My self-summary
40% paranoia, 20% loud, foul-mouthed overcompensation, 30% genuine respect and love for myself, 10% philosophical angst, 20% irrational joy, 40% politeness, 50% brutal honesty, 50% practical problem-solving, 20% overprotective loyalty, 0% time for people who abuse that loyalty, 40% nerd and 100% bad at math.

I have a lot of some things, like feelings, opinions, questions, body fat, good people in my life, activities I enjoy, and work to do.

I have less of other things, like sleep, money, and time to waste on intentionally hurtful or inconsiderate behaviour. Including my own.

I am not laid back, like at all. I get super passionate about things and rant like a crazy person. I struggle to control the uncontrollable in life. I have an incredibly low tolerance for boredom. If you want someone chill and relaxing, I can't help you. Excitement, intellectual exercise, fierce affection and loyalty, that I can do.

I'm instinctively mostly monogamous. I might be up for a poly thing but my experiences with trying full poly (not just sleeping around or casual dating) have been stressful and involved a lot of extra work and drama. So I'm going to be hesitant to get seriously involved with someone who's already in a committed relationship or form a committed relationship with someone who wants to get seriously involved with someone else.
What I’m doing with my life
I sing, play guitar and write songs. I have a youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/MsFeyCreature/ where I sometimes record and upload these songs.

I am also part of a band called the Dial-Up Raiders. We've been playing open mics and are organizing our first show soon.

Playing video games. Badly.

Playing Magic: the Gathering. Badly.

Scanning and cataloguing 20-year old paperwork.

LARPing. These days I mostly play Changeling: The Lost.
I’m really good at
Singing, dancing, reading really fast, talking even faster, making animal noises, getting distracted, focusing really intently, getting to the point, being a hard-ass when needed, going from the point into outer frigging space, swearing at unfortunate moments, listening, cuddling, knowing when something's wrong, injuring myself and then having no idea how I did it, losing my glasses. Also, I am a really good travel companion, which I am honestly proud of.
The first things people usually notice about me
Great eyebrows. Also I remind you of someone you know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anything written by Lois McMaster Bujold or Terry Pratchett, Kage Baker, Kate Griffin, Douglas Adams, Spider Robinson and the Strangers in Paradise graphic novels/comics/whatever. I read a lot of science fiction and fantasy from the library, chosen on the basis of "this looks cool."

I'm not that into movies but I like watching them with people. I'll pick favourites mostly from whatever I've been watching that was neat. In TV there is currently Food Wars, Durarara, Dr. Who, and Gotham.

I like a lot of music, but here's the short list. Sarah Slean, Janelle Monae, Amanda Palmer, Melissa Kaplan (currently doing the "Universal Hall Pass" project, in case you want to look her up, previously of a band called Splashdown), The Pink Spiders, Jonathan Coulton, the Danger Bees, Prozzac, Imogen Heap, Brody Dalle (both in The Distillers and Spinnerette), Die Mannequin, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the Barenaked Ladies, La Roux, the Offspring, Deirdre Flint, Metric, Bif Naked, and pretty much any drinking song. I also love musicals, my favourite being Cabaret.

Favourite food would be either butter chicken or pad thai, depending on my mood.

There isn't a category for it, but I'm going to list my top games and game series anyway: Prince of Persia: Sands of Time and 3D (yes, I actually liked PoP 3D), Knights of the Old Republic (one and two), Zelda (ocarina of time, then majora's mask, then oracle of ages/seasons, then link's awakening), and Myst (Exile being my favourite, but I love all of them, though Uru is clearly the underdeveloped runt of the litter). Oh, and Day of the Tentacle (not what it sounds like), both Portal games and Tomb Raider (all the ones I've played anyway, I actually like the new one.)
The six things I could never do without
Words, in all their many fascinating forms, music, new information and experiences, a few solid people I can count on, occasional time away from everyone else, something useful to do.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Work, sex, gender, abstract ideas and ideals, how to make everything less stupid and broken. Lately since I've been spending a lot of time on dating apps I've been thinking about the basic problem of even well-intentioned modern chivalry, which is that it still involves doing for women things they are fully capable of doing for themselves. If you do me a favour because we're friends, if you hold a door out of general courtesy, if you offer to get dinner because you know I'm having money troubles, cool. But I don't need your charity just because I'm a woman.
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't think I've ever had a typical friday night. I'm probably playing music, or playing magic, or out drinking, or at home drinking, or watching tv, or playing games, or sleeping.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am mostly indifferent to pets. I can find them cute, might even be willing to look after them, but I will never love your pet the way you do. As far as I'm concerned it's just a small, kinda dumb furry roommate who sometimes does funny things.
You should message me if
You want to talk. Kissing is nice, but I want to know who I'm kissing first. I'm weird like that.

You find me interesting and want to ask me about stuff I'm doing or stuff I know. You have stuff you're doing or stuff you know that you want to share.

You have some event or attraction you want to check out but don't want to go alone.

You actually live in or near Toronto. I don't really need pen pals.
