Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Musician with a house and day job(paradoxical,no?)alright-music
geek. I have my own house, car,garden,chickens and too many
guitars. Although I'm a bit of a homebody in a fixer home it's good
to get out now and again .
I like to read books that won't let me go,watch DVDs that are a bit
left field;documentaries and angsty European arthouse stuff....or
even British comedy,when I can find any. If I can't,I simply invent
my own. I like making people laugh.Although I can tread water with
the small talk I'd prefer to have a conversation that is closer to
'meaningful' than spout fluff to pass the time.
I also work nights,three a week,leaving me a fair bit of free
time-the yard is almost weeded-OK,more than halfway there!
I've been eating healthier and cut out drinking but otherwise I'm
in good shape(B.T.W. I'm not an alkie or a 7th day adventist).No
fast food . Sports are generally a turn off for
me-sorry,semi-sedentary cyclist here.
No tats or piercings which seems to count as 'different' around
these parts, although I do have chickens and a herb
garden.Ideally,it would be nice to meet someone who's literate,
funny and musical,online even-who knows.......
