My self-summary
I'm looking to meet someone that's fun and funny. And intelligent. And hot. Clearly I don't ask for much.
What I’m doing with my life
A couple of years ago I left my job in publishing/advertising sales, and am now studying English Literature at the University of Edinburgh. I have not regretted this choice for a single second.

When I'm not studying or working I train at karate, attempt to rock climb, and occasionally ski. I've also recently developed a love of surfing, and am very keen to fit in as many trips as possible before the sea freezes over for the season.
I’m really good at
Using unlikely objects to open bottles.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've honestly no idea, though I have been told that I'm usually heard before I'm seen.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot, partly because of my degree and partly because I love it. I've fairly eclectic tastes. For example, I was just reading Don Quixote, but had to put it aside to read Kick Ass 2.

Musical taste is similarly varied. I'm a big fan of Pink Floyd, Alan Parsons Project, White Stripes, King Crimson, Philip Glass, Elbow, Gorillaz, Midnight Juggernauts, Band of Skulls... the list is nearly endless.

I watch far, far too many films to try and pick out favourites. As for shows, I know it's pretty much obligatory but I have been loving Game of Thrones (having devoured all the books in a few weeks), and have more than a passing obsession with Archer. Firefly also deserves a mention here, as does the timeless classic that is Garth Marenghi's Darkplace. I've also recently discovered It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and managed to burn through it in a ridiculously short space of time.

I love food, and have to say I'm a fantastic cook, nay, chef. Also perfectly happy with a Dominos, or some other kind of junk food which contains your calories for the week in one sitting.
The six things I could never do without
There is, of course, the Holy Trinity of alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine. Aside from that, friends, music, and apparently the Oxford comma.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
This varies greatly, and often depends on what has annoyed or vexed me recently. There's no particular topic which dominates my thoughts; what I'm thinking about tends to vacillate between my immediate concerns, things I've recently read or watched, and completely inconsequential matters. Other than that I'm pretty much focussed on what the weekend holds.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working. This is a relatively new arrangement and one I am not best pleased with. On a typical Saturday night, however, I will be doing something with my friends. Whatever this may be it will involve alcohol.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sorry, but you're going to need to ply me with drinks first.
You should message me if
The information listed above hasn't put you off. Bonus points if you'd like to go on some kind of activity date.
