sense of humor and I'm pretty laid back. I like to make people laugh.

I guess that wouldn't be the FIRST thing people notice... if you want to get really technical that would probably be that I am short. How exciting.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
To Kill a Mockingbird, The Plague, The Catcher in the Rye, Shakespeare and other assorted other English Major Fare (been there, read that. My favorite Shakespeare is Twelfth Night.) Discworld or just about anything else by Terry Pratchett, Harry Potter, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Anansi Boys and just about anything by Neil Gaiman. Good Omens, of course.

TV Shows
Arrested Development, Firefly, Pushing Daisies, The Mighty Boosh, MST3K, Flight of the Conchords, Reno 911, Bob's Burgers. Also, you win a thousand pretend bonus points if you get the reference from my screen name (It's a cartoon, it's nearly 20 years old.)

I actually don't watch a whole lot of TV. I like to multitask so TV is more of the background noise while I surf the internet or crochet. I watch a lot of PBS cooking shows and travel documentaries. Rick Steves is the man.

Mel Brooks films (Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, etc), the occasional genuinely funny comedy, inept movies that aren't self-aware about it, Zombieland, Yellow Submarine, superhero flicks, doofy action movies... I like escapist movies for the most part. Too big of a wuss for horror movies. Definitely NOT a fan of most romantic comedies. Except Moulin Rouge, my sole girly guilty pleasure.

The Beatles, Queen, Led Zeppelin, Styx, Journey, REO Speedwagon, Jethro Tull, Barenaked Ladies, Boston, Sonata Arctica (Finnish power metal), Coheed and Cambria, etc.

Oh I love me some food. I love all kinds of cuisines and I'm learning how to cook a variety of different things. I will try pretty much everything once. I like to choose a new cuisine or a new restaurant and go on a "food adventure" every so often.
Six things I could never do without
1. My brain. Without a brain, not only can you not think, speak, or feel, but your heart stops beating and you die.

2. My pets. I love all animals, cats and dogs, and I absolutely adore my diabetic cat.

3. My family. We are a big loud Irish and Cajun bunch.

4. My friends.

5. Humor. Or else what's the point?

6. Food. Not just in a "eat food, not die" sense. I like trying different things and learning to cook them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Interesting but pointless minutiae. For example, have you ever heard or thought about a word so much that it doesn't even sound like a word to you anymore? It's called "semantic satiation."
On a typical Friday night I am
Bowling, karaoke, hanging out with my friends or relaxing at home.

Oh, and I love pub trivia. I will be the anchor on your pub trivia team.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I cry at movies. Even some movies that aren't supposed to be tearjerkers. And books. And games. That aren't supposed to be tearjerkers...
You should message me if
If I look interesting. If you've got any questions for me. If you are curious about me. If your computer has a working keyboard attached and a monitor to see with it, alternatively a touchpad or a stylus entry keyboard feature. I mean, I guess you could try doing it telepathically, but I'm not sure how well that works unless you're a cell phone.

Actually, if you are a cell phone, you should message me. That would be really interesting.
