My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I promise to try not to talk your ear off about mediaeval manuscripts.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
PhD in mediaeval studies (well, technically English, but once you get that far back you have to do the cultural and linguistic and manuscript and archival work yourself before you can even have your text in hand), after which I intend to hang around universities for the rest of my life. Someone might even, eventually, pay me to do it!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Deciphering early 14C Latin abbreviations? Not really a vital life skill, but it's rather fun. Also dog-wrangling, sniffing out good coffee places, making good food from scratch (just learned a new technique for kneading pasta dough the other day!), getting obsessively analytical about (some) TV shows, persuading my macbook to have interesting icons rather than those ugly grey things they put in for Lion, and writing fanfic for Supernatural.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
... I honestly have no idea. Possibly that I come across as a bit stand-offish, as there are many social situations that I still find awkward? Most first impressions tend to be visual-based, I think, and I'm not exactly qualified to comment on my own appearance.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Oh goodness. This one could get excessive. This is definitely a fill-in-later one.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- I would say 'books', but a more accurate way to put it (given how much of what I read is digitised) would be some form of literature - anything from 18C early novels to a decent TV show to that ridiculous 15C poem called "The Grene Knyght" which is basically really bad fanfic for "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight", though I'd prefer not to be stuck with that one for all eternity if I had to choose.
- The ability to cook for myself at least every so often. Also, decent fresh (vegetarian!) food when I can't.
- On which note, cheese. Cheese is seriously amazing. Would prefer to keep my cheesemaking apparatus too.
- I can live without my dogs - I am having to at the moment - but I'd really rather not. As soon as I have my own place again, they'll be back in with me.
- I think this question is hyperbolic. There are very few things that I really couldn't live without. Work, I suppose - I go crazy very quickly if I don't have something that I HAVE to do, rather than just projects that I'm choosing to work on.
- I'd rather have my crocheting too, and my music library (whether on ipod or computer) and my movie/tv show collection, but I'm hardly going to expire tomorrow without them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whatever I'm writing most obsessively at any given time - either character development in a story, or how to best summarise this 35-page chapter into a 10-page conference presentation.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Not very wild. Really, I can't handle too many conversations going on around me or too much background noise - I'd much rather curl up with a book or with my computer or a movie and do quiet winding-down things. Or write some interesting tension-filled dialogue, of course.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
... definitely varies depending on whom I'm addressing.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... you think we could have interesting conversations, and are happy with just having interesting conversations.
Really. That's it. I'm usually fairly wary about progressing past that - if it happens, it happens, and that'd be great, but if I get the sense that you're pushing too hard in that direction I'll be likely to close down. And if you actively try to persuade me into something I don't want to do, I'm afraid you're a dick and that's that (but I sincerely hope you already knew that!).
So, basically, I'd rather approach it as looking for a friend, in the first instance. Anything else is a bonus.
