1) This was recently called "The War and Peace of profiles." Much like that classical masterpiece, it might be worth your time to read it to the end. Pay special attention to the "you should contact me if" section.
2) If you've noticed me visiting your profile more than once I most likely find you interesting. However, I am terrible at making the first move. So, if you are at all interested, go ahead and shoot me a message and let's talk.
3) Just a quick promise/FYI: You will never be the most important thing in my life. That spot is taken by another woman (look at "My Details" and put two and two together).
***Now, down to business!***
When I am not working I am half Henry Rollins and half Eddie Izzard (sans drag). When I am working I am half Michael Clayton and half Angus MacGyver.
Both I and this profile are a constant work in progress.
This section should really be called "random facts about me." At least, that's how I'm going to treat it. Seriously, you need to know that combination of fairly ordinary things that make me me.
I have a big head. I don't mean that in the sense of having a big ego. I mean that I physically have a big head. If you look at my pictures, you will notice me wearing bucket hats in two of them. Those two hats were custom made for me by a local seamstress, because hats are not actually made in a size that fits me. One-size-fits-all baseball caps? Yeah, right...
I am an aural learner, which can be demanding of my surroundings. Often you just can't tell if I'm having a conversation/discussion with you or thinking out loud. The trick is to realize that I'm doing both.
A big pet peeve of mine is getting the answer "I don't know" to the question "what do you think?" I didn't ask what you know, I asked what you think. When I want to know what you know I will ask you about that.
I am native Swedish and constantly feel the need to apologize for things like Ingmar Bergman, Ace of Base, Roxette, RedNex, ABBA, Robyn, and, yes, IKEA. This hereditary condition of mine also means some special tastes when it comes food and candy. Here's a youtube video illustrating the point. Everything they eat is DELICIOUS. http://youtu.be/0bTIf6Zia5Y
You would think that I would have learned to go to bed at a reasonable hour by now, but no.
Some day, soon, I will learn to play the mandolin.
Blimps (airships) freak me out. They shouldn't be able to just sit there, but they are. Creepy, really creepy.
My favorite weather is rain.
I have a small obsession with prime numbers.
My screen name is the only thing I could think of when I signed up. I have since realized that my screen name should have involved the word "Grammar" somehow.
I always have to think about which is my left and which is my right. Every single time.
Every time I play a trivia game, I answer as if I was a contestant on Jeopardy! I can't help it, and I can't fix it.
At some point, I would love to get together with five other people to play clue. In costume. I've got dibs on Colonel Mustard.
