Birthdate:Jul 17
Location:New York, United States of America
I don't like having my birthday displayed but I don't mind giving my birth year, which is 1986. (This is random but it's mostly for communities that want to know how old the members are before they join.)

I'm not a secretive person, and I'm practically compulsively honest. . . I want to write a bio that will actually help people decide whether or not they want to LJ friend me. But whenever I try to write something detailed, it seems to change really quickly. Still, I'll see what I can do.

I'm a semi-recent college grad and now have a BA in Religion. But I'm not religious at all, or not part of any organized religion - although part of the reason I studied religion is to be more tolerant of it, and I think it worked? Definitely not comfortable with proselytizing, though, and I tend towards irreverence about the Bible. Paul in particular.

With my religion degree, I currently work for the city of New York in an unspecified capacity. :D OK I said I wouldn't be cryptic but whatevs. Tis a goodly job, and I love being a public servant.

What else? I really love comic books. But as you can see from my interests list, I'm generally into a lot of different things. My icons are sometimes the best way to tell what I'm in to lately? As of writing this it's been political figures, tv pundits, and the daily show, but my basic trend is to get really, really intensely into something and then eventually move on and find something else to fixate on. So if you wait long enough I'll probably have the same interests as you at some point, maybe? XD Before it was politics it was Japanese boy bands and Doctor Who and the Monkees and Narnia movies and I don't even know.

Let me think what potential frienders might want to know. . . My journal entries are occasionally long introspective babblings (I'm quite long-winded) but mostly they're retellings of nice or funny or interesting things that have happened to me. Sometimes complaining, but hopefully not often cos later I want to reread my journal and just think about good things, or something. I don't know. Anyway, it's usually about my life. Occasionally gets political. Or is about fannish stuff.

So, uh, I'll go with that as a bio for now.

Also, here is my TOKIO Pimp Post!! Check it out! It is awesome!

and now, for some nerd humor. Feel free to contribute some nerd jokes to the cause via PM or a comment!
Joke number one: "Quark! Quark!""Look out for the quantum ducks!" [quite possibly the world's worst nerd joke]
2 (follow-up provided by terrible_tues): A neutron walks into a bar. He asks the bartender for a beer, and asks how much it costs. The bartender says, "For you, no charge."
Later, a proton walks into the bar and says, "I'd like a beer." The bartender says, "Are you sure?" The proton says, "I'm positive."
3: Seen in the personals section, "Acute angle looking for compliment. Together, we can be right!"
4: Don't take it for granite, it's not gneiss! [joke created by marishi several years ago when we were in earth science together.]
5: Why wasn't Virginia Woolfe a twin?
She wanted to have a womb of her own. [joke generously donated to the cause by renniekins]
6: This is a political science type nerd joke, which ambushbug saw on a dorm room door at Clark University.
Dean pulled out!
But did America get pregnant?
Campaignus Interruptus!
7: Q: What did the Chorus say to Creon after Oedipus poked out his eyes?
A: Now that's a face only a mother could love."
[Classics-type nerd joke, seen in Princeton Review's book of 345 Top Colleges, provided by April W., a St. John's College student.]
8: Math pick-up line: If you be my derivative, I'll be the area under your curve.
9: not a nerd joke, an elephant joke. But there's no difference, really.
Q: What do you get when you cross an elephant with a jar of peanut butter?
A: An elephant that sticks to the roof of your mouth!
[heard on Arthur--you know, the cartoon based on the books of Marc Brown?]
10: Maybe you'll like my math joke! Because you know, nothing is greater than--or equal to--a math joke! [provided by roommate!Corey, as heard from comedy Ren Faire juggling troupe London Broil]
11: When chemists fall in love: "Babe, you fill up my valence shell. When you're around, I feel like a noble gas." [taken from away message of Brandeis!David, friend of Katie.]
12: As easy as 3.1415926535897932384626433832795028841.
13: “A mathematician is a device for turning coffee into theorems.” P. Erdos [P. Erdos is apparently a mathematician. What do I know? I got this from a list of quotes somewhere.]
14: a chemistry couplet:
Charlie was a Chemist, but Charlie is no more.
What Charlie thought was H20 was H2SO4.
15: All that glitters has a high refractive index.
16: 2,000 mockingbirds=2 kilomockingbirds [literature-style nerd joke! yay! from the "quote of the day" board in my dining hall]
17: Rene Descartes is in a bar at closing time. The bartender announces last call and asks Rene if he'd like one more drink. Rene says "I think not" and disappears. [joke stolen from toomuchtime]
18: Plato and a platypus walked into a bar. The bartender looked at the platypus, looked at Plato, and raised an eyebrow. Plato shrugged. "She looked better in the cave!"
19: At a communist nudist colony, two men were sitting on a porch. One turned to the other and asked, "Have you read Marx?" His friend replied, "Why yes, old fellow. I believe it's these wicker chairs."
20: Another communism joke, because. . . they're hilarious. Q: How many communists does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
A: None. The lightbulb contains the seeds of its own revolution.

"In the depths of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer." - Albert Camus
[This is the quote that k.d. lang found the title of the CD "Invincible Summer" from. I love k.d. lang. :D But I also think that the quote is fantastic! Even though I don't like existentialism.]
