I'm a fairly sorted kind of girl I think. No madness here (so
I'm a young looking 51, have been told I look 10 yrs younger, which
seems unfair as im not remotely health conscious or anything - but
hey, all good :-)
I'm reasonably savvy, slim, blonde and sort of quirky I guess.
Unfortunately also quite clumsy, can knock anything over (it's a
skill), have no sense of direction, like to laugh at stupid stuff,
rage at social injustices (quietly, tho), cry at documentaries
about people who overcome the odds in life, and wallow in tragic
black & white movies. According to Myers briggs, i'm an INTJ. I
like to go out to gigs (music nerd alert), movies, comedy nites,
but am also happy plonked on the sofa with a good book or searching
for driftwood and shells on the beach.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a HR administrator
I’m really good at
Dancing (would like to have been a pro), listening and talking,
writing stuff (some poetry, some general stuff),yoga, meditation,
making people laugh - not always intentionally :-), hugs.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair (blonde, longish), long legs ( you're really tall!! etc.
but I'm actually not that tall really), good smile, firm handshake
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Fave book is boswell's life of Samuel Johnson, also liked Anthony keidis autobiography. Also a big fan of David Sedaris, Dave Eggars (anyone called Dave really). Fave movies are Alfie, The Apartment, Into The Wild, Lost in translation, American Beauty, The Deer Hunter, The (swedish) dragon tattoo films, Most Woody Allen films also welcome - esp Annie Hall. I like good channel 4 documentaries like 'the bridge', most things that Werner Herzog is involved in, and lots of comedy stuff like curb your enthusiasm, nighty night, blackadder, black books, IT Crowd, Cardinal Burns, brass eye etc. Still miss Bill Hicks.....
As for music: starsailor, radiohead, Fleetfoxes, Foals, the divine Nick Drake, Jeff Buckley, Chris Whitley, James Vincent McMorrow, James Blake, Feist, Joni Mitchell, Depeche mode, Johnny Marr, Alabama 3, Lemonjelly, and many many others...
Like most types of food really, fave is prob Italian and Thai.
General Dislikes: Ice Cream Vans and Clowns. When I die there will most likely be an Ice Cream Van full of clowns parked outside the front door - whose very existence will have precipitated my untimely demise.
The six things I could never do without
My iPad, books, music, heat, love and hope :-)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ridiculous stuff really, like why people act the way they do and
why they are the way they are. I find people interesting and funny,
I guess. I also think about family, whether the people I love will
be ok etc. normal stuff.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually knackered and to be found on the sofa either watching
undemanding tv or listening to music. Either that or playing pool
badly with my brother or (if the week has been v bad) meeting my
friends for a drink and a chat.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm quite shy, but do try to hide it :-)
You should message me if
If you think you might like me.....
