My self-summary
So who am I?

In one of those newspaper ads from ye olde days, I'd be "27 swf, gsoh, caring, looking 4 same"

These days, I get paragraph after paragraph to describe myself (and even extra percentage points by our OkC masters - woot!) but, tbh, it probably won't tell you much more than the 7 word sentence above.

I've just turned 27 and beginning to reconcile myself to the fact that 30 will actually happen after all. Of course, 30s is the new 20s (dahhhhhling), so I'm looking forward to another quality decade with more travelling and shoe-buying to look forward to.

I enjoy being out, am never happier than when I'm in the thick of it all and have a very low tolerance for boredom. I like to have a plan and know where I'm going, which is a real pain because, right now, I don't have either.

I care deeply for my family and friends and worry a lot for them, which is probably entirely unnecessary but there you go. I spend a lot of time thinking. When I was younger, I could never see how that could be a bad thing. As I've become older, I've begun to see that the endless theorising hasn't led to all that much wisdom.

However, in the surprising event of the thinking producing a clear answer, I like to do something as soon as possible. I am a woman of action (said with a triumphant brass band flourish and a mental image of me in a superhero outfit). This has led to some pretty big changes in my life; moving overseas to the UK being one of them.

I am quirky, foolish, and a little bit hot
What I’m doing with my life
Update: So I found someone special. Someone amazing. And through this site, too!! So I'm off the market, gentlemen. Good luck and have fun in your search :)

Good question. Sometimes I worry I've done it all wrong and won't figure out in time how to be sustainably happy without having to adopt some quasi-monastic lifestyle, that involves shaving my head, ringing bells and adopting a tediously vegan diet. Most of the time, though, I'm pretty content and figure that, so long as I have a ready supply of dark chocolate, everything will be ok.
I’m really good at
public speaking, making a fool of myself, misinterpreting what you say, cooking a great meal, being enthusiastic, learning new things, trying again, dancing, making you laugh, having an opinion, being an absolute soft touch, looking forward to things and making mix cds
The first things people usually notice about me
To look into my eyes is to witness the birth of a billion tiny galaxies, each one more exquisite and entrancing than the next, a celestial bliss interlinked by nebulae of sparkling stardust, that no man can resist.

To look into my eyes is to feel a divine warmth and heaven all around, where time stands still and the moment becomes abound.

So I've been told, anyway. And as for my lips, well...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Sci-fi and fantasy are my enduring favourites (Ben Bova, David Eddings, Robert Heinlein, John Scalzi, JK Rowling, Katherine Kerr), although I do enjoy the escapist thriller novel of the Crichton variety and historical fiction. I read my fair share of non-fiction too, often about history, culture, science and politics (and if I can get it all in one treatise, even better).

Movies: Again, sci-fi and fantasy rate quite highly (Terminator, Predator, Aliens, Stardust, Princess Bride) but I enjoy almost all the genres (except horror). I have a soft spot for romcoms (Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Only You, Amelie, Wedding Singer) and enjoy historical dramas (Elizabeth, Master & Commander).

Music: I live for music (and dancing). Probably my most enduring love is old 50's and 60's music - classic, bluesy pop songs that I come back to again and again. Other than that, favourite bands include Wilco, White Stripes, Led Zep, Wu-Tang Clan, Kings of Leon, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Beck and Amy Winehouse.

Food: Everything, unless it has coriander leaves in it.
The six things I could never do without
Chocolate, dancing, books, music, friends and kisses
I spend a lot of time thinking about
everything. You'd be surprised by how often string theory pops up in my mind.
On a typical Friday night I am
What's typical these days? Maybe history can answer this question (it's usually the answer).


- Have a drink
- Eat food
- Smile
- Talk
- Go to the gym (to be fair, that was a fairly poor Friday night all round)
- Read a book
- Watch ancient re-runs of Friends, Scrubs and Pimp My Ride
- Go to a movie with mates
- See my cousin's band play
- Make out (I much prefer that type of Friday night)
- Go to a seminar at the Wellcome Trust
- Go to a house party in Chelsea and realise I'm completely surrounded by gay men, which resulted in very high quality chats about shoes and American southern accents but very poor quality chats about what a sexy babe I am and would I like to go on a date
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a Star Trek fan who often reads trashy romance novels, can be bribed with dark chocolate and knows all the verses to Good King Wenceslas (my favourite Christmas carol).
You should message me if
you want to, would be the simple answer. Do you want to?
