Eating things is one of my favourite things to do. This doesn't mean I won't eat shitty bar food -- I understand why it tastes good even if it isn't good for you -- but I'd rather have a bison burger at a better restaurant. It turns out I'm good at making up lazy versions of recipes so I can spend more time eating and less time cooking.
I'm polyamorous, which is important to note off the start. I'm in a relationship, but that doesn't mean I can't be in another, and be committed and honest with everyone. And I'd never restrict the relationships of my partners.
I used to try and tell myself that I'm not shallow, but I think I am. Looks aren't everything, but they're still SOMETHING. Athletic girls turn my crank. Petite girls do it for me, too. There's nothing wrong with a size 12 or 14 that's proportioned nicely. Fair's fair, though: if you don't like the way I look, that's a perfectly good reason to blow me off.
I'm living in Montreal, and I've kicked free of Alberta. I already cheer for the Habs first and the Oilers second. If I bother to watch hockey at all, which I rarely do.
I'm half Chinese, but nobody can tell at first glance. I can tell that people sometimes want to ask, "What the hell are you, anyway?" but can't because they think it's rude. Frankly, I'd prefer that question to the weird and incorrect assumptions.
I have four tattoos -- the Chinese words for 'Fire', 'Water' and 'Snake' as well as the logo for the bike team that took care of me so long, and two piercings, though you're not likely to notice those unless we're somewhere with my shirt off.
My favourite movies are The Incredibles and A Scanner Darkly. I'm also going to put Battlestar Galactica and Firefly (Serenity), though those aren't really movies. The Royal Tennenbaums and The Life Aquatic are amazing, too. This list is highly mutable.
The Princess Bride holds a special place in my heart. If you don't get it, you haven't seen it.
I listen to a lot of Metric, The Bird and the Bee, Inara George, Fiona Apple and Pomplamoose these days. I'm also a fan of The Pixies, The Breeders, Nirvana and remixes of video game music. Oh, and Weird Al. I apparently also listen to an awful lot of Nine Inch Nails. Check my last.fm profile.
I love pasta, pizza, (authentic) Chinese food, berries of all kinds, many kinds of fruit, and steak. And waffles.
My eyes. I like lookin' at stuff.
I just removed the bit where I said 'out with friends for a drink'. It turns out I don't do that much. These days, I go to the gym and then head home to relax.
If you like coffee, we have something in common. If you think good coffee comes from Starbucks, I have something to teach you.
