My self-summary
Hello,

The first thing you should know about me is that I'm a total geek. Not a WOW, or War Hammer geek. Put your tongue back in your mouth and your 12 sided die away! I mean that I like real intellectual pursuits. I like understanding the cutting edge of topics and discussing philosophy at length, with people who have good vocabulary. I read New Scientist and am just shy of galf way through a PhD researching Amazonian Shamanism in Britain.

I like men in glasses, elbow patched and bow ties. I watch documentaries for breakfast.This is offset by having dyslexia that I have worked hard to overcome, severe blonde moments, and a taste for fail clips on Youtube.

I'm going to be honest and put my heart on my sleeve. I'm looking for a loving relationship, and someone who I can share the Sunday Papers with. OK I don't really read papers in print, but walk my none existent dog maybe. You get the picture. I want to chill out, and relax. Yet still I'm not going to jump into a relationship for the sake of having one. It takes me time to decide if I want to commit. I don't believe relationships should be hard work. If it's not fun why bother.

I like the occasional rave or gig but for the most part I have my head in books. It would be great if I could find someone who can tolerate my dedication to research (it's only going to be for the next few years) but is able to pull me out of it from time to time for a bit of romance and fun.

I'm not so much a going to the pub kinda gal, more the cinema, or a coffee, or an evening in with friends kind. Mainly because I don't drink.

It's fair to say I am pretty spiritual. I do believe in God but don't subscribe to any mainstream religions. My interpretation for what God is is transient. I'm more than happy to have a relationship with an atheist, and I won't try and change you if you don't try and change me. I do have a pretty critical mind but don't think that positivism is the be all and end all. It is important to let a bit of magic and wonder into life.
What I’m doing with my life
Studying a PhD, part time.
Blogging and writing about academia.
Working as an Admin assistant despite almost daily reminders that I should be doing much more with my time.
Some community work.
Playing my guitar for no good reason other than I want to.
Attempting to understand consciousness, spirit and the question to which 42 is the answer.
I’m really good at
Coming up with elaborate and ambitious projects, loosing hours, thinking of books I'll never write, embarrassing myself over the potential of love, agonising over work only to find a type-o too late, being self critical, talking about my passions to the point I realise I sound like a lecturer, keeping to agreements.
The first things people usually notice about me
If I knew I would probably change it. Just to mix it up.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
BOOKS: Art/design, psychology, biographies, Douglas Adams, contemporary fiction,Terry Pratchett, DBC Pierre, Carlos Castaneda. Since taking up research my reading time is spent primarily on related non-fiction (shamanism, DMT, methogologies, philosophy of religion etc).

MOVIES: Eternal sunshine for the spotless mind, Batman, marvel comic adaptations, psychological thrillers, art house, most action, horror, good stoner comedies, The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec (and a good few Luc Besson movies), definitely Christopher Nolan's work, Pi, Primer, Memento, The Prestige, anything with Christian Bale in (except Mary, Mother of Jesus), The Game, Donny Darko, Revolver, Spider, Inception, The imaginarium of Dr Parnassus, Mr Nobody, Cloud Atlas, Lynch, Gilliam, Cubrik, Cronenburg, Fincher.

MUSIC: Most tunes, infact anything goes if I am in a good mood: trip-hop, dub step, hip-hop, breaks, metal, jungle, acoustic, reggae, dance hall, soul, blues, rock, alt-rock, Psy-trance etc. Love Incubus, Deftones, Beth Orton, PJ Harvey, Nina Simone, Turin Breaks, Tribe Called Quest, Distillers, Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Gomez, UNKLE, Kate Bush, Dub FX, Muse, Zero 7, Surgeon and then some.

TV: Not much. Big Bang Theory, 2 Broke Girls, Joss Whedon stuff.

FOOD: Bring it on. Unless it's stuff wrapped in pasta. Things shouldn't be wrapped in pasta. Things with pasta is fine but no pasta parcels, or pasta prisons of any kind :S Also no dried fruit. Fruit is meant to be juicy.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I just got diagnosed with diabetes and am about to embark on a two month crash diet of 600-800 calories a day in an attempt to cure myself. I'm not sure what I am scared of most, not being ableto eat what I want, the monotony of the meals I can have or the weight loss I will experience (unfortunately a necessary part of keeping my sugar levels in check). I was thin before and didn't like how fragile I felt. I like my body as it is right now.
