My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Right, so I'm single these days. That means it would probably be a good time for me to meet new people and try to socialize more.

Recently ( in the last two years) relocated to Perth, which is my home town, but not where I was living for 6-9 years (the first 3 years involved many visits home).

I'm trying to make an effort to see friends rather than end up in the rut of wake up, eat, work, home, eat, watch dvds, read the whole internet, read, sleep, rinse, and repeat. But that is usually what I end up doing on the days when I have to work the next morning.

Occasionally, I manage to go out and dance to loud music, that's always fun.

I've recently (in the last couple of years) discovered that poetry slams are fun, so I try to go to those when I can, and have performed a couple of times.

More often, I manage to catch up with friends in a pub or cafe, and can even stay for over an hour before falling asleep.

While bisexual is the available option that is closest to my preference, I identify as queer because I acknowledge that not everyone fits neatly within two genders, and my attraction to people is not dependent on what's in their pants. This is probably the place to say that while I have no ethical preference about monogamy vs. non-monogamy, I am not poly, and not likely to be romantically suitable for anyone who is.

I know this is probably a weird thing to put on a dating site, but I am really happy being single. Basically my life goal is to grow old with my cats and be that crazy cat lady down the street. I guess while I'm happy with things as they are, I'm also open to the idea of meeting people for whatever reason and getting to know them better.

There used to be a thing on the profile where you listed 3 things about yourself. Mine are: I am myopic, verbose, and easily amused.

If you have questions, go ahead and ask
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working for an NFP
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Stating the obvious.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I smile a lot and talk even more.

Lately it's my bright orange hair. (Currently reduced to a single stripe)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Authors I like include:
A S Byatt, Terry Prachett, Angela Carter, Diana Wynne Jones, Immanuel Kant, Russell Hoban, Bertold Brecht, Catherynne M. Valente, Frank Moorhouse, Greg Egan, Hannah Arendt, James Ellroy, Iris Murdoch, N. K. Jemisin, Michael Moorcock, Michel Foucault, Oscar Wilde, Georges Perec, Kelly Link, Philip K. Dick, Nick Mamatas, Thomas Pynchon, Seanan McGuire, Raymond Chandler, Dorothy L Sayers, Samuel R. Delany, Ursula Le Guin, Lois McMaster Bujold, Walter Moers, Iain M. Banks, and Patrick O'Brian

I watch a bunch of tv shows, some current, some older. Mostly I wait for dvds to come out and watch a whole season in a couple of weeks. I don't like watching commercial channels, so I don't. Lately I'm watching Doctor Who, The Borgias, Orphan Black, and Treme. I love everything David Simon has done, and want to have his celluloid babies.

I don't listen to music quite as much as I used to. I actually prefer the quiet when reading or writing, so tend not to have much music on at home, but at work I listen to lots of world music. That said, the CDs I have on (relatively) high rotation at present are:
A Badly Broken Code, Dessa
La Folia - Gregorio Paniagua
Overgrown Tales- The Crooked Fiddle Band
Dead Men Tell a Thousand Tales - Mikelangelo and the Black Sea Gentlemen
Electric Lady - Janelle Monae
The Rough Guide to the music of South Africa (so many classic tracks)

Some other bands/artists I like are: The Pixies, Scissor Sisters, Poe, David Bowie, Massive Attack, Talking Heads, PJ Harvey, Nick Cave, Blondie, Machine Gun Fellatio, Medeski, Martin, & Wood, The Dandy Warhols, The Triffids, Vienna T'eng, Nils Landgren Funk Unit, Pendulum, Julie Driscoll with Brian Auger and the Trinity, Underworld... you know, pretentious alternative stuff (that occasionally has a hit) ;-)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My medications, my cats, things to keep me warm, glasses or contact lenses, sleep, a spellchecker
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whether it's possible to get enough sleep.

How even though I'm an atheist, I think Richard Dawkins needs to STFU occasionally.

Whether the men who are mostly searching for women a lot younger than them have issues, or have simply been on the site a long time and never bother to reset their parameters. (OK, I don't think about that a lot, but I do think about it whenever I notice a guy has an upper age limit for women which is his own age or younger.)

Paragraph breaks, and how they make things easier to read.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Maybe collapsing after working late. Maybe watching a dvd . Maybe having dinner with friends. Maybe out dancing. Maybe planning world domination.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
1. That while I can lol-and-1337-speak with the best of them, I will be judging your grammar and spelling.

2. I have a philosophy degree.

3. That unless I find your message and profile interesting, I won't reply. That would be a waste of both our times. That said, email notifications sometimes go missing. [And if I see your profile first and like it, there's a good chance I will send you a message.]
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are a completely healthy and well adjusted person who hasn't any neuroses nor any other emotional problems.

Or if you really like to sleep.
