My self-summary
I make food for a living.

I'm looking for friends and partners in crime... maybe dating if we click?

It would be great to have some of these things in common if we're likely to get along: pubs>clubs, gorging on good TV dramas, beer, overthinking everything all the time everywhere, daydreaming, couch-cuddling, sarcasm, architecture, nerdery, the worst jokes ever, quiet time, American politics as spectator sport (and Jon Stewart and Colbert), and cheese.

If you don't identify as a feminist, if you don't believe that Black Lives Matter, and if you think privilege doesn't exist, we will not get along.

I really like honest, genuine people. Creativity is a big winner in my books too, as is willingness to get into deep, meandering conversations.

I am fidgety, spoony, and surprisingly crunchy.

If you 'like' me, send a message, hey?
What I’m doing with my life
Cooking (well). Trying to figure out how to be a good feminist & trans ally without stomping about with privilege (jury's out on success rate; you tell me!). Painting (poorly).
I’m really good at
This is one of those things I'm really thinking about these days.

I'm really good at overthinking is what I'm saying here.

Apparently I'm pretty good at making dinner. And breakfast. In bed, if you're special.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably that I'm being sarcastic, I dunno. What did you notice first?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot. Some favourite authors: Guy Gavriel Kay, Tolkien, Noam Chomsky, Neal Stephenson, Stephen R. Donaldson. Hmm. Should probably start reading more female authors. Suggestions? (NOT Margaret Atwood thanks.) I also devour a lot of longform journalism online.

TV, short list: Top Chef, Hell's Kitchen (guilty pleasure), MasterChef (ditto), Mad Men, Rome, House of Cards (both versions), Modern Family (one of the funniest, most adorably realistic sitcoms ever), Carnivale (so disappointed they didn't get to finish the full storyline), AbFab, Community (even though it is a shambling zombie corpse of what it once was). Slings and Arrows is one of the best TV shows ever, ever made.

I will eat pretty much anything. Not really into offal. You can be vegetarian, that's cool, but no judgement if I eat meat (and no judgement that you don't).

Movies, random sampling: Hunger Games, Pulp Fiction, LOTR, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, RED (and the second; I would watch Helen Mirren read the phonebook for two hours).

Music: mainly stuff that goes thump, mainly mid 90s-early 00s.
The six things I could never do without
Knives, fire, internet, beer, books, no pants.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
New stuff, lately. How you don't notice privilege growing up, and then it starts slapping you in the face. And how weird that is.

Where my life is going, where I want it to go, where it's been.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing with knives and fire so you can have a lovely dinner.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I broke my arm falling out of bed.
You should message me if
You're awesome and interesting, you think I'm awesome and interesting, and we might share some cross-awesomosity in some fashion. And the age range above is more about who I'm likely to be interested in the sex kind of arena. Possible friends come in all ages and genders and such. No transphobia here, either.

Intersectionality or GTFO

Just because I've looked at your profile and not messaged you doesn't mean I'm necessarily not interested; maybe I don't feel I fit your criteria or something.
