Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
It seems the vast majority of profiles on here go to lengths to
show how much fun the person writing is. I would like to dispel
straight away any such notions you might have of me. I rarely leave
the house when the sun is shining, I hate the things you like and I
don't really care for animals or children (I mean, I recognise
their right to exist and to avoid suffering and all, it's just I
don't really need them existing near me.) I have neither read nor
seen Game of Thrones and most likely never will.
I am not, however, a fussy eater.
There probably is more to me...I hope...
Too many people (It seems...) put too much weight in to whether a
person has depth or not. What does that even mean? You could have
someone who is superficially a very arrogant, sarcastic, funny
person when first met but when you get to know them a little better
they reveal themselves to have a deep insecurity and desire for
approval from others. Then when you've known them a little longer
you see that they have a 'remarkable inner resilience' that
sustains them through even the hardest of times and blah blah
blah... There you have three layers that would apparently
constitute 'depth' but its fundamentally boring and covers about as
much area as a test-tube. I much prefer to think of myself as being
more like a puddle than a test-tube, all spread out there on the
surface with little to nothing underneath but covering quite a few
bases and capable of creating something rather pretty when
reflecting the right kind of light.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just moved back to Bournemouth after an excellent decade or so of
living in Brighton and, most recently, London. Glad to be back here
on the brink of Spring when everything starts to feel alive again.
The trouble is that most of my friends have long since moved away
and I no longer know where the Cool Places to hang out are any
more. If anyone can give me any pointers on where that might be it
would be most appreciated.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Catching things. Sadly I'm lousy at throwing and running so have
never been able to pursue a vocation catching objects

Most of my friends would say they don't remember first noticing me.
I was just there one day and never left. Like a freckle.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Twin Peaks was a good show...
I find I get along best with people who can at least appreciate a
bit of Prince and Abba and I'm pretty sure I still agree with my 16
year old self in believing The Birthday Party were the greatest
band of all time.
Here is a long and boring list of music that I like:
Whilst I consider myself only semi-literate I'm currently reading
The American Way of Death by Jessica Mitford and it is
I can enjoy almost any film in the right company (In brief, I
probably like most of the same ones you do) but I guess I like sort
of campy stuff most of the time e.g. Mommie Dearest and The Bad
Seed. I like documentaries best of all.
Here is a long and boring list of films and T.V. shows I either
like to watch or would like to watch:
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I could live without them but I really appreciate resealable bags
and screws that are magnetised.
Update: Those washing up scourers where you pour dish-liquid in to
the handle and it disperses through the sponge as you do the
cleaning. I love those. I believe they are conclusive evidence of a
Update 23/04/2014: Packets of butter that have marks every 25g to
help with measuring out weights for baking. I hope you can see a
pattern emerging here.
Update 2015: That pointy bit on the cap of tubes of tomato purée
that you can use to pierce the seal. Marvellous.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Gettin' real sassy.
Drinking. Then crying. Then drinking some more. (Note to self:
consider editing this later.)
On two recent Friday nights I have gone to see Sparks and John
Waters performing in town. If I one day get to see Ron Swanson/Nick
Offerman somewhere I will have completed the trifecta of my all
time favourite moustaches. I remain hopeful.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once joined an online dating site.
I spend an absurd amount of my alone time listening to Stephen Fry
narrating the Harry Potter series whilst I play solitaire.

Seriously, if you'd like to start a conversation.
If you'd be interested in meeting up somewhere other than a crowded
pub where there's no guarantee of getting a seat and the volumes so
loud that the deepest depth of conversation we'd be able to reach
is, 'So...going to any festivals this year?'
