I'm pretty busy, and not terribly well-organised. The only way I get anything done is by writing everything down on a sexy, sexy whiteboard. If you have a sexy, sexy whiteboard, you might be my sort of weirdo.
Ideas are pretty important to me. Discourse matters. I want my beliefs and opinions challenged, and if I respect you I'll certainly challenge yours.
(I was once trading messages with someone on OKCupid, and she made some throwaway theological point I didn't agree with. I responded with a thousand-word counterargument. She didn't respond, and this was probably for the best. I was not her sort of weirdo.)
I like games.
I'm studying towards an economics and maths degree in my spare time, with an eye to doing a Masters when I graduate. The long-term plan is to make scarily smart machines that know exactly what you want.
In my other spare time (what's left of it), I swing-dance. Lindy hop, Balboa, Blues and vernacular jazz, mostly. By the standards of most observers I'm pretty good, but by the arcane standards of other swing dancers I'm just sort of alright.
Things I no longer have any spare time for include drawing, playing the piano, circus skills (mostly juggling), and an assortment of other hobbies that have fallen by the wayside over the years.
Here are the films I gave ten stars on IMDb: Django Unchained, Warm Bodies, The Cabin in the Woods, Inglorious Basterds, 500 Days of Summer, 50/50, Amelie, The Adventures of Tintin, Groundhog Day, Kick-Ass and The Hunt for Red October.
My ideal film appears to be an offbeat supernatural romantic comedy with extreme, stylised violence. Preferably set on a submarine during the Cold War.
I quite like how in recent years, saying "I don't really watch TV" has stopped sounding pretentious, and started sounding like a sensible reaction to how much crap there is on TV. There's plenty of stuff I'd like to watch, but all the good TV shows seem to involve a lot of time investment. When I inevitably end up in a horrible accident and need to spend six months in traction, that's when I'll watch Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad.
