And for those who are still here after reading that first paragraph....
Most of the time I'm friendly, polite and generally capable of coming across well in a conversation with just about anyone. On occasion and when pushed I can curse in a manner that Malcolm Tucker would be proud of, just thought it fair to warn you......
And now for the fun bit: I'm Craig, I'm from Scotland (Glasgow during the academic year, the south of Fife at other times) and I may yet tweak this thing to the point that I don't sound like a complete idiot. I think I'm reasonably normal, albeit with a healthy dose of sarcasm and a fairly well balanced head on my shoulders, others may disagree. It's more fun to come to your own conclusion though, isn't it? At any rate, I try to make my way through life without screwing up too much.
I used to be a History student, a subject I'm mildly fascinated with and enjoy a great deal. While I deeply wish I could still be, that part of the grand plan is on hold for a bit. My final year was focussed rather tightly on Irish history, which is a bit odd as I've no connection with the island at all.
Don't let the history geekery put you off though, I absolutely love learning so chances are you know something I'd find interesting. Does make pub quizzes good places to drag me along to, and defeating a team of lecturers in a history pub quiz is something I will be eternally proud of! My knowledge of trivia is wide ranging and varied which can be a little tedious but it does also mean I'm pretty good at holding a conversation with pretty much anyone. You can bore me to tears by mentioning football or the X factor though.
I know that everyone else seems to put it here but I'm rather shy, I never seem to know what to say to kick off a conversation with someone new. Once I manage it, though, getting me to stop can be hard. Around the right people I can happily talk for hours, setting the world to rights over a pint or three or just letting things run, great way to spend time.
That's as much of a summary as I can be bothered producing just now, there'll be more later.
I am deadly handsome, phenominally rich, and might be lying
