My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Former chef, now working as a Customer Accounts Agent (which is a posh way of saying I work in the call center) for a water company. It's not TOO difficult to work out which one.

Before we go any further, it's probably worth mentioning that I have a mild form of a disability known as spina bifida myleocele. I don't use a wheelchair, but I do use a cane and walk kinda funny. It doesn't affect me greatly day-to-day, though I tend to stay away from large crowds, and I don't drink alcohol or go "out out" much. If this is a problem, then... well, bye, I guess.

I think it probably takes some effort to get to know me well. Once you do though, most people find it's worth it. But a lot of people can't be arsed.

I'm a nerd 'in theory'; I like nerdy stuff like Dungeons and Dragons, Star Trek and comic books (I don't actually own any, or know much about specific comics, but I like the idea of liking them...). Superheroes are cool. And most people who identify themselves as nerds usually have a lot in common with me. However I also like 'normal stuff' like football and rugby union (especially the latter). I'm much more of a Leonard than a Sheldon in that regard. I tend to be a bit of a social chameleon, in that I can find something in common with pretty much anyone.

I'm into video games, but mostly RPGs. I used to play WoW, but haven't since about 2009 (when did the first expansion come out? I haven't played since a few months after that). Some of my favourites are Bastion, Dishonored, Deus Ex, Borderlands, The Witcher 2. Any game with a bit of story and not too much shooty shooty is good. I do play a few FPS games, but it tends to be games like Loadout and TF2, which are a bit less 'serious'. Generally I stick to RPGs, city builder games, adventure games, strategy games, etc. And Crusader Kings 2, natch. I like medieval history.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Going up, and to the right. (Someone'll get that reference, one day).

I'm not really a huge traveler. I have no great desire to 'see the world', or move around an excessive amount. I'm not one of these "I must go to all these places before I die" type people - I don't even own a passport (working on that in 2014...). I'd love to go to France, Norway and Japan, though. They're definitely on my list.

I've just finally got a stable job that isn't cheffing (which I did for a few years, but isn't a great choice for a guy with spina bifida...). Now I'm in a call center, which is much less physically demanding, so I can save up for exciting voyagers to distant lands... one day.

Mostly though I'm just meandering through life, taking things as they come.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've always seen myself as a support class in the RPG of life. I'm the paladin, the bard or the druid. I don't really do anything that well, I have no really useful skills, but I tend to make everyone around me better at what they do. Whether that's through my desire to be helpful and useful, or by my friendly, honest personality. Things tend to be better and run smoother when I'm around, but nobody really knows why.

That applies to social scenarios as well as work, really. I'm not particularly hilarious, and definitely not one to start interesting conversations, or solve problems for people. But I'm there, willing and eager, and people seem to like me for it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I walk a bit funny. Not like, full retard funny. Just... distinctly. This is due to spina bifida myleocele, and if you can't look past that, then, well... fuck off. Basically. I don't want to know you anyway.

I think that's what most people notice first, though.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
(A) Anything fantasy or sci-fi. A Song Of Ice And Fire by George R. R. Martin is my current favourite. All of Dan Abnett's Warhammer novels, Douglas Adams, Robert Jordan and Terry Pratchett are favourites too. Need to get around to Neil Gaiman and David Eddings.

Definitely need to read more of the 'classics'. My problem with the 'classics' is, most of them deal with issues I find really boring. They're usually about romance, racism, politics or some other deep, intellectual subject. Where are the vampires, dragons, swords and sorcery, or the shit getting blown up? The heroic battles with the evil nemeses? Aside from Shakespeare, who goes to admirable lengths to include many of those things and Alexandre Dumas, pickings are slim in the heroic magic dragon warfare department. Plus, there's the time factor. There's only one of me, and thousands of books. Every time I go to Waterstones, one of my favourite authors has written a new book it seems (Dan Abnett usually about five, he's a machine or something).

(B) Serenity, District 9, Inception, Blade Runner, the Blade Trilogy, Kingdom of Heaven, 300 and the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Basically I like almost anything that has a combination, or all, of:
Swords, magic, dragons, vampires, aliens, shit getting blown up, space ships, war.

I like comedies too, but I tend to find TV series better than films for that. For every Anchorman or Zoolander there's 20 piles of shit (usually starring the once-awesome Ryan Reynolds...).

The absolute winningest film of all time has to be Interview with the Vampire though. Apparently the film does a poor job of telling the story in the books. On that basis, the books have jumped up a few notches in my 'to read' list.

As for TV shows, I love most of the quirky Channel 4 comedies (The IT Crowd, Black Books, The Mighty Boosh, Green Wing, etc). Plus anything historical or fantasy. And some non-American cookery shows (Great British Bake Off, Masterchef (especially the Australian version)).

Anything Alan Partridge-related is also must-watch. Currently listening to the audiobook version of I, Partridge. It's fantastic.

(C) Power Metal, Folk Metal, Heavy Metal and that sort of thing. Also more traditional rock and metal.
Favourite bands include: Edguy, Avantasia (and everything else Tobias Sammet does), Iron Maiden, Sonata Arctica, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Dio, Korpiklaani, Ensiferum, Alestorm, Turisas, Amon Amarth, Wolf, Blind Guardian, Rhapsody of Fire, Symphony X, Hammerfall, Dragonforce (pre-Ultimate Beatdown or whatever their latest absolute abomination was called. First two albums, awesome. Inhuman Rampage, decent, trailed off at the end. New album? Awful, awful, awful), Dream Evil, Firewind, Helloween, Manowar, Masterplan (Jorn Lande is/was better by far, but I didn't mind the DiMaio stuff), Magnum, Battlelore, and the mighty Lordi, pre- and post-Eurovision win. Jorn Lande has the greatest voice ever.

Basically anything with guitars that doesn't take itself too seriously (and in the case of Yngwie Malmsteen, stuff with guitars that takes itself far too seriously). Fantasy themes help. I think Manowar's 'The Gods Made Heavy Metal' pretty much sums up my tastes. That, or Dream Evil's 'Heavy Metal Jesus'. Edguy's 'Judas At The Opera' also.

Bands I like but don't include as 'favourites' (because then people expect me to know stuff about them) include: Motley Crue, Guns n Roses, Bon Jovi, Led Zepplin, AC/DC. I like that sort of stuff, but I can't give you an 80 page essay about their history and discography like some people can. I also don't own many albums (usually just greatest hits compilations, if anything). They're definitely classed as 'my sort of thing', though.

I'm somewhat of a fan of 'comedy music' too, such as Stephen Lynch, Tim Minchin, Weird Al Yankovic and Richard Cheese and Lounge Against The Machine. Bill Bailey sort of counts here too I guess.

Also I've recently been getting into the newer Pendulum stuff, and stuff like Prodigy, I also like bands such as Chimaera, Opeth and Soil at rock nights, but I probably wouldn't listen to them at home.

Scroobius Pip is also a firm favourite of mine, although I wouldn't really class myself as a 'rap fan'. To be fair, I haven't really looked too hard for "proper" rap, I'd probably like it if I bothered.

(D) Italian/French food. Or Pasties! Oooh, and Nelson Squares. Does anyone remember those? UPDATE: They do an inferior variant of Nelson Squares in Warren's now, replacing the pastry with shortbread and calling it Nelson Slices, pffft.

Basically, yeah.. I like home-cooked food. I'm not averse to takeaways, but I try to eat reasonably well.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1, Friends, Family, etc. I don't have many, but I wuv them.
2, PC/Netbook. Of course. What self-respecting geek could?
3, Mobile Phone (mostly as an MP3 player).
4, Walking stick, 'cause... well, y'know.
5, Hydrogen.
6, Oxygen.

Yeah, those last two should probably be higher up, really. I'm not the type to get attached to belongings, I tend to get attached to their functions though. I don't have any particular attachment to my Netbook for example (though it is nice), but living without the Internet would be hard. Mostly because I'd have to find something else to do in the evenings without it costing money.

Considering how little I talk, I get surprisingly sad when I'm alone with no internet. It's like... even though I rarely do talk to people, it's always nice to know that I can if I want to. :p
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Stuff that isn't important. And going to Finland. I keep dreaming up this awesome tour of Scandinavia, then realising such things cost money.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The same thing I do every night Pin- er, hmm. To be honest I'm not a 'friday night' kinda guy. Generally I prefer quiet nights (whether in or out), and if I am out I've generally found a quiet corner in which to hide. :p

I tend to work evenings too, my preferred shift finishes at 8. So when I'm on that shift I don't often get home until 9.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really like the Goo Goo Dolls. ¬_¬ No, really. I'm sort of not allowed to, but... they're good. Or they were. Not sure if they're still around.

I also used to be a wrestling fan, and to a certain extent still am. I like the indy scene (CHIKARA, PWG and RoH mostly), not so much the WWE any more.

As an aside, I hate it when people write "if I told you it wouldn't be private lol" or something similar in this box. If you're not willing to admit it, then it's not "The most private thing I'm willing to admit", is it?
