Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Good morning, good afternoon, good evening, wherever you may be. I
hope your morning/day/evening has been
productive/enjoyable/chilled/drunken (delete as appropriate).
In case you are wondering, my name is Jim (I know, cunning nickname
huh?) I'm in my early 40s, never married, no children or psychotic
ex's. I work in Marketing and love my job that occasionally takes
me to the US and Far East).
Why am I on OKC? I'll cut to the chase - I'm looking much more for
companionship and friendship than I am involving the immediate
exchange of bodily fluids. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a monk or
had part of my anatomy removed forcibly - I'd just value someone
(female) that I could spend time with, make laugh and that would
enjoy witless banter about rubbish TV more than would wham, bang,
thank you ma'am.
What do I bring to the party? I don't kid myself that I have George
Clooney looks but I'd like to think my ability to get a giggle,
keen intellect and predilection for all manner of geek-ery (films,
TV, comics) make me fun company.
Whilst my profile says Watford, I actually live a few miles further
north but spend more of my time in Watford working. Draw a triangle
between Watford, Milton Keynes and Oxford - this is what I consider
to be my home turf.
C'mon and say hello if any of my oddness appeals or you just find
me strangely fascinating.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Work as Marketing/Product Director for a Consumer Electronics
company. Best job in the world as it satisfies my gadget lust,
allows me to show off AND get paid for it.
Otherwise I am not on a voyage of self discovery and hugging trees.
I'm here to laugh, enjoy and have fun - however and whenever I can.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh. Drawing. Science, maths and nerdy subjects.
Answering 'who was the actor' in that film questions and six
degrees of Kevin Bacon. Listening to friends problems and then
watching them do nothing about them. Debating with Jehovah's
Witnesses. Naming all the Bond films in order. Spinning my eyes.
Making a decision.

A big film fan so too many movies to list. But let's start with the
original Star Wars, Jaws, The Godfather, Se7en, Airplane! and the
TV - Family Guy, The IT Crowd, Homeland, 24, South Park, The Thick
of It, Game of Thrones, House of Cards (both original and new),
Books i can no longer devour with the relish I once had but
currently enjoying Stephen King's 'Dr Sleep.'
Music - Queen to Eminem, Holst to ABBA. yeah I know it's a cliche
but hey, true nonetheless.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
At the moment just one: my right arm. I broke it 6 weeks ago and
being right-handed I've been in hell ever since. You know those
nature programmes that bang on how the body compensates when you
are injured. It's all rubbish, I clean my teeth and I look like I
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My alternate life as an Oscar-winning film director. Who watches
daytime TV doesn't want to top themselves after a week? Why the
news tells as off the impending obesity crisis yet all there is on
TV are food programmes. it. Who shot JFK? Will I shoot Bono? Are
new Star Wars films a good idea? I know, it's all deep stuff.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Vegging out after a typical working week, or grabbing a few beers
if I'm feeling adventurous. Rock n' roll!
