Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to talk about stuff I'm interested in - which, lets be
honest, is most things. I like to listen to people talk about their
passions as well.
I'm pretty light-hearted and tend to joke about things even when
they're important to me. I don't take things too seriously To be
honest, it's probably a personality flaw.
I like music, art gallerys, the cinema, museums (especially weird
little ones,) aquariums and wildlife reserves, but I don't go out
nearly as often as I'd like to. I prefer pubs and cafes to clubs,
but I do like a good dance - even though I'm terrible at it!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Spending too much of it on the internet and playing games. Also
working and all that bollocks.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Wasting time researching stuff that catches my interest, but is
of no real use.
- Remembering the useless stuff I've researched - like the
cognitive capacity of crows, or why cold water is denser than ice,
or the etymology of the word cappucino - while forgetting peoples'
names and birthdays.
- Cooking (well, quite good. I wouldn't say I'm a master but I at
least know the arcane art of making tasty stuff out of whatever I
have to hand.)
- Chatting nonsense.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
- That I am very ginger. That I'm a little creeped out by people
who fall over themselves to tell me how much they love redheads...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

films, or books.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:
- The internet
- Genuinely good coffee
- Great food
- A decent pair of boots.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Birds, astronomy, space travel, chemistry, etymology, entomology,
animal behaviour, the evolution of the precision grip in hominids,
anthropology, physics, pharmacology, logic, the structure and
function of the human brain, fish, fossils, dinosaurs, how to make
the perfect beef rendang, virology, computing, history, prehistory;
and how even though I know a little about many things, I wish I
knew a lot more about everything.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm often late to places because I met a cat on the way and stopped
to make friends.
Also I really fucking love birds. You think you like birds? You're
wrong, I like them more. Birds are incredible.
