My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Quite interested in the world around me, apparently "serious-looking". Easygoing and well-meaning but a bit bumbling when distracted. Fond of tea, conversation, jogging and a hint of geeky things from all over. Generally pleased with the unexpected.

Self-concious about having cut the full-sentences summary down to squidgy information chunks. I am not as serious as my writing style might suggest.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Updated on a weekly/occasional basis!
I studied Anthropology for a fair 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, talks, shows, the gym, films and galleries on my own or with friends.

This week I've tried going to a gym class called 'Bodypump', which involves repeatedly lifting barbells and doing squats with weights. It turns out that all my muscles are crap at this high intensity exercise, and I've been all ache-y.

I always go to the Portrait of the Year exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, and really enjoyed visiting it this year. It's frustrating that I can't really buy too many postcards of my favourites to put on my wall, as I'd be bombarded by creepy stares.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Good at falling asleep on public transport and waking up just in time.

Terrible at keeping a straight face. Advice welcomed.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

All of the below is an attempt at a representative sample.
Music that could crudely be called indie/alternative/folk & minimalist. So that's Aphex Twin, Alt-J, Bowie, Metronomy, British Sea Power and Sufjan Stevens. I recently signed up to Spotify and have been obsessively hopping between artists. I've found myself listening to Led Zeppelin, Leonard Cohen and LCD Soundsystem the past couple of days, so am obviously on an 'L' theme.

TV like Game of Thrones, Sherlock, True Detective, Have I Got News For You, Snuff Box, Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, Children's Hospital & Arrested Development.

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, Margaret Atwood. I tend to like dystopias and 1960's counter-culture novels and haven't found a great way to enjoy magical realism. I've also got a fondness for poetry, mainly late-20th century British like Philip Larkin and T.S. Eliot. My most recent fiction completion was 'Flowers for Algernon' (Excellent), and I'm failing to read Ulysses and some academic library books.

I like playing games with friends, be they board, card, storytelling or computer ones. I don't like the games where you collect and paint little men, but do like improvising stories at the pub with friends.

Films: I saw The Grand Budapest Hotel, and it was immediately one of my favourite ever films. I have a soft spot for Marvel superhero films, as they awaken the inner 10 year-old in me. Other than that, I've got a thing for Coen brothers farces and just generally lots of the other good stuff that's about. Everyone says Amélie, right?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Dressing gown
- Kettle
- To-do list, else I'd be lost.
- The internet, both for reading little articles on weird histories like Soviet wages and for stupid youtube videos.
- The Economist (I read it for the articles, not the free-market pin-ups!)
- Satchel/Man-bag
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
"Wait, what am I meant to be doing?"
or rather more abstractly:
"If I became a time traveller, how would I explain this aspect of modern life to someone from two hundred years ago?"
and other social-sciencey type questions.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a tendency to forget the word for something and improvise instead. I have distractedly told myself that I had to "take the whites out of the clothes-hole-thing". By which I meant shirts from the washing machine. I've also recently called a tray a "plate for a plate".

My jogging playlist includes 'Wanted Dead or Alive', 'Gangnam Style' and 'Bad Moon Rising'. I in no way endorse these songs outside of this context.
