My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I think holding hands is the sweetest thing, I'll give you a lick of my ice cream but then I'll smoosh it on your nose, I'll laugh at myself and others because of some innocuous thing then stop so I don't offend anyone, I'll pretend my sense of humour isn't steeped in harsh truths and absurdity but only until I like you.

Right now I'm trying to meet people with a penchant for silly banter, the ability to be tactfully honest, know a good self deprecating joke when they say it and aren't afraid to show some stoic courage when the occasion calls. So, basically I'm looking for Batman... but major bonus points if you like making noises when explaining things, bonus bonus points for hand gestures.

I don't believe in taking myself too seriously, but I do think it's important to have appreciation and ambition for what you want and what you do while still allowing yourself to be open to new ideas and opinions, or reconsidering your own.

What I think is important are friendships, having the temperament for self reflection with realistic ambitions and personal growth, as well as ideas and discussions about all those things that matter while applying critical thinking but still being able to laugh at the things you're passionate about. If not just to find out what kind of muffins are best (raspberries and white chocolate), elsewise for making myself feel smrat.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working as an artisan baker, unlike most in professional kitchens my ego is kept in check with generous slices of humble pie and my vices are, but not limited to, video games, lexiconical augmentation, the internet and the drug known as nostalgia.

My aim is to open my own bakery one day, selling my lovingly crafted pastries and breads. Do you know how good a bakery smells in the morning? It's like happiness took residence in your face.

I spent some time in London then Paris/Lyon (Salut!) early in 2013 visiting friends, eating delicious pastries in front of old world vistas and ignoring the cold. I don't like the cold.

I'm working towards getting to Canada. Way up there, out of the way. I dunno, I think there's something important there waiting for me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Avoiding cliches. I'm just a down to earth easy going guy that's good at listening, ya know?
- Cooking; I bet I can cook better than you. Bet you $5.
- Making myself laugh. There's a high statistical probability that you also like to laugh; +1 for shared interests.
- Throwing flour; Seriously, this is a lot of fun.
- People watching; It's like a sitcom without the laugh track but more tragedy and fashion faux pas'.
- Finding belly button lint; I don't know, it's like a factory down there.
- Pulling out nose hairs; cause sneezing is like the... third? best feeling in the world.

I'm also good at eating feijoas, hugs, not being serious, and dressing myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Glasses. Poorly parted hair. A quiet confidence.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Dune, Cloudstreet, The Alchemist, The unbearable lightness of being. I mostly enjoy stories that could be real, but are really personal events filled with emotion, despair and redemption that turn out to be origin stories. I don't really know authors which makes it difficult when discussing books.

Movies: Wreck-it Ralph, Back to the future, Terminator 2, Groundhog day, The Iron giant, Sunshine. Scifi and adventure to impress my inner child.

TV: Peep show, Breaking bad, Futurama, Band of brothers, Cosmos, Game of thrones, QI. I'm currently trying to stop myself marathoning The Wire. It's not working out too well.

Music: Smashing pumpkins, The National, Matchbox Twenty, Shihad, Jose Gonzalez, Pearl jam; Rocking, acoustic, upbeat, melancholic, and some times heavy tunes.
Current song on loop in my head; Maps - Yeah Yeah Yeahs:

Food: I have an unashamed love affair with food. It amazes me the literal thousands of flavours, textures and combinations we can experience in our mouths. From Duck a l'Orange to cheeseburgers to milo, food is endlessly enjoyable. Except oysters. Fuck oysters.

I'm easily plied with good foodstuffs; Make me a delicious risotto and I'll love you forever. FO-EFF-AH,
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Pillows. Comfy. Comfy is good.
2. Daydreaming; It's like shower thoughts, but wherever you want.
3. Milk. This is strange for some, but I REALLY like milk.
4. Crescendos. The build, the peak, the crash. Like a modern day love story.
5. Perspective, apply liberally.
6. Kips. Glorious unrepentant kips.

A healthy dose of petrichor is a close 7; It's like cocaine for the nose.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- Cakes and tarts and breads and pastries and puddings and and and... you know, the important things.
- Friends and people. They're kind of a big deal.
- My hair. It demands attention.
- Semantic saturation. Toes, toes, toes, toes, toes, toes, toes.
- Predicaments, plausible and absurd. Mostly both.
- What's for dinner. Possibly cereal.
- Sex and sexuality. Maybe this should be at the top.
- Sonder. It's philosophically sobering.
- Sometimes I'll wait a whole two weeks to talk about something just so I can legitimately use the word 'fortnight'.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Staying inside until somebody finds me, confessing to lying a lot, trying my hardest to start a war, trying to keep my clothes on or at least saying I did, not believing in naked plans, questioning my maladies and losing my keys.

Seriously. I prefer house parties to raves, beer to hard liquor and watching movies to dancing/awkward shuffling. I'll kick off for an occasion, and that's an occasion in and of itself; I once started a drunken Twister game that didn't end in an orgy. Amazing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not nearly as perky as this profile may suggest, I actually find over enthusiasm bewildering and exhausting, much like sun stroke and fashion trends.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to put some motherfuckin' whimsy in my life.

You can give me bad ideas.

You think we could swap stories.
