You know that scene from Velvet Goldmine where Arthur jumps up and down and points to the television yelling "That's me! That's me!". I SO get that.

Because woah. I never knew there was an actual word for it. :D :D

From unwords.com, lifted verbatim from caersmane's LJ:

Definition of sapiosexuality :

(sā-pē-ō-sĕk-shü-ăl'ĭ-tē)

1. (n.) A behavior of becoming attracted to or aroused by intelligence and its use.

Origins: From the Latin root sapien, wise or intelligent, and Latin sexualis, relating to the sexes.

Example: Me? I don't care too much about the looks. I want an incisive, inquisitive, insightful, irreverent mind. I want someone for whom philosophical discussion is foreplay. I want someone who sometimes makes me go ouch due to their wit and evil sense of humor. I want someone that I can reach out and touch randomly. I want someone I can cuddle with. I decided this all means that I am sapiosexual.


Next time someone asks what my 'type' is (*looks pointedly at peacey*), I'll can tell them in less than the usual forty paragraphs. w00t!

In other news, I want to make this.

Nope. I found it on this geek knitting site. There's lots of cool things there.

Also, here. Have some Roy Zimmerman:

Awesome... I need to add this word to my vocabulary. Looks definitely aren't as important as someone's intelligence. Being smart is just... hot. =)

The word needs to be submitted to Oxford or Merriam-Webster or somebody.

*jumps up and down pointing at computer screen* THAT'S ME! THAT'S ME!

Wow, okay, I didn't know that word, but now I do, and like you, OMG I resemble that vocabulary word. Thank you for the insight!

Seriously. Pretty much all my crushes, RL or fictional or stratospheric, have been on people who use their brain a lot. My platonic!Fake!boyfriend is included in this group, because while I'm not attracted to him physically, I kind of want to make out with his mind.

Speaking of which (whom?), have you seen this?:

I have seen that one! He's such a great interview. "Think of a monster." :D Yes, I agree, SK is the perfect example of how my sapiosexuality manifests itself!

He doesn't quite fit the definition for me because I don't have any sexual attraction to him, which I think is part of the criteria. But still. I have an eternal crush on his brain.

Also? George Stroumboulopoulos (whose name I have to Google, cut, and paste every. single. time. because I can't spell it) is one of the best interviewers ever. He makes every guest feel like they're sitting around shooting the breeze in their own living room.

If I could knit, I would totally make that scarf. In many eye popping colours. *grabby hands*

I'm gonna see about getting me some yarn tomorrow. Maybe I should make a poll about which colour to get.
