Fulltime barman, romantic and hopeless optimist.
You'll usually find me: singing extremely loudly to bratty punk (tm), reading, working (ie, getting young pretty things drunk), and cooking, faffing about online, gaming (mostly on xbox, mostly some form of stealthy game where I can at least pretend to have some sense of balance or coordination).
Music's a big part of my life - listening, playing, gigging...at the moment, spending a fair amount of time playing bass, trying to work out what the hell an arpeggio is. Recently picked up electric guitar.
Bit of a geek when it comes down to it - I read anything, but do have probably more comics than a grown man really should, but anyone who holds the opinion that comics aren't a legitimate form of literature clearly has never read Sandman.
Been working up in the Lonely Poet for just over a year now, where I spend far too much of my time, but they let my make my own cocktail lists, which is nice. I do genuinely love my job, which means a lot of very strange looks, me being a bit too happy when I'm actually working, and a rather pathetic attempt at a wage, but given the choice between a well paid job and one i actually enjoy, I know what I want. I'm currently supposed to be writing my first proper, professional cocktail guide for the bar, but am very easily distracted.
Currently reading Moby Dick (which I am determined to finish THIS time..), the Dune saga, far too much Spiderman and American Vampire, which is genuinely the first decent new take on vampires this century. Apart from Buffy. Though that may have just been Sarah Michelle Gellar.

I am Introverted, Idealistic, and Romantic.
