I have been living in this city for some years, moving here from Austria to start doing what creatively and intellectually really stimulates me.
I can be shy but also excitable like you wouldn't believe. I am also very open about how i feel (a blessing and a curse, depending on the situation) .
In more recent news, i quit smoking about 9 months ago after 23 years and replaced it with exercise.
To keep this simple and to avoid potential grammar disasters (english third language and all that) I'll just sum it up all nice in bite sized factoids.
Things i like:
Can't emphasize this one enough: conversation
(not small talk, that's like foreplay, but without all the fun)
People who say how they feel and actually feel how they claim
traveling, last was australia, next is iceland
the smell of coffee
Things i don't like:
binge drinking for it's own sake
Television (with a few exceptions)
Granville weekend night life
being more or less confined to your table in any bar
the taste of coffee
oh, and here is one of my favorite things on the internet
having fun when i can
meeting new people
learning some more
Travel whenever i can
spending forever in 1 spot trying to get that 'perfect shot'..
dan simmons - the terror
Ursula k leguin - the disposessed
neil gaiman - american gods
philip k dick - man in the high castle
george orwell - homage to catalonia
orson scott card - speaker for the dead
John scalzi - old man's war
Also harlan ellison, richard mathesson, ray bradbury
the thin red line
All akira kurosawa movies
Any older wong kar wai movie
Evil dead 2
Big trouble in little china
avatar - the last airbender
dr who(up until about 2 seasons ago, im counting on Capaldi now)
manic street preachers
Primus(frog brigade, etc)
just about anything, crazy about avocado
affection, both physical and verbal
I love going on photo safaris at night to capture anything interesting i find. for some shots from my travels and other photo experiments, here is a flickr account that i am in the process of populating.
extra bonus for hilarious comments from my dad
I also find that while i very rarely get attracted to people, when it does happen i go from 'you're interesting' to 'i want to do naughty things to you' in the blink of an eye.
Message me if that, or anything else in this profile resonates with you, but i am not looking for internet pen pals (i stole that line from someone else admittedly) but rather to meet in person.
Thanks for reading,
Talk to you soon, or best of luck !
