Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First profile edit in 2 years+...
Here goes, it is 11.06.13 for another 22 minutes,
I've just ticked over to 36 suncycles...
I'm a parent now...which is grand. Her name is Artemis and she's
15mths and a grand adventurer...and a grand adventure.
I'm enjoying getting older, although as a single dad it's
definitely lonely at times. I'm definitely taking a quality over
quantity approach to life, which is quite different to certain
periods...this is best reflected in my consumption of whiskey. Only
laphroaigs for me, maybe a lagavulin every now and then.
The thought that sooner rather than later I'll watch Withnail &
I again makes me happy, the thought that after watching it again
I'll watch it again...
I'm primarily poly, although recently that has had all the
relevance of calling myself a post-scarcity anarcho-syndicalist. I
don't want an exclusive relationship, I do think of my life, work
and parenting as great loves and they sate me, I can't imagine
having time or inclination for more than a single lover but would
still prefer someone who is either poly, or at least not driven by
archaic notions of exclusivity and ownership within personal/sexual
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Not necessarily (but most definitely) in this order:
Hanging out with the most curious little beastie and calling it
Trying to organise my chaotic little existence in the gaps between
artemis and sleep...
Slowly reading 'the greatest show on earth'...and frequently
remembering when I could sit and read in 4 hour blocks and deeply
connect with writers.
Contemplating creative work solutions so as not to ever lose
daughter time to a job...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Relationship advice for others
Talking about words and numbers with smart folks
Explaining how my trivia knowledge doesn't include the pop culture
of the modern pub quiz.
Misinterpreting my own relationship advice
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
are my penchant for story-telling, my enthusiasm for conversation,
a bit of madness and of course my A-grade derriere...
oh...and I'm told my beard. *yawn*

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
why...we wake, we think, we love, we hurt ourselves and others, we
get back up again, we don't try harder, we don't sing louder, we
sing at all.
and how the current crop of politicians don't just wither from the
shame. and and and how the current voting public don't likewise
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
trying to decide between staying at home and having great
conversations online and with family (i.e. housemates) or pushing
out into the wider world and maybe meeting new folks...missing WA
for it's great music scene, totally topping Melbourne's somewhat
more trendy scene.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
