Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
what with being married, i probably can't put off updating/turning
off this profile for any longer. i won't really attempt to justify
how i stayed "single" on this site through 4 years of on and off
dating the good mr. peter since, well, all i can say is I'm kinda
slutty and i don't check this frequently. A bunch of awesome people
have contacted me so i feel particularly bad about wasting their
time. all i can say is 1) I have a *lot* of single female friends
in the phil department 2) I would certainly like to have more
friends 3) Peter sometimes authorizes sexual depravity if it is
suitably hot and non-threatening. BUT NOTE for those purposes my
tastes are pretty specific, so unless you are a dreamy feminine
goth girl (see www.lizviscious.com
for one who is also a pornstar)
who is genuinely gay or bi, or a nerdy/academic english guy let's
not waste each others time.
Hm... i'm a philosophy grad student in cambridge (if you want to
hear about my enormous throbbing GRE score you can ask in
person).Academically I'm into analytic philosophy
and otherwise I
like 19th century novels of all sorts, nabokov, borges
and recently I've been
reading wittgenstein on philosophy of math and playing shamefully
much WoW. I'm a bit of a goth (if current 93
, Legendary Pink Dots
mean anything to you then cool, though I don't really
think that liking the same music is a good indication of whether or
nor two people will get along).
I am arrogant, curious, and hedonistic
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm in the third year of a PHD in philosophy
. I'm into metaphysics
, phil of mathematics
and phil of
and Adam Smith
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
enjoying food sleep and conversation
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
really I have no idea, maybe that my prose style is fucked up or
that genuinely want to hear about their thesis
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
books - i'll just list authors to make this shorter- nabokov
, oscar wilde
, jane austen
, douglas adams
movies - my favoite
movies are not movies but (mostly british comedy) tv series. either
my attention span is too short or I am hopelessly mundane and
soulless. go mundane and soulless! :) i claudius, red dwarf
, yes minister
, the office,
music - pulp
, legendary pink dots
. oh, and
I guess mozart and wagner, though being best friends with a music
major through highschool and the first part of college has convined
me that I'm just the sort of concert-goer adorno is always going on
about: I only understand .01% of what's going on that .01% is
likely to be the voluptous sound qualities of particular
instruments and the price of my ticket. foods - tomatoes, hummus,
warm pita bread, random berkely vegan food (e.g. pasta in
yeast-sause or the food-not-bombs stirfry), roasted bellpeppers,
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
beyond the obvious biological stuff, and some small amount of
controll over my own thoughts, nothing. I have a nice life now
doing philosophy (maybe the nicest I can imagine for someone born
before, say 2050) but many other worse lives seem like they could
be made livable (a soviet bureaucrat, a country doctor, a harem
eunich, a courtesan, a mideaval monk, an investment banker, a king
or queen, a greek slave in ancient rome). Things would be less
confortable, but I don't think there's any core of myself which
would be lost or betrayed by making the requisite adjustments in
tastes and habits. Isn't there something in nietzsche about how he
wouldn't put anything past a woman? ;)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how we can learn things like math and logic a priori, nabokov's
views on the relationship between art and morals and sadly that's
about all. #1 accounts for most of my wakeing hours. if only i had
some more friends who wanted to argue about what kind of copyright
laws we should have, or Tom Stoppard interpretation or what new
kinds of videogames there should be...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
going out to dinner with people from my department/studying in a
cafe if the weather is nice (you know those nice summer nights when
heat softly radiates up through the pavement)/playing world of
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
um... that I had a big crush on viconia in baldur's gate II
? that i've
had maybe five or six real realtionships (the phrase is vauge) but
am still a virgin? suffice it to say, i'm not very private
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- you live nearby and want to watch films/play games/argue - you
are from the uk and want to exploit your colonialist mystique - you
do analytic philosophy and want to talk about it
on the other hand you should not message me if you just want to
complement me on my looks. why would you do that? there are many
other things you could do: novel-reading and onanism suggest
themselves immediately, or you could go for a walk or make yourself
a nice cup of tea...
