I am also spending too much time on the internet looking up nice things to buy that I can't afford. I was once addicted to internet games but am proud to say I quit (it was getting really awful, I would be sitting at the computer for hours bleary eyed and hungry and feeling like crap and I had pain in my wrist a few times from playing for so long without breaks.) I do occasionally game these days, but never arcade style things as that's basically what I was addicted to. Solitaire cards are the devil.
When I'm not online chatting to friends and adding to my anime wishlist or writing I mostly watch and read stuff, I also like to cook, I can't cook a wide variety of things but my favourite thing is frying some onions and cut up sausages and having them with instant noodles - it's much nicer than the seasoning packets they include (which I now have a steadily building collection of in my cupboard as I never use them anymore). I made a beautiful spanish omelet recently. I try and keep on top of the general business of ablutions and not letting the flat become a tip (the latter with the help of my P.A.). I'm hoping to start volunteering at Amnesty Bookshop again when I have the time/shit-togetheredness to do so.
My hair (either that it's long, that it's pretty or that it sometimes hasn't been washed in over a week).
That I have nice legs (ok, that was one guy, but I do seem to get a lot of positive attention when I wear short skirts).
That I talk fast
That my bras don't fit (I do wear one at a time, I just have more than one that doesn't fit... I don't have anything against people who wear more than one bra at a time).
That I seem intelligent
That my T-shirts are cool (and usually have at least one small food stain on them, this also applies to my clothes more generally).
That I'm fat (nice when someone's cool with it, not nice when they start telling me I should be losing weight even though dieting causes me to develop eating disordered/body dysmorphic thought patterns that are very distressing for me).
That I have lots of DVDs and comics (in the form of collected book editions, I don't want to deal with the flimsiness of trades, also this is generally something people notice when they see my room, I don't usually walk around with a sizable library on my person).
Movies: Loads, but all time favourites (I've tried to limit this to films that I've seen a few times, there are a fair few obscure animated films that I've seen that I really enjoyed but have only watched once so far so I didn't include them) include 10 Things I Hate About You, Aladdin (Disney), Angel's Egg, The Boy Who Wanted to Do the Impossible (also known as The Boy Who Wanted to Be a Bear), Chico & Rita, The Dark Crystal, The Emperor's New Groove, Evangelion 1.11 & 2.22 (can't wait for movies 3 and 4!), Fantastic Mr. Fox (to all the people whinging about how american it was? Let's see the u.k's pathetic animation industry do better then), Feherlofia (Son of the White Mare/The White Mare's Son), The Girl Who Leaped Through Time, The Hunchback of Notre Dame (yes, the Disney version), In & Out, The Iron Giant, Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade, Josie and the Pussycats, The Jungle Book (Disney animated), Kiki's Delivery Service, Kirikou and the Sorceress, Lilo and Stitch, The Naked Gun, Orphee, Princess Arete, Pump Up the Volume, The Secret of Kells, Tokyo Godfathers, Up (Pixar), The Wedding Singer... there's lots more. I also still own the 2005 Radio Times Film Guide which I hope to one day finish reading and watch all the films that sounded interesting (and yes, I do also use the IMDb) :D I recently saw The Double and thought that was fantastic, I wish more films were that original (OK, I know it's based on Dostoyevsky, but it's still pretty original as films go). I love Goldie Hawn, Jamie Lee Curtis and Melissa McCarthy. Alan Cumming is awesome.
TV/OVAs (In addition to the stuff I've already mentioned): Azumanga Daioh, Batman: The Animated Series, Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad, A Bit of Fry and Laurie, Cowboy Bebop, Buffy/Angel, Carnivale, Chuck, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Dad's Army, Father Ted, Fawlty Towers, Firefly, FLCL, Flight of the Conchords, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Full Metal Panic!, Futurama, Gargoyles, Ghost in the Shell: Standalone Complex, Golden Time, The Good Life, Heroman, Katanagatari, Kino's Journey, Last Exile, The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, Monty Python's Flying Circus, Noein: To Your Other Self, Paranoia Agent, Please Save My Earth, The Powerpuff Girls, Princess Tutu, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Pushing Daisies, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Samurai Champloo, Samurai Jack, Samurai X/Rurouni Kenshin: Trust and Betrayal, Serial Experiments Lain, Smack the Pony, Spaced, The Tatami Galaxy, Teen Titans, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, The Twelve Kingdoms, The Venture Bros./Brothers, Wolf's Rain and many more.
Music: Two of my favourite songs are The Village People's version of Macho Man and Love Shack by The B-52s (I would love to meet someone who makes me feel like that song!) I love Electric Six (I see them play in Brighton every year, about the only time I can be bothered to go to a gig because it's fun rather than just beautiful, I have met Dick Valentine at his solo shows twice and he kissed my forehead! I didn't wash it for a while afterwards :P) and a few bands that I've revisited many a time are The Beatles (cliche but they are a damn good band), The Cure (though I'm no expert), Depeche Mode (Black Celebration and Violator are heavenly), Flight of the Conchords, Hot Chip, Interpol, Queens of the Stone Age, Radiohead. A few recent favourites include Soulsavers (I love Mark Lanegan's voice, Broken is a beautiful album), Mama's Broken Heart by Miranda Lambert, Girl in a Country Song by Maddie and Tae, Bit by Bit from Fletch (what glorious 80s cheese), Black Element (they aren't very well known, I think Runn'n Young'n expresses how much pressure there is to get ahead with life in a really poignant way), Royal Blood, Devendra Banhart, Beirut, The Pretty Reckless, The Dollyrots, Catallena by Orange Caramel and Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars (also Daffodils, love those spacy Kevin Parker vocals). I have a great fondness for Mika (I like the generally positive messages of his songs, his body positive attitude and the lack of oversexualisation in his videos). Really want to listen to Janelle Monae and Bat for Lashes' albums again, can't wait to pick up Savages' (the four piece all female post punk quartet) album.
Food: Bacon, Cheese, Chocolate (and chocolate brownies, cheesecake, mousse, trifle), Croissants, Cucumbers, Donuts, Ice cream, Kiwi Fruit, Lychees, Mangoes, Milk and Milkshakes (I know it's debatable whether this counts as food or drink, I say both), Mushroom Risotto, Fried Onions, Paella, Pasta, Pizza, Raspberries, Sandwiches, Vegetable Samosas, Smoked Salmon, Spanish Omelettes, Sushi, Tomatoes, Dessert Waffles... and so on, food is good. Not a big fan of spicy foods and will never try snails, the thought makes me gag (I have nothing against French people or French cuisine as a whole, I just don't want to eat snails).
My Rights (and everyone else's)
Wanking (and I really don't want to go without partnered sex either, but I could deal with that, never masturbating again however would wreck my mental health) and hugs. Therefore covering my most essential kinds of touch.
Friends/Family - and more generally, love.
Computer and internet
There, that's more than 6 things. I don't follow your rules, man!
Silly band names
People I love
How to make the world a better place
Can I afford to buy this awesome extremely nerdy thing?
Will I ever manage to work through my DVD/book backlog?
If Jerry's so smart, why on earth does he hide the can opener so Tom has no other sources of food than him?
Was Barney the Purple Dinosaur a missed opportunity to create a mascot for queer scientists? Could he have, potentially, been awesome rather than annoying?
That AMV I keep meaning to make
I spend a lot of time composing songs in my head as well :)
More "seriously" I have ADHD and I'm on the autistic spectrum, these things don't define who I am but if you want to associate with me you have to accept them.
You agree with me about politics, which among other things means supporting abortion rights for all women, not just women who you don't consider to be sluts because they didn't make the supposedly terrible, evil decision to have sex *rolls eyes*. I mean, seriously, why on earth would I fuck you knowing that you think I should have to run the risk of 9 months of health problems and potentially injuries such as a torn clitoris or vaginal prolapse, permanent disability or death plus pain that lasts for hours or even days if I fuck you? Especially when you don't have to run any of those risks yourself? You don't have to specifically consider yourself liberal or feminist, but if you're anti-feminist/anti-womanist or conservative/republican, we aren't going to get along. We also aren't going to get along if you're opposed to welfare and/or public education and/or laws meant to prevent discrimation in employment, housing, etc. And furthermore we are not going to get along if you are pro-censorship even if your reasons are supposedly feminist.
Optional but preferred:
You like anime and/or manga.
Would be cool:
You believe in unicorns and fairies/nature spirits a teeny little bit (not a lot, just a bit). Or appreciate them as metaphors for the natural world and it's rebirth.
In the unlikely but awesome eventuality that:
You are not human but can still type - I'll be well impressed and promise not to reveal your secret to the media.
And furthermore don't message me if:
You're expecting kinky sex, I'm not completely closed off to kinky stuff but I've been fairly vanilla up to this point and if you aren't capable of enjoying vanilla sex I don't think we're compatible. I mean, sure we can make friends, but don't message me thinking I will be the woman who fulfills all your BDSM fantasies because I'm really not sure I'm up for that.
You are going to send me pictures of yourself naked or ask to have webcam sex when I haven't asked for them/that and we've only just met.
You hate children (I don't want to be a parent, but hating children is really wrong)
You're anti-abortion (which includes if you think they should lower the time limit)
You're prejudiced against any group of people, including but not limited to ones to which I belong, such as queer, disabled, female assigned at birth, fat, etc. A few more examples of people I won't talk to are those who believe that race or gender determine intelligence, people who blame rape-victims for their rapes, people who think it's impossible for a man to be raped by a woman, and people who think that disabled people are/should be asexual. And though it should be FUCKING CLEAR FROM EVERYTHING ELSE IN MY PROFILE, I do not want to talk to you if you think that being LGBTQUIA is wrong, I've been messaged by a couple of straight guys who thought female homo/bisexuality was acceptable but male homo/bisexuality wasn't... A) You're fucking bigots B) You think with your dicks instead of your hearts and heads C) I'm insulted that you'd think, based on my profile, that I'd be such a hypocrite as to be ok with you being prejudiced against gay/bi men (or for that matter, trans women, I wouldn't be surprised if you were prejudiced against them too), especially since some of them are among my dearest friends (if you guys are reading this, I love you, you're fucking awesome!)... oh yeah, this shit is personal. And it IS acceptable for men to wear makeup/earrings/whatever clothes they want, no matter how "girly/feminine", if you think it isn't fuck off. Oh, and furthermore, and what is more, and Thomas Moore, lesbianism does not exist to get men off.
You answered yes to that question about whether the world would be a better place if people with low IQs weren't allowed to reproduce... eugenics is WRONG.
You are pro-death penalty.
