Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm half japanese, hoppy-jump-kicky, and carbon based.
I am blithe, flippant, irreverent—and these three tag-words still
apply, seven years later. Though, if I had my druthers, I would add
three more to balance them. I am also chronically disorganised,
self-punishing, and melodramatic. There. Druthers! I has
OH HEY ALSO: I discovered at the doctor's office I'm 1.68m! I
thought my whole adult life that I was 1.64!
I should mention here that I'm not looking for anything but
friendship. Please do write me if you're awesome. Especially if you
like fibre and yarn! Or printmaking!
I met (and married!) this guy ----> Dazibao
!!! And it is pretty great.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Rubbing it gently between thumb and index, testing its thread count
and quality of weave. Sometimes I find it locked outside, cheeks
pinked from the cold, looking kind of hungry and accusatory. I'm
full of WTF and I knit an awful lot. I used to look forward to
functioning well on a daily basis but then I actually started to do
so and let me tell you, it is so much better than I ever
Also, honestly? Thinking about jams and nut butters all the time. I
am really, really, boring. I probably should consider moonlighting
as a squirrel.
Around about five years ago I figured out how to start using my
middle gears, and that was sort of magical. Maybe when I'm in my
fifties I'll discover I'm rubbish at driving stick and I dropped my
transmission back somewhere in my thirties and never realised it,
but at the moment I'm surprisingly balanced.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
, prose writing, the
future conditional (both real and unreal) and the pluperfect,
hopping, and knitting
. I am exceptional at snacks,
and flopping. Oh, and plathin' it up. I can also cook, so that's
all right then.
I make a lot of stupid faces. I don't mean to, but I do it when I'm
talking. I make them, my face is exaggeratedly animated, and so I
guess that is also something else I am good at.
I used to be pretty great at naps but I lost that talent, I think
when I started exercising more. I am super great at mashing
together all the languages I know and sort-of know. I really love
the dutch diminutives -tje and -ke. I blame living in Belgium for
years and years.
ARE YOU LISTENING, BELGIUM?! I BLAME YOU!

Help your potential matches find common interests.
I rarely discuss books or music with people, I don't know why. It
is strangely personal. Not first date discussion material! So now
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Never? Never is a pretty big abstract. I could do without it.
I suppose julipitydoodah
would be a good start.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Robots. Books. Cookies. Robot cookie books. Cookie book robots.
Magic and Science. Concatenation
I wrote the above seven years ago and it still applies. As time has
progressed however, I've added a few things to the list. I would
really like, honestly, to spend less time thinking. But that will
I spend a lot of time talking to other people in my head. Mostly,
we quote passages from books at each other. It makes me very tired.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hopping. Possibly reading with a high chance of goofing off.
Knitting. A colourful range of precision crafted actions? Running
thin sheets of metal through presses applying thousands of pounds
of pressure? I don't know- penguins
. (Certainly, I'm haunted by
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am emetophobic. I go catatonic at the sight and/or sound of
someone else vomiting. This is what kept me from going to
I'm crooked-faced, heavy-hipped, prone to melancholy and full of
dark humour. What else?
I'm bewilderingly boring!
I am an ompy stompy tiny grammar-nazi robot, and you can find me on
And I just realised a whole bunch of my friends that I met through
OKc have me in their profile photos with them, which is delightful
and also slightly appalling.

ce que tu as apprivoisé.)
