My self-summary
Wearer of silly hats, misser of buses, climber of playground equipment, teller of bad jokes and narrator of pointless anecdotes. I am the most cynical optimist you'll ever meet. I'm quite all right when I'm not being a nuisance.
What I’m doing with my life
At the moment, it’s basically just the haze of sleep deprivation (and naps that are sometimes voluntary) that comes with frantically trying to fit my million-and-one interests around working.

I very much enjoy making things, though I am irrationally annoyed by the use of craft as a verb. Most often I make things using either words or long pieces of string, but sometimes I use paper, clay and other sundry things. I often blog about it afterwards. I love music, but hate talking about it (go figure). I'm a bit obsessed with eating and drinking, and on good days I will also make merry.

I enjoy computer games, whenever the above pursuits leave me with time left over. I always mean to play widely, but often have trouble resisting the pull of Starcraft. I love to travel. I make sad attempts to grow unusual plants (venus fly traps and woad, anyone?).

I do a lot of other things too. Things are great. I enjoy things.
I’m really good at
Making mundane things fun, or so I'm told. And why not? You have to go grocery shopping at some point, so why not have a supermarket adventure?

I have an odd tendency to make up mini-games to make life more interesting. Can I put all my groceries in my bag before I get a second ‘Please collect your items’ from the self check out machine? CHALLENGE! Can I swipe my work security ID without using my hands? LET’S FIND OUT! It’s probably rather annoying.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height. Or my tendency to crack jokes when people are scrutinising me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: I like a lot of things, but the moment I am listening to lots of: the Mountain Goats, Leonard Cohen, the Doors, Stars, Moving Mountains, Feeder, the Antlers, Subaudition, the National, Florence + the Machine, Hellsongs, Arcade Fire, Sigur Ros. That's just a snapshot though.

Books: I have a definite penchant for the fantasy genre, but my tastes are much broader than that. My favourite writers are Margaret Atwood, Robin Hobb, Kurt Vonnegut, Michael Chabon, China Mieville, A.S. Byatt, George R.R. Martin, Oscar Wilde, Haruki Murakami, Sonya Hartnett, J.K. Huysman, Milton Hatoum, Yann Martell, Henry Miller. And a bucket more. Non-fiction too, from time to time.

Movies: Oh, I don't know: I'm not really that much of a movie watching person. Off the top of my head, Secretary, Kill Bill, The Princess Bride, Starship Troopers, 28 Days Later, Super, The Dark Crystal, the original Star Wars films, lots of others that conveniently escape me right now. Most Studio Ghibli films (but I am NEVER watching ‘Grave of the Fireflies’ again. You can’t make me do it). I accidentally typed “Krill Bill” – now THAT would be a good film.

TV: I don't actually own a television. But when that doesn't stop me, I like Game of Thrones, Boston Legal, Archer, Breaking Bad, Skins, Rome, Dexter, The X-Files, Blake’s 7, Peep Show. Anything with Nigella Lawson or David Attenborough (triple mega bonus points if it stars both of them, but sadly I don't think such a show exists). I have Seachange on DVD and I'm not embarrassed about it (much). Sometimes I dabble in anime. And watching Robot Wars clips on YouTube is never a bad idea.

Food: I had to fight back the urge to write 'EVERYTHING' for this. "Everything" would actually be a blatant lie, given the whole vegetarianism thing and all. But perhaps the initial impulse to opt for that response gives a good indication of my enthusiasm towards food. I'm slightly obsessed with it. I see cooking and eating awesome food as one of the absolute easiest ways to improve my quality of life; you have to eat anyway, so why not do it magnificently? I have recently moved into a flat with an oven that is not so much an oven as it is a kiln, and have subsequently levelled up my bread-making skills. So excited!!
The six things I could never do without
Books, tea, solitary walks (usually with headphones), notepad (plotting), intelligent conversation (sobriety not mandatory), dessert.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Arranging words in pleasing ways. Cenotes. Arranging coloured string in pleasing ways. Food. Symbiosis. How to convince myself to sleep for longer. Feminism. Identity. Subcultures and their trappings. Build orders. Anagrams. Fish. Yeah, I’m pretty keen on fish.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with excellent friends, eating/drinking and solving the world's problems. I nearly wrote "solving the worlds' problems" and in some ways I like that better.

When social diversions are not to be found, I'll probably be sitting cross-legged on my balcony, atop my completely bombastic foundling couch, eating a mango and trying to get the tomato plants to grow faster through sheer force of will.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really love the Safety Dance. Not in an ironic way. I love it for realsies.

Though to be honest, that's not really much of a secret...
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 21–38
  • Near me
  • For new friends, short-term dating
You should message me if
You think we can have either a halfway decent rapport or a bit of a laugh, or you can tell me all about Interesting Things. As the status implies, I'm currently exploring the whole non-monogamous relationship thing (my partner in crime and non-stop cake-ingestion is the rather marvellous Saktoth). So if you're navigating the murky, shark-infested waters of this site with monogamy as a non-negotiable point, I am not your girl. But if not, I'm easy going, am always looking for people willing to accompany me in my attempts to eat my bodyweight in dumplings, and... I like the Oxford comma?
