Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a fan of things, like most people. Things with words on and
things that make sounds. Sometimes things that make the sounds of
Apparently some people like to exchange complex thoughts through
the medium of text and with the help of electricity. Hopefully some
of those people will see this and respond but who knows.
If the above paragraphs haven't given it away I am a bit of a dick.
But in an amusing and endearing way. I would say that though
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working and sleeping for the most part. But apparently that's how
it works. Any fresher ideas let me know.
I recently started working in east London which is... interesting.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Using many words to say basically nothing at all. See above.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My face? Or possibly my tendency to match my tie to my socks.
Inspired by John Snow of Channel 4 fame.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I'm hesitant to just list a bunch of stuff. I read quite a lot by
normal people's standards. I read that a heavy reader in the UK
only reads 4 books a year which is disgusting. I'm always reading
at least two.
I generally enjoy - is enjoy the right word? - dystopian fiction.
So Brave New World, obviously. Nineteen Eighty Four, The Road etc.
Song of Ice and Fire was totally something else.
I also ready a lot of non fiction around the social sciences:
politics, philosophy, evolutionary theory. Also trying to get a
handle on economics. So far I'm convinced no one has a clue about
anything. Or something.
I studied film at uni so I have quite a healthy appetite for
movies. I will resist listing them as we will no doubt have a bunch
in common 'cause who on earth doesn't watch movies?
TV is also pretty not bad. The Wire, South Park, Mad Men and Lost
are in my opinion some of the best. I'm currently blizing my way
through West Wing at an inhuman rate. Can't believe I left it so
Food is pretty good, too. Apparently comes under the same heading
as TV etc. I try to eat as healthily as possible but try is
definitely the operative word.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This is hard, considering how I have already told you how much I
like things. I guess we'll dispense with the pedantic necessity to
be literal about these things.
Laptop connected to the Internet
A good book or my kindle
24 hour news (unless this is covered by point 1?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Stuff and that. Oh, and my plan for world domination. Watch this
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
What is a typical Friday? I like to go for a few beers. I'm passed
the point where I really enjoy getting wasted so either a few
drinks with friends, movies and takeaway or something similar is
