I once managed to make Anne Robinson collapse into a fit of giggles
while filming a TV quiz show, so I may have a sense of humour
hidden away somewhere. I'm interested in both arts and science, and
in sharing new experiences with someone I can chat to freely. Can
supply the wit if you bring the verve.
What I’m doing with my life
Starting a new job in the new year, so am preparing for that. I can
act fairly well, and get involved in the local amateur drama scene,
recently moving into directing. I like to keep myself busy,
learning new things, reading up on areas of knowledge I'm not sure
about, having new experiences, and perhaps most importantly,
sharing those experiences. (I'll share my tea as well if asked
I’m really good at
Being friendly and affectionate. People say I'm kind and honest.
There's probably a bit of truth in that, mostly because I can't
tell fibs without blushing. I enjoy reading, though my reading
habits are perpetually disorganised, I usually have at least three
volumes on the go at any time.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmmm, lack of hair and a wistful smile maybe.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
For books, it's classic literature and plays, hard science fiction,
some action, I'm happy to try anything.
Films, similar, but don't like horror or anything too
Music, enjoy Beatles, Bowie, many classical types such as Bach,
Beethoven, and Mozart. Willing to listen to pretty much anything
except Barry Manilow's 'Copacabana'.
Food, love pretty much everything except rhubarb. Can hardly spell
rhubarb, let alone enjoy it!
The six things I could never do without
Learning (it's a lifelong thing with me)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Many things. I am genuinely fascinated by most aspects of
knowledge, arts, science, politics, business, technology, culture.
Not such a fan of sport though, but perhaps I could be convinced.
On a typical Friday night I am
...thinking of something different to do.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can pretty much guarantee that I won't try to play games with
you. Honesty is the only thing that works for me.
You should message me if
you want to see the video of me making Anne Robinson fall about
laughing...or if you want to see if I can make you laugh...or if
you want to test my general knowledge...or if you want to know a
little more about me.
