Im a Danish metropolitan lady, so I write this text in English as to not exclude anyone not privy to our tongue-twisting, throat-tearing language. Im also a quirky and sharp lady, with many odd adventures in the past, and I fully expect, many more to come.
This self-portraying writing is so very hard. So where to start and end this explanation of what kind of person one is...
Ok, facts about me:
Im sensitive and passionate about everything that matters to me in life. These include Food, literature, music, art in general really, Beer, oddity and people. And a whole bunch of other things.
Im tough and a bit on the cynical side sometimes, I have a wry and dark sense of humor with a hearty splash of irony and Im greatly thrilled and amused by the absurde. I can always find odd little things to appreciate and Im quite comfortable with silence and solitude. In the right company I am very easily amused. Life and the world is inherently enthralling, bemusing and quite worth a chuckle. Even when it sucks.
Im compassionate, friendly and as a principle, nice and polite to strangers, although I have come to realize that when I dont like people or just dont care, Im terribly bad at hiding it. On the other hand, the people I love, and there are quite a few as I easily come to care a great deal for people, are never in any doubt of my affection and dedication either.
preferred sparetime activities:
I love hanging out in bars, drinking beer. I prefer dimly lit places where people are thouroughly themselves in a relaxed sort of way. I have a few favorit spots.
Im currently writing and illustrating a childrens book for my own amusement. This takes up a good chunk of time. Oh and I've started writing poetry, which I find oddly embarrassing.
I like to play really old strategy computer games and listen to audiobooks when Im really tired. Lately I've been knitting socks a lot. Because I need more socks. Or I watch series. Like currently the IT Crowd, Game of Thrones and Deadwood. I never watch tv. Because most of it is completely idiotic.
I read a good deal and I love fantasy and sci fi (mainly cyberpunk). I read history books for the fun of it. I often dive into A History of Western Society before bedtime. When it comes to film and series I fall into these genres a lot as well, battlestar galactica, star wars, firefly... love the stuff to bits. Yes, Im geeky.
I absolutely love to travel and Ive done it quite a lot.
I played in a baroque ensemble for 10 years
Some of my greatest heroes are Oscar Wilde, Frank Zappa, Laurie Anderson, Stephen Fry and William Gibson
My middle name is Irina, because my mother was a passionate young communist waiting for the revolution to come.
Im an atheist and this is important to me.
I find my family history so interesting that I might distress all my relatives by writing a book about them at some point.
