My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well, hello there. My profile, you say? In bitesize form? Go on, then:

• I prefer Ten to Twelve and Twelve to Nine, but Eleven is my Doctor and I'd pick River Song over all of them any day of the week.
• Reading The Catcher in the Rye makes me want to punch Holden Caulfield right in his big stupid head.
• Home doesn't feel like home unless I have a print of Edward Hopper's Nighthawks on the wall.
• I wear a lot of beige. I mean, a lot of beige. Enough that people sometimes think I'm going to some sort of theme party.
• I like to think I can make beige work.
• I prefer pizza to curry, Dutch to German, paper to plastic, sci-fi to fantasy, John Cusack to Johnny Depp, McDonagh to Molière, Stephen King to Charles Dickens, Christopher Reid to William Wordsworth, and little bits of Audrey Niffenegger to just about everything else.

I think that'll do for now.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a writer -- no, seriously; it turns out that's an actual career you can have -- who moved to Barcelona for a while to be bohemian and learn Spanish, and ended up sitting in terrace bars and half-assedly learning Dutch instead. The best laid plans of mice and men, and all that.

My Spanish is still très mauvais, but it turns out that being able to legitimately answer 'So where was I? Oh, that's right... Barcelona' when people ask me what I've been doing all year never gets old.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Bad puns. Or impressions of JFK doing his 'Ask not what your country can do for you' speech.

Yeah, I don't know why either.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably a crash, followed by the sound of me saying, 'Oops, sorry!', depending on how far away they are or how clumsy I'm being at that particular moment.

Then floppy hair. Apparently.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: And When Did You Last See Your Father?, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, The Godfather, Replay, A Single Man, American Gods, The Long Walk, and The Time Traveller's Wife. For non-fiction, I like anything that's jape-filled and childish, so Bill Bryson, Danny Wallace and Dave Gorman all do nicely. Leave me with some Stephen King, Agatha Christie or Raymond Chandler and you'll come back to me a happy man.

Movies: 50/50, Groundhog Day, Toy Story, The Song of Lunch, Citizen Kane, Paperman, Groundhog Day, Nuit Blanche, Chasing Amy, Eagle vs Shark, Casablanca, Groundhog Day, The Artist, and, to my eternal shame, Babe. I tell people my favourite film of all time is 12 Angry Men; in actual fact, it's a toss-up between that and Conversations with Other Women. Gabrielle Zevin answered my question on Goodreads once and I positively swooned.

Music: Horribly acousticy mopey indie folk blah. Damien Rice, Emmy the Great, Slow Club, Okkervil River, The Antlers, Carly Comando, John Wesley Harding (the man, not the album), OK Go, The Penguin Café Orchestra, The National, David Ford. Instrumental when I'm working, jazz when I'm drinking. Kind of Blue is one of the greatest albums of all time. That's just science.

Food: I've got a longterm thing going with Spearmint TicTacs. That counts, right?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think admitting I like Babe would do it. What else do you want from me, OKCupid?
