Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've crossed that dangerous line into the thirties territory now,
the point at which one really should have a handle on how the rest
of life is going to turn out.
Thus, I smile and act like I know what's going on.
Quiet and shy (although I may prefer insightful and contemplative
as descriptors), I've never talked about myself for long enough to
develop a decent self-summary. As you can no doubt tell.
I've been here in Exeter for over a decade now, having escaped
South Wales (you know, the part where people don't actually speak
Welsh) to go to university.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I hospitalise people!
As in, I book people's appointments for clinics.
Of course, since I only deal with outpatients, I guess I don't
really hospitalise anyone, but don't spoil my fun!
I do work in the knee department. I tell people this when I answer
the 'phone. Therefore I'm a man who says 'knee'!
Those weren't funny. I know they weren't. I can do better than
The first things people usually notice about me

My hair is long and unkempt. It used to be kempt.
No, I kid. It was never kempt.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I used to read a lot when I was younger. There was The Hobbit at an
impressionable age, but once I found out that Lord of the Rings was
overblown and dull I began searching through all manner of pulp
fantasy nonsense for anything better. Hooray for Elric and the Book
of the New Sun, right?
But anyway, I eventually moved on to short stories of the horrific
or steampunky nature, even if the definition of the latter annoys
me sometimes. Also, as I've gotten older I've started to read more
comics and graphic novels. PICTURES! Now while I do read worthy and
clever stuff like Atomic Robo and The Unwritten, DC and Marvel pap
still finds its way into my hands...
Rule number one for good movies is that there has to be at least
some small sliver of impossible, unrealistic madness at the core of
the thing. Stories based on real life are dull; escapism is where
it's at! Also, the animated Transformers movie had a great
impression on me at a young age. The live-action Transfoermers
movies have had a less pleasant influence. Urge to kill
Anything with zombies, robots or dragons in it is worth at least a
watch. I like old westerns as well (stetsons are cool), and am
partial to anime.
My television watching has gone right down. From the glory days of
'Murder One' through 'Buffy' and 'Angel', 'Lost' kinda killed
serialised American TV for me. Only the ludicrous amounts of blood
and sex in 'Spartacus' makes it watchable. Um, that and getting to
see Xena's tits is a present to a pubescent me.
Oh, 'Game of Thrones' is great. Of course I watch 'Doctor
There are more bad episodes of 'The Simpsons' now than there are
good ones. That is a sad fact of life, and a point that I will
defend to the death.
Music and food? Pass. Neither interests me immensely. The music
thing normally surprises people - who assume that my long hair can
only mean that I'm a mosher - and the food thing is no surprise to
anyone - on account o' me being so thin.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The numbers one to six are very important. Count 'em on one hand!
Base twelve is where it's at!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Hail Pharaoh of Darkness, Hail Nyarlathotep, Cthulhu fhtagn,

probably gaming. Not just that more socially acceptable video
gaming, neither; I play card games, board games and tabletop
role-playing games as well.
Those things also pretty much define my social interactions! Oh...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I do not own a mobile 'phone. I'm not a fan of talking over the
telephone anyway, and the mobile variant is just an excuse for
people to promise things without really committing; knowing that
they can just call ahead to cancel things.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'll reply if you message, which could be an encouragement or a
deterrent, depending on what you thought of the above statements.
It's possible that I may be better able to explain myself through
conversation and when prompted than when having to fill out an
essay on self.
I'll certainly babble less.
