My self-summary
Let's see...about me: Um, my background is theatre and writing so I enjoy both theatre and writing. My brother is an artist and musician and I like those things too. I have dual citizenship (but before you get too excited, an American accent. Unless I'm drinking and/or talking to my mum, when it can, on occasion, get a bit Australian.) I am enthusiastic about enthusiasm. I believe anything can be interesting if talked about with passion. Big fan of banter. Make me laugh and make my day.

Whenever I hurt myself (I can be a bit clumsy so it's not unusual) I tell people my injuries are from being in a bar fight. No one ever believes me. I could be in a bar fight. I could. Really. Stop laughing.

Also, because some people on this site seem to be emphatically pro or anti tattoo, I should mention I have two. They're tasteful and girly and I love them but if you're vehemently against, well, jog on.
What I’m doing with my life
In the words of Lloyd Dobler, I'm looking for a dare-to-be-great situation.

I firmly believe life is about the journey, not the destination. Not that having goals is a bad thing, but I've come to recognize that the happiest times in my life came from being open to new opportunities and people and not from having a preconceived notion of anything. But most of my friends are more directed. I'm not against ambition and focus in other people and have some myself. I just have more of a broad plan than a day-to-day one.

My current day job provides a paycheck. It's fine and keeps a roof over my head, but I'm not gonna spend a lot of time talking about work.

I also do other stuff which pays nothing but I wish paid lots. That's the goal towards which I amble and stumble and, sometimes, run.

For funsies/health I'm enjoying the heck out of adult lap swim at Astoria Park Pool right now. (OK, to be honest, I hate how busy it is and all the people, but I love the swimming in the glorious sunset.)
I’m really good at
Stuff. I am good at stuff. And, occasionally, things. And, rarely, whatnot.
The first things people usually notice about me
In this, as in all things, context is king.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I binge lit and tv shows....

I tend to find someone I like and then read everything they wrote. I don't have favourite books so much as favourite authors. N. Gaiman, T. Pratchett, C. Moore, D. Parker, J. Austen, D. Sedaris, D. Eggers, V. Woolfe, and a bunch of poets and playwrights as well as the odd non-fiction book. Reading "Salt: A World History" right now. Well, clearly not actually "right" now. Right now I'm updating this superficial but somewhat enlightening information about myself on the theory (totally bastardized from Nick Hornby) that romantic connections are not about what you are like but about what you like. Oh, I like Hornby as well.

TV: Archer. House of Cards. Louie. Girls. AD. GoT. KITH. Other initialed things like BSG and OITNB. Firefly. Veep. Daily Show. Last Week Tonight. West Wing, Sports Night and things Sorkinese. Luther. Mad Men. Various BBC things. Blackadder esp. Some primetimey things such as Brooklyn 99, Mindy Project and Parks & Rec. I love the Sherlock reboot and think Benedict Cumberbatch has the best name ever. ~ On a side note, but TV related - If you travel through space and time in a blue police box, I'll hope that at least one of your hearts beats for me.

Movies: Lots. Selection includes - Princess Bride, When Harry Met Sally, Bourne Identity, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, The Hudsucker Proxy, Joe vs the Volcano, anything Jane Austeny, anything about spies, many things about superheroes, Rear Window, The Apartment, Super Troopers, Fight Club, Snatch, The Clock, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Grosse Pointe Blank, Befores Sunrise/Sunset/Midnight, Away We Go, Definitely, Maybe, An Education, Wes Anderson things, a whole host of 80s stuff and the Muppet Movies. Also, sometimes, I really like watching shit blow up. Thank you, Michael Bay. I like most movies except for horror pics. Unless they're funny like Shaun of the Dead or Zombieland.

Music: If you want to introduce me to stuff, that's peachy keen. What I like - Bon Iver. Alexi Murdoch. The National. Tallest Man on Earth. Of Monsters and Men. Mumford & Sons. Johnny Flynn. Regina Spektor. CW Stoneking. General mix of relatively popular hipstery bands as well as "vagina music." Can't beat Cohen and Waits and Dylan. Nina Simone. Billy Bragg. Doors. Radiohead. The Cure and The Smiths and The Pixies and The Femmes. And last but certainly not least, my friends' bands.

Podcasts: Been cutting back on my podcast consumption of late so as to read more in transit but still listen to TAL, BBC Radio 4 News Quiz, The Bugle, Wait Wait, StarTalkRadio (I heart Neil deGrasse Tyson) with occasional Nerdists and WTFs thrown in for good measure.

Food: I don't eat mammals but I don't have a problem with people who do. I am allergic to mushrooms, blue cheese and cucumbers. I heart seafood. I enjoy cooking and consider myself something of culinary MacGyver.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Words I like like continuum and vacuum - with their double U's but not W's.

Whether it's day/month/year or month/day/year depending on where I am. Also, I often spell things with the British spelling. Always have done. I blame my mum.

Inevitability. Free will. Big philosophical crap. I'm wicked deep.
On a typical Friday night I am
A) being atypical.
B) being nerdalicious.
C) sleeping.
D) wookin pa nub.
E) all of the above.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I often hum the A-Team theme song without realizing it. - Update: I have been told that lately I have transitioned to the National Geographic tune...or I slip into Knight Rider. Or the Sanford and Son theme.

I lost my reading glasses over a year ago but rather than go get new ones, I just upped the font size on my kindle.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 31–45
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
you are amused or intrigued by anything above. I've made this profile about as me as me can be. So, iffin ya didn't really like it, chances are a first date would be excruciating. And that's ok. I'm not here to meet and date a ton of guys, I'm here to meet and date one guy and then leave, I just haven't met that one guy yet. Maybe it's you. If you think so, write me. For serious.

You are ok with someone who can be at times (and as evidenced by the length of this profile) a little circumloquacious.

You'll play mini-golf. Or bowl. Or shoot pool. And will not laugh at my ridiculously poor hand-eye coordination (in a mean way- the odd chuckle is acceptable.) You play cribbage or scrabble with aplomb.

Addendum: Please do NOT message me if you A) are much older or younger, say a decade in either direction; B) do not have a picture posted - it makes me think you're on the lam from the long arm of the law; C) you are going to call me dear, darling, sweetie or some other term of endearment in your initial email, it's creepy - save those for after you've actually met a person (exceptions made for sassy southern waitresses or nonagenarian Australian grandpas); or D) you are only on this site to get laid - don't get me wrong, I like sex, a lot, but if I want to be treated like a piece of meat, I'd go to a club. It's a lot faster and I'd be drunk, and thus, feel less demeaned.

Thanks.
