Nov. 14th, 2008



Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand

Name: Gina
Age: Twenty One
Gender: Female
General Location: Don Mills/Eglinton
Occupation: I'm a student at the University of Toronto (St. George) Studying...stuff. English and either Psychology or Biology (I've yet to decide).
Smoker? Cigarettes and I are like two people in an abusive, yet codependent relationship. No matter how much we fight, no matter how much we hurt one another, we just can't seem to stay away from each other for too long. That being said our on again off again romance is currently off due to lack of funds.

However, to quote Dennis Leary "I love to smoke."

Drinker? Yes, though I limit it to Vodka and mixed drinks with Vodka in them, and Hard Cider.
General Style: Whatever I can afford, is warm, and comfortable. I can't afford to be picky with my wardrobe, and since I'm not a big fan of my body/appearance I usually opt for nondescript camouflage.

Likes: Reading (anything really except historical fiction and harlequin novels), A very few select TV shows (though none of them are on the air anymore - BTVS, Angel, Firefly, Stargate, Farscape). Politics. Drinking when its cold out then running out in to the chilled air and feeling more of a high for it. Scalding Hot Showers. Lukewarm Coffee. Going for coffee at a 24/hr place and chatting until all hours of the night just because. Speaking Spanish in front of people who don't understand what I'm saying, looking over at them with shifty eyes, and then going back to my conversation to see if they're a little wigged out. Geeking it Up. Dancing not to look "hot" but just to move, to breathe, to exhaust my muscles while too loud music makes my bones nearly shake. Bright hair. Facial Piercings. I like a lot of things, you should ask me instead, so we can be friends, thus the point of this community.

Dislikes: ...Do we have all day? I can't make a list. It would require the epic LJ-cut and about 4 hours of my time to type out. Instead I'll just say that I am a liberal, a would be activist (if I wasn't so shy), a lover of literature, good movies (Though I must say obscure films and art films rarely amuse me). I hate when people preach "tolerance" over acceptance. Tolerance to me is gritting your teeth and ignoring something until it goes away. That's not good for anyone, it just to me seems to be pushing passive aggressive hate instead of outward hate. I'm shy, which is why I need the community to make friends, and being the center of attention makes me intensely uncomfortable. My pet peeves include: tapping pens on desks, misuse of vocabulary (though I'm occasionally guilty of this), people chewing with their mouths open, and people who take up more space on the TTC than they really need just because they don't want to have to sit next to somebody.

Hobbies/Passtimes: Playing Piano, Reading, Writing (like everyone, though I keep most of what I write to myself as I'm fairly certain like most twenty-something would be writers it's mostly self indulgent crap), Going for walks at really strange hours (you can see the most interesting things at 4 am), Watching completed TV shows on DVD so I never have to wait TOO long for the ending, LARPING (it's like D&D, only you put on costumes, go camping for the weekend, and then hit people with foam weapons and act like your persona all weekend - this is usually done once a month). Sewing. Procrastinating.

Fave Places to Go or Do/Hang Outs: My favorite place in the world is a beach called Isla Verde in San Juan PR because I spent most of my best days as a kid there. Now, here in Toronto I love the ROM, the Zoo, Robarts Library, Queen Street, New Gen Sushi, the Science Center, certain spots of Whitby, any coffee shop with my friends in it.

Talents: Playing Piano. Being off putting with my sarcasm/shyness. Looking like a huge dork due to my klutzyness. Always knowing where my boyfriend's keys are.

Fave Foods: Tostones, Schwarma, Butter Chicken, Pogo's, and my mom's Rice and Beans.

Fave Movies: Fight Club, The Princess Bride, The Tenth Kingdom, Crime and Punishment in Suburbia, Weirdsville, Be Kind, Rewind.
Fave Books: Entirely too many, even my favorite authors change depending on my mood. Right now I'm on a big Francesca Lia Block kick again, my favorite of HERS being Witch Baby. Some of my favorites right now? 1984 (like everyone ever), Rant, The Abarat series by Clive Barker, The Life Of Pi, White Teeth, and Autobiography of Red. Anything by Kurt Vonnegut, ever.

Fave TV Shows: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, Stargate, Farscape, How I Met Your Mother. The Henry Rollins Show.

Anything Else? I moved to Toronto from a small town in New York that boasted being the home of Jello (it's true I used to work in the Jello museum). I have a love of political humor, angry music, and good food. I'm a geek and not sorry for it - I have an overactive imagination and I don't think it's a bad thing. The world is dreary enough without me squishing the child within completely in favor of less embarrassing hobbies.

I'm Polish and Puerto Rican, which is an odd combination. My family life is dysfunctional on its best days, and while I love the culture I come from (I was raised in Puerto Rico for 6 years and never really taught anything about the Polish side of my heritage) I'm fairly removed from it after so many years of not living on the island. This is something I'm trying to remedy, but really not sure how after so many years of living separate from what the rest of my family says my identity should be.

I've been in the city for a year now, and my social awkwardness and skittishness has kept me from really meeting people. A part of me just wants to walk up to interesting looking strangers and strike up a chat, but fear usually keeps me stuck in place so posting in this community is my compromise with myself.

Pic(s): I have brown hair, brown eyes, skin that could use some more sunlight, and an unremarkable wardrobe. I'm every slightly overweight not-unattractive yet not-noteworthy twenty something girl ever. There are no pictures of me recently because I've grown even better at being a camera ninja and see no need to document my shame.

The other explanation for this is that I am a vampire.

(no subject)

I am both older and younger than my chronological years. I am argumentative and passionate about what I believe in, but willing to listen — and even to sometimes change my mind — to those who disagree with me. Innately monogamous, this past week I have been dumped by one woman and have dumped another (they both knew each other; I don't lie about such things). I love Doctor Who and Henry V, The Trailer Park Boys and Battlestar Galactica, Moby Dick and Calvin and Hobbes.

I am working on the second draft of a novel and looking for a job (no, I don't have my life planned out for the next 40 years). I believe in peace, love and brotherhood but am no pacifist; left-wing, but not doctrinaire; a nerd, but not a geek.

My journal ranges from personal exploration to book reviews to political rants to political musings (most of it is public). I drink, smoke and swear. If you're female and your brain intrigues me, I'll probably flirt with you. If your brain intrigues me I'll probably suggest we go out for a pint sooner or later. If I friend you, I'll read your journal (almost) religiously; if I have something to say, I'll say it.

I am looking for new readers, new writers to read and, in the ideal world, people to meet In Life. My info page is fairly detailed and most of my journal is open to the public.

If any of the above caught your attention, check me out. Add me if you think we might ge3t along.

Name: Geoffrey.

Age: 43 — I don't care how old you are. If you interest me, you interest me.
Gender: Er, male.

General Location: Parkdale.

Occupation: Writer, but looking for a job in the IT field or the "executive assistance" arena.
Smoker? (Y or N?) Yeah. Gearing up for another try at quitting.

Drinker? Yes. Definitely.

General Style: Very casual, but can rock a suit when necessary.

Fave Places to Go or Do/Hang Outs: High Park, the Islands, Rhino's, Mezzrow's, Java Hut.

Talents:Writing, cooking, massage, political analysis. I was also a street-musician during my mis-spent youth.

Fave Foods:Chinese, Indian, Italian, Plain. And yes, I can cook them all myself.

Fave Movies:Beseiged; Bigger, Long and Uncut; Bliss; Casablanca; Citizen Kane: Election; Henry V; Jésus de Montréal; Legally Blonde; My Own Private Idaho; Rushmore; 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Fave Books: Catch-22; Dhalgren; Gormenghast; Pride and Prejudice; The Lord of the Rings;

Fave TV Shows:Absolutely Fabulous, Battlestar Galactica, Deadwood, Doctor Who, Fawltey Towers; South Park, The Trailer Park Boys; The Wire.

Anything Else? If your journal is composed mostly of memes and periodic friend-cuts, please look elsewhere. If you're looking for someone with whom to swap ideas, maybe beers and possibly spit, we should talk.

Pic(s):On my profile (you can even see my cat!) and in my journal.
