My self-summary
I'm a quite well-to-do old lady, blonde, marvellous cook. Have raised four grandchildren, and every one of them adores me. I love to crochet, paint pictures of my lovely Southampton village, and reminisce in front of the fireplace with one of the classics. Looking for a good time, call me if you're feeling horny and want to play checkers out in the woods.
What I’m doing with my life
I am mainly watching it go by.

While watching, I try to dabble in everything, which makes me good at nothing. True story.

One of the things I do, is debate. And I mean British Parliamentary, not just sitting around debating with friends.

Lately, I've begun being concerned. This is not a matter of WHAT I've been concerned about, there's so much to be concerned about that it's disconcerting. Let's just say I'm putting my money in an ethical bank, and buying fair trade clothes (the couch potato path to a better world).

I feel I'm too much of a fussy, grumpy ol' purist/loner to easily drop into a movement of people to actively pursue social goals. I also know that's a cheap excuse. Don't take me wrong, though, I'm a feminist, a sort-of-uneducated socialist, I care and debate about these things a lot.

I also geek around. Quite a bit.
I’m really good at
Unnerving people with how far I can take a conversation. And I'm not saying this in a self-glorifying manner, either.

Avoiding finishing things.

Snarky comments? Meh, I'll let others be the judge of that.
The first things people usually notice about me
Is my boobs.

I mean, my hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Having nothing else to do with my time, I spend it watching movies and TV series.

To name some that stand out: The Wire, Monty Python's Flying Circus, The Sopranos, Gilmore Girls, Community, The Sound of Noise, Game of Thrones, Stranger than Fiction, The Cell, Before Sunrise/Before Sunset, Office Space, Rosenkrantz & Guildenstern are dead, American beauty.

I mostly listen to music that sports the following feelings: depression, grief, sweetness/quirkiness and cleverness. Not all at once, but combinations are good. Just to throw some names around, I'd say the musicians that have captured my heart the most are Sun of Nothing, Regina Spektor, Tom Lehrer, Skyclad, My Dying Bride, Garmarna, Blackbird Raum, and recently lots of folk music, lots of medieval music and traditional percussion. I also seem to have a thing for screaming girls, for example Miss Violetta Beauregarde.

Current obsession: mathcore, noisecore (Rolo Tomassi, Daughters, Gaza, Knut)

Even though I never read books, there are some that I liked (I am as puzzled as you are on the matter): anything by Patrick Süskind (especially The Dove and his Reflection), Moby Dick (double-entendre and all), The Silmarillion, Blindness and others by José Saramago, some Lenos Hristides, The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy (I've read 4.7 of the books in the trilogy), Emmanouil Rhoides' Pope Joan (also: everything else he's written), Umberto Eco, Elric of Melniboné and other works by Michael Moorcock, and lately Gödel, Escher, Bach, even though I haven't finished it yet. Also, this is the point where I allude to all the other things I've read, whereby I imply they are numerous and deep.

WHY ARE GAMES MISSING from the title of this section. I will defiantly list games as well: I am a gamer, not by profession, but rather in a somewhat more pervasive, deep manner. I like to talk about games, and it's important to me.

In boardgames, I like long strategy games with a diplomatic element, like Warrior Knights, Game of Thrones, and of course, Diplomacy, but I also enjoy clever, innovative games of many sorts, with a soft spot for tight deck-building games, like Nightfall, Coreworlds and Eminent domain. Finally, I've taken the plunge into the world of Android: Netrunner.

In videogames, I like... well, this is harder to define. I'd like to say _different_, but that sounds disgusting. Sample of my top list: Planescape: Torment, Starcraft (1 and 2), Crusader Kings II, Portal, BioShock, Port Royale 2, Braid, The Witness and so on.

If you've never heard of any of the abovementioned, fear not, I can exist without flooding you with gaming stuff. There are other sides to life. I simply particularly like this one and would like to have an outlet for it.
The six things I could never do without
1) Interesting people. Unfortunately, weather I have any on me at any given time is determined only by luck of the draw, so I have to do without this sometimes.
2) THE INTERNET. *gasp* Yes, people, I am an internet freak. I can't go a single day without my cat videos and a billion images on imgur.
3) Debating and over-analyzing. Ideal world: one without any silences. Well, okay, some. Only good ones.
4) Witticisms and puns. Martin Walkyier got me into this, and I can't get out of it.
5) Interacting with music. Weather by playing, shaking uncontrollably or simply listening while doing work, I live and breathe sound.
6) Fuck you, there's no 6. (I could never do without swearing and expressing myself freely, even when I feel I need to be vulgar)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Time wasted, time going by, all the things I will never be able to experience, why I can't avoid looking down and stepping onto as many flagstone lines as I can when I walk, how I could use language more correctly and effectively, programming problems and practices, how I will instill in myself some self-control, age, how funny do I sound when I try to speak Swedish, rhythm and percussion, how I can stop contributing to inequality and third-world misery, how to pronounce that in Swedish.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Polyamory is wrong! It's either polygamy or multiamory, but mixing greek with latin roots, that's just wrong!

Also, I like muscular women.
You should message me if
you ran into an old friend with a limp today, and you talked about how the rain where he currently lives is destroying the crops, and later you saw a pink elephant on the street, in front of a café serving mainly beer soup and mushroom smoothies, which unavoidably led you to some place where you could go online and create a profile on okcupid just to meet me.

How should I know, just read the answers, dummy.
