I love learning and am constantly fascinated by the world. Like trees, for example. And rocks. Have you ever sat down and really looked at a piece of granite? Do it. It's beautiful.
I'm good with knots, I've tamed more than 5 feral cats, and I can whistle (but not snap my fingers). I design things in my head (and on paper) all the time.
My favourite show at the moment is Supernatural, though I don't really watch much television. I alsoreally, really like How It's Made, especially the segments that show people making things by hand, like musical instruments or wooden bowls or... I don't know, felt hats.
Movie: Once upon a time in Mexico, because it's just completely over the top and also Johnny Depp is there. That or Robin Hood: Men in Tights.
Music: I like my music to be either dark and intense, or mellow and hypnotic. I'm actually looking to try some new music, because somehow I have started only listening to classic rock. Oh, and I also love 60's pop. It's completely different from what else I listen to, and I don't know why I like it, I just do. So very, very much. Anyway, suggesting some music to me might be a good way to start a conversation.
My favourite food is probably tabbouli with pita bread - but I love trying new cuisines. I'm also one of those people who doesn't like their food items to touch. So, you know, heads up about that.
My favourite colour is green, my favourite tree is the monkey puzzle tree, my favourite spoon is the grapefruit spoon, my favourite herbal tea is honey-bush, and my favourite season is autumn.

Right now I have a couple sf/f world building projectss on the back burner, I have ideas for at least two paintings, and for costuming I'm working on a steampunk salvage diver. (But I also want to make some snakeskin shoes, a sixth-doctor inspired coat, and a leather duster. And also a different coat. I like coats.) Also Daredevil, because as a blind guy I almoat have to have a Daredevil costume.
I also frequently wonder about the continuity of consciousness. (Are we the same people when we wake up as we were when we went to bed?) and the nature of time.

-You read any of the mentions of me being trans and don't feel the need to say something douchey about it.
