All alone in an empty room I can find something to stress about, but in the middle of a huge mess I calm right down and get to work. In the face of charm and compliments, I can't help but look for the catch. Once my trust is earned, it takes a lot to break it, sometimes to my detriment.
I'm not always easy to deal with. I'm vulnerable and honest, for better and worse. I'm loyal and protective, for better and worse. To those close to me, I'm basically a puppy.
So why am I here? I suppose I'm looking for packmates. Friends/family, kindred spirits, people who get it. The rest of my team. If that makes any sense to you, you might be one of them. Of course, if it sounds like total nonsense you still might be. I don't know how this shit works.
Oh, and I'm...iffy on the whole poly thing. Open relationships are one thing, and a partner who sleeps around (safely and openly) doesn't bother me, but I do want them to focus on me romantically. I know full-on polyamory works for other people, and that's great, but I prefer to keep it simple.
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.
Transcribing recordings of lawyers arguing.
Doing data entry, organizing and generally whatever needs doing at the Canadian Federation of Musicians (musicians' union).
LARPing. I've been playing Elegy, but I can't afford the time and money right now, so I'm trying out Changeling: The Lost.
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.) These days I play WoW to unwind as well.
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.
