I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm amazing at haggling. People I haggle for tend to interrupt and
pay slightly above the initial price to offset how embarrassed they
feel. Also patience. I'm really good at patience, and not like
solitaire, like queues and thirty-two hour bus rides. And I'm super
nice to switchboard operators and pets.
Also photography, writing, climbing mountains, karaoke.
Actually, I'm great at solitaire too.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The first thing people tend to notice is my absolute inability to
stop my face showing exactly how I feel about everything. I'm a
I overshare professionally.

Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut. And Anathem by Neal Stephenson and
Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace and The Yiddish Policemen's
Union by Michael Chabon and Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell and like,
on and on and on. Catch 22 by Joseph Heller and From Hell by Alan
Moore and the scene in Moby Dick where the preacher in his high
pulpit expounds on the lesson of Jonah and the Whale and how Claire
waits until she's old and grey in The Time Traveller's Wife and the
little girl saying "Hi Boo" in To Kill A Mockingbird. Jeffery
Eugenides. George R. R. Martin. George Alec Effinger.
And in movies, I like Wes Anderson as much as Martin Scorsese and
Paul Thomas Anderson. In television, I like Game of Thrones as much
as The Office and Skins as much as M*A*S*H.
In music, I like Yves Klein Blue as much as Kanye West and Regina
Spektor and a Quentin Tarantino OST. From soundtracks to Rammstein
I am not picky. Don't quite get jazz.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Great, so I've been travelling for a while and I've actually got a
bag with everything I can't afford to lose. So I'll just go through
My laptop is in here. Um. My toothbrush, some sort of painkiller
(currently Nurofen Zavance), passports, a little tic-tac container
full of chilli and a watch. And chopsticks because they're great
for a whole bunch of things.
Probably could never go without something that can take a photo.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I seem to worry about where I'm going to eat next. And what I'm
going to eat! And if I'm eating enough or too much and vitamins and
iron and lactose and sugar and protein and!
I also like to think up stories and movie scenes that would be
great and writing them down in ways that when I go back to them
later, they end up sounding kinda awful and leave me in funks.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It totally depends if the Friday night coincides with me doing
anything. I'm not bound by mere weeks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I recently realized why Eeyore in Winnie the Pooh is called Eeyore.
And five o'clock shadow has absolutely nothing to do with shadows
on the ground at five o'clock, and does not change for daylight
savings. And "luck of the Irish" isn't ironic, they actually think
I guess I'm willing to admit I'm embarassingly clueless.
