*Blonde with a sense of humour seeking future one-and-only*
I'm a loyal, down-to-earth good conversationalist who never leaves
the house without my red lipstick.
I'm equally comfortable going out or staying in, especially if the
staying in involves a good box set like Mad Men or The Wire. (Well,
what's a profile without a cliché that's also true ;)
I work full time in an office but I still have time to do some
writing, run a small online business - and hang out with my Mr
If you're interested in good conversation, 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.
PS - Sorry, I don't reply to people with no picture, and I don't
reply to "Hi how u" messages either. If you make a bit more effort
than that then I'm very good at replying!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Officey day job that's not particularly interesting but leaves me

I’m really good at

I studied film so I have lots of favourites, but off the top of my
head - The Artist, The Thomas Crown Affair (the remake),
Casablanca, Brick, The Lives of Others, The Prestige, Die Hard, The
Life of Brian. I'm not afraid of subtitles (although I've just
realised none of these have them).
I'm also a fan of good TV - by which I mean Mad Men, The Wire, 30
Rock, The West Wing, The Good Wife, the Danish version of "The
Killing" (oh and that does have subtitles).
Music? I like U2, George Thorogood, Adele, She & Him (I've been
advised that my taste in music lacks imagination. It's a fair cop
guv, but I've recently gotten Spotify so maybe that will improve
Food? Saag Paneer in Diwali on Georges St, Pasta Pomodoro anywhere
in Italy. Or surprise me!

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

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

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
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
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
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!
