I suppose you could say I present myself better in writing than I do verbally; I wrote my first short story when I was four (ok, ok, you caught me, I dictated it to Mom, but then, James Joyce dictated his works). I never really stopped. I have had numerous online journals of the sort that you forward to your friends, if I do say so myself, and I did briefly attend Columbia College for fiction writing before I ran screaming in terror toward an institution that was actually capable of finding my student files rather than using them to roll joints, or whatever it was they were doing. I have tried on various majors and professions and am currently searching for the one I like best before going back to college to finish my degree in something that I hope is a bit more marketable. I love college and always wanted to finish; yes I know I'm a nerd. Medicine is another one of my passions, and at the moment, nursing is looking like a viable option, though I might be a bit more like House.
I am sarcastic with a dry sense of humor and a joke about everything, but it's all meant in good fun, and I poke fun at myself as often as I do anything or anyone else. I have been known to burst into song in the shower, create bizarre art projects, and debate history with people in book shops. I enjoy the arts, and history, and the occult, and am a sucker for a good bottle of chartreuse and a conversation that makes me think. I am a self-admitted bibliophile to the point of addiction and my books are a dominating presence in any dwelling I inhabit. As is my Pekingnese, Zen, who loves everyone, especially if they have socks she can eat.
I am sort of a pagan leaning toward athiest, but don't care what you are as long as you don't inform me I'm going to hell or inquire if I intend to dance about naked in the forest. I might, but it would have more to do with alcohol than my religion. ^^
What else can I really say for the moment? I love movies and music, my tastes are all over. I enjoy getting to know people, and once I consider you a friend, I am fiercely loyal. I am more than willing to get out of bed at three in the morning and come be your shoulder to cry on or a ride home because you were in a car accident. I've had a confusing, complicated life, but I'd like some new people to participate in this odd dance.
I am poly-amorous, and while I live with my long-term boyfriend, he will allow me to play and even to date outside the relationship. This applies mostly to females, but the right man will be considered as well; and no, he won't be included in it unless you want it that way. I am a member in good standing of the fetish community, but it isn't essential to a relationship. Please consider a friendship if this is uncomfortable for you, I prefer to be up-front and don't wish to make anyone unhappy in any way.
That depends more on the other person than me. I could say my hair or something and have someone sitting there going "Well, no, I'm looking at the DD cups, der her her". Actually, they probably notice my eclectic wardrobe (I've been known to wear dusters, period fashions, gothy stuffs, and jewelry I make myself) or the fact that I always have a book.
