I am queer. I love men, I love women, I love people who identify somewhere else along the spectrum. The human body is neat and fun in all of its forms. Human interaction is even better. And man - brains are *sexy*!
Fozzie Bear is my patronus (this week, anyway).
It was in my review. I asked if I should be wearing a cape to work.
I'm also good at cooking, and do it for large groups. I'm great on a grill.
And the rainbow (or very very short) hair.
I'm not especially shy about being me. (Though I can be quiet. Come closer, so you can hear me!)
Books: It has words in it, yes? I will read it. I always have a book with me, often an e-book.
Movies: Movies are amusing. The ones I watch when nothing else sounds interesting... Mathilda, American Beauty, So I Married An Axe Murderer, Ghostbusters, Star Wars (IV, V, VI), The Big Lebowski..
Music: Shawn Colvin, Allison Krauss, the Normal Brothers, Aimee Mann, Glen Phillips, The White Stripes, Cake, Beautiful South, Nickle Creek, Bonnie Raitt, Great Big Sea, TMBG... and more, and more, and more.
Food: My cooking, food cooked for me, interesting food, new food, tasty food - really, I just like food. Mexican (good mexican, especially sonoran) is my comfort food. Grilling is beyond food and into religion.
snuggles, reading material, my blankie, conversation, a kitchen and friends.
How friends find each other, how people interact, how different
that is in different places and situations.
How to get to Antarctica sometime soon (no luck yet, but I did support a team that went down in early 2013), other interesting travel I'd like to do, scuba diving, generally living the adventure story.
Designing or re-designing knit items, getting ahead on my holiday knitting, playing with yarn, being obsessively organized about my knitting. (Though if you don't knit, I don't think I babble about it a whole lot.)
Other crafty things - painting, designing jewelry, beadwork. Debating picking up (another) musical instrument. Singing along with music, no matter where I am.
Deep space networking, field season planning, how to best organize a new project, ways to make my job easier, ways to NOT be irreplaceable professionally.
kinky sex, beautiful things, hugging trees, fascinating brains, how best to communicate things...
I think a lot, about all sorts of things.
That I'm polyamorous, and not especially interested in monogamy (read: not willing to walk away from people I love). I'm not especially interested in relationships that exist to be labels, or having a relationship at the whim of someone I'm not dating. I'm working hard on cultivating an allergy to drama.
Or - that I have a chronic illness that sometimes limits what I can do, and causes me to not be able to always be as consistent as I'd like. I hate this, and I'm always doing everything I can to improve it, but it is a fact of my life.
I want to know your stories because they're interesting and they're new and they're *information*... PLUS they tell me more about you!
I'm easily amused, like puns more then I should necessarily admit and am terribly gullible at times.
...you're hopeful, doubtful and (perhaps not) completely insane. Oh, and you like to laugh. If you're a lover and a dreamer.
...our first conversation won't need to be about how amazing it is to discover that there are geek girls (or similar).
...you have an adventure story to share with me - or any story at all, really.
...you enjoy reading, telling and/or hearing bedtime stories.
...you'd like to go adventuring - big or small, park or museum - drop me a line. I'm always looking for people to adventure with.
...you scan bookshelves to gain insight on people, as you get to know them.
...A bookstore or coffee and chat sounds like a fantastic first date to you. (That's not a requirement, but I'm likely to say no to a situation where we won't get to talk.)
