My self-summary
Well, hello there. My profile, you say? In bitesize form? Go on, then:

• I prefer Oswin to Clara and Clara to Amy, but I'd pick River any day of the week.
• Reading The Catcher in the Rye makes me want to punch Holden Caulfield right in his 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, piano to guitar, Spanish to German, paper to plastic, 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
I'm a writer -- no, seriously; it turns out that's an actual career you can have -- who moved to Barcelona in order to practice my Spanish by helping small children to practice their English. Now I'm back and doing the same thing for foreign kids at an English language summer school in the Midlands.

My Spanish is still très mauvais.
I’m really good at
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
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
Books: And When Did You Last See Your Father?, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, The Godfather, Replay, A Single Man, 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.

Food: I've got a longterm thing going with Spearmint TicTacs. That counts, right?
On a typical Friday night I am
In. Or out. It depends on whether or not I have to pretend to be a real human being for a while, or if I'm supposed to be a responsible adult the next morning.

(For reference, 'being a resonsible adult' in this context often means dancing around in a tiger suit and a sombrero at nine in the morning.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think admitting I like Babe would do it. What else do you want from me, OKCupid?
