[*Currently beardless; it feels weird]
Although I've lived in Seattle/the Seattle area for over half my life at this point, to quote the old QANTAS ad, "I still call Australia hoooooooooooome."
Starting to get back into working out after a considerable layoff (due to laziness).
At some point in the next two years I need to decide whether I want to stay in the US as my green card expires at the end of 2017 (current answer: definitely maybe).
I'm a little like the old English all-rounder - passable at many things, excellent at nothing.
Except I suppose I am excellent at failing to practice guitar and bass.
If you mustache me a question about facial hair...my eyes will probably start to glaze over, so please no.
The Cornetto trilogy, Pan's Labyrinth, Monty Python (Holy Grail, Life of Brian, Meaning of Life, etc)...still have a soft spot for the old Beverly Hills Cop movies...
Community, Parks & Rec, 30 Rock, Game of Thrones, The Wire, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, etc
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, The Living End, Cold Chisel, Steve Earle and Midnight Oil probably round out the top five playlist staples, but I'll listen to almost anything.
Bonus points go to bluesy/rockin' guitar, identifiable lyrics and/or sweet bass lines.
Mates' bands - Po' Brothers, Blood Drugs, Kingswood Estate, Dogstrum.
Dinuguan FTW. I'll eat most things, but prefer savory over sweet. Also don't mind vegetarian food, but I'm not about to be vegetarian myself - pretty much all my favourite dishes involve meat.
- You're open to rambling conversations about books, TV, random ephemera, etc.
- You can show me places or teach me things I mightn't have thought of.
