I'm not your average bloke - I'm a tad eccentric and exist in some kind of pocket-dimension between quietly reserved and obnoxious enthusiasm, depending on who I'm with.
I like Theme Parks and going to the theatre, and there is never enough time in the week to get everything done.
I dislike people not listening to me and awkward silences, since I will just talk to fill in the gaps, but I generally prefer to be the one who says one witty thing rather than says a lot and means little.
I am improbable, awesome, and modest
I work as a Customer Service Manager, which basically means I get to make people happy for a living, if you consider exchanging a chipped vase the route of all happiness (which a worrying amount of people seem to). Despite my cynicism, I actually quite enjoy my job.
I watch a lot of comedy, including Family Guy, Futurama, American Dad and Qi. My favorite comedian is Bill Bailey. Somehow I found myself dragged into the phenomenon of watching Lost and 24. I loathe reality television (possible exception: the beginning of X-Factor when all the contestants are rubbish).
I like science fiction and horror movies: Sin City, The Dark Crystal, Sweeney Todd, 28 Weeks Later and pretty much anything by Miyazaki. Horror is best at the cinema.
My favorite books are 1984, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Eats, Shoots and Leaves, and Last Chance to See, and my favorite plays: King Lear, Not I, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Waiting for Godot.
Guests at my fantasy dinner party would be: Shakira, Frank Zappa, Marilyn Monroe, Bill Bailey, and Gandalf the Grey.
My digital radio.
Other than that, I think I could pretty much get by.
To be honest, when I'm not deep in thought about any of the above, I spend most of my time thinking about how to make people laugh or happier. I'll admit it's an advantage that my job requires me to do so.
I like to argue, but only over trivial things.
I don't spend much time thinking about where to go or what to do, I just like to let things evolve. Never been much for planning my day.
On a typical Friday night I work late.
You'd like to argue with me about philosophy, theology, etc, etc.
You like Miyazaki and want to talk about his best film (clearly Nausicaa).
You *don't* consider a mended vase the route of all happiness.
You want to.
