My self-summary
PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, READ THIS:
• I don't reply to messages from people who haven't posted pictures. I've got pictures up, and fair is fair.
• I'm not interested in helping attached men cheat on their significant others. If that's what you take from my 'most private thing I'm willing to admit', then read it again. Use a dictionary if you need to. Open relationship - all good. Cheating - sod off. Please. =)

Okay, now that's out of the way:
• I write well. Really well. In fact, I recently had a short story published in an anthology - my first! That's the book in my profile pic. I'm still a little excited about this. =)
• I earn a living by doing PR and media for a non-profit.
• Yes, I'm really that short. ;P
• I speak Italian because my mom's parents never learned English. I've also begun studying German, in a half-assed kinda way.
• I have a Master's degree in Communication and Social Justice.
• I wrote my thesis on Canadian independent music as political action. This led directly to me kinda-sorta managing an indie music collective for a while. It also set me on the path towards some very significant events and relationships.
•I can't decide if Berlin or Warsaw is my favourite city in the world.
•My nose has been pierced since I was 21 or so. I also have a tattoo right between my shoulder blades. I love it.
• I adore dogs. The bigger, the better. I'm perfectly happy to play with a bull mastiff, but chihuahuas make me nervous.
• I've learned to love cats, too. In fact, I have one - a neurotic little ginger-and-white male named Sid (Vicious).
• Moxy Fruvous still ranks high on my list of favourite bands. I will fight with you about this. Yes, even after all THAT.
• I love going for walks. Especially when there's a Cold Stone Creamery at the end.
• I think M*A*S*H, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The X-Files were absolutely incredible pieces of pop culture.
• I may be a little bit in love with Johnny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes. And Benedict Cumberbatch.
• Men in eyeliner are hot beyond belief.
• Ruby Rose might be the most attractive person I've ever seen, of either gender.

The first things people usually notice about me
Physically, my height or my eyes (I was once told not to wear eyeliner because it makes me look like a creepy doll.)

Good music.
Good books.
My family and friends.
My sense of humour.
An open mind.
A healthy disrespect for convention.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about what comes next. And why some people feel the need to tell me I'm short. Do they think it's escaped my notice for the past three decades? ;)

I also spend some of my time wondering why my cat attacks walls.
On a typical Friday night I am
On a typical Friday night I'm with friends (watching a movie, seeing a play, having dinner, listening to music, hanging out) or flaked out on my couch.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't think that monogamy is the only choice out there. I'm not against it, I just believe other options have an equal chance of working.
You should message me if
You're up for a burlesque show. Or just coffee. Either way. =)
