My self-summary
My name is Victoria. If you take any of this at face value you have only yourself to blame. I apologize for nothing.

My Myers-Briggs personality type is Myers-Briggs is a bunch of bullshit.

I'm an enigma wrapped in a mystery wrapped in some ikea instructions. Put down the Allen wrench and pick up a power drill.

FEMINISM. Okay, that should take care of most of the haters.b
What I’m doing with my life
Have a film degree from Seattle that won't program transfer so I'm sort of back at square one. Getting credits at Langara this year, applying for my major next year at UBC's Creative Writing program. Going to be focusing on screenplays, fiction and nonfiction. Ideally I'd like to write television. In my fantasy world, for HBO or other high production value networks. I'm particularly interested in the mini-series format, as well as radio magazine and radio play format, which is making a sneaky comeback via the internet. I love Welcome to Night Vale, and This American Life. I love that scene in the Wire where Bodie drives to Philadelphia while listening to the Prairie Home Companion. If you laughed at that scene, you share my genetic mutation.

I support my bad habits by working as a cook at a west end restaurant. Those habits are multifarious and include but are not limited to Parallel 49 brews, Black Tusk Ale and Manny's. I'm also more than passing fond of foodstuffs, and am availing myself of the many delights of the Vancouver food scene- and working as a cook helps immensely on that front. I only just moved back to Vancouver from Vancouver Island at the beginning of May, and I'm enjoying a thorough reintroduction.

I also fence with foil, and less adeptly, with epee.
I’m really good at
tapping out dating site copy.
winning this game over and over again
spinning pizza

The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not actually a person, but a series of well executed amateur photographs.

That I look different in each of those photographs.

I am a shapeshifter.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This isn't even an exhaustive list, and you can skip it, but I think it demonstrates some insight into the enigma that is not me.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm trying to quit. Filthy habit.

Everything. I prefer the term "wonk" over "massively opinionated" but I do try to make it my business to have a standard of evidence about information that is socially proliferated- which is, of course, all of it. I'm not as up on my Canadian politics as my American, but that is something I pretty routinely follow. I can also hold a pretty good conversation on the merits of screen adaptation, canonical Sherlock Holmes, or the fall of the Roman Republic. I probably live in my head more than I should.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday is a hoax. I'm usually chopping something into pieces, removing bones from bird parts or burning myself on a 700 degree oven and frightening the waiters with my screaming.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm terrible at playing hard to get, so I don't play at all. You'll know if I'm into you and you'll know if I'm not. I'm not really that good at waiting games, and I'm also not a mind reader, so if bluntness freaks you out, don't let the door hit your ass on the way out.

If you don't list your name on your profile or include it in your introductory message, I will assign you a name. It is surprising how many dudes out there introduce themselves as Laid Back and Easy Going.

I'm also a dual citizen of Canada and the US and therefore a little culturally neurotic. I got mocked for being a Canadian kid when I was growing up in Seattle, and now Canadians like to point out America's flaws to me, which is of course an immensely helpful social rehabilitation method and has done much to improve the American nation.

Sometimes I think getting along with me is a tall order, but what I'm actually looking for is someone who is ideologically similar, but calmer than I am, and who in turn will make me feel calm. My head is a noisy place sometimes, and it can be hard to turn down the volume. But the right person can set me at ease.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 23–30
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating, casual sex

Instead of holding up a fish in your profile picture, you're holding up an oyster. More oysters = more better. And lemon and tobasco.

NCITW? Savage Love? Yes. Common language. And yes, all of these things still apply regardless of casual or serious interaction. I like to enjoy the company of the person I'm with, casual or otherwise. Casual does not have to equal boring.
