Hedonistic, practical, never bored with life, but easily bored.
Catholic range of interests and tastes, and up for new things. I do
not own slippers, a fast car, and I am not an embarrassment in
company. Having said that a group of friends did an autism test,
and yours truly was rather borderline. This proves nothing, but
could explain my dislike of crowds (such as festivals and the
like), and why I have at times felt I don't quite fit in the usual
categories. Not a weirdo, just a bit out of the ordinary would sum
it up ( and how certainly friends will describe me!).
Update Feb 2013- just done the What dog are you Test, and yes, it
told me what I already knew. That the ONLY dog I should share my
life with would have to be a Collie. I 'borrowed' one in autumn
half term, and we got on famously, but that was AFTER we'd had a
little chat about who should go out of the front door first- it was
decided it should be me after a bit of exuberance on Tess' part
caused us to both end up in a heap just outside.
What I’m doing with my life
Still working hard, keeping in touch with grown up offspring (who
all have jobs thank God), going on long car journeys, especially
France, Spain and Portugal. Trying to fit as much in as I can,
before it is too late. I have lived on my own for the past twenty
five years, during which for sixteen years I have had two
girlfiends at the same time, for eight years only one, and for two
periods of six months, none. I know the more conventional out there
would have great difficulty with my next statement, namely that I
am loyal, trustworthy and very honest. Man as a species was not
designed to be monogamous, but convention will not recognise this,
despite it being so very obvious in everyday life. Back to the
question above, I am working, holidaying, cycling, fucking,
listening to music (including the odd live gig), getting to grips
with a new & hideously expensive camera, and enjoying the
company of my two lovely girlfriends. Yes, they know about each
other, but don't know each other.
I’m really good at
After some disasterous efforts earlier in my life, I can now sus
folks out generally pretty accurately ( and see them for what they
are, rather than how it might outwardly appear).
Following recipes- the results are usually praised, but I'd never
describe myself as any sort of proper cook.
Sex- well I'm usually invited back, so something must be
Seeing comedy or absudity in many every day situations.
The first things people usually notice about me
Perhaps my smile ?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Very catholic music tastes, old movies, love eating (and cooking).
Some folks do go on about this; I need a book or film to keep me
interested throughout, and not to have too complex a plot (remember
the borderline autism!). But over the past ten years or so a good
history book is more my line, especially around 1870 ish to date.
And, I never fail to enjoy an old Giles annual !
The six things I could never do without
tea (leaves of course)
cyclamen in flower on my windowsill to see me through the
watching clouds, especially in a decent thunderstorm
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The movements of galaxies cannot be explained by the amount of
known matter with its gravitational pull; there isn't enough of it.
The deficit it appears cannot be accounted for by Black Holes, with
their immense gravitational pull, as there aren't enough of them.
So what's going on ? Enter 'Dark Matter'. Fascinating !
Religion- who on earth thought that a clever idea ? Why people get
blinkered by 'their' religion. How can you link commonsense stuff
like contraception or abortion, to what some deity apparently
wants? How it isn't sinful for a religion to make people feel
guilty because they have 'sinned'. Why does religion appear to
breed fanaticism- the 'Religious Right', Jihadism, Abortion Clinic
atrocities, and so on. And, if there is one God, how does dealing
in angels, lambs, cherubs and so on apply to the poor sods a few
parsecs away (let alone those further afield!). Come one mankind,
get real. Here endeth the first lesson (sorry, rant!).
Oh, and why do I have this peculiar profile name? Because I think
they are misunderstood, and this species is extinct !
On a typical Friday night I am
Sorry, shift workers don't recognise this question...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I keep a diary ?
Otherwise you'll have to find out
You should message me if
You suspect there is more to this guy than the crap he's written
here. Crap in the sense of how can you describe yourself
accurately, as others see quite different aspects, unappreciated by
And if you're looking for a friend with benefits (which isn't an
option in the 'I'm looking for' above), then I'd like to meet you;
a very good friend in that category has in the past year met a man
with whom she plans to remain monogamous, and who she plans to
marry. Seems I am now superfluous to her requirements ...!
Or you would like to hear from a nice fellah... go one, you know it
makes sense !
