My self-summary
A lot of people don't like talking about themselves. But you know what, I've recently found out there's something a LOT WORSE than that: telling other people about themselves.

So go ahead, let yourself be a bit fucking selfish. That's going to be the theme of this profile (hopefully, once I finish updating it) and if I should end up in a relationship with somebody I meet here, I hope she's a bit selfish, too—I'd LIKE her (you) to be a bit selfish. I can think of no greater compliment than someone deciding to be with me out of her own self-interest.

I am a happily libtarded, self-identified feminist. You might roll your eyes at me because:

- the letters I write are too long
- I eat (and cook) scrambled eggs with chopsticks
- I dance like I'm a gay man on MDMA
- for how I pronounce the word 'schedule'

Which is to say that I'm a bit verbose, I can make a great Thai-style curry from scratch but I probably suck at grilling steaks, I'm a bit sexually ambiguous in how I express myself, and... eh, you'll hear how I talk soon enough, if you're interested. Probably doesn't seem that I'm very "Albertan", but I've been here at least long enough to be tired of that stereotype.
What I’m doing with my life
....I don't have any travel stories, though.

I have exploratory stories of a different sort.
I’m really good at
Well, I think I'm not very judgmental and I'm quite ready to admit my flaws. That's not much fun to talk about, is it? Ooookay...

Fine. We're all adults here, and I'm fucking brilliant at performing oral sex, because it's my favourite thing by far. This profile was not designed to get me just that, but it IS a pretty important component of my desire.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Gaaaaaaaaah.

I prefer electronic music. I like Massive Attack, Amon Tobin / Two Fingers, RJD2, Flume, Boards of Canada, L'Orange, Kanye, Daniel Avery, Bonobo, Nina Simone. I've a large Japanoise/Industrial collection, too. Dislikes: modern rock & country, commercial radio.

Film: more weird shit. I am subtitles, animation, and drama. Like Wes Anderson (esp. Fantastic Mr Fox and Grand Budapest Hotel), Holy Motors, any Miyazake / Kurosawa, Mr Nobody, Mary and Max (I cried), Her, Kung Fu Hustle, Cidade de Deus, Les triplettes de Belleville, American History X, Truman Show. Dislikes: plot arcs where the chief romantic coupling suffers a petty misunderstanding at 3/4 film length just so that they can make amends in the action-and-melodrama -packed climax.

Telly: not much. Most recently Bojack Horseman. Brilliant. I've also enjoyed Archer, Community, OINTB, Sense8; loved South Park for a long time, but after a whole season where it felt like their social criticism had been cut down to a lot of really tired observations on "political correctness" I kinda moved on ...I've watched all of 30 Rock, and Holy Shit Tina Fey is the full package. Come to think of it— clever, strong-willed, petite left-handed women constitute the majority of my romantic crushes so far.

Food: I crave SPICY. And I can sort of cook: Thai, Indian, and Szechuan -style dishes (from scratch, or it doesn't count). Olives and mushroom and spinach, oh my; kimchee, cheese, avocado! Mostly I'm a vegetarian, because I like it.

Books: Lolita; Gödel, Escher, Bach; that's all I can think of at the moment
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm a 100% self-taught programmer but mostly console stuff, I really wish I knew more about networky protocols than I do. I guess I'm sort of nerdy, but I'm really not "nerdy / geeky" in that hip pop-culture way. Not at all.

.... but oh my fucking God. The Internet Wayback Machine has a record of my dating profile 6 months after I lost my virginity.

I grew up the oldest of 4, three sisters, while up to 14 children lived in my home while I was growing up. I'm great with kids, but I don't think I want any of my own. I think children are evil.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trapping unwary Pokémon Go players on the Legislature grounds near my apartment.

Once I've caught a few dozen of 'em I plan to start an ironic underground fighting league. First rule: tell everyone all about it.
