About me

Disclaimer: Please don't waste your time sending us boring copy-and-paste messages with links to hidden Couchsurfing profiles. We won't reply to those. Thank you! ♥ ♥ ♥

Our schedule is tight (and a bit weird), so please don't blame your karma if we do not accept your friendly request. :)

Personal description:
Mostly harmless. Agnostic, pacifist, humanist, hedonist. Decadent and depraved. Easily bored, yet easily intrigued: Praise the internet for giving us cat videos!!

I really believe in the benefits of an open society, in personal freedom and the power of diversity, and I'm highly tolerant about cultural identity, beliefs, sexual orientation, and your favorite chocolate brand. Any kind of violence, prejudice, discrimination and intolerance make me sick. Be warned! :)

PS: Because I disagreed to their new terms of (ab)use, I left Couchsurfing on September 13th, 2012 by deleting my profile with 33 friends, 27 references, and 8 vouches. So long, and thanks for all the copy-and-paste requests!

Bonus: Dancing Chicken!
