My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Introverted giant seeks similar for mammoth-herding and general ravaging of countryside. May involve dropping random Skyrim references.

I am completely addicted to fantasy novels. Apparently escapism is my thing and I spend far too much of my time immersed in worlds that could never exist (but which should, obv.).

I am a fairly quiet person, until you get to know me, at which point I may very well veer alarmingly between silence and fits of spontaneous giggling. I'm aware that a six and a half foot tall man giggling is a little alarming.

My sense of whimsy frequently gets completely out of control and takes me off on wild conversational tangents. I've decided it's charming, not annoying.

I'm an unconcerned Atheist - I prefer not get into debates about it because ultimately no one ever really changes their mind except by themselves.

I prefer pubs to clubs, and love having friends round for dinner or nipping out to small (cheap) restaurants for food and chatting.

I can't dance in the slightest. No, I don't just need to relax and enjoy it. All the relaxation in the world won't make broccoli taste any less grim and likewise dancing.

Poor use of apostrophes in signs annoys me intensely. I'm also aware that Murphy's Law of Grammar means that I will now make some glaring blunders in the rest of my profile.

I prefer simple clothes (on me), and dislike rudeness, and attempting to write summaries of myself.

I enjoy the classy double/single entendre combination joke - which people tend to love or hate in equal measure.

I am far too fond of random portmanteaux and I think 'Pitch Perfect' might be the best film ever made and I'm not sorry.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in administration for a fairly well-known University, and most of my day consists of using my accent to charm American pensioners into attending our summer programmes.

Outside of that, I read far too much, write content for an online role-playing game, play musical instruments, make bread when it's wildly unnecessary to do so, and tell myself that I should start writing again.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading ridiculously fast. Making random stollen. I can play guitar and melodeon with varying degrees of success. I can puzzle out how to work pretty much any computer program within about five minutes - although I'm not sure that's really a marketable skill, is it? Oh, and I'm told I'm good at writing descriptive prose - although I'm not certain I entirely believe that.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably that I'm rather tall, which does tend to make me stand out. I would actually prefer to be a little shorter - mainly because slicing the top of your head off on the underside of a door frame isn't much fun!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - I'm an avid reader of fantasy literature, with occasional forays into sci-fi - and when absolutely pushed for reading material, I am prepared to concede that other genres may not actually be completely mythical.

Obviously with my slant on fantasy I've covered the standards - Wheel of Time, Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, the Belgariad (fluff!), Raymond E. Feist's books. I also really enjoy some of the things in the Fantasy Masterworks line - the Lyonesse saga by Jack Vance is a particular favourite, as well as Gene Wolfe's Book of the New Sun. L.E Modesitt is another firm favourite, and Guy Gavriel Kay's 'Tigana' is a masterpiece. The last book I read was 'The Gate to Women's Country' by Sheri S. Tepper.

I used to own several hundred Fantasy novels, but had to give about three hundred of them to a charity shop the second-to-last time I moved. Slightly heartbreaking, but at least someone else gets some use out of them.

Movies - well, I prefer trashy Sci-Fi, comedy and action. I hate horror films because I absolutely cannot stand being made to jump. I'm aware this makes me a wuss, thanks.

Shows - Star Trek in all its permutations, BSG (remake and original), Spiral (gritty French crime drama). I just lately became addicted to Sons of Anarchy - curse you, Netflix!

Food - I love food. I'm currently trying to eat less of it.

Music - My musical taste is completely all over the place. I listen to a lot of folk music, am completely addicted to Frukie's Indie-Folk stream, and an also quite likely to plug myself into classical music, death metal, blues, jazz or occasional cheesy pop. About the only things I don't really care for are rap and J/K-pop.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
...and my mind goes completely blank.

An internet connection
...lungs? My spleen?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Ideas for stories. I constantly plan new worlds for story settings in my head. Perhaps one day I'll actually start writing one, who knows!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relieved to be home from work, and likely to be ensconced in front of the laptop. Cocoa may or may not be involved.

I'd also be perfectly happy to be enjoying a book with someone in a pub with a log fire - possibly with mulled cider.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Some friends have a festival celebrating me, which is either hugely sweet or devastatingly egotistical, depending on who you ask. We always have a vegetable cake. Obscure military hats may well be becoming a tradition as well, since someone bought me a pith helmet. Oh yes, and I own a pith helmet.
