My self-summary
I love pretty things and am easily distracted by the glam. That said, I'm kind of a cheapskate; I love fancy clothes and good wine, but I almost never shop and I will cheerfully drink turpentine at $7 a bottle. I'm like a cat - I'm likely to come off a bit aloof at first but I have sudden bursts of cuddly affection, and I like to knead furniture with my claws.

NB: I'm happily partnered with squarepeg85 so I'm not in for anything too serious.
What I’m doing with my life
I just wrapped up an obscure little Masters in the UK (as well as my first album!) and am now turning my attention to sweet, delicious financial solvency. In my spare time I'm playing a lot of Binding of Isaac and Risk of Rain, enjoying being able to say Canadian slang again, and spending too much time on Twitter.
I’m really good at
Writing music is one of my favourite things in the world and maybe the only thing I believe I'm good at almost 100% of the time. I'm also a fair writer and copy-editor, if you're into that sort of thing. I make pretty good dad jokes.
The first things people usually notice about me
Blue eyes and dark brown hair (when I bother/remember to dye it). I'm told it's a pretty striking combination.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favourite book is usually whatever I'm enjoying at the moment. The mainstays are Les Misérables, Pride & Prejudice, Midnight's Children, the comic series Saga and The Thing Around Your Neck. Right now I'm going through an OMG OCTAVIA BUTLER phase. A short list of movies that have made me ugly-cry: Lars and the Real Girl, Sixth Sense, Pokémon: The First Movie. I'd be sublimely happy if I could eat Morrocan, Ethiopian, Thai or Italian food every single day.

I listen to a lot of folk, R&B/soul and pop, but I get frequent hip hop, country, old-skool rock-n-roll and opera cravings. If I could have three musicians on a desert island, they would probably be Janelle Monae, Elliott Smith and Otis Redding. I will never get tired of the REM song "Shiny Happy People."
The six things I could never do without
My family, my pals, a way of making music, trees and mountains, an elastic for my hair, good conversation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend my days thinking about songwriting methodology and practice, or possibly fretting about money. I spend my nights thinking about intersectional feminism and afrofuturism. Oh, and bees.

My interests are varied and I can get excited about almost anything that doesn't require doing math in my head.
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking tea, getting my dance on, playing games (board, card, video), or hitting the gym.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I misspelled a word on a Grade 2 spelling test, but the teacher misread my messy handwriting and gave me a point for the word. She even held up my test as an example for the rest of the class. To this day I haven't corrected her.
You should message me if
If you are more concerned with being kind than with being smart or cool. (It's ok if you're all three through)
