I just moved to Cairns from Melbourne (previously Sydney) and I would love for you to show me around and give me a local's perspective.
I'm nerdy, friendly, calculating, hopeful, and doing just fine. I'm a planner looking to meet a doer for adventures, I'll bring the snacks and sunscreen. I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to say something about being laid back or my Myers-Briggs here, but no thank you. I'm well beyond being self conscious or embarrassed, I'm here to enjoy it, whatever that means today. I'm always up for a new experience, that's mostly what I'm looking for right now.
I recently moved to Australia from the US and am thus mercurial, excitable, and smile too much.
If you know anyone sponsoring, let me know.
Seeming like someone you've known for years after a week.
Alternatively, how incredibly femme I am. Bows, dresses, and makeup every day. I dress like I'm going somewhere nice to get drunk on a porch. One of my very good friends just saw me in pants for the first time.
I am very excited to be here.
Movies: Oh no, so many. American Beauty, Remember the Titans, V for Vendetta, Lord of the Rings, Secretary, The Mummy, Soul Food, Up, Timer, Se7en. Anything with Kevin Spacey. Most things with super heroes. Some Asian horror. Deep abiding love of Disney. Drop Dead Gorgeous is entirely underrated. I've more or less stopped watching movies though, because I stopped staying inside long enough to do that. Save me.
Shows: Game of Thrones, Buffy, BSG, Rick and Morty, Broad City, Steven Universe, Supernatural, 6 Feet Under, Dexter, Gossip Girl, Dr. Who, Sherlock, Bojack Horseman, 30 Rock, OITNB, most cartoons for adults (and a fair amount that aren't).
Music: Amanda Palmer, PWR BTTM, Regina Spector, The Front Bottoms, Jim Croce, Arlo Guthrie, Simon and Garfunkel, Garfunkel and Oates, Jenny Lewis, anything I can dance to, sadboy songs to make me cry, Broadway musicals, and the sound of Chicago at night.
Food: Fish, avocado, Pad Thai, tortillas, fruit snacks, this is a terrible question. Hold the tomatoes. Update: I'm working on the tomatoes thing. Second update: it's going as one would expect. Third update: tomatoes are better in Australia.
I wonder why they picked six though? Five is nice and round. Seven's lucky. Why six?
Or, you know, out drinking, hanging around with friends, watching B movies, reading, not watching Netflix in bed.
Recently, running a campaign for some Sydney friends.
More recently, trying to make friends in Melbourne. I never got past the kindergarten version of "I like you, let's be friends" and apparently adults do not like that.
Neil Gaiman tweeted at me. Twice.
I'm reading your profile for book suggestions.
You think sitting on the couch watching cartoons or reading sounds just as fun as going out to dinner somewhere new or a street festival. And you want to experience both.
You have a car and want to take me to the woods (and definitely not murder me).
You think pizza and beer sounds like a romantic first date.
You want to go on a first date.
You don't want to go on a first date.
Get at me before I walk into traffic playing Pokemon GO.
In the words of Margaret Cho, but not Cheap Trick, I want you to want me. Send me a real message.
Tip: I use the like/star button a lot, so it's easy to find out if I'm interested.
