I'm moving to Seoul for a few years so I can study Korean, and now I get ridiculously gleeful whenever I recognize words or understand cultural references.
My brain trends towards random intuitive leaps and collecting tidbits of information like some sort of demented trivia magpie. I see weird patterns and I don't judge, which makes me a good person to talk through problems with.
I will read anything you put in front of me, but I mostly own fiction. Dead tree format, because it will survive being dropped in the tub. Except that it turns out that it's hard to move around the world dragging an entire library of dead trees, so I've reluctantly started reading ebooks. You know what really doesn't work in ebook format? A book with copious footnotes.
All time favorite authors include Terry Pratchett (clearly) and Georgette Heyer. Also reading more modern stuff from Seanan McGuire and Kevin Hearne.
TV & Movies:
Leverage is my absolute favorite show. It's five seasons of heists and cons with sterling character development throughout.
Also enjoy Archer, Phineas & Ferb, Doctor Who, British comedies, and many but not all things by Joss Whedon. And I am giddy for Galavant, to the point where despite my ruined voice (long story) I will sing the entire damn thing unless you actively stop me from doing so.
I watched an obscene amount of Korean television this past year trying to get a feel for the language (probably several thousand hours of leaving it running in the background while I worked), and am now burned out on it.
I love food as an experience, it's one of my favorite adventures, because it almost always works out well. Except for 멍게, which is the worst thing I have ever put in my mouth and was a terrible, terrible decision.
- Freedom (both physical and in the form of choices and opportunities)
- The ability to write
- An internet connection
Lately I'm spending a lot of my free time writing.
Please DO NOT message me if you don't respect that I'm polyamorous. I am not interested in disposable relationships of any variety. I want sparkly, fizzy dating that evolves into profound, enduring relationships with people it feels good to share my life with. If sex is ALL you're seeking, look elsewhere, or we'll both end up disappointed.
