Like all normal people, especially British people, I hate trying to
talk myself up, but I shall attempt to do so. I am with no fanfare
a bearded geek, I enjoy all the normal things like going to the
cinema, watching a film at home, reading a good book or going out
and having a few drinks with my friends. On top of these thing I
also enjoy gaming in many many forms, be it playing online and
chatting to some friends or sitting round a table socializing while
playing a board game with a few drinks.
What I’m doing with my life
At the moment I am unemployed after having been made redundant and
I am looking for inspiration in what to do next.
I’m really good at
Games, particularly of the strategy variety. Baking, I never have
any complaints anyway. Procrastination, which coincidentally makes
me good at getting stuff done at the last minute!
The first things people usually notice about me
My height I guess, I'm pretty tall at 6'2"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I love all things Terry Pratchett, at the moment I am
eagerly dreading the next George R Martin instalment of A Song of
Ice and Fire here is to hoping there isn't another 5 year wait
between books. Also have just been rereading my way through Iain M
Banks Culture novels and once again thoroughly enjoying them.
Films: I can sit down and enjoy just about anything, most recently
saw Dredd and enjoyed it. Favourite of all time would be a hard
question, ask me if you want to know.
Music: I like rock and metal, but the stuff I find myself listening
to most of all, is classical and instrumental music from game and
film soundtracks, really depends on my mood!
The six things I could never do without
I don't think I could manage without gadgets, all those little
things that make life easier.
Certainly my computer, which without the internet, the sum total of
human knowledge and a fair amount of ignorance as well but you
gotta take the bad with the good, wouldn't be anywhere near as
A good book as long as it is interesting I'll read it.
My friends who seem to be on a mission to make my life as
interesting as possible.
The pub, up there for one of humanities greatest invention.
Diet Coke, I'm serious.... I think I am addicted to the stuff...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Probability and strategy, I know it is the most exciting
The characters I will be playing and exciting adventure I can have
all from the safety of a dining room table.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing boardgames, card games or computer games, possibly
role-playing or going out with some friends for a quiet drink, I am
the life and soul of the party.
No wait that other thing, I like to talk and I find most of the
usual haunts to be entirely antithetical to that pursuit.
