I am kind of strange.
I’m a university student in northern New Jersey, just a bit away from NYC. I hail from Little Rock, Arkansas, or St. Louis, Missouri, depending on when you ask and why. I like Joss Whedon, Neil Gaiman, Kevin Smith, gender studies, chocolate, and fish custard. I make geeky references all the time because I am a nerdy elitist snob who likes to see which folks get them. Sorry, non-geeks, you lose points. But hey, you probs didn’t get picked on as much in gradeschool? I hope not, anyway.

I'm beautiful (and handsome), smart, kind hearted, and did I mention beautiful? But I think my best quality is my modesty.

|Favorite Thing to Autostraddle||
I Went to the Movies Hoping Just Once The Monster Got the Girl
He was as hungry for love as I. He lay in his cave
I was hardly able to stay in my seat as the possibilities
and in comes Jock Mahoney or Steve Cochran and takes
I almost shouted into the dark that life with Jock
I went to the movies hoping that just once somebody
“What’s the matter with him?” the cheerleaders asked
“Nothing. He’s weird, that’s all.”
