I like databases, walking, Tai Chi, thai food, xkcd, tesla coils, hamsters, talking nonsense in the pub, having enthusiastic and philosophical discussions about the human condition (see previous item), science fiction, and boardgaming. And other stuff, some of which I probably don't know about yet.
I have a hamster - the cat likes to watch it, luckily it likes to be watched by the cat. It's perhaps an unhealthy relationship, but it seems to make them all happy. The hamster doesn't like me, though.
By night she cooks, goes to the cinema, reads, draws, and plays viola badly. Sometimes there is Geek Pub or Book Club, or people come for dinner and DVDs.
And at weekends, she travels to London, goes to art galleries, visits friends, does boardgaming, has a nice cuppa tea, and never quite gets round to making the theremin.
Married for ten years, divorced for five, finding that the new people I meet through friends and work are mostly couples.
Movies: Last seen: The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Thirty-Nine Steps, The Lego Movie (awesome!), Oldboy, Dallas Buyers Club, Her. Love Brazil, Moon, Inception, Some Like It Hot. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead Good, so is the Cambridge Film Festival.
Television: Futurama, Battlestar Galactica, The Wire, Firefly. More Futurama. Arrested Development. More films than tv, usually.
Music: Recent gigs: John Cooper Clarke; The Tyburn Tree (Marc Almond/John Harle); Of Montreal; Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip. Like to dance but don't do it often. Only barely play viola. Am better at recorder.
Food: I like dark chocolate, fruit, Chinese, Japanese and Mexican food. I eat meat but I love vegetables. I read somewhere that after the age of 30, every new foodstuff you eat adds a year to your life - I should reach at least 110 :-) I like inventive baking. There are only two things I can't eat - gluten and dairy - but one can work around that and it's a good incentive to improve one's cooking...
Regular face time with friends, to nourish the soul;
Word play and intellectual challenge, to tickle the brain;
Art, to tickle the other bits of the brain;
Chocolate. Hamsters. Chocolate hamsters? Bakelite hamsters!
I'm outward-looking and inquisitive, I notice things around me and wonder how they fit together. I think about how people work, what is important to them, how they can be happy. I think about words, all the things you can do with them, and it is fun to construct crossword clues in my head.
And sometimes I play Gandalf/Balrog with the cat.
Oh, and I have a scar from when I ran with scissors.
If you want to meet up for a cinema trip. I love the movies! Also art galleries.
You have a bakelite hamster.
