My self-summary
First things first, I'm a huge geek. Yes, I can tell you what T.A.R.D.I.S stands for and yes, I can name all 13 models of Cylon. And I'm a Marvel girl not a DC girl.
I love film and television. I co-produce 2 podcasst covering genre television with 3 friends, and I regularly guest on other podcasts to discuss television and film.
I'm a passionate atheist and secularist.
I also love illustration. I have recently finished designing a tarot deck! I also run a small online business selling prints of my drawings.
I'm not really a "clubby" person. These days I am far happier in a pub, a cinema or snuggled up at home in front of a DVD.
As I don't drive I tend to do a lot of walking and I love exploring new places on foot. I love to travel. My latest trips were Budapest with my sister, and visiting my podcast co-hosts in New York last year.
I'm loyal, romantic, tactile and love to laugh, and looking for someone similar.
Oh, and my favourite Muppet is Rowlf.
