Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have an odd need to figure out how the world works. This means I
spend a lot of time thinking about stuff and people watching,
although I'm not entirely sure I understand what I'm looking at a
lot of the time.
I'm kind of in a transitional place right now, so it's hard to say
anything concrete about myself. What this means, in essence, is
that I've figured out that there's things about myself that I'm not
overly fond of, so I'm taking steps to change them.
There is one immutable fact, that will hopefully be a selling
point: I am a geek, as a previous foray into the mire of trash
culture has apparently proven.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently employed as an IT worker in the Arts sector. It's not
as much fun as it sounds (unless it sounds like it's not
particularly fun but does have its moments - in which case, you're
spot on) and plotting my escape...
As soon as I know where and what I want to escape to.
In non-work terms, I get out an about on my bike when I can, partly
for the health benefits (see the above bit about taking steps to
improve my life) and partly because there are times where I can get
lost in it, especially if I'm riding alone listening to music and
letting go of the world.
I have developed something of an addiction to traveling around and
seeing new things, to the point where I pretty much only have a job
to finance my adventures.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I guess my secondary skill would be making things break in new and

Listing all of my favourite movies would take too long... I like a
lot of movies, but I'm not especially original. Random titles from
the DVD rack include Cube
, Donnie Darko
, Requiem For A Dream
Big Trouble In Little
. I also honestly think Crank
may be two of the finest movies
I'll pretty much listen to anything, but mostly New Order
and The Decemberists
... with a

I read a lot, mostly sci-fi

, Truman Capote

prose and Warren
, Brian Azzarello
, Garth Ennis
, Brian Wood
novels (I won't get snippy if you call them comics
). I also read a lot of pop economics
and the like) and recently finished The Omnivore's
I'm not too fussy about food, in fact, I'm quite lowbrow
gastronomically. Olives, Mushrooms and Avocado are all things I
have no time for, however.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. The occasional adventure 2. Something to read 3. People to talk
to (at, sometimes)
I'll let you know when I find the last 3.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I honestly don't know most of the time, but I do spend a lot of

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like dancing, but seriously doubt my ability.
Oh, and I never learned how to drive

You have a dog (preferably a dachshund) and don't mind that I'll
probably be more openly affectionate with it than you for a while.
