My self-summary
I am a particularly abnormal person, and I'm not just saying that. In many ways, I am a bit of a contradiction. Randomization is something I enjoy very much and, while I am slow to really get to know people, the more you do more, the more interesting and exciting I become. I love animals, and currently own one dog, a beagle/border collie mix who is my life partner.. or at least I'm his.. I lived in Saskatchewan for a year just recently, and am glad to be home, though also for the experience.

I love books, writing, pens, paper, notebooks, all of that totally awesome stuff.. I like to be outdoors, though it doesn't always like me back (allergies, etc). I love watching movies and cuddling up, or really, just about anything that involves cuddling up, though I also need my time to do my own thing, since many of my hobbies are one-person activities. The best way I've found to accomplish both are together-but-separate activities; for example, two people sitting, curled against either side of the couch or just touching, each reading their own book but every now and then sharing something from it.

Walking is something I enjoy, mostly when I don't have a particular destination, and my dog and I go out for a musical wander, in which my mp3 player plays a huge role. I like board games, because I'm just that cool, and video games, but can only play certain ones, due to a distinct lack in depth perception. I wear glasses for reading, but not for anything else, and I forget them a lot of the time, causing me some pretty nasty headaches as my eyes try to force-focus on things that they can't.

I'm slightly obsessed with zombies, Tinkerbell, horror stories, and the like. If it's cute and/or terrifying, there's a good chance I'm interested.

I am unique, addictive, and unexpected
What I’m doing with my life
Currently just puttering through until I get to the good stuff. I have to make my basket before I put my eggs in it, metaphorically.

This, it seems, ought to be elaborated on, as I've had some questions about it. I'm currently working my way through writing a book, and this one is going along much better than usual. The outcome of this in the next couple of years, while I work to save up some money and get my license to go to post-secondary school (most likely for either Early Childhood Education or English Literature/Writer's Craft), will affect which course I take. Training my pets into great critters, all that stuff.
I’m really good at
Spelling, grammar, punctuation. I love my language, and I'm darn good at it. I'm pretty decent at my music - singing, a little guitar, a little piano, and I used to play violin for a while - which I haven't been as involved in as I'd like to be, but there's plenty of time yet for that, yet. I'm awesome with animals, and even better with children, both of whom I just seem to understand even when the rest of the world is one big pile of fail. I write surprisingly well, stories both long and short, poetry, and various other things, though not lyrics or songs, as I've found I just somehow don't enjoy that as much as the other. At least not yet.
The first things people usually notice about me
I really couldn't tell you, I don't spend much of my time noticing myself.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
It takes a lot to get on my favourites list. These are what I've got so far, gathered over the years of my life. (At least, what I've got that I can remember).

Books: A Song of Ice and Fire (series), Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, the Narnia series, everything Janet Evanovich, Douglas Adams, Spider Robinson (+100 points if you know who this is), and more to come as I remember it!

Movies: Planet Terror, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Across the Universe, Edward Scissorhands, Pride and Prejudice (with Keira Knightly - this version was so good!), Sweeney Todd, Dawn of the Dead, The Shining, Indiana Jones (mostly the originals, though I don't mind the new one), Amityville Horror (the original), Idiocracy, Cloverfield, .

Music: Generally, I'm happy with almost anything, except for rap. I listen to the top hit list, as well as love quite a few unknown or unique stuff. Mostly, it falls somewhere in the genre of 'rock' music, including oldies, newies, rock mixed with other genres, heavier rock, lighter rock, soft rock, alternative rock.. Also been into the rave and goth scenes at different moments in my life, and enjoy classical as well. Musically, I'm a well rounded person.

Food: I love to eat, though my body protests some of this, but I rarely love to cook. I found a great formula before, where I'm happy cooking as long as I can hang out with my SO while I do it, and we both cook together, but I also like to be cooked for. I'm not ridiculously good at it, though the things I do make are amazing.

Colour: Green and Purple
Six things I could never do without
1. My music. 2. My dog. 3. My family. 4. My writing. 5. Books/Paper. 6. Water and/or Trees.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything. I just tend to spend a lot of time thinking in general.

Zombies and the upcoming, one day zombiepocalypse. Are you prepared? Seriously, though, I really do love zombies. And monkeys. Be forewarned.
On a typical Friday night I am
With my dog. I spend an inordinate amount of time with him.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not. It's private for a reason. Though I am willing to answer, if somebody asks about things.
You should message me if
You're curious. That's about it.

Also, if you know the meaning of the word 'quixotic', or are aware of the existence of Spider Robinson. Being intelligent in either one impresses me.

I respectfully ask that your first message not say something like, what is your book/writing about. It is possibly the most annoying question I can get. Finishing a book is hard enough without every person thinking they should know all about it before it is done. Spoiler alert much.

Please note that, originally, my gender orientation was set to 'straight', though I changed it as I felt I was being dishonest. However, I had done that because I am currently not looking to be involved with a woman, due to personal reasons regarding to past happenings. I am, however, open to new friends?

Do NOT message me if... (My Rant)

Now I don't mean to seem bitchy, I really don't, but I'm at my wit's end here. What is the suspected outcome of ignoring what I've written? I keep receiving messages from people asking if I'll get naked on cam, send them nude photos, meet up for 'fun', from people who are 10, 20, 30 years my senior, etc, etc. If I wanted to be a tramp, I'd advertise that I was into that kind of thing. If I wanted to take dirty photos for strangers, I'd have profile pictures with pouty lips, skimpy clothes, and shots prepared specifically for attention and viewers pleasure. If I wanted a man from a different generation, I would say that I was interested in older men. Where does it say any of that?

Trust me, I'm not stupid, and you aren't going to trick me into having sex with you. You aren't the be all end all gift to women, you aren't so sexy that I'm going to drop my pants and forget my morals, you're pictures of your naked chest and nothing else impress me no more than a skanky girl taking nude pictures of her chest and posting them all over the place.. which disgusts me. Men can be whores too, you know.

Despite this rant, I'm not a mean person, just a little jaded.
The two of us
