My self-summary
"I really hate writing these things, they always sound so false" is such a killer of an opening line that is now no longer relevant, so I shall refrain from using it as such. Hang on a moment...

I'm an unusual niche sort of person really. My labels are varied and many, that even the eccentrics fear I'm too 'different'.

I'm a Bisexual, Polyamorous, Clockwork-Romantic Steampunk, Omnivorous, General Purpose Pagan with Druidic leanings adopting an Ancient Greco-Roman flavour, Kinkster - Switch, hobbying Botanist, Naturist, fair-weather Cyclist, Bookworm, board & card gaming Geek, full-time Satyr.

Hmmm, that'll do for the moment...
What I’m doing with my life
Working, far too much, at the Garden Centre, but thoroughly enjoying it all the same.

That and often getting involved with one of many local community groups, social groups or meet ups.

When not doing any of those, I'm chasing around the UK throughout the year attending BiFests, Big Bi Fun Day, and the long-weekend annual event of BiCon. And I help out with Bisexuality Visibility Day/Bi-Pride on the 23rd September back here in Brighton. I often also use these events, and other holidays, to be with my long distance partner.

All in all, generally keeping my days full and myself busy.
I’m really good at
I'm a rather out of practice fencer, with particular favouritism towards the Sabre.

I'm told I'm rather good at drawing, though my muse has gone on holiday of late.

I love gardening, and this is something I definitely AM good at. Have won awards don't you know. My flat IS full of plants.

I practice the Tarot, and have been told by those I've read for that I'm a good reader.

I'm also a fairly good swimmer. Love swimming whenever I give myself the opportunity.

And sewing/tailoring, I'm a bit of a dab hand with my ol' sewing machine and a thread.
The first things people usually notice about me
The Horns, if I'm wearing them that is, and sometimes even if I'm not. Many have said they suit me...

Or the Sabre-Brolly, people seem to notice that a lot.

In summer, people often notice the lack of clothes about me. In autumn-winter-spring, people notice my formal-casual, dressing up to dress down, "steampunk", style I adopt.

I don't drink. Alcohol that is. Actually, this is something some people often forget to take note of. Not that I'm complaining, I guess it is an unusual thing to see someone who's tee-total happily going to a pub.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a right bookworm. I tend to prefer sci-fi and fantasy as a rule, more so the sorts where swords 'n' sorcery meets 20th/21st Century modern world; "Urban Fantasy" I believe the young people call it these days.

On review, I've decided to condense the Favourite Books bit to Favourite Authors. So...

- Simon R. Green (I'm a total fan-boy)
- John Wyndham (I'm again a total fan-boy)
- Mark Chadbourn
- George R. R. Martin
- Roger Zelazny - particularly his Chronicles of Amber, amongst others.
- Harry Harrisons - particularly his Stainless Steel Rat books.
- H.G.Wells - been reading a lot more of his stuff lately.

I also enjoyed the various Trillium books; Black Trillium, Blood Trillium, Sky Trillium and Lady of the Trillium. Finally tracked down and reading a copy of Golden Trillium.

Childhoood favorates include:
- Brian Jaques' Redwall stories.
- I also used to collect The Ancestral trail
- Dick-King-Smith's Martin's Mice and Magnus Powermouse (I was always more of a rodent over a cat or dog person).
- I also used to read what ever Tom 'n' Jerry Comics and annuals I could get my grubby little hands on.

I read a lot of gardening and horticultural related books. And I have a small library of new-age pagan type reference literature.

I used to read/collect a lot of Manga

I collect and read translations of the original Ancient Greek plays and tragedies, like Homer's The Iliad and The Odyssey.

As for movies, I tend to enjoy the good old creature features, things like Them and Day of the Triffids, Day the Earth Stood Still, War of the Worlds, Fiend Without a Face, Village of the Damned, The Time Machine, When World's Collide.
Have seen (and own) most anything that Ray Harryhausen has done the SFX for.
I also love the proper ToHo Godzilla movies. I unashamedly own copies of most of them on DVD.
I'm also a big fan of the Monty Python movies, and the Pythons in general.
I also like Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, Mirrormask, Witches of Eastwick, Little Shop of Horrors (carnivorous plants again...), Naked Gun trilogy, Gremlins 1 and 2, the Critters movies, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, The Princess Bride, Stardust.

TV? Well, and I know this is used a lot on these sorts of sites, but, I don't watch much tele. This is because I have no license and have no connection to a receiving areal anyway.
However, when I did watch tele (or download or purchase via DVD), I enjoyed things like Primeval (and yes, I have the four novellas that partner the series), Monty Python's Flying Circus and nature documentaries (especially those by Sir David Attenborough.

I also enjoy Radio.
Yes, I did type that right; RADIO (something that tends to get neglected on these sights).
I regularly tune into Radio 4 and catch up with things like I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue, Just A Minute, The News Quiz, The Now Show and similar intelligent, satirical or just silly things like.

Musically, I am rather eclectic (sorry, I know this word is so over used). I like most things from Enya through to Red Hot Chili Peppers through to Dance through to New Age through to No Doubt through to K.T.Tunstall through to Keane through to Shakira through to Delta Goodram through to Jean Michelle Jarre through to Arcade Fire through to Graffiti6.

Food wise, anything with sugar and e-numbers is generally good.
I'm something of an Om-nom-nom-nivore. I am the total antithesis of veganism. I will happily eat meat and eggs and milk and honey. Hhhmmm, bacon & pancakes...
The six things I could never do without
1. Milk. Especially Gold top. I am such a lactose junkie.
2. Sex. I really am something of a satyr at heart.
3. Plants. Some would say too many house plants; I'd say never enough.
4. Tea. Where would we be without a good cuppa?
5. My books. I'm something of a bibliophile.
6. My diary. (There, I've done it, a sixth thing!) I'd honestly be lost with out it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Stuff; Naughty things; Trying to decide what new adventures to get up to today will be; My plants and what new plants I wish to purchase and grow; My long term plan to breed my very own Triffids; How much 'my I-pod' is a deal breaker when someone else puts that as one of their things they couldn't do without (instant disinterest from me); What I'm next going to write/edit in one of these profile box type things; My long distance partner;
On a typical Friday night I am
Let me check my diary...

Usually I'm crashing out after a hard day (well week really) at work and successive evenings of socialising, catching up on much needed down time.

Otherwise, if not a late shift at work, voluntary work, gardening, spending time with one of my significant others, or playing geeky board/card games with my mates, then I'm generally open to suggestions.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Is so private I wont even admit it to Myself, for fear that I might let slip and tell someone else, like Me. And then I would also find this out, and I would go out there and tell Myself all about My most private thing that had been discovered about Me. And then I would probably find myself betrayed yet further still as I post it on-line somewhere, like this very site, and broadcast it for all the world and One to see. So the most private thing remains private to Me, and I shall never reveal it to anyone, not even to my self.
You should message me if understood the (most private thing I'm willing to admit) above paragraph.

You're better at making the first move than I am. I'm positively terrible at it.

You're local; or at the very least willing to visit Brighton (the one in East Sussex, United Kingdom); or also regularly attend some of the various British Bi events that I mentioned above.

***You liked me on the quickmatch. Please message me to let me know it was you or else I'll never find out.***

!!!You honestly think I shouldn't delete this profile!!!
