❖ Conversation with my former flatmate:
Jonathan: I've been here three years and not had a single date..
Me: Yeah, so?
Jonathan: Well you've been here a month and you're dating JESUS!
❖ I am a 31 year old Spanish graduate who is somewhat shy but saucy...
❖ Although I have a degree in Spanish, I should tell you that 'fluent' is not an accurate description of my linguistic capabilities...sure, I completed a degree in the subject but my university was shoddy and most of what I taught myself pre-enrolment I managed to forget throughout my final year...reassuring, no? And upon receiving my preliminary certificate it told me I would graduate with a French degree. Mind you, I did once manage a whole conversation in French about English breakfasting habits and potatoes with the man sat next to me at a Fête du Jambon braisé in Brittany. I should apply to the UN.
I'm a bit of a flirt yet (perhaps due to my penchant for staying in on Friday/Saturday nights) I’ve been single since 2007...frustrating in a whole variety of ways!
❖ I love dancing but my passion by no means indicates an aptitude for said activity & "clubbing" (i.e. exchanging sweat with 500 strangers in some cavernous venue bathed in alcohol and their various bodily fluids, to the tinnitus-inducing beat of trance/house/dub "music" and epileptic lighting effects) isn’t really my thing...not that I'm a hermit...I do occasionally venture outside and fraternise with the populace.
❖ I briefly took fencing lessons as a child (the type with swords, not dead trees) and have dreamed of buckling my swash so-to-speak ever since, though it's rather unlikely that any arguments will be settled with a thrust and parry combination. En guarde...
Bloody hell, that was a bit of a saga wasn't it? I'll shut up now...
❖ I am listless, restless, and jobless (lo and behold, I have been employed!)
❖ "When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse,
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look but it was gone.
I cannot put my finger on it now.
The child is grown, the dream is gone.
I have become comfortably numb."
❖ I am a, secondary, and account
