My self-summary
In a previous life all I wanted to be was a musician. Sadly not as in the cool, hipster type musicians that hang out buying old vinyls in (insert cool area here), but an infinitely more awesome classical flute player. Imagine me as a female Ron Burgundy, if you will. But alas, my dream of shooting fire out the end of my flute was not to be and so the awesome-police took my flute away, and I ended up being an academic instead....which actually, I truly love more than anything else. So now I'm owning geek – like all the other cool kids do.
What I’m doing with my life
So I've been travelling the globe, collecting various degrees, working some academicy-type jobs and now I'm doing my PhD in that most un-academicy of places – Los Angeles! Maybe that dream of being a celebrity flautist (because these most definitely exist) will come true after all. Finally, I shall be discovered!

Despite officially living in LA, I'm actually back in the UK and other parts of Europe until January 2014. Although I'm mostly based in Brighton, everything here is so close compared to the US that it feels like the whole continent is my proverbial oyster.
I’m really good at
Making inappropriate jokes and innuendoes.
Drinking red wine/whisky/rum/gin and overthinking the world's problems.
Offending Americans.
Swearing (see above).
Living in Scandinavia.
Being too sarcastic for my own good.
Planning an infinite number of hikes but not quite getting around to them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food is simple: Indian wins hands-down every time. But generally, I like something with a bit of spice to it, and something you have to eat with your hands. I like to get messy with my food.

Caffeine is the nectar of the gods. In all forms.

...So I had to give away all my books when I moved to the US – practically enough to start a library. It was probably harder than saying goodbye to my friends. Therefore listing books is kinda pointless at this juncture. Let's just say I like ALL THE BOOKS, okay??

Music is another 'I like too much to list' category for me. I essentially like anything that is a solid, exemplary example of its genre, and I have no shame in liking both totally poppy things and then completely obscure, avant-garde, 21st structuralist instrumental music. I think years of music training make you almost slightly indifferent to music at times.

However. I might be a little weird with what I do and do not like, but I DO get frustrated when people completely define and judge others by their music/TV/film genre choices. Go ahead and like all the music you like, but if you can't deal with me finding Morrisey dull and repetitive, then we're going to have to have a serious dance off.

However, if you CAN get over that, then please let me steal your music collection. My iTunes is very confused and seems to no longer work in any country. Damn you apple for punishing me because I cheated on you with an android phone!
Six things I could never do without

A genie to give me 7 things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether one day we'll discover that our human concept of time is completely wrong
On a typical Friday night I am
Normally spontaneously drinking after promising myself I would stay in to finish a research proposal. If I'm lucky, that will involve some dancing as well. Dancing in my bedroom counts.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I eat about 2 jars of jalepenos a week.
You should message me if
My attempt at being humorous actually works for you.

If you aren't put off by the fact I kinda don't live in the UK. My future life looks like it will involve lots of travelling and moving around, so that just comes with the package. I love this lifestyle, but I understand it doesn't work for everybody.

Regarding sexy sexuality things, the US demands such extreme labelling and box-putting that I'm getting all teenage-defiant about it and trying to be as unlabelled as possible. However, to not be such a pain in the arse – I see myself to be more queer/pansexual rather than bisexual, and don't really ascribe to traditional concepts of monogamy, gender roles, and other such things. I'm exploring a kink side.

So if you can at least can on board with some of this, go for it!
The two of us
