Brief self-description: high-spirited.
Further Ego Fluffing: I like libraries, things that are purple, tea, museums, cats, being a subversive, whimsical fuckery, cackling like nobody is listening, butting heads with authority, flipping off Noah Webster's ghost (seriously, spelling things incorrectly has to be the lamest form of rebellion EVER), cursing at the sky, and bright colours.
Some Details: Presently I work as a substitute teacher, a job I could be better at if I didn't hate being The Man so much. I have a BA in history and plan to attend graduate school in the field of information science. Hopefully an MA in information science will give me the opportunity to rule over a library or a museum without having to pull a violent and extremely bloody coup.
Fun FACT: I collect witch hats.

Hakuna matata, bitches!
The following scenario was once posed to me:
You are the only human left on Earth, against an insurmountable horde of zombies (read: everyone else on the planet). You are going to die, but you won't go down so easily! Choose a weapon, location to make the stand, and background music.
*Preferably in the front passenger seat of a red convertible driven by Zachary Quinto, who is magically not a zombie, with Chris Pine screaming (because I'm pretty sure he's actually a total wimp) in the backseat and ALSO magically not a zombie.
