For fun, I dance (bellydancing, contra dance, English country dance, Scandinavian folk dance, and a bit of swing dance), sing and play many instruments (including hurdy gurdy, piano, flute, bowed psaltery, bodhran, and pennywhistle), attend and perform at Renaissance faires, read, and do a bit of modeling. I'm also knit and have recently learned inkle and card weaving.
I am vegan for a number of reasons, but the foremost is that I don't believe that any animal should be harmed just to provide me with sustenance I could get from non-animal sources. I follow an eclectic pagan spiritual path, and take the Wiccan rede (If it harms none, do as you will) very seriously. It's almost like the Hippocratic Oath of "cause no harm", I think. The health and environmental benefits are a lovely addition to this. Finally, I find that I've had a much more varied diet as a vegan than I ever did as an omni, and have become quite the culinary artiste!
I am looking for people who share some of my interests.
If I had to list all of my favorite movies, I'd run out of room. I suppose my top picks for movies would be Serenity, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, The Wizard of Speed and Time, Amelie, Real Genius, Oscar, Noises Off, Monty Python & The Quest For The Holy Grail, Star Wars (eps IV-VI), Clerks, Love Actually, Eat Pray Love, and Still Breathing. My favorite TV shows are Firefly, The Guild (webisodes count, right?), Castle, Sherlock, Grimm, House, M.D., Doctor Who, Red Dwarf, Star Trek, Dharma & Greg, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
I like a very wide variety of music - Irish and Scottish (The Corrs, Beth Patterson, Capercaillie, The Chieftains, Silly Wizard), Scandinavian (Värttinä, Garmarna, Kraja, Susanne Rosenberg), Indian and Bollywood music (I'm a big fan of A. R. Rahman and I adore the entire soundtrack to Main Hoon Na), Tuvan throat singing, Indigo Girls, world fusion (like Delhi 2 Dublin, which combines Indian music with Celtic music), Brian Setzer, Shakira, The Beatles, "Weird" Al Yankovic, The Lost Fingers, Peter Gabriel & Phil Collins, Zap Mama, Azam Ali, Billy Joel, Elton John, Joanna Newsom, Marian Call, Michelle Dockrey, Queen, Herb Alpert, Simon & Garfunkel, The Smothers Brothers, Pentaphobe, Beats Antique, Gypsy Caravan, and Björk. My iTunes main music playlist (all songs) is 8.2 days long, and it's woefully incomplete.
As far as food goes, if it's vegan, I'll eat it. However, I'm particularly fond of veggie sushi, Indian, Thai, Ethiopian, and vegan baked goods and chocolate.
You must have a working brain, be able to converse intelligently without using profanity, and should be able to construct a complete sentence with correct grammar and punctuation. Please don't send me a message that says "U hav nice hair." or "Yur butiful!" (No, I'm not making these things up, unfortunately.)
One last thing - I am polyamorous. Poly people have open and *honest* relationships. I am *not* going to help you cheat on your wife, so don't bother asking.
