Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Cigarette smoking through a meal of scrambled eggs,
scallops, and strawberry cheescake. Pears, a bag of marijuana,
.. oh no wait thats tasting notes on scotch, perhaps
I should try personality tasting notes. "Geeky
with a side order of crazy;
sarcastic with a soft gooey centre, complex but easily enjoyed by
those with intelligence."
I am soon to become a transplant to San Francisco, after having
been a transplant
to Los Angeles. I remain
however fiercely English and proud of it.
Why do it again, why up and move? Interesting question; which can
only be figured out with the thought that, well, life is too short
not to have an adventure.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Plotting, planning, scheming
For work I build search engines for people, strangely that seems to
be what I do often for leisure, some people may think that mad but
its fun to do a hobby for money. Kinda like being a pro sports
player I guess
I am also attempting to figure out how to play go
long distance with my best friend.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making seriously hard things look really easy whilst at the same
time having this knack for making really simple things look like I
am examining them if I am a visitor from mars.
The cliche would be, I am really good at cooking, but I am ! My
curry is awesome ! I have done the pro-chef thing once in a
previous incarnation and, whilst I don't enjoy the
lifestyle, I do sometimes enjoy doing elaborate
and screwball technical cooking.
I am also good at things that would be described as "reducing a
LR-parse tree into an Finite-State-Transducer", but I think that
might just be something my mind came up with after I hit my head on
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Anything of the English persuasion,
especially people like Eddie Izzard, Jimmy Carr MonkeyDust
(I guess anything surreal and dark)
Music Lots of diversity, lots of electronica, quite a bit
, with a bent towards some seriously obscure
I have however been taking to a range of classical music
I will eat anything tasty, if I can convince
it to stay still I might eat it. If I was forced at gunpoint to
pick one countries cuisine for the rest of my life I would have to
go with italian , british, korean, japanese, indian ...
Having cooked most things, I find that I am forever intrigued by
what I have not mastered.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
scotch ? :P
My keychain, to many its a lump of metal, to me its a personal
talisman from a previous life.
My bag for much the same reason, its less about the contents and
more about the fact I have lived out of it multiple times, on
multiple continents, used it as a pillow, occasionally a weapon and
sometimes stored stuff in it when it has seemed dry enough.
My books, I would probably die trying to save them in a fire.
The computer I write this on, I know its what everyone says, but
its more of an mirror on my life than I sometimes care to admit.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Future of mankind, why we don't live on the moon, and why I don't
yet have a paranoid android
Oh and what I want for lunch, that is seriously the hardest part of
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hacking on opensource,

Or playing vollyball.
