I'm a loyal, down-to-earth good conversationalist and yes I love my red lipstick :)
I love going out and having fun (especially like comedy, cinema and the odd bit of dancing), but sometimes I just need a night on the couch with a bottle of wine and a good box set.
I work full time in an office but I'm also a writer and I recently started an improv comedy course - I may not be great at it (yet?), but it is a laugh.
If you're interested in good conversation with plenty of laughing, aren't afraid of subtitles on a film and dream of going to Italy with someone special then we have a lot in common :)
Drop me a line and tell me your favourite Italian food (and guess mine!) and let's see if we have some chemistry.
What I’m doing with my life
Officey day job that's not particularly interesting but leaves me free to do things that are particularly interesting, like writing and learning Improv comedy.
I’m really good at
Being modest - so you'll have to get to know me, and then you can
answer this one yourself
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile. And not just if the people noticing are dentists.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love anything with a good plot (not that that really applies to music), so off the top of my head:
Books: Anything by Martin Cruz Smith, Anthony Burgess, Stephen King (though not the horror books), Janet Evanovich, John Irving.
Films: The Artist, The Thomas Crown Affair (Pierce Brosnan version), Casablanca, The Lives of Others, The Prestige, Die Hard.
TV: Mad Men, The Wire, 30 Rock, The West Wing, The Good Wife, the Danish version of "The Killing", Monty Python.
Music: U2, George Thorogood, Adele, She & Him and whatever takes my fancy on Spotify
Food: Saag Paneer in Diwali on Georges St, Pasta Pomodoro anywhere in Italy. Or surprise me!
The six things I could never do without
A friend for conversation
A dream for chasing
A book for the bus
And, judging by my house, Ikea
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why do they bother putting the figs in the fig rolls, is it just so
they can call them fig rolls? What is the 8th habit of highly
effective people because I don't know if the first 7 are working
for me. What's another word for Thesaurus?
On a typical Friday night I am
Being a total Friday Fader I am at home on the couch with a glass
of wine catching up on some good TV or a film, and looking forward
to going out on Saturday :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That my superficially conventional life is merely a cover for my
secret identity as an international spy and that the launch codes
for missiles on three continents are hidden in my freezer. Wait! If
you've read this then I'm going to have to kill you! And I should
probably defrost my freezer!
You should message me if
You have a picture (of yourself!)
You understand that "Hi how u" does not constitute witty banter
YOU DO NOT LIVE IN AMERICA (seriously guys, I'm sure you're very nice, but it's really not going to happen, surely we both know this)
You know how they get the figs into the fig rolls
