•Goofball. Geek. Gracious. Grammatically competent.
•Unassuming introvert, hippie, Ren Faire enthusiast, social chimera.
•INFP. NPR or death. Dyed in the wool liberal. MAGA=GTFO.
•Trying to reconnect with my inner Gypsy after 16 years of having many inborn passions, desires, and interests quashed and quelled by the crushing force of suburban domestication.
•Trying to meet new and interesting people and seeing what develops. Up for friendship, romance, and/or hanging with kind spirits with whom to cut loose.
...:::WHAT I'M DOING WITH MY LIFE:::...
•Trying to forge a new path after having spent a good number of years in the proverbial ditch.

•Making bulleted lists
...:::FAVORITE BOOKS, MUSIC,SHOWS, MUSIC, & FOOD:::...
•Books: Anything by Neil Gaiman.
•Movies: Anything by the Coen Brothers.
•Music: I love losing myself in music. I eschew most run-of-the-mill rock, pop, country, R&B, and rap in favor of stuff that's a little more off-beat, including: Animal Collective, Sufjan Stevens, F*ck Buttons, Chelsea Wolfe, Sigur Ros, Throwing Muses, Explosions in the Sky, and Nick Drake.
•Shows: MST3K, Tim and Eric Awesome Show, GoT, Kids in the Hall
•Podcasts: This American Life, Radiolab, Sound Exploder, 99% Invisible
•Food: Cover anything with enough Sriracha and I'm bound to love it. I could eat hummus for every meal for the rest of my life and die happy. Same for Mexican food.
...:::SIX THINGS I COULD NEVER DO WITHOUT:::.
•Time set aside for introspection
•That particular shade of otherworldly, glowing aquamarine one sometimes glimpses in a thundercloud pregnant with hail
•The exhilaration brought about by standing outside as a storm front moves through
•Hayao Miyazaki films
...:::I SPEND A LOT OF TIME THINKING ABOUT:::...
•Whether I'd be more well-suited to the Seelie or Unseelie Court if I were of the Fey
•Yoshi's theme song from Mario 3 (I think I'm cursed)
•Reasons to get a tattoo
•Equally reasonable counterpoints to the above
•How it is that I never discovered Indian trap music until recently.
...:::YOU SHOULD MESSAGE ME IF:::...
•You're a left-leaning, kind-hearted free-thinker
•You would enjoy the conversation, company, or companionship of someone whose character, mannerisms, and outlook on life have been formed into an absurd and affable assemblage by disparate influences, serendipity, and hardships.
•Looking to have fun and form strong bonds of friendship, but at the same time wouldn't be averse to mutually commit to a relationship should a spark eventually kindle a flame.
•In need of someone with whom to cut loose a bit, and enthused about using chemistry to enhance quality of life occasionally.
