My self-summary
On 6th August 1945 the first atomic bomb was dropped by a United States aircraft on the Japanese city of Hiroshima. On the same day in 1961 Russian cosmonaut Major Gherman Titov astonished the world by becoming the first person to spend the whole day in orbit over the earth. And on 6th August 1981 in the city of Liverpool, Heather Paterson emerged kicking and screaming into the world.

Heather dislikes bigotry, war, worrying about money, sewing machines and the sound of ice being cut / crushed / scraped.

She likes summer rain, bar room philosophy, people watching, women and faeries.

She doesn't see the world the same way as other people, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

"Heather was never one of the cool kids, because she never wanted to be"

A commited activist, Heather thinks almost as much as she smokes. At the age of 12 when she became vegetarian, her mother thought it was a phase; That was a long time ago.

Heather is a proud lefty with sympathies with the anarchist / socialist / marxist / libertarian schools of thought. Spiritually she has leanings towards buddhist / pagan / humanist philosophies. However she does not pay her subscriptions or allow herself to be confined by defining to any of the above groups.

She also likes the pretentiousness of writing in the third person.

What I’m doing with my life
I spend more time than is probably healthy pratting about on the internet. I enjoy lazy afternoons sat in a bar with my friends talking rubbish for hours. I enjoy going to gigs but don't do that often enough.

I hold strong opinions and am prepared to stand up for what I believe in, I am crazy enough to believe that I can to some extent change the world.

I live in Rotherham, but spend most of my time in Sheffield.
I’m really good at
Putting off housework


The first things people usually notice about me
No idea - probably that my hair has changed since they last saw me which it almost always has.

And the tattoos.

On a typical Friday night I am
Doing something with my friends, either nights out or in front of a dvd with a takeaway and bottle of wine or wasting my time playing on the internet cos I am too skint to do the above.
You should message me if
You have something interesting to say.

I shouldn't have to say this but if you are racist / transphobic / ableist / otherwise discriminatory then jog on.

Tories and / or daily mail readers should probably also be added to that list.
