Why do you people get so offended by that?
Let's see, I believe everyone can be described as a series of eloquently phrased contradictions.
I'm the BIGGEST tomboy, but I know how to dress myself.
I'm a woman, but I know women are nuts.
I'm a cynical smart ass, but I care deeply.
I'm straight up and will tell you the blunt reality, but there is a time and a place for sweet words.
I have a passion for life that co-exists with a comfortable fear of it.
I can come off as both an insecure little beetch to a self-obsessed moron. I am neither! :)
My *middle* name is Laura.
I swear like a sailor, and I'm not afraid to burp like a lumberjack. Ha.
I have two tattoos, and I plan on many more.
I used to play soccer for many years until I severely injured my knees, grew a bone from a hairline fracture along the kneecap that leaked bone marrow and calcified, and had to get this solid chunk of bone surgically removed. And that's the short version. I cheer for the leafs, avidly watch soccer, but American football, baseball, and basketball bore me to tears. I may be convinced otherwise.
I write a lot, lots of poetry, a very long first half of a novel with no ending in sight, and lyrics to songs that I will never remember.
I have a very complicated family tree, and they are wonderful. My best friend and father once described me as a "Badass rocker vintage-ee hippie chick." He also used to call me Froggy.
I say rad. I don't say swag.
I listen to a lot of music, but older is better, in general. Led Zeppelin is first and foremost, Floyd close behind, but I could go on and on for hours about my favourite bands. Please, try convincing me that Pablo Honey was a bad album and you'll lose. Extra points if you didn't use google to look that up. I like metal, I like classic rock, I like grunge, and rockabilly, and punk, and hardcore, and new rock, indie, some interesting pop music, blues are flawless, country sucks, rap sucks more. I can appreciate dance music for dancing, nothing more :)
Here's the thing. I don't care if you're a "regular, easy-going, active, social butterfly". I could care less. I would rather hear that weird story that no ever wants to hear about, or that song that you just discovered, or... something.
