I have swag, but in an ironic way.
What I’m doing with my life
...is a question I ask myself on a daily basis. Currently I spend
my time staring at various rectangular objects - computer monitor,
laptop, phone, tv, cinema screen, books etc. I get paid for it,
though, so that helps.
I’m really good at
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Birdsong, Atonement, I imagine I'll put Les Miserables here
when I finish it which feels like never.
Movies: Groundhog Day is arguably the best film ever made. Of
recent efforts, Silver Linings Playbook is good.
Shows: If we're talking TV, then The Wire and The West Wing. I
don't watch much TV. If we're talking theatre, then Les Mis.
Music: alt-J, Kavinsky, Jake Bugg, Justice, Daft Punk and almost
everything from the 80s.
Food: I've been vegetarian for 16 years. The non preachy sort. Have
a horse steak if you want.
The six things I could never do without
Kindle, my feet, good food, swag, spotify, headphones
On a typical Friday night I am
Spending too much money in Franks/The Playhouse/The Murderers/The
Plough/Belgian Monk/Birdcage/Cuba Rev or complaining that I don't
have enough money to go to any of the above. I am also avoiding
Prince of Wales round, occasionally seeing a film, sometimes on a
train, sometimes eating, sometimes doing nothing and recently
falling out of a shower.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I got so drunk recently I was sick in a taxi, again at home,
then fell out of the shower with such force I buggered up my
It's ok though. The taxi driver didn't notice, and after 3 months I
no longer have a limp.
I also do yoga. But who the hell admits that?
You should message me if
If you like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain.
