So maybe I’m not sapiosexual after all…
The other day, I stumbled upon a neologism that whacked me in the side of my proverbial robot head: sapiosexuality.
As the jpeg above notes, saposexualism is described as an attraction to intelligence, first and foremost — over all other things.
It’s not an official sexual preference (is there even such thing?), but it did speak to me. I’ve always been into smart / funny / talented guys and vocally, adamantly so.
Sure, many of my boyfriends have been attractive (whaddup Sean Walsh supermodel) but I’d far sooner date a brilliant guy who isn’t traditionally attractive than a dull-ass smokeshow. Trust — the latter is intolerable after like, 2 weeks.
Coincidentally, I decided to kick off my week of vacation this week by watching Game of Thrones. THE ENTIRE SERIES.
After two and some odd full days of staring at Kahl Drogo and Robb Stark and Jon Snow I’ve come to the conclusion that intelligence might not be the primary thing I’m attracted to after all…
I mean, if I were truly sapiosexual wouldn’t I be most attracted to the oh-so-clever Tyrion Lannister?
I love him and want him to be my best friend forever, but I don’t necessarily want him…
Emmy award winning actor, animal rights activist and presumable super rich guy Peter Dinklage, on the other hand… I’d date him if I were single, because he could introduce me to Kit Harrington and Richard Madden
I finished season 2 of the show last night, hence my emo face above and the way I’ve been curtsying around meatspace addressing everyone as M’Lord and M’Lady.
Mom: “Lauren, it’s time to wake up.”Me: “I AM LADY LAUREN ELIZABETH OF THE HOUSE O’NEIL AND I WAKE FOR NO ONE!!!!”Mom: Wut

You can expect another lulzy post binge-series watching Storify of GOT parodies and fan art soon. It will be massive.
But alas, it’s Thanksgiving in Canada today, my friends, and I have a few things I’d like to give thanks for on m’blog.
The humans in my life are a given, and for fear of leaving any one human out and making them feel sad I’m not going to mention any.
1. My IFE:
2. Math humour:
3. My job. Everything about it.
4. Groundskeeper Willie:
5. fact that I really enjoy working out and eating healthy things – more specifically, the way these habits make me feel and look.
6. This video of dog stroller races:
7. The ridiculous beat:
8. Where I live (minus the construction and yuppies outside.)
9. Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Facebook (yes, even Facebook) and the funny people who make all of these platforms worth being obsessed with.
10. Satellite Radio:
11. That I live in the best part of the best city that I’ve ever known in Canada!!!
