My self-summary
I enjoy self summaries about as much as I enjoy children wailing in the night and aggressive drunks (i.e., not at all), but I'll give this a go anyway. Despite every British bone in my body telling me to stop talking so much about myself, because, dammit, it's rude.

I'm constantly curious; if I had my way I'd probably just spend the entire day reading or watching documentaries. Or being carried around historical sites on a palanquin. The smallest things delight me - I've got a big fat childish streak, which also means I'm pretty good at amusing myself with whatever's at hand. Conversely things that move other people to tears often baffle me and on occasion aggravate me. Like Sex and the City. Or sports.

Books, animals, and Ben and Jerry are my friends. I have many nemeses, but none of them know I exist so we leave each other in peace. Also, food is the most wonderful thing in the world. Fair warning: I'm fat. It doesn't bother me, and I hope it won't bother you.

I enjoy talking, and I take humour very seriously.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to figure out exactly how the idea of race spread to and was understood by the Japanese. Seriously, it's my thing. Also trying to write fiction (and failing), trying to diet (and failing) and trying to read more fiction (and being deliriously successful).
I’m really good at
I get the impression that I amuse people, but then again they may only be laughing nervously out of terror - hard to tell with you humans. I tell a good story, usually involving a mishap from my long (possibly still ongoing) youth. I quite enjoy listening too, especially if the other person has something honest, interesting, or scandalous to say. Any one of the three will suffice.
The first things people usually notice about me
Not sure, I've never thought to ask. My rapier-sharp wit, perhaps, or my impressive ability to hone in on the most expensive thing in the room and then eat it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
There are literally thousands in each category. Anything cultural I tend to like if it's well thought out and keeps my disbelief suspended. So giant robots bashing the crap out of monsters is fine as long as the people doing it are REAL people I actually care about (I'm looking at you, Guillermo del Toro!).

I don't read poetry or listen to music, not out of choice, and I would like to get a thorough education on both. Books and films are like oxygen and sunlight to me; without them I'd wither away into a ragged stalk of a man and be of no use to anyone except as mulch.

I adore food, cook whenever I have the resources and time (anything from lemon roast chicken to curries). Cooking is like the best kind of lab work - you mix together all these elements and heat them in strange looking containers and if it all works out you'll have something yummy to eat whilst watching the latest edition of Horizon on Youtube.
The six things I could never do without
My Kindle. It has a name.

The internet. Source of knowledge, joy, and shame.

Good food.

Good company.

Japan. I love Japan, I study Japan. Japan is like my slightly peculiar best friend who I've known forever. Generally she's cool and really interesting, but every now and then she does something really weird and all I can do is give her a fond smile and say, 'Oh, Japan, you ARE weird.'

The freedom to travel. I've been to about 30 countries and want to make it to Peru, Spain, Portugal, Egypt, New Zealand, Kenya, Iceland, and Botswana before I die.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My brain is a bit like the front page of Reddit science, but with a few extra categories like 'people', 'what do I want to eat?', 'books', 'films', 'Studio Ghibli', etc., etc. I do spend a lot of time thinking about what's going on out there in deep space because it's fun and no one will be able to tell me I'm wrong in my lifetime. Also, the past. Everything exciting that ever happened happened in the past and sometimes wandering down the street to class wondering what Tokyo really looked like in 1730 is just right.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having drinks with my friends, or relaxing at home watching whatever new fare BBC 4 has to offer. Thinking about how amazing it's going to be waking up after 10am the next day.
