Profile Me


Melinda

Danae would like to know:

What is your first name?
Melinda

Are you Male/Female/Other?
Lady

What is your age?
26

How would you describe your complexion?
Very pale.  Too pale for Australia.

How would you describe your facial features?
Eyes: Dark blue and large, especially with eyeliner that is often worn.
Eyebrows: Moderate width, dark – not too bushy, not overly thin. Just your average eyebrows, hanging out above the eyes, protecting from falling debris and whatnot.
Ears: Pierced, moderate size, usually covered by hair.
Nose: Could be described as a typical Semitic nose, but in miniature – my Grandmother was Jewish and I inherited her nose, but rather than being a large and dominating nose like many a Jewish nose can be, mine is the same shape but much smaller.
Jawline: Square, I think. Not mannish exactly, but heading that way.
Mouth/lips: My lips are pretty great. They are full and large and delightfully pink, although often covered in red or orange lipstick.
Hairline: I have a low hairline and tiny forehead, so I compensate with a fringe that gives my face the appearance of a normal sized forehead.
Hair colour: Dark brown with a reddish tint in direct sunlight.
Hair style: Fairly long (bra strap length) and fringed, my hair is wavy not curly and generally free flowing because I’m not very good at styling it. I can do the messy bun, but I’m not looking forward to when this stops being fashionable because it’s my only trick.
Face shape: Round I think, or square – or somewhere in the middle.  =Round face with squarish jaw? Does that make sense? 

Any other notes on your appearance:
I am chubby – not particularly fat, but definitely not thin. I broke my ankle last year and it took two surgeries to fix, so I walk with a limp when it rains and I have an impressive scar on my ankle, and that is when I got a little round. But I can walk properly almost all the time now, and I ride my bike everywhere so the roundness is slowly fading away.

Describe at least three activities you most enjoy doing:
I love to knit for my friends when I’m alone, I love to dance with my friends when I’m not alone and I love to read aloud or quietly depending on whether or not I am alone.

Describe your favourite outfit:
Full, yellow pleated skirt a little like the one’s all the girls wore in Grease, cropped loose fitting t-shirt with mutli-coloured vaguely horizontal lines pattern that is somehow vaguely reminiscent of a particularly wonderful sunset on a beach, men’s brogues with frilly socks and a blue headband.

Describe your facial expression when you are concentrating:
Tongue slightly poking to the right, eyebrows frowning and lips slightly pouting.
