I am blithe, flippant, irreverent—and these three tag-words still apply, 12 years later. Though, if I had my druthers, I would add three more to balance them. I am also chronically disorganised, self-punishing, and melodramatic. There. Druthers! I has thems!
OH HEY ALSO: I discovered at the doctor's office I'm 1.68m! I thought my whole adult life that I was 1.64!
I should mention here that I'm not looking for anything but friendship. Please do write me if you're awesome. Especially if you like fibre and yarn! Or printmaking!
I met (and married!) this guy ----> Dazibao !!! And it is pretty great.
Also, honestly? Thinking about jams and nut butters all the time. I am really, really, boring. I probably should consider moonlighting as a squirrel.
Around about five years ago I figured out how to start using my middle gears, and that was sort of magical. Maybe when I'm in my fifties I'll discover I'm rubbish at driving stick and I dropped my transmission back somewhere in my thirties and never realised it, but at the moment I'm surprisingly balanced.
I make a lot of stupid faces. I don't mean to, but I do it when I'm talking. I make them, my face is exaggeratedly animated, and so I guess that is also something else I am good at.
I used to be pretty great at naps but I lost that talent, I think when I started exercising more. I am super great at mashing together all the languages I know and sort-of know. I really love the dutch diminutives -tje and -ke. I blame living in Belgium for years and years.
ARE YOU LISTENING, BELGIUM?! I BLAME YOU!
Other than that, I don't know anymore.
I wrote the above seven years ago and it still applies. As time has progressed however, I've added a few things to the list. I would really like, honestly, to spend less time thinking. But that will never happen.
I spend a lot of time talking to other people in my head. Mostly, we quote passages from books at each other. It makes me very tired.
I'm crooked-faced, heavy-hipped, prone to melancholy and full of dark humour. What else? I am disturbingly earnest.
I'm bewilderingly boring!
I am an ompy stompy tiny grammar-nazi robot, and you can find me on Ravelry!
And I just realised a whole bunch of my friends that I met through OKc have me in their profile photos with them, which is delightful and also slightly appalling.
