My self-summary
What's big and small at the same time? A BIG EGG

When I was a kid of about 3 or 4, Morrissey - Everyday Is Like Sunday was my favourite song. It's probably no surprise I turned out how I have.

Seeing "defiantly" used in place of "definitely", whether the result of autocorrect or not, REALLY boils my piss.

Probably shouldn't open my profile with two grumpy statements like that. MY FRIENDS THINK I'M LOVELY HONESTLY. You know, those friends that aren't in any of my pictures.
What I’m doing with my life
Some mix of working, gaming, reading, beer-hunting, and generally trying to keep my shit together.

Most of all, resisting the urge to rub my face on the frosted glass panes in the building I work in
I’m really good at
Remembering things. I have the sort of memory which impresses and frightens people in equal measure.
The first things people usually notice about me
Fat. Glasses. A distinct lack of fashion sense. Some attempt at facial hair. I DON'T KNOW
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Weird fiction/horror, preferably in the form of short stories. Pessimistic philosophy when I'm in a grump phase (E.M. Cioran, Schopenhauer, basically folk who made a living out of angst.)

FILMS, not "movies": Former trash enthusiast; I don't really have the time any more.

Shows: Vic and Bob, Armando Iannucci, Chris Morris, The League of Gentlemen, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Sometimes I like to go see the stand-up comedy people. Most recently was Bridget Christie.

Music: Riffs, synths, catchiness, miserable, weirdness, haunting vocals - in any combination. Examples? Urfaust, Dystopia, Roxy Music, King Dude, Menace Ruine, Bronski Beat, Nico. And all that new 80's-sounding stuff like Carpenter Brut and Perturbator.

Food: I'm kind of a dick when it comes to food - I'm not very adventurous. Perhaps I could be converted. Serious beer geek though.

Games: HAHA I ADDED A CATEGORY. I enjoy PC gaming when time allows. Eternal loves are Burnout 3: Takedown, Ninja Gaiden, the Stalker games, Dark Souls, the Deus Ex games, Fallout 3/New Vegas, Hotline Miami, The Binding of Isaac, and Spelunky.
The six things I could never do without
Voluntary solitude
Beer
Nicotine
Vimto
Internet
My (terrible) eyesight
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Yeast, seriously. If I'm actually capable of saving money. Then crying at my bank statements. Starting a tiny brewery.

I can be found shouting into the void @awfulperson
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually staying in. I prefer going out on weeknights as they're quieter. I consider "sitting down" and "being able to speak and be heard" to both be beneficial in social situations.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've struggled with my mental health since my mid-teens, BUT I've finally found the antidepressants that are right for me, so shit's looking up!

AND... I haven't seen Game of Thrones. And I'm in no hurry to watch it. IDGAF.
You should message me if
You want to go twos on a Lindemans/Mikkeller Spontanbasil. IT'S FUCKING EXPENSIVE OK
