The first thing you should know about me is that I'm not actually a drag queen as my profile picture suggests but I am a total geek (or know it all - depending on your perspective - which is probably based upon the who wants to shag who and how much directive). Not a WOW, or War Hammer geek though. Put your tongue back in your mouth and your 12 sided die away! I mean that I like real intellectual pursuits. I like understanding the cutting edge of topics and discussing philosophy at length, with people who have good vocabulary. I read New Scientist and am about 6 months away from completing a PhD researching Amazonian Shamanism in Britain. Maybe i'm a nerd, or a dork. Not sure, but I am definitely sapiosexual. I also suffer ennui when people mistake dominance with intellect. It's a well played record but in my experience I have found that many men struggle to accept a woman of intellect. Great as a teacher, or GP, but not as a missus. So please be the exception. Let's share. Sharing's great.
It seems I keep striking up great conversation with great guys and just abandoning them as my life gets in the way and I forget to return to my profile. I do want to date - honestly - I just keep forgetting to. Sorry you really are going to have to make an impact. Demanding aren't I? Online dating is too easy otherwise.
I try to keep fit and cycle a lot. I watch ALL the films. Don't own a TV. Have no idea if shamanism has any answers. I have a Kitty Douche Bag. I'm a liberal but not a hippy. I'm a hippy but not a liberal. I don't believe things are so clear cut. I like Deleuze but think he was a cunt. I swear a lot in social situations and think people who don't appreciate swear words as the illustrative crayons they are, are complete twatting bell ends. It is the intent that should cause offence not a collection of graphics/phonics in and of them self.
I've kinds given up hope of having a family now. In part I blame the government. In part my poor life choices - mostly made because of the government. I think Jeremy Corbyn should be Prime Minister and shape the country in my vision. For me.
I spent years trying to be perfect in spirit/character. Now I think fuck it, there was nothing wrong with your over opinionated foul mouth in the first place. Some people need to be told they are a cunt. Trying to be angelic causes you to repress such things, which in turn causes more harm. See nothing is simple.
So it's firmly established, i'm an arrogant, snobbish, sweary, offensive, contradictory twat who has no hope of starting a family and over complicates things. Don't date me.
Blogging and writing about academia.
Working as an Admin assistant despite almost daily reminders that I should be doing much more with my time.
Some community work.
Playing my guitar for no good reason other than I want to.
Attempting to understand consciousness, spirit and the question to which 42 is the answer.
MOVIES: Eternal sunshine for the spotless mind, Batman, marvel comic adaptations, psychological thrillers, art house, most action, horror, good stoner comedies, The Extraordinary Adventures of Adèle Blanc-Sec (and a good few Luc Besson movies), definitely Christopher Nolan's work, Pi, Primer, Memento, The Prestige, anything with Christian Bale in (except Mary, Mother of Jesus), The Game, Donny Darko, Revolver, Spider, Inception, The imaginarium of Dr Parnassus, Mr Nobody, Cloud Atlas, Lynch, Gilliam, Cubrik, Cronenburg, Fincher.

FOOD: My diet is a nightmare. I have type 2 diabetes and have to be ridiculously careful about everything. Essentially I have to eat super healthy.
