My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Okay, so I get that the pining lyrics made me sound a puppy tied up outside a supermarket.. I was new.. I'll try & do better..!

The Interesting :

Played in several bands when younger, one of which signed to EMI publishing. Sadly alcoholism, gambling addiction, drug abuse, suicide attempts, bankruptcy and a motorbike crash saw off any further progression - and that was just the Drummer... The last band I was in once supported the Manic Street Preachers. (The fact I wasn't a member at the time is a complete irrelevance..)

The Not Quite As Interesting :

I'm an IT Consultant, and to my eternal shame & damnation usually work for those nasty Banks.. sorry..! Not particularly charitable or compassionate.. I did work for London Electricity for many years, which felt like a drop-in centre for homeless alcoholics, so hopefully my dues to society are not completely unpaid! The days of IT depts being staffed exclusively by dyssemic men in Uriah Heep t-shirts with 3-week-old bits of sicked-up pot noodle in their beards are thankfully behind us..

Recently (ish) separated after a 15 year relationship, I'm *temporarily* (until November) a working single father to 2 beautiful young children (4 & 9). This doesn't mean I can't "date", but it does mean texting me to say you'll be in Starbucks in Piccadilly in 20 mins if I fancy joining you is unlikely to have a successful outcome. Unless you actually want to *be* the babysitter.. in which case, thanks!! I'm off down the pub quiz.. ;)

The Trivia :

* Was born in 1960s Capetown, which considering my father's only real skill in life was starting Strikes (he's slightly to the left of Stalin.. and he 'hates' Britain.. yes - I AM Ed Miliband!!!) makes for an interesting tale.. Not many folk have been deported at 6 weeks old..

* Childhood in Brisbane, including being rescued from our roof during the floods in '74. Went to 15 different junior schools. ( My mother disputes this. She says it was no more than 13.. )

* Moved to UK shortly after, and settled in the cultural epicentre of the universe that is Blackpool. (the least said..!) Escaped to London aged 22, and never looked back.. okay, maybe a couple of times - mostly to check it wasn't following..

* Have travelled (mostly en route to Oz to see "Stalin") through Thailand, Hong Kong (okay, that one didn't take long!), Japan, Mexico and Central Europe.

* Studied Genealogy, and found I'm the 3rd cousin of The Beatle's original Manager, Allan Williams‎, and a direct descendant of Jane Seymour's Aunt (Henry VIII's wife, not the actress!)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Waiting for your message! ;)

Okay - stuff I like:

Music was my first love.. And it will be my laaaast..
Skiing - every year, mostly in central Europe.
Cooking - am a pretty good cook. Thai & Mexican I learnt in those countries.
DIY - better put under "I'm really good at", but enjoy it too. I'm good with my wood.. ;)
Genealogy - love doing random peoples' trees, for a laugh
Holidays - REALLY need a holiday, somewhere warm!! Suggestions appreciated!
Gym, and cycling when I can - in the country, not on London roads.
Coffee!!! Recent convert to flat white.
Sad geeky shit, like Raspberry Pi, teaching myself Python.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Songwriting, I'd have to say! Play guitar and keyboards, and eager to rediscover that now. Oh, and fixing your computer. As long as it's not fixing the songwriting software on your computer. I'm rubbish at that.

Oh - and giving a massage! I'm very, very good at that..
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hideous facial disfigurements, my chronic, over-powering BO, and the sickening realisation that they weren't my photos.. And then you see the flowers..
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Hmm.. this might take a while.. work in progress..

Music : mostly 80s / 90s alt rock/indie/goth : Chameleons, 'Holy Bible' period Manics, early Radiohead, Killing Joke, Pixies, Japan/Sylvian, Joy Division, Bowie, early Cult, Green Day (not the new guff..), Amanda Palmer / Dresden Dolls (my best "knew 'em before they were famous.."), Nirvana, Die So Fluid.

Adore many classical pieces - too many to Liszt.. ;)

Currently on repeat play : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pixkuUL9LgU

But my tastes can be more varied.. I've even found myself watching that new Miley Cyrus video quiet a lot.. can't think why..

Comedy : Bill Hicks, Doug Stanhope, Peter Cook (genius!). Enjoy live comedy, and love Up The Creek, which is a short walk from me. Not too enamoured of the current mock the week / live at the apollo crowd, except Milton Jones.. Bring back Frankie!!

Books : "Peppa's Christmas", "Guess Who? With Thomas & Friends", and (if I'm very lucky) The Three Investigators. I have 2 kids, and too busy living to sit down and read at the moment. Back when I did : Miller, Hesse (Hermann, not Rudolf!), Orwell, Grass, Sartre, Hardy.. Dawkins, Hitchens..
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
oxygen
water
food
transgender amputee donkey porn
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where the universe ends, and what's after that.. and what's after that.. and what's after th[BANG!]

What was going before time started.. and what happened before then.. and (..okay, you get the idea!)

And why okc matches me with so many bisexuals.. Cool.. but intriguing..
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Escaping from the guards, having gnawed my way through the restraints.. then off to collect slaves for the afterworld.. y'know.. the usual...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a secret multi-billionaire, on here masquerading as a twat in the hope of finding true love..
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
..if you haven't take this profile any more seriously than I have!

...if we match! That'll tell you more than anything at the minute.. Am new here, and slowly filling this out as & when inspiration strikes.. ;) I promise to reply to all, even if it's just 'Oh god, sorry - the donkey porn thing was a joke!', *unless* your answers suggest racism, homophobia, indifference to animal suffering, or just good old-fashioned stupidity ("The Earth is bigger than the Sun"..) - in which, just trust me, we won't get along.. :)

..and if you've read this far, without scrolling down - THANK YOU! :) I'm looking for someone who has a similar humour (or at least can tolerate mine!), values, and maybe interests - initially for meeting up, chatting over a brew or two, and whatever else you then may wish to do.. I'm happily single at present, though up for something serious if someone nice rocked up and that felt right for both of us. Otherwise - sit back, relax & enjoy the ride.. :)

Okay - so let's try this.. chat me if you find yourself admiring the wordplay and humour in this (if maybe not the complete sentiment)....
