The short of it: I'm a kinky Pagan hypnotist who doesn't take herself too seriously. But beware. I tend to have a warping influence on people... I happen to think that's a *good* thing, mind you. "Normal" is about the worst insult I know.
I am weird, addictive, and subversive
I've been a derby girl for over two years now, and playing Roller Derby rocks! If you don't know about Roller Derby... well, it's a bunch of girls in classic quad skates, short skirts and fishnet stockings who roll around a track looking sexy as hell... and then we try to kill each other ! ;)
I sing and play mandolin, mostly folk music and weird funny songs. I'm not very good, but I enjoy it a lot. And I'm learning to play hurdy gurdy. It's a totally cool medieval instrument that's basically a violin with drones. One hand plays it with a keyboard while the other turns a crank. It sounds kind of like bagpipes. I also play a bit of bodhran and tinwhistle.
I've also re-started martial arts practice. All I can say is I am not practicing ninjutsu. If I were, I would be a ninja, and clearly, a ninja would never reveal they are a ninja. Thus I am not a ninja.
HOBBIES: only some of which I practice at any given time -- belly dancing, martial arts, drawing, Irish tin whistle playing, drumming, mandolin playing, singing, chanting, divination, computer games, role playing games, massage, dancing, flirting, cult leader, magic, movie going, smithing, seith, seeing dead people, posing as a perky goth.
TV: Star Trek, Babylon 5, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Charmed, Stargate SG-1, DarkWing Duck, DynaGirl & ElectraWoman
BOOKS: Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series (Laurel K. Hamilton), One (Richard Bach), The Urban Shaman, Real Magic (Isaac Bonewits)
AUTHORS: Laurel K Hamilton, Mercedes Lackey, Roger Zelazny, Jack L Chalker, Simon R Green, Richard Bandler (NLP), The Prose Edda (Norse mythology), Diane Duane
ACTORS: I like Jim Carrey. He's an avatar of Loki :)
I favor urban fantasy books, movies with an occult theme, I like fantasy (magic!), sci-fi, horror, adventure, comedy. I prefer dramas in a sci-fi or fantasy setting. There's enough real drama in the six o'clock news.
MUSIC: Pop, gothic rock, Irish folk, almost anything with a good beat. I like happy bouncy music that makes you want to tap your foot or snap your fingers, dark wailing songs about the undead, and Pagan filk songs. I sing and play mandolin.
MUSICIANS: Lacuna Coil, Pink, Eminem, Aqua, Medieval Babes, Weird Al Yankovic, Great Big Sea, the recent Britney Spears, Lords of Acid. And a bunch more I don't actually own CDs of...
FOODS: I like variety. Buffets are great. Indian & sushi are some favorites. Food that other people cook. I'm very good at making breakfast, not so good with the rest. I'm a strict yummytarian. If it's yummy, I'll eat it :)
And yes... for some people, I do have a more submissive side ;)
Traits I value: Intellectual, intelligent (they're not the same thing), weird, considerate, funny, adventurous, and especially cuddly and sensual. In the Montreal area. I'm interested in LOCAL people only. I need hugs. Hugs don't work over email.
I'd also say good looking, but really, whether you look good to me has to be judged case by case... though in general, I like long hair, and dislike buzz cuts.
I'm also interested in making more friends in general who have similar interests and weird worldviews. I like to play weird card games such as Ninja Burger :)
If you want something to say for your first email, you can tell me about some of the books you've read in the past year. Whether they're fiction or not, the fact that you read tells me we've got similar values. I like people who are passionate about something. That often means geeks of some type, which is fine. I speak geek fluently. ;)
Finally, if you've read through all this and you want to hang out with me or get into bed with me, let me give you my rating scale for new friends and lovers. This way, you'll know right from the start what your chances are:
--------------- Dating & Friendship Scale ----------------
-1)GET LOST: Horny guy who wants to find someone for sex more than anything else
0) ZERO: Incomplete profile, or very brief profile. Make the effort to fill it out, or don't waste my time.
1) LOW: Honestly nice guy/gal, with normal interests, like going drinking, watching football, doing crosswords, playing solitaire or video games.
2) MODERATE: Has a variety of interests, likes new things, and has at least one unusual passion or skill (Buffy the vampire slayer fan, Zombie movie fan, Pagan, Medievalist, martial artist, folk singer, musician, fandom geek, Role Player, comics artist, Roller Derby, etc.)
3) HIGH: Major weirdo of some sort, with many unusual passions or skills (see above). You talk to spirits, or maybe you see dead people. Goth. You're still sore from your last alien abduction. Pyramid energy builder. Superhero. Shaman King / Queen. Pagan, Heathen, Witch, Druid, Spiritualist... alternative spirituality is a super big bonus.
FIRST DATE/MEETING: Try to pick something unusual. It's be nice if it was something where we had a chance to talk. Food and movie is okay, but some fun activity we can do together is better.
