My self-summary
First and foremost, I have to mention that I'm polyamorous. I'm married and I have a girlfriend, automkf. Still here? Ok, cool. Next up, my orientation. OKC still has a little ways to go here, but they are much better than any other site out there. So my identity is asexual panromantic. Asexual means I don't experience sexual attraction. It has nothing to do with desire or arousal, but just that I never see a hottie on the street and think "I'd do them." Panromantic means I'm gender-blind in my romantic attractions.

I'm pretty easy going, except when things happen that really bother me. That happens infrequently, though my husband may disagree. He says I complain a lot. I don't think so, but then my opinion is subjective.

I've been polyamorous my whole life, before I realized there was a word for it or even other people who felt that way. I never understood the attraction of marriage, since that meant being with one person for the rest of your life. Or so I thought.

I can be shy around strangers but once I open up to people, I'm quite the chatterbox. I'm usually more open in "professional" type situations where I can talk about my research or science in general, rather than myself. In groups, I tend to be more of a listener and watcher. I'm also not very auditory, so I tend to space out when I'm on the phone. If you have something important to tell me, it's better to do it face-to-face or by email.

I have a really twisted sense of humour. I frequently laugh at things that are completely inappropriate. I have been known to go "too far" on more than one occasion, which sometimes disturbs people. I am great at detaching my visual imagination from the words coming out of my mouth or going into my ears, so it's pretty hard to phase me.

I get bored easily so I like anything that is constantly changing. Stagnation reminds me of rotten puddles, and those just smell bad.

I'm a card-carrying member of the Socialist Party of Canada, but I don't often to go to rallies or take big stands against things. I'd like to get involved with that stuff again. I could use the excuse of school taking so much of my time, but it's just that: an excuse.

My passions are learning and science. I used to think I didn't have any passion, because I'd always get bored with topics that I'd previously been fascinated with. Then I realized I was bored because I'd learned all I wanted to about them and was ready to move on to the next fascinating thing.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm working towards a PhD. It sounded like more fun than getting one of those "job" things. Yech. What am I going to do with it? Anything I want!
I’m really good at
Making up sciency explanations for things and being right about it.
The first things people usually notice about me
A lot of people notice when I wear FiveFingers (toe shoes). They're super awesome, and people are always curious about them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favourite author, hands-down: Robert A. Heinlein. I've never read a Heinlein book I didn't like. His take on marriage and relationships, to government and military service... it all just makes so much sense. Plus he's immensely entertaining, hilarious, and just plain a good storyteller. And when you consider the period he was writing in, it's even more incredible.

Books: Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy; Song of Ice and Fire; Princess Bride: S. Morgenstern's Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure (book is soooo much better than the movie... the author pretended that he was abridging Morgenstern's book, and inserts all these random comments about why he cut out this part or that part, like when S.M. purportedly went on for 6 pages about Buttercup's mom's hats... but it's not actually abridged, he just made all that up for comic relief); Boss for a Week (childhood favourite); Science Is...

Movies: Princes Bride (favourite movie of all time); LOTR; The Usual Suspects; Pulp Fiction; Schindler's List; Fight Club; The Silence of the Lambs; American History X; American Beauty; WALL·E; Requiem for a Dream; Braveheart; Fargo; Donnie Darko; An American Tail; The Truman Show.

Shows: Doctor Who; Breaking Bad; Firefly; Nurse Jackie; Six Feet Under; Llamas with Hats; Big Bang Theory; Bones; The Mentalist; The Office; Mythbusters; Hoarders; Criminal Minds; NCIS; House of Cards.

Music: Edvard Grieg (In the Hall of the Mountain King, especially the bassoon part); Graham March; Poe; Paramore; anything with a good dance beat; Nathan; Nathan Rogers (son of Stan Rogers and no relation to previously mentioned band); Richard Wagner (The Ride of the Valkyries, it always makes me want to put on a cape and prance around pretending to be a super hero...).

Hobbies: Reading, Sewing, Photography, Horticulture, Interwebbing, Fixing stuff MacGyver style, Baking and Cooking, Shopping for outfits (yeah, I can be girly sometimes... Shoes!), and the occasional addiction to some stupid video game that I get completely wrapped up in for a month and then never touch again.
The six things I could never do without
1. Cats
2. Sonic Screwdrivers
3. Plants
4. Fresh Air
5. CBC Radio One
6. Science & Learning
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Common Ownership aka socialism aka communism. Taking the means of production out of the hands of the bourgeois, and putting them into the hands of the billions of workers.

This whole "We are the 99%" thing was a good start, but it was misguided. They're just talking about a redistribution of wealth. I'm talking about abolishment of the concept of money.

I'll admit, capitalism may have been a useful and even necessary stepping stone for human civilization, but we're beyond that now. There are simply too few people making decisions for the masses. The planet and the people are all suffering as a result of these profit-driven decisions.

It's time that workers and soldiers take back the factories, the fields, and the railroads. There is more than enough food on this planet to feed everyone comfortably. The amount of improvements that can be made to lifestyles around the world are virtually unimaginable, and the only thing standing in the way of this progression is the profit-driven motivation of capitalism.

The idea that people are "losing" jobs to technology is ass-backwards because we've setup a wealth system that requires people to earn money for the production of profit, rather than production for real consumption. As a result, we resist labor-savings machines because they replace workers, rather than rejoice in the fact that there's less human-required work that needs to be done, hence more free time for friends, family, and the pursuit of happiness.

Enough is enough!
On a typical Friday night I am
Either at the lab doing my research or at home recovering from school. I like home. I like going out, too, but I usually have to psych myself up. Introvert. I love dancing. I enjoy playing pool.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a mild obsession with writing instruments. I'm especially fond of fountain pens and quality mechanical pencils. Japan produces some of the best, and I've never visited without buying a stylus or two.
You should message me if
You have your life together, but you still giggle when someone farts.
