My self-summary
Finding ways of being lost. Orientation in lostness.

Studying undergraduate philosophy part time.
Into deconstruction, Decentering, Derrida and daftness; Phenomenology and funnyness;
Existentialism and excitement;
What I’m doing with my life
See above.

In the summer I work at festivals on the Property Lockups. At Glastonbury I get to do all kinds of exciting stuff, like building furniture, moving around furniture and driving about quite a lot. Though I did get to practice my unicycling in the interstage compound this year. At small festivals I spend most of my time fighting with other people's mobile phones (making sure they charge as quickly as possible [or at all]).

I work part time in the university library.

I'm in a few university societies.

I engage in various religious activities: Catholicism (a little lax at the moment, it's seven miles and I don't like getting up on a Sunday), Daoism (Well mostly Taiji etc, but also engage with the literature and study Chinese culture a bit, not found an active Daoist community as yet), I quite like going to the High Anglican chapel at the university when I'm there and have a strong ecumenical background, getting into Paganism (pretty active in the university Pagan Soc, I'm the Site Guardian at the moment which at the moment means doing extra gardening! [But with added Spirit])

About to walk my dog. Not quite sure where she is at the moment, but it's time for a walk.
I’m really good at
Getting lost and then finding my way.
(A useful practical and theoretical skill.)

Charging phones at festivals. (I suspect it follows from the above statement)
The first things people usually notice about me
I've got lots of earrings in one of my ears. They don't usually notice all the tunnels in the other. It can be a useful distraction, but also a bit of a bore.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Ahhg! I'm scared of the concept of 'favourite'.

But I suppose I can have a go.

Books:
I like action, adventure, thriller, science fiction, fantasy. If really forced to say I'd have to admit to Raymond Chandler and would settle on 'The Big Sleep'

Movies:
Well genres as books with the addition of Chinese martial arts, well most Chinese films then, since taking up Taiji.

Shows:
I'm assuming this means TV shows rather than theatre (I prefer a straight play to one with singing and dancing in it, but can probably manage to sit through one, but I might well feel traumatised if I'm not allowed to talk my way down out of it afterwards). Back to TV. Well I gave up on the stuff a few years ago, but can still be lured into putting Doctor Who on the i-player, though this sometimes takes some doing as I am generally unsympathetic with the new format. Blake's 7 from the late 70s early 80s is my all time favourite, and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (I know it's a radio series really, but TV was my first meeting of it and I tend to go to the books most often.

Food:
I guess Italian or Chinese for going out. Stew probably at home. My attitude tends to be based on what food comes to hand and then I cook it as best I can with some variation from day to day.

Oh damn I forgot Music:
Well. My favourite is going to little gigs the smaller the better. It doesn't really matter what 'mode' is being performed. Pub gigs are great, but if I can get a friend to play what ever it is they are just working on for just me, that really is the best.
The six things I could never do without
Breath (get the Daoist reference there, I didn't mention I got into a bit of Zen lately.

Solitude and togetherness (I like to come to others and go off on my own, to be apart and to be community)

Movement (A sense of becoming)

Warmth (Love, it moves us all to each other and our selves, whatever they may be told as)

Stories (Those told and telling, my telling others' telling and the re-telling)

Presence (Buddhist again, but also important in Phenomenology, Existentialism, and Deconstruction) (Absence kinda sneaks in and would go without saying if it wasn't spotted hiding in the corner.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Thinking as done by the so called professional and non-.
I'm quite a fan of not-thinking too and often go to great lengths to not think.
On a typical Friday night I am
At the pub or sitting in reading or watching a film on the projector sometimes while going through my Taiji workout or messing with juggling/martial arts toys.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm lost and lonely and might not be able to find my way alone.

Oh dear that sounds a bit to telling.

Um I've got a bit of an obsession with jackets and gloves. I think it might be from trying to emulate Avon in Blake's 7 in school playtime. These things stay with you. (There that's more suitable)
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 28–43
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating
You should message me if
You don't hate philosophy, you do, but would like to talk about it. (There does seem to be some patristic bias which is perhaps inherent to it's modes of operation and so of putting to secular engagement particularly from the implied other to the male.)

Or if you've got an instrument you'd like to play or a song to sing to.

Or if it just takes your just fancy.
