I love animals especially my Cat, Sweep, who is adorable and lovely. He's a bit of a thief though, and brings home anything he finds interesting. As long as it isn't alive, I don't mind. My favourite so far was catching him dragging a teddy bear larger than he was through the kitchen window!
Having moved to Hereford (a couple of years ago now... time flies indeed), and away from the friends I grew up with in Cardiff, I am eager to meet new people in the local area, for conversation, beer, films, walks, pub quizzes, adventures and/or other miscellaneous antics!
I enjoy cooking, and it's always fun to cook for someone. I don't claim to be an expert, but I'm not going to poison you either.
My taste in music is a little eclectic, but I can enjoy most types; going to gigs is great when I get the chance to see one of my favourites. I think the best for me was seeing Counting Crows and The Hold Steady in Cardiff in 2009. I sadly missed the former on their brief UK tour this year as I was on holiday.
My sense of humour varies from silly and surreal, to witty and sophisticated, to ironically crude. The only thing I really don't go for is stereotype-based 'humour'; sexists, racists and sexualists can just move along, please. It's hard to talk about my taste in TV and films without simply listing dozens, but I tend towards comedy and fantasy. My collection includes lots of British and American sitcoms, Anime, and various types of comedy films.
As far as gaming is concerned, RPGs all the way. And classic Nintendo of course :) I am an unabashed Pokemon fan. I have recently started getting into board games and card games. The only thing stopping me buying Settlers of Catan is the need for more than two players!
I read quite a lot, though these days a lot of it is for university courses. I like to read fairly light, humourous or fantastical fiction to contrast with the philosophical texts I read the rest of the time.
Goals and aspirations? To have fun. To be happy. To get a book published. To see a bit more of the world. To hug cute animals.
Oh, by the way my name is David; Dave is fine if you prefer it... some people think it ought to bother me but it really doesn't.
I love a good debate from time to time; it's always nice to exchange opinions and views. I'd love to meet people who enjoy good conversation, particularly people whose areas of interest or expertise are different from mine. I love being around someone I can learn from! I also like people who enjoy a bit of silliness and are happy to listen to me talking nonsense from time to time. A good sense of humour is the most important thing in a human being. I enjoy eating and am pretty adventurous with food... however I am unable to eat raw tomatoes.
