My self-summary
I'm really just incredibly awesome. Six, maybe even all seven kinds of great.
I'm quite good at maths, I like video games, I read a lot, I really like Scrabble.
I have a chinchilla with a silly name.
I have a silly name.
I'm weird as crap when I'm not at work.
I'm pretty weird at work, too.
I'm outgoing and friendly, and I like everybody. Even you, I don't care what they say. You've always been my favourite.
I haven't got an accent. I mean, obviously, I do, but it's the generic american one.

I like to tell stories. Especially stories about horrible things happening to me that would only be funny in retrospect. Conversation starter?
I moved to Seattle for the weather. Not kidding.

Nothing bad has ever happened to me. I mean, yes, obviously cuts and scrapes and things, but you know. I once fell down a flight of stairs in my dorm while I was on my way to do laundry, breaking my toe. As I lay there at the bottom of the stairwell, face down and covered in dirty underwear, the laundry soap landed on the back of my head and broke my nose. A couple of weeks with raccoon eyes versus a lifetime of telling that story? Clearly a net gain.

Oh! I almost forgot: My username. So, when I was trying to sign up it kept giving me all sorts of variants on "Your_name is already taken, perhaps you'd like Your_name_taco?" and I just honestly can't imagine anybody thinking, "Yeah. You know what my username always needed? Underscore taco."

I am so, so awesome, and I mean that. (This used to be my "I am blank, blank and blank," I'm not just a crazy person.)
What I’m doing with my life
Neglecting my OkCupid! Sorry. I just started a new job a few months ago and it has been taking up lots of my time. Once it calms down a bit, I will try to get back into things.

Even though I'm done with school, every once in a while I think about going back and picking up a degree in something random, like ceramics or library science.

I spend most of my free time doing stuff that seems interesting at the time (reading, writing, climbing rocks/trees/buildings, fiddling with LEGOs, playing in the park) and playing games with my friends. Just sort of generally living it, I suppose. I have great success with five year plans, because they are rarely negatively impacted by going and living in Germany for six months on a whim.
I’m really good at
Oh, all kinds of stuff! Math, spelling, remembering things... Cooking! Quite good at that. I was also a sushi chef, people seem to like to know that. Remembering things. I am always well prepared for anything, and not just in case MacGyver needs my help.

Kissing. What? I can't help it.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, that and my aphasia. You know that feeling when you can't quite think of the word you want? It's a bit like that, except that instead of being unable to think of a word, it's as though my brain is run by an exceptionally stubborn and difficult file clerk who has given me the wrong word and refuses to accept it as a possibility:
"Little white bird, we eat them all the time. Tastes like everything?"
"Chiclet? I'm... not sure that's right. I think that's square gum."
"It's chiclet, I checked."
"I'm just gonna flap my arms a bit and see if anybody else knows this one."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Ender's Game is my favorite book, but as an adult it makes me realize what a scary weird kid I was. Good Omens and To Kill A Mockingbird are up there as well. I really like short stories, and I read about two books every week. Despite that, I've still probably never read your favorite.

Movie? Josie and the Pussycats. And I will fight you over this. I like Primer (Edit: Eff Primer, FAQ About Time Travel is better), but I'm not much of a fan of Pi or A Beautiful Mind. I always found it vaguely threatening when people would recommend them when they found out that I was good at math or liked Go.

Music. Hm. Yeah, okay.

I love sushi, and everything else. Food is a big one for me. My entertainment budget goes primarily toward eating good food. When I travel, I always write back to my friends and family about all the amazing local places I've eaten and they have to remind me to go see the tourist destinations. Also: Beecher's. Yum.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think about everything, all the time. Things that are going on, things that might occur, things that probably won't occur but I should be prepared for because it couldn't hurt, things other people say, things I say, things I could say later that would be funny. Fish. Words, and where they come from. Bees. Stupid puzzle things. What to eat. Where I left something important. Dwarf Fortress. Whether everybody sees colors the same way. Alliteration. Lists. Etymology, again. Fulfilling genetic imperatives. Bees again, but in a different context. Numbers. Why my phone is beeping at me. Oh, hang on.
On a typical Friday night I am
At work. Sorry.

(I'm not really sorry.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It drives me absolutely nuts when I'm reading your profile and you've filled in this bit to let everybody know that you'd never admit anything private here. Or you suggest that people should message you if they want to. I find this genuinely distressing. Well, unless you mentioned tautology somewhere else in your profile.

I think that I'm hilarious. Sometimes, I go back and read things I wrote a year ago and forgot about, and I'll just completely crack up, lose my mind, wheeze with laughter. It's quite embarrassing if you think about it.
You should message me if
You find me quite attractive.
You're quite attractive. Wink.
You laughed at the bits I where I was being funny.
You'd like to lose at Scrabble. Snap.
Or play some Donkey Kong Country.
You read books more than once.
You laughed at the bits that weren't intentionally funny.
You took the bit about Scrabble as a challenge.
You can handle being corrected when you're actually in the wrong.
You can handle being incorrected occasionally. And ideally, recorrect.
You like food.
Or lists.
You've ever played Quiddler, or Equate.
You've just googled them because you've never played, and now you want to.
You understand the appeal of the creepy, inappropriately timed wink.
You've spot a grammatical or spelling error in my profile and it's suddenly occurred to you that it may have be a trap.
It's sunday.
