Shoot me a message! Fear not, I want to make friends too you know!
I'm from the NWT originally and lived there most of my life. I really enjoy cooking & I love and miss nature and the northern lights and my dogs, but seeing many of my friends in the city, not to mention all the things I can do here helps compensate. Plus I go home at Christmas & for the summer.
I drink a metric shit-tonne of tea.
I can often be found complaining about the weather (probably not in the way you think), and my friends are constantly joking about how everything I make turns into stew (it doesn't... Often... I swear!). I also have a tendency to tell people to get the fuck out of my kitchen while I'm preparing for a party or something.
I invite all my professors to my parties and ONE OF THEM FINALLY CAME (to one of my Robbie Burns suppers, and he brought his wife and beer; can you say 'awesome'?!).
I feel any form of communication on a dating site is going to be tainted by lack of inflection and assumed creepiness, so if I message you, please understand I probably just want to talk.
Movies: (British) humour, satire, dark humour, adventure, sci-fi, historical/documentary, anything with a good storyline/compelling characters/anything by Joss Whedon/with Simon Pegg or Nick Frost. I also have a soft spot for movies other people might consider the height of cheese, such as Tremors.
Shows: Spaced, Castle, Fringe, Primeval, Tremors, Terra Nova, Supernatural, Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones, Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Farscape, X Files, Monarch of the Glen, Monk, Murdoch Mysteries, Dark Matter, Shetland, Trapped, Stranger Things, Occupied (there are a lot of good netflix shows these days!).
Music: I listen to a little of everything. metal, folk, country, hip-hop, rap, pop, rock, electronic, classical, pretty much everything besides dubstep; but even then, there are some pretty cool dubstep artists out there.
Food: Oh man, I love pineapple, green pepper, and cheese pizza; cabbage, nachos & salsa, perogies, sauerkraut, stew, veggie korma, stir-fry, bannock, potatoes, Fresca (it should be it's own food-group lol), and ginger ale every colour of the rainbow. I will try basically anything I just don't eat pork, and prefer vegetarian dishes (however I do still eat other meats on occasion).
I often get consumed by an area of research for a paper.
You should contact me if:
You need a date to a fancy get together; or if you want to come to my Robbie Burns supper on the 25th of Jan; or if you're a Link, Ganondorf, & Ike type of smash bros player; or you'd like to come enjoy some tea with me; or if you'd like to talk about my crush on Hegel or Bourdieu.
Please note: that because of a) who I am, and b) currently being a grad student, I often am very busy. As long as you don't take us not being able to hang out all the time personally, I'm sure we'll get along swimmingly :)
