woah

Dudes.

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.
