Please read: Sorry to start off on a negative, but if you're going
to message me, please make sure to read my profile, see what we
have in common and try to start a conversation. Messages just
saying "Hi", "Hi there, or "Hi my name is [insert name here]" don't
have a lot of effort invested and say to me that you're not
I'm quite shy, but if you let me open up I can be quite creative
and some would say I have a pretty good sense of humour; I can be a
bit pedantic at times (and VERY pedantic at others XD); but I'm
always willing to help out a friend in need, and like to try and be
of some small assistance with problems, even if it's just being a
shoulder to cry on. I attempt to be polite as far as possible, and
strive for diplomacy. I realise I tend to speak formally sometimes
but you can blame Enid Blyton for that (so don't let's split hairs
old thing, what what? XD).
What I’m doing with my life
Currently working for Cornwall County Council's call centre (yay for alliteration! :D). It's not the most exciting job ever, but a job's a job, n'est pas? I'm something of an aspiring writer/actor - currently rehearsing in the local panto.
I’m really good at
I can most likely pronounce that the most truthful statement about
the person who is accustomed to references with the perpendicular
pronoun, is that he does (or at least, appear to have) a not
inconsiderable faculty when it comes to the articulate manipulation
of our post-Norman lexical machinations.

The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Anything, really. I daydream a hell of a lot x3
On a typical Friday night I am
IM'ing with people or watching TV or soemthing - a nice quiet night
in as I lack the local friends to go out to pubs and stuff with.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have never measured my private parts and have no wish to :P
You should message me if
