Some people really don't seem to get my sense of humour, which isn't hugely surprising as it's often kinda strange and random. I'm shy, and sometimes a bit withdrawn, but I care about people a lot, and try to help others when I can. I also tend to open up and let my guard down more the more I get to know a person. Despite being very into science, I'm not dismissive of the idea of things science so far cannot explain, such as things referred to as "the supernatural", in fact I've had some really weird "inexplicable" things happen in my life that I can't just dismiss. I have a mild phobia of cathode ray tubes, because of an old TV half-electrocuting me when I was 12, and I'm terrified of wasps, because they're evil little flying harbingers of doom and stingy pain.
I don't believe in a lot of the crap that a significant proportion of society seems to adhere to, such as my appearance being judged by how much I'm dressing in the latest fashions, or the silly idea that girls should be anorexically thin to be attractive - curves are hot! Traits I find attractive in other people are intelligence, an open mind and willingness to think for themselves, honesty, and a caring, compassionate nature. Geekiness earns you extra points! Alternative ways of earning extra points include making me cups of tea :)
I am shy, geeky, and caring
Movies: Certain anime, The Matrix(eses), Pleasantville, Dark City, Bound, But I'm a Cheerleader, Finding Nemo (because it's so *cute*!!), Fantasia... I have a wide variety of tastes really.
TV: Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica (the new one), The Bill, Eastenders, Neighbours, and Being Human.
Music: The Orb, Boards of Canada, Talking Heads, Banco de Gaia, Massive Attack, REM, Sneaker Pimps, Future Sound of London, Jean Michel Jarre, Ladytron, UNKLE... a lot of ambient or electronica music in general... Though I can like a wide, eclectic range of stuff, just not hideous mass manufactured pop crap that lacks any actual creativity.
Food: Many things, from sushi to kebabs. I love spicy foods, too. Avacadoes are yummy, and as long as I'm in the right mood for it I love chocolate. My favourite alcoholic drinks are baileys in hot chocolate, and peach schnapps with grapefruit juice.
* Music, I'm mildly synaesthetic meaning I literally see sound, which makes music very cool (and also able to affect my emotional state a lot at times)
* My friends
* My vast collection of fairy lights which light up my bedroom
* My vast collection of stuffed animals that live in my bed
* Here's a clue: Hot caffeinated beverage, 3 letters... :P
