Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Pixies like to live colourful lives... swing dancing til dawn
(latterly the Pumpkin Coach sometimes keeps it closer to 11.59)...
or diving into icy British seas.... or gazing in wonder at the
African dawn surrounded by a pink chirruping haze of
Bee-eaters...or deciding - last minute - to run up Table Mountain
for the sheer hell of it - then being almost incapable of boarding
a plane the next day (legs didn't even hurt - they just refused to
They like theatre that takes their breath away - modern or
Shakespeare (not so into Lloyd Webber)... all-consuming novels...
and music: festivals with wellies or Jools Holland on the sofa - or
even better anything live/acoustic at home (if you happen to play
an instrument to any level you will always have an appreciative
Pixies are also into trailing London's lesser known culture spots
(have you discovered secret cinema yet? I'm dying to go) or long
rambling Welsh walks with the anticipation of steaming mugs of
chocolate - or a crisp cider (seasonally depending!) with friends
who make you laugh til your eyes stream and cheeks and ribs
They love meditation and tai chi - particularly on a sun-kissed
beach... or lying in the park on a summer's day looking for cloud
pictures and dreaming of moving to France (wherein the
dilapidatedly rusty French would become immediately fluent)... lazy
summer barbeques ... wintry roasts...and racing around muddy parks
with friends' children or chatting long into the night with fellow
They've got a bit of a hippy edge and are big into planet-saving
(although darn it tis hard when you aeroplanes take you to such
pretty places - and pixie wings do get tired...)
They enjoy new people's company - and are up for a bit of
light-hearted flirtatious fun. They also believe that a full life
is about the special somebodies who are loved warts and all... who
smile at idiosyncrasies... and understand to tread carefully: for
you tread upon my dreams...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Pixie is in a teeny bit of a crazed dissertation and exam-fuelled
place for the next few months: final year of a training that
started 7 years ago and will surface again in July 2014. Slightly
wedded to the words til then so forgive me if I don't get back to
you for a wee while! Like Arnie, I'll be back...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Confusing those who think I have long legs for a pixie!
But mostly, enjoying life, laughing and making friends -
particularly small ones (which covers both bases I guess - as I
clearly get on with fellow sprites - but also love kids)...
.... jumping in feet first to new places, situations and adventures
- I'm always ready to have a go (mostly a good thing - although
don't ask me about the rock climbing - actually do - it's kinda
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well it used to be the waist-length hair - something I'm wondering
about growing back (what do you think lads?) Now? Well I don't
believe I've ever met me.
I'll pass Mr Mac over to my friend....

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Asking me to name favourite books makes me realise how much I've
been reading to study and not pleasure these past few years - which
seems extraordinary since fictional reading has always been my
ultimate escape. Most recently read 'A God Of Small Things' -
Arundhati Roy - absolutely wonderful and defines all that a good
book needs: incredible scene painting which is so delicious you
savour each taste like rich decadent dessert - alongside a
fantastic story and characters you feel you come home to.
Oh - and Sue Gerhardt's 'Why Love Matters' is a favourite from a
studying perspective: layman's neuroscience - tis wonderful.
Movies and music - well... I'm great at forgetting names but I love
wee indie films and am a lover of most music from jazz and soul to
the classics - taking a detour through the odd bit of indie,
acoustic and rock...
Love food - and infamous for my "exploratory ways" in new cultures.
(I'd pretty much rather starve than find the first KFC joint I can
in a foreign country....) As long as it's Marmite free (and not
fast food) I'm up for trying it. One of these days I'd love to go
to one of those restaurants that has all the tiny taste morsels for
tantalising your tastebuds.... mmmmm....
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
First two would be loved ones and cuddles,
second might be the eye mask/ear plugs/ soft scarf as pillow
combination which means I can - and do - sleep anywhere (can that
be one 'thing'?!)
then it'd be a passport
and a journal for drawing and painting (didn't need a camera in
and the last is probably a truly decadent uber dark, rich hot

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
sometimes dancing, certainly laughing... could be hanging out with
my house mates... maybe pottering about London, or p'raps sofa
snoozing with Jools Holland or a movie...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I sleep talk. It has had some unusual repercussions.
