What I’m doing with my life
Now that's a tough one. Trying to find a way to make a living with
the things I like to do. Did try the consulting thing for a bit,
but although the money was good, the work was far from gratifying.
So now back to my old career. Which isn't half bad, seeing as I get
to split it between a part where I work at the highest level
possible and a part where I get to develop my own business. A bit

If you want to see the list: ask me for my Goodreads account.
Food: Anything goes, but when it comes to meat preferably something
that has had a nice life and a quick end to it
Note: very best series ever is Jim Henson's The Storyteller.

Food in my belly
... ooooh, you mean things I really like. Nothing specific really.
"Home is where I hang my hat" and all that jazz.
Do a lot of stuff (ballroom dancing, cycling, field-hockey,
hunting) but am not a fundamentalist about any of them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Anything that comes to mind... No really, everything!
On a typical Friday night I am
Either reading a book, working, watching a movie or out with
Really, there's no such thing as a typical Friday night. I'd go mad
if there was.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nothing at the moment. Let me dwell on it...
You should message me if
you are an interesting person (and confident enough to admit it)
and openminded to boot (luckily those two things usually go hand in
It always helps if you love to read (and hope to see lots of
interesting books when you enter a new house), have an active
imagination and/or consider yourself a bit of a nerd with some
I recently found out this is called 'sapiosexuality'.
