About Me

Carping the Diem

'For this world also which seems to us a thing of stone and flower and blood is not a thing at all but it is a tale.And all in it is a tale and each tale the sum of lesser tales and yet these also are the selfsame tale and contain as well all else within them.' -Cormac McCarthy [The Crossing]

I am a semi-professional nosey person, studying towards my PhD in Anthropology while scrapping together pocket money with all sorts of weird and wonderful research and art related work.I currently study native american horse cultures, though I've recently done a load of research on yoga for my masters, so I'm a horsey, metal, academic art scene yoga type coffee addict, but definitely not cool enough to be a hipster

I had a cs site that I shared with my ex, then we were both to busy to host, and now neither of of us can remember what email or password it was and can't get on it. which is very sad because we have loads of references! see this link for our old page - http://www.couchsurfing.org/profile.html?id=865SCYA&from_search&search_ranking_hosts=1

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I have been surfer and host (so I know how to be a good guest as well) for almo 6 years. Mostly hosted for years, and now mostly surfing due to lack of hosting facilities and lots of research related traveling.

I've hosted over 40 people over 3 years in my old house, have also surfed all around Europe and in India. Couchsurfing rocks my world. People can be lovely really, despite what we see on the news.


EVERYTHING. can talk all day about: Traveling Anthropology/Sociology Films HORSES \m/METAL\m/ Yoga Cooking books-most of them

Music, Movies & Books

YES PLEASE - (anything free..)

Live GIGS!! over anything else. I love plays but never get to them as that requires money.

Interested in most things, my current favourite music is Cascadian Post-Metal, but like most metal/gothy stuff,acoustic (Damian rice/ Nick Drake, etc.) some classical (Wagner especially), and have a soft spot of banjos. Not really into chart music, but clashing music tastes is hardly a deal breaker.

Movies - dont really watch alot - though getting into some tv shows for the first time ever - homeland, girls, Game of Thrones, downton as a guilty pleasure, etc.

Books: Currently reading lots of Steampunk sorta stuff - China Meiville.I've been reading alot of historical fiction of late.I'll read almost anything at a push, and can't handle being bookless for more then a day or so.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Rode horses through the mountains to return to a friends tribal ancestral homeland. 14 hours in the saddle on one of those days.

Teach, Learn, Share

TEACH: Anything you ever probably didnt want to know about Native American Horse Culture. Traveling tips for america and most of europe? Cake recipes?

Learn:I would love to learn a bit about your lives and/or towns. Or any new baked goods....these candain girls taught me this amazing peanut butter ball recipe and I've been making them ever since.
