I'm pretty easy going, except when things happen that really bother me. That happens infrequently, though my husband may disagree. He says I complain a lot. I don't think so, but then my opinion is subjective.
I've been polyamorous my whole life, before I realized there was a word for it or even other people who felt that way. I never understood the attraction of marriage, since that meant being with one person for the rest of your life. Or so I thought. Also, although it says "bisexual" up there on my sexual orientation, that's not entirely accurate. I'm pansexual, which means I don't give a crap what's between your legs as long as we are emotionally compatible.
I'm shy around strangers but once I open up to people, I'm quite the chatterbox. I'm usually more open in "professional" type situations where I can talk about my research or science in general, rather than myself. In groups, I tend to be more of a listener and watcher. I'm also not very auditory, so I tend to space out when I'm on the phone. If you have something important to tell me, it's better to do it face-to-face or by email.
I have a really twisted sense of humour. I frequently laugh at things that are completely inappropriate. I have been known to go "too far" on more than one occasion, which sometimes disturbs people. I am great at detaching my visual imagination from the words coming out of my mouth or going into my ears, so it's pretty hard to phase me.
I get bored easily so I like anything that is constantly changing. Stagnation reminds me of rotten puddles, and those just smell bad.
I'm a card-carrying member of the Socialist Party of Canada, but I don't often to go to rallies or take big stands against things. I'd like to get involved with that stuff again. I could use the excuse of school taking so much of my time, but it's just that: an excuse.
