I was diagnosed with synovial sarcoma a couple of years ago. So far I'm winning but you never know how long for, so I'm trying to make the most of every moment just in case they find something nasty on the next scan.
Most of the time I tend to be fairly easy going and optimistic, but now and then the black dog gets his teeth in for a while, thankfully the up side is very much winning these days. I bore easily so I try to keep myself busy and distracted as much as possible. That does tend to mean I'm pretty busy and don't have a lot of spare time but that's just the way I am. I'm doing an OU degree at the moment so prone to disappearing into my books depending on how soon the next assignment is due.
I'm kinky, polyamorous and pagan - so don't bother contacting me if you're narrow minded. I'm not evangelical about any of them, but I also don't hide what I am and that does have a tendancy to break brains. Please note that this does not mean that I am desperate for a shag and will automatically say yes to whatever lewd suggestions you want to make - I have several rather fabulous partners already so can get all the shagging I want without resorting to random strangers from okcupid. That's not saying I'm not open to offers, just that I'm only likely to accept really good ones! I'm definitely not looking for or interested in casual sex - friendship is far more important, so please don't bother messaging just to hit on me.
If that hasn't put you off completely you can also find me under the same username on Livejournal and facebook.

Other than that - try me :o)
Movies - the Princess Bride and Rocky Horror are all time favourites, but I also love musicals.
Music - I like all sorts of music, but live is best.
Food - I like most food, especially anything spicy or tangy.
Fridays are kinda fluid really - they depend on what else is planned that weekend.
I used to work as a human lie detector so I'll know if you're being honest with me!
