Things I don't like ETERNITY EDITION:
- The Invisible Hand
- Mick Hucknall
- An empty cheeseboard
- Horse racing. If you wear a funny hat on Cup Day I will hate
- temporary flag tattoos on cheeks. If you've ever done this I will
attack you with a hammer.
- Moustache-play. If your idea of the offbeat amounts to applying a
felt moustache and mugging, I'll send in the drones.
Currently have facial hair as seen in supplementary pic.
Lack of dog in life suddenly a problem. If you have a mutt, get in
touch! I will lavish you both with affection.
- UPDATE: Possibility of adoption. Whippersnapper with underbite
and silly walk. Will know soon!
STOP THE PRESSES!
I impulse bought a duck. Problem solved.
- I am suddenly and spectacularly 'of independent means'*.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Studying and working part-time in the city.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
An excess ascending:
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The digital news media.
The elegance of Lee Hazlewood's songwriting.
Love and desire.
When and where I can get a drink.
Which of my friends I'd eat first.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
With friends at a bar or house.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Is anything - I am radically transparent, message me a question if
you like and I'll publish it here.
1. My top matches when I first made an account here were my
housemate and someone I've slept with before. That's quite an
2. My name is Will.
3. I while away tram rides with the OkC questionnaire. I have now
provided a staggering 1580 answers, so if you want a measure on my
bedroom proclivities or political fancies, take a look.
4. I've been noodling around the profiles here for a few months
now, and particular mainstays of the write-ups are beginning to
4a) Coffee. Yes you drink coffee, and your dependence on it
requires you to drink it before doing anything else - Hooray! But
it's not 1975 and coffee consumption is no longer a cultural
4b) You love to laugh - that is because it is an evolutionary
imperative at the very baseline of the human experience. Maybe you
should mention your opposable thumbs too.
5. All my dreams are lucid dreams.
6. The start of Bachelor Kisses makes me cry every time I hear it.
Grant McLennans death moved me so much more that I could have
anticipated, and this song in particular catapults me back to 2006
and a Brunswick sharehouse, listening and sobbing and mourning an
almost famous person I'd never met.
7. Am probably here for friends and sex more than a Significant
Other. Got a pretty high relationship threshold due to excellent
last girlfriend, but these things can escalate. UPDATE: I am ready
for true love.
8. My OkC enemy rating with women of Asian origin is uniformly,
abysmally high. What's the deal? Why do you hate me so much!
Really, operators are standing by.
