Living on the island after being gone for a few years, and I'm excited to meet some fun and sexy New Yorkers.
I like to think of myself as a dreamer with a doctorate in mad science. I am a writer, poet, actor, singer, sports enthusiast, and geek. I love the English language, linguistics, semantics, and analysis. I have an affinity and admiration for all things British.
I tend to think of myself as enthusiastic, dynamic, and deep. I have a great sense of humour (yay British spelling) and love interesting conversation and stimulating debate. I love to travel and hope to one day see the world.
I am a cartoon connoisseur who collects quotations and phrases, and plays video games. I love Science Fiction (all things Doctor Who!), History (especially German history circa per-unification through 1945), and Neil Gaiman (the man is sickeningly brilliant!).
Lastly, I love to learn, believe that knowledge is power, and that "knowing is half the battle." As a person and English major, I try to never judge a book by its cover.
Je parle en francais, unpeut. J'adore le lang de francais, Je pense que ce lang est tres beuax. Je suis tres interessant, unique, et drole. J'adore le chant de "La Mer."
I am intelligent, witty, and creative.
Also, reading and writing, singing, telling humorous anecdotes, photography, literary theory, debating semantics of the English language (especially when it comes to the ambiguous demonstrative pronoun "that" in THE DARK KNIGHT and what it implies about the nature of the Joker's plans, and by extension, The Joker, himself), deconstructing and psychoanalyzing language, and all that jazz.
