I like reading, writing, and drawing. Lately I'm also getting into sewing and crafts. I like to make robes. Robes are the ultimate garment. If I could, I'd wear nothing but robes. That's not true. I'd also wear visual kei. But I like how robes can be masculine, feminine, and pure fantasy at the same time. I am also in love with my long blonde hair. It's like a comfort blanket growing out of my brain.
I spend most of my time with friends just talking. I can literally talk all day and never run out of things to say. Me and my wife spend our holidays that way. We talk about social justice, community building, literature, cinema, science, political economy, art, stories we'd like to rewrite, hypothetical societies, and the things we wish for in life. We're also obsessed with fancy tea.
Me and my friends run the Ottawa surrealist group. It's a great place for unhinged intellectual and creative exploration. Most of our guests are afraid they're not surrealist enough because they're not Salvador Dali or Andre Breton. We like to reassure them that Surrealism is for everyone and that creativity is an emergent, collective property of a society where everyone participates, not the exclusive domain of talented geniuses. We aspire to be the kind of group Communists would call radical extremists.
I like walking, biking, swimming, and the gym. I'm also super into the martial arts. Apparently there might be a martial arts school for queer-folk starting up, which sounds like the best thing ever. My shoulder and knee are a bit busted up though so doing these things can be tricky.
Besides friends, I would also like an arch nemesis - someone just as good as me at writing and art who's name I could spit in disgust as I shake my first. We'd always be trying to one-up each other and boast of our accomplishments. Then we'd get a ton of work done in a jealous rage and argue about why ours is superior. I'd really like that. I could also use a kindly mentor to be platonically infatuated with as I absorb their sage wisdom, or a protegee I could pass my mystic arts down to. Maybe for me learning is like BDSM with knowledge instead of pain. I'm not really into that latter. I prefer kind and gentle encouragement to dominance, but please enjoy yourself whatever you're into.

On the other hand, if you happen to be a creepy pervert interested only in sex, I shall have to ask you not to message me. Otherwise I will be forced to hate you most exceedingly.
