My self-summary
Rather a quick and quite dark sense of humour, a passion for learning new things and generally finding stuff out. Fond of tea, conversation and a few geeky things.
What I’m doing with my life
At the end of last year I went on holiday in Tokyo, and I went to Paris in the Spring. Not sure where I may go in 2016, but I'm approaching the year with a crude list of goals: Ticking off a certain number of plays, films, exhibitions, books etc. I'm just not sure what numbers I should aim for.

As of this first working week of the year: I saw a play and then a film of Richard III, and went and saw The Lobster.
It would be a gloriously odd film to discuss on a dating site.

In general: I studied Anthropology for a few years, and now work in the registry of a London university, poking academics until they do things. I find my evenings and weekends occupied pottering along to pubs, shows, films, galleries and talks on things on my own or with friends.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV drama like Game of Thrones, Sherlock and True Detective. Surreal comedy like Archer, Snuff Box, Children's Hospital, Arrested Development and Charlie Brooker's stuff.

Films! I like so many of them, but I'm really not one for horror films.
Music: I'm always hopping between artists on Spotify. But maybe some Alt-J, Amen Dunes, The Books, Bowie, Bob Dylan, British Sea Power, Kate Bush, Aphex Twin.

I have a shitty memory for books I have read and usually flit between a few fiction and non-fiction at a time. So off the top of my head; Iain (M) Banks, Gaiman, Kazuo Ishiguro, D.Adams, Pratchett, Philip K Dick.

I love the National Portrait Gallery and the Prince Charles cinema and read The Economist (for the articles, not necessarily because I agree with the politics or follow anything financial).
The six things I could never do without
- Dressing gown
- Kettle
- To-do list and calendar
- something to read
- Satchel/Man-bag
I spend a lot of time thinking about
"Wait, what am I meant to be doing?"
or rather more abstractly:
"Why has that thing evolved like *that*?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I never really follow cooking recipes and tend to improvise.

I frequently walk around my flat slightly on my toes, a bit like a cat.
