About Me

Evidently I find it easier to think in lists than prose...

Tribal bellydancer, living statue, theatre geek, model, teacher, costumer, tabletop gamer, LARPer

PHILOSOPHY

"When I was five years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down 'happy'. They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life." ~John Lennon

"Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place." ~Kurt Vonnegut

"Carelessness in dressing is moral suicide" ~Balzac

What I Can Share With Hosts

Please be aware that I have one (1) fiance and two (2) cats, so all Couchsurfing requests have to be vetted by them as well as by me. We're both very busy and often out of town, so overnight requests are dubious at best.

LGBT-friendly, safe atmosphere. We use a lot of foul language but we're ridiculously socially liberal.

Feminine or genderqueer folk preferred; despite what I'm sure are the best of intentions, I get a LOT of requests from straight men on this site and almost none from women and it's starting to look a bit fishy.

Countries I've Visited

Australia, Bahamas, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Poland, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In

United Kingdom, United States
