Obligatory FYIs: I am in a long-term relationship that has always been polyamorous. We got married in May 2012. I'm just sayin'. I'm also kind of kinky: switchy, with a preference for sensation play over formal BDSM.
I am a silly, introverted girl who is actively learning not to over-think things so much. My politics lean toward the socialist side of the Green party's platform, and I take them seriously, so if you're someone who thinks the welfare state is not a good thing, you should find someone else. I like video games, knitting, and my cats, but not so much that I don't also want to get to know new people. I am cautious, and can be shy, but am not actually risk-averse.
I am fast, thorough, and sharp as a tack (thanks OKCupid for getting rid of my favorite thing, the 3 adjectives for yourself).
I am quite passionate about small-scale urban agriculture, and in 2010 participated in launching a nonprofit that's built a couple of working farms in Seattle. I don't have a lot of money, but I'm quite willing to put my sweat equity where my mouth is on this.
I'm good at entertaining myself, so I am rarely bored. I have a crude and corny sense of humor, so this section used to say "I'm really good at cheesecake and double entendre." Hur hur.
Video games are actually a more important narrative medium to me than movies; Bioware's Mass Effect trilogy and Dragon Age series are really, really wonderful. As far as TV, I just got one this past winter after living without for about ten years, but a friend got me ridiculously hooked on Supernatural. Oh, suffering mancandy!
Music: Make a Venn diagram out of Lady Gaga, Boiled in Lead, and Melotron. I'm in there somewhere. Wait, David Bowie should be in there somewhere too. Sooj's various iterations (S. J. Tucker, Skinny White Chick, Tricky Pixie) are all excellent. Basically, an unlikely mix of smart pop, folk with an edge, and Euro trash. ("European decadance and Las Vegas trash... zhis iz vat ve vant.")
Favorite food might be Italian. Or Thai. Or Indian. Or Vietnamese. Sushi's good, and how can I give up chow mein or schnitzel? It's easier to delineate the foods I don't like: I don't eat melon or cucumbers, and celery and bell peppers are only acceptable if they have been cooked way down. I've got the genes that make cilantro taste soapy and grapefruit taste like burning tires. I have mixed feelings about mushrooms (but it's hard to say no to morels or chanterelles). I have never met a cuisine I didn't like, although super hot chilies are hard on me (no hot cock sauce for me, thanks).
