My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So, me. I'm a geek (which I define as "a nerd with stock options"), a cyclist and inveterate joker, with a list of jobs and hobbies as long as my arm that I've tried and really would like to do again if I get round to it.

Probably best to explain this sooner rather than later: I'm in a open, long-term relationship right now so I'm looking for people to chat to, meet up with and generally have fun with (interpret that in whatever way you'd like). OK Cupid rather coyly describes this as being "available".

I'm tediously practical with a silly streak, lazy tempered by the habit of picking up random new sports, read like books are going out of fashion but never seem to have read the same books as anyone else. I live in a top floor flat and quite like it because the jog up the stairs wakes me up a bit. I have an enormous collection of shoes but they're all for some specific sport or other, which means I spend most of my time in a very battered pair of Doc Martens. I'm fiercely independent but seem to fall into the same routine, which sort of makes sense - it's *my* routine damnit. :-) I have a black fedora hat which I picked up in the most unlikely of places and got most attached to, long before it got attached to the stereotype of internet douchebags. I wouldn't mind so much, but in 90% of douchebag photos it's actually a trilby.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Having variously been an aircraft designer, postman, bike mechanic, online game master and computer games tester (yes really), I'm now designing the chips that power the mobile phones everyone seems to have three of these days.

Outside of work? Cycling, gaming (electronic and boardgames), any number of sports which I pick up and usually fade away from just as I'm getting the hang of them.

Currently all my sports and hobbies seem to be vastly expensive ones. I love ski-ing/snowboarding, but Cambridge just stubbornly refuses to grow mountains.

In the same vein, I had an hour's flight in a helicopter for my birthday and would absolutely love to just get up in the air and fly every time the weather is good, but I seem to have left my mountains of cash in my other trousers. Flying hours so far: 1. Time spent daydreaming about flying: way waaay more than that.

Oh, and I'm being worryingly keen on answering the OK Cupid questions. What can I say, some of them are interesting and make you think and the rest I just put a smartarse comment on.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Putting off filling in forms.

Writing waaaay too much when I do fill them in.

Back rubs, or so I'm told. I might be being told this purely as a ploy to get more back rubs...

Logical thinking. I got nicknamed "Spock" on holiday one year. I didn't help my cause by being the only person who could do the Vulcan salute, either.

Tinkering. I like nothing more than taking stuff apart to see how it works. I even have a decent record of putting it back together correctly.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably the crossed eyes. I'm sufficiently optically unusual that opticians all gather around when I go for an eye test. After that it's probably the strange accent - Cambridge-Brummie-Yorkshire with a hint of Welsh.

Oh, wait, I forgot the gormless smile. And the hat.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
This section gets enormous, so I'll pick a representative of each. Not necessarily a favourite, just something representative:

Book: Sorry, geeks to the fore, it has to be Hitchhiker's Guide.

Movie: March of the Penguins.

Show: Mythbusters.

Music: Dire Straits, Money for Nothing. Actually, that's a photo finish with Beautiful South and Don't Marry Her.

Food: I have a highly irritating wheat intolerance so lasagne is off the menu. I'll have to resort to gourmet sausages instead. Pork and apple chipolatas, yummy.

and as an added bonus, alcohol: Black Baron real ale.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Six? Sheesh, that's a bit prescriptive. Let's list some things that I find disproportionately useful instead.

I want to put "internet" at the top, but no, I could live without it. I'd just live a very different kind of life... probably a much healthier and more exciting one. Still, at least I have pictures of cats.

Bike. I get everywhere by pedalling, I get nearly all of my exercise from it and it's a convenient outlet for my "I need to do something mechanical" urges.

Something to tinker with. I stitch chainmail jewelry, I dismantle broken electronics just to see how they went together, I break other people's designs for a living. It takes a rare kind of person to go on an impulse buying spree in B&Q's tool aisle, but I am precisely that rare. As in, the opposite of "well done".
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Anything and everything. I'm quite happy just to sit back and let my train of thought roll for hours. Apparently this is unusual and people can't imagine why I don't get bored.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
On a Friday night I'm usually flaked out from work and just want to kick back and watch crap telly (real life police shows are my guilty pleasure, either that or Mythbusters).

Saturday nights I'll be down a cosy real ale pub drinking beers with names like Old Growler and swapping double entendres with a bunch of old friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a longstanding desire to own a private hot tub that the neighbours definitely cannot see. Failing that, some extremely open-minded neighbours.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you want to chat, banter, argue the merits of obscure sports, reminisce about how much better the music was when you were young, get into a detailed and scientific argument about a point so trivial you can't remember it five minutes later, or if you've read one of the answers to my questions and just have to tell me why I'm wrong.

Or if you go anywhere near the indoor snow slopes in Hemel Hempstead or Milton Keynes. Snowboarding is about ten times more fun with someone to laugh at each other's pratfalls.
