My self-summary
I just found, when I got matched with myself, this profile that I made about 6 years ago and totally forgot about. I have another one, so if you bump into me there ("substituted") you now know wtf is going on. I'll get round to amalgamating them at some point (probably, possibly). Meanwhile here's how I described myself in 2007!

Usually, the fortress is being manned by me and various historical friends that I call on to give me a hand, but somewhere down in the peasant village of my consciousness, there's that little devil that appears on cartoon characters' shoulders, running around pulling the odd lever that I don't even know is there.

The angel dude is acting as the undercover agent that's trying to find the bastard, gag him and bring him back for sadistic torturing. It's a constant game of cat and mouse.

Though it's a bit of a fortress, school of hard knocks and all that, there is a door in the wall that opens from the inside. I'm not bitter :)

I love people of all races and origins. I love all religions (really) and all body shapes and sizes. I love people who laugh at themselves and love people, and I love compassion and giving people the benefit of the doubt - but I'm no sucker.

I am versatile, tenacious, and really weird, but in a good way (honest).
What I’m doing with my life
Researching and administrating. Studying French and Latin. Looking after my kids. I am a single parent.

Trying to become a better person, with varying amounts of success and failure.

I’m really good at
Research. Languages. Making tea. Knowing lots and lots of stuff about all sorts of things that aren't much use to anyone, and then not being able to change a washer on a tap (faucet) or put up a shelf. Arty stuff. Mathy stuff. Bit of a polymath, really.

I don't know if I'm good at these things, but when I do them, people seem to be satisfied with the result.
The first things people usually notice about me
It used to be my wacky haircuts and dye-jobs, but since I got scalp problems I've just had to be a grade 1 man... so nowadays I don't quite know what it is people notice about me. And I guess it would depend on who it was and in what circumstances they met me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
How many books I've read or films I've watched isn't important. Lots of people read lots of books and still learn nothing.

How a person behaves is the greatest testament to what they really, truly KNOW.

The stuff I like is enormously varied and not limited to any particular language, historical period or genre - enough said.
The six things I could never do without
Assuming this is a desert island scenario... Reason, water, food, an intelligent but docile person who is fit and strong and will do whatever I tell him, robusticity (I heart making up words) and a big survival manual. In that order. If I had those things, I could produce all the other stuff.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Wondering whether I'm listening enough. Just where I should draw the line with regard to how much crap I'll take and if there should even be one at all, and if so, shouldn't it be the same line for everyone, or should blood relations get special dispensation?

Also - how much can a person be into Star Trek before they're officially obliged to confess that they're a Trekkie?
On a typical Friday night I am
Maybe playing Scrabble or coming up with a possible premise for a sci-fi movie or comedy sketch. I don't get out much because of the kids, but that's fine with me - I'm not really into big social circles anyway. My social activity outside of home is mostly during daytimes. But quite a bit takes place actually in my home - it's a sort of open house.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not from what you'd call a close-knit family.
Oh, and when I was born, everyone thought I was a girl.
You should message me if
If you feel like it :)
