My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Cheery, left-wing, historian and classicist. I enjoy travel, singing, good food and booze, walking and hiking, a variety of geeky interests in the sci-fi/fantasy line, making people laugh, and learning new things.

When not at work, reading obscure ancient texts, or dashing to a rehearsal of some sort, I'm most often to be found pint in hand having a chat with friends about games, films, politics, random internet things, or recent funny or embarrassing experiences.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Finished a doctorate in Ancient History last year, starting a research fellowship in Cambridge in October and working in HE admin in the meantime. I love working in HE (in spite of the nosedive the sector is in as a whole): it's great to contribute to something I genuinely feel makes a very positive contribution to individuals and society.

Outside work, I spend most of my time reading, rehearsing, gaming, at the gym, or catching up with friends and family, as well as doing volunteer work here and there with museums.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh. Singing tenor lines badly (I'm really a baritone). Bumping into things. Making bruschetta. Practically inhaling coffee. Writing about people and things obscure and ancient.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Apparently I have a distinctively dirty laugh and a cheesy grin. Also my voice: it carries.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Difficult to choose, a selection will have to suffice:
Books - Persuasion, the Aubrey-Maturin series, LOTR, Sword at Sunset, A Song Of Ice and Fire, political and historical non fiction.
Movies - Master and Commander, The Matrix, 300, The Fifth Element, Troy, Top Gun (I know), Skyfall.
TV - BSG, Star Trek, GoT, Firefly, Black Books, West Wing, stand up comedy.
Music - all sorts, soft spots for rock, rap, some metal, and folk. Been listening to a lot of Within Temptation, Paramore, Sara Bareilles, and High Kings recently.
I game quite a bit too, so I'll throw those in here - Mass Effect series, Dragon Age series, Deus Ex series, Witcher series, X Com, Civ games, Arkham Horror, Cards Against Humanity, Dominion. A little D&D here and there.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Assuming bare necessities are covered - family and friends (counts as one, right?), chocolate, coffee, games, a fully stocked bookshelf, and something worthwhile to do with my days.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The ancient Greeks, what I have almost certainly forgotten to do that day, coffee, food.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
In the pub with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I own a pair of Star Trek cufflinks.
