My self-summary
I'm a highly sociable hermit who loves getting out and having fun, but who also craves time at home on the couch. I keep fit and active and both my dog and I enjoy long bushwalks. I've discovered the joys of the gym over the last few years & may yet take up a career in arm wrestling...

I respond particularly well to witty banter. I like to see that you have an imagination. Blank or unimaginative profiles, or those from people on the other side of the world, are highly unlikely to elicit a response, but make me laugh and you win bonus points :-)

Like many women, I have more clothes & shoes than I really need, and enjoy dressing up to go out, but am not averse to donning the tracky dacks and slippers either.

I'm shocked at having reached the big five oh when I don't feel anywhere near that old. I try not to act my age unless I have to. But I also don't lie about my age and respond poorly to finding out that other people have. Tell me up front if you've knocked a few years off your age or risk me backing right off when I find out you've been fibbing.

I have wonderful friends and believe that a good relationship is like a good friendship: we stimulate each other, care for each other, bring out the best in each other. But then there's also got to be that 'chemistry'. The spark that ignites the fire. I enjoy my independence and my life is pretty damned good. So, if you're an open minded optimist who thinks life is too short to sit around wishing things were different and makes things happen instead, I'd love to hear from you. Who knows, that all important chemistry might even be there.
What I’m doing with my life
Squeezing in as much as possible.
I’m really good at
Art-making (well, I try to be good at it)
Cooking - always on the search for great vegan nosh
Writing, although I'd rather be making art than writing about it.
Procrastination - especially when it comes to writing...
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmmm... to be honest I have no idea. My hair? (Blonder than intended thanks to a home-dye accident a while back now - no turning back from that). My shoes? I do like shoes...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Lately I've been reading more non fiction than novels, though I do like a good novel too. Just read The Emotional Life of Your Brain (Really interesting stuff). Sex and Punishment: Four Thousand Years of Judging Desire (also fascinating!). Partial to a Haruki Murakami novel (though the movie version of Norwegian Wood was very disappointing) and am now wracking my brains as to what other novels I've read lately...

I have little time to waste and a low tolerance for TV (Still watch ABC from time to time) so tend to go for series such as Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, True Detective. I can't say I have favourite movie though I'm more an independent/arthouse goer rather than commercial chains. I don't get to the cinema anywhere near as often as I'd like.

My taste is pretty eclectic. Jazz, pop, indie stuff, gothic country... For example recently played on my ipod: PJ Harvey, Air, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Dandy Warhols, Gillian Welch, Franz Ferdinand, Florence and the Machine, Francioz Breut, Emiliana Torrini, Jolie Holland, Lucinda Williams, Leonard Cohen, Martha Wainwright, Massive Attack, Nick Cave, Goldfrapp, Triffids, Tom Waits.

Food wise I love spicy food and have a ridiculously high chilli tolerance. Oh and I love very dark chocolate.
Six things I could never do without
My friends
Animal companions
Walks in the bush (preferably with uphill bits)
My computer (sadly)
Really hot chilli
Alone time (that's seven but it's important)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Art I might make and how to get more time to do that.
How much I wish people who are serious about social justice would see animal rights as a social justice issue.
What I might cook for dinner.
Sex - although given some of the responses I am getting on here I'm having second thoughts about my honesty on this one...
On a typical Friday night I am
At exhibition openings.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't fall in love easily and tend to keep a bit of an emotional distance - I like to take things slowly and get to know someone. But I don't fall out of love easily either which can be painful at times.
You should message me if
You are someone smart, silly, creative, active, motivated, optimistic, kind, open minded and a bit kinky. You are independent and generous of spirit. Ideally you'd be a veg-head like me, but at the very least you would be sympathetic to my views and wouldn't mind having vegan culinary experiments tested out on you.
The two of us
