Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love to travel
it's one of the major drivers in my life right now. I want to
explore more of Asia - more of Japan and China, Angkor in Cambodia,
and Myanmar, along with Europe. As well as, increasingly, any
damned place I can get to! My long service leave is over three
years away, and I can't wait - I currently have my heart set on an
80-ish day package adventure tour from Xian to Istanbul, along the
I love surrealist and/or absurdist humour
. This probably doesn't belong
here, but it tells you something about me, I think. Or at least
about what I laugh at. I like the Goons and Monty Python. I like
Terry Pratchett's novels. I like things that make me laugh and
things that make me think, whether separately or together.
I like tight, witty writing. I love broad vocabularies and good
I like music
. I get
really excited when I meet people who enjoy the bands I do. I get
even more excited when I introduce someone to a band I love and
they take to it.
I am well-read, amusing, and honest.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Travelling. Indonesia last year, I went to Cambodia and Laos early
this year, Greece and Japan the year before last. I'm also studying
part time for my bachelor's degree.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've been told I'm a good listener. I maintain an open mind. I'm
really not too comfortable with this question, to be honest.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm short and loud. That'd be my guess!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
(a) Anything by Pratchett or Gaiman. A Clockwork Orange. Patrick
Rothfuss (<3!). Scott Lynch (More Gentleman Bastards, please!)
Snow Crash was excellent. I wanted to like Cryptonomicon more than
I ultimately did. Charles Stross, although Accelerando hurt my
brain - I think I need to do it in one sitting to really appreciate
(b) Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, A Clockwork Orange, Kevin
Smith's films, Monty Python's The Life of Brian and The Search for
the Holy Grail. I've also really been enjoying Jackie Chan, Sammo
Hung and Jet Li films, and other similarly fun kung fu films,
lately. I don't have much time for stuff along the lines of Ong Bak
- really gory and serious, but I did enjoy both Fearless and Hero,
which are intensely aesthetically pleasing, without any humour, and
have rather good plots.
(c) Daft Punk. The Decemberists. The Flaming Lips. Modest Mouse.
Broken Social Scene. Joanna Newsom. MC Frontalot. I've been in love
with lyrics - whether fun or funny or clever or thought-provoking
or just well crafted - more than sounds lately.
(d) Potatoes! I love potatoes. You name it. I also like most
seafood, Japanese and Thai food, and pasta. I'm 50/50 on
westernised Chinese food, but I really loved the food in China.
Greek food can be lovely, too, as of course can Italian. I have no
familiarity with French but I'd love to change that.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I've never liked this question. Travel, a good (or bad!) book, my
friends and family, good food, a good film and free time.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Sometimes music. Sometimes books or film. The things I have strong
opinions on - religion, sex and sexuality. Mostly, I suspect,
inanity that I don't remember too well later on. I tend to mostly
recall interactions with people and noteable events in my day, not
what I thought about while I was driving home from work!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I meet up with my gaming group on Fridays now!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I find sexuality endlessly fascinating.
