My self-summary
All persons, living and dead, are purely coincidental.

I have been described as, "A little bit bohemian" and as a "screaming heterosexual." Make of that as you will.
What I’m doing with my life
Work wise, IT stuff mostly. Stumbling from contract to contract, desperately hoping for some sort of full time work. I seem to recall at the beginning of my working life, I had such things as 'paid leave' - or at least, I'm fairly certain I didn't dream it.

Otherwise, reading a lot. Trying to reconnect with my camera. Occasional forays into dilapidated buildings in aid of the previous. Reading a lot of tech blogs. Looking at some of the stranger theories about how the universe will end. Looking more and more into information theory.
I’m really good at
all sorts of things. Computers. Fixing computers. Parleying fixing computers into alcohol. A fair knowledge of the history of the barter system and gift economies.

I play chess enthusiastically, if not well. I like canasta, telling people I'm a dab hand at canasta, and have a penchant for using words like 'penchant' whenever I can.

I also have an odd ability to list the order of tracks on albums I particularly fancy.
The first things people usually notice about me
At a guess, I'd say the perpetually bemused expression.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I probably read more sci fi than anything, but there have been a lot of non sci fi influential authors that I consider favourite reads. Such like Kurt Vonnegut, Milan Kundera, Gabriel García Márquez (Vale! He died recently), Umberto Eco, Joseph Heller.... Well, the list could go on. My recent reads have been Natsume Soeski's, 'I Am A Cat', Jeanette Winterson's, 'The Daylight Gate' and Marek Krajewski's 'Death in Bresnau'. I'm a big fan of Iain M Banks sci fi stuff, and a so-so fan of his 'normal' stuff. There are also some warhammer 40k books - specifically the Ciaphas Cain series - that are wonderfully fun to read.

Music, is a similarly long list. All I can say is that growing up I fancied (and still fancy) the music of The Celibate Rifles, Fugazi and Swervedriver. Rosetta Stone's 'Chemical Emissions' is *always* on whatever music device I happen to be using at the time. As is PWEI's, 'Dos Dedos Mis Amigos'. Although anything by those two previous bands is bound to be magnificent. There will also be at least one Cure album on said device.

Black Cab, anything by Mikelangelo, anything by Hans Zimmer for that matter, late 80s/early 90s Australian punk stuff, Tom Waits, almost anything done by J G Thirwell (almost), Einsturzende Neubaten, Dead Can Dance and Covenant. I also think The Upper Crust are one of the most underrated rock bands in the history of music:

Shows? I love theatre, and try to get to as much of it as possible. As to television, I love Sherlock Holmes stuff(BBC with Benedict Cumberbatch and Granada with Jeremy Brett - still not sure what to make of the American one with Johnny Lee Miller), anything remotely related to British comedy (except for Steve Coogan - for some reason I instinctively want to throttle him), 30 Rock, Arrested Development, X Files, Better off Ted, Farscape, Star Trek, Stargate Universe, Fringe, Continuum, and of late I've been enjoying Black Sails.

Also, anything done by Horrible Histories is automatically awesome - I am filled with awe.

Food? Often what is shoved in front of me. I enjoy cooking, especially with a lot of butter.
The six things I could never do without
What possible scenario am I going to be without six things? On a plane? Well, then comfortable pants and a decent set of headphones.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My brain is a clever, sometime distant and often tangential thing.

For example, when looking at this question, I thought, "Well, you do spend some time noodling around with astrophysics". This was instantly followed up with, "What's the etymology of 'noodling' in this context?"

Incidentally, if anyone can answer the above question, you'll be a relief to a part of my brain, and my sanity.
On a typical Friday night I am
At my favourite bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
For an embarrassingly large fraction of my life, I mispronounced 'Hyperbole' as hyper-bowl.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–42
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
...you feel like it? Want to? Wouldn't-normally-but-after-these-shots-of-tequila?

I'm also a big fan of poly interactions. The older I get, the less willing I am to enter into anything where choice is restricted. I am more than happy to enter into dialogue with just about anybody on this topic.
